“Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, Shubert, Liszt and Tchaikovsky as a group of good-looking demon hunters? Say no more,” said Seven Seas production manager Lissa Pattillo. “The art is great, the characters are fun, and the story about a group of powerful exorcists based on famous musical composers is irresistible.”
Plot concept: High school student Takeru Sumura has a dark secret: his parents were murdered by demons. Consumed by vengeance, Takeru seeks out the famed demon hunter, Ludwig van Beethoven. Beethoven is a “magia,” a wizard who wields the power of music to battle demons. Taken under Beethoven’s wing, Takeru joins the ranks of other renowned magia: Bach, Mozart, Shubert, Liszt and Tchaikovsky. This unique team of demon hunters will use their music-based magic to combat the world’s demons. Now all Takeru needs to do is figure out how to convince Beethoven to upgrade him from his personal cleaning boy to a full-fledged apprentice!
