Program Abstract: This story involves a love triangle and lots of ghosts. It is about a young girl, Azusa and her cousin, Yuzuru, who were engaged to marry at a young age. (eeeeewwww.) However, when Azusa's mother died, she was sent to live with her aunt, farther away from where Yuzuru lived. So time passed on and Yuzuru started dating another girl. Now, as he is used to his normal life and has forgotten about his past engagement, Azusa moves in with his family. Her aunt died, and she has no one left to stay with anymore. She still remembers the promise she and Yuzuru made when they were younger, and takes it very seriously. Once she finds out that he now has a nice girlfriend, the horror begins.
