Summary Hoshi no SamidareLucifer and the Biscuit Hammer Anime
A few days later, a college student Yuuhi Amamiya is contacted by Sir Noi Crezant. Crezant immediately tells an epic tale: the powerful wizard Animus will destroy Earth by using his “biscuit Hammer,” an enormous device that hovers over the Earth’s orbit. Earth’s only hope is the Princess, and her Beast Knights, whose mission is to defend the Princess and take on Animus.
Yuuhi is selected as his Lizard Beast Knight and, regardless of his doubts, is forced to fight against a golem crafted by the magic caster.
His life is saved through his neighbor, princess Asahina Samidare, who swears that he will be loyal to her. But, she is not planning on keeping the Planet in any way. She informs Yuuhi about her motives for herself: to stop Animus from destructing Earth to wipe out the Earth with her means.
The two continue to fight back against the golems of Animus while they watch the rest of the Beast Knights slowly gather and discover how to harness their power. But, it is up to Yuuhi to decide if he will follow the plan of Asahina, who he is becoming closer to, or helps save his fellow creatures on Earth. He will have to be honest with himself and decide where his loyalty lies in this process.
