A virus is raging across the planet, turning people into bloodsucking superhumans referred to as "Devils." Most victims die within days, sometimes months, but there's a new strain, a new class of Devil that threatens to overtake mankind with power and bloodthirst.

Can Takimoto and the Devil Investigation Section of the Tokyo police force stop this societal scourge? We'll just have to see.
