The battle fantasy manga revolves around a criminal’s daughter, Shumari, and the young man who became her bodyguard, Tōgo. When Shumari is attacked by human-eating ghouls, Tōgo, a super-powered “adept,” appears.
The same issue of Monthly Shonen Gangan also debuted the series Beelzebub-jō no Okinimesu Mama. (As Miss Beelzebublikes it.) by matoba (Majo no Shinzō). Meanwhile, Yen Hioka‘sBlack Detective (Kuro no Tantei) and Shiwo Komeyama‘s Bloody Cross manga ended.
