Plot Summary

Somewhere in Tokyo, a shut-in named Sasami Tsukuyomi lives with her older brother, a teacher at a nearby school who is a little too affectionate towards her. While she is afraid to go out, she spends her days spying on him. Sasami believes that his wishes might be accidentally modifying the world around him, and that he might hold the power of the ancient Japanese deity Amaterasu. When the gods go crazy, the three Yagami sisters--Tsurugi, Kagami and Tama--team up to revert the world back to normal.


  • Sasami Tsukuyomi -- A hikkikomori and otaku with several different computers in her room. Holds the power of Amaterasu inside herself until she decided she didn't want it. The main character who watches everything from her computer, is afraid of leaving her house.
  • Kamiomi Tsukuyomi -- Sasami's brother, madly in love with Sasami, teaches at a nearby school despite apparently not caring about teaching. There is always a conveniently-placed object in front of his face so it is never seen.
  • Tsurugi Yagami -- the smartest of the sisters, yet still acts the most childlike sometimes. Teaches at the same school as Sasami's brother. Carries a sword when needed. A reincarnation of Amaterasu.
  • Kagami Yagami -- the most non-chalant of the sisters, often sleeps in class, somehow able to craft missile-firing weapons from her body. Crafted from a piece of Amaterasu but raised by an unspecified evil person before Tsurugi found her.
  • Tama Yagami -- the youngest and most ditzy of the sisters, yet incredibly agile and athletic. Another person crafted from a piece of Amaterasu and most likely to be the next reincarnation on Earth.
