Shortly after the incident with Grosse Augen, beast (kaiju) attacks are on the rise across Japan, though there are ample numbers of superhumans to deal with them. Fuurouta discovers that one of his friends is secretly feeding a tiny beast called GaGon, and through him the Superhuman Bureau meet up with “Beastly Radio Wave”, a small group of peaceful beast enthusiasts. However, Jiro soon discovers that the radio group is actually using GaGon to clone several giant beasts for their own purposes. One of the beasts grabs Jiro, forcing him to unleash the locks holding in his own superhuman power as he burns the radio station to a crisp.

In the year Apotheosis 41 (AD 1962), Earth is currently home to superhumans and paranormal phenomena of all kinds, from aliens and magical girls to ghosts and transforming robots. However, official knowledge of these beings is officially kept under wraps by the governments of the world. The Japanese government has quietly set up the “Super Population Research Laboratory”, a.k.a. the “Superhuman Bureau”, to keep track of all superhuman beings in the country and eliminate them if they pose a threat to humanity. In the present, Bureau member Jiro Hitoyoshi finds himself recruiting new superhumans for the Bureau in the course of his job. However, five years later in Apotheosis 46, Jiro turns into a vigilante on the run from the Bureau while the rest of its members deal with the consequences of their earlier actions.
