Nene, an orphaned girl who was taken in by a priest, lives under the church's charity, selling matches in town to make ends meet. One day, the priest decides to send her to work as a maid for a local lord. On the road out of town, she is rescued by his nephew, who escorts her to the lord's palace. But it turns out a certain fairy-tale loving demon has taken up shop as the lord, and the priest's motives may be less than altruistic... What will 'Lord' J scheme up for this erotic retelling of The Little Match Girl?
The story deviates from the fairy tale right at the beginning by having the little match girl Nene have a thriving match-selling business rather than a struggling one. Honestly, she spends more time as a maid in the lord's mansion than as a street peddler. But that was probably done to fit in the type of sex scenes they wanted to fit in. Some of the other story elements from the fairy tale are included, but reinterpreted. Like having wishes tied to her lighting the matches (though in this manga, they're magical matches which are actually granting her wishes). And having a Father who will be abusive of her if she doesn't sell things (though in this manga, he's trying to get her to sell her body).
