The show's story takes place in the Earth calendar year of 2110, where humanity has expanded its frontier into space in a quest for resources. Advances in genetic engineering research allow humans to adapt to the new frontier, leading to the advent of evolved children such as the protagonist Izuru (played by Hiroki Aiba). Izuru enrolls in the academy city Gurantseere, where students learn to pilot robotic mecha to protect humanity from the invasion of a mysterious lifeform known as "Urugaru." As part of the MJP Project, Izuru is assigned the impossible task of leading Team Rabbits — the team nicknamed the "Zannen 5" (Disappointing Five): Toshikazu Asagi (Shintarō Asanuma), Tamaki Irie (Yuka Iguchi), Kei Kugimiya (Yōko Hikasa), and Ataru Suruga (Junya Ikeda).
Keitaro Motonaga (Katanagatari, Jormungand) directed the series at the studios Dogakobo and Orange. Hisashi Hirai (Mobile Suit Gundam Seed franchise) designed the characters, and Reiko Yoshida (K-ON! franchise) was in charge of the series scripts. Chiaki Ishikawa performed the ending theme song "Sayonara tte Iu." The series ran for a total of 24 episodes and Keitaro has stated that he would like to work on a second season of Majestic Prince if it was ever green-lit.
