    Summary

    In the second loop, after what Michael had done, Satan didn't care about anything but finding Akira, chasing a fuzzy memory of a name and a face. He would do anything to see him again, anything, even bring himself to the Daimyo's palace to die. If he had to be tortured, so be it, if he had to sacrifice, so be it. He'd bow to the torii and hear Tsukuyomi and Shikyou out, he'd let the demons do as they pleased, he'd even beg for help.

    But his actions affect Akira, as well.

    There she meets a cold captain, a crazy world, and secrets about herself she never could have imagined.
    Her task? Save those who she cares about. Problems? Too many.
    Having knowledge of the future can be both a blessing and a curse, something that she will learn all too well.

    Summary

    Yoo Jeongyeon, a college professor, who is living far away from her homeland for 10 whole years, decided to return to South Korea after being convinced by her sister—Jihyo.

    In the eyes of humans, Jeongyeon is an independent college professor majoring History and Arts, and someone people can get along with and someone versatile. But behind her innocent and genteel appearance, she is far beyond human. She is known by many other mythical and mystical creatures as the Sea Serpent who devours moons (in the past). She is the infamous Bakunawa or the Moon-eating Dragon in the Philippine mythology.

    She lived her life searching for answers about her gift, and searching for the person who she loves to end the gift that was bestowed upon her. She traveled the world to search the answers of her questions—but failed. She hoped that going back to Korea will answer things. But it won’t be that easy. Secrets and mysteries began to unfold during her search for the Serpents bride, and danger will interfere as well.

    Come and join Jeongyeon’s journey to her happy ending.
