Our unlucky protagonist, Jin, uses the trunk of a sacred tree to carve a statue for a school project. When he takes it outside, to his surprise it begins absorbing the surrounding earth and transforms into...a girl! So naturally this guardian deity is pretty pissed that her tree was cut down, and lives with Jin while she takes out her anger by squashing, cleaning the "Impurities".

Good so far, though it's hard to tell from a single chapter. I hope to see more chapters in the future.

Since Dynasty-scans has now taken over from TEA-scans, DS will be working on it and we'll soon have more high quality chapters ready biggrin Now that the anime's out, it's gotten more attention.

About the series, it has great art, a nice mix of characters and it's quite funny, with Nagi's puns and quirky behaviour. There's also some mystery surrounding her true nature and the relationship with her sister.

As the author has pointed out right in the 1st volume, it's going to be a semi-serious, semi-light story, thus the reason why the flow of the story may seem all over the place. Definitely recommended.

Too much theological supernatural information for me, there's not explanation for any of it, and nobody knows what's happening, the different spirits in the story seems to be just as confussed as the reader is.

So the main story at the beginning is just a mean for a lot of cliche chapters, cooking contest, popularity contest, manga convention, beach trip, cultural festival, when there seems to be a little development is just a false alarm, so it doesn't go anywhere until the last releases.

Nagi's design is really good, genuine, is what gives personallity to this manga. I like the art. On the other hand there's a little lack in the facial expression department at the beggining, but later on the author seems to improve about that.

I like Kannagi, don't get me wrong, there's a tender feeling about it, Takenashi Eri nailed that, and the artwork is good, but with the weird pace and the excess of unexplainable turns of events i find myself lost too many times, it takes some effort to follow the story for me.

Manga is just another way to tell stories. The artwork is key, the originality is important too, but transmitting the story to the reader is just fundamental, it's a given, it's a mean to comunicate first of all.

The manga has great potential ;P Though the scanlating has stalled. It would be awesome to have more though - looks like the new group Nagi may pick it up but with the anime already showing, we might get to see the story in motion before it gets translated on paper (or pixels xD)

I can only say, I love this story for some reason. I've watched the animated series three times now, and read the manga a couple of times as well. It hasn't ended yet, but everything is falling in place very well, better than I expected.

The premise is unique, although some more generic elements are definitely present. Most characters are pretty well developed, certainly more so than in most other mangas, and the plot is engaging: it really sucks you in and doesn't let go. Since the author's hiatus, it seemed she had all the time in the world to think of how the story should progress, and I very much like everything she did with the story so far. Overall: recommended.

It's hard to tell after just one chapter but this looks promessing. The art is good and although the plot is still somewhat unclear, it is not unexpected after only one chapter.

ps: It's nice that I can finally move a manga from my wish list to my reading list biggrin

And for gods' sake, take it a bit lightly will you?!

Although it's the only first chapter, it quite funny. The pun are quite good too (depend on your taste, you may find them horrible, of course).

The art is nice. Nothing to complain about, both dialog and background detail.

I look forward to future chapters with GREAT enthuasiams

EDIT: Now that the 8th chapter is out, I must say my first impression is not wrong. The protagonist, Jin, is giving quite a feeling of 'pure artist'. And the goddesses are interesting,very funny and colourful. In a sense, it has some similiarities with Ah My Goddess, both in the direction, and the feelings from the artwork+dialog line. Still, that's not a good comparision as it sound. Oh well, read and find out for yourself.

It stands out in that it's not too hilarious or perverse, but the execution is measly at best and while I like the art, anyone with two eyes can see that the highlight has come and gone. In the end, it's your choice whether to stick with it or not.

EDIT: I just watched the anime and enjoyed it. I must say go with the anime on this one.

A nice mix of shounen and romance elements, with gorgeous art. Can't wait for more.
