It's a typical day in the Mano household. Yohko, our 16 year-old heroine wakes up every
morning with a surprise attack by her Grandma, Madoka. Her Mom, Sayoko, can be
found making breakfast as she flirts with her latest boyfriend. We soon find Yohko racing
off to school as Madoka and Sayoko sit around and argue whether young Yohko should
be more permiscuous with boys.
On the way to school, we find out one Yohko is armored with upperclassman Kando,
young Osamu is enamored with Yohko, and Yohko's best friend Chi likes to tease both Yohko and Osamu. At school they all endure their dominatrix headmistress who inflicts fear in all her tardy students, and admire Reika the most beautiful girl in the school. We both find
out later that Reika and the headmistress are servants of the demons and are attempting to
resurrect the queen of evil and bring darkness to the world. [OK, not exactly an original
It does not take long before the demons discover Yohko is family lineage of being the 108th Devil Hunter.
It also does not take them long to learn that Yohko cannot inherit the Devil
Hunter status if she is not a virgin. So...Osamu is hypnotized and attempts to seduce
Yohko, but Madoka intervenes and afterwards tells Yohko the truth about why she has
been studying martial arts since she was a child and has needed to refrain from going too
far with any guy until she has been properly initiated as a Devil Hunter..
Although Yohko wants nothing to do with becoming the 108th Devil Hunter, she soon
finds herself dragged into one big mess as Chi is hypnotized to kill Yohko, Haneda is
prepared for sacrifice, and Madoka appears to have died in combat. Despite the dire
situation that Yohko finds herself immersed in, our heroine always finds a way to save the
day (and Madoka actually lives).
