SNOWBALL EARTH

VOLUME 05

With Sagami defeated, a new challenge now awaits Tetsuo—to find a new site for Mishima Mall and secure a safe route for everyone to move. Together with former ‘The Light of E-RDE’ members, Tetsuo and Yukio embark on a dangerous mission to find the perfect place to relocate, but what stands in their path are new and all-powerful enemies—the ‘human-eaters’!!

Can the duo work together with their former enemies to accomplish their goal?

In the year 2025, huge beasts from beyond the galaxy attacked Earth. In the war that followed, humanity fought back with a giant robot named Yukio, piloted by Tetsuo Yabusame, a boy barely old enough to go to school. Ten years later, the massive alien swarm closed in on humanity’s homeworld and Tetsuo and the Earth defense force deployed for the final battle with the invading horde. They lost…

“Yukio… I’m going to make a friend.” A shy boy named Tetsuo. The only thing he had was a giant robot named Yukio. They became “saviors” in the fight against the galactic monsters coming from outer space.

After the final battle, Tetsuo returns to Earth for the first time in ten years and witnesses an astonishing world. It’s a frozen Earth (named Snowball Earth), where the entire land is covered in snow and ice, being turned into a deadly world!

What happened to the human race? And will Tetsuo be able to fulfill the promise he made to Yukio?
