Synopses & Reviews
A new dark fantasy from the creator of Devils' Line, Ryo Hanada.
The world is suddenly overrun by monsters called shojo, and anyone who is bit by one is infected with a mysterious virus that turns them into the same being. To defeat the shojo, humans live in aerial cities and formed units called guards.
Nanao Minami, also known as the Blackguard, fights but without regard for his own life.
What is his motivation and why does he want to die so readily?
What does it mean to be alive?
Minami--a young Guard who's rumored to be invincible--thinks about dying every day. In a world overrun by ape-like creatures called shojo, he has battled alone and thrown himself into all kinds of danger. And no matter what horror he's faced, he has betrayed no hints of fear, resentment, or despair.
But when his newly assigned partner Miyaji gets bitten, Minami panics. He swings the Black Sword and severs Miyaji's leg to stop the infection from spreading and turning his partner into a shojo. But now, left with a grave injury, Miyaji is on the verge of dying--and Minami, perhaps for the first time ever, is paralyzed by the thought of death.
Ryo Hanada, the creator of Devils' Line, brings to you an immersive and emotionally charged continuation of her newest series.
