Huey received a mysterious key after the death of his grandfather. according to his will, Huey must take custody of Dalian, a guardian of the Archives that contained forbidden knowledge in magical books. he met up with Dalian, who appeared as a child who lived in an estate. he agreed to be Dalian's new Keykeeper and investigating incidents that were related to people misusing the power of these magical books. he had to use his power as a Keykeeper to seal the books and restore order.
the anime was unique in way that the success depended fully on the interactions between the 2 main characters. if separated, Huey was just a calm, cool looking gentleman, while Dalian was a rich, spoilt girl. together, their teamwork managed to solve not only the magical books problems but made them sparkled. in some ways, this relationship of theirs reminded me of Spice and Wolf (2008).
