Teenager Kazamaki Matsuri has long been part of an elite force of ninja exorcists, tasked with fighting malevolent ayakashi spirits that threaten Japan – especially those after his childhood friend, the spirit medium Kanade Suzu. As he fiercely protects her, and his relationship with her blossoms from friendship to something more, a powerful cat ayakashi vows to get between the lovebirds: by casting a forbidden spell that turns Matsuri into a woman! With no obvious way to undo the spell, Matsuri must continue to fight the ayakashi—and return to school—in this new feminine body until he can find a way to return.
