Shou, Ako and Reiko are three friends who live in a spooky town filled with ghost stories and haunted places, such as the abandoned Kaidan Restaurant. From an encounter with a bullied classmate at school who’s acting strangely like a cat to vacationing in the countryside near a forest where a boy once drowned, the trio often find themselves in the middle of supernatural tales of terror. Whether they’re telling frightful legends or inadvertently interacting with the dead, Shou, Ako and Reiko will experience the scary side of life with curiosity and camaraderie.
Aside from their supernatural themes and short-story-style setup, these shows have similarities in art style and the elementary school age of the kids. Additionally, in both, there is a female protagonist who gets pulled into solving problems that are a result of otherworldly beings acting on the world. Spooky, and at times, comedic.
