If the deeds and crimes of the human world are shadow,

Excerpt from the Makai Poem Compilation, chapter 99.
A long time ago, the magical beast Alice, once called Messiah’s Tear, was sealed in a stone tablet by the Makai priests, fearing its power. Nine magical beasts had to be used as a foundation. In the present, the stone tablet is displayed in a museum, the abhorrent past long forgotten. One night, a man dressed in black destroys the tablet and the nine Horrors are unleashed into the world.
Raiga Saejima, a Makai Knight belonging to the Blue Jurisdiction, is ordered by Priestess Jiiru to seal Alice again. Alice is hidden in one of the nine Horrors as a seed, waiting for its time to fully bloom. However, a special Madogu (or Makai Knight accessory – i.e Garo’s Zaruba ring) is necessary to seal it. Raiga will be visited by the Senate’s envoy with the Madogu. Using his deduction and action skills, Raiga is able to corner one of the released Horrors, Azdab. Garo and Azdab clash. A young girl, Mayuri, watches. She is the envoy from the Senate.
Will Raiga be able to reseal Alice? What is the Madogu that Mayuri brought from the Senate? What was the intention of the man who destroyed the tablet? Raiga will never give up, overcoming numerous obstacles. Garo, stop Alice’s full bloom!
