Kemono Jihen Vol. 01. Prepare for a monstrously good time with this action-packed mystery about a detective and a supernatural boy investigating the occult–which inspired the anime!
In a quiet rural village, livestock has been dying off in a strange manner. Inugami, a detective of the occult, is summoned from Tokyo to solve the mystery. He meets a boy scorned by the villagers, who call him Dorotabo after a yokai that dwells in the muddy fields. Inugami soon learns that there is more to the boy than meets the eye…and vice-versa.
