"Are wa yume? Soretomo maboroshi? Iie are wa magiremonai genjitsu. So subetewa ano hi, tarot card ni koi no yukue wo kiita toki kara hajimatta".
Young Kanzaki Hitomi is an energetic high school student on the school track team. One day however while getting timed on the 100 m dash, she sees a vision of an oddly dressed, young man standing in the middle of the track. As she runs through the image, she faints and sees a vision of huge mecha and a city in flames. Could it have all been a dream? Unfortunately for young Hitomi, however, the next day, the young man from her vision somehow ends up being transported to her world along with a dragon from his world of Gaia. After defeating the dragon, Van Fanel claims the dragon's energist crystal and the crystal somehow creates a link between the two worlds transporting Van back to his world. Only he is not alone in his return, for Hitomi is also somehow caught up in the beam of light and is transported to Gaia. And so the adventure begins...
