Synopsis

With the “Great SNS Era”, everyone can easily communicate their opinions and works to the whole world.

At the same time, it is no exaggeration to say that “the qualities of an individual” are the most questioned in the midst of the high praise for diversity, narrowing inequality, peace and preserving the environment.

There is more than one way to be a hero. There are as many hero “images” as there are people—-

This is a story of young people with power and aspirations aiming to shape themselves into heroes.
