On the moon, there is an old shrine that has fallen into ruin. On the birthday of Himeko Kurusugawa and Chikane Himemiya, there is a sudden eclipse, and a voice calls the eight necks of Orochi to rise and destroy the Solar Priestess and the Lunar Priestess. The two girls soon find themselves under attack by the Orochi, but Himeko's close friend Souma has resisted the call of the Orochi and has sworn to protect her, no matter what.


Kannazuki no Miko has been licensed in English by VIZ Media. The first volume is set to be released on January 26, 2016. The series was previously published by TokyoPop as Destiny of Shrine Maiden on May 6 and July 7, 2008 respectively.

I bought this with every intention of really liking it, however, I could not find one thing I liked. In fact, if I had not gotten both volumes, I would have most likely dropped this title after the first clichéd chapter.

Story: The plot is heavily cliched for the first half of the book, then speeds up dramatically in the second part to where nothing makes sense and you are left wondering what is going on. It's just a series of unexplained plot points. There is no real flow to the story and it leaves the reader cold. We are told a read more

Both manga take a darker tone and are well worth the read.

Kannazuki no Miko and Zettai Shoujo Seiiki Amnesia are both made bye the same person and also seem to have a lot in common with characters.
