Manga Box describes the plot as below:

College student Sara Washizuki was shown a mysterious film photograph by paranormal photographer Tousei Ryuuzaki. In it was captured something she had left sealed away with her memories of a particular incident in her elementary school days…


Sara Washizuki: The protagonist of the manga. She is a student of modern architecture and descendant of the shadow priestess. Thus, she can see any kind of spirit without the aid of a camera. Washizuki used to live in a shrine at Mount Kegare when she was a kid, but after a certain incident, she moved to Fujisawa.

Kanon Ohtori: Washizuki's childhood best friend from elementary school.

Beniko Shirazagi: Washizuki's classmate and best friend. Because of her fear of ghosts and after seeing Sara's courage, she is then usually close to her friend.

Tousei Ryuuzaki: A mysterious supernatural photographer. He visits Washizuki in school and weirdly seems to know about her past, amongst other things.

Suisei Koutari: Washizuki's professor. A skeptical man who always try to find the answer for everything through science.

Jun Takakura: Washizuki's junior classmate. A playful boy who attempts to flirt with the other girls sometimes, but is always interrupted by Hazawa.

Midori Hazawa: Washizuki's senior classmate. A high tempered girl who is usually threatening Takakura for his behavior towards girls and other things.

Hatomi (Kumi) Suzumori: Washizuki's junior classmate. A not serious-minded blondie girl, somewhat stereotyped.

Tooru Nue: Washizuki's senior classmate. A creepy, serious and arrogant boy who acts superior to his classmates.

Narumi Amanuma: Washizuki's senior classmate. At first a creepy nerdy girl, most remarkable for her big round glasses.

Chizuru Mizuki: A pale middle school girl who gets on the bus during the students' trip to Mount Kegare.

Sara's grandmother: She lives at the shrine at Mount Kegare and is usually scolding Washizuki because of her duties as a shadow priestess.

Mozu: One of the twins at the shrine in Mount Kegare. She and her sister assist on the duties of the shrine. Her name means shrike.

Tsumugi: One of the twins at the shrine in Mount Kegare. She and her sister assist on the duties of the shrine. Her name means thrush.

Takeru Ugajin: A 29 years old man. He is the leader of the urban explorers group that call themselves "Moebius". The group appears at the Karasawa elementary school for exploration.

Reiji Hotei: A 22 years old man who is part of the Moebius group.

Maya Mikogami: A 18 years old woman who is part of the Moebius group.

Mikiko Hashiki: A 17 years old girl who is part of the Moebius group.
