When Negi decided to attend university in Tokyo this spring, he was coerced by his grandfather to take care of a small shrine while he was there. After finishing the general cleaning, all that was left was the small pond at the back of the shrine grounds. He looked up at the blooming cherry blooms as he swept the small shrine on the banks on the pond and thought that a tranquil life like this wouldn’t be bad either.
“Thank you for making everything clean. My name is Swati.
Are you the priest of this shrine? I look forward to being with you!”
A girl appeared before him, basked in shimmering light and surrounded by cherry blossom petals. It was an unexpected encounter, like she had descended from the sky. It was from that moment that a brand new story begins.
