Plot Summary: Loki, the Norse god of mischief, has been exiled to the human world for what was apparently was a bad joke. Along with being exiled, he’s forced to take the form of a child. He’s told the only way he can get back to the world of the gods is if he can collect auras of evil that take over human hearts, and so to do this he runs a detective agency. However, at some point other Norse gods begin to appear, and with the intent to assassinate him for reasons unclear.

Originally serialized in GanGan Comics (published by Enix), Matantei Loki changed publishers to Mag Garden's Blade Comics. For trademark reasons the Mag Garden version had to have a different name, so the name was changed to Matantei Loki Ragnarok. 7 volumes worth were published by Enix, while there are currently 3 volumes available from Mag Garden, with a fourth due in April 2003.
