In the second volume of Maohden, Setsura Aki arrives at the Coliseum Death Matches to rescue the seal—the girl known as Mayumi. But Setsura is not the only one who knows Mayumi’s secret. In the shadows beneath the Coliseum, his arch-enemy Gento Roran works to pull the strings to outwit Setsura’s every move. Meanwhile, at the other end of Demon City, Azusa Sasaki investigates the suspicious dig behind the new mortuary. What dark thing does Gento Roran seek beneath the earth? And can Azusa ferret it out before Gento’s henchman Hyota tracks her down? As Setsura moves closer to the truth, new alliances and allegiances are forged in the city on the edge of the abyss. Even the Demon Physician, Doctor Mephisto, is brought into the conflict—at Gento’s behest. Gento’s secret plan to overpower Setsura finds a willing accomplice in Mephisto—or so it seems. Destroying Gento’s seat of power is Setsura’s aim. When Setsura discovers its location, a new crisis arises. For the place that holds Gento’s accursed coffin is the most haunted building in Demon City Shinjuku—and home to its most terrifying monster. Don’t miss the thrilling second installment in Hideyuki Kikuchi’s acclaimed horror trilogy, Maohden.
