Goodreads Synopsis:

Himari Momochi inherits a mysterious house that comes with its own gorgeous demon guardian.

On her sixteenth birthday, orphan Himari Momochi inherits her ancestral estate that she’s never seen. Momochi House exists on the barrier between the human and spiritual realms, and Himari is meant to act as guardian between the two worlds. But on the day she moves in, she finds three handsome squatters already living in the house, and one seems to have already taken over her role!

Himari Momochi inherits Momochi House, an estate which exists on the barrier between the human and spiritual realms. Since his battle with Nachi, Aoi has been unable to transform back from being the Nue. Aoi must recover his lost human memories, and Himari enters the spiritual realm to retrieve them.


Himari goes on a quest to discover Aoi's past, hoping it will let him return to his normal form. It's interesting to see her interactions with the Nue, since he's so different from Aoi. It makes me wonder, though, since it seems like the Nue is actually a different side of Aoi, not a different person all-together. Himari seems very determined to have only Aoi, and not any of the Nue.
We get to see Aoi's past in this volume, as well as meet his parents. It makes me sad for little Aoi, but it also makes me wonder what his parents' view of it is. I'm curious to see what happens next. The series doesn't seem to be ending soon, so I'm curious where it will go next.
