# Title Original air date
01 Silver Shadow
"Giniro no kage" (銀色の影)
April 7, 2008 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
Akira Nikaido is an easygoing student whose life is about to change after a weird encounter with a strange man who knew Akira’s name. The man, who introduces himself as Shirogane, did not possess a shadow and explains that this is because he is a shadow himself. Shirogane then disappears which made Akira think it was a ghost. Later that night, Akira was forcefully dragged by Kengo and 'enjoy' the night by going to an arcade building. There, they saved a helpless child named Haruka and his old butler from bullies. After the short bout, Aya, the school prefect, found them and was 'very' much angered since the 2 were still outside at night and chased them outside. Cornered, they were about to get 'killed' by Aya's wooden stick, used in Kendo, when she asked for a favor. Accompany her to their school to get what she forgot. They did went there and after getting the dragon plushie, which Aya claims she cannot sleep without it, they started walking outside – only to be attacked by shadow monsters who had scythe-like blades in their arms. Out of fright, Aya beat up Kengo till he got knocked out (mistaking him for a ghost - Aya is afraid of ghost)and she fainted when her plushies head got severed by the shadows' blade. Desperate, Akira tried to ward the shadows away with Aya's kendo sword but it was destroyed by the enemy. Shirogane appears out of nowhere to lend his aid by creating a barrier that protected them all. Akira, thought that he might have been the one who summoned the shadows, which we learned are called "Kokuchi" but Shirogane said no. Confused and not wanting to fight the kokuchi as per Shirogane's suggestion, Akira left the barrier, only to sink and lost his doppleganger self - meaninf he lost his shadow and is now shadowless. Shirogane saved him and offers him one last time if Akira does not want to die there. Reluctantly, he agreed and Shirogane then made a contract by kissing Akira - giving him dark powers, thus, transforming Akira into a Shin like himself. The fight continued until morning. Akira then asked Shirogane how to turn back to being a human, when the latter said he can no longer be a human since he became a Shin or Shadow. Normal people cannot see him, much to Akira's chagrin. But then Shirogane disappeared and Akira returned to his normal self, wearing the same clothes he was wearing before the Kokuchi's attack. Aya and Kengo ran up to him and started talking to him, which Akira thought they cannot see him. He then messes his hair out of frustration.
02 A Scar's Shadow
"Kizuato no kage" (傷痕の影)
April 14, 2008 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
Akira, lying on his bed, is thinking if everything that happened last night was a dream, especially the kiss and when he turns to his right side, he saw Shirogane lying beside him, which made him jump and fall on the floor. Shirogane then confirms to him that it was not a dream, and made advances on him. Akira demands an explanation but Shirogane tells him little and asks him to trust him on this. Akira decides he still doesn't trust Shirogane completely but accepts his explanation for now. While at school, Shirogane flirts with Akira by blowing softly in his right ear, much to Akira's embarassment and yelled at him, forgeting the fact that Shirogane cannot be seen by normal people. After awhile, a Kokuchi appears and broke the window glasses. In order to save his classmates, Shirogane releases himself from Akira, thus, Akira became a Shin again and jumped off from the fifth floor, with Akira saying they might die from jumping to such a high place but Shirogane dismisses it and lands perfectly on the ground. The plan was for Akira to distract the enemy, while Shirogane closes the hole from which the Kokuchis came from. Akira was about to get stabbed when Shirogane saved him (after sealing the darkness hole) but got a deep bite (with the fangs left on his upper right back) from the Kokuchi before finishing it completely. Shirogane then takes Akira to a bar named 'Bar Still" to meet the Master, a blind bartender (but can sense Shin and Kokuchis presence) in possession of very strong psychic abilities. The Master heals both of them and discloses useful information regarding the Doppler item thereby allowing Akira to regain his human form without Shirogane being his shadow, thus freeing him from Shirogane's constant flirting.
