The story revolves around a high school student Hanae Ashiya, who before the beginning of all the strange events in his life was an atheist, did not believe in dark forces and completely denied the existence of any kind of magical creatures.

But it so happened that he had to believe in otherworldly worlds. It all happened on the day when, at the beginning of the school year, Hanae accidentally collided with yokai, a supernatural spirit, firmly attached to the guy.

Ashiya managed to cope with the demon only when he turned for help to the exorcist – Haruitsuki Abeno.
