The plot has Amamiya Yuuhi, a college student, waking up one morning to find a talking lizard informing him that the world is in grave danger. A powerful Mage is plotting to destroy it with the “Biscuit Hammer” — a gigantic mallet floating in space, ready to deal out a final, apocalyptic smash. To stop this, he must join forces with a ragtag group of Beast Knights and protect their Princess, who stands in the way of the Mage’s plot.
Unfortunately for the lizard, Yuuhi is a bit of a misanthrope and wants no part in saving the world. But he is interested in saving the Princess, especially when she announces that she only wants to save the world so she can destroy it herself!
