Manga: Maga Tsuki

An ongoing Harem/Comedy manga.

One day, Yasuke Arahabara was working up the courage to confess his feelings for his childhood friend Akari Inamori. It was the perfect opportunity, since the two of them were going to eat dinner alone together at his family's shrine. Before dinner, he rushes through the daily shrine rituals and accidentally breaks a sacred mirror.

Tsuhime Seori, a goddess who looks like a cute girl, curses him for it, and now he will die if he's ever separated from her. All too late, he learns that she's a goddess of misfortune, and horrible things happen around her whenever she's upset. Will he be able to get the goddess to lift the curse? And how will he ever explain this to Akari?
This manga contains example of:

  • Absolute Cleavage: Orihime's goddess dress fails to cover the top portion of her breasts.
  • Accidental Pervert: Despite his Chivalrous Pervert status, Yasuke gets luckier when he's not trying to peek or cop a feel.
  • Attractive Bent-Gender: Yasuko, the female version of Yasuke.
  • Bad Powers, Good People: Orihime is a goddess of misfortune whose presence brings bad luck and whose return to the world cost Yasuke his soul. She's as sweet and innocent as can be, and desperately wants to free Yasuke of her curse on him.
  • Barbie Doll Anatomy: Though certain chapters do go full nipple.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Why Orihime and later Hinata develop feelings for Yasuke.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Yasuke and Akari, to an irritating degree. Sadly, the two are just too damn embarrassed to come clean, too afraid of rejection and too scared of wrecking everyone's friendship. Naturally, the goddesses showing up complicates matters.
    • Izuna lampshades this to Akari's (and Orihime's) face when she finally gets Yasuke's soul since, out of the entire harem, she's the most honest with her feelings.
    • Actually, it's kind of justified in Yasuke's case. The curse put on him makes confessing to her probably something that could potentially end up making Orihime unhappy, which is kind of a bad thing to do to the Goddess who put the curse on him in the first place.
  • Childhood Friend: Guess.
    • Childhood Friend Romance: Wanted by both parties, but a certain goddess of bad luck derailed that route. Or, from another perspective, forced the issue.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: Yasuke, of course. He absolutely refuses to do anything perverted with regards to his childhood friend. The other girls are fair game, though, provided he can get away with it.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: The Kitsune spirit of the mountain (Given the alias of Izuna Amitake) is rather territorial.
  • Clueless Chick Magnet - Idiot Hero: Yasuke, and he damn well knows it.
  • Cool Big Sis: Miyano. While cool, she's also a completely terrifying Manipulative Bitch, who has no problem burying her little brother under a mountain of debt for starting all this mess.
    • Orihime is also Hinata's cool big sis.
  • Deliberately Cute Child: Yasuke, temporarily morphed into a baby in chapter 30, naturally uses his new-found cuteness to peep and leer at the girls.
  • The Ditz: Orihime can come off as this, due to being ridiculously clueless as to how the world works.
  • Exact Words: When Yasuke tells Akari, Hinata, and Izuna to not follow him on his date with Orihime in chapter 25, they do just that. And go out eating...at all the places he just happens to be taking Orihime.
  • Going Commando: After finding a pair of panties on top of some towels in chapter 14, Yasuke sets out to solve the mystery of who isn't wearing them. Turns out all three were going without.
  • Harem Series: Endlessly lampshaded by every boy in the school.
  • It's All My Fault: Orihime with regards to Yasuke losing his soul. And again later when she works out that Yasuke and Akari had feelings for one another.
  • Kiss of Life: Repeated as necessary.
  • Kitsune: The deity of the mountain, later dubbed Izuna.
  • Light Is Not Good: Hinata, despite being Amaterasu-no-omikami, sun goddess and the principal deity of all Japan, has a mile wide manipulative streak and isn't above serious threats to get what she wants.
  • MacGuffin Girl: The possessor of Yasuke's soul. Also an enforced Clingy MacGuffin.
  • New Transfer Student: The cover story devised to explain Izuna's sudden presence. The fact that she appears in the middle of a mountain field trip doesn't go unnoticed by the other students.
  • Pet the Fox: When Orihime gets Yasuke's soul again, Izuna breaks down crying because she thinks Yasuke won't love her and she'll disappear. Hinata flicks her on the forehead, transferring power to Izuna while stating it's her duty as chief goddess to protect other gods.
  • Post-Kiss Catatonia: Curious as to why everyone refuses to explain the meaning behind a kiss (mainly out of juvenile embarrassment), Orihime kisses Hinata. Hinata is totally stunned.
  • Reason Why You Suck Speech: Izuna gives one to Orihime and Akari, the former for not having confidence to love Yasuke, and the later for not having to courage to admit her feelings. She states how unlike those two, she is honest with both herself and Yasuke right after taking in his soul for herself.
  • Sacred First Kiss: Happens three times, once for each heroine.
    • Orihime doesn't hesitate in surrendering her lips to revitalize Yasuke but only because she had no idea that kisses were anything but a way to bring people back to life.
    • Akari doesn't realize that the kiss is necessary to bring Yasuke back until Orihime spells it out for her. When Yasuke asks why she's so flustered she decks him.
    • Hinata tries to get away without kissing him, but her cop-out is only partially successful. Yasuke only becomes fully functional after she kisses him for real.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Connections!: Miyano has some mysterious pull over pretty much any character in the manga. She frequently uses these connections to bail Yasuke out of trouble.
    • Heck, she has clout over the AUTHOR.
  • Soul Jar: Essentially what Orihime functions as. Since she contains Yasuke's soul, he can't separate from her. Soul holder is later transferred to Akari, thanks to Hinata.
    • And transferred to Hinata a few chapters later.
      • Eventually, the jar winds up being the girl who wants Yasuke the most at that given time. Naturally, it's usually the loneliest one.
  • Squee: Hinata's reaction to discovering shoujo manga.
  • Unlucky Everydude: Yasuke, but with a better reason than most. Orihime's curse on him gradually grows stronger, meaning that he's slowing going to become a Doom Magnet.
  • Unwanted Harem: For Yasuke, this is played terribly straight. Ever since all this started, the entire male student body has wanted him dead out of jealousy. Moreover, the only girl he has true feelings for is Akari (natch), who is incapable of being honest about her own affection for him. This makes the dilemma of making the goddesses happy all the more complicated.
