Though they are barred from physical contact, the two become close friends. But after a few short years it becomes apparent that Gin ages more slowly than humans, so while Hotaru is growing up and changing, Gin remains in stasis. How will Hotaru adapt to the complicated emotions she develops as her and Gin's ages gradually converge?

Hotarubi no Mori e and Kon no Ki Konoha are so alike, they might as well have been retellings of the same story. Both are about a little girl who befriends a forest spirit, who she can only meet once a year. As she grows up, her feelings develop into something more than just innocent friendship. But surely, a relationship between a human and a spirit can't last forever, can it? Short, (bitter)sweet tales of a seemingly impossible love. If you like innocent and heartwarming love stories, be sure to check these two out.

Hotarubi no Mori e and Kon no Ki Konoha are very similar stories, not only in premise but also in execution.  They are about a young girl meeting a spirit and slowly falling in love with him as she visits him every year.  Both are quite sad, but also beautiful short romance stories.

Morisato Keiichi has always had bad luck. No matter what he does or how he acts, nothing seems to go his way. His bike frequently breaks down, his classmates take advantage of him, women ignore and scorn him, and on top of all that, he’s only 5'3". In Heaven, when someone’s bad luck and good luck are so heavily out of balance, Belldandy (Goddess First Class, Second Category, Unlimited) of the Goddess Assistance Agency comes to the rescue. Belldandy grants Keiichi one wish to make up for all of his bad luck, but when Keiichi wishes for Belldandy to stay by his side forever... the trouble begins. Can Keiichi keep Belldandy by his side, or will outside elements force her to return to heaven?
