MyAnimeList offers this synopsis:
Heir of an old famous family of exorcists, Keika You is stricken by poverty after losing his parents. He struggles as a street fortune teller and computer recovery part timer to earn money. One night in a junkyard, he meets the mysterious yet charismatic exorcist, Ki Tanmoku, fighting an evil spirit. This encounter is the beginning of a fated story for Keika. Unfortunately for him, he was actually hit by a car and became a ghost. That was when the handsome exorcist Ki appeared and asked Keika to make a "pact" with him to fight evil spirits together. Here starts the friendship of our heroes!
In the Japanese dub, Keika You will be voiced by Yuuichi Iguchi (Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru) and Ki Tanmoku will be voiced by Shunsuke Takeuchi (Bungou Stray Dogs). Rumi Ookubo of Yuru Yuri will appear as a character named Shiyou Shin.
