Sōsei no Aquarion Love is set in the spring of 1966. Shin Tsukishima, who is travelling to get a crystal radio, meets Yuno Kawazu, a girl crying on a beach in Izu. Shin and Yuno are guided by the Book of Genesis and meet each other halfway. The boundaries between three worlds begin to distort.
At the Neo Diva Academy, Amata and other Element candidates reassemble to prepare for a new battle. When souls that transcend dimensions gather, a new myth flows through the skies of Showa-era Japan.
