Story Synopsis

...Three friends from university, drunken, decided for a test of courage in the abandoned "haunted" building behind their university. They didn't wish for it, but they encountered a ghost??? Or?...

For the sake of a friend possessed by a ghost, a young college student Ozawa Haruka visits her university's Movie Research Club. Haruka finds inside a young man - Saitou Yakumo, who is believed to have psychic powers. The two of them begin to investigate the weird occurrences that are happening around Haruka's friends together, as Haruka is convinced that Yakumo is just a fake psychic. Will they be able to find the culpit who murdered the person possessing Haruka's friend before he kills all of the friends who visited the abandoned building and Haruka as well? All in all, Haruka finds out that this young man is the real deal! Yakumo's red left eye can see what others cannot - the spirits of the dead. With this power and mostly Yakumo's great people perception they're solving this confusing, un-earthly case.

This case is just the start of the string of incidents happening around them. And Haruka is unlucky enough to get involved and then she always brings new cases to Yakumo, just to his annoyance!
