The business of Death is never done. Asato Tsuzuki works as a Shinigami, or Guardian of Death, in the Ministry of Hades. It's his job to make sure that the souls of the dead reach the afterlife, but contrary ghosts and humanity's evils keep making things difficult. With all these problem assignments, will he ever get a bonus... or will he be stuck paying back damages for all eternity?
Young women are being murdered and hanks of their hair cut out at a Kyoto college. Tsuzuki and his fellow Shinigami Hiskoa and Watari travel the campus, where they find the evil Dr. Muraki at the heart of a hideous human cloning experiment. With the help of one of the professors, Muraki is trying to recreate his famous grandfather's success - a subject who lived for eight years without food or water! Tsuzuki and Hisoka pose as teachers to protect the students, but there is no protection from Muraki's terrible claims about Tsuzuki's shadowed past.
