Its story focuses on activities of the ward office's night regional interaction division, which was established
to solve occult incidents in the area. It is found out that the division's new member Shin Miyako can
understand the languages of non-humans that are impossible to understand for human. Even one of yokai
calls him "Abe no Seimei," the most famous and powerful specialist of onmyodo (Japan's traditional esoteric
cosmology) in the Heian period in Japan.
