Himeko is taken in after the destruction of the dormitory by her friend and fellow priestess Chikane Himemiya (the Tsuki no Miko, or Priestess of the Moon), and tries to get on with her life as much as possible even as the two girls attempt to learn the ritual which will summon Ame no Murakumo and come under periodic attack by the eight "necks" of Orochi, henchmen of the evil god, who run the gamut from serious (Tsubasa) to traitor (Tsubasa's younger brother, Oogami Souma, who fights on the side of the Priestesses) to downright goofy (Nekoko, the catgirl, who [[spoiler:levels a fifty square kilometre region of coastal Japan for the lulz]].)

It was one of those days for the innocent Kurusugawa Himeko: Wake up late on your [[DangerousSixteenthBirthday sixteenth birthday]], rush to get ready and get to school... Then an ancient evil wakes up with designs on world destruction, a couple of anthropomorphic robots trash the school dormitory, and life as you've known it is over.

Himeko is taken in after the destruction of the dormitory by her friend and fellow priestess Himemiya Chikane (the Tsuki no Miko, or Priestess of the Moon), and tries to get on with her life as much as possible even as the two girls attempt to learn the ritual which will summon Ame no Murakumo and come under periodic attack by the eight "necks" of Orochi, henchmen of the evil god, who run the gamut from serious (Tsubasa) to traitor (Tsubasa's younger brother, Oogami Souma, who fights on the side of the Priestesses) to downright goofy (Nekoko, the catgirl, who [[spoiler:levels a fifty square kilometre region of coastal Japan for the lulz]].)

Though ''Kannazuki no Miko'' attempts to fool viewers into believing that it could be a schoolyard drama (which it is, to an extent), and then a mecha action show, the truth is that it is, essentially, a love story. (Actually, a rather simple LoveTriangle, wherein Himeko has some feelings for both Chikane and Oogami Souma, but initially believes that those two are a couple, while both of them hold romantic feelings for Himeko.) The strange blend of seriousness and humor in the series makes for a very "love it or hate it" reaction from viewers.

* EarnYourHappyEnding: First it is depicted as a strong BitterSweetEnding, however [[spoiler: at the end of the series, Himeko implicitly makes it clear that she still hopes to meet that "only person who is waiting for her somewhere in this world", after which the epilogue strongly implies that already as being adult women, she and reincarnated Chikane meet in a new world And again fall in love with each other as Himeko's last words in the work say.]]

** In turn, the manga has a slightly sadder version, [[spoiler: where Chikane is still dying, but in the epilogue she already reincarnates with Himeko as twin sisters, beating the popular Japanese legend that StarCrossedLovers in the next life will be twins. And although the whole epilogue carries a few LesYay and IncestSubtext, Himeko's words show that they are happy and "always be together."]]

* DestroyedDeity: Orochi

* HeroicRROD: [[spoiler:Souma's Orochi-granted powers eventually [[TakenForGranite petrify him]].]]

* {{Reincarnation}}: Himeko and Chikane. While the necks of Orochi return each time, there is no indication that they manifest in the same people. The two priestesses are an example of both the "destined love that survives death" and the "duty that survives death" type of this trope.

* VehicularTurnover: A variant, as Chikane steals Soma's mecha and uses it against the other Orochi necks, and later, Himeko and Soma themselves.

* MayDecemberRomance: Implied in the epilogue: Assuming that [[spoiler:it happens during Himeko's current lifetime (rather than some future reincarnation) and that Chikane was reborn immediately after her death]], they have at least 16 years' age gap between them.

On top of all this, Himeko is also the ''Hi no Miko'' (Priestess of the Sun) one of a pair of miko (shinto priestesses), destined to summon the Sword God Ame no Murakumo no Tsurugi to defeat the evil god [[{{Orochi}} Yamato no Orochi]].

** The whole series itself shares many plot points with ''HadesProjectZeorymer'', especially the Orochi Necks with the members of the Hakkeshu in the Zeorymer's [=OVAs=].

* HumongousMecha: If they took the mecha part seriously, it'd fit right in ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'' (for some weird reason). [[WordOfGod According to the creators,]] the series is an homage towards HadesProjectZeorymer.
