Kyokou Suiri summary

Hidden from view, spirits known as youkai inhabit the world. Though most are benign, a subgroup threatens the tenuous peace between youkai and humanity. Ever since Kotoko Iwanaga agreed to become their "God of Wisdom," she has served as an intermediary between the two realms, solving any supernatural problems that come her way. At a local hospital, Kotoko approaches Kurou Sakuragawa, a college student whose long-term relationship ended in an unfortunate breakup. Kotoko harbors feelings for him and suspects that something supernatural lurks in his harmless appearance, so she enlists Kurou's help in helping the youkai.

Two years later, news of an idol accidentally crushed to death by steel beams floods the press. Months later, however, sightings begin to tell of a faceless woman wielding a steel beam. As with any supernatural problem, Kotoko and her partner set out to stop this spirit from wreaking havoc, but this case may turn out to be a lot darker and more personal than they might have thought.
