The story of a boy who can see and communicate with demons

I found a copy of this manga volume while browsing the shelves at my local library. I decided to check it out and give it a try.

Takashi Natsume has an ability to see and communicate with demons. At the beginning of the manga, he moves to a small town where his late grandmother had lived, and he inherits an old book of hers. It turns out Natsume's grandmother also had the ability to see and communicate with demons, and used her spiritual powers to enslave the demons by writing their name in the book. After Natsume learns this secret about the book and how he can release the demons from it, he works at releasing the demons as they come to him to try and reclaim their names.

I thought this manga had a very interesting premise, and it seems like it has a lot of potential in the future volumes. I would definitely like to try and track down more volumes of this series to see if this potential is realized or not.

I wrote this review after checking out a copy of this manga volume through the King County Library System.

What did you think of this review?
