Mononogatari summary

When the spirits enter the human world, they can possess ancient objects and take on a physical form: a tsukumogami. Tsukumogami can be gentle, violent, or something in between, so the Saenome clan peacefully helps bring them back to the spirit world to prevent their destruction.

Hyouma Kunato is a member of the clan, but he is... far from peaceful, having harbored a grudge when a tsukumogami stole something important from him. Fearing that Hyouma's brazen anger at dealing with these spirits could lead to supernatural disasters, Hyouma's grandfather sends him to Kyoto to join Nagatsuki Botan, an unusual young woman who actually lives with the Tsukumogami as if they were her family. Can Hyouma learn to control his emotions when dealing with the Tsukumogami, or is his own mind doomed to be possessed by anger forever?
