Momochi House exists on the barrier between the human and spiritual realms, and Himari is meant to act as guardian between the two worlds. But on the day she moves in, she finds three handsome squatters already living in the house, and one seems to have already taken over her role! What I LOVED about this volume was how the story turned on a dime and went all back history on us. We meet an old friend of Aoi and memories are all mixed up because Aoi has the Nue title. I won't ruin it for you but we learn all about Aoi when he was young (and YES he was as sweet a person then as now...) I loved infused plot like this where we get all the characterization we want but still exciting battles and emotions. I'm totally captured by our characters now and will follow them anywhere. Himari comes into her own actually making a plan and sticking to it rather than reacting in the moment (girl power!) The romance while a slow burner has a spike in this volume that was unexpected and lovely. I couldn't help falling for the little fox spirit boy. And generally being totally captured like Himari in having a happy ending for this friendship. The art has become even richer and more lush. I think there was more time to add backgrounds and depth to the art that wasn't in the early volumes. I'm not sure I'm loving that ( #mangaloverconflicts ), though either way this is is some gorgeous art. The page of the kudagitsune were gorgeously drawn and my favorite page in the entire volume! Well worth the read just to see that... I think what makes this manga so compelling is how it skirts the monster a volume pattern by injecting unexpected outcomes and revelations from the events in the story. Our little fox spirit boy latches onto a startling conclusion about Nue and Yukari makes a jaw dropping revelation! Plus Himari imprints an unexpected friend onto herself. I just wanted to keep rolling along their story... ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Authenticity ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Tension ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Plot ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Art BOTTOM LINE: The potential kept up its momentum!! I'm dying to learn more in volume 5! ______________________ You can find this review and many others on my book blog @ Perspective of a Writer.

Hidaka is cool. And everyone in Momochi house is a wonderful, quirky family! But hmm, Yukari huh? I wonder what’s his deal? He’s been so kind and responsible, is there a dark past to his story? 😲

My Review... I love the slender and graceful looking purple cover of this volume. The Nue and Yukari on the cover show how elegant they are and purple is one of my favorite colors. I am always pleased by the first couple pages in full color. Especially, the full-color page of Chapter 17 with The Nue and Kasha (finally got to see his character in color - he's still handsome and I am not sure if he is either bad or good sometimes). I never took a good look at Himari's school logo/crest before. I noticed that it was a cloud with their name or school written in kanji on it. The design was nice as it fits with the whole theme of the book and series. I was sad to know the backstory of Hidaka and Aoi's past. I was so happy that there was still someone out there who remembered Aoi. I was surprised that the fox spirit, kudagitsune, took the form of Aoi when he was a child and I almost mistook him for a demon or somehow connect to Aoi himself but he wasn't. Furthermore, I was happy that Aoi and Hidaka were able to reunite, though briefly and be happy. I felt sad that Hidaka had ended up forgetting Aoi in the end, but it was for the better and their true feelings were able to get across to each other. Although, it was and still a heart aching scene for me. Luckily, Himari and Hidaka are now friends and he can live his life in peace along with more friends in the future. The Shikigami Zushi makes an appearance again in this volume, although it was minor. I would like to think we get to see more of him. I was confused to why the kudagitsune multiply, but I admit that they are all too cute. Especially, the older brother of the fox spirits, Tamamo and I can agree with what Himari said to Tamamo- "I had no idea you were so cute." I felt sad again that he misses his mother and I think he feels lonely. Also, because the only people who can see them now are those that live in Momochi House. Kasha made a reappearance, but he did not seem so evil to me. I feel like from time to time he does good/bad things or he is mysteriously helping out because he seems to have a lot of secrets and he comes and goes whenever he wants to. In addition, we get an unexpected and accidental confession from Himari to Aoi that I almost felt was too soon in a way, but at the same time right for this moment. Aoi is so innocent that I wanted to know his reply, but I see we are going with the family type of love excuse that is good for now. I feel like Aoi has secrets of his own and I really wanted to know what his thoughts were if he chooses to use the box with the ayakashi fireflies in it. I might have to agree with Kasha that "Aoi... ...Doesn't want to hold the box." I am sort of confused and wondering why though. I became glad that everything ended nicely and everyone seemed happy. The welcoming party for the fox spirits and Tamamo was a nice scene. They all reminisced about their parents and loved ones. I seemed to forget that ayakashi have parents of their own. Also, one of the lower ayakashi that looks like an umbrella, I did not notice that it stood attached to a leg before and its bulging knee. I almost thought that Himari would be sad about her parents because she grew up in an orphanage, but she seemed happy and glad that they left her Momochi house and making all these wonderful memories. I like learning tidbits about the Momochi family and it makes more curious about them even more. When it came down to Yukari and his family. I was shocked to find out that he was born to a normal family and then had mixed feelings of finding out that he became an ayakashi from eating human flesh. Another volume read and off to the next volume. This volume filled me with so many surprises and cuteness that I loved so much. It had its sad moments, but it all ended for the better. So far, I am still not disappointed with this series and I can't wait to find out what happens next.

