Themes: art, school
Plot Summary: Hikari Hamura is a young man with big dreams for himself and his abilities as an artist, even at the jeers of his classmates. His only real friend and supporter is classmate Chiaki Yamamoto whose interest lies in the psychological. One of their daily visits to a nearby river ends in tragedy when an out of control helicopter kills them both, and yet Chiaki's final prayers were heard, and the two are granted a second chance at life. Hikari now needs to help those around him or else his body will rot and decay back to its state when he was killed. Chiaki on the other hand has been revived as a small angel-winged figure to help her friend on their new quest to unravel the greatest mysteries of all – the teenage mind. Now able to see dark auras of those in need of intervention, Hikari's drawings manifest the inner-self of his 'patients' and it's up to him and Chiaki to decipher them before they're too far-gone to be saved.
