Romance of the Demon and Sword
Prologue
Romance of the Demon and Sword Event Background

Unidentified Demon Sighting!

A message sends ripples throughout the Bureau of the Occult.

A demon is appearing here, there, and all over the city, muttering curses under its breath as it roams the streets.

Our heroes are hurriedly dispatched from the Bureau of the Occult.

Dubbed a "top secret" mission, they leave with little to go on.

Later they would be joined by Yasutsuna, who offered to help as you grappled with hidden feelings of her own.

Who or what could this mysterious "Noddy" be...?

Hm... What should I do?

Is something bothering you, Mikado?
Sola
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
Maybe we could be of some help.
Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Mikado1
Perhaps you can. Some members of the Bureau are getting married.

And they want me to give a speech. The thing is, I have no idea what to say.

Mikado
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
A wedding, you say. Well, getting married is a major milestone in life, so I can see why you're nervous.

You can't just throw together any old speech.

Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Mikado2
Oh don't you worry about that. I plan to give a speech worthy of our great Bureau.
Mikado
Mikado3
You and Shuten Doji's wedding is going to be—
Mikado
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
Whatever do you mean, "me and Shuten Doji"?!
Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Mikado2
Well, shouldn't I be the one to give a speech at your wedding?
Mikado
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
Yes, but...whoever said we were getting married?!
Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Sola3
Wait...so you two aren't planning on a wedding?!
Sola
Mikado1
Yea, don't you think it's about time?
Mikado
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
Well...I'd be lying if I said it hadn't crossed my mind.
Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Mikado3
Aha! So you ARE thinking about it then.
Mikado
Sola1
What kind of ceremony are you planning?
Sola
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Bride Story Render
Well...we thought a shrine would suit us better than a church.

We don't need so much pomp and flair. Just a gathering of our close friends, and...

You know, something that'll make for a good day for all the guests.

Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Sola4
Whatever you and Shotty decide, I'm sure it'll be a wonderful wedding.
Sola
Sola1
Don't forget to invite us all, okay? It's gonna be a heck of a party!
Sola
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
Thanks...but, I'm sure it's not going to happen anytime soon.

I have no clue if Shuten Doji even wants to get married.

Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Sola1
Personally, I think you two will make the perfect married couple.
Sola
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
If only it were that simple...
Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Mikado1
...Excuse me, I have a call. Who could it be at a time like this?

...Yes, it's me.

Mikado
Mikado6
...I see. I'll send them over right away.
Mikado
Mikado1
Sola, I've got a job for you.

Keep in mind that this is top secret. As in, do not let one word about it slip.

Mikado
Sola3
T-top secret?!

What could be the big deal?

Sola
Mikado6
It doesn't get more top secret than this, put it that way.
Mikado
Mikado2
Anyway, enough pleasantries. Just head over...and make it quick!
Mikado
Mikado3
If you don't then you might find yourself without any vacation time in the foreseeable future.
Mikado
Sola6
Gulp! You know how much I need my vacation time!

Okay, Master! Let's hurry up and get a move on!

Sola

I'll help, too!

This evil energy outbreak came at the worst time. I was really enjoying our chat.
Sola
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
But you know how evil brutes are. They always pop up when you least expect them.
Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Sola6
You can say that again.
Sola
Sola1
I just wanted to hear more about these wedding plans of yours!

You looked so happy talking about it!

Sola
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
I did NOT!
Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Sola1
But you did! I saw you smiling.
Sola
Sola4
And it made me realize how much you love Shotty!
Sola
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
Let's d-drop the small talk and focus on defeating these evil brutes!
Dojigiri Yasutsuna

Tsuna...? Don't tell me you're embarrassed to talk about it!
Sola
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
I'm n-not embarrassed! And that is ENOUGH already!

We're almost to the site of the outbreak.

According to Mikado, there's an evil brute that looks like a demon of some sort...

That's an evil brute that looks like a demon alright, only Mikado failed to tell us it's missing a body!

Looks like we're facing...Noddy himself!

Sola
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
...Noddy?
Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Sola1
Yep, that's its official name. I came up with it just now!
Sola
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
I guess that kinda makes sense...
Dojigiri Yasutsuna

That's enough, Noddy! Now that we're here your playtime is over!

Noddy

...Is he a friend of yours, Tsuna?
Sola
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
Of course not! This is the first time I've ever laid eyes on him.
Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Noddy Story Render
Yasutsuna, how could you forget me?
Noddy
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
Stay away from me!
Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Noddy Story Render
Yasutsuna! What are you saying? It's me...!
Noddy
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
Like hell I know you!
Dojigiri Yasutsuna

What's wrong, Yasutsuna? What did I do to deserve this?
Noddy

I TOLD you I have no idea who you are!
Dojigiri Yasutsuna

What the heck is going on?
Sola
Noddy Story Render
Yasutsuna!
Noddy
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
Don't come any closer!
Dojigiri Yasutsuna

I'm not sure what's going on, but this isn't going to end well for Tsuna.

