Official Trailer for 'In/Spectre'

Both touched by spirits called yokai, Kotoko and Kuro have gained unique superhuman powers. But to gain her powers Kotoko has given up an eye and a leg, and Kuro’s personal life is in shambles. So when Kotoko suggests they team up to deal with renegades from the spirit world, Kuro doesn’t have many other choices, but Kotoko might just have a few ulterior motives…

The 11-year-old Kotoko Iwanaga is kidnapped by Yōkai and asked to become Goddess of Wisdom. 6 years later she visits Kuro Sakuragawa, a man whose life she previously saved and fell in love with, despite his having a girlfriend, Saki Mihara. She kept track of him for two years until the present day when Saki breaks off their engagement. Kotoko immediately asks to date him. Kuro explains Saki broke up with him after they saw a Kappa and he ran like a coward. Kotoko calls him out on the lie, suggesting it was the Kappa that ran scared from Kuro, causing Saki to realize Kuro is dangerous. Kotoko reveals most yokai are terrified of Kuro. When Kuro demands to know who she is she explains her job to settle all arguments between yokai, and she shows him that her right eye and left leg are both prosthetic, the cost of becoming a Goddess. As she leaves Ochimasu, a deceased samurai, informs her a Bull Ayakashi is infesting the library. She asks Kuro to help with the Ayakashi, to prove she is a goddess. However, the Ayakashi has gone mad and refuses to listen to her. Kuro fearlessly allows the Ayakashi to sever and eat his arm, but to Kotoko’s surprise his arm completely regenerates and the Ayakashi melts and dies. Kuro explains that when he was 11, he ate the flesh of two yokai.

  1. The anime is interesting to watch but isn't all that great. More think the manga series would be a better experience.
