Ayakashi Triangle Synopsis
Matsuri Kazamaki and Suzu Kanade are childhood friends, bonded by their shared ability to see ayakashi-youkai in search of a life force to devour. However, in high school, their relationship deteriorates. As Suzu’s one-sided feelings increase, so does the difference in their views on ayakashi: Matsuri considers all ayakashi to be a threat to her friend, while Suzu is a medium ayakashi (someone who exudes a certain amount of significant life force compared to the average human) and loves them all despite the risk. When the two stumble upon a talking white cat named Shirogane, they don’t know that it is a four-hundred-year-old ayakashi known as the “King of Ayakashi.”
He is hell-bent on gaining even more power by devouring Suzu, but when Matsuri swoops in to try and save her by sealing away Shirogane’s powers, the ayakashi uses a jutsu to turn him into a girl! Matsuri vows to protect Suzu from further harm as her best friend, but she must learn to act like a girl until her grandfather (a famous wind jutsu exorcist ninja) can undo the jutsu. Meanwhile, Suzu must resolve his romantic feelings for Matsuri now that he is no longer a boy. But when Matsuri takes the king as his pet, the future of the two friends seems uncertain.
