The sixth reincarnation of Chikane and Himeko, the eternally reborn Goddesses of Girls Love
, of Kannazuki no Miko
and Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora
fame, also drawn by Kaishaku.
This time, Himeko is cast as a devout Christian priestess-in-training whose parents and "beloved" older sister Chika died in an accident some years ago. One day, after observing a total solar eclipse (taking place 46 years after the previous one
), she finds a beautiful young woman pinned to the wall above the altar of her church with a katana. Astonishingly, the woman is still alive and utters Himeko's name but even more so, she is a spitting image of her late big sister Chika. With a little medical attention, the woman rapidly recovers enough to introduce herself as Chikane and explain that she doesn't remember anything else
except Himeko's name and her own love for her. Said love manifests in repeated seduction attempts
but also in the utter devotion to protect Himeko from all dangers
Said devotion comes in handy when the villainous members of "Nine Days
" show up, targeting Himeko, whom they believe to be the carrier of the "Absolute Sanctuary
" and the "Dragon's Cry
". Now Chikane is pretty much the only protector Himeko has got—not to mention that her resemblance to Chika repeatedly leaves her in a dazed state.
Considering the nature of the series, this manga if it becomes an anime will either be an OVA
or an ONA.
This manga provides examples of following tropes:

- All Women Are Lustful: A lot of the female characters have an "akogare" problem.
- Alpha Bitch: Mirei.
- An Arm and an eye: Homura.
- Ancient Conspiracy: The Nine Days. Apparently, they aim at nothing less that killing God.

- Combat Tentacles: Hayate and her ribbons.

- Interesting as it mirrored Kannazuki no Miko with Oogami fell for Chikane and being good friend with Himeko instead.

- Flashback: The last chapter or two so far.
- Freud Was Right: Protecting Himeko's "Sanctuary".
- From Bad to Worse: The severity of the situation seems to escalate, no matter what the Kagome does.
