Original Story

In the year 2111, the solar system has been colonized. Kahmen Khamen wants to destroy the planet Jupiter in order to create a new star and change the solar system. Team J9 is assembled with Isaac Godonov, Blaster Kid, Stephen Bowie, and Angel Omachi. With the robot Braiger, they are a team that will handle any missions the police will not in the asteroid belt. Meanwhile, Earth has been divided into four power blocs: Omega, Red Dragon, Volga and Nubia. Nubia hatches a plan to rule the solar system in which Jupiter is destroyed, leading to the creation of over 30 smaller planets that could sustain life. However, such a plan would lead to the destruction of Earth.


The series was supposedly inspired by real-life scientific research and used a lot of Korean talents at the lower ranks of production. [1] The Braiger illustrator (Kazuo Komatsubara) was asked to create characters that looked like those in Lupin.