Master, we have to defeat that thing!

Why do you keep rejecting me, Yasutsuna?
Noddy
Sola6
Noddy seems seriously depressed.

Are you sure you haven't met before, Tsuna?

Sola
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
I'm sure! You think I'd forget meeting a demon like that?
Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Sola1
Then why does he keep on—
Sola
Chessa Dowry Story Render
What is that bittersweet smell I sense upon the air?

I know...it's the smell of love!

Chessa Dowry
Sola3
W-Woah!
Sola
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
Who the hell are you?
Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Chessa Dowry Story Render
I'm Chessa Dowry. I'm the spirit of dowry chests—but you probably guessed as much from my name!

I sensed love in the air so I followed its scent till here.

Chessa Dowry
Sola6
I don't know what you sensed, but there's no love in the air around here!
Sola
Chessa Dowry Story Render
Hm, that's weird. Maybe my senses are off...
Chessa Dowry
Noddy Story Render
Not another one stopping me from getting to my Yasutsuna.

I won't let anyone come between me and my love!

Noddy
Sola3
Come between you? Maybe that's what you were sensing, Chessa!
Sola
Noddy Story Render
Don't let them deceive you, Yasutsuna!

I am the only one who can make you happy!

Noddy
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
What are you even talking about?!
Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Chessa Dowry Story Render
I guess my senses were right after all.
Chessa Dowry
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
You call this love?!
Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Chessa Dowry Story Render
I sensed love coming from that evil brute.

And it's pretty obvious who he's in love with, isn't it?

Chessa Dowry
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
ME?! Are you serious?
Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Sola3
B-but Tsuna made it very clear that she doesn't even know that evil brute.
Sola
Noddy Story Render
Enough talk. Quit trying to come between me and my sweet!
Noddy
Sola3
Yikes! He's gearing up to fight us again!
Sola

We've gotta fend him off, Master!

Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
This evil brute sure is strong. We're barely holding our own, even with <insert name here> on our side.
Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Noddy Story Render
Why do you insist on coming between us?!

After I finally find someone special, you just have to go and ruin it, don't you!

Noddy
Sola2
Why are you so bent on being with Yasutsuna anyway?
Sola
Noddy Story Render
Isn't it obvious?

Because I love her!

Noddy

Noddy Story Render
I can make you so happy, Yasutsuna!
Noddy
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
Stop repeating that, it's freaking me out!

How exactly do you think you're gonna make me happy, anyway?!

Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Noddy Story Render
Simple!

People who are in love can make each other happy just by being together!

Noddy
Sola6
Oh give me a break!
Sola
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
I don't even know you, and you think we love each other?
Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Chessa Dowry Story Render
Love can be very irrational sometimes, you know.
Chessa Dowry
Sola6
Zip it, lady. Now's not the time.
Sola
Noddy Story Render
For your happiness...

I would sacrifice anything!

Noddy
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
Listen, Noddy... You could never make me happy. Ever.
Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Noddy Story Render
Why, Yasutsuna? Why would you say that?

Can't you see how much I love you?!

Noddy
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
Sorry, but there's just one problem...

I'm seeing someone else.

There's no way I'd give him up for you.

Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Noddy Story Render
This doesn't make sense... You should be falling head over heels for me.
Noddy
Sola7
Poor Noddy...
Sola
Noddy Story Render
I can't believe it. You must have undergone involuntary brainwashing!
Noddy
Sola6
...Huh?
Sola
Noddy Story Render
My only choice is to claim you against your will!
Noddy

Woah, buddy! You jumped the shark pretty quickly, didn't you?
Sola

Enough talk! Prepare to be carried off to romantic paradise!

Oh, to be in love.

Chapter 1
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
I've never even laid eyes on Noddy before and he wants to kidnap me! What gives?
Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Sola2
This evil brute must have been created by someone who has really strong feelings for you.

What other explanation is there?

Sola
Chessa Dowry Story Render
Well what stronger feelings are there, than LOVE!
Chessa Dowry
Sola6
Oh, that kinda makes sense now.
Sola
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
B-but whose love could it be?

I can't think of anyone who likes me THAT much...

W-wait, you don't think... N-no, it can't be.

Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Sola1
Is this evil brute a manifestation of Shotty's feelings for you?
Sola
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
What?! You can't be serious.

There's no way Noddy could have originated from Shuten Doji!

Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Sola1
He does love you, so it's not a totally crazy notion.

And it would explain why he's more than a match for Master in battle.

I don't know anyone else who could give Master a run for his money like that!

Sola
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
B-but...I didn't even know Shuten Doji was harboring such strong feelings for me.
Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Chessa Dowry Story Render
Well, you know how it is. It takes courage to admit your true love for someone.
Chessa Dowry
Noddy Story Render
Yasutsuna! We were meant to spend our lives together! Only I can make you happy!
Noddy

Well, I guess not EVERYONE is so shy about it...

