This story questions the form and nature of justice around the theme of “hero and the devil”. Yusura, a traveler from the East, enters a domain where a legend survives about a hero who saved the people from the devil. Instead, he witnesses the tragic landscape of a devastated ghost town. Suspicious of what happened, Yusura explores the town and encounters an old man. Though young, this artist develops this online fantasy manga with mastery.
