The famous “Seven Wonders” that every school seems to have are a staple of Japanese urban legends. One of the best known is that of Hanako-san: the ghost of a girl who haunts the school bathrooms. Kamome Academy has its own version of the legend of Hanako-san. Rumor has it that if one manages to summon Hanako-san, she will grant her summoner any wish. Drawn by gossip, many have tried to invoke her, but all attempts have failed.

However, when Nene Yashiro, a girl with romantic hopes, dares to summon Hanako-san, she discovers that the rumored “girl” is actually a boy! After a series of unfortunate events related to Nene’s romantic desires, she finds herself unwittingly drawn into the world of the supernatural, becoming Hanako-kun’s assistant. She soon learns of Hanako-kun’s lesser-known duty: maintaining the fragile balance between mortals and apparitions.
