Synopsis by Natsume Yuujinchou: Ishi Okoshi on Ayashiki Raihousha

The project will consist of two stories: "Ishi Okoshi" and "Ayashiki Raihousha". In "Ishi Okoshi" Natsume meets a little youkai named Mitsumi in a forest. Mitsumi's task is to awaken the divine youkai "Iwatetsu" from his deep sleep. Mitsumi weighs heavily on Natsume, however, and sets off to help him with his homework.

In "Ayashiki Raihousha" a mysterious visitor appears in front of Tanuma. This mysterious guy visits Tanuma almost every day, talks to him a little and then leaves. Natsume, who has already realized that the visitor is a youkai, is worried about Tanuma, but Tanuma is enjoying the time he is spending with the youkai. Although the youkai does not attempt to harm him, Tanuma's health begins to fail.
