Summary and Preview
Hikawa Satsuki has been discarded by his traveling grandfather, who is his only living relative. Now he lives alone in a beautiful mansion, full of thoughts of his own worthlessness. One day, his grandfather sends him a strange book, which he learns is called a Tablet. He opens it, releasing a burst of light, to find that it contains mostly incomplete pictures of the Tarot.
Almost immediately, an angry young English woman called Lady appears, insistent that she is the guardian of the book! She explains that the pictures on the pages are called Tableaux, and that they represent summonable entities of amazing power. The incomplete pictures represent entities that are not successfully trapped in the book. She also angrily explains that the light he saw earlier was him accidentally letting loose one of them into the world! Now Lady has forcibly recruited Satsuki to her service, and the two of them-- plus the remaining Tableaux in the Tablet-- have to collect all of the dangerous freed entities! [tethysdust]
