The In/Spectre manga series written by Kyo Shirodaira and illustrated by Hiro Kyohara began in 2011 on Kodansha's Kodansha Novels imprint. When the imprint changed its name to Kodansha Taiga, the illustrations was then handled by Chasiba Katase.
The series also inspired a manga adaptation with art by Katase which has been serialized since April 2015 in Kodansha's shōnen manga magazine Shōnen Magazine R and since December 2019, also in Monthly Shōnen Magazine. It has been collected in eleven tankōbon volumes.
The series was adapted into a television series by animation studio Brain's Base which aired from January 11 to March 28, 2020.
Synopsis from Wiki:
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.
