The Plot of The Manga Series Gleipnir:
A high school boy named Shuichi Kagaya looks like an ordinary schoolboy, but he has a secret identity that should not be shared among people. He transforms into a “god mascot” whenever he feels like an emergency. One day, when the fire is all around and a girl named Claire Aoki was stuck in fire and lost her consciousness, Shuichi uses his power and saves her. He was not supposed to disclaimer his identity in front of anyone but unfortunately, Claire has been aware of his identity now. Claire goes to him and questions him about the confidentiality of his body that how he transforms.
They both are attacked by a “collector” who was searching for coins. Claire decides to fight with him but Shuichi runs away with her. Shuichi then deliberates over the mystery related to the coin but Claire then informs him that the collector wanted to harm them. She believed that something is special as well as meaningful about the transformation of Shuichi. She notices a zip at the back of Shuichi. As she unzips him she notices that Shuichi is empty inside and she can enter his body and can control him. She then decides to fight and thus defeats the attacker.
Now, they were aware that many more monsters can come to attack them. To be prepared they discover what else they both can do in his suit. Claire’s sister Elena had killed their parents and ran away. Claire uses Shuichi’s power of smell to find her out. They find her but Shuichi believed that she is not that terrifying as explained by Claire.
They fight with Elena, but she appeared to be more powerful than them. They get defeated by her, and Shuichi gets injured. To heal him up, Claire takes him to a hotel where they meet with an Alien. Alien then divulges the secret behind the transformation of Shuichi and also explains to them the meaning of the coins.
Alien informs them that their ship had crashed on a mountain. They visit and explore the mountain to find the coins. Fortunately, they found information about the collectors and their powers. Later, they fight with a monster, but the monster appeared to be more powerful than their hopes.
Claire believed that Elena has her group, so she also wanted to do the same. She was willing to join the group of Ikeuchi. Ikeuchi is a group led by a woman who wears a hockey mask but the group was weak. Despite being weak, Claire wanted to join the group as she needed companions and information. Claire had to make a special pact to keep their secrets so that she can join the group.
As Claire joins the group, Sayaka asks about Elena her, but she denies believing the fact that her sister is a murderer. Shuichi and Chihiro on the other hand, look for her wallet, where Shuichi feels the presence of Elena’s monster.
He becomes senseless and didn’t recollect anything about what had happened. Claire finds him in an unconscious state. As they proceed back to the group, he informs everyone that they encountered subordinates of Elena, but he doesn’t remember anything except that.
Sayaka informs that the crashed spaceship has been found by them and they should go to collect coins. To avoid the fight with enemies, Sayaka suggests going from the other side. Chihiro is confused that she should tell the truth that someone has already collected 100 coins. Claire feels on their way that something is wrong.
Shuichi and his team fight with a team of collectors. The collectors’ leader named Madoka put forward an offer to collect coins for them and join their team. Since they attacked one of the members of the collector, Madoka tells that he will kill one of them and allows them to choose any one among themselves who will die.
They decide to back off from the plan of finding the coins that day and somehow escapes from Madoka’s trap. Later, Shuichi visits Alien to ask him something. Kaito, who was once the friend of Elena had collected the coins and is protecting the mountain. After this, the last episode tells us about the incomplete ending. I hope the story of Season 2 will be the continuation of the story where Shuichi, Claire, and their team will land on the mountain where the ship crashed.
