In a city so dismal it’s known only as “the Hole,” a clan of Sorcerers have been plucking people off the streets to use as guinea pigs for atrocious “experiments” in the black arts. In a dark alley, Nikaido found Caiman, a man with a reptile head and a bad case of amnesia. To undo the spell, they’re hunting and killing the Sorcerers in the Hole, hoping that eventually they’ll kill the right one. But when En, the head Sorcerer, gets word of a lizard-man slaughtering his people, he sends a crew of “cleaners” into the Hole, igniting a war between two worlds.

Q Hayashida launched the manga series in Shogakukan‘s Monthly Ikki magazine in 1999. The manga ended in Monthly Shonen Sunday’s October issue in September 2018. The anime series begins to broadcast in Japan on January 12, 2020. It will also stream worldwide on Netflix.
