Plot Summary: Clad in black and carrying a coffin, a mysterious girl calling herself Kuro is embarking on a long journey to find a witch. She carries the coffin with the knowledge that she will inevitably have to use it by journey's end. On her way Kuro is accompanied by a large group of bats who tag along in her coffin, among them being Kuro's primary companion, Sen. Kuro is also joined by two adolescent cat-girls named Nijuku and Sanju, whom of which have a large number of strange abilities. Along her way, Kuro meets a plethora of characters who constantly confuse her for a boy, devil, mortician, God of Death, or a vampire due to her appearance. Despite these outward appearances and the morose nature of her journey, Kuro always helps those in need and leaves a lasting impression on all.
