Kitamoto and Nishimura are eager to track down the painting as a lark, but Natsume suspects it might involve a dangerous yokai. He joins the quest in case he needs to stage a yokai intervention, but the strain of keeping most of his friends in the dark about his abilities is starting to take a toll.