With each volume, we learn more of Aoi and Himari and their mysteries. At the same time, tantalizing hints demonstrate that there is still quite a bit we don't know about the two main characters (and even the side characters have their secrets). Mangaka Shouoto wisely avoids 'monster of the week' cliches and instead focuses on plot and character development. Story: Aoi wasn't always locked within the confines of Momochi house. Before he wandered in, he had a best friend named Hidaka - who has now grown and shares a class with Himari. But Hidaka is tormented by his failing memory of his friend Aoi - and that friend's mysterious disappearance. That is, until Himari comes to school wearing a ring made for her by Aoi - a ring that brings back Hidaka's memories in a frightening way. For the Nue will not allow Hidaka to remember his childhood friend - or even meet with him again. And Hidaka's family harbors its own connection to the supernatural world. This volume features a complete story arc - of Aoi's childhood friend and the loss of each other when they were young. While there is more character development and worldbuilding between Himari, Aoi, Ise and Yukari, the focus is on Aoi's acceptance of what he gave up when he devoted himself to Momochi House. Shouoto beautifully lays bare the pathos of childhood friends and Hidaka's fear that he was the reason Aoi disappeared from the world. Himari remains dedicated and a good person - the fulcrum upon which the human and supernatural interact. She will run afoul of Hidaka's family's fox spirit and pull another capricious character into the Momochi home. And a visit from Kasha with a box that reveals secrets will lay bare feelings on both sides of the human and supernatural world. In all, another beautiful volume in this expertly crafted story. As with the previous volume, the book ends on a preview of the next story arc. Reviewed from an advance reader copy provided by the publisher.

    why the fox never tried to get what he wanted? anyhow it would have been more interesting if Aoi had really ended up in Momochi House because the fox was following him! and why not talk to his friend for one last time? what was he afraid of when his friend was going to forget everything?

    When I read the first volume, I walked away thinking that this was just a Kamisama Kiss, Vol. 1 knock -off. Now, four volumes in, I realize that it may share some themes and visual similarities, but this is a much sadder, darker story. As the books go on, Aya Shouto delves more and more into the inherent sadness of Aoi's existence, not the least of which is that if it had in fact been Himari who had become the omamori-sama, there would have been no one to forget her and her life within Momochi H When I read the first volume, I walked away thinking that this was just a Kamisama Kiss, Vol. 1 knock -off.

It's this undercurrent of bittersweet sadness that sets this apart from other, similar stories, and that's also what keeps me reading - holding out hope for a happy ending despite the odds.

    The Hayato storyline was incredibly interesting, and definitely more than I thought it would be. Hard to put the volume done because of that! I also liked the reappearance of Zushi in this volume, and the introduction of another yokai that may become important later on. Plus, we found out a very interesting secret at the end of the volume. I'm still curious on what Kasha's motives are though. What bigger tricks does he have up his sleeve? The Hayato storyline was incredibly interesting, and definitely more than I thought it would be.

    The artwork is as gorgeous as ever, which was basically the driving force behind not giving this volume 3*. It wasn't a bad installment, I just think it was probably the least compelling volume in the series so far.

Himari has confessed that she loved Aoi, thanks to the firefly box, but she brushed it off that she loved him as family and it was very evident that Aoi's feelings were hurt as he mentioned that it was probably for the better anyways.

The story is also getting deeper and deeper which is really amazing.

    I've had the first 4 volumes of this series on my shelf for over a year, so I'm glad I finally got around to reading them. While this series has gotten better since the first volume, I don't think I'm going to continue it. I don't particularly like any of the characters, and there's no denying that this series is remarkably similar to Kamisama Kiss -- just not as good. The whole time I was reading these 4 volumes, I kept wishing I was reading Kamisama Kiss instead.

    This is the first time that I am giving this series a a four star. This a petty reason to give a four star, but there was not interactions between certain characters. i felt like the plot of this volume was more prevalent than the characters development. Now with me saying that, there was a little splash of information dropped througout the story about history of a particular character, and it had me a liitle curious. I hope this thread is exlored more.

    The characters in this series really stand out to be. I find sometimes with this type of manga it can be hard to connect with the characters, but not with this one. We have learned quite a bit about Aoi in the past few volumes, but I'd like to learn more about Himari. And, oh boy, was that ever a cliff hanger at the end of this volume!

    This volume has to be my favorite so far! There will be spoilers ahead. Overall I felt sad for Hayato Hadaka. He finally remembers Aoi and then forgets him all together since Aoi does not exist in the human world anymore. Then the fox ayakashi that was going to curse him now stays with his brothers at Momochi house. Needless to say, I am intrigued how this will all go!

    I really liked this one because of the emotions. They were well done. The relationships were the highlight of this one. Mostly platonic but romantic too. The ending was such a cliffhanger.... ARGH. Unfortunately, I had requested only volumes 2 and 4 from my library. I wasn’t able to figure out what happened in 3 except that it was real good. *curses out past self while requesting vol 3*

    This is probably the strongest volume so far. Aoi’s past had an impact on those around him even if their memory of him is gone. The conclusion of Hayato’s arc is a sad one, but because it is the longest story we have had so far, has greater emotional depth. And, that Himari confession is something else. The Ayakashi designs are one of the stronger elements of the art which can be quite static.

    Another cute addition to the series. This time they have to deal with a young fox who has cursed an old friend of Aoi's. If you haven't already read the first three volumes, I totally recommend all four. Looking forward to the next issue. Another cute addition to the series.

    Lmao that was an interesting thing to end on... I'm so sad about Hayato!! I hope he comes back in later volumes. I want to learn even more about Aoi's past now and I kind of want more from Himari's too, although I feel like hers won't be as relevant to the story as Aoi's.
