Description
A peek at the life at a Shinto shrine (or jinja). Mostly centered around one Satomi Shinjirou, who's more or less forced to choose the path to priesthood after his older brother skipped out on that. Kind of a love story (there are several of those in it, actually), but it's more about the people who work at a modern-day shrine and the circumstances they have to deal with.

It's even somewhat educational at times. But don't tell anyone.

Not exactly serious.

While I appreciate the sentiment, it's not really a serious manga.
It does have a lot of trivia about Shinto and associated stuff that you can't find translated anywhere else (well, online at least), that I strive to make as accurate as I can. The mangaka makes it harder by screwing up her research a lot ;)
Still, it's not a story about Shinto. It is, however, a story about the people who work at that jinja, just using the restrictions of that environment.

Oh, and the mangaka is a she. And used to work as a miko. I hope her story is something like Akimoto-san's (since she's the most awesome of the girls/women in the story).

Edit: I just went over the whole thing again here. And I think I have to upgrade my rating.

Interesting and somewhat sad

I find shinto to be a very intriguing religion and the apparent lack of serious manga that deal with its various aspects is somewhat disappointing, so I really appreciate Entropy's work on this project.
The story itself shows very well how shinto with its archaic rituals and beliefs seems to be considered outdated by most Japanese, degrading it to a mere system of show events for many. But while it does not seem to me like the author is of radically conservative belief, she clearly seems to express her own way of understanding this ancient religion and the traditions that go along with it and how a religion that glorifies nature still is valuable even if many aspects of it seem to be unscientific at first.
