Megumi is a sorcerer, who informs him that he had recently come into contact with a high-grade curse talisman. Meanwhile, Yuji’s friends at the Occult Club unseal a talisman they found at the school, a rotting finger, which attracts Curses to them. Unable to properly protect them and Megumi, Yuji does the only thing he can think of – he swallows the finger.
