I enjoyed the story and don't mind the challenging presentation. While the yuri is understated, it is clear that Yukiji had a special place in her heart for Tsubomi since they met when they were young, even though Tsubomi didn't realize it wasn't Chitose until they met again. I would have liked more of an actual pairing at the end, but it was still a good read.
i think this story would make an excellent anime...they could flesh it out with more shikigami encounters, and elaborate on some of the back story etc...and then the core of the story...I can see like episode one being super ambiguous and like in episode 2 or even 3 THEN you find out that "kendo-club-kun" is a tiny fox shikigami ^_^ ... it's got a bunch of really great parts and story that would make a fantastic anime....and of course you can't go wrong with the requirement of "kissing scenes" yes-yes it would make a fantastic yuri or subtext anime....
and the bl and yuri ending would totally cement it into fandom!!! does anyone know any good anime producers, oh and I need Imamura Youko senseii's contact info too,
