One evening, he comes home to find that he has left a window in his room open. A wild young man who has just escaped government custody leaps out from beneath his bed and threatens to kill him. Yuuji's roommate, another in the long line of bullies Yuuji apologetically endures, bursts in...and is promptly decapitated by a fifteen-foot-tall T-rex. It turns out that Minato is a 17-year-old dinosauroid, part of a species that has long lived apart but parallel with humans, and he is capable of transforming into a reptilian killing machine under stress. ''Something'' has attracted him to Yuuji's room: Yuuji "smells like kin" and Minato is immediately overcome by an overwhelming desire to mate. From there, the story becomes the tale of various {{Ancient Conspirac|y}ies, [[CorruptCorporateExecutive corrupt researchers and executives]], and Yuuji and Minato's evolving relationship.

* ArtificialLimbs: [[spoiler: Minato]] gets one after losing an arm, and the technology comes up later when helping an injured dinosauroid boy.



* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Seems to be the case with dinosauroids (both male and female), at least where gender politics is concerned.



** Zombie Marines, anyone? Especially since they're intelligent, and slowly dying?
** The female dinosauroid infant that Maya holds briefly. One cyclops-eye, no limbs, and protrusions that look suspiciously like tentacles. It's implied the girl died shortly after birth because of her deformities.



* DoubleStandardRapeMaleOnMale: {{Averted}}.

to:

* DoubleStandardRapeMaleOnMale: {{Averted}}. Even when former rapists are EasilyForgiven due to being powerful allies, it's made clear that Minato ''never'' forgives them, and implied that Yuiji's "forgiveness" (if he gives it) is a sign/symptom of his despair.



* HatePlague: A dinosauroid-only disease couples itself with this in the later stages, and the rampaging dinosauroids infected with it leads to hostility from humans and further tensions between the two species. Because the disease is ultimately lethal, both dinosauroids and humans see themselves as the victims in the resulting political conflict.



* LoveRedeems: [[spoiler: [[AvertedTrope No, it doesn't,]]]] Shirakawa.
** Yuiji accidentally pulls this off repeatedly, turning several enemies into allies when they fall in love with him.



* [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Ninja Pirate Zombie Robots]]: Police officers revived to hunt rogue dinosauroids. A (technically) zombie SWAT team. Yes. Even here, however, the series never breaks from its serious, thoughtful tone.

to:

* MustNotDieAVirgin: One dinosauroid in a Chinese village asks Yuiji to sleep with his dying brother so he won't die "without knowing a woman's touch." Yuiji instead uses his medical knowledge to help save the brother's life, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny and is promptly propositioned by the first guy.]]

* YourNormalIsOurTaboo: Minato shows a few signs of this. [[GenderRarityValue Due to growing up in a culture where women are expected to have as many kids as possible,]] he didn't seem to understand why Yuiji would be upset about being pushed into sex immediately after meeting him.

[[GenderRarityValue Due to growing up in a culture where women are expected to have as many kids as possible,]] he didn't seem to understand why Yuiji would be upset about being pushed into sex immediately after meeting him. Fortunately, he has enough intuition not to push and to wait until Yuiji consents.

* AllLovingHero: Deconstructed with Yuiji. Although he wins over people threatening to eat him through kindness, the emotional cost of being so forgiving puts him working alongside his own rapists. Although he gains more allies this way, there's still danger in trusting people who previously saw him as breeding stock, [[spoiler: which backfires when Shirakawa rapes him.]] Furthermore, Yuiji later reveals that he's so forgiving [[DespairEventHorizon because he's been through so much awful shit that he no longer has it in him to hate everyone who wronged him.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BadassBookworm: Yuiji shows in-depth knowledge of medicine, archeology, politics, has a little education in Chinese, and is very badass. Often, his major contributions to the plot are directly because of his education.

Added DiffLines:

* TheMedic: Yuiji. It comes in handy less often, due to Minato's HealingFactor, but he ''does'' sometimes win people over by taking care of their sick and injured. The most important time his medical knowledge comes into play is when he invents an antivirus for a dinosauroid plague [[spoiler: using his daughters antibodies]], because this action kicks off the plot of ''Genshi Sairai''.
* TookALevelInBadass: Yuiji, after getting pregnant, and Linea, after uncovering her DieOrFly powers.
