In/Spectre (Japanese: 虚構推理, Romaji: Kyokō Suiri) is a 2011 Japanese light novel series published by Kodansha, written by Kyo Shirodaira, and illustrated by Hiro Kyohara and Chasiba Katase.
A manga adaptation with art by Chasiba Katase has been serialized since April 2015 in Kodansha's shōnen manga magazine Shōnen Magazine R and since December 2019, also in Monthly Shōnen Magazine. The manga is published in North America by Kodansha Comics.
Season 1 of the TV anime adaptation by Brain's Base aired between January and March 2020.
While struggling to get past a break-up with his girlfriend, Kuro Sakuragawa was approached by Kotoko Iwanaga, a girl who declared that she was in love with Kuro since she met him two years ago. She then tells him that she is a sort of Goddess of Wisdom where she serves as the intermediary between the real world and the supernatural world. Kuro, of course, doubts her at first but after fighting a yōkai in a library and revealing to each other their true identities (Kuro is actually a monster that has eaten two different yōkai meats giving him the powers of immortality and near-absolute precognition), Kuro agrees to help Kotoko on her various adventures as the peace-keeping Goddess of Wisdom.
