Shikigami Girl


Modern-day Japan-
A country where advanced development intertwines with enigmatic traditions.
One night, an international student wonders into a small Shinto shrine in Tokyo, without realizing that it conceals an evil spirit. After accidentally releasing the spirit, it attacks him and takes away his identity. His very existence is about to be erased when a mysterious girl appears to rescue him.
Wearing an old-fashioned kimono, the girl commands 'Shikigami'- which appear to be origami animals which have a life of their own. Her name is Kuzuha Komyo and she is a Shikigami invoker of the Komyo clan, an honorable family who have been dedicating themselves to exorcising evil spirits since ancient times.
Thus our protagonist's tale with Kuzuha begins.
