Pocky is a shrine maiden who lives in a remote mountain shrine. She once saved the Seven Gods of Fortune, who had been kidnapped by monsters. She is a very kind girl who does not discriminate between people and monsters, but shows no mercy to those with bad hearts. Rocky is a raccoon who lives in the mountains behind the shrine with his fellow monsters. He is Pocky's best friend and has come down the mountain to tell her about the strange happenings in the forest. The new characters are:

  • Ame-no-Uzume: A goddess from the Land of the Kami and founder of the shrine maidens, she lends her power to Pocky, who has wandered into her world from the future.
  • Ikazuchi: Also known as a Thunder Beast, this monster weasel is feared for her tremendous power that causes intense weather changes. However, her power isn't strong enough against Black Mantle, who has taken her prisoner!
  • Hotaru Gozen: An unrivaled female samurai who has been brought back to life by Black Mantle to be used as his pawn.
