Shy 15-year-old Izumiko has trouble fitting in. Not only does she live a sheltered life with her grandfather at the local shrine, but modern devices like computers and cell phones crash whenever she touches them. When a bully from her childhood – the handsome but prickly Miyuki – enrolls in her school, their lives become involuntarily entwined. As Izumiko learns she is the last vessel of a goddess, Miyuki is forced to serve as her guardian. Although the two fail to get along at first, their meeting marks the beginning of a shift in Izumiko’s destiny.
