Maitetsu-Pure Station tells the story of Sotetsu, a young man who lost his family in a rail accident and was adopted by a family of brewery owners, who is trying to stop an airplane factory from being built in his hometown of Ohitoyo. Sotetsu must convince those in town who are in favor of the factory that the pollution it would bring to the river near the town would be too high a price to pay for financial gain. This is complicated by the fact that Ohitoyo is going through a bit of a budgetary issue and really needs the money the factory deal would bring. As Sotetsu attempts to figure out how to save his hometown he accidentally wakes up the android-like RailLord Hachiroku who agrees to help him on his quest.
