    Corpse Princess, Vol. 1

    By Yoshiichi Akahito

    Fight corpses with corpses!!

    Reanimated corpses called Shikabane walk the earth, but the Kougon Sect of the Grand Marshal School of Shingon Esoteric Buddhism has a means to combat them. Enter the Corpse Princesses! Undead-killers (usually young women) stand as humanity's first line of defense against the evil that lurks in the shadows, but can humanity tolerate defenders who are corpses themselves...?

    One Corpse Princess, Makina, may be the first to find out!

    "I'm recruiting shikabane in order to crush the Kougon Sect."

    So says the former chief gonshou-Soujou of the Kougen Sect -- Akasha Shishidou -- a name to be feared and loathed. And like it or not, encountering him means nothing but death. As events begin to unfold, others are mercilessly caught up in his game. Even the girl who embodies death is no exception.

    "Answer me, big bro...!!"

    Ouri Kagami's peaceful, everyday life has begun to erode. Makina encounters the targets of her revenge -- the Seven Stars. Keisei watches as the darkness that surrounds his own life encroaches on his family. And Akasha and his Unclean Bunch writhe in the shadows. Slowly but surely, the line between this world and the next begins to blur...

    "I'll destroy you all...! Every last one of you," vows Makina Hoshimura. She and Ouri are brought together by pity, dread, compassion...and a promise. This transient world of ours is driven by such passion. They know they can't bring him back, yet they plunge deeper into the otherworldly mire brought about by the Unclean Bunch.

    "I remembered that I'm a Corpse Princess," says Makina Hoshimura. She's ready to stand up again and fight, even if it's against her inescapable destiny. Even if it means forgetting the name of the one she loved most. But the darkness whirls, and the Unclean Bunch's supreme king violates heavenly laws and breaks boundaries as he writhes into existence once again.

    "Like a youngster waiting for the completion of his new plaything," so says Ma'en Sugami of the Unclean Bunch, the revived demon lord and ultimate evil entity. The die is cast, the earth is befouled, and the Unclean Bunch's king bides his time before invading. Meanwhile, Ouri continues to strugge. The young contracting monk has no skills -- only his corpse princess, Makina. Their time is running out.

    "I'll take it, Mr. Contract Holder," says Makina Hoshimura to her partner in the struggle, Ouri Kagami. They're both determined now, and it's no token gesture out of mere pity. But the Shikabane have the last laugh as inescapable regrets hasten the coming of their Land of the Dead experiment. Leading them is the cornerstone Shikabane swarm and the target of Makina's revenge--the Seven Stars.

    "I'll take everything. Until......there's nothing left of you!!" so says Makina Hoshimura. Such is her grim determination in the face of the Seven Stars, for they are now bound to each other as "enemies." So she struggles to stand against them. That's all she knows how to do, even if the despair-filled Land of the Dead lies ahead.

    "She's gonna kill him!? Itsuki's gonna...kill Tomoharu!!" so says Takamasa Sougi. His friend is a Shikabane, and his crush is a Corpse Princess. Such is his cruel reality. So now, "death" faces off against "aberration." What must contracting monk Ouri think after hearing the end of this tragic tale? What does the future hold for him and his Corpse Princess, Makina?

    "This is my best chance to confront the Seven Stars again!"

    So says Makina Hoshimura. She trusts in Ouri's decision to participate in Operation Sealed Deity--the mission to defeat the Unclean Bunch's king. Meanwhile, the young contracting monk struggles to rise to the occasion in the face of the founder's assault. The head temple is in chaos as the fight against Milam intensifies.

    "Take care. Our sect's duty is to protect this nation."

    So says Dai-soujou Shinze Kamiu. His edict concerns "Operation Sealed Deity," the mission to take out the enemies' king. In this do-or-die plan, only one thing matters to Ouri--defeating the Seven Stars. For they are the targets of Mainka's regrets. It's all on the line in the battle against the Unclean Bunch.

    "None may oppose heaven's mandate. That is Absolute."


    So says Ma'en Sugami of the unclean bunch. "Operation Sealed Deity" is the mission to defeat him, but even hope is lost in the face of this king's power. Takamasa is driven to despair when faced with overwhelming calamity. Meanwhile, Ouri, Makina, Sadahiro, and Akasha are bound by their regret over Keisei.
