Jiu Jiu is one of Viz media’s new series that came out last month. Touya Tobina has had one other series published in English, Clean Freak Fully Equipped, but not many got into it because the first volume came out right at the folding of Tokyopop. So I was eager to take a look at what Viz had managed to license from her.
The Gist: Main character Takamichi is a demon hunter who loses her twin brother as a child. She then comes to inherit a pair of shape-shifting familiars, wolf pups, that she names Snow and Night. An annoying responsibility at first, Takamichi comes to rely on the unconditional love and loyalty of her familiars. Now in high school, Takamichi goes on hunts regularly and is stalked by demons. Night and Snow have learned to take on human form and are willing to go to any lengths to protect their master, even attending high school!
