When Nanoka is transported back in time to a supernatural early 20th century, she gets recruited by aloof exorcist Mao. What thread of fate connects them? Together, they seek answers...and kick some demon butt along the way!

Nanoka, Mao, and his helper Otoya investigate the strange cult of Priestess Shoko in hopes of bringing her to justice, but cursed dolls and scrolls of eternal life may be more than they bargained for. Will the priestess’s doomsday prophecy come true? Back in the present, Nanoka and friend-zoned Shiraha do some historical research that uncovers a cataclysmic event yet to occur in Mao’s timeline. Then Mao’s curiosity gets him on the wrong side of a group of bloodsuckers and in need of a rescue by Nanoka—again!

I started watching the anime but as always I wanted to read the books first and so here I am reading something different than what I usually read. We’ll see if I like it.

The journey to 100 friends begins with a single conversation.

Socially anxious high school student Shoko Komi’s greatest dream is to make some friends, but everyone at school mistakes her crippling social anxiety for cool reserve. With the whole student body keeping its distance and Komi unable to utter a single word, friendship might be forever beyond her reach.

School is out for the summer, and Komi is still getting used to this strange new world of having friends. She’s discovering that friendship doesn’t automatically save you from awkward situations with people, but the more time she spends with her friends, the easier it all seems. And to her astonishment, for the first time in her life Komi isn’t anxious for summer to end.
