Description
Old Gods are invading Earth, possessing humans and baring naked their most wicked emotions. The most powerful 'disciples' of these evil demons are called 'mages'. The story concentrates on two such people: Yoguruma Mugen (disciple of Yogusutoosu) and Narukami Chikage (bound to Nyarlathotep). Their strained relationship and addition of another, seemingly human girl thrusts us into the world where no black or white exist. In this strange and brutal world fight to stay human even in the worst circumstances continues.

The author seems to use lore from the Lovecraftian mythos.

About the title, ダイン (roomaji: dain) is Japanese for dyne, which has the symbol or standard abbreviation of dyn. It is a unit of force that was used in physics starting in the mid-1800s but was largely supplanted by later systems.

Confusing Without Prior Knowledge

Before you go into this series, it is important to note that this is a spin-off of the Demonbane visual novel series. It does not try to explain much of the world, and the manga fully expects you to have prior knowledge of the gods and motives behind the characters from reading Deus Machina Demonbane.

Starts out good, but quickly devolves into confusion

Speaking as someone who has actually read Lovecraft's Cthulu mythos, I was still confused when the manga started delving into all the Lovecraftian references.

But let's start with the pros. The art is pretty terrific, and the mangaka has a really great sense of movement and action. It's a fairly easy and nice read because of that, and I appreciate it. I also really like the character designs, especially for the main female lead. They're simple but unique.

What this manga really fails at, however, is its worldbuilding and exposition. I have no idea who most of these characters are, nor is there any understandable explanation of the world they inhabit. Especially once it hits the midway point, the series begins introducing a slew of enemies and frenemies and allies that I ultimately have no idea who any of them are. Even with the main characters, character development is sparse, and it feels like they change based on what the plot requires of them, rather than through any organic way. (The chemistry between Azana and Narukami is nonexistent; the one between Azana and Yogoruma is slightly better but still stilted.)

Overall, this really isn't a series I can recommend to, well, anyone. The art is nice, and the opening chapters seem to promise something unique and exciting, but it fails to deliver, and it fails badly.

(And, yeah, this series is really, painfully chuuni.)

Whats there to say?

Not much other than the medium (manga) is a terrible choice. With only 3 volumes, the story doesn't amount to anything other than a crude primer to the Lovecraft universe.
