Haruyoshi, the most powerful onmyji (diviner) in his universe, serves as the protagonist of the novel series. He has been deceived by his pals, and as he is about to pass away, he wishes for happiness in his future life. Then he tries a covert reincarnation magic. He is reborn once the ritual is successful, but in some strange realm. Despite being resurrected into a renowned wizarding family, he is found to lack any magical prowess. However, he quickly finds that the magic of this planet pales in comparison to his old onmy talents, and he announces that he is not in need of magic. With the help of his onmy abilities and the numerous ykai animals who follow him, he so begins his comfortable existence in a different realm.
