In der Schule kursieren Gerüchte über einen mysteriösen Wahrsager, der die Auren der Menschen sehen können soll. Bei einem bizarren Treffen entlarvt Kyutaro ihn als gefährlichen Insektenbändiger, der im Hintergrund vermutlich die Strippen für unzählige Seelenverschmutzungen zieht. Auch das fiese Schulmobbing gegen Fumi und das plötzliche Verschwinden ihrer Freundin Kaori soll der unheimliche Typ zu verantworten haben. Was ist so besonders an Fumi, dass er es ausgerechnet auf sie abgesehen hat?
