Ranmaru Shindo wants to solve the mystery of his parents' death. Along with his younger sister, Saya, he joins the police force intending to solve the brutal crime. But on the day of his graduation he is late, distracted by dreams of a mysterious red-haired woman standing in a pile of corpses, holding a giant sword. This is just the beginning for Shindo, who soon finds himself plunged into a world of darkness and demons. He is drawn to the mysterious woman, Sakura Rokujo, and to the Tokko division-the only thing saving Japan from being overrun by demons. Creator of the popular series Rose Hip Rose and Rose Hip Zero, Fujisawa brings readers an action-packed story that moves swiftly through the underbelly of Japan. The art, like the story itself, is stylish and sexy. While possessing many of the familiar manga elements, Tokko entertains with a well-executed take.
