After unknowingly participating in a kidnapping, college student Yuuya Nomoto finds his friends brutally murdered by Hitomi Uzaki, the high school girl they attempted to abduct. Forced to drive her to an undisclosed location, he finds himself being wagered as the prize for a death match between two Therianthropes, superpowered human-animal hybrids created through advanced gene therapy. As one of these hybrids, Hitomi uses the speed and fearlessness she gained from her ratel genes to viciously dispatch her foe and save Yuuya from certain death.

Waking up hours later hoping the whole event was only a nightmare, Yuuya realizes that he has become embroiled in a secret proxy war between four large Japanese business conglomerates, with the winner taking control of the economy. As her sole albeit unwilling investor, his life is now directly linked to Hitomi's ability to participate in underground bloodsport matches known only as Killing Bites.

The art and animation was really well done. LIDENFILMS has yet to disappoint me when it comes to high quality art and animation.

Whoever has the sharpest claws wins.. not in this case.

Story 5: its another battle royale! Not really special, but I do like the whole animal side of it. Having their animal features and their abilities was pretty cool.

Art 5: Noting special here, a couple of good ecchi scenes though.

Sound 5: Voices were good, tracks were okay and the tracks reminded me of the 90s rock music (the middle cut scene)

Character 4: I didn't like alot of them, you have the typical shy guy that has a hot girl as a partner. If I had to pick a favorite character it would be kido ...

It's about a story animal humans fighting each other in a tournament. There is some progressions between the main guy and the main girl. There might be some unintentional spoilers along the way so please understand the concerns.

The artstyle was somewhat unique so far i've seen in anime so that's something to go for if you are into the art but then again i wouldn't suggest watching this anime just because of the art.
Had some ecchi scenes if you are ...
