In Dark Gathering, college freshman Keitaro Gentoga is haunted by his ability to attract spirits, which has inevitably led to collateral damage in the past. While he attempts to blend into society through his work as a private tutor, this soon goes sideways when his first student, Yayoi Hozuki, sucks him into a quest to find the spirit that took her mother from her.
