Chrome Shelled Regios is a post-apocalyptic anime series that features several teenagers with extraordinary powers. In this futuristic world, huge and terrible creatures, called Filth Monsters or Contaminoids, roam the Earth. In order to survive, humans have moved into armored mobile cities called Regios. In addition, people wield special weapons to battle the Filth Monsters. Only some people can wield these weapons, however. The weapons are powered by kei, which is a power source that is created by the user's body. Only people with high kei levels can become great warriors.

The main character of the series is Layfon Alseif. Layfon was an orphan who began competing in underground battle matches in order to earn money. It was soon discovered that he had an enormous kei power, and he was chosen to wield the Heaven's Blade. Only twelve people are selected to carry these super weapons. This instantly named Layfon as one of the best fighters in the world.

Layfon has other ideas about how he wants his life to be, however. He has little desire to fight and truly does not want to have anything to do with the Heaven's Blade. Layfon chooses to leave his fighting days behind and transfers to a school in a different city. He now hopes that he can live a normal life, and that no one will discover his past.

Unfortunately, Layfon's abilities are difficult to hide. It soon becomes apparent to the student council leader at Layfon's new school that he is special. In addition, it is not long before Nina Antalk, the captain of a Military Arts platoon, discovers his abilities. Nina immediately decides that she wants to harness Layfon's powers and use him in the battle for humanity. However, convincing Layfon that once again picking up his weapon is the right thing to do will be quite a challenge for Nina.
