Sawaka appears to be your total goth girl with her straight black hair, despairing look and scary smile, but really, she's very shy. She wants to make friends but her fellow students believe she's cursed and that to make eye contact with her for more than three seconds is to invite the curse to be transferred to them. They believe she can call ghosts and call her "Sadako", which is the name of a character in a horror movie.

Sawaka tries very hard to be pleasing but her fellow students are just creeped out. Kazahaya is the most outgoing student in class and he realizes that Sawaka is actually a very sweet, albeit shy, girl. He decides to become her friend and Sawaka starts to emerge from her shell and actually make friends.

The story is very cute though sometimes the more 'cartoony' illos of Sawaka are just...creepy. Still, it's an enjoyable read.
