Description

On the outskirts of Utsuwa City is a shrine, where a boy named Yue was born and raised. One day, led by his childhood friend Kurogitsune, he goes to play at the big winter festival. Brilliantly lit paper lanterns, noisy human figures. Seeing the outside world for the first time in his life, Yue comes across two mysterious boys. When he returns to the mountain he informs the shrine mistress Mikoto of what happened, and she tells him this......to prepare for "The Meal."

Description

The protagonist is a carefree young man, living life at his own pace. Having never left the temple he was born and raised in, Yue’s norm is filled with the supernatural, such as shape-shifting fox spirits and talking, flying fish. He is often tired and notorious for sleeping while standing and even passing out in random places. However, he’s troubled by dreams filled with red camellia. Yue always carries a fox mask which was supposedly given to him by Kurogitsune.

Description

Kurogitsune (literally “black fox”) is a feisty and excitable fox spirit usually found in the company of Yue. He can take either a fox or human form, although he retains his ears and tail. As a resident of the temple, Kurogitsune’s role is to protect Yue. He clearly knows something about Yue’s past, but casually deflects any questions. Unlike Yue, Kurogitsune occasionally descends from the mountain into town alone. However, he is not fond of humans, only their food.

Description

A mysterious man with elaborate facial markings who casually dons what appears to be a bloody fox tail muffler. Sagano seemingly knows a good deal about both Yue’s identity and the source of Yue’s troubled dreams, but he discloses no information. Sagano is often seen with a cold smirk on his face. Kurogitsune notes that the only time Sagano doesn’t appear dangerous or threatening is when he's eating.

Description

Akiyoshi is a high school boy who is sensitive to the supernatural. Thus, he fancies himself as a protector of the town. In reality, Akiyoshi is an awkward boy who wears a mask to curb his allergies. Believing he senses a fox spirit inside of Yue, Akiyoshi is wary, yet still drawn to him. To Yue, Akiyoshi appears as a distinguishable human being, meaning they share a special fate…

Description

Tsubaki is a high school boy who hates the red flowers he was named after. He lives with his dad and his younger sister Hina in a house surrounded by camellia. At the winter festival, Tsubaki stood out from all the faceless people and caught Yue’s interest. Both Tsubaki and Kurogitsune seemed nervous about this encounter, but Tsubaki quickly recollected himself. Aloof to a fault, Tsubaki keeps everyone at a comfortable distance. Sagano offhandedly commented that Tsubaki is a liar, even to himself.

The god of the temple. Although she looks like a young girl, Mikoto is an old, powerful spirit. She has 8 tails visible, one short of being a nine-tailed fox spirit. Mikoto’s orders are absolute to the temple residents. However, she dotes on Yue. When she learned Yue found people of interest after he snuck to town, Mikoto retracted her ban. Her new orders are for Yue to become close to those people, ominously stating they are a necessity to Yue.
