The Dark Myth

  • User


DARK MYTH is the twisted tale of Takahashi, a young innocent who is persecuted by the evil, powerful Kikuchi clan because he bears the "mark of the serpent". Haunted by the murder of his father ten years earlier, Takahashi finds himself embroiled in an ancient scheme when the Kikuchi clan, direct descendants of the five original families of Japan, identify him as the man sent to destroy them.
