Kogarashi Fuyuzora (冬空 コガラシ Fuyuzora Kogarashi) is the male protagonist of the series.
He is a teen with messy black hair often tied into a ponytail. His bangs are long enough to sometimes cover his eyes. He often wears a school uniform. He is often seen wearing cloth bandages around his forearms and lower legs. He wears a necklace with a magatama.
Kogarashi is surprisingly serious despite his delinquent-like appearance. He is normally calm, collected, and confident. However, he easily gets flustered when put in perverted situations. He mostly gets angry when someone messes with what is his.
Ever since he was young, he had the disposition to attract ghosts and often got possessed by them. They often got him and people around him into trouble so he was shuffled around various facilities. When he was 9 he was possessed by an animal spirit and bit one of the caretakers. Hating that, he ran away. He soon gained hellish debt as a ghost that was addicted to stock gambling possessed him and invested in the wrong stocks.
One ghost that possessed him was a powerful exorcist. The ghost took Kogarashi as an apprentice and after much training, Kogarashi became strong enough to exorcise his master. He claims that his life was destroyed by evil spirits. That ghost was later revealed to be the descendant of Yatahagane named Makyouin Ouga, one of the well-known super-natural clans for generation, and he later took the title as the new Yatahagane.
About a year before the story (2015 (Heisei 27)), on a class trip to Kyoto the shinkansen stopped due to a battle in Sekigahara between the West faction of yokai lead by the Yoinozaka and the East faction of yokai led by the Tenko. Pissed off, he leapt in between them before the fighting started and berated them after making a crater when he landed. Though he did stop the battle and his class was able to go to Kyoto, he was unable to enjoy it due to being chased by daitengu or a nue.
Becoming a resident of Yuragi-sou Edit
Around 2016 (Heisei 28) he came to Yukemori city, he helped an old couple who were startled by a mujina (raccoon dog) youkai. They wanted to do something to repay him, he initially declined but they insisted. He then asked them if they know a super cheap place to stay. The old man then shows him the Yuragi-sou and explains how cheap it is and it is because it is haunted by a ghost. The old man promises that if he could exorcise the ghost, Kogarashi can stay rent free for as long as he liked. Upon hearing this, Kogarashi grasps the old man's hands and asked him if he was serious which he affirmed. Kogarashi then shakes the old man's hand and thanks him since he had been camping outdoors and compares tho old man to Buddha. The old man asked how he ended up poor and Kogarashi explained that ever since he was young, he got easily possessed by ghosts and one of them got him into debt. This made him decide to become an exorcist to get his life back.
Later, Kogarashi entered the hot springs and notes it has been a month since he bathed in warm water. While soaking in the hot springs, he goes over the amenities of the inn and all for a cheap price. He then thinks over what kind of ghost is haunting the inn then justs affirms to himself that no matter what kind of evil spirit, he will punch it out and get to live at the inn for free. He then hears a splash behind him and, after reaffirming to himself that there was no one else besides him here, he concludes that it must be the ghost and turns to face it. He then sees that the ghost was a naked girl. Kogarashi exclaimed in surprise, stood up and turned his head around. As the ghost-girl looks around, Kogarashi goes over in his head that the girl is floating and thus was the ghost and notes that it was a bad situation he is in. The ghost girl then asked Kogarashi if he can see her which he answered that he didn't. He and the girl then realized that since he answered a ghost that means he heard her and thus also saw her. As the girl used her paranormal powers to lift the wooden buckets, Kogarashi thoughts are of that he didn't think that the ghost of the Yuragi Inn would be a girl and that the only way he exorcises ghosts is by punching them and he can't hit a girl. The ghost girl then launched the buckets at Kogarashi and knocks him out.
Kogarashi later wakes up, clothed in a yukata, resting on a little girl's lap. At first, he was confused and then remembered that he moved in.
Spiritual Power Edit
As an inheritor of the title Yatahagane, he has exceptionally strong spiritual power, the greatest seen so far in the series. When he was young, he would often attract and get possessed by ghosts. One ghost was a powerful exorcist and through training, he was able to exorcise her.
Though powerful, he isn't terribly skillful, as he wasn't able to learn the "forced rest in peace" technique and barriers due to it being hard for him. His only use of spiritual power is through punching. One weakness of his is that if he gets forcefully transformed into something without arms, he is basically helpless.
Table tennis mastery Edit
One of the ghost that possessed him was a ping pong coach. He was forced to practice until he became strong enough to be in national tournaments.
Grilling mastery Edit
One of the ghosts that possessed him taught Kogarashi cooking's legendary techniques.
One of the ghosts that possessed him was aspiring to be a mangaka and he was able to learn from that person.
Yes, as you may have guessed, another skill he has mastered due to being possessed by a mountain climber ghost in the past.
Performance Magic Edit
Who would have guessed, another skill he picked up from being possessed. This time it was from a magician. If you can believe it.
Figure Skating Edit
One ghost who possessed him was a prodigy figure skater.
