The story is very light hearted and supernatural with absolutely no primary objective. However, don’t let that deceive you. It is still worth the watch. It begins with a girl called Sakura Mamiya, who has the supernatural ability to see spirits. Ever since she was young she thought that it would disappear by the time she reaches High School but it never did. During school, her classmate who is absent suddenly shows up. Without spoilers – and in conclusion, her life becomes an adventure that exposes a lot surprises of romance and comedy that she doesn’t expect.
As a child Sakura Mamiya mysteriously disappeared in the woods behind her grandma’s home. She returned whole and healthy, but since then she has had the power to see ghosts. Now a teenager, she just wishes the ghosts would leave her alone! At school, the desk next to Sakura’s has been empty since the start of the school year, then one day her always-absent classmate shows up, and he’s far more than what he seems!
