Synopsis: Our unlucky protagonist, Jin, uses the trunk of a sacred tree to carve a statue for a school project. When he takes it outside, to his surprise it begins absorbing the surrounding earth and transforms into, hold your breath on this one, a girl! So like all similar setups this guardian deity is pretty pissed that her tree was cut down and lives with Jin while she takes out her anger on squashing bugs....er, cleaning the "Impurities". ( - MAL )

Catie's Thoughts: A mostly benign, cute series. Not as SUPER moe as some out there, but definitely in the genre. There really isn't anything particularly stand-out about the show that would make me want to sing its praises or groan in agony. The animation is pretty, the character designs consistent - and I do have to admit I laughed my ass off at the wand being stuck to the center of the kotatsu table. 

I do admit that the show feels aimless. It starts out like it has a grand mission to accomplish, and just kinda wanders around and never really gets to the point. The climax of the series feels like, well, not quite what the show had been building toward, but I would wager that on this being just a one-off season to satiate manga fanatics with no intention of following through to greater story lines.

Would I buy it? Nope, not really interested.
