There are two sides to every coin…light vs. dark, good vs. evil, love vs. hate. Sometimes the line between the two grows thin…and it’s so, so easy to cross. So it’s no surprise that Fudo Aikawa, A.K.A.

But when opposites like these attract, there’s more than a few obstacles to their love…! What’s a pair like this to do?
