One day, college student Yuuhi Amamiya is accosted by the talking lizard Sir Noi Crezant. Crezant immediately launches into a fantastic story: the mighty wizard Animus intends to destroy the Earth with his “biscuit hammer,” a huge contraption that hovers above Earth’s orbit. Earth’s only hope lies with the princess and her Beast Knights, whose task it is to protect the princess and defeat Animus.
Yuuhi is chosen as the Lizard Beast Knight and, despite his misgivings, is quickly forced to fend off a golem created by the mage. He is saved by his neighbor, Princess Asahina Samidare, and swears allegiance to her. However, the princess has no intention of saving the earth at all. He tells Yuuhi of his true motivations: to stop the Animus from destroying Earth, then to annihilate the planet by his own hand. The pair continue to fight off attacks from Animus’s golems as the remaining Beast Knights slowly gather and learn to use their powers. But Yuuhi will have to decide for himself whether to follow the plans of Asahina, whom he is getting close to, or to save the Earth. In the process, he must also confront his true self, and determine where his loyalties truly lie.
