Ten months have passed since the epic battle between the heroes and the terrorist Jake Martinez. Tiger and Barnaby, now hailed as the heroes who saved Stern Bild, find their lives occupied with interviews and other media events.
To protect Stern Bild and its people, the heroes have accepted Jake's challenge to a one-on-one death match. Each hero in turn falls before Jake's mysterious power, until Barnaby steps up to challenge him.
Barnaby has finally tracked down the whereabouts of his parents’ killer. Meanwhile, Kotetsu decides to take some time off to visit his daughter Kaede, but on the way he encounters the bombing of a bridge.
Huang Pao-Lin, a.k.a. Dragon Kid, is a tomboy who doesn’t like to dress in cute girly fashion. Meanwhile, Agnes assigns Kotetsu to babysit the mayor’s infant son, but the baby takes a liking to Pao-Lin instead.
Kotetsu criticizes Barnaby for losing his cool and allowing a mysterious NEXT to kill the culprit they were chasing. It is later revealed that for years, Barnaby has searched for “Ouroboros,” the single clue to the killer of his parents.
A documentary on Barnaby’s personal life is being filmed to help market the new hero’s growing popularity. Believing that a hero’s job is to protect the city, Kotetsu is reluctant to take part in his partner’s PR.
Stern Bild is a metropolitan city where superheroes called NEXT help to maintain peace. Sporting sponsor logos on their suits, these heroes work to solve cases and save people’s lives in order to earn Hero Points.
