It is twelve volumes long and was serialized in Gentosha Comics' Comic Birz magazine, and licensed by Tokyopop in the west. The manga is rated 18+ due to its scenes of violence and nudity.


The story follows main protagonist Yusuke Himukai, on his quest to rescue is beloved Kikuri from the vampire Migiri, with the help of his loyal servant Kuraha, Migiri has been brought back to life and has taken Kikuri as his new bride. Yusuke races to save her, and he fights Migiri, costing him his hand in the process. Two years later Yusuke is found in a mental institution.


In Jason Thompson's online appendix to Manga The Complete Guide, he describes the manga as "super-gory horror drama", but notes that the plot is a"gripping, complicated story which unpeels effortlessly". He notes that the mangaka here is departing from her usual style, but that the manga's style suits the story being told.[1]
