Story

A 15 year old boy, Hiroshi Kuzumi, has recently moved into a new town in the mountains. The town is separated into new and old streets by the river, and many mysterious local cultures still remain. Although confused and enjoying his new life, one person kept her distance from him: class committee member Kushinada Nemuru. In their few encounters she gave him a word of advice: "Stay away from the old streets."[2]

Characters

Hiroshi Kuzumi (九澄 博士 Kuzumi Hiroshi?)
Voiced by: Yū Kobayashi
Hiroshi is a 15 year old boy and is the main character of the story. His family moved to the city of Jōga due to reasons relating to his father's line of work. The kanji for his name can also be read as "Professor", so many people call him Hakase (Professor) as a nickname. Hiroshi is not fond of this nickname, because it makes people believe that he is smarter than he is. Despite this, he still allows Kaname to call him by it. Hiroshi later learns from Nemuru that he is a 'Temptation', a rare human who emits a subtle scent so intoxicating to Jouga wolves that constant exposure will drive them insane.
Nemuru Kushinada (櫛名田 眠 Kushinada Nemura?)
Voiced by: Mariya Ise
Nemuru is the 15 year old sole daughter of the Kushinada clan, the family with the most political power and presence in Jōga. She is the class president of Hiroshi's class. Nemuru is initially very cold to Hiroshi because she considers him to be an eyesore. Despite this, she tries to indirectly help Hiroshi to stay away from the pursuers. It is later revealed that she is White Wolf Kannon.
Isuzu Tsumuhana (摘花 五十鈴 Tsumuhana Isuzu?)
Voiced by: Emiri Katō
Isuzu is a 15 year old girl who lives next door to Hiroshi. She is tomboyish and extremely affectionate towards Hiroshi, sometimes to his dismay. Kaname is Isuzu's best friend. She has a brother named Issei, who attended university before becoming a "Fallen" and is killed by Nemuru. She herself becomes a "Fallen" and attacks Hiroshi, but is spared her brother's fate.
Mana Kuzumi (九澄 マナ Kuzumi Mana?)
Voiced by: Saki Fujita
Mana is Hiroshi's 12 year old younger sister. Due to a car accident she is bound to a wheelchair. In spite of this, she strives to be independent, and becomes quite annoyed when her brother rushes to her side to help her with the smallest of tasks.
Kaname Asagiri (朝霧 かなめ Asagiri Kaname?)
Voiced by: Mai Fuchigami
Kaname is a 16 year old girl who moved to the Jōga with her family a few months before Hiroshi and she is Isuzu's best friend. Being the eldest of her, Hiroshi and Isuzu, she tends to act as the voice of the reason for the group. Kaname has somewhat of a dark personality, and does not hesitate to tease or trick her two friends. She is interested in the occult and loves city legends and folklore.
White Wolf Kannon (白狼観音 Hakurō Kannon?)
She is a deity who prowls Jōga, carrying out the god of the lands's will to rid it of the fallen "wolves". She appears as a young girl wearing an elaborate white outfit and wolf-like mask and wielding a giant scythe. She is named after the bodhisattva Kannon. She is later revealed to be Nemuru.
