Partners in Fear

The decrepit building was condemned long ago, but every time the owners try to tear it down, 'accidents' start to happen - people get hurt, sometimes even killed. Mai Taniyama and her classmates have heard the rumours that the creepy old high school is haunted - possibly by ghosts from the Second World War. So one rainy day they gather at the old school to tell ghost stories, hoping to attract one of the suspected spirits.

No ghosts materialise, but Mai and her friends do meet Kazuya Shibuya, the handsome young owner of Shibuya Psychic Research, who's been hired to investigate paranormal activity at the school. Also at the scene are an exorcist, a Buddhist monk, a woman who can speak with the dead, and an outspoken Shinto priestess. Surely one of them will have the talents to solve this mystery. . .
