Description
From Aerandria Scans:

Momozono Nanami's dad, a man with a penchant for gambling, disappeared after accumulating a huge amount of debt. Thus, she was chased out of her house by the debt collectors. When she met a timid guy being chased by a dog, he told her that he'd give her his house. She believed his persuasive talk, but when she went to his house… it turned out to be a shrine. Moreover, a guy with fox ears appeared, which made Nanami even more confused. What will become of homeless and confused Nanami?

it surprises me that people call nanami "useless" when she actually shows incredible growth as a character. predictably no one's good at anything when they first begin, but she's got a strong character and becomes even stronger as the story continues.

all the characters have a backstory that you can sympathize with so you can really learn to love them, and the overarching plot of the story and the little surprises the author throws in are INCREDIBLE. the most recent chapter had such a touching moment that tears came to my eyes, and it was founded on the background of the story, so it has a lot of great continuity and well thought out aspects of its plot.

also, tomoe and nanami and hilarious and adorable and utterly heartbreaking because of how much you want them to be together. overall the series is incredibly funny too, and one of my all time favorites.

Not only was this shoujo one of my first ever on-going favorites but it really never ceases to surprise me even now. I admit that when I first discovered it I beyond-adored it and was desperate for chapters, but it's slow progress and less interesting arcs lost me a little at one point. However, I never once thought poor of the story's quality and now that things have sped up a little (plus with the anime *o*) it's undoubtedly a topper once again. If you have doubts that it might get boring and cliche it's best to keep pushing on because I don't think I've seen a plot unravel quite this way before. Also I think the current chapters (80-90+) are leading on the best arc yet. Don't give up!

I'm going to keep this review short, seeing as there are tons of others (probably far better ones) - but I will mention Nanami is one of the sweetest and likable characters ever. She's like a lovable older sister, mother and best friend to everyone. Tomoe gets less foxy and more down-to-earth with time (I mostly just love seeing him in his chibi form..). And hats off for the usage of so many different characters. I enjoyed all of them.

Also, Suzuki Julietta has the BEST art. I idolize her.
*sobs* it's so.. flawless.

I'm not going to lie, I was hesitant to begin reading this due to Tomoe's foxy-ness. I decided to read it, though, and while it had a bit of a slow start, I really appreciate the direction this manga is going. While funny, Nanami is a bit useless at first, but her character slowly develops over time, especially as she begins utilizing the powers that she was given. (Granted, I wish there was more focus on her powers, but that is a small complaint.) Yes, Tomoe is stubborn and in denial, but as the story progresses his background unfolds and we can finally get a grasp on his reasoning and emotions.

I also feel as though the side characters are a strong addition; Himemiko, Kurama, and Mizuki are all enjoyable, and each of their arcs add greater depth to the story. And, of course, the artwork is wonderful and I love how the characters are so unique and creatively drawn.

This shoujo is definitely good. The art is wonderful, the plot is not so cliche and the characters are interesting. However, you would find it a little bit annoying how the hero is not exactly sharp enough towards the heroine's feelings towards him. He may appear sharp and mighty but he is blunt when it comes to love. After ALL the things they went through, the hero is still denying his feelings. Sure, he doesn't want anybody to touch his precious master/ land god but that is just it. Poor heroine tries to shake off her feelings but his actions and words pull her back to where she was. This went on up till chapters beyond 70 plus. I was enraged to the point of thinking about ditching the manga. Though, no harm intended. Anyway, this manga is recommended for those shoujo readers who don't mind slow-paced romance development between the hero and heroine.

This is one of my most favorite shoujo manga of all time~!

I love the characters and the art is amazing~!
Nanami is so compassionate, sweet, stubborn, and yet funny!
Tomoe is egoistic, sexy, prideful, and yet so kind/gentle!
Nanami may be weak, but she is also really strong in a way! <3 that about her~!
She takes into consideration of Tomoe's feelings, unlike in most typical shoujo mangas.
The plot may be complicated at times, but that's what makes it awesome!

