Nanami Momozono is alone and homeless after her dad skips town to evade his gambling debts and the debt collectors kick her out of her apartment. So when a man she's just saved from a dog offers her his home, she jumps at the opportunity. But it turns out that his place is a shrine, and Nanami has unwittingly taken over his job as a local deity!

Nanami has all kind of new responsibilities she doesn't understand, dangers she's unaware of, and a cranky ex-familiar who's...actually pretty hot. What's a new-fledged godling to do?

I really like this manga at first and as the story progressed on, I started liking it more and more. But, there were many things that really changed my opinion about this manga.

ART 8/10: The art was really nice and I really liked it, but there was nothing really special about it.

STORY 7/10: The plot of the story is unique, but the vibe of it was like any other shoujo manga.

CHARACTER 8/10: At first, I thought that Nanami was a weak heroine and she needed Tomoe to save her all the time. But, she progressed and she was weak but not as read more

At first, I thought this manga was going to be just like any other forbidden love theme. I didn't think much of it when I saw summaries and pictures but when I actually started reading, I absolutely loved it. The reason is because it's not too romantic. Well, at least not yet. Anyways, I hate sappy, cheesy, overdone romance mangas that have no point whatsoever. I'm sure you do too. This manga isn't like that at all. In fact, Tomoe even hates (like really hates) her at the beginning but they start to soften up to each other even though Tomoe tries to hide it.

When I picked this up, I assumed that it would have the typical shojo manga storyline. I decided to read it to test it out. I know you're not supposed to judge a book by it's cover, but that's what I do; I don't read a manga series if I don't like the art AND the story. It has to be both. I absolutely loved this!

The story is very cute and I think I liked this almost as much as Vampire Game, which is the very first manga series I ever read. Nanami is very adorable (in a sense...) and the fact that she read more

This is my first review here so sorry for possibly sounding incoherent or something.

I gotta tell you, I don't really like shoujo manga and animes. I tried, but I found them too clichéd (gah, hate clichés) and mushy and I usually hate the main female characters with such a passion I can't continue with the story. What is up with the annoying love triangles too? Not to mention the art style tends to be so... cheesy or just... weird. Hope this doesn't offend anyone, they're just not to my taste.

Anyway, I started reading this because my sister recommended it. I was skeptical, cuz of the read more
