17-year-old high school student Morimiya Taishi dreams of becoming a top wheelchair track and field athlete. 24-year-old Fukai Kei, a graduate student and former track and field athlete, takes on the role of his coach. Taishi devotes himself to training with her. One day, a mysterious object falls from the sky accompanied by a thunderous sound. It is actually a spacecraft’s escape pod. A handsome alien named Guu, who escaped a massacre on Earth’s twin star by the Eltron tribe and has come to earth with a mission, is inside. A huge monster Lagert pursues him and attacks the small factory that Taishi’s father runs in the outskirts of Tokyo. At that moment, the Mode Shifter that Guu hands over to Taishi lights up and envelopes Taishi’s body. His whole body and wheelchair are covered in special protective gear. Transformed into Super Hero Gandeen, Taishi charges at the monster.
