Having succeeded in expanding into space, mankind has located multiple asteroids filled with resources which should allow for a safe and prosperous future. However, when a powerful galactic empire from Jupiter known as the Urgal begin to invade, this belief quickly fades.
Human life as we know it is on the brink of destruction, however a secret genetic manipulation project which aimed to create an evolved human race may be the last hope for mankind. The project was known as the MLT project which created a group of children known as Team Rabbits who can make use of state-of-the-art combat devices known as AHSMBs.
The team is sent out to the front line of the Global Defense Force (GDF) where they will face off against the powerful Urgal army - but they don't seem to trust each other very much, which puts some doubt on the future of mankind.
