The world is being attacked by the mysterious beings called Victims — giant space monsters sent to destroy Zion and all its inhabitants. Zion's only defence are the five Goddesses — sentient mecha, each bonded to her own pilot and repairer. With a high pilot turnover, it is up to the Goddess Academy (GOA) to train young candidates with special abilities called EX to one day become a pilot of a Goddess. Candidate #88, Zero has joined the GOA and deep, dark mysteries and secrets soon unfold between Zero, the pilots and candidates, and the Goddess Ingrid as the Victims attack again. We rejoin Zero and the Goddess pilots in the thick of battle, continuing to safeguard the planet.
