While the stores are fantastic, the social commentaries are not.
-Publishers Weekly


Glamour has two meanings: the modern one of style, and the ancient one of sorcery. Tokyo Babylon is the realm of both! It's 1991, the last days of Japan's bubble economy, and money and elegance run through the streets like rivers of neon. So do the currents of darkness beneath them — obsession, greed, and exploitation, nourishing evil spirits that only the arts of the onmyoji — Japan's legendary occultists — can combat. The two most powerful remaining onmyoji are in the unlikely guises of a handsome young veterinarian, Seishiro, and the teenage heir to the ancient Sumeragi clan, Subaru — just a couple of guys who Subaru's sister Hokuto has decided are destined to be...a couple!
