Plot Summary: Ritsuka's life has never been normal. At the time of his older brother's murder, he lost all of his memories and became a different person. He feels he's never been loved for who he is. Enter a mysterious 'adult' friend of his older brother, Soubi, who always wears bandages around his neck. Carved there is 'Beloved'... Because he was Seimei's warcraft, someone who, with the 'sacrifice', (Ristuka and Seimei are 'sacrifices') fights psychic battles using spoken word. Ritsuka must deal with Soubi's feelings for him. Does Soubi care abut him because Seimei told him to... Ritsuka is angry that Soubi might not even care about him for who he is, but he still fights alongside of him on the search for Nanatsu no Tsuki, his brother's killer. One interesting and wonderful fact that draws many girls to this series: it has catboys. This story focuses on relationships and is very clearly shounen-ai, or yaoi. Ritsuka must kiss or often lick Soubi during fights for strength... But he's 'Loveless'.
