Synopsis

Five years ago, almost every villager of Ootsuka died due to a tragic plague. But mysteriously enough, three survivors: a girl and two boys, emerged. Now living in a church, the three live in isolation, hidden from those who may seek to find them. Shino, one of the survivors, has control over the power of Murasame, the blade of life. But when the imperial church seeks to take the Murasame for themselves, their peaceful life becomes a thing of the past...

Recommendations

Manga: Kieli
Both stories happen around kids who live in a church, and they deal with the supernatural (ghosts, undying in Kieli and demons, spirits in Hakkenden). Also both Kieli and Shino looked very similar to me while I was reading these mangas.

Manga: Asterisk
Shoujo fantasy manga with a relatively modern world, except there are supernatural creatures that the main characters work to control and protect unaware bystanders. Shino and Kio are abnormally powerful, yet not conceited. People naturally gather around them. Both works feature beautiful art and a well planned and structured story. 
reportRecommended by shinkeikaku
Manga: Silver Diamond
Both works involve well-developed, imaginative fantasy worlds that contain interesting people, magic, and creatures. The main characters, Shino and Rakan, attract unique, likeable allies. They are considerably powerful themselves--one wields a living sword and the other wields plants (quite effectively!). Overall, both works are beautifully drawn and read like a fantasy novel.
