Ibuki, a child of a fox spirit and a human, is despised by his fox spirit relatives due to his parentage. However, Ibuki’s own fox spirit abilities awaken at the age of 13 upon the death of his father, giving him close to godlike powers. To escape those who want to use his powers for devious purposes, Ibuki seals his powers away and hides in plain sight as the personal assistant of Tadatsugu, the next head of the Kuki family, the strongest of all fox spirit families. Despite Tadatsugu’s extremely intimate body touches, Ibuki works hard to be good at his job. But what happens when a god of death from Ibuki’s family tracks him down? How much longer can Ibuki run from those who want his power?
