The horror comedy "that's not scary at all" revolves around Kiitarō, a boy with a strong sixth sense who is always surrounded by demons. He gets talked to by Yuki Onna (snow women), gets his bath licked by Akaname (licking demons), and lives with the Zashikiwarashi Suzu, whom he just can't come to dislike.
