The central character of the manga is a college-going student named Yuuhi Amamiya. When a talking lizard tells him that he is the chosen one, the Beast Knight, he is not interested. As a Beast Knight, he is destined to assist the Princess to defeat a mage who wants to destroy the world. His weapon is a piece of equipment called the Biscuit Hammer. Yuuhi couldn’t care less until he meets the Princess he is destined to help, Samidare Asahina. While she does seek to defeat the mage, her goals are rather unexpected. She wants to stop the mage from destroying the world as she seeks to destroy it instead. Interested in the sudden turn of events, Yuuhi takes on the Biscuit Hammer and decides to help the Princess.