03 The Invading Shadow
"Shinshoku suru kage" (侵食する影)
April 21, 2008 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
Akira and Shirogane started hanging out in the 'Bar Still' when Kengo's older sister, Mayu came and spots Akira, to whom she said has become more handsome and wants to play with him like they use to do when they were kids, much to Shirogane's distress. Shirogane tells him to leave and Mayu saw Shirogane's back and thinks he is hot and asks Master who he is. Outside, Shirogane tells Akira that Mayu has a strong ESP sense and may have seen him. Aya then came, passing by with groceries, and saw Akira outside the bar, saying that it is illegal for an underage to drink unless they are 18 years old and then chases after Akira with hailing eggs, one of them manage to hit Shirogane's chest, to his suprise. After getting drunk, Mayu tells Master that in the place where she works, all she see where old men, no one of the younger age and handsome. That is why she always go straight to the bar just to see Masters' face. Mayu has an attraction to good-looking guys (like Akira and later, Shirogane). After completely wasting herself drunk, Mayu staggers to get home, mumbling her unluckiness to find and be with young and handsome men, when she saw 2 blue orbs that seem to be floating. Rubbing her eyes to see clearly, she looked again but it was gone but was suprise to hear a man's voice behind her, a blue-haired guy and told her that he will help her. Due to the darkness in heart for not meeting handsome guys, it lead to her being possessed by a Kokuchi parasite. Akira dropped by at Kengo's place, with the latter being happy bcoz friends rarely visit him. When he returned to his room (he went to get snacks), he saw the other game controller (at that time, Akira was playing a video game with Shirogane) floating, and saw that Akira was playing a 2-player fighting game and asked him about that. Akira dismissed it and changed the subject while eating the cake which Kengo brought with him. Kengo was about to eat his share as well when his cake has been stolen by Shirogane, again with the floating fork and saucer on Kengo's back and Akira sees this, and tries to distract Kengo. The doorbell rang and Kengo went up to get it but saw his sister, already possessed by the Kokuchi parasite. When Mayu acts strangely, she went first to Shirogane but he disappeared, leaving Kengo and Akira and she went straight for the latter one, knocking Kengo out of the way (twice) while sprouting how handsome Akira is and that they will do something nice together. Akira notices Mayu's strange behaviour but Kengo explains that she is always like this when she drunk too much. In order to escape her, Akira and Kengo went out of the room and closed the door but Mayu just punched a hole in the middle, then completely destroying the door with ease. Panicked, Kengo thinks that her sister may have been possessed by a spirit since she has a spirit mediums body and went to get a salt used in exorcism, asking Akira to keep his sister busy. Not knowing what to do, Akira runs downstairs and asked Shirogane what is happening. Shirogane explains that she was possessed, not a spirit but a Kokuchi parasite since she has darkness in her heart. Kengo appears with the salt and Akira immediately uses it on Shirogane, with the latter saying he is not a bad spirit. Kengo sprinkles the salt to his sister but had little effect, and in retaliation, Mayu grabs for Kengo and flings him against the wall. Akira tries to talk some sense to Mayu while she strangles her little brother, who finally lose consciousness. Mayu then said no one is going to interfere and starts to advance towards Akira. No other choice, Akira changes to a Shin and tries to make her realized what has happened but Shirogane thinks it is useless since the parasite is nearly one with the host. Not about to give up, Akira wakes up Kengo and asked him to make Mayu recover her human memories, but Kengo brought one memory that just made Mayu more angry. She then unleashed a sea of darkness with the 2 having a hard time to stay afloat. Thinking that Akira might die, Shirogane decided to kill Mayu, much to Akira's protest. Shirogane launched himself for an attack and Kengo saw this, and calls at his sister one last time. Mayu regained her own self and saw Shirogane about to attack her, and she had a nose bleed due to extreme hotness that she saw and finally the parasite left her body and Akira finished it. Kengo then pesters Akira about becoming his sidekick but Mayu wakes up and was happy to see 2 hot men (Akira and Shirogane) were there and managed to grab Akira, much to his dismay and annoyance.

