A dark horselicensed the manga for the English market and described the plot as:
Do you or someone you know need an exorcist who works cheaply? Reagan is your man! What’s his secret to busting ghosts while keeping prices low? Well, first, he’s a con man, and second, he pays the person who has the real psychic power—his student assistant Shigeo—less than minimum wage. Shigeo is an awkward but kind boy whose desire to help and get along with others is tied to the mental locks he has placed on his own emotions. Raigen knows he has to use Shigeo to stay in business, but for better or worse, he’s also his mentor and advisor. And he also knows that when a child’s normally suppressed emotions reach level 100, it can unleash more psychic energy than any of them can handle!
