From Broccoli:

Spirits known as kamui are thrown into chaos when the sacred spirit Okikurumi is taken from Atsuma's village, and the imbalance threatens to destroy Earth. Infused with the spirit of an ancient sword, Atsuma must leave his village to reclaim Okikurumi.

He encounters NOA, an organization of youths who wield the power of the kamui, and who may hold the key to Okikurumi. Atsuma is recruited into NOA by Sumire, a young woman with an empty soul who yearns for a miracle. Atsuma and his new companions must work together to find Okikurumi before the world is destroyed.

Great setting and beginning, but the series falls off towards the latter half of the series. It's definitely worth the time despite the ending since ... nice bishie-lead action fantasy ... shounen-ai ... come on ... <3_<3

This story is unique in its own way. It started off in a confusing way and environment but you'll get the hang of it! And I don't know if I'm the only one who felt it but almost during every battle towards the end of the story I always thought that, "this is it! This is it!" but no.... Haha! I'm weird I know! Next, the characters are so fun to read about! I know that some readers might turn this manga down the moment you see the genre tag 'shounen-ai' but rest assured, the hints are barely visible! To me, there aren't enough hints to even consider it shounen-ai but more like bromance instead! But that's from my pov. Give it a shot cuz it actually HAS an ending and a sweet one it is! Kinda wish shui was with the brothers cuz I love him to pieces!!

I think there's like, one or two chapters left. So unfair! The art is gorgeous, and it's sad, dramatic, exciting, and an all round great manga! It's a tad confusing at first, but it really grabs you in the end. It's got a pretty dark vibe, but I really love it.

I wish I could read until the end!!

Oh yeah, I like this manga.
But I'm going to explain about Shounen-ai figures here.

Also- about the shounen-ai- where do people get that one from?

@calstine: Here they are (dialogues only) they are in volume 11 which you haven't read yet.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Utsuho: (talking to Atsuma)
Why destroying this world? Why do I have to do that?
What do I want?
Let me tell you.
It’s you.

Sumire: (talking to Utsuho) Your true wish…You’ve been waiting for this, haven’t you? Waiting for him to use his own sword stab right through you…

Utsuho: (talking to Atsuma) I want you to be like me, then together we’ll be falling into darkness. Only so can these dirty hands of mine embrace you tightly. But still, somewhere in my heart, I want you to be able to stay like this forever…

Utsuho: (talking to Atsuma) If I can’t even protect the most important life to me then this existence is meaningless. That’s why I have made up my mind: I will use these stained hands to wash away this filthy world…

Atsuma: (talking to Utsuho) I only need you! Whatever happens, whatever the circumstances, I’m not afraid. As long as you are with me, I’ll be truly happy!

Atsuma: (talking to Utsuho) Are you…are you trying to say that? Saying that…you will leave me alone behind…?

Utsuho’s pov: Why does my heart…still long for you?

A really great manga. Beautiful artwork and the storyline is very unique in it's own and special way. I'm not sure about the ending yet since I have yet to read it, but I can tell that it's going to have a happy ending. (: A definite recommended read~

Beautiful art, good content and a happy ending. ^_^ And those shounen-ai couples are really worth watching.
The love of two brothers reminds me of ItachixSasuke.
