At the moment, there is no official information that the creators of the anime are ready to take on the new season. The ratings for season 1 were average: critics praised the humor that overwhelmed the series, but at the same time, in their opinion, the storyline was not well developed.
Genzo Shibata, despite his impressive and powerful appearance, always went to his dream – to live surrounded by animals, informing people about the need to take care of our smaller brothers. Genzo is a fighter, a professional wrestler training day after day. The long-awaited match has arrived. At stake is the title of world champion. The protagonist has been preparing for him for a long time, because this fight will be with his sworn enemy. But in the midst of the battle, something went wrong…
Once in the new world, the princess asks for the help of the strongest guy to cleanse the world from animals and other monsters. Genzo was infinitely outraged – how can living beings be killed? Having escaped from the castle, he immediately finds himself in awkward situations – not only people live in the city of an unknown world, but also beastman. Genzo realizes that he has gone to his paradise, because now he is surrounded by a huge number of animals, which he now and then wants to scratch behind the ear and caress. But this behavior is unacceptable for local residents.
The first beastman with whom the protagonist became friends was Shigure. It was she who proposed Genzo to get a job as a hunter of evil creatures. At the same hour, the guy managed to take part in the capture of the terrifying three-headed animals. In less than a couple of minutes, the wild animals were lying on their backs at the feet of Genzo and made sounds of pleasure.
Genzo is not capable of killing any animal. In the new world, he is ready to tame even the most dangerous creature. After all, the guy only dreams that people live side by side with animals in peace and harmony. Can a wrestler make his dreams come true? Which of the inhabitants of the unknown world will become his friend and ally in this difficult matter?..
