TrappedInAnotherWorld, Asap finds that the boots have [[TheChosenOne chosen him as their new bearer]], and is labeled a "Holy Warrior" by Sakomizu. Sakomizu himself was a WorldWarTwo kamikaze pilot who witnessed the [[NukeEm nuclear bombing of Hiroshima]] and was flung into Byston Well where he had become TheChosenOne, fought a HumongousMecha war, and wound up king of his very own country. However, Sakomizu is now obsessed with returning to the surface world, and upon doing so, is unable to bear the sight of Tokyo as it is today -- covered in concrete and steel, and being influenced by the Americans who destroyed his hometown.
