Shikabane are the living dead who still live even after they die because of a strong attachment or obsession to their life. They attack people and kill them. Shikabane Hime on the other hand are Shikabane created to hunt Shikabane. A boy, Kagami Ouri, was adopted by Tagami Keisei, a Buddhist priest of the Kongon Clan, when he was a child, and was raised in an asylum. One night he encounters a beautiful girl at the temple who works for the chief priest. She is Hoshimura Makina, a Shikabane Hime, who hunts Shikabane together with Keisei, her contracted priest.
