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—introducing itself as hyperagent Gridman—behind an old computer screen. To Yuuta’s surprise, Rikka can’t hear Gridman, nor can she see the ominous monsters that loom over a thick mist that shrouds the city on the outside.
Another giant monster materializes in the city and proceeds to wreak havoc. In the midst of 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 who is responsible for his appearance.
