Synopsis for Hoshi no Samidare

One day, college student Yuuhi Amamiya is approached by the talking lizard Sir Noi Crezant. Crezant immediately begins a fantastic story: the powerful sorcerer Animus intends to destroy the Earth with his "Cookie Hammer", a huge device floating above Earth's orbit. The only hope on earth rests with the princess and her beast knights, whose task it is to protect the princess and defeat Animus.

Elected a Lizard Beast Knight, Yuuhi, despite his misgivings, is quickly forced to fend off a mage-created golem. He is rescued 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 his true motivations: stopping the Animus from destroying Earth, and then destroying the planet by his own hand. The pair continue to battle attacks from Animus' golems while the remaining beast knights slowly gather and learn to use their powers. But Yuuhi must decide for himself whether to follow the plans of Asahina, whom he approaches, or save Earth. In doing so, he must also face his true self and find out where his true loyalties lie.
