Ohtori Tsurugi, the man who killed Don Armage with his own hands and earned himself the title of President of the Space Federation.

In order to resolve this mystery, Tsurugi will personally take over the Jark Mater broadcasting waves, and establish himself as "The man who killed Don Armage", to the whole universe! Just then, Jark Matter's top executive arrives, Vice-Shogun Tecchu! Tsurugi endangers the lives of innocent people while fighting him, Lucky protects them, but Tsurugi insists that in order to save the universe, some sacrifice is needed.
