Prologue:

Sometime in the year 2046...

Explosions shook the air as various high energy projectiles streaked across sky. Kamino scanned the battlefield searching for his target. Through the thick smoke he saw him, flying low in his silver and black IS heading for his fortress. "He's falling back!" Kamino shouted to his comrades. "Cut him off before he gets to his stronghold!" Kamino quickly activated his ignition boost and dove towards his target. He could see Celine and Jack coming in from the left while Monika and the twins rocketed in from the right. If they could catch The Count before he made his escape they could finally put his insane plans to an end. He could avenge his aunt and make his father...their father, proud.

He pushed his Neo-Gurren to the limit as he and his team plunged into an opening that The Count had just flown through. They knew that he would have a surprise waiting for them as they heard his cackling echoing off the walls of the large metal tunnel they were chasing him through.

"I have a lock!" Jack shouted as he prepared to fire, raising his massive sniper rifle, but before he had the chance The Count quickly pulled up into a massive room as the tunnel ended, he quickly turned around and yelled "Well I guess it has all come down to this!" His voice resonating in the large chamber as he addressed the team of IS plots as they exited the tunnel. "It seems I underestimated you all, especially you Kamino. You have proven yourself to be quite the IS pilot." Kamino gritted his teeth, he knew something was coming. The Count always had a backup plan. "I suppose you have all left me no choice, but in reality I was hoping for this all along!" The Count said cackling. "If I can't deal with you and your pesky siblings, I will go back in time and get rid of your parents, thus eliminating of all of you in the process! I wonder if it will be painful when you are wiped out of existence, but I guess you will all find out soon enough!" He shouted as he spun his IS around and blasted off to a mysterious dark portal that had just opened up at the back of the chamber. Kamino and his team rocketed after him only to be intercepted by more of The Count's IS drones. They saw The Count disappear into the dark crackling portal, laughing maniacally as he vanished. "If my scanners are correct, then I think that is indeed some sort of time portal!" Monika shouted, "He must be trying to go back in time! W-we have to stop him!" Kamino sliced through one of the drones in his way, it exploded instantly. "Everyone get to that portal before it closes! Now, before it's too late!" Kamino used his ignition boost one last time, draining the rest of his shield energy, diving for the portal. He could see the portal closing, he looked back to see his siblings close behind him; he looked forward one last time as he shot through the portal. His vision went black, but the last thing he saw before the darkness took him was a white academy, with a tall spiraling tower...
