Starts off with our SPR crew, Meaning Mai and Naru (with Lin-san lurking around somewhere, probably) sitting in the office on a boring old Sunday. Monk-san comes in to spice things up, where we learn that he’s in a back-up band and a studio musician as well as a monk. Lordy, that’s awesome. Anyway, Monk-san asks them for their expertise on a case where a desk in a school is cursed. Anyone that sits in it gets caught in a train door and dragged along.

…LOL. I know, that’d be…unfortunate and painful in real life, but for now it’s pretty funny.

SPR IS ON THE CASE! After talking the to Principal and a large handful of students, the SPR become seriously concerned about this case. So they call in Ayako, Masako, and John as well to help them out. A student tells them a girl with ESP that is able to bend objects so they go to the Biology club. This is where we meet two important players in the case Kansai, the girl with ESP, and Kei Ubusuna, the Biology teacher.


To earn Kansai’s trust, Naru shows her that he can also bend things. Apparently it’s a secret as he tells Mai to not mention it to anyone.  Mai and Naru are later left alone in a room, suddenly a spirit begins to materialize from the ceiling. Luckily, Monk-san comes in a sucessfully wards it off. But it definitely looked at Naru with a killing intent.

Later Naru realizes this is a case of a Zuso, a person who uses spells to curse others. Now, who could be doing that? Definitely not Kansai, Mai’s intuition is sure of that. The then go on a Hitogata hunt. A hitogata is like a voodoo doll with the victims name on it, it causes a spirt to go after said person.  Then find them in almost every place of the incidents.


Mai, being similar to every anime girl ever, trips and falls into a sewer hole. Naru quickly grabs her before she falls, but a spirit pulls her and Naru down there. Turns out Naru is a magician, doing coin tricks to amuse Mai. They are interrupted when the spirit stalking Naru returns, but this time Lin-san shows up. Turns out there were quite a few Hitogata in that hole. Ones for Naru and Mai too.

Naru faints, but when he comes to he’s solved the mystery. The caster, as it turns out, was not Kansai, but the biology teacher Kei Ubusuna. Turns out shejust wanted to protect Kansai’s ESP from people that’ll say she was cheating. There’s a big long spiel about it, but it’s too…complex to put into words. Go read the volume?
