Miko is a shrine maiden who has never had much success at seeing or banishing spirits. Then she meets Kagura, a sexy demon who feeds off women’s feelings of passion and love.

My Thoughts


Review covers 28 chapters 

Yup, I finally finished this story. I mean the last 2 volumes have been lying on my bedside table since the end of October. And I finally read them after my midterms were finished. Yes, it’s the end of November while I’m writing the review. Let me start from the beginning. There are only 6 volumes, 18 chapters, however, right now there are only 14 chapters uploaded on mangafox and mangahere. But do not be discouraged as Viz media has taken it under its “wing” so if you need you can get all volumes. That’s what I did, though I only bought last 3. But let me end this boring talk and start talking about the story itself.

If you’ve been reading my blog you know that Mayu Shinjo is one of my favourite authors and I have already covered quite a lot of her works that are on my favourite list. Mostly I love her adult works, and though this one is a not in such a daring form, it still is in the adult section, or I could say in the entrance to the adult section. The story is about a young priestess who by a chance banishes the real demon, and he to take his revenge stays next to her to eat her up. Yup, this is your demon x priestess romance. But trust me it’s fun, with lots of action and you wouldn’t want to put it down. I remember I was sulking for a year to get new updates until I finally ordered the last volumes.

Miko and Kagura are awesome characters. Especially Kagura, he reminded me of Sakuya from Sensual Phrase, and in one of the chapters he really is compared to Sakuya. But we are not talking about Sakuya here; let me get beck to Kagura. He’s the demon in the flesh and that’s his incredible charm. He’s hot, I remember my friend who has no idea about manga was drooling when she saw me reading. You can never get bored with him and with mini Kagura. And the real fun is in the last 2 volumes, as the relationship between Miko and Kagura finally reach that point. Are you sure you want to miss this fun ride? Well, this story is all yours! And you’ll love how it all ends! 

Enjoy it to its fullest and don’t forget to share your thoughts below! Stay tuned for more reviews as well as promos. Don’t miss your next favourite book or manga! Happy reading!
