Yet people whisper about him behind his back. Bojji is able to make his first friend, “Kage” – a literal shadow on the ground who somehow understands Bojji well. (Kage is a survivor of the Kage assassin clan who was practically wiped out. He is no longer an assassin, but needs to steal to make ends meet.) The story follows Bojji’s coming of age when he meets various people in his life, beginning with his fateful encounter with Kage.
