From 24 April 2016 (followed by movie)
It is the year 2599. Before the departure for the Mars mission to eradicate a living organism on the planet in order to complete the Mars colonisation plan, there is a final aptitude test to choose 15 people from among candidates with the best ability to adapt to the environment. If the mission is a success, they can have what they want. Family, freedom, money, power … … Every candidate resolves to go to Mars so that they can break out of this damned life. Komachi Shokichi for a new life with his childhood friend Akita Nanao; a certain someone in atonement to his wife; and another for a plot that has not been discovered. To achieve their own desires and ulterior motives, the assembled candidates betray and cheat each other to become the crew members of the spaceship BUGS 2 in a fierce battle for survival. Who will be able to land on Mars?
