In the age of the sword, heroes, and mythology, giant beasts are hunted by humans for profit. Jiro, who makes his living hunting beasts, encounters Kuumi, who is being chased by someone, and at that moment, decides to save her. As rumors spread about humanity and a mysterious experiment, they seek to discover the world's secrets.
