What Jay happens to find there is there is now an academy called Koyomi Academy standing in the place where his mansion once stood. Jay took up the name Jinguji Koma and became the student council president of the school as he looks for clues about the past. This was all in order for him to regain his former life. A hundred years’ worth of emotions bring upon reunions and separations. The secrets behind a bloodline that’s lasted a thousand years and their fate… Jay will eventually find out the truth behind this world. A thousand year old bloodline and a hundred years’ worth of emotions descend.
