Traveling through war-torn feudal Japan, Yuta must decide the fate of another unusual kind of immortal. Mana meets one of the Yuta's former lovers, who has became deranged with bitterness. And together, Yuta and Mana discover that evil lurks behind the most innocent of faces.... This volume contains the series “Mermaid's Dream,” “Mermaid's Promise,” and “Mermaid's Scar.” 208 pp.
