Quirky take on the magical girl genre. A young man is carving a small statue out of the remnants of a shin-boke-a god tree. It was cut down, and he wanted to use it for his school project.

She's horrified at the tree being cut down, and quickly ensnares him into reigning in defilement-black bugs and creatures-that are appearing at a growing rate.

Don't be fooled by the cover. Nagi is as far from a typical magi

This is a manga based off Shintoism. As a child, Jin carved a shrine maiden from a sacred tree in Kannagi prefecture. When she suddenly comes to life and declares to stamp out impurity (or 'defilements') from people's lives, Jin doesn't know what to do, so announces she is his sister. Jin doesn't know what he is getting himself in for!

Magic and myth combine to make a strange yet entertaining opening to a story.

An odd yet enjoyable first installment.
Awkward, difficult translation. Otherwise I like the concept and characters, though it is a bit cliche.

Awkward translation.

Better by the end; but still rather limp. I wish I liked it more.
