100 years after Victor Frankenstein reanimated a dead body, a medical student named John Watson tries to replicate his experiments, but fails to give the undead a soul. By order of Her Majesty, he sets out to seek the original notes written by Frankenstein himself, which contain the secret to immortality. The fast-paced adventure-animation is adapted from a novel of late writer Project Itoh.
