In an attempt to combat the opposition’s overwhelming pressure and put an end to the massive casualties, the army forms a special unit called Wyvern, or W-0, composed of former Japanese citizens referred to as “Elevens.”

When a European regiment attempting to recapture a crucial city is pinned down by the enemy, it’s up to W-0 to bail them out. Among those selected for the rescue operation is Lieutenant Akito Hyuuga, known as “Hannibal’s Ghost” due to his prowess on the battlefield.

However, the supposed rescue mission becomes suicidal when, in an attempt to take out as many Britannians as possible, the commanding officer initiates the Knightmare’s self-destruct sequence. In its aftermath, Akito finds that he is the last one standing…
