Synopsis of Ars no Kyojuu
The story takes place in a time of swords, heroes and myths. Giant beasts created the land, but then humans stole it. This angered the beasts, which began to eat the humans. To defend themselves, humans invoked the gods. The Kyojuu beasts began to spread across the world, causing great damage, but the humans fought back by hunting down the Kyojuu. Mankind also prospered by using the stuffed parts of beasts. Jiiro is “a man who has escaped death”, and he hunts Kyojuu for a living. He meets “Kuumi Twenty-Two”, who is being chased by someone. Jiro and his friends then begin to discover the secrets of this world.
