The Megafauna, carrying Bellri and his comrades, leaves the Venus Globe in pursuit of the G-IT Corps. However, the war situation in the Earth Sphere has changed completely in the interim. The Capital Army, the Amerian forces, and the Dorette Fleet, which have been confronting each other outside the atmosphere, are now clashing even more violently around the untouchable sacred ship Kashiba Mikoshi.
Amid all this, Bellri wishes to end the tragedy and hatred that war creates. Knowing that humanity is in danger, his sister Aida turns her attention to a new age. But the Capital Army is now fighting alongside the G-IT Corps, while the Amerian forces, reinforced by the new strength brought by the Megafauna, attempt to ally themselves with the Dorette Fleet. Thus, a series of amazing mobile suits capable of sinking the largest space warships are thrown onto the battlefield one after another. The war in space intensifies and swallows countless human lives. As the warring forces are pulled by Earth’s gravity, the final battle continues into the atmosphere. Rising on the solid ground, the G-Self is now leading Bellri to the end of his long journey.
