To the Abandoned Sacred Beasts sets in the U.S. after the Civil War. To win the war against the South, the North brought into existence the Sacred Beasts, monstrous super-soldiers raised from the dark powers called Incarnate. After the war is over and peace has been restored, the Sacred Beasts have to find a way to fit in the normal society, or face death at the hands of a Beast Hunter.
Hank, an old captain of the Sacred Beasts must uphold his vow and kill his former comrades. During the journey, he meets Nancy Sharl Bancroft, the daughter of one of those monstrous soldiers, who is determined to hunt down the Beast Hunter. After failing to kill Hank in one of the attempts, she ends up traveling with him and comes to understand his reasons for upholding that vow.
The original manga series is written and illustrated by Maybe in Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine since June 2014. There are a total of nine volumes as of February 2019.
