Story Synopsis:

What lies beyond this sky?

It was a time when the sky still belonged to dragons with giant wings.
In the Republic of Sylvana, where the memories of the fierce war that broke out with a neighboring country a few years ago are still fresh in the minds of the people, there were those who challenged the speed of the dragons in an attempt to wrest control of the sky from them.

Karl Schnitz, a pilot with exceptional piloting skills, was the first in the world to fly a jet-powered aircraft, the Blitzvogel. He challenges the unprecedented realm of flying at a speed that exceeds that of the fastest dragon, the Kaiser Drache.

This is the story of one man’s dream to seek and fight for freedom.
