The Star Ocean: The Second Story manga is a seven-volume series written and illustrated by Mayumi Azuma, and published by Enix. It was serialized in Monthly Shōnen Gangan, premiering in June 1999 and running until December 2001 when it ended without reaching the conclusion of the story.

Studio Deen adapted the series into a twenty-six episode anime, Star Ocean EX. To complete the story left unfinished by both the manga and anime, five drama CDs (Star Ocean EX Navigation) were released in Japan, using the same voice actors from the anime.


Ronyx J. Kenny and his son, Claude C. Kenny are on a mission to investigate a newly discovered planet. While investigating a strange machine with a mysterious energy field, Claude is teleported to the planet of Expel. He wakes up in a forest, where he meets Rena Lanford, who is being attacked by a monster. After defeating the monster with his Phase Gun, Rena takes him back to Arlia where he is declared to be the legendary "Hero of Light" who will save Expel, in peril since the landing of the Sorcery Globe...
