HIDIVE describes the series:
Great beasts created the earth, but humans stole it. Angered, the beasts began to eat the humans, who in turn called on the gods to fight the beasts. In the age of swords, heroes and mythology, giant beasts are hunted by humans for profit. Jiro, who makes a living hunting beasts, meets Kuumi, who is being chased by someone, and at that moment decides to save her. As rumors spread about humanity and a mysterious experiment, they seek together to uncover the secrets of the world.
Akira Ogurō (Namu Amida Butsu!) directs the anime to Asahi Production. Ashito Oyari designed the original characters, and Hiroshi Shimizu (Hinata no Aoshigure wallpaper) and Masato cat (Namu Amida Butsu!, Peach Boy by the River) adapt these designs for animation. Norimitsu Kaiho (Astra lost in space, School Live!, Akudama Drive) oversees and writes scripts for the series. Shuji Katayama (Suzerain, Saga of Tanya the Evil) and Akinari Suzuki (Smile on the track, Redo Healer) compose the music.
