Once upon a time there was a little girl. One day, this girl awoke in a house she did not know and without the comfort of her family. The owner of the house appeared to be earnest, yet the most he could muster to the little girl about the fate of her village was that it was lost. At that moment the child made an oath; she would find out the truth about what occurred there. Over ten years have passed since the day. The young girl grew up into a strong willed woman that is more than willing to kill anything or anybody that stands in her way. At long last, the young woman is ready to embark upon her journey. Reluctantly following her is an amnesiac man that was found along the outskirts of the village the same day she was. Despite being raised as siblings for the past ten years, their polar opposite personalities always manages to raise tension between the two. Is there even the slightest possibility that these two will be able to reach the village of Tsuchihi without strangling the other first?
So, this is actually the comic's title page with all the characters that play major roles during the story's first half on it. Although not technically the first page, we felt that it worked with the mood for them setting off on their journey together.
