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?

I hate to say this, but in the beginning, Tomoe looked like a girl and I was really confused because of that, but I kept on reading because the idea of the story was interesting (I mean, a man getting chased up a tree by a dog and giving his shrine to the girl that rescues him? Plain weird.). I actually had a bunch of manga I was reading at that time and I was switching between them every chapter, but after I got to the middle of the manga, I completely abandoned the other stuff and started on it. Then I reread the manga a lot and sighed and reread it again...
This manga catches your attention with the weird introduction of the heroine and the new role she finds herself in. The artwork might not be great in beginning, but it really improves a lot. The characters develop well too. The whole concept of this manga is built up through the slow story line and it improves itself a lot. Its kinda typical at first though, and hard to pick up.

This manga seems fairly average and ordinary at first glance. I won't lie, when i first heard of it, I thought it would be another average plain shoujo and avoided it. However after watching the anime, (which did have its setbacks), i moved onto the manga seeing as it was still ongoing and I wanted to see some more Tomoe. Let me tell you, the manga is SO much better. Like I said, It's starts off as nothing extraordinary. It has a cute story, VERY likable, interesting and well developed characters. Some people mentioned that the manga was too draggy/long at parts and fillerish. While this is true, I still found the fillerish arcs enjoyable simply because of the characters who made it fun to read. I didn't really care if the main story wasn't going anywhere since the arcs were still enjoyable. Of course, the manga is currently at its peak right now imo, so yes, the story DOES move, and it's a good plot too. Its not just one of those school-life-comedy-no plot shoujos that it MAY seem like at initial glance.

I also want to mention how much I adore the characters. Tomoe- do I really need to say anything? He's so flipping sexy and I love his history with how he became a familiar. Mizuki's is refreshing and compliments Tomoe- he also has a sweet history as well. Akura-Ou is damn sexy too and Im always looking forward to learning more about him. Another one of my personal favorites is the Dragon King..he's hillarious! Finally, there's Nanami. She might seem very ordinary and plain for a heroine, but that's one of her biggest charms. I really like Nanami because she's so ordinary and is aware of it. Even though she thinks that Tomoe, an amazing deity liking her is silly, she doesn't let that stop her from loving him, and is remains honest with her feelings. This part of Nanami I really like. She's relatable and so down to earth! Its really refreshing to have her as heroine.

That being said, definitely check this one out if you love fantasy-shoujo-romances (Think Inuyasha), but make sure to be patient as it IS on the slower side.. not as slow as inuyasha though of course lol.

Gah, one of those mangas that snuggled its way into my heart and staying put. I cannot tell you how cute this manga is smile It's cute, adorable, lovely, heartfelt, (the characters are) brave, funny and so much more. It made me cry and laugh. I can't explain it. It reminds me of Fruits Basket from my childhood days but this one ONE-UPs it haha <3 I'm definitely going to buy it when it's completed. The drawings are so adorable, their emotions are on point. It has great character development. They're very courageous, selfless and sincere (or they grow to be). Some are broken and have lost all hope but Nanami and her gang are so pure hearted. BAH. I CAN'T EXPLAIN. YOU. MUST. READ.

Sigh.. I accumulated 25 chapters..and I couldn't hold back anymore, so now..I've caught up..and left at the most critical point. DAMN YOU CHAPTER 92. DAMN YOUUUUUUU

Sailor Fuku ni Onegai!

Sailor Fuku ni Onegai! was the reason I picked up this series, but outside of a girl becoming a god, there's not much else in the way of similarities. Oh, and handsome familiars. Honestly, it feels a bit like early Inuyasha where we keep getting new characters and every other person is in love with your lead female, lead male is brash and beautiful and technically forced into his position. Oh, and the shrines and youkai.

What I would consider the primary plot is being treated as a reoccurring subplot at the moment (to chapter 87). Some people may not like this, but I love it. I love that we have all sort of little arcs building the characters bit by bit while having hints of the past and future coloring the background. In a really big arc at the moment and I'm extremely eager to see how it works out. An anime began in the fall of 2012, so hopefully it will gain popularity and continue a bit longer. (The anime is pretty good. On point for the most part, though episode 13 is pretty different from the manga chapters which cover that arc.)

(Notes: Tomoe's chibi form and the Little Dragon crying are about the cutest things ever.)

Luvvvvv this series. It's just so interesting <3 I really hate dragged out mangas, since the plot would just fall apart and become boring. But KH, even if it is really long, the story arcs are so interesting and unique, I always feel so satisfied. And the art, at first it wasn't really appealing to me..don't kill me KH fans, I was just reading mangas with super pretty art, I have really high standards..but it improved so much, now the art meets my expectations and beyond. Such an interesting manga, not disappointing at all. Really beautiful, for those who dropped it, please continue it. It's so lovely. I think in ch 6 is when the art got better, or a bit different. There is also an anime, the art is so pretty there as well. The author improves, I promise.

Awesome manga><. every time i read this manga, it always leave my heart pounding.I love Tomoe‘s 'do i like her or not' attitude. Nanami is also such a lovable character, a little violent, but that is necessary for a romantic comedy manga. I used half a day to read from the first chapter to the 81st chapter. It's a manga that is hard to put it down

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.
