Daemons of the Shadow Realm 01 (Paperback)
Have you seen or read Fullmetal Alchemist or Silver Spoon? Well, this manga is written by the same author as those! This is their new series with the same dark feeling as Fullmetal Alchemist, mixed with a magical twist. In this world, some humans possess the ability to command powerful Daemons. They are governed by a prophecy of "children who will separate day and night," destined to rule over all Daemons. When these children were born, they were separated and raised by two opposing parties. In the first volume, follow the story of Yuru. He was raised under the watchful eyes of two stone guardians in a remote mountain village, believing that his precious twin, Asa, was carrying out mysterious 'duties' while locked in a cage. Read the story as Yuru starts to undercover the lies his village always held for him and what it could mean for his future.

Ancient Daemons awaken to fight a new battle in an age-old war!!
In a remote mountain village under the watchful eyes of two stone guardians, the young Yuru contentedly lives off the land while staying close to the only family he has left—Asa, his precious twin sister. Asa, meanwhile, carries out a mysterious “duty” on behalf of the village while locked in a cage. Why is Asa a prisoner? And what other secrets does Yuru’s otherwise idyllic home hide?
