DAN DA DAN highlights the pursuits of the paranormal

Momo is a young girl who has an incredible fascination with the paranormal, such as spirits and ghosts. On the other hand, her classmate, Okarun, is someone who believes in the presence of aliens, chases after UFO sightings, and is impressed with the galaxies whenever he thinks about them. The two are an unlikely pair, but fate brings them together, throwing them into a new reality where they must use the knowledge of their passions to protect themselves and others.

Read more synopsis below (via Crunchyroll):

"This is a story about Momo, a high school girl who comes from a family of spirit mediums, and her classmate Okarun, an occult fanatic. After Momo rescues Okarun from being bullied, they begin talking. However, an argument ensues between them since Momo believes in ghosts but denies aliens exist, and Okarun believes in aliens but denies ghosts exist.

To prove to each other what they believe in is real, Momo goes to an abandoned hospital where a UFO has been spotted and Okarun goes to a tunnel rumored to be haunted. To their surprise, they each encounter overwhelming paranormal activities that transcend comprehension. Amid these predicaments, Momo awakens her hidden power and Okarun gains the power of a curse to overcome these new dangers! Their fateful love begins as well!?

The story of the occult battle and adolescence starts!"
