A heartwarming anime of a girl who can sense ghosts and is kind to both humans and ghosts.


Hibiki Amami, a high school student, is a girl that can sense ghosts. Lots of ghosts are always around her as she treats ghosts and humans equally. Just by Hibiki being there, a boring school suddenly turns into a haunted mansion? But, humans aren't taking a loss there. The friends around Hibiki are all so amusing with a quirk or two. Surrounded by people and ghosts like that, sometimes she runs around in confusion, but for Hibiki everything is cherished and irreplaceable.

This is about an ordinary girl who can find ghost anywhere and the kind people surrounding them.

A story of bonding that is fun, heartwarming, and just a tad lonely.


Hibiki Amami
VA:Ibuki Kido

Mannered, pure, modest, and slightly airheaded. Even though she can sense ghosts, she always worries more about those around her than about herself. A very traditional Japanese girl that is hard to come by nowadays.

Narumi Inoue
VA: Miku Itōh

Hibiki's classmate. Hates ghosts and horror stories, and goes against Hibiki often. Loves her grandma.

Kana Uehara
VA:Riho Iida

Her hobby is to write a blog. Very curious, and shows interest in Hibiki's ability to sense ghosts. She uploads pictures that have supernatural beings in them, and has reached #1 in the occult blog rankings in the past.

Kyoko Esumi

Childhood friend of Kana. Used to be naughty so has somewhat of a temper. At heart, she is very warm-hearted person that can't leave someone in trouble alone.

Makoto Ogawa
VA:Erii Yamazaki

A cheerful, merry person with nothing to hide. Slightly airheaded. You'd think a fair maiden, but...
