Summary for Ayakashi Triangle

Matsuri Kazamaki and Suzu Kanade are childhood friends bound by their shared ability to see ayakashi youkai in search of a life force to devour. However, in high school, their relationship deteriorates. With Suzu's one-sided feelings, the difference in their views on ayakashi also increases: Matsuri sees all ayakashi as a threat to her friend, while Suzu is an ayakashi medium (someone who exudes a considerable amount of life force compared to the average human) and loves all of them despite the risk. When the two come across a talking white cat named Shirogane, little do they know it is a 400-year-old ayakashi known as the "King of the Ayakashi".

He's hellbent on gaining even more power by devouring Suzu, but when Matsuri rushes in to try and save her by sealing Shirogane's powers, the ayakashi uses a jutsu to turn him into a girl! Matsuri vows to keep Suzu from further harm as her best friend, but must learn to act like a girl until her grandfather (a famous wind jutsu exorcist ninja) can undo the jutsu. Meanwhile, Suzu must resolve her romantic feelings for Matsuri now that she's not a boy anymore. But when Matsuri takes the king as a pet, the future of the two friends seems uncertain.
