Genzo Shibata is a famous pro wrestler, better known in the world of wrestling as Animal Mask.
The night of the match for the title of World Champion, he's suddenly teleported into a fantasy world by a princess, who asks him to act as a beasts killer and free the kingdom from every evil beast infesting its forests. However, Genzo is also a true animals' lover, and he immediately refuses the order, knocking out the princess with a German suplex and leaving the castle.
Alone in a new world, Genzo sides very soon with the wolf-girl Shigure, joining alongside her to the local guild and starting a new career as a beasts hunter. However, instead of killing them, his goal is to befriend and capture as many monsters as possible, in order to realise his greatest dream: become the owner of a pet shop.
