The foolish living things, the humans, who carry darkness in their hearts, lost the light from their eyes.

Deep inside the darkness, they lose sight of the way. Crushed in their despair, the humans one day meet creatures called the hotaru who each carry a faint, warm light. The hotaru provided the humans with the light, and started to live alongside them. But in this ugly and blood-stained world, the hotaru's number started to decrease day by day. Yet, the humans wanted the light and started to hunt the hotaru. For money they would throw away the life of a hotaru.

Nemu, a hotaru who has lost her light, makes a contract with an abandoned baby, Haibane. Haibane seeks to find a way to gain back Nemu's light.

6 into the story and still pretty good and thrilling. The premises are very simple yet the story keeps you entertained, with jokes or fights, or NemuxHaibane drama smile. And even though it's still early to judge, if this kind of story keeps up for another 3-4 volumes I'll definitely keep it as a fav smile
The art is great too. smile
And it's A female lead who's abilities dimmed, but still hunted like others of her kind. Who picked up a child which eventually grew into a fine young, but blind, swordsman and protector(?lover?),

About the comment before mine. People, just give it a try. It's not similar to Shi ga Futari o Wokatsu Made. She even makes the contrat with him when he's a baby (to protect him, just like the description says) and raises him. She doesn't make a contract because of his special abilities and...well, I'm not gonna talk any more than this or I will be spoiling it for you *sigh*
What's more, this's based on a drama CD. And the fantasy things take a major importance on the plot.

I wonder if it's just a rip-off riding on a popularity of the Shi ga Futari o Wakatsu Made manga.
Just in this one instead of a Sci-Fi element, we have a fantasy..

Female lead being hunted down by human organisations because of her special abilities
makes a contract with a blind swordsman to protect my I wonder how it'll turn out.

Cannot rate it at this moment.
