Author books

A bright high schooler has discovered to his horror that death is just a repeatabl event for him - and that humanity has no mercy for a demi-human. To avoid becoming a science experiement for the rest of his interminable life, Kei Nagai must seek out others of his kind. But what would a community of them stand for?

Volume 2 also includes the AJIN pilot chapter - File: 00 "The Shinya Nakamura Incident."
High school student Kei Nagai is struck dead in a grisly traffic accident, but immediately revives to learn that he may not be like every other human. Instead, he may be a mysterious, almost immortal being, granted not only the powers of rejuvenation, but the abilities to see supernatural beings. Scared, he runs away, and is aided in his escape from society by his friend. Unfortunately for Kei, the manhunt is on and he will soon be caught within a conflict between mankind and others like him as they prepare to fight a new war based on terror.
The true aim of the raid on the research center is revealed by demi-human mastermind Sato, whose Bolshevik ruthlessness and cunning prove worthy of his choice of headgear.
Encouraged by a fellow demi-human's stunt, many more who have been keeping a low profile come out the woodworks. Their morals vary - and a high schooler Kei Nagai is by no means the most decent among them.
Soon to be animated as a three-part theatrical feature, in this volume the hit on-going series further fleshes out its intriguing cast. Learn how the female demi-human “Izumi” can on stage, how a trustworthy friend who left it spent his days, and more.
It's all-out war. After demi-humans mobilize to overthrow the government of Japan -terror and immortality their prime tactics- young cynic Kei must decide if he's on anyone's side other than his own.
