Tousuke Rokudo, a first-year student at Amori High, a school attended mostly by delinquents, wants to live a peaceful life with his friends. However, this seems to be impossible because of the fact that he is constantly bullied by his delinquent classmates. When Rokudo and his friends become desperate, Rokudo receives a mysterious package from his long-deceased grandfather. Inside lies a priest’s uniform and a mysterious scroll passed down through his family since the Heian period, said to hold a technique that wards off demons and evil spirits.
