Their enemies are “Kyouryuu.” They are giant living creatures shrouded in mystery. In order to face these enemies that they have never seen, the children spur each other on in robots known as “FranXX.” By riding one, they believe that they can prove their own existence.

There is a boy referred to as a “former prodigy.” His code number is 016 and his name is Hiro. Now, though, he is a dropout. Hiro’s existence is now considered “not essential.” It is said that if you cannot ride a FranXX, then you might as well not exist.
