When he discovers a fantastic world of beasts, a young street kid named Kyuta, who has no parents, is taken in by Kumatetsu, a gruff warrior beast who’s been searching for an apprentice.

Kyuta and Kumatetsu begin training together and slowly form a bond, but when the human and beast worlds are thrown into chaos, the strong bond between this unlikely pair is put to the test and the only way they can survive is by working together to combine their strength and courage.
