The game is an RPG (like other titles in the Kagura series) with roguelike elements. Mitaka Rin lends her voice to the game’s main heroine; she’s a voice actress who has given her talents to various adult games over several years. She also produces music on her own YouTube channel as well. Shivarune handled the localization of the game.

The game is available on DLSite for 4,400 yen and on Steam for $14.99. Currently, the game is on a 20% discount so grab it while it’s hot! There’s an 18+ patch available on Johren and Debonosu Works’ website as well. If you want to follow for future releases or updates on this work, I would also advise you to follow Debonosu on Twitter.


In a quiet forest, far from any settlement, there lives a girl named Kuon Makami.
Having lost her mother not long ago, she spends her days alone with the wolf pup who is her best friend.

But the peaceful times come to an end when a strange pall falls over the forest, bringing with it occasional incursions of dark spirits.

Determined to find the source of the problem and stop it, Kuon begins training as an exorcist shrine maiden and sets out to brave whatever dangers lie within the depths of the woods…



A girl who lives in a mountain shrine, secluded from the mortal world. Cheerful, straightforward, and pure of heart, she hasn’t encountered another human being since her mother died, which has left her remarkably naive.

Luckily, she’s also a demigod, sired by the deity Makami-no-Okami, and trained in swordsmanship and other arts by her mother, an exorcist miko. Although a newcomer to the realm of exorcism, her bloodline lends her impressive potential—if she can only learn to harness it.
