Ghosts. Friendship. Family.
This anime series is perhaps one of my favorites. It is beautifully animated. Light and airy feel and a delight to watch. It is not an action packed anime but one with an interesting storyline where you slowly learn to fall in love with the main character, because they are just an all around good person. There is some action in this series.
This story follows a boy who can see ghosts, and stumbles onto a book he inherits from his grandmother. Who also had the ability to see ghosts. This book has the names of all the ghosts his grandmother had 'claimed' and one by one the boy meets these spirits. Many who mistaken him for his grandmother. You watch and learn the story of each spirit and you also not only learn about the boys own story- but you learn about his grandmother through the spirits. One spirit - who claims himself to be 'godly' embodies the statue of a lucky cat - comes to life as a real cat with the abilities to transform to a larger being. He chooses to protect the boy, claiming he's only doing so to snatch the book of names. Through the series though- it comes to show that this cat may be choosing to protect the boy for other reasons. The relationship between the two is filled with comedic situations that are sure to make you smile, and other situations that may leave your heart a little warmed.
Though the boy is an orphan.. the family that he obtains in his life are those that choose to be his.
