Black torch

Takaki, Tsuyoshi

Black torch. Volume 1

"Jiro Azuma is descended from a long line of ninja, and he can talk to animals. One day he rescues a unique black cat named Rago, a supernatural being, and is dragged into a mystical war. Although he may appear rough-and-tumble, Jiro Azuma's compassionate side emerges when it comes to the furry critters he can communicate with. But Jiro's soft spot for animals gets him in major trouble when a suspicious stray cat fuses with him, granting him exceptional power but also dragging him into humanity's hidden battle against powerful demons."--
