Kekkaishi Synopsis

Yoshimura Sumimura comes from a legacy of "Kekkaishi", individuals with supernatural abilities who are capable of destroying evil creatures known as "Ayakashi" who venture into the human world from time to time. The Ayakashi are demons who seek to appropriate the power that emanates from the land of Karasumori, which turns out to be the place where the school Yoshimura attends is located. Now Yoshimura will have to fight to defend both his school and his hometown. Although, if it were up to him, he'd actually rather be baking cakes than fighting horrible creatures at night.
