Set in the haunted town of Obake-cho, Obakezukan! follows the misadventures of Hiroshi, an ordinary human boy, and Miinyan, a ghostly cat who takes the form of a hat. In order for Miinyan to become a fully-fledged "cat in mouse's clothing", she needs to complete a ghostly field guide, and so Hiroshi helps her to study the spooky streets of Obake-cho.
