Kuraki has taken his grandfather’s ancient sword to the Shinnagi festival for an ancient cleansing ritual, and finds himself inexplicably drawn to a beautiful shrine maiden. As night falls, the priestess is revealed to be Nanachi, the son of the guesthouse Kuraki is staying in. The bond between the two is strengthened as they discover they share the ability to see spirits and use the ancient Japanese magic of Izumo. However, on the night of Nanachi’s initiation as a shaman, Kuraki accidentally sees a ritual sacrifice that is an attempt to break the curse of Susanoo, and becomes the target of the newly instituted and blood-thirsty leader...
