Also Called:Malevolent Spirits: Mononogatari | もののがたり
Released on year:2012
Saenome, a group of skilled individuals, possess the crucial task of taming and containing mischievous spirits known as tsukumogami that inhabit objects, posing a grave threat to our society's harmony. These spirits, while typically harmless, require Saenome's intervention and adept negotiation. One fateful encounter with a malevolent spirit has left Hyouma Kunato scarred, haunted by the horrors he witnessed. Struggling with traumatic memories, Hyouma, driven by his unwavering determination, refuses to rely solely on peaceful methods to deal with tsukumogami. Instead, he fearlessly engages in intense physical confrontations with every spirit who crosses his path. However, Hyouma's unconventional approach is met with disapproval from his grandfather, Zouhei, who happens to hold great influence within their clan. To cure Hyouma from his reckless ways and mould him into a worthy successor, Zouhei proposes an unexpected solution: Hyouma must reside with Botan Nagatsuki, a young woman belonging to a peculiar family populated by no less than six tsukumogami. Failure to comply would result in Hyouma's unfortunate excommunication. Fuelled by his indomitable thirst for vengeance against the spirit that tore his life apart, Hyouma reluctantly accepts Zouhei's proposition. Now, embarking on a treacherous journey, Hyouma finds himself compelled to earn the trust of Botan and conquer the profound animosity he holds towards her enigmatic family. But, as sinister groups of nefarious spirits emerge, threatening to disrupt the delicate balance between realms, Hyouma's courage and resilience will be put to the ultimate test. Can he overcome his inner demons and unite with Botan to combat this growing darkness?
