Original Run: February 27, 1988 to February 21, 1989
"Friends, why have you all sold your souls to the devil!?"
Academia was a school for scientists located on Academia Island. One
day, Academia's three best students, Tsukigata, Senda, and Omura felt
their talents were being wasted at Academia and rebelled, aiming higher
and accepting a position in the organization VOLT. On the night of their
departure, Academia students Yuusuke Amamiya, Jou Oohara, Megumi Misaki,
Takuji Yano, and Mari Aikawa witnessed their actions. Tsukigata drew a
gun on the five and Takuji and Mari bravely stood before their friends
to shield them and were killed.
Prior to the pair's deaths, Takuji and Mari were working alongside
Yuusuke, Jou, and Megumi in creating a powerful suit strong enough for
space exploration -- the night of the murders was just as they were
seeing positive results. Witnessing the emotions of the three as they
weeped over their lost friends, Professor Hoshi decides to help them
complete their works, also while fearing that departure of Tsukigata,
Senda and Omura would most likely result in eventual harmful attacks on
people and that they should prepare.
Two years later, Academia is launching a shuttle for space exploration.
Just then, strange ships flock to the island and total it, taking down
the launching shuttle. Yuusuke, Jou and Megumi managed to be part of the
small handful of survivors, only to discover that the ones responsible
for the attacks were their former friends and classmates, Tsukigata,
Senda, and Omura! However, Tsukigata and the others do not anticipate
that Yuusuke, Jou, and Megumi will now use their project with Takuji and
Mari, becoming the Liveman to fight against their former friends and the
evil organization to which they've now pledged allegiance. Later in the
series, they are joined by Tetsuya and Junichi, younger brothers of the
late Takuji and Mari.
