One night, Don and Katsu were just finished eating food and felt full. Suddenly they heard the weird music and it's coming from the bathroom. Upon arrives outside the bathroom, they heard someone's calling for help. But when they open the door, what they see is the bright light and they were sent to somewhere.

Don, after arrived to the unfamiliar place, noticed that he is wearing some sort of weird outfit. He also noticed that Katsu isn't here, so he call for Katsu, to no avail. He look around, and what he see is buildings that were burnt to the ground.

Wandering around the place, Don found Maou's pendant, just then he is attacked by the very angry Ralco, the little dragon. After the incident, Ralco appologize to Don for mistaking him as one of the Maou's henchmen. The two become friends, and Ralco reveal that he's been searching for the orbs that are the fragments of Princess Soprano's voice. Just then, the portal appeared and Maou reveal himself to the two.

Maou reveal that if Ralco cannot collect all seven orbs before the next full moon, Princess Soprano will be disappear forever. The portal disappear, but not before Princess Soprano managed to tell Ralco telepathically that the pendant that Don have is the gift to Ralco and use it to find the remaining orb to save her.

Don, together with Ralco, started the epic journey to save Princess Soprano and defeat Maou once and for all...
