Summary

ShounenSet in an alternative 1969 Japan, a special group of teenagers has been gathered together under a secret government operation known as Aegis, to fight an enemy trying to take over the earth... called simply, "Invader". The Invader can turn ordinary citizens into zombies under their control, and only the Aegis agents, called the Gatekeepers, have the special ability to open the "Gate" separating the Invader's dimension and our own, and be able to eradicate them. The show opens with ordinary high school student Ukiya Shun witnessing an Invader attack, and quickly realizing that he is one of those with special power, is indoctrinated into Aegis. Each agent has a different ability and method of attack, everything from magic arrows to hallucinogenic piano music!

To make matters worse, the two had gone to grade school together,

Episode summary:

Racing along the Japanese country-side in a bullet train, Shun, Ruriko and Reiko seek out the next candidate, Banba Chotaro (a.k.a. Bancho). Although Bancho doesn’t manifest any gate ability, he appears to have incredible strength, which he often uses to pick fights with would-be thugs. Meanwhile, a nearby company is threatening to fill the local salt refinery field. A closer investigation reveals an Invader influence, resulting in the gang once again banding together for a big showdown. All it will take is teamwork, guts, and a really big secret weapon (compliments of Megane, official A.E.G.I.S. mechanic)!
