Tactics, v.1 by Sakura Kinoshita
Kan is a folklorist who also happens to be an exorcist. He sees yokai, or spirits. But instead of exorcising them he befriends them and tries to help them.
This volume he finally meets the most powerful yokai of them all and names his Haruka. This binds Haruka to Kan so that he has to do whatever Kan wants. They work together to rescue several yokai on display in a show and then help a young man being chased for his father's work on hypnotism.
I enjoyed this manga. It was fun to have a main character that cheerfully manipulated and blackmailed his "friends" into doing what he wanted them to do. Yet he did because he truly wants them to be his friends.
