Yakumo died -- and his life will never be the same again. He's become a zombie, courtesy of his newly found friend Pai, herself an immortal being with strange powers and a talent for attracting trouble. His only course seems to be to leave Japan -- and his old life -- behind forever. But when the marauding monster called the Gesu attacks, he's got to stand his ground and defend Pai. To lose the fight is to sacrifice immortality and leave Pai helpless!
