As part of his rehabilitation, Keitarō takes on the part-time job of a private tutor, and his first pupil is Eiko's cousin, Yayoi Hōzuki. Besides being a child prodigy, there is another peculiarity regarding Yayoi—she has a spiritual constitution, just like Keitarō. However, she yearns to encounter spirits, hoping to find the ghost that took her mother away.

  1. No Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 and Mushoku Tensei II huh? Honestly I'm cool with that and we really need to not show any anime continuations and only stick with new shows.
    Speaking of which, you really should check out "Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead", if not already, after the first two episodes it's already best anime of the year potential!
