The story takes place into an imaginary version of Japan of the Muromachi period, and revolves around Ashitaka, the last Emishi prince, who, after an attack by a demonized boar god, finds himself infected with an unknown disease. In his effort to find out the reasons for the boar's demonization and to search for a cure for his ailment, he leaves his village on his red elk, Yakul, beginning his odyssey into a number of unknown territories. As he roams the land, he witnesses the war that takes place all over first-hand, and the consequences that people's efforts to sustain their military excellence take on nature, and particularly forests. In his trips, he comes across Jigo, a rather shady man who poses as a monk, Lady Eboshi, the head of Irontown and a woman who seems to carry good and evil in equal proportions inside her, and San, a girl who has been raised by the wolf-god and acts as an animal as much as a human. As Lady Eboshi has to face a local daimyo, she is also met with the rage of the forest inhabitants, including San, who are enraged that the constant search for iron has shrunk their grounds. Jigo pushes the conflict for his own agenda, which also includes the Forest Spirit, a rather mysterious entity with extreme supernatural abilities, while Ashitaka desperately tries to hold the peace.
