I've got two queries and I'm trying to decide which one to run with. The second half summaries are similar, but each showcases difference aspects in the opening.
Which one is best? Let me know in the comments!
When Chirikai’s father has affair with the Sun Goddess, his heartbroken mother leaves home to commit suicide.
With shapeshifting fox demons, like Chirikai and his parents, romance always ends in tragedy, but he rushes after his mother to the human capital.
He’s too late.
Princess Asuka saves Chirikai in the aftermath of his mother’s death. In return, Chirikai agrees to help Asuka avenge her fiancé’s murder and save the capital from a plague god.
Their journey begins in the schemes of the capital, with gold leaf screens, and secretive shamans struggling to bend the gods to their will. They travel to the ghost-infested mountains, and they will have to elude bear-riding warriors and a god of illusion—Chirikai’s deadly father. A plague sweeps across the land, begun by the mysterious new deity.
But as the danger mounts around them, Asuka and Chirikai realize that their obsession with revenge has turned into passion for each other. And for Chirikai, saving Asuka and the humans might require letting go of everything he once cherished: his parents.
