I HAD SECRET OCS THIS ENTIRE TIME HAHA
They’re part of a Pitch! I mostly developed their quirks in secrecy because…Eh. It was nice to funnel all my focus. The story comes with 6 main characters. All of them are boys, because CUTE BOYS PUNCHING THINGS, jesus everything about this is self-indulgent
In this universe, people develop marks on their wrists during puberty. These marks come in pairs; one for you, and one for your soulmate. Except not everyone develops these marks. Kou Suzuki is one of them.
Kou and Kazuo are the disposable friends you never see after chapter 15 or so of Generic Factory Standard Aggressive Battle Manga Protagonist. However, Kou is approached by a MYSTERIOUS FIGURE who says they can give him an artificial soulmate mark! This, of course, is a blatant lie. They gave him superpowers. Strangely, instead of forming one mark, Kou forms three: a sign of true power that Kou never wanted in the first place.
Apparently the MYSTERIOUS FIGURE wasn’t actually supposed to be dishing out superpower freebies, and Kou must fight off people with the ability to summon strange shikigami and beat the absolute snot out of him in general. There’s also the other boys his age who were approached for the same reason, and would like to find others with new powers…
Each superpowered teenage boy is struggling with the reason for their lack of soulmate mark; their mental illness. They don’t know why it caused the lack of mark formation, and their success in dealing with their individual issues vary, but each of them are determined to define themselves by who they are, not what they’re afflicted with.
Except Kazuo the token neurotypical. He’s just there for Kou. Friendship!
(You do not see Generic Protagonist after chapter 15 or so. Fuck that guy. They were supposed to go out for karaoke last friday, and then he ditched and Kou broke three ribs. What a dick.)
