Welcome to the March Story WikiEdit
March Story is a manga based in a European setting. It follows March, a young girl who has been possessed by an Ill. "You must NEVER touch something if you don't know what it is" is repeated througout the series by March, a warning regarding the Ill. An Ill Is a being that inhabits any small trinket that attracts human eyes (such as an earring or a muffin), supposedly created by human emotions; when said human makes physical contact with the object, the Ill possesses the body and swallows the heart, making the human a puppet to their whims. Once the Ill kills the human's mind in the body, a contract is signed and they can never be separated. However, there exists one order of being that can defeat the Ill, known as the Ciste Vihad: humans that have overpowered their Ills, heralded only by horns, a by-product of the powers that the Ills give their hosts. They remain clear until the first killing, after which they become stained red.
Athough not all Ill have the intention of killing, most still cause problems for the humans around them, whether conscious of it or not. However, some develop strong bonds between humans, and develop deep emotional attachments to them. In these cases, there is most often a background story involving the human possessed by the Ill and the person they have bonded with.
