Fuji takes cultural and mythological aspects from eastern society and bundles it with original fiction. Sun goddesses, Elder dragons, and magical powers galore.
If you want to start reading without any predisposed knowledge of the story, you may do so Here.
With that in mind, let’s go into where we start this story-
The sun goddess Amaterasu has gone missing, plunging the earth into eternal night. Beings of darkness and pain have started emerging from the shadows and have been deemed the title Yokai. The shogunate has formed a committee of samurai and swordsmen gifted with the embers of Amaterasu to slay the beasts of shadow, but their efforts have grown unsuccessful.
Ash covers the land as snow. The embers of a forgotten time have died out. All that’s left is us and the dark.
