A magical sword that was reincarnated as a sentient weapon and had memories of a previous existence but not his name frees a young beastgirl from a life of servitude. Fran, the cat-eared girl who takes control of him, merely wants to get stronger; the sword, on the other hand, is curious as to why he is in this place.
