I want to change. I have to!, Both myself, and the future.
But…I want to be a normal girl.
Along the world heritage site, Kumano Kodo, lies a hidden shrine, Tamakura Jinja. Izumiko Suzuhara was raised at the shrine by her grandfather, the head priest, and barely knows anything about the outside world. She's a shy girl with two long braids, and glasses. Whenever she touches a computer or phone, it freezes.
“I want to be a normal girl.”
Then one day, as she worried over the difference between herself and others, her childhood friend, Miyuki Sagara came to Tamakura Jinja, and winds up transferring to Izumiko's middle school?!
--A destiny even Izumiko herself is unaware of quietly begins to move.
