Tokyo Demon Bride Story Chapter 8 Story
It is a story based on the traditional concept of Devils and forest caretaking spirits. The story begins by introducing the demon girl who is traveling to Tokyo in search of a 17-year-old boy named Jinta who once saved her life and promised to marry her. Jinta was somebody who was working multiple part-time jobs all the time just to make ends meet.
He lived in a little broken-down house in Chuo Ward, Tokyo with his two sisters Matsuri (the older one) and Tsumugi (the youngest). The demon Manakado Ji shows up at his front door declaring that she has come for ‘Sir Jinta Hanafuda’ and that she hasn’t seen him for 10 years to which Jinta reacts with a statement he believes to be true that he must be dreaming.
He lets her in hoping she would leave soon unaware of the fact that she is going to make him sign a cohabitation contract shortly. He seems to have forgotten about Manakado and later remembers her when he saves her from drowning. She tells Jinta that he is a sacred blood and he tends to attract spirits of all types. She says she will stay by his side and protect him from these spirits as his wife and ends up making him sign the cohabitation contract with a tenure of one year and it states that if any of them were to disregard the contract they were to turn into frogs for 90 days.
