My Daemon tells the story of Kento and Anna, a strange and often dangerous creature called a Daemon that Kento discovers one day. After convincing his mother to keep it, they strike up a strong bond before Anna becomes a target with a huge 100mn yen bounty for its capture. The ensuing threats to Anna’s safety kill Kento’s mother in the process. Kento and Anna go on an adventure to seek out the fabled Daemon that can remind time and save Kento’s mother before finding that they have a lot more in common than previously thought.
