Tokyo Babylon Synopsis

Subaru Sumeragi is a 16-year-old who, after the death of his parents, became the thirteenth leader of the most important family of onmyōjis in Japan, the Sumeragi, who served the emperor for centuries. As such, Subaru is either asked by the government to solve cases that affect the supernatural, or he encounters people in need whom he has to help with his might due to his generosity. Subaru lives in Tokyo with his twin sister Hokuto, a girl whose extroversion and eccentricity contrast with her brother's shy nature. They both have a neighbor and friend, Seishirō Sakurazuka, a friendly 25 year old veterinarian who claims to be in love with Subaru. Seishiro's possible affiliation with the rival clan of the Sakurazuka, who use Onmyōdō techniques to kill, is one of the main plot nodes that appear in the chapters.
