When Ren’s mother dies he is sent to live with distant relatives, but the upset and angry young boy runs away. When bear Kumatetsu, the rebellious heir to the throne of the beast world, happens across Ren on one of his jaunts up to the human world he decides to adopt him. Once back in the beast world, notoriously lazy Kumatetsu must prove himself by training Ren as his apprentice to be worthy of inheriting the kingdom. The similarly stubborn boy and bear butt heads during training, but form a strong bond regardless. However, when Ren nears adulthood he starts to become curious about life back in the human world that he left behind.
