Yuuta Hibiki wakes up in Rikka Takarada’s room and realizes two things: he has no memories and he can hear a mysterious voice calling his name from a nearby room. Upon further inspection, she finds a robot – who introduces himself as the hyper-agent Gridman – behind an old computer screen. To Yuuta’s surprise, Rikka can’t hear Gridman, nor can she see the ominous monsters looming over a thick fog that shrouds the city outside.
Another giant monster materializes in the city and proceeds to wreak havoc. Amidst the confusion, Yuuta is drawn back to the old computer and merges with Gridman. Suddenly, he appears in the middle of the battle and is forced to fight the monster. Together with Rikka and his partner Shou Utsumi, Yuuta forms the “Gridman Alliance” to defeat the monsters plaguing the city and find the one responsible for his appearance.
