#01 Howl at the Moon

A group of humanoid machines, "mobile suit FLATs," descends to Earth, and riding one such machine are three youths: Loran Cehack, Fran Doll, and Keith Laijie. Loran reaches the town of Vicinity in the eastern part of North Ameria. He finds himself drowning in a river, but is fortunately saved by a pair of sisters, Kihel and Sochie Heim. That day happens to be the town's coming-of-age ceremony where girls and boys who have reached the age of 15 carry a portable shrine towards the nearby Mount Ark. Representing the youths at the foot of the mountain, Kihel takes on the main role of the coming-of-age ceremony in front of the "White Doll" statue. Loran watches and is deeply moved by the performance. After working in a mine that the sisters' father runs for two years, Loran is promoted to working as a chauffeur. The day of his promotion, he meets Guin Sard Rhineford, the son of the leader of the principality of Inglessa and the one who saved him from coyotes two years ago.

Synopsis

For 2000 years, a separate race of humanity has lived on the moon.
Known as ”the Moonrace,” their technology is leaps and bounds beyond those that stayed behind on the Earth’s surface. Now seeking to return to their original home, the Moonrace send three teenagers, Loran, Keith, and Fran, down to Earth on a reconnaissance mission to test the viability of its environment.

After spending a year on Earth, Loran has become good friends with Sochie and Kihel, daughters of the prestigious Heim family, and he looks forward to fully integrating into Earth society. But before Loran gets the chance to make his report, the Moonrace launch a surprise attack. Earth’s primitive airplanes are no match for the superior power of the Moonrace’s mobile suits. However, in the midst of the initial attack, Loran and Sochie uncover a long-forgotten relic: a white mobile suit. As a Moonrace, Loran is quickly able to grasp the basics of piloting it, but by doing so, he inadvertently places himself in the middle of a war.
