Meet Kantarou, a folklore scholar living in the Taisho period. Ever since he was a child, he has been able to see and talk to various spirits. But now that Kantarou's all grown up, he moonlights as an exorcist solving the problems of ghosts and demons...all with the help of Haruka, the legendary demon-eating tengu!

The manga is much more complex than the anime & characters are better developed & much more interesting. Kantarou is a devious tough little guy- you're never sure what he'll do next (other than try to avoid real work). Haruka is very complex- emotionally damaged, prone to temper tatrums (he's hard on things like cars, buildings, etc) but rather shy & uncertain of himself. It's interesting to watch him read more

By far one of my favorite manga. The series as a whole is totally underrated! The manga is better than the anime by a long shot, as in many cases.
