Plot Concept: Gleipnir follows typical high schooler Kagaya Shuichi after he discovers that he can turn into a cartoon dog with a gun. Yes, you read that right.  Kagaya, after finding that one of his classmates is trapped in a fire, discovers that he can turn into a dog with a giant gun. He saves the girl, and the two share the knowledge of Kagaya’s secret.

But Kurea Aoki has other motives. She’s on the hunt for her family’s killer—her sister. Just how far will she go for retribution? And at what cost to Kagaya?
