The Justirisers is the story of three youngsters with very different goals in life, uniting for a common cause - to fight evil. Ancient years ago, a dark atmosphere attracts the extraterrestrial civilization in the extragalactic, Hadesu. The sole defender of Hadesu, Norun Riser, wins the war but loses his life and all that remains of him is a mysterious crystal. In the Modern world, the light from the crystal shines on three young adults - Joe (Riser Glen), Ryan (Riser Gant) and Kageri (Riser Kageri). The numinous light empowers them to call the ultimate defender, Justirisers!
