Synopsis of Hikari no Ou
The story takes place in a world after the last human war. A vast forest infested with burning creatures and other fallen animals covers the world and pockets of humanity live in small protected communities. Due to a special weapon used during the last war, people spontaneously went up in flames even when approaching a small source of fire. Thus the only safe source of energy for humans is in the body of the burning animals, and the duty to hunt them rests with the hunters who defy the depths of the great forest.
The story begins with Touko, a young girl in a paper town who is attacked by a burning animal and protected by a hunter. Elsewhere, a young man born in the capital, Kouishi, protects his younger sister after her mother dies.
