Gate Keepers (ゲートキーパーズ, Gēto Kīpāzu?) started as a role-playing game for the PlayStation. The game was then adapted into an anime series, and first aired on April 3, 2000. The anime was licensed by Geneon Entertainment USA.


The story is set in 1969, a period of time in which Japan is experiencing intense economic and social development after the end of World War II in 1945. Unbeknownst to humans, interdimensional aliens have emerged with plans to take over the world by sending numerous agents to wreak havoc in cities, turning people into robotic minions. They are referred to as "Invaders".

In an attempt to confront the Invaders and defend the planet; an elite but highly secret organization of peace-keepers called the Alien Exterminating Global Intercept System (or A.E.G.I.S.), was set up with funding from the government. They rely on the ability of "Gate Keepers", who have the power to open dimensional "Gates" of a paranormal energy that give them their superpowers. These superpowers are the only weapons that have any effect on Invaders.

The headquarters of the Far East branch of A.E.G.I.S. lies beneath Tategami High School, a façade created by the organization to mask the active recruitment of new Gate Keepers. Since many of the candidates were High School students, the location allowed the agents to be enrolled in school and be available for a mission at a moment's notice.
