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!!
Himemiko and Kotaro’s happy ending has triggered some confusing flashbacks for Tomoe, and his memories are affecting more than just his mood. The shrine has started to collapse because Tomoe isn’t strong enough to maintain it, and things are so bad that Mikage returns. He explains to Nanami that Tomoe is dying from a 500-year-old curse, and there’s nothing she can do to save him!
Reads R to L (Japanese Style) for teen audiences.

From my Amazon review: NO MORE LIGHT AND FLUFFY. BLOOD AND FEUDAL JAPAN AND EVIL YOKAI. This is a shoujo series worthy of reading. This has PLOT, COMPLEX CHARACTERS, and PAIRINGS I AM INVESTED IN. And the anime just HINTED at Tomoe and his past. :( THIS is what the anime never included. And reading this volume, I can't understand why they couldn't try-I mean, us fans would lend them money to do so, I HOPE-really because this would have made the series a SUCCESS. In the anime, you have our awesome heroine who slowly is bogged down with her FEELS.....and the manga shows her badass side, her devotion and charisma and who her shinshie truly is. I cried, I felt my heart ache, I prayed for the characters safety!!!! This volume left me so torn. Not in a bad way. You see who Yukiji really is, and DEAR GOD that last page was OMG. How is Julietta Suzuki going to weave this plot, which has become such an intricate and brilliant thing? I am so excited to find out! I am not including spoilers, but I will say that what you read will make you rethink everything you know. the characters you have been following all presented such a side to them that I felt my heart break when I realized the gravity of the situation they were in, and the choice Nanami had to make, as well as her friends utter and complete faith in her. And their love for her. The things Nanami must do is enough to make me proud of her and deathly afraid for her. She is so strong, and driven but I fear for her. Some may think she is being "too angsty" in this volume. I can't believe you would think this. After what is going on, WHO WOULDN'T BE THINKING THOSE SAME THINGS!? She still kicks butt and is pushing through, so don't tell me you could do any better. I know I couldn't.
Flashbacks and emotions combined. Story looks like taking another turn. With some twists here and there. Good volume basically.
