Takashi Natsume can see the spirits and demons that hide from the rest of humanity. He has always been set apart from other people because of his gift, drifting from relative to relative, never fitting in. Now he is a troubled high school student who has come to live in the small town where his grandmother grew up. There he discovers that he has inherited more than just the Sight from the mysterious Reiko.
When Reiko was Takashi's age, she bound the names of demons and spirits in her "Book of Friends," enslaving them to her capricious whim. Now Takashi is the owner of the book, and the creatures will do anything to get their names back.
Story and art by Yuki Midorikawa.
