Episode 1: Beautiful Agent
In the future, after the WWD (World Wide Disaster), 95% of the Earth is covered with water. In Tokyo, there exists an industry solely based on recovering items from the sunken skyscrapers and labs. These people are called "salvagers" and this is how we first meet Aika and Rion.
The two ladies are busy attempting to recover a data box when there is a mysterious explosion on the ocean floor. They escape, but the box is damaged and they only get half of the fee. This drives them to accept a strange job with very high payoff. They are to locate an energy called "lagu". They will be paid for any data or samples they can obtain. But before they can even leave the first meeting, they are attacked by a gang of women in school-type uniforms. Aika displays remarkable skill in hand to hand battle as she defeats the girls.As the fight ends, Nena, the leader of the gang, warns the salvagers not to pursue this assignment or they will be killed.
Back at home, Aika treats the viewers to a gratuitous shower scene (to complement the panty-crotch shots that are in nearly every cell of this film) and opens the closet to reveal a mysterious golden bustier.The next morning, she dons the gold undergarment and heads out to the airport. She receives sealed orders and takes off. Soon Rion, who had stowed away on th e plane, appears and they have a brief argument. Before long, they encounter a strange ship that fires upon them. It is the ship of Mr. Hargen and Nena, who are also in pursuit of the lagu energy.
A pitched air battle between Nena and Aika ensues and ends when the lagu energy appears and knocks out the electrical systems on both planes. Nena ejects but Aika has a different solution. Her costume morphs, against Aika's wishes, into a very skimpy outfit made out of liquid metal. With its help, she able to restart the engine and land safely.
But they are not out of danger yet, for as the episode ends, Mr. Hargen's ship glides up next to the damaged fighter, with Hargen cradling Nena in his arms.
Episode 2: Naked Mission
The scene opens were the first episode ends, with Hargen and his all-girl crew looming over Aika and Rion. The effort of saving them both has left Aika and her bioform armor depleted. The costume reverts to its rest shape and Aika collapses.
Hargen captures both Aika and Rion and has them brought aboard his ship. There Rion is stripped and Aika is forced to wear a revealing uniform.
Gusto, a competing salvager who was shot down by Nena, slips aboard the ship with the intent of rescuing both Aika and Rion. While he fights his way through the ship in search of them, Rion makes her (naked) escape. She ends up in the locker room where she acquires some racy underwear and a uniform. She also learns that Aika is aboard and most likely being bedded by Harrigan. But, instead of being molested by Hargen, she is receiving the standard "evil genius" tour and explanation. But after she rejects Harrigan's advances, she is thrown in the brig.
Rion, now roaming the halls trying to locate Aika, discovers a suspicious girl in a similar black uniform and she decides to follow her. Together, they enter a chamber to discover that contains the actual lagu energy. Lagu, it turns out, is the force responsible for the WWD and is Nature's method of reversing the damage man has caused to the environment. A white suited officer enters and demands an explanation why the two girls are in the forbidden area, but before they can answer her, an alarm sounds. It seems that Gusto's actions have finally attracted attention.
Meanwhile, Aika has decided the best way out of the situation is to allow Hargen to believe that she is willing to sleep with him in exchange for the lagu data. They meet in his elaborate bedroom and Aika undresses. But before anything happens, Gusto stumbles in. Thanks to the distraction, Aika escapes, with both the data and her armor. They flee to the deck of the ship, where they are trapped. Gusto wants them to leap overboard but Aika refuses to abandon Rion, who is lost down below with the strange girl.
Suddenly, Nena, drunk and jealous of Aika, appears on deck and attempts to stab Gusto. Aika blocks the blow but gets wounded in the shoulder. This causes the armor to awaken and attack in a fit of rage. Nena is tossed clear across the ship in one blow. But Hargen produces a weapon that uses the lagu energy and defeats Aika and her armor, which is where this episode ends.
