At one point, though, the peculiar power known as Psyqualia awakens within Aichi. It’s the ultimate power that allows Aichi to be in control of his fights by putting him in synch with the planet Cray… However, the power is too strong and Aichi becomes addicted to it, thereby losing himself.

At the national tournament, Aichi’s team defeats AL4, the team led by Ren Suzugamori, Japan’s strongest fighter, and wins the championship. One day not long afterwards, Aichi and his teammates receive an invitation to participate in the Vanguard Fight Circuit. They’ve broken through the shell that is Japan and want to fly through Asia, where the world’s most powerful teams are waiting for them!
