A boy named Tetsu watches lazily as a mysterious white creature appears atop a tall building. He names another one of the creatures “Cenco” and lives his life as a high school student secretly with it, using its ability to change its shape at will to remain hidden. However, one day a girl who goes to his school learns his secret and a mysterious boy named Shuu appears and attacks Cenco, leading to an eruption of unexpected events…
It seems as though the disturbance is over when another girl named Kaname shows up looking for Shuu. Her appearance signals the beginning of a new turn of events for Tetsu, Yuki, and Cenco.
Tetsu, a high school student who prefers to keep to himself, watches lazily as a mysterious white creature appears out of nowhere on the top of a skyscraper. He’s not alarmed because he has Cenco, his own creature who acts both as his shapeshifting weapon but also as a trusted companion. Cenco’s existence has been kept secret from civilians though until a classmate of his, Yuki, accidentally learns his secret. The two, and Cenco, are now bound together and soon on a mission together when a mysterious boy named Shuu appears and attacks Cenco. More unexpected events soon erupt totally transforming Tetsu, Yuki and Cenco’s world forever.
Based on the 2009 short film, Cencoroll Connect is a fast-paced, wild ride of adventure featuring the coolest creatures who feel as if they’ll bust out of the screen at any moment.
