A peculiar longing pulls Yuki towards him—is this the mysterious man from his dreams? He’s left with questions but no time for answers as danger begins lurking around every corner. Evil beings appear, known as “Duras”, seeking the power that dwells within him. But the mystery of who he is, and who he once was, will bring everything crashing down around him. He has a choice: side with the Giou clan and their Zweilts—powerful duos who fight the Duras—or follow his beloved childhood friend down the path to humanity’s demise. Torn between two sides, only Luka promises him loyalty, devotion, and protection against a world filled with secrets and betrayal.