Episode 3: Takeoff Position
The last episode ended with Gusto and an unconscious Aika facing what appears to be an inescapable situation; surrounded by armed guards and trapped at the bow of the ship. Suddenly, Barda, Gusto's partner, arrives in Aika's jet and spirits them away to safety. Rion, who was just on the other side of the guards from Aika, starts to cry out but is stopped by her mysterious companion, who turns out to be Maipia, a spy for the National Fleet.
Back on land, Aika awakes to realize that Rion is still trapped on the ship and vows to rescue her. Gusto is willing to help but Barda is not. Barda does, though, shed a little light on the mysterious liquid metal armor known as ultranate metal. She knows of an incident in the past involving Aika and her powers and describes it to Gusto.
Meanwhile, Hargen, having captured Aika's ultranate during the lagu gun attack, sets out to creating his own, superior ultranate, which he gives to Nena. He then orders the ship to move onto the second phase of their plan. The ship converts to a rocket and prepares for takeoff.
But first it has to pass through a blockade of naval ships. The navy craft fire but their shells are ineffective against Hargen's lagu-generated shield. Hargen returns fire and the ships are vaporized by his lagu-powered weapons.Maipia, realizing that she must stop Harrigan, returns to the Lagu generator with Rion. They attempt to stop the ship by opening the engine bay doors.
Maipia then dons a jet pack and prepares to escape. Rion, not wanting to be left behind, grabs onto Maipia's leg. This causes Maipia to go out of control and disappear out through the open bay doors while Rion is recaptured by guards.Outside, Barda, Gusto and Aika approach in the jet. They attempt to lower themselves into the open bay but the plane malfunctions and crashes. Barda ejects, while Aika slips into the bay, and Gusto collides with Maipia, who has been hanging on to a strut since crashing. Maipia and Gusto are both swept off the ship by the wreckage of the plane and fall into the ocean.
The last scene is Aika landing in the Lagu engine room. As she examines the generator, thin tendrils snake around her arms and hoist her into the air. She has a look of disbelief on her face as Nena, wearing her new Ultranate armor, steps out from the shadows.
Episode 4: A Flower Blooming In Space
With Hargen's ship now in space, things are getting desperate. Aika and Rion are onboard but the government wants to shoot the ship down. Rion's dad, Gusto, and Barda plead for a chance to rescue them and destroy the ship. They board a shuttle and takeoff.
Meanwhile, on the ship, Hargen puts phase three of his evil plan into action. The ship unfurls four enormous antennas and begins to beam lagu energy at the Earth. Rion, who is tied up in a very suggestive position and forced to watch, demands to know his plan. Harrigan explains that he intends to cause a series of massive earthquakes that will wipe humanity from the face of the Earth and then he will descend from the Heavens with his crew of women and repopulate the globe. Thus a new, more perfect society will be born. He invites Rion to join him but she refuses.
Back in space, Gusto and the rest of the crew manage, with some difficulty, to board Hargen's ship. On the ship, Rion escapes and Aika frees herself from Nena. Aika and Rion collide in the hallway and then head for the escape pod, unaware of the ongoing rescue attempt. But before they can reach the pod, Nena reappears and attacks.
This time, Aika's ultranate armor senses Aika's presence and races to join her. Once reunited with her suit, Aika and Nena engaged in fierce battle. Having slipped into the ship, Gusto, Maipia and Rion's Father begin their mission. Gusto splits off to plant explosives while Maipia shows the way to Papa. Nena and Aika's battle draws the attention of Hargen, who returns with the lagu beam gun.
Suddenly, Nena is overcome by a rejection of her body by the ultranate and is trapped within in a horrible, pulsating mass. Hargen tries to defeat Aika with the gun, but her armor has adapted. Then Nena, driven mad by the berserk ultranate, absorbs Hargen into the blob so that he will be hers alone.
Maipia and others arrive and everyone races back to the shuttle. They make it just time to escape before Hargen's ship is destroyed in spectacular explosion. The lagu buildup in the Earth fades away and all is safe.
