In Sternbild City, people of all races and ethnicities live together with people with superhuman abilities called NEXT, who use their NEXT abilities to keep the peace. Heroes wear sponsor logos, help solve crimes and save people to improve their companies’ image and gain hero points. Their activities are aired on the popular show ‘Hero TV’ where heroes try to climb the annual leaderboard and strive to be the ‘Hero King’. Kaburagi T. Kotetsu and Barnaby Brooks Jr. continue their heroic activities to enhance the image of their company, Apollon Media, as well as maintain the peace. The character system that originated in Sternbild City has already been adopted in places around the world. As more and more characters appear, a new character enters Sternbild City. Now that they are more veteran heroes, will Kotetsu and Barnaby be able to live up to the expectations placed on them?!
