Plot Summary: Takashi Natsume has always had the ability to see and communicate with yokai and demons. When he moves to the small town where his late grandmother once lived, he discovers that she too had strong spiritual powers and that she used them to enslave yokai by recording their names in a book. Now Takashi is beset by spirits—some of them want revenge, some want him to return their names, some want to eat him and some just want his help.
