Action Visual Novel Nightmare x Onmyoji - Paradox of Forbiddance Now Available for Pre-Order

Nightmare x Onmyoji - Paradox of Forbiddance, Guilty’s urban fantasy visual novel, is now available for pre-order on MangaGamer.

Nightmare x Onmyoji - Paradox of Forbiddance is an urban fantasy visual novel about a group of onmyoji: magicians who use ancient skills and incantations to purge specters, freeing possessed victims. Kuon Katsuragi is an onmyoji in training, working alongside her father on a case of kidnappings that may involve such specters. They aren't the only examples of such exorcists, though.

Setsuna and Yuka Shindo live a double life: they’re sisters of the cloth during the day and exorcists by night. This line of work comes with many horrific dangers, which both sisters have already experienced. In the past, they’ve been captured and forced to give birth to demon spawns. Despite this, they’ve persevered and continued in their line of work, even though Yuka still hasn’t quite recovered from the trauma. The two of them are also aided by their childhood friend, Toma Kitagawa.

When the trio hears news of Kuon's case, they travel to aid her family in pursuing the specters. They form pairs to gather information on the kidnappings but end up ambushed by a mysterious organization. This attack results in the capture of the Shindo sisters, leaving it up to Kuon to save them from their repeated nightmares and resolve the case.

Setsuna Shindo

A 2nd year student and a Sister of the church, who recently transferred to Kuon’s school.

While continuing her apprenticeship as a Sister, she is also an exorcist with skill unparallelled amongst her peers. Belonging to the master class of martial artists, she has diligently trained since childhood. Her demeanor is bright and cheery, and her social nature allows her to open up to just about anyone.

In a previous incident, she and her sister Yuka were forced to give birth to demon children, but with the help of Toma, was able to destroy her captors and return to living a normal life.

Yuka Shindo

A Sister of the church, and the older sister of Setsuna. Along with her church-related duties, she too is an exorcist.

She has a gentle and sweetly encompassing aura, but is also a powerful exorcist. She and Setsuna have received great accolades in the course of their work.

Having once been captured by a mysterious religious cult, she was forced to give birth to the spawn of demons, but after being saved by Setsuna and Toma, she was able to reclaim her normal life. She hasn’t quite recovered from the trauma of the incident, and while currently unable to perform the full duties of an exorcist, she supports Toma and Setsuna to the best of her abilities.

Kuon Katsuragi

A first year student and onmyoji in training.Born into a long line of onmyojis, she trains hard to live up to that legacy. With her mother having passed away when she was just a baby, she and her father live by themselves. As onmyoji, they purge evil specters in battle, utilizing handmade talismans and ancient incantations.

Balancing academic studies and martial arts, she maintains high standards of both body and mind. While she appears calm and composed at all times, she’s actually quite shy and struggles to show her feelings clearly. She shares the housework with her father, but handles nearly all the cooking, as even a saint couldn’t call his cooking acceptable.

Nightmare x Onmyoji - Paradox of Forbiddance is now available for pre-order on MangaGamer for the promotional price of $26.95, where it will later cost $29.95. The visual novel is scheduled to be released on March 23rd.
