The story begins when high school student Kazuki Muto (?????, Mut? Kazuki?) is killed one night saving a mysterious girl from a monster, only to wake up in his school dorm, believing it to be a dream. However, he soon finds out that dream wasn’t a dream at all when a giant serpentine monster attacks him and his sister. Tokiko Tsumura (?????, Tsumura Tokiko?), the girl he saved, explains that the monster is a homunculus. Kazuki had been attacked and killed by it when rescuing Tokiko, however she, feeling responsible for him, revived him by placing a Kakugane medal in his chest, serving as a replacement heart, or “New Life”.
The Kakugane, as Tokiko explains, is an alchemical device that, when activated, takes a certain form based on the Kakugane user, forming a unique Buso Renkin. The Buso Renkin is the only thing that can destroy a homunculus monster. Using this, Kazuki creates his own Buso renkin, taking the form of a giant lance, later named ‘Sunlight Heart’. Along with Tokiko and her own Buso renkin (the Valkyrie Skirt, an execution scythe), Kazuki joins the fight against the homunculi and their master.
