Plot Summary: In an alternate version of the Taisho period, yokai not only move among humans, but they can also be enshrined (or trapped) within special books known as kotogatari. Once inside one of these books, they are known as kotogami, and only a reading by a Narrator, a yokai specialist, can free them – and only a skilled Narrator can control them. Akari, a young woman living and working in the Imperial Capital, has no fondness for spirits or stories, but nonetheless finds herself involved with them when a yokai burns down the company dorm she lives in. Taken in by a strangely self-sufficient spirit named Tomohito, Akari finds herself living in a Bookhouse owned by the military, which naturally leads to her involvement in all things kotogami – including the mystery of her own past.
