Episode 1: Tinsel City

Night falls in MegaTokyo, Japan. 2032 AD, a show begins in a dark corner of the city. A Boomer is out on the rampage, the AD Police are dispatched. Boomers are an artificial life form, created by the Genom Corporation. Genom has a powerful presence within the city, it controls events through political and financial channels. Meanwhile the AD Police helicopter has come into Boomer range, the Boomer rips off the helicopter's minigun and connects it to its broken right shoulder, and continues the rampage. However then from out of the shadows figures appear. Four different coloured powered armour suits appear, they are elegant and the fighters inside echo this taking down the Boomer with little hassle. AD Police Officer Leon McNichol, who has rushed to the scene, can only watch in amazement. These women, attired in hardsuits surpassing military battlesuits, are vigilantes who smash lawlessness for money. Having defeated the Boomer, they vanish into the night. That evening, Leon stops for a burger. Leaving the restaurant is Priss, lead singer of "Priss and the Replicants", whose concert he had been called away from to deal with the Boomer. He introduces himself, but is dismayed when Priss informs him that she hates the police - especially AD Police. She tells him to try doing something to help the citizens for a change, instead of running around chasing girls.

An advertisement in the next day's newspaper leads to a job offer for the Knight Sabers. Sylia calls a meeting, and soon Linna, Nene, and Priss arrive. After discussion, Sylia and Nene go to meet with the prospective client, USSD (the Space Defense Force), while in their powered armour. Sylia agrees to take the job, which is to find a computer technician, F.G. Frederick, and his little sister, Cynthia, who have been abducted by a group of Boomers. The Knight Sabers begin to comb the city, but Priss gets too close to the kidnappers and is captured herself. She pretends to be unconscious, and makes a mental note of where she is being taken. When she has all the information she makes her escape, however she is chased. Meanwhile, Sylia, Linna, Nene, and Mackie meet in Sylia's apartment, where they wait impatiently for Priss to arrive. As Mackie scans police radio frequencies, they hear a patrol bulletin - a Boomer has been spotted chasing someone on a racing bike in the direction of Aqua City! Although there is a very good possibility that this has nothing to do with the missing Priss, Sylia decides not to take a chance. The three Knight Sabers suit-up and head for Aqua City.

At Aqua City, Priss finds Cynthia alone, drawing maps on a wall. Priss tells Cynthia that they should leave, as Cynthia's parents are probably worried about her.

But when Cynthia tells her that she has no parents, Priss begins to wonder... Who is she anyway? As they start to leave, the Boomers arrive. Priss is questioned as to why she's there, but refuses to answer. She is being alternately thrown around the room and threatened when Frederick arrives.

Priss realizes that Frederick is also a Boomer, and asks him what he wants Cynthia for. He answers that it's obvious Priss doesn't know much about Cynthia. The Boomers prepare to kill Priss, but the Knight Sabers arrival changes things.

They deal with all the Boomers, except Frederick, with little trouble while Priss and Cynthia, with a little help from the just arrived Leon, escape the area. But Frederick reveals himself to be something other than a normal Boomer - he begins to grow and extend tendrils, taking over the entire Aqua City platform. Priss, having been separated from Cynthia during their escape, crosses the bridge out of the city and arrives at the Knight Sabers's equipment truck, where Mackie is waiting.

Despite her injuries, she suits-up and heads back to the battle, vowing to rescue Cynthia. Sylia, Linna, and Nene are having a tough time of it. They are outmatched by the now enormous Frederick, and are unable to mount an effective attack.

However, when Priss arrives they renew their attack, mounting a diversion while Priss conducts the real attack, actually going inside Frederick to destroy him. Cynthia is seen standing atop the wreckage of Aqua City, while a helicopter from Genom hovers nearby. Mason, in the co-pilot's seat, mutters a few words into a microphone, the helicopter pulls away, and the Knight Sabers realise that Cynthia, too, is a Boomer! Suddenly, one of USSD's satellite weapons fires its particle beam into Aqua City, destroying Cynthia and sending the wreckage to the bottom of the harbor.
