A devil sends two cities; Kujukuri City in Chiba Prefecture and Dallas in the U.S., to ten thousand years ahead in the future, makes them fight each other, and enjoys watching over the fight. The devil's name is Bazusu. So Tanbara Gai, a member of Time Patrol, fights this devil to stop the atrocity. This is also a special animated program produced for "24-hour Television." This animated TV program is unusual because it is even closer to Tezuka Osamu's original idea than the original Manga is.
