Tokyo Demons Vol. 1 (new paperback edition)

(1 customer review)


Nuns raised Ayase Watanabe. They didn’t know that from the moment she was born, she could turn her body into a swarm of insects. Jo Oda grew up in Japan’s foster system. His talent for picking pockets supported him as he was bounced from home to home.

The two of them enter high school in Tokyo, hoping to hide their secret talents and live safe, isolated lives. But when a friendly classmate attaches to Ayase, and a quiet roommate grows on Jo, the four of them are pulled into a botched drug deal that sets off a chain reaction, dragging them all into an underground power struggle between some of the most dangerous–and supernatural–powers in the city. And Ayase’s strange ability becomes the weapon that changes everything.

  1. joichi

    Intriguing series with complicated teenagers. The story has 2 lead characters, we get insecure Ayase’s story as well as Jo Oda who’s a cool antihero. I enjoy the audio drama which help get familiar with the cast and the book to wrap it up. Most recommended for a darker action story.
