The story is about a high school boy who has the ability to transform into a superhero known as Saint Utopia and secretly fights as Earth's Champion and fights for justice.


Susano Uemori is an average high school student has a normal life, normal friends, and normal problems, but he has an extraordinary secret, he fights as Neo-Tokyo's superhero and Earth's Champion, Saint Utopia. Since the invasion of the aliens known as the Golden invaded Earth, they have sent down many of their strongest fighters named the "champions" to fight against the human race for the control of Earth, and if they don't have a champion, they will be forced to lose their planet and be kicked out by any means necessary. The hero, Saint Utopia, was chosen as Earth's Champion since he was the only being on Earth strong enough to fight against the Golden.


Main ProtagonistsEdit

Susano UemoriEdit

A 1st-year student of Hashiba High School who enjoys slacking off in classes, playing video games, and oddly, sleeping on tree branches during sunny days. He is usually seen in school being followed by his childhood friend, Naruko Sanada, and is also often being chased by his unacknowledged rival, Yuuji Kazama. He is a strong believer of justice but acts like he cares nothing for it and would often ignore troublesome situations unless he is extremely angered. He is the best cook in the school. He transforms into Saint Utopia, a white masked and armored superhero with with the ability to activate his powers by saying the word "Ignition" before using the attack. His name "Susano" comes from the story of Yamata no Orochi, a myth about the Shinto god Susano-o. He is voiced by Mamoru Miyano.

Naruko SanadaEdit

Susano's best friend since they first met when they were only 3 years-old. She is a kind and motherly girl who treats Susano almost like her own son or husband and is overly protective of him. Before she and Susano were in middle school, she was very cowardly, shy, and would often ask Susano for many favors until one day when her mother told her to be more woman-like and show the boys that girls are strong too; this resulted in her acting too motherly towards Susano. She fell in love with Saint Utopia after he saved her life so she began to start acting like her old self after struggling to decide whether he loves Saint Utopia or Susano (who were later revealed to everyone to be the same person). She is voiced by Nana Mizuki.
