Strange things are happening around the town of Suiten. The daughter of a priest begins to see strange visions, spirits have started to roam the mountains, and Tarou Komori is having unsettling dreams. Due to the trauma of being kidnapped 11 years ago, he has repressed most of the memories that could shed light on what really happened all those years ago. But they return in his sleep, combined with encounters beyond the realm of dreams.

As the supernatural and psychological collide, three children struggle to face their demons and repair the breach between the spiritual and corporeal worlds.

They jump around a lot and the only thing I really got was that Taro was ...

I just finished watching this anime and it wasn't good. It leaves the audience feeling incomplete as there are a lot of questions left unanswered, and also with a heavy sense of disappointment. When the last episode ended the first thing that came to my mind was, " that it?".

(I hate being this harsh, but it really wasn't good)

Let me just start off by saying ...
