When Hugh Anthony Disward inherits an old mansion and a personal library from his grandfather he meets a mysterious girl, Dalian, in the basement of the old property. She is a Dantalian and a gateway to "Dantalian's bookshelf," which stores the prohibited books of the demons. "Gensho (Illusory Books)," the prohibited books, endanger the balance of the world, but people are fascinated by the taboo. Forming a close friendship, Hugh and Dalian solve the cases involving Gensho with their ability to access the Dantalian bookshelf.
