On the outside, Kosuke Mikado is an ordinary and shy bookstore clerk but he actually has the ability to see ghosts and spirits. Since he was a child, Mikado has always disliked this ability since everything he sees terrifies him. One day, he meets a fearless exorcist, named Rihito Hiyakawa, with strong supernatural powers but a weak sense of social boundaries. The two team up and work together to solve bizarre supernatural incidents. Their work practices are not exactly "safe for work". As the pair continue their investigations, Mikado begins to suspect that Hiyakawa hides a dark secret.
