“"Japari Park", an all-inclusive, giant zoo built somewhere in this world. There, a strange phenomenon where animals took on the shape of humans had occurred......
These animals, who'd come to be known as "Friends", were living peacefully in the Park. One day, the Friends Serval and Caracal met a human child within the forest. Something appeared to be troubling the hungry human child, so they embarked on a journey with Serval and company. During their journey, they encounter Friends overflowing with personality, as well as the Park's secrets and delicious food! And... find themselves in an earth-shaking dilemma!?