As Akira explains to Kengo about the Kokuchi and Shirogane, Aya appears and forces them to watch her kendo lesson as punishment for skipping class. During the lesson, they meet Aya's teacher, Hiroki Tsukikage who is a hard core Japanese who values honor above anything else. Hiroki continues to give lecture and asked Aya to trained with him to see how to hold a sword properly. They were dressed with the protective coverings and the training commensed, with the 2 watching and also Shirogane, but later Aya lost to her much more experienced sempai. Before going home, she was told that they will have an Iai training (using of a real sword - in this case, a katana to train) the next day and so to prepare, and Aya responds animatedly. He also noticed that Akira's button was placed incorrectly and was about to straighten it out when Akira dismisses that hand away (he actually flicked it away). Before he could retort a bad remark, Aya covered his mouth. Her sempai left and Akira is already losing his breath when Aya decides to let him go. Later, Tsukikage finds himself surrounded by the corruption in Japan's streets (like the 3 female junior high school students who were sitting outside a convenience store and were laughing and belittle him when he told them to go home or the prostitutes calling out to him to spend a good night), and so he went to a nearby park to release his frustration on those situations when the guy with the blue haired appeared and is soon possessed by a Kokuchi parasite. The following day, news of a Sword-Killer spreads. He actually did not kill the victims but they suffered injuries that they had to sent to a hospital. The victims were actually the people whom Tsukikage saw the other night and considered them not having any honor at all. Aya, waited for her sempai whom scheduled an Iai training with her, again with Akira and Kengo but he did not show up. The 2 went home seperately, Aya then Akira and Kengo. Meanwhile, Mayu staggers to get home while being drunk and mumbling again about handsome guys when the stranger who attacks people appeared in front of her and noticed that she is wearing a clothing that showed her navel, which he considered offensive. He then attacked Mayu. While walking home, Aya wonders about the wandering stranger who attacks people when she heard Mayu's scream. She rushed to that direction and saw that a man is about to hurt Mayu with a katana sword but deflected it with her own sword. She asked Mayu to run but the latter realized she got a sprained ankle and thus, cannot even stand up. The duo (Akira and Kengo) also arrived at the place and decided to intervene. Aya is now faced with the Sword-Killer, who turns out to be Tsukikage. As Akira and Kengo try to defeat the Kokuchi, Aya awakens her latent powers and defeats it herself. Afterwards, Shirogane persuades Akira into having comrades, as they are a necessity to him. Akira then agreed, seeing that Aya is very promising in terms of fighting and accepted her as a comrade-in-arms but Kengo also insists he also be accepted which Akira dismisses and ignores him.

Angry that Akira refuses to let him be his ally, Kengo walks away from the situation and fights with a couple of upperclassmen, saving Haruka in the process (who is being bullied again and wants his money - again). Later, they left Kengo get soaked in the rain because, as Haruka explained, they were times that someone wants to be just be left alone and let the rain fall on them. Meanwhile, on a grassfield near a river bank, Akira lies on the grass and Aya tries to persuade him to apologize since Kengo is always there for him, even if Akira is a stuck up bastard at times, heck, even when they were kids and Akira will get in a battle, Kengo appears and helps him out. Meanwhile, while getting soaked in the rain with the beat-up bullies, Kengo reflects on the situation when the blue haired guy appeared and sent, not 1 but 3 kokuchis to enter Kengo. Later, the very same blue haired man with the eyepatch appears and introduces himself as Nanaya. He then leaves a Kokuchi-possessed Kengo to fight Akira, while Nanaya's subordinate, Ruru (by the way, she calls Nanaya as Nana-chan), appeared and taunts Aya, mainly she is a gorilla and a breast-less girl. Ruru reveals that Shirogane (she called him Shirogane-sama) is a direct descendant of the Royal Shin, to which Shirogane responses as the position of keeping both worlds (the light world - where Akira is and the Shadow world - the place where Shirogane came from) in balance. Before the fight ended, Ruru left saying she does not intend to fight. After beating the 3 Kokuchi out of Kengo, Akira reveals that he doesn't want to drag Kengo into fighting Kokuchi and risk him getting hurt, but is persuaded by Kengo otherwise. Akira then 'looked' in Shirogane's inside coat by searching with his right hand (he is facing Shirogane's back), which we see a blushing Shirogane commenting that they should not do it in a public place and an equally blushing Aya, Akira handed Kengo the Al Cesta glove, and finally accepts him as his ally.

The others who appeared to be safe reached Akira, Shirogane and Haruka with Mayu and Master. Shirogane was then given back his Darkness powers, that he first gave to Akira, the same way like he did and dissapeared back into the Shadow world, according to Master. Even though Master was not sure if he'd be safe back there ot not. Life went back to normal after that and Akira was more than happy to lead his boring life, again.
