Otome Y?kai Zakuro was an adventure manga set in an alternative timeline focusing on post World War II Japan, and its subsequent westernization. In this world, humans and spirits live together. A group, the Ministry of Spirits, forms to work as a go-between for these two groups. The main plot focuses on the adventures of several human lieutenants, Kei Agemaki, Riken Yoshinokazura, and Ganryu Hanakiri. They are chosen as the human representatives to the spiritual realm, and partner up with spirit representatives Zakuro, Susukihotaru, Bonbori, and Hozuki. The plot revolves around the conflict between the representatives, and the xenophobia that breaks out on both sides. Otome Y?kai Zakuro explores ideas of peaceful co-existence, racism, total war, and many other serious, topical themes. However, it keeps a lighthearted, action oriented style, designed to appeal to a wide variety of anime and manga fans.
