Misao Harada has always been able to see strange creatures that are invisible to everyone else. Living as a regular high school girl, the teen wants a boyfriend more than anything, so when her first love, Kyou, moves back into the house next door it seems her wish will come true. However, Kyou is in fact a Tengu who has returned to fulfil their childhood promise and by taking Misao as his bride his tribe will gain tremendous prosperity. With other demons out for her blood, Kyou offers her protection if she will consent to marry him, but distraught by his revelation, Misao turns him down. In Kyou’s relentless pursuit to protect Misao and win her over he has begun working as her new homeroom teacher in order to best protect her. Now with demons attacking her at every turn, and a fox spirit named Shuuhei also vying for her hand in marriage, can Misao really resist Kyou’s charms forever, but does the handsome tengu really love her or is he simply after the benefits their union would bring?
Nanami used to live in a ramshackle apartment with her father - a man who spent half his time gambling and the other half hiding from debt collectors - until one day the scoundrel ran away, leaving his daughter hungry and homeless. That is, until she meets a mysterious stranger in the park who deems her the new goddess of a local shrine! Unfortunately, Nanami’s new home is occupied by Tomoe, a fox familiar who objects to the presence of a mere mortal and immediately begins to bicker with the girl. If she can manage to form a contract with the troublesome man, he’ll be obligated to accept and help her perform her duties. But there’s a catch: Nanami has to kiss him first, and who’d want to lock lips with that awful guy?!
Both series are about a girl who becomes closely entwined with a shrine, and the otherworldly being who are tied to it. The heroine in each case does not merely clean up the shrine, but she takes an active role in fulfilling the wishes & prayers of those who visit.
