|List of Chapters|
Takashi Natsume discovers he had inherited a precious treasure from his late grandmother, Reiko. Along with it, he meets his self-proclaimed bodyguard, starting a new adventure together.
The first chapter of the series, it shows Natsume running away from something unseen. He encounters Kitamoto Atsushi and Nishimura Satoru, and he asks them if there is a nearby shrine. He follows Kitamoto's directions and soon spots the shrine.
During this time, the unseen follower is revealed to be a youkai. She pins Natsume down to a tree, but he escapes and makes it to the shrine. In his haste, he trips and breaks a rope, which turns out to be a protective barrier. He releases a powerful youkai, which introduced itself as Madara.
With some persuasion, Madara helps Natsume return the name of the youkai following him. He succeeded and returned the name. Natsume promises that Madara can have the Yuujinchou when he dies, and from that moment on, Madara becomes Natsume's "bodyguard".
