14-year old Miharu Rokujou’s body contains the text of the Shinra Bansho…the most powerful of the ninja forbidden arts. Miharu is trying to fight his destiny with apathy, but that tactic is doomed to failure. He’s got to start caring at some point…and what he eventually learns to care about and why forms the emotional heart of the story of Nabari No Ou.
Miharu Rokujou has got:
-a vast supernatural power he hasn’t figured out how to use yet
-huge freaking eyes and an adorable haircut
-a devilish side he uses to great effect and occasional hilarity
-great cooking skills (squeee! future husband material)
Naturally, he spends the story being wanted by everyone for their own purposes, and he has to find out what he really wants amidst all that cross-traffic. Luckily, he manages to mature and grow during the course of the story, which is what we hope for all our young heroes.
