Reads R to L (Japanese Style), for audiences T. By night, teenager Yoshimori Sumimura is a "kekkaishi"--a demon-hunter who specializes in creating magical barriers around his prey. By day, Yoshimori's got other demons to battle: an addiction to sweets and a seriously crotchety grandfather! Yoshimori's pretty neighbor and childhood friend, Tokine Yukimura, is also a kekkaishi, but their families are feuding over who is the true practitioner of the art. Yoshimori' s absentee mother, Sumiko, makes an unexpected appearance at Karasumori but not for a tearful family reunion. Sumiko leads Yoshimori and Tokine through a labyrinth to find and remove the mystical site' s mysterious guardian... What does Sumiko know of the circumstances surrounding Tokine' s father' s death? Can she be trusted? Can Karasumori' s guardian be trusted...? And what fate awaits Karasumori if its guardian leaves?!
