Story[edit | edit source]

Introduction[edit | edit source]

Set in the Japan's Heian Period. There was a capital of a beautiful country, full of brilliant light, with magnificent flowers every season.

However, if the light is strong, the darkness will increase its dignity. When the sun sets and the night comes, a mysterious Horror (火羅(ホラー) Horā) monster jumps into the city and attacks humans. Poor folk that could not receive the spiritual protection of Onmyoji like a nobleman with the privilege to enter the center of the city, Mitsumiya, was frightened by Horror at night.

As if to save those people, they appeared out of nowhere, and those who annihilated Horror appeared. They are Makai Priest (魔戒法師 Makai Hōshi) who uses extraordinary legal force like a trainee, and Makai Knight (魔戒騎士 Makai Kishi) who fights Horror with the power of the army with respective armor. They were collectively called "guardians" (守りし者 Morishi-sha) by the people.