Ah, Sola! You look a bit frantic.
Shuten Doji
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
For crying out loud! It's all your fault!
Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Sola1
Um, yeah. About that...
Sola
...
Shuten Doji Story Render
I see... So you think I may have created this evil brute?
Shuten Doji
Sola1
Well if it wasn't then who?
Sola
Shuten Doji Story Render
...Okay, I admit it. It was me.
Shuten Doji
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
I knew it!
Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Shuten Doji Story Render
Stay calm. I will take full responsibility for this, and I will eliminate that monster myself.
Shuten Doji
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
...But Noddy is a formidable opponent. Even you'd have trouble with him in a one-on-one battle.
Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Sola1
In that case... we should consider a sneak attack!
Sola
Shuten Doji Story Render
An ambush. Interesting idea.
Shuten Doji
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
Do you have a plan, Sola?
Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Sola1
Well, we're assuming Noddy was created from Shotty's emotions, right?

Then getting Noddy his emotional fulfillment should make cleaning him a cinch!

Sola
Shuten Doji Story Render
And how do you propose we do that?
Shuten Doji
Chessa Dowry Story Render
Well, when it comes to matters of the heart, there's truly only one way to satisfy that which it hungers for!

...Marriage!

Chessa Dowry
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
M-marriage?!
Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Sola1
Okay then. It's settled.
Sola

Time to plan a wedding!
Sola
Shuten Doji Story Render
*Gulp* W-Wait a minute, guys...I...
Shuten Doji
Chessa Dowry Story Render
Don't worry, I'm an expert when it comes to weddings. You'll be fine!
Chessa Dowry

We'll make sure it's an absolutely splendid wedding!
Sola
Noddy Story Render
I object to this marriage!
Noddy

He's been following us this whole time? We've gotta fight him off, Master!

Marriage? A wedding? Doesn't a girl get time to consider these things?

Chapter 1
Shuten Doji Story Render
This brute...really is strong!

Now it makes sense... I was surprised <insert name here> couldn't defeat him, but now I see why.

This is one case where a direct attack will have little effect.

Shuten Doji
Sola1
So...does that mean you'll consider my backup plan and get married?
Sola
Shuten Doji Story Render
I suppose so. However...
Shuten Doji
Chessa Dowry Story Render
I'll do anything I can to make sure it's a great wedding!

If you need anything, <insert name here>, just ask, okay?

Chessa Dowry
Sola1
You got it, Wedding Planner Chessa!

Let's make sure their wedding is a whopping success!

What do you mean?
Sola
Shuten Doji Story Render
You know...like getting the approval of the parents, for example.
Shuten Doji
Chessa Dowry Story Render
Oh, please! Parents have nothing to do with their children's love lives!

The only thing that matters is the power of your love!

Chessa Dowry
Shuten Doji Story Render
Don't be so rash.

Marriage is an important turning point in one's life... You can't just rush into it on a whim.

Shuten Doji
Torakuma Doji Story Render
You're not getting cold feet, are you?
Torakuma Doji
Shuten Doji Story Render
Torakuma! What are you doing here? ...And how did you know about the wedding?!
Shuten Doji
Torakuma Doji Story Render
Apparently Yasutsuna was telling Mikado all about it this morning.

You know, that it should be at a shrine instead of a church. Stuff like that!

So I thought to myself, "They're finally getting married!" And then I realized I should come offer my congratulations!

Torakuma Doji
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
You idiot! I was speaking hypothetically!
Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Torakuma Doji Story Render
Oh. I got the impression you were all set to go.

So I went around asking everyone if we could throw a surprise party for you two to celebrate.

Torakuma Doji
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
Y-you did WHAT?!
Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Shuten Doji Story Render
Do you mean to say everyone at the Bureau of the Occult thinks we're getting married?
Shuten Doji
Torakuma Doji Story Render
Well, not everyone...but you know how word spreads fast.
Torakuma Doji
Shuten Doji Story Render
I haven't even discussed it with her father yet...
Shuten Doji
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
Why do you keep insisting on that?
Dojigiri Yasutsuna
Chessa Dowry Story Render
Never mind that! You're perfect for each other.

And once you're married, you'll make a great husband and wife!

Chessa Dowry
Torakuma Doji Story Render
I think so, too! You'll make each other SO hap—
Torakuma Doji
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
You're completely missing the point!

And we believe that if we were to get married the evil entity would vanish.

I'm begging you, sir. Please, give us your—

Shuten Doji

The only important thing is how they feel about each other!

That much I can agree with. And if this was a REAL marriage proposal, then I'd have no problem with it.
Ohara Yasutsuna
Sola1
Tell him how you really feel, you two!
Sola
Dojigiri Yasutsuna Story Render
I...guess that wouldn't be so hard.

It's not like I wasn't already considering marriage before Noddy showed up...

But enough about me! Ask Shuten Doji to talk about how he feels!

Certainly. I'm an open book when it comes to my feelings. I have no problem at all talking about them. But, um...
Shuten Doji

But what...?

It's no use. He's never going to give us his blessing anyway.

Yes, it looks like a specialty store for spirits.
