The grotesque Millennium Earl is an enemy of all of humanity. His greatest weapons are vile machines known as "Akuma," whose creation is made possible by the human emotions of despair and longing. Those who can purge Akuma from the world are known as Exorcists. One such Exorcist is a girl named Robin, whose odd appearance mismatches her sheepish personality. Long ago, she lost someone important to her, which now serves as her driving motivation.

After washing up on the shores of Osaka, Robin comes across a girl named Lenalee, who yearns for the lover she had lost at sea years ago. These feelings of longing catch the attention of the Millennium Earl, who has likely found his next victim...

The precursor to magaka Katsuran Hoshino's work D.Gray-Man. You can 100% tell this was the base of D.Gray-Man.

She goes to japan to return her masters ancient relic. She ends up getting into trouble with a local restaurant for eating food and scaring away costumers. They put her to work to pay off this debt. She bonds with the other girl that works there and finds that her fiancé died on the same wreck that ...
