For his art project Mikuriya Jin carved a statue from the recently chopped local sacred tree. As he is about to bring it to school, the goddess of the tree, Nagi, descends upon the statue, having slept until now, not knowing of her demise.

Volume 2: Kaiketsu Yousei Puniata (The Amazing Fairy Puniata)
Volume 4: Hildegard no Shiro
