I have no idea what kind of story it is! It was already made into a live-action movie adaptation, so I assumed it would not be so gory......
Maybe! Then, let's check the story!
Here is the outline for The Night Beyond the Tricornered Window!
A young man, Mikado Kousuke is a person who can see one thing clearly.
Unfortunately, the thing that he can see clearly is not something he wants to see, like in his fateful encounter, but we would probably call it the “dead.”
One day, when he was working at his bookstore, he saw a dead person.
Suddenly, one guy came up to Mikado and asked Mikado's name.
The person looked very happy to meet with Mikado, saying he (Mikado) is my destiny. He also said that he needed to show his appreciation to the owner of the bookstore! He grabbed Mikado's shoulder and told him,
“I have never met someone like you who can see ghosts clearly. You are definitely my fate!”
The next moment, Mikado noticed a ghost was right next to him and leaned on him. The person calmly put his hand on Mikado's chest. Then, he whispered to Mikado, “I am sorry for doing this all of a sudden.” He apologized.
He used Mikado's soul to dispel the ghost in a moment.
Mikado lost consciousness due to the strong impact. When Mikado woke up,
he was lying on the table in the backroom of the bookstore.
Even though there was no bed in the backroom, he did not like the idea of laying on the hard table as if he was a dead fish on a cutting board. The owner of the bookstore told Mikado that he asked the person, who is an exorcist, to come to the store to check the bookstore because there were rumors that ghosts appeared there.
The exorcist was Hiyakawa Rihito.
He told Mikado that dispelling a ghost is just like grabbing it and throwing it away. Not difficult at all. Mikado said that he does not believe that ghosts exist and exorcists are all fake.
“So you deny what you have seen?”
Mikado could not reply quickly.
Mikado told Rihito that what I have seen is because of my brain's malfunction. I was thinking about going to a clinic for it. Rihito was listening to Mikado but decided to say something to the owner of the bookstore.
“Mr. Owner, please give me Mikado-kun!”
He then offered a job to Mikado.
He asked Mikado to be his assistant to help exorcise ghosts.
Of course, Mikado declined his offer because Mikado is terrified of ghosts.
When he is not wearing glasses, he is terrified of ghosts badly.
If he does not wear glasses, he cannot see anything due to his poor eyesight. However, he can see ghosts clearly while other areas look blurry. He said that when he sees ghosts they appear as clearly as if he was wearing glasses.
Since Mikado declined the offer for the job and started leaving, Rihito told Mikado.
If you are with me, you won't become scared of ghosts any more.
The next day, the bookstore owner asked Mikado to go to an apartment in town to check out something.
It was obviously Rihito's intention.
The bookstore owner said, “You will be paid.” Since Mikado had nothing to do if he wasn't working, he decided to visit an apartment to check with Rihito.
Surprised Mikado bumped his head into the door .
This is the start of exorcising work by this odd pair.
GGGGGGGhost!!! Is it going to be more scary?
Well...... it will be. It is not cruel or anything, rather it is spooky storytelling. It is not too terrifying but spooky for sure. If you are not a big fan of horror but are interested in supernatural incidents and drama between people, we recommend this manga!
This series is already completed. So this is also one reason we want to recommend it!
Whether you like horror stories or not, please check out this manga!
Additionally, Check out the anime that will start airing in October 2021!!
