Overview

Miko is a shrine maiden who has never had much success at seeing or banishing spirits. Then she meets Kagura, a sexy demon who feeds off women’s feelings of passion and love.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 10 Up—Miko's family has the ability to see ghosts and demons. Her powers first manifest themselves when she discovers Kagura, a demon at her school who has been breaking the hearts of her friends while feeding off their sexual energy. Kagura's presence unearths other, more powerful demons, and Miko must decide if she can trust him to help her fight them. Full of spells, romance, goofy humor, and haunting supernatural sequences, this book has high appeal. Uncluttered panels and clean, bold illustrations heighten the story's drama. Fans of manga romance should appreciate Kagura's angular, androgynous good looks, and the love-hate relationship between him and Miko. Though the subject matter is spicy, this is quite clean, consisting mostly of cheeky innuendos and a few abstract dream sequences in which sex is insinuated but not graphically depicted.—Lisa Goldstein, Brooklyn Public Library, NY

This Priestess has spunk! Miko is a Shrine Maiden who is doing her best to become a strong Priestess and fight evil spirits like her father. She is a fun and willful character who although a little forgetful doesn’t complain when things go bad. Instead she does what she can to fix the problem. I like her fighting spirit and kind heart. It was really interesting to read about a shrine maiden as the heroine for once. She is also a very relatable character and isn’t too perfect or too flighty. Kagura is a demon who feeds of women’s passionate feelings and although annoyed by Miko at first soon starts to warm up to her. He is an interesting character who has a lot of different sides to him and I can’t wait to find out more about him and his past as the series progresses. I liked that he has a soft side, but still retains his own unique personality even if it does get on Miko’s nerves (more fun that way). All around this was a fun and exciting new series that I can’t wait to read more of! ART: The art was beautiful and showed the emotions of the characters very well I couldn’t get enough of the amazing drawings! I definitely give this artwork a 5/5

I love Mayu Shinjo her stories are always fun and twisted with some devilish characters. Its hard not to like this manga with an incubus in it, especially one who is attractive as Kagura! The pictures are amazing, as usual, and the relationship between the main characters is funny. Honestly if you buy this you won't regret it!

If you like supernatural and romance this is right up your alley. I really like the art work and also the story line flows making it easy to follow.

I have to admit that that beginning of this manga started out just a little to fast and straight forward, kinda stupid, but im glad i pulled through!! Very cute and funny and a twist ending to this volume!! i recomend this if your into Fantasy/Romance.

I LOVE this series!! I've been looking around for another great shojo series but I couldn't seem to find one until I came across this book when I was looking in the manga section of the story, and now I'm totally hooked! I love the main character Miko and the fact that she's quite relatable to myself and I love the perverted antics of Kagura, not to mention he's some serious eye candy for the book;) *cough* Anyway the story in my opinion is interesting and well written! and the art's beautiful:) Can't wait for the next book!

I'm a huge fan of Black bird. I've been searching for another series to fill the void. Demon love spell is a great story...you get action,romamce and comedy all in one. I cant wait for the next volume to come out.

This manga is so funny and cute at the same time! The main character, Miko, she may be slightly annoying and stubborn at times but its all worth it in the end! Its such a cute manga!

THIS BOOK IS... I love this book so much I don't know what to say! the Priestess, Miko is wanting to be like her father, unfortunately is she doesn't have the ability of being able to see demons like her father, mother and ancestors. so when demon are out for her the only person that is able to let her see the demon is kagura. And now he is the person that can help

Always looking for a new series to read and this manga definitely did just that for me. Can't wait to read the next volume.

This book is a total rip-off from "Black Bird" ; another manga that is written (and drawn for that matter) at least 10 times better than this book. Take my advice and spend your money on a GOOD manga: Black bird or if your more adventurous; Dawn of the Arcana. Thank you

Okay, so i'l give this manga a 4.5 star rating. This series is awesome! But the problem that i have with it, is i wish the characters relationship with each other had more depth. Cuase kagura kinda just out of NO WHERE proclaimed he was going to protect miko with his life - RIGHT AFTER SHE PRACTILY SEALED AWAY HIS POWERS AND MADE HIM A MIJIT!!!!! i, for one, would've been pissed and would have wanted her dead, so.... * shrug* i just wished that their relationship could have grown and progressed over time. I think it would have been funny to see those two fight with each other and hate each other but be secreatly attracted to each other. THAT would have been awesome!!!
