The series is based on the Japanese manga series by Shō Aimoto. It has been serialized in Shueisha's shōnen manga magazine Jump Square since December 2016 and has been collected in eleven tankōbon volumes.
MAL describes the anime as: When a series of animal bodies that rot away after a single night begin appearing in a remote mountain village, Inugami, a detective from Tokyo who specializes in the occult, is called to investigate.
While working the case, he befriends a strange boy who works in the field every day instead of going to school. Shunned by his peers and nicknamed "Dorotabo" after a yokai that lives in the mud, he helps Inugami uncover the truth behind the killings - but supernatural forces are at work, and while Dorotabo is just a nickname, it might not be the only thing about the boy that isn't human.
