Table of Contents


Kureno Sakamoto; a brash, somewhat cynical 16 year old in high-school lives a very ordinary yet eventful life in the breezy seaside Japanese city of Ikabana.

Living alone in a spacious apartment given to him by his rich but jovial fellow of an uncle and growing up an orphan because of his family's broken past – to which his uncle has no apparent clue about – Kureno has learned to tend to himself without the aid of anyone else, with the exception of his uncle Kaien, who regularly grants him his undying (albeit forced) financial support.

Almost never thinking of the past or looking back at it as he has taught himself, Kureno always thought things would go smoothly as long as he went by the rules he laid out for himself. But as fate has it, an enigmatic group of individuals enter his life with the underlying intention of revealing his muddled past, for reasons yet unknown to him.

As he goes deeper into the vast history of his bloodline, he discovers and unlocks his inherent abilities that laid dormant within... as well as bloodied secrets of the past that he was never meant to know about.

In the world of Grimoire Red, our first story begins with Kureno's Journey. Read Chapter
