When Nanoka travels back in time to a supernatural early 20th century, she gets recruited by aloof exorcist Mao. What is the thread of fate that connects them? Together, they seek answers...and kick some demon butt along the way!
Nanoka passes through a portal into the Taisho era, where exorcist Mao reluctantly rescues her from the jaws of a grotesque yokai. When Nanoka gets back to the present, she discovers she has some new, incredible abilities. She returns to the past looking for answers, only to get caught up in Mao’s investigation of a series of gruesome murders. As her questions about herself multiply, Nanoka learns that Mao is cursed by a cat demon named Byoki—and so is his sword. If anyone but Mao attempts to wield it, they are doomed. But when Mao’s life is in jeopardy, Nanoka picks up his blade and swings...!
Reading this manga reminds me a lot of Inuyasha (obviously being the same author) so I recommend it to anyone who loved this manga/anime. As for the manga Inuyasha, a girl is transported back in time, she meets Mao and she discovers that her life is closely linked to the one of the boy. Mao is an Onmyoji, a specialist in the magical arts and divination. Together they must understand what binds them together and be able to defeat the common enemy.
