Vandread stars a young male protagonist named Hibiko, who is a laborer of the third class. He is forced on a bet to capture the high-tech robot called Vanguard. Later on, Hibiki finds himself caught in a crossfire with female pirates, causing the crew of his ship to evacuate, all except for Hibiki, who is forced to stay onboard and kept as a prisoner. In this universe, both men and women see each other as a different species altogether. Hibiki meets a woman named Dita, who is the female protangonist of the series. She finds him a bit odd and gives him the nickname, "Mr. Alien". The two other men who were also captured with Hibiki are Bart, who is a navigator, and Duelo, who is is professionally trainted doctor and engineer, leaving Hibiki with the role of the technician and mecha fighter in the crew. During their midadventures, they encounter many obstacles such as fighting with robotic machines, and other various creatures. The crew later encounters an enemy that has some unique alien data. After they run some tests on the alien's blood, they come to the conclusion that these creatures are out to capture humans so they can harvest their body parts for their own uses. They not only have this issue to worry about, but they later uncover some more information about these harvesters which reveals that the humans from Earth have been overrun by robots who plan to not only colonize Earth, but other planets as well. Hibiki later discovers that his grandparents had founded Mejere and Taraak and led the original colonists. They refused to give up on any of the future maturally born children to the Harvester, so they chose to sacrifice themselves for them, which created a mixed breed of humans and substitutes. This team isn't only looking to defeat the enemy, but they plan to warn as many people as they can about the upcoming invasion they may soon face.
