Wondering what Yashakiden is all about? Here's the back copy! Yashakiden will be available in stores in late December!
Beautiful manhunter Setsura Aki has seen strange and even dangerous creatures in Demon City Shinjuku. The ravaged city living on borrowed time at the edge of a black hole is a place where sin and debauchery can be found around every corner.
But nothing prepared him for the arrival of them.
Four Chinese vampires – frighteningly evil, ancient and deadly. They have waited centuries for the perfect moment to enter the only city suited to them…Shinjuku. Led by the breathtakingly beautiful – and depraved – female vampire known only as Princess, they begin claiming victims in the haunted city, using every sensual and sadistic means at their disposal. What could be their ultimate aim?
Setsura Aki, Shinjuku’s No. 1 private eye, along with the enigmatic Doctor Mephisto, must stop Princess and her three followers before Demon City falls under their spell forever. Can these two men unravel the mystery and use their own extraordinary paranormal talents to stop this ultimate evil? Or will they be destroyed by unfathomable powers greater than any they could imagine?
