Description[edit | edit source]
There is a rumor throughout the school that a mysterious ghost wearing a white cloth appears at the children's bedsides in the middle of the night and whispers in their ears, "Do you want your wish to come true?" Through the help of the Ghost rumored at their school, Kazuki and his friends seek to find the Ghost Book in order to make a wish. With a temporary teacher, Ms. Yaoko, they get the book in a maze-like used bookstore with a suspicious owner, but the world outside the used bookstore is not the world they know anymore. With the help of a boy who knows the secret of the illustrated book, Kazuki and his friends challenge the ghosts to the test of their lives.
