DDD. Decoration Disorder Disconnection. A set of novels by [[{{Nasuverse}} Kinoko Nasu]] that explores the notion of "DemonicPossession". No direct connections to the rest of the {{Nasuverse}} yet.

In a certain part of Japan, there is a Syndrome. People argue just what this is, but it's the next level beyond "mental illness" and some people even argue that it's DemonicPossession. Some argue it's just a mutation triggered by emotional levels not natural in normally functioning human beings. It's called "Agonist Syndrome;" where the mind shapes the body. And [[BodyHorror since the mind usually isn't healthy...]]

Also, the real demons are a little bit upset by these people stealing their thunder. Well, technically, demons aren't real. Neither are what most Agonists turn into. It takes something unreal to fight something unreal. Confused yet? Yeah, this series will do that.

Arika is a rare [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal Abnormal Agonist Albino]] with one arm who is considered rather harmless. Slightly odd, he'll comment that one should never tell him anything serious during daylight hours, and nothing silly at night. He is employed by rather bizarre and sadistic yet beautiful man-boy named Kirie Karyou, who claims to be a "Demon Master." His only job is to put on and take off Kirie's prosthetic limbs, something for which he is paid 200,000 yen ($1600) a month.

!!These books provide examples of:

* ArtificialLimbs: The prosthetics of Karyou, [[spoiler: which are ''true'' demons. He occasionally loans one out to Arika, whose arm was eaten off by his sister.]]
* BackToFront: The entire first volume.
* BodyHorror: Some Agonists become....nasty looking.
* CognizantLimbs
* DemonSlaying: Arika at night and with the Arm of Hatred.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Karyou Kaie
* {{Expy}}: Karyou is very similar to Merem Solomon of ''{{VisualNovel/Tsukihime}}'' in terms of situation.
* ImAHumanitarian: Several Agonists.
* LemonyNarrator: Arika.
* MythologyGag: Arika mutters to himself that only an idiot burglar would go to the police if they discovered the family they're robbing was murdered. This happened in ''Literature/KaraNoKyoukai''. Arika isn't one for compassion.
* OurDemonsAreDifferent
* PowerBornOfMadness: Agonist Syndrome, all the way.
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: Arika's sister, Kanata, has this. She earns them; as she's one of the most powerful and insane of the Agonists.
