A fantasy world calls for a fantasy adventure, and Yuuri has decided that he wants to see a dragon. He, Wolfram, Conrad, and Günter set out to the preserve (dragons are an endangered species after all) to find one. Yuuri makes friends quickly, just in time for some trespassing humans to attack looking to kill and sell the dragons. Too bad for Yuuri, the group includes a young hero (Alford) with a holy sword who decides to use the confusion to try and kill the "evil Maou".
