Spirits have always been attracted to Keitarou Gentouga due to his strong spiritual presence. A traumatic encounter with one had caused his right hand to be cursed, forcing him to wear a glove at all times. Now a college freshman, Keitarou is trying to live as normal a life as possible. With the encouragement of his childhood friend Eiko Houzuki, he becomes a private tutor. Since he is at the top of his intake class, his first client is the tutoring firm's most promising student, Yayoi Houzuki.

To Keitarou's surprise, Yayoi is Eiko's cousin, and she possesses two pupils in each eye—allowing her to see into the spirit world and purposely seek vengeful spirits to exorcise. Ever since a car accident killed both her parents, Yayoi has been searching for the powerful spirit that kidnapped her mother's departed soul. Seeing that spirits are so attracted to Keitarou, she ropes him into helping her collect other evil spirits that will assist in her future fight. Although her quest is dangerous, Keitarou reluctantly decides to join her, even as each new spirit they meet has him questioning his resolve at every turn.

Dark Gathering: Let's play a game of hide-and-seek. But you can only do it late in the night, and please have your headphones on for the special effects...because...I'VE FOUND YOU.

If there was ONE genre that I wish had stood out more in the modern day and age of copy-paste Isekai, fantasy, and reincarnation stories, we've seen one show too many, and it's the horror genre. But then again, horror is a genre that not many authors nor creators can get it right, much less from the one sole afficionado of a famed mangaka that brought us much of the genre's fame: the illusive Junji Ito. ...

Mixed Feelings
i think it's pretty mediocre but not bad.maybe some people would enjoy it as it's actually a horror anime but it doesn't scare you or any shit. Rather than it was a guilty pleasure for me seeing the characters getting scared maybe because I didn't like these characters as they were being pussy all over the whole anime.
The worst of all it ends like a bitch .

Unfortunately in this anime the ghosts don't kill characters instantly and somehow attacks only the main guy character.
The ghosts designs also seem kind of bland too and right now the main cast of characters doesn't seem like they will ...

Preliminary (4/25 eps)
I wouldn't recommend it if you are sensitive to the invasion of personal boundaries and peer pressure. The main character is forced into situations that trigger him even though he has trauma. His best friend, Eiko, knows his trauma and seems to lack common sense and empathy even though she claims to care about him but is the biggest culprit in forcing him into these situations. The girl he tutors seeks the dark spirits but has a profound purpose and prefers to endanger herself than others. She shows the main character more consideration and empathy than his best friend in the few days she has ...
