A monster called 'Gyamon' has been holding game sessions in a different space - that is 'Bakegyamon'.
Human children, who have been chosen and invited as 'players', fight battles using charms in which monsters are sealed, and compete with each other to get to the goal.
The first player to reach the goal, i.e. the final destination, has one wish granted.
Why does the monster 'Gyamon' invite human children to game sessions and have them compete? What is the hidden identity of 'Gyamon'? With a very strange view of the world, over 100 monster characters make a spectacular showing to fill your screen.
