From Storm in Heaven:
Touko Hanamori is the young successor to the Hanamori family's line of priestesses. What she longs for, however, is to have a normal life--to have a boyfriend, go on dates, and live like a normal girl would. A new job introduces her to a handsome young man, but will this be the start of a blooming romance...or is there something she doesn't yet realize?

Kinda confused...

Ok, I love the art, one of the best I've seen, but the plot was confusing in some ways (maybe my lack of sleep is talking here XD). As well, for the romance department, its cute *smug*, but kinda sudden. I wish it was longer, so that the romance can drag a couple of chapters at least, but it's an OK story nevertheless...

Probably the first thing that struck me was how pretty the art is - aside from the characters all being drawn very nicely, I was impressed with the intricate details in the background, from the brick roof tiles of surrounding houses to stalks of wheat in the fields. I wasn't originally very interested in shrines, priestesses or Japanese mythology, but there were some very fascinating details incorporated into each of Touko's "cases."

Having mentioned "cases," it's probably obvious that this series is a bit episodic. The description only mentions the job she takes on in the first chapter - there are a few more that follow, and she tackles different supernatural elements or deities in them, though the emphasis is actually more on Touko's character development.

Touko's nowhere near as frivolous and shoujo-y as the description up there makes her sound; she's actually rather down-to-earth and practical, particularly about money matters (because she's poor and her grandma's unfortunately addicted to spending money on idol boybands, LOL). We also gradually find out a lot more about her constant companion and seemingly-casual suitor, Yuuma. They have a bit of childhood history together, which turned out to be really cute.

Overall, this was quite enjoyable! I liked the characters, the supernatural stories and the smattering of romance. Like some of the previous commenters mentioned, this is not for people looking for something exciting with an overarching plot, but if you're in the mood to appreciate a quiet, simple story, this is just the thing.

I'm not that into shrines, but this story balanced the weight of shrine facts with a simple, but cute story about a girl searching for love. It is not bad, neither brilliant.

@shoujo_forever mentions that the art has 90s-features, but I still think the mangaka manages to give it a bit more modern look.

Worth reading once. But it is a slow-paced, informative slice-of-life shoujo story, so skip it if that discription doesn't suit your taste.

Well, firstly, I really liked the priestess theme. If you're interested in Japanese culture, it's worth reading just for that. Also, the art is great. When the protagonist dances, it's just really beautiful. However, the plot was kind of all over the place, it was more like each chapter was a stand-alone story and the only things in common were the main character and the guy who was always with her. Overall it was just kind of unsatisfying, too short to do anything particularly interesting, and I wasn't too fond of the fantasy element - I know since it's about traditional Japanese culture the folklore would come up but I would probably have preferred a slice-of-life story, just learning a bit more about being a priestess.

The plot is OK nothing that interesting...then again, I'm not a fan of shrines and all...I find them all a bit boring..About character development, it's not my forte but it ends the way I hope so I was a bit happy with that but I don't see what people call 'development' though and about the character itself, I like Yuuma lol and Touko's grandma is childish xD The art surprised me...It is pretty with the detailed bg and swish-swosh of the dance but >_> it looks like 90-ish maybe it's the hair? But still it's pretty
Depends on the people but I wouldn't recommend this to anyone since I felt bored reading this but maybe it's just me...though my fav chap is chp 3 and 4...that's the most interesting for me biggrin