The plot development is also really good~!
The love is kinda slow, but each chapter is full of fun!
I am always enthusiastically waiting for new updates/raws~!

I don't really understand why people are saying that Nanami is a damsel in distress. It's true that she does need a lot of saving. But what a lot of people don't seem to see if her strength in character. Although she does get upset that Tomoe doesn't love her, she GROWS UP. Her character growth is admirable, especially how she decides that love should not be selfish in constantly seeking the other's praises and returning her love.

Even though a lot of parallels can be drawn with Inuyasha, the plot and characters are much different. Tomoe is less brash and much less stubborn and considerate than Inuyasha. Inuyasha's character is more of a teenaged boy, while you can definitely see the age and maturity in Tomoe when he feels like acting his age. Kagome and Nanami's experiences are even further apart. Nanami's character growth is much smoother and sleeker than Kagome's angst. In some sense, Nanami's fondness to Tomoe's old love is so much more than Kagome can ever do for Kikyo. And if anyone is completely up to date, you can see that that the plot cliche argument is void.

What people don't see is the fact that the repetitiveness of Tomoe saving Nanami is only used for character building and every new story for that is different since Nanami IS in fact growing stronger. If anyone is only seeing that icing over the cake, then they have not looked deep into the story at all.

It promised to be a good story, with nice drawings and a story that could have developed much more, instead, it became VERY repetitive. The characters are flat and the story seems to lead to nowhere, there are chapters that are just to fill up space, it seems to me that until the author can think of a development or real progress in the plot/story.

More mature than Inuyasha

A lot of people have compared this manga to Inuyasha. It's true that it's very similar in many ways.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Kagome and Inuyasha bickered quite a bit and so do Nanami and Tomoe. Inuyasha was kind of rough with Kagome and Tomoe can be rough with Nanami at times. Both lead males come to the rescue of the female when she needs them. There is also the lover in the past and the jewel/Dragon King's Eye being a part of the lead female.


However, I've read Inuyasha all the way to the end and I have enjoyed this manga much more. Nanami is so much stronger than Kagome. She's hardly a damsel in distress. There are a good number of times when Nanami saves Tomoe or saves herself, rather than Tomoe saving her. She IS less strong than Tomoe, but that makes sense, doesn't it? After all, she is human and he is a demon.

Also, Inuyasha and Kagome never really address the fact that she is mortal and he is immortal. This manga explores in depth how that difference can affect their relationship. Nor does Inuyasha ever acknowledge his feelings with the clarity that Tomoe does.

I've read the raws and translations all the way up to ch.85 (check out the spoilers thread at Mangafox.com) and I'm pleasant surprised by this manga. Inuyasha began to disappoint me as the chapters dragged on and Kagome's character hardly got stronger. I think if you read the raws up until the latest chapter, you'll be as thrilled as I am with the depth of this manga and the skill of the mangaka.

P.S: IMO, it's like she read Inuyasha and thought to herself, "pssh, I can do better than that."

Formulaic romance. Main character morphs into damsel in distress character, losing all conviction. Every character is lacks depth. Art is unoriginal and uninspiring. Motivations are lacking or unconvincing.
If you've ever read a decent series, stay away as this twilight-like drivel isn't worth the time.

Really beautiful manga all around. The art is stunning and the characters are likable and believable. Every character has their own clearly defined personality, and over the course of what has been translated so far, they grow and change and develop. The romanced is paced EXTREMELY well; it's not too fast or too slow. Tomoe (the male lead) is just as resistant about a relationship with a human as he should be, but his resistance isn't frustrating and their relationship hasn't dragged on (so far).

Another plus for this manga is the fact that the minor characters are actually interesting, and you genuinely come to care for them--something very rare for shoujo manga. They all get the appropriate amount of screentime (some manga will have multiple chapters dedicated to the most minor characters and it drives me up the wall) and develop along with Tomoe and Nanami.

All in all just a great manga. I can't say enough good things about it. Just wish it would be translated faster!
