Malevolent Spirits: Mononogatari Storyline

Tsukumogami, or “marebito,” are spirits that materialize as relics of the past. Despite being a member of the Saenome clan who is tasked with silently returning them back to their home world, Hyouma Kunato despises them because one of them took something very valuable from him. In an effort to help Hyouma overcome his hatred, his grandfather sends him to live with Botan Nagatsuki, a girl who owns six “friendly” tsukumogami, and nurtures them as a family.
