When a series of animal bodies that rot away after a single night begin appearing in a remote mountain village, Inugami, a detective from Tokyo who specializes in the occult, is called to investigate.

While working the case, he befriends a strange boy who works in the field every day instead of going to school. Shunned by his peers and nicknamed "Dorotabo" after a yokai that lives in the mud, he helps Inugami uncover the truth behind the killings - but supernatural forces are at work, and while Dorotabo is just a nickname, it might not be the only thing about the boy that isn't human.

I'm so confused. Who's side is he on? He's awful when working against Kabane and co, but what's he doing now? Asking for help? Sure, Inugami's usually pretty chill, but you think he'd be a little worried. Is Nobimaru a spy? What the hell is going on?
The cursed tag in a shonen, don't really wanna start it

the actual spoilers (fox side only)

About ch48 (comes out Nov 4th)

Probably the best shounen I've read in a while.

Probably even better than alot of the mainstream shounen out there. It's very consistent and very interesting, there's great characters and their good respective character developments. My favourite is probably Nobimaru though.

And it's gonna get an Anime Adaptation! The current team working on it is pretty impressive, not to mention the seiyuus voicing the characters. Super excited on that note!

And about the opinions about mc squad's apathy towards the farm:
Come for the action, stay for the Kon.

Mod Note: Please use spoiler tags when talking about chapter-specific or future events.

the description kinda turned me off for a while but i finally decided to read and it's really good.
I found this manga by a chance.. its a good series, i like the dynamic characters and stuff... worth to read
So I binged this, and recent developments are awful. Spoilers up to chapter 44.

So basically the cast is behaving in ways that make them appear both very callous and very stupid.
The gang certainly have never been saints, but this is just nonsensical apathy towards things they ought to care about at least a little bit.

Just a few gripes of mine.
Basically humans in this manga are cannon fodder and don't have any ability to protect themselves, they're just food for the Kemono.
Kemono are basically the only ones who have the right to live apparently and can go unpunished even if they hurt or kill humans.

I was just about to go full Karen on your ass for listing names of mangas I like a lot, but to each their own, I guess.
@migh : about the $exual violence , IIRC , it happens to at least 3 peoples , or maybe a dozen of peoples . some is showed on-screen , some is off-screen .

but anyway , this manga 's art is very good , its plot is also good . this manga is more better than some trashes from shonen jump aka shonen dump , like :

- one piece ... of fece , aka none piece .

- hungry marie .

- black clover .

- naruto aka narutard .

- boruto aka borutard .

- samurai 8 .

- assassin classroom , aka a$$ cla$$ .

- im from japan .

- hinomaru sumo .

- teenage renaissance .

- world trigger .

- haikyu .

- psi-nan .

- shokugeki soma .

- rurouni kenshin .

- bleach .

- gintama .

- sket dance .

- my ZERO academia .

- the promised neverland .

- nisekoi .

- death note .
Friggin Inari's fox form...
Not bad at all. Very slight BL undertone.
@daywithoutgames errr... Have you heard ayumu voices? He sounds like a girl (And look like one. LoL). His voice range's sooo wide. He could be that magical girl or volleyball maniac boy. Murase Ayumu was the best choice for Akira. Guess he will voiced the older brother too.

@migh ooh, you'll be surprised. (Since i did). Not the main chara, but someone important for the team. I mean...Yeah... Its big event that move the story,a lot of it but in subtle way. Just read it. No regrets.
an edgy shonen with sexual violence tag ? thats a first.

is it recurrent or just a small event ? and is it on a main character ?
My theory is that nobimaru is actually kon's brother and he acts like he hates her bc she's the only one forgetting abt what happened to their mother and on top of that idolizing inari.
this is so good, this series is fascinating and i feel like it plays a good balance of mature and innocent(? idk the right word). like you learn some shite in there and ur like, man, thats facked up. but then like also he befriends a lot of people. though its not quite talk-no-jutsu... and its not like the people that like him go on his side all the time. but i mean it strikes a fascinating balance that ive never personally seen executed quite this well. most under this genre tends to weigh either on the innocent or the mature side, or do somewhat of a switch in between. Id but naruto way to the edge of innocent and like attack on titan on mature. Demon slayer is balanced leaning more toward mature, while my hero academia is more toward innocent. not saying thats bad because really it depends on what the author wants. This series however strikes a good mid ground. I quite enjoy it, and i really recommend it to others who may be thinking about reading it!!
