So sorry…».

I've been working at a leisurely pace for the past ten days, so I apologize for not finishing the chapter on time. I didn't get an appointment with the specialist until the end of the month, but a lot of checkups are scheduled for tomorrow so I'll do a full exam!».

Synopsis of Machikado Mazoku

After a strange dream of a mysterious ancestor, student Yuuko Yoshida wakes up to see that she has demonic horns and a tail. Dazed and confused, her mother reveals a dark family secret: Her family comes from a dark clan that was exiled to live helplessly and helplessly by their mortal enemies, the magical girls of the Clan of Light. The only way to lift her ancestral curse is for Yuuko to find a magical girl, kill her, and spill her blood on her ancestor's demon god statue.

Fortunately for "Shadow Mistress Yuuko", a magical girl saves her from being run over by an oncoming truck. Unfortunately, Momo Chiyoda is Yuuko's classmate at Sakuragaoka High and much stronger than her in both strength and endurance. The magical girl sympathizes with her weak attacker and agrees to train Yuuko and help her unlock her sleep powers. Now Yuuko must stand up and defeat her generous friend-enemy in order to save her family from the terrible curse of poverty.
