    • A coming-of-age action fantasy tale about Kyuta, a misfortunate, lonely boy who lives in the human world, and Kumatetsu, a lonesome beast who lives in the imaginary world.
      The relationship, at times stormy, between the beast and his young apprentice gradually grows stronger. Overcoming their solitude, they come to realize how much they need each other.
      Their fortunate encounter will be the beginning of an adventure that goes beyond your imagination...
