Plot Summary: The world of magic crosses paths with that of human reality, and only a select few people can see these interactions. Misao Harada wishes she couldn’t see the monsters and just wants to lead a normal high school life with the hopes of getting a boyfriend. One day, she is attacked by one of these demons only to be saved by her childhood friend, Kyo, who has reappeared after years of being absent. She learns from him that her blood is special, and demons hunger for the power it holds. In order to stay alive, he suggests that she remain by his side, even if he is a demon too.
