Lied, an orphan whose parents supposedly died in an accident, has recently began to live on her own (with her cockatiel ojisan BFF Soprano who can talk due to all the magic of her town of Shall). She is also a pianist for her former orphanage but she’s not really that good. Actually she really sucks at both playing piano and cooking lol. One day she meets a bunch of dudes who happen to have the magical “Falga” powers of famous classical pianists. An evil force called the Forgotten Apostle comes and tries to steal all the sound from the town because of the “evil noise” that’s coming from the darkness inside the performers. Most average people are affected but Lied is safe – so now she joins the musical academy to work with everyone to help restore music back to Shall and defeat the Forgotten Apostle.

This is the fandisk to Hanaoni. There are 4 sections: Bride Excerpts, Honeymoon Arc, Hina Party and a Monologue section from each guy at the end. Additionally in this fandisk, Watase gets a route.
Within the oni (demon) population there are no females. In order to reproduce, the males will pick out human females and then “turn them” into oni. And so, on her 16th birthday our heroine, Asagiri Kanna, is picked up by an oni dude and taken to a special oni school. Everyone there is either a male oni, or a female “bride to be”. The purpose of the school is to let the oni dudes and the human chicks acquaint themselves, so that at least they can first have a “relationship” before the girl is forced to marry. An oni named Kaki has apparently made a deal with Kanna’s mother to spare her life if she handed over her baby when it grew to be 16 years old. Kanna doesn’t seem to care because she’s become an emotionless log as her mother pretty much ignored her for 16 years and kept her in the house so that none of the kids would ever see the “oni seal” on her chest (which is proof that you will be an oni’s bride.) Kaki’s guardian’s aren’t too happy that he’s kept this whole thing a secret all the time either as they were assigned to protect the bride. Kaki doesn’t seem to give a crap despite the fact that due to his guardians not protecting her, she’s had to deal with creepers hitting on her all her life. Suddenly her mother shows up at the school begging to exchange her life to set Kanna free, explaining that she didn’t pick her own life over her child’s but if she had been killed while pregnant, the baby would have died as well. Kanna finally realizes that her mother was “protecting” her all these years and decides she wants to now return the favor so she agrees to comply & be Kaki’s bride. There’s a catch to the whole system though: there are no rules for NTRing meaning that if Kanna wants, she has the option to get with other hot oni mans at the school. 😆
So I left HNK2 for last because I feel like it’s the bastard child of the whole series. The only thing it has going for it is Kazuki Yone is still the artist for it but the characters are different, the seiyuus are different, and the entire Tamayorihime story is twisted in such a weird way that I wonder what they were thinking then they made it. Well they realized the ORIGINAL was a massive failure so actually this is in fact a remake of the Hisui no Shizuku (hence the 真) because apparently they remade all the chars personalities and for some reason kicked off the HNK1 cast off the face of the earth. I’m not about to extend my hiiro marathon and play the original for comparison so you’ll just have to satisfy yourselves with the remake review XD. So this time we have a good girl Suzu (similar to Saya from HNK4). Her mother is the Tamayorihime but she says soon the Ryujin (Dragon God) seal will break and Suzu will be the next in line for the Tamayorihime duties. One rainy night the seal does break and her mother Ayako indeed goes to seal it, sacrificing her life in the process. On top of this, the spirit of the Toyotamahime, who just so happens to be the older sister of the original Tamayorihime (that we never knew) escapes and possesses Suzu’s older sister Mao. So now the village has a half broken seal with demons running around everywhere and Suzu’s gotta train to seal it up. If that wasn’t bad enough, Toyotamahime-Mao comes and tells Suzu that she hated Tamayorihime (Marsha Marsha Marsha!) and wants her to die while fully breaking the seal so she can get the rest of her powers back. Suzu’s like “k sure I’ll die as long as my mans are alive” but Suzu’s childhood friend and guardian Akira won’t be havin’ any of that. Additionally, in HNK2, the guardians are humans and are not gods with inner animal powers. They fight with weapons which they are able to pull out of thin air (lol) if their bond with Suzu is strong enough thanks to the Magatama powers. This also means that if the bond weakens, they will be completely useless bums so Suzu’s got a lot on her plate. With the help of her loli neko guardians Sana & Kana, and manharem (+1 sarcastic token bff chick) she’s got to get her sister back to normal and save Japan!
