Movie tells a story about Japanese history, beginning with wars in 1600 AD. Starting with Japanese civil wars and the falling of Shogunate, after which comes the period of Japanese attacks on Russia and China, through the period of Great War and World War II. To this point the movie is made like a documentary, but after that it becomes a fiction. Japan prospers for the greater good of the mankind to the point when Earth is attacked by an alien force. Japan, trained for war, is the only one who can stand in the way of this much advanced war civilization. This is the time when they activate their robots, to fight against alien threat.
To set the mood of the film, traditional Japanese prints are used and music is traditional gagaku and bigaku music which is a particular note of that period. Music in this ending part is Hip-Hop, but there is a music theme that is a basic for all music made especially for the film.
