When Machika takes up her grandfather's legacy as [[BountyHunter Zol the Grim Reaper]], she swears to take down the one bounty he couldn't: The [[{{Immortality}} immortal]] Methuselah. Upon finding him, she discovers the first of many problems with immortality: namely, such bounties are somewhat hard to cash in. Rather than let that stop her, she decides to follow Methuselah until she's able to achieve her goal. Methuselah, or Rain as he calls himself, appears at first to be nothing more than a clueless trouble magnet who can't play the broken violin he carries and thinks that letting himself get arrested is a valid form of transportation. But as time passes, and Machika finds herself drawn to Rain for more reasons than her grandfather's honor, the pair is caught up in a dangerous fight with a mysterious group looking for military technology long lost, and for creatures called Angels that Rain somehow knows how to kill. And she learns that Rain isn't just wandering the earth - he's waiting for something. Or someone.

* BlessedWithSuck: Aside from Rain's desire to just [[IJustWantToBeNormal be human again]], the immortality and [[SuperStrength accompanying]] [[NighInvulnerable powers]] he's gained are just not worth everything else he's lost.

But how do they land? Or at least why isnt Machika squished? Must be the power of LOVE. Part of a larger NotTheFallThatKillsYou recurring trope in this work.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic Lord, where to begin. Rain wears a priests uniform, the immortal monsters that show up are referred to as angels, the metal plaque on Rain's chest is cross-shaped, Rain stabs an angel in the chest in the first volume with a cross-shaped branch, the way [[spoiler: Freya]]'s body is hung... I could go on.
** Also, the drug used to suppress angel blood is called ichor.

* HotShoujoDad: Zol is a Hot Shoujo ''grandfather''. Kinda makes you wonder.
** It's explained in a side chapter that [[spoiler:Zol isn't biologically related to Machika. He had a sweet but strained relationship with Machika's mother, Kona, a former prostitute who was pregnant with a client's child. After her death, he ended up with the baby. Since he was uncomfortable with Machika calling him "father" (since his relationship with Kona hadn't gone that far) it ended up "grandfather."]]
** Also, in flashbacks, Yuca seems to enjoy suddenly appearing next to Rain or randomly stroking his face while talking to him. Admittedly, he does this to multiple characters, at least two of whom are female, but still.

** Also, Folk. His description of how he made one of the angels in Volume 6 is a hit of NightmareFuel liberally spiced with FetusTerrible. Our first introduction to him gives us this little gem:
