[[caption-width-right:300: The two main characters, Miles and Gikaku. Yes, yes, they do look good together.]]
''Owari to Hajimari no Miles'' is one of the more recent works of Creator/MohiroKitoh.
It follows the adventures of Miles, a spirit medium, and Gikaku, a rather light-hearted god of destruction. They live in the Sky Ring (or Orbis Vanus), a large [[FloatingContinent archipelago of floating islands,]] in which objects infused with spirit in the Small World (or Mundus Parvus) incarnate. Miles and other spirit mediums have the responsibility to manage these spirit objects as they go through their life cycle, from the Small World to their machine heaven.
Despite its intriguing premise, the series ended with no plot resolution in 2010. Now that the magazine carrying it has ceased publication, it seems quite unlikely to be continued.
!! This manga provides examples of:
* AnachronismStew: The spirit objects come from all different time periods, though most are from the 20th century.
* BeautifulDreamer: Gikaku deactivated Miles' alarm clock for the sole purpose of this.
* BigEater: Miles
* CoolBoat: Gikaku is the spirit form of the Japanese battleship ''Nagato''.
* CoolPlane: Plenty, as is par for the course in a Kitoh manga.
* CutShort: It abruptly ends in the second volume with no plot resolution
* DirtyCommunists: None actually show up, but it's repeatedly mentioned that the Soviet red star is a "symbol of evil"
* EagleLand: The American spirit who appears late in the manga's run is a clear Type 2.
* FloatingContinent: And even an ocean, though it didn't show up in the manga.
* TheRival: The soft-spoken (but perverted) Kionona.
