After witnessing a rare summer snow with his friends, Kusaka Yuu begins to develop supernatural abilities. Years afterwards, he finds himself the target of powerful beings, and learns that his powers are due to the "ayakashi," parasitic organisms that grant special abilities in exchange for a portion of the host's life force. The conflict turns treacherous as Yuu’s friends’ lives also become threatened, and he learns the truth behind the loss of his dear friend, Izumi. Will Yuu free himself from the ayakashi, or will he succumb to the temptation of power?
