It's a tale of magic and a vengeful goddess who looks after her "children" - from those captured and sold into slavery hundreds of years ago, and others facing a violent death in modern times.
It's definitely not a typical story of heroes - in fact, it's not clear if the power behind the events is benevolent - or malevolent.
The modern story is actually the tougher one to sort out, with numerous characters on both sides of the law, a murder attempt, law enforcement officials with dubious motivations, and a character who won't stay dead.
It's not always easy to sort out, but it's interesting to see a story with a different kind of story to tell - and lots of mysteries to go around.
With strong art and a unique story, it's a series worth watching.
