The six-episode TV anime series is based on “an illusive unreleased scenario” by 73-year-old manga and anime creator Leiji Matsumoto (Space Pirate Captain Harlock, Space Battleship Yamato, Galaxy Express 999). The sci-fi story is set on a future Earth that has gone to ruins in a sea of sand, after an anomaly on the sun devastates the atmosphere and damages the ecosystem. The deterioration of DNA has reduced the birth rate drastically, which forces the government to make clones named “IC” (Ideal Children), as well as a new government body for IC. Sam Coin, one of the so-called “Sand Pirates” who trades in the desert, is looking for the unidentified gigantic object, “Ozuma”, which did his brother harm. One day, Sam rescued a beautiful girl, Maya, who was being chased by a sand destroyer ship owned by IC’s army “Shishiasu”. He took her with him to the Sand Pirates’ ship, Barudanosu, sitting on the Port of Oaaze. However, the Barudanosu is under seige by the sand destroyer ship and its overwhelming military might. The theme of the story is “to fight the limited timespan of life”.
