Manga / Monster Soul
Black Airs, baby!

Welcome to Elfenland, a fantasy world where monsters co-exist with humans. However, as you can imagine, tensions on both side flare more often then not, leading into an ongoing battle between the two (Humans are afraid of the monsters preying on them, while the monsters are afraid the humans will hunt them down). Despite this, a group of monsters, The Black Airs, a ragtag bunch said to be the strongest monster force (which include Aki (a werewolf), Touren (a sand golem, half human hybrid), James (a Frankenstein's monster-ish guy), Mamii (mummy) and Joba (a onion looking monster) have made sure both sides are under control and work to find a peaceful solution to the war.
