In the beginning, there was a demon in a cave: Blood, trapped in ice for many decades. In order to break the curse that bound him, he searched for the "tear jewel." One day, a youth called Ishuca appeared before him. He was suffering from an illness, and had come to the cave to die. Blood was touched by Ishuca's kindness, and began to feel drawn to him. However, death soon came to Ishuca, and, saddened by the death, Blood began to weep. His tear became the "tear jewel," and Ishuca's life was saved through its power.

The two set off on a journey. On the way, Blood was reunited with some old companions, but—since the demons wanted him to return to his old self, and Blood wanted to continue to travels with Ishuca—his former companions became his enemies. Upon confessing his own past to Ishuca, Blood promised never to kill another human. Having completed their journey—and with the aim of finding the jewel that Wild, the jewel-dealer, had asked for—they find themselves at the Toei Cliffs...!?

I discovered this was finished translating (by fans, I love you all!!!) two days ago, after waiting nine hundred years because it kept being passed around from group to group.

I just finished marathoning it for two days, 24 volumes, and I can't tell you how empty, sad and just overwhelmed, mind blown and how I wish it would have never ended. This is one of the best shounen-ai series I've ever read, and that I've finally been able to finish it when others like Ze, Dark Descendants, Loveless, Love/Sex Pistols haven't, is... I don't even know how to express it.

I just have a lot of ...

Did I come to this expecting some good (or at least cute) couple lovey dovey nonsense with fantasy settings? Yes. Was I disappointed? Somewhat.

I didn't realise the fantasy setting would become such a prominent feature of this series.Don't get me wrong, the minute I understood "oh, so there is going to be an actual fantasy story and it's not just going to be an excuse to get these boys together?" I said, Ok, cool, I can get behind that. Props when they are due: the story is quite good and the ending battle/monologue/all of that jazz was satisfying.

However, that doesn't mean I forgive the romance ...
