On her 16th birthday, Himari Momochi receives a letter stating she has inherited a mansion called the "Momochi House." Having been raised in an orphanage, this mansion is the only thing left of her real family, so Himari pays no mind to the rumors that it may be haunted. Upon entering it, she meets Aoi Nanamori and his companions, Ise and Yukari, who all seem to be squatting in her new home. Although they warn her to leave the house, Himari vows to be the one to make them leave instead.
But soon, she is attacked by youkai and finds out that the house sits in the space between the world of the living and the spirit realm. Even more surprising, Aoi was chosen to be the guardian of the house—a position originally meant for Himari. But this great power came with an awful price: Aoi can never leave the mansion, and his existence in the human world has been erased. Ignoring his pleas for her to leave the mansion, Himari promises to help Aoi break the housebound curse as she begins living under the same roof as him.
Momochi-san Chi no Ayakashi Ouji has been published in English as The Demon Prince of Momochi House by VIZ Media under the Shojo Beat imprint since July 7, 2015, and in Polish by Waneko since July 3, 2015.
It's good to see a shoujo manga with a different theme and not the usual cliche setting like unpopular girl meets popular boy and they will fall in love. Though the story is not that unusual I guess. Ayakashi-themed manga.
It actually reminded me a bit of Kamisama Hajimemashita at first (probably cause of the cat/fox ears) though both have different plots anyway.
But as I read, it gets really interesting and intriguing. Really! Though I've only read 12 chapters so far but enough to piqued my interest anyway. It's cute, funny and a bit of mysterious. And since this is also supernatural/fantasy, I'm
expecting more things will happen.
And then the art. I'm usually picky when it comes to art but this manga's art is really gorgeous. Especially the boys lol.
It's a good read. I can't say that it's really one of my super duper fave manga (YET), but I'm really looking forward for more chapters. I bet this will become popular soon especially if it gets an anime adaptation.
If you enjoyed manga like Kamisama Hajimemashita, Watashi no Ookami-kun, Akaya Akashiya Ayakashi no, Natsume Yuujinchou, or any manga that have ayakashi theme on it, then you will enjoy this!
I was actually really surprised by how much I am enjoying this. It's usually hard to find a good female MC without them being a pushover. Sure the MC is the type to "not listen" when something is happening, and has to be rescued, but the actual story and character's background stories are really emotional and heartfelt. I actually wasn't expecting such emotions when reading, and at certain times I actually felt like crying, which is very rare for me when reading manga. I really hope this kind of manga gets animated in the future like Kamisama Hajimemashita did. You could say they have the
same idea, but just different characters and a little bit different story. Overall, I am excited for more chapters, and I definitely recommend this manga!
