      The time background is 50 years later, after Shirotsugu Ladhatt who was called ‘The wings of Honneamise’ had returned from space.
      It is the story about the knights who lost their authority of the past and disappeared from the main stage of the world but still keep fighting duels for the honor at the risk of their lives.
      It was in the medieval times of the ‘Honneamise’ kingdom which is located on another earth…..
      The countries eventually had got the balance by passing through the numerous wars. And they delegated ‘the social order’ to the judicial system and ‘honor and justice’ to the duels, to protect the breakable and fragile world like amnion.
      It was in the medieval times of the ‘Honneamise’ kingdom which is located on another earth…..
      The winner of duel was conferred high position and wealth by the king. As the result, many professionals hired by someone to fight duels for money appeared. And among them, the most outstanding knight was awarded the noble title as symbol of his family and became a aristocratic class.
      Before long, the stronger nation was newly established with the judicial system and the rights to fight duels became to be regulated and eventually the rights were passed on to their descendants so that only those who have the noble titles are allowed to fight duels.
      After that, with the movement for modernization, the format of duel has changed from horses to flights but duels are still used as the ceremony for the honor. However, the noble class or duel are not indispensable anymore in the world of modern pop culture.
      Now people trade the noble title, and the duels are abused for gambling and gradually disappearing in the brilliant modern world.
