This was Araki sensei’s first shounen manga challenge in Shounen Sirius. By incorporating one fiction element called “devil” while keeping the real line set in the real world up to the previous work, it has become an interesting work of fiction as a ‘battle of different abilities of demon possessions!’ in young audiences.
Kodansha is publishing the manga in their “Monthly Shounen Sirius” magazine in Japanese since March 2019. They describe the story as:
“Kenji Sakamoto, an ordinary high school boy, was trying to contact the current criminal who caused a murderous terrorist attack in Akihabara, Tokyo. All to follow the whereabouts of his childhood friend Nao, who disappeared. What happened to them? The story is told from a corner of Kita-Kantou a year ago!”
