The 2720s: The Earth is in decay and so are many of its colonies. A young and terrible kid is growing up by himself in a single-room "kindergarten cell" surrounded by the high-tech of the new millennium. For one of his birthdays, he receives an android nurse: beautiful woman-transformer, programmed to teach and protect the kid. Eventually the kid grows, gets accepted in the Space Academy and discovers enemies and friends as he races through the known Universe in the search for the Space Firebird, a semi-mythical creature of energy. In an effort to know the race of such a tenacious explorer, the creature "enters" the android and falls in love with its master and friend. Written by

The film's Japanese title "Ai no kosumozon" sounds a little strange as it incorporates the word "kosumozon", assumed by most to be a portmanteau of the English words "kosumo" ("cosmo") and "zon" ("zone"). However, according to Osamu Tezuka
the "zon" is referring to "zoon", the Greek word for "life" (as used in the term "zoology"). Thus, "kosumozon" is meant to mean "space lifeform", which is a more sensible title as it refers to the Phoenix. See more
