Kuromukuro (「クロムクロ」; "Black Corpse, Black Relic") is an anime set in contemporary Japan around the northern central coast (Toyama Prefecture, Hokuriku region) of the main island of Honshu. It describes the fictional events around the finding of mysterious artifacts found in the area and the uncovering of their secrets that coincides with the invasion of an alien scouting space ship. The human forces established to study and defend the artifacts become the focus of a world-wide conflict with these aliens who have a connection to the artifacts based on historical events of 400 years in Japan's past.

Intro

During the construction of the Kurobe Dam, an ancient artifact was discovered, and so the United Nations Kurobe Research Institute was established. Intellectuals from all over the world gathered to study the object, and the children of those researchers attend Tateyama International Senior High School, including the institute head's daughter, Yukina Shirahane.
In the summer of 2016, a lone samurai once again awakens.[1]

Yukina Shirahane is visiting her mother's workplace, UN Kurobe Laboratory, and is touring one of the research areas while waiting for her mother. She is shown the "black relic", a large dark cube of unknown origin discovered along with the original artifact, a giant humanoid mechanical robot. When the the lab is attacked from the sky, the research room is hit by an explosion which knocks most of the workers and Yukina to the ground. In her disorientation, she places her hand on the large cube which causes it to activate and open while an alien robotic invader appears in the room. To the shock of Yukina, out of the cube emerges a naked Kennosuke Tokisada Ouma armed with a strange katana. Though naked, he fights off and disables the alien robot. And thus, Yukina's adventure in Earth's fight against a technologically superior alien force begins.
