Spirits like: * Amewarashi: This entity manifests as a young child in a yellow raincoat. Derived from the powerful emotions of sadness caused by being separated from his parents, as well as his innocent yet mischievous spirit, this Visitor will call for help and bring forth fellow spirit when it feels threatened. * Shiromuku: Shiromuku is a traditional type of pure white wedding kimono, and though she may appear to be a bride, this Visitor is actually a physical manifestation of powerful emotions. This Visitor represents regret and strong feelings for a partner she was never able to marry. * Kuchisake: Inspired by an actual urban legend, the Kuchisake-onna is a strong and agile opponent, capable of closing distances quickly to get at you with her large scissor blades. Be careful if she asks you if you find her attractive; there are no right answers there. Each spirit will have its own attack styles and weaknesses, so you'll need to combine your abilities in different ways to suit each unique combat encounter. But the spirits roaming the streets aren't the only threat. At the heart of everything the disappearance of the population, the appearance of the Visitors, and even your own supernatural abilities sits a shadowy group wearing "Hannya"masks.
