The second season of Invasion has begun with a bang, leaving viewers on the edge of their seats. In this episode, Benya Mabote, the president of the World Defense Coalition (WDC), takes the spotlight in a desperate plea for unity as Earth faces an unprecedented threat.

The world is in trouble. It’s been four months since a mysterious alien ship arrived, rendering many parts of the world uninhabitable.

To make matters worse, about 30% of Earth’s air is now filled with alien spores. This is a sign that the aliens are changing our atmosphere to make it unsuitable for humans.

President Benya Mabote makes a heartfelt appeal for nations to come together under the WDC to combat this threat. Sadly, his call for unity falls on deaf ears, showing how people are divided even when facing a common enemy.

Now, meet “The Movement,” a grassroots group determined to fight the aliens. But they face fierce opposition from the military, leading to regular clashes.

Our first glimpse of the alien attack comes from Osaka, Japan. Alien invaders, especially spider-like creatures, cause chaos with their mobility and ruthless nature.

Nikhil Kapur, the leader of Dharmax, a research organization, is determined to decipher the aliens’ intentions. He believes the ship is far from “dead.”

Inside the massive alien vessel, Mitsuki faces a daunting challenge. The ship, described as being “as big as Canada,” is powered by a mysterious energy source hidden behind an impenetrable electromagnetic field. Previous attempts to breach it have resulted in severe neurological damage.
