In the pure home of the Shishigami clan, Kuro and Keita prepare to face Reishin Shishigami and stop him before his terrible vision for the future is realized. Despite what Kuro and Keita know about the shared history of humans and the mototsumitama and the events that led to mototsumitama dominance, Reishin's plot to downsize the human population is too cruel to bear! But in the heart of the Shishigami's territory, an unexpected enemy arises to decisively correct the imbalance of the world-the ancient genuine ones themselves! With such mighty foes before them, do Keita and Kuro have the strength to change the fate of all mankind?!

The series as a whole: This series was amazing! but short. The artwork was what pulled me in at first and I have to say you won't be disappointing if you're the person who picks up a book based on artwork. Basically, the series was about Kuro, a mototsumitama whose family was murdered by her older brother and she alone was left as a survivor (Uchiha much lol). She leaves her homeland in order to take revenge on her brother only to find that there is a more sinister plot going on; her brother is attempting to get rid of a large portion of humans using the root system that had been put into place centuries before. Kuro and her contractee Keita (some guy who got his arm chopped off in the first book, haha) begin training and fighting other contracted mototsumitama in order to stop this evil plan, only to find that the intentions behind such a plan weren't so evil to begin with. Everything flows smoothly (to a certain point) and the plot is well developed. It gives you easy to understand explanations, well developed characters, background history, and humor/romance, as well as some action! The Last Book: This series was amazing! Collected all the books and I have to say I'm very sad it's over. Everything was cleared up in this book and I felt slightly meh about Kuro just changing her mind about avenging her family (since she learns that it was actually their mother who told her brother to kill the family and the subs in order to restore order before the genuine ones came to pass judgement). It was very Naruto-ish I guess. I loved the art! It was very nicely done, the idea behind the whole thing as well. While I had been waiting for some romance I was slightly disappointed when it was finally given to me (and super sad!). The only thing, I guess I "didn't like", was that Keita got married and had a kid. There really wasn't much about how he felt for Kuro other than the fact that he named his kid after the both of them (Kurata). Then, the last thing, when Kuro finally does come back and meets Kurata was quite hilarious since she pretty much was like, Oh I've been asleep since forever and I'm super hungry so take me to your house. Seriously, only she would. I'm kind of hoping that it could continue but I'm not sure what else could be done...super sad it's over! (sobs)
