Thirty-one years have passed since the Far Eastern Branch of AEGIS and the Invaders waged war in Japan. The heyday of growth and prosperity have passed, the crime rate has increased, environmental problems have worsened, and the international situation has become increasingly unstable. Coupled with the decline in the morals of the Japanese people comes the emergence of a new type of Invader -- one that can absorb ordinary humans into its ranks.

Thirty-one 31 years have passed since the Far Eastern Branch of AEGIS and the Invaders waged war in Japan.

Added DiffLines:

* BodyHorror: humans' transformation into Invaders varies: sometimes the human visibly mutates into one, and sometimes the Invader ''climbs right out of the unfortunate person's overstretched mouth,'' leaving a wrinkly husk of skin and clothes on the ground. [[spoiler:And ''then'' there's Chinami and Nao, who turn by having their normal human skin flake off ''while'' their bodies mutate into monstrous Invader proportions -- all while we get [[SarcasmMode slow, loving shots]] of the process.]]

* EquivalentExchange: Gates run on this. Kageyama points out the fact that most Gatekeepers have suffered some kind of trauma earlier in life. Furthermore, [[spoiler:Kageyama's own Dark Gate has, over the years, eaten most of his insides, as well as a literal arm and leg, forcing him to take extensive medication and use ArtificialLimbs, the reason why Yukino never ages is because her Gate has consumed her 'time', and he also speculates that Yurei Shoujo's has already consumed her entire body.]]
