Here’s a summary of volume 2.
“Shirogane Takeru, an ordinary Japanese teenager, was transported to an Earth under attack by alien creatures called BETA. Like any would-be hero, he volunteers to save the world, only to fail miserably in the attempt. Now he’s stuck in a time loop, and forced to watch again and again as his friends die and he fails to complete his mission. After countless iterations, though, it’s finally time for things to change…
Now firmly a part of this new world, Takeru begins his training to fight the BETA. With his knowledge from past loops, he already knows how to pilot the giant robot Tactical Surface Fighters, and he’s ready to help his squad graduate training in record time. He’s also got an idea for a plan to make Earth’s robots even better…
Intricate geopolitical drama, giant robots, skin-tight pilot suits, and more await in the second volume of the highest-rated visual novel of all time!”
