The series kicked off back in the spring of 2015 in Monthly Asuka magazine and has eight volumes out as of this week. It’s also got a novelization that came out on July 25th, 2018.
Plot Concept: When Miyako Arata joins the Shinjuku Ward Office, he thinks he’s gotten a normal civil servant job. But it turns out he’s joined the Night Community Exchange Department, one of which operates secretly in each of Tokyo’s twenty-three ward offices. Their job is to resolve occult issues concerning non-human beings. Accompanied by his senpai and department head Sakaki Kyoichi and the occult-obsessed Himetsuka Seo, they work night after night, facing off with beings whose existence defies the laws of our world.
