Himika shows Mika a spirit photo and she convinces Himika to let her have it. Mika then excitedly shows it to acquaintance and upperclassman Yukari Hasegawa. Yukari is not interested and declares it's a fake. She calls over her childhood friend Chisato Itsushima who has a sensitivity to paranormal phenomena. Chisato verifies it's authenticity, Mika convinces the three of them to head to Park I (where the spirit photo was taken) to Investigate. During the investigation Mika showed her knack for picking up various rumors. She takes a couple pictures with Chisato and Yukari one of which was taken at the top of the hill near the Torii gate. This photo when developed becomes a gruesome distorted spirit photo. The next day Mika excitedly shows this photo to Chisato. Chisato urges Mika to destroy it but Mika stubbornly refuses. Chisato however takes it from her and destroys it. After returning to the Park with the following night, Mika and her friends discover the true source of the spirit photos was the removal of a shrine to make a parking lot.
Soon afterwords a fellow student at Hinashiro High Mayumi Fujita, The Second Rumor: The Music Room's MF|commits suicide.]] Mika and her friends investigate a rumor that Mayumi Fujita's spirit haunts the Music Room.

Chisato comes along as well and the three girls meet at a small restaurant, there Mika tells them about the rumors surrounding Murayamadai Station. With nothing else to do the three girls decide to take spirit photos at the station. The trio trespass their way into the station after the last train while Mika describes the rumors in gruesome detail. When confronted about the nonchalant way she describes these horrific events she merely says that they don't feel real to her because of her personal disconnection from the events. While exploring the girls document and witness numerous examples of paranormal activity. Mika is knocked onto the tracks by an unseen force and accuses Chisato of pushing her causing another fight with Yukari. Yukari storms off and takes Chisato with her leaving Mika alone to be harassed by a ghost over a payphone. Feeling sympathy for Mika, Chisato brings Yukari back and forces them to make up. They encounter more paranormal events and Mika attempts to board a ghostly train only stopped by the intervention of her friends.
