Arion begins with his journey to discover a world of poverty and horror where ordinary people are barely surviving through the war. He falls in love with a blind slave girl who is then captured and imprisoned on top of Olympus by Apollo, who dreams to rule the Titans. Now, Arion must lead an army of ordinary people to fight against the three war lords (Zeus, Poseidon and Pluto) with help from a thief, a giant, a wizard, a mysterious lion-masked man and a flying dragon.

Did You Know?
The overall plot and most of the character names are based on Greek myths, although as with 'Aa! Megamisama!' (1993), some of the latter can be difficult to correctly identify because of the multiple transliterations through Japanese into English. In the original myths, Poseidon fathered two children from Demeter: a horse named Arion and a nymph named Despoena (Lesfeena). While there are at least two mythological figures named Lycaon - one was the first king of Arcadia; the other was a Trojan prince - the "Lykaon" character here may instead be based on Deucalion, an analogue of the Biblical Noah, who survived a divine flood that wiped out the rest of humanity.
