Plot Summary: Most humans do not know that every person is one of three doppel liners, three people who share the same fate, and that god-like beings called mototsumitama protect the natural balance of power in the world. However, Keita Ibuki, a videogame programmer from Tokyo, is suddenly drawn into the intrigues of the mototsumitama during a chance encounter with Kuro, a young mototsumitama who makes a contract with Keita in order to save his life. Along with Keita's childhood friend Akane Sano, the pair begins to investigate strange disruptions in the natural balance of power that seem to be connected to a powerful clan of mototsumitama.

Although it was first published in Japanese, Black God was first written in Korean, then translated into Japanese and published. Because this title was created for the Japanese market, it was originally created in the right to left format of Japanese manga, not the left to right format of Korean manhwa. Other titles created by Lim and Park were created initially published in Korean in left to right format.
