Summary

In a mythical world where humans and gods co-exist, a ceremony marking the new governing princess is about to occur for the first time in 60 years. Only a girl from the Hime Clan may take this position, but the lack of females born to this family means that a boy called Arata must pose for the role. Meanwhile in modern-day Japan, a boy named Arata Hinohara is starting his new life in high school. He wants to put memories of his difficult past behind him, but things aren’t going to be simple when he discovers a mysterious connection to the first Arata...

The Shinsho Kikutsune, Arata Hinohara’s most daunting foe so far, has stolen the hearing of everyone but Arata himself. Bad as this is, it’s made worse when Arata learns that music may be the weapon that can defeat his enemy. Arata and his allies work through this problem and manage to launch an effective assault on Kikutsune, only to have nature violently intervene and force Arata to act to save lives and face the very real prospect of losing the battle!
