Kumamiko: Girl Meets Bear

Machi is a girl who serves as a shrine maiden (miko) at a Shinto shrine enshrining a bear (kuma) in the recesses of a certain mountain in Japan’s northern Tohoku region. Machi’s guardian is a talking bear named Natsu, and one day Machi tells him that she wants to go to a school in the city. The worrywart Natsu then gives Machi — who is ignorant about the ways of the world — a set of trials that she must pass in order to be able to survive in the city.
