Great beasts created the land, but man stole it. Enraged, the beasts began to eat humans, who called on the gods to fight the beasts. In the age of swords, heroes, and myths, giant beasts are hunted by humans for profit. Jiro, who makes a living hunting animals, meets Kuumi, who is being chased by someone, and at that moment he decides to save her. As rumors spread about humanity and a mysterious experiment, together they seek to uncover the world’s secrets.

Ashito Ōyari designed the original characters, and Hiroshi Shimizu (Hinata no Aoshigure background art) and Masato Kato (Namu Amida Butsu! -Rendai Utena-, Peach Boy Riverside) are adapting those designs for animation.
