Description: Descendants of Darkness

In matters relating to the world of the dead, there is an institution that judges the sins of the deceased: the Ministry of Hades. The Summons Section of the Judgement Bureau comprises a group supporting the Ministry's operating functions by guiding the lost souls that wander the mortal world. They are also known as the Guardians of Death (or Shinigami).

Asato Tsuzuki is a Guardian of Death; his only problem is that no one wants to work with him. When given a case involving a vampire, Hisoka Kurosaki, an unusually young Guardian with an obscure past, is tricked into working with Tsuzuki. As the two delve deeper into the case, it becomes apparent that someone else is controlling the vampire, Maria Wong. The man controlling Maria is one Kazutaka Muraki, a doctor with a twisted perspective who lets no one get in his way on his quest to find the secret of immortality.

That's not a good thing when Tsuzuki is in the way, and Dr. Muraki kidnaps Hisoka to use as bait for a trap. Things start getting ugly when Hisoka finally remembers that Dr. Muraki is the one who killed him years ago, and now both Tsuzuki and Hisoka are out for revenge.
