My library had the first three of this manga so I figured, ‘why not?’ Yokai are spirits and Kotoko is a teenaged girl who comes from a long lineage of exorcists.

Kotoko Kasuga has been able to see youkai since she can remember, because she is the grandchild of a youkai exorcist!

I am a fan of yokai and saw this manga had been translated into English, so I wanted to see what the Japanese was like. Sweet story and interesting character development.
read for fun; clearing off the manga-to-be-read shelf
