Hitsugi no Chaika is starring Toru Acura, a soldier retired 20 years dedicated to wander aimlessly now that the war is over. One day he meets Chaika Trabant, a magician of 14 who always carries a coffin and you choose to continue to try to make sense of his life again. Both travel with Akari, Toru adopted sister and the only one working, hence the source of income for Toru.
