Plot/Story
In order to eliminate demons, Teiou came to the mortal world. He was curious about the pretty demon, named Keika, whom he caught. Thus, Teiou decided to bring him back instead of killing him. However, people started to voice out their displeasure towards Keika. Side-story of Jadou, concentrates on Teiou x Keika.

Some really angst moments where situations want them to part each other because they belonged to different races. This side-story brings you closer to Teiou and Keika, one of the pairings in Jadou(main story), featuring how they met each other, braved through difficulties and ended up together.

Characters
Teiou seems just as optimistic as he is towards their love but his mind actually ponders alot just like Keika, nevertheless. Thus, angst added. However, funny characters, such as Teiou's friend who changes his hairstyle everytime (making Teiou unable to recognize him), appear to lighten up the story only alittle, not much though. Female characters popped up in the middle and I love them no less. Overall, all the characters are just as great as you can imagine.I love Teiou and Keika all the way.

But someone in the story disturbs me. That someone I'm referring is the random guy Keika was having sex with before he met Teiou. He did that in order to find more info on his friend, Riri. Really, although there're only 3 pages with him only, I just couldn't stand him. T.T

Drawing Style
Her drawings get even better as she goes, such as the characters' expressions really bring the pain they are going through, to you. The female characters are just as pretty as the guys. It's just all great as all of her other works.

Enjoyment
I adore/love fantasy and actions too much. Personally, I feel one should sit at somewhere quiet and read this manga, or even when you don't feel like sleeping and you want to read a manga to pass time. Trust me, you can't stop when you've started it. =D

Overall
I love Mamiya-sensei's works and this is only a volume so it won't cost you much. You like angst and you will like this. So why are you hesitating for? ^__-
