Three teenagers from the shelter are chosen to pilot three machines that come together to form the Musashi robot, made of a material called Megatronium alloy.
The series will move between the school life of the three boys and the battles aboard the robot.
Each different media in the project (game, anime or otherwise) will tell the story from the point of view of a different group of characters.
