Wakaba Saegusa is the captain of the New Oshima Academy's kendo club for girls. Her father was a was extremely skilled kendo fighter and being trained under his wing have made her into a child prodigy of the sport. She gave her club the national trophy in her first year and she takes winning in kendo extremely seriously. Though her pride took a huge hit when she met a strange girl who not could dodge one of her swings, she also caught one of Wakaba's attack and accidentally toppled Wakaba over. She would be soon to find out that this strange girl was Akane Isshiki, a new transfer student to New Oshima Academy. Wakaba started to pester Akane for a "rematch", and Akane in turn had to comply. Even though she got Akane to agree with a fight, it was stopped in the middle because of an alien force known as Alone attacking the city.
Under the attack so did Wakaba get to know that Akane can transform into a state of superhuman powers, which she uses to help the military to fend of these Alones. Upon this revaluation, so did Wakaba ask to help defeat the Alone, and to help so did Akane give her her own Operation Key, which makes her transform like Akane.
