The Eto-shin(Zodiac Gods), are twelve divine messengers who have protected the Land of the Rising Sun since ancient times. "Eto-musume," zodiac girls representing all kinds of animals, revere the Eto-shin and aspire to become one of them.
Every sixty years a tournament is held, and the only way to become one of the twelve Eto-Shin, is to defeat all the current Eto-shin in competition. So great is the power of the Eto-shin that, in the past two-thousand years, no Eto-musume has managed to win the tournament.
It is now time for another tournament and thousands of Eto-shin have gathered from across the land for the opportunity to be immortalized as one of the twelve Zodiac signs. Among all these Eto-shin, there exists a single cat Eto-musume.
Her name is Nya-tan (nya, as in meow). She is believed to be the most capable of becoming an Eto-shin. Unfortunately she is an unlucky girl whose efforts are constantly undermined by evil rodents.
Takeru Amato is only an ordinary high-school boy; but when he meets Nya-tan an extraordinary story begins!
