Child of Kamiari Month follows Kanna, a girl who is offered the chance to meet her deceased mother by a deity’s familiar. To do so, Kanna will have to travel to the city of Izumo in Shimane prefecture, with the demon descendant Yasha standing in the way of her goal. The story will involve the month of Kamiarizuki/Kannazuki, a time where it is believed that deities leave their shrines from across Japan to gather at Izumo.

Melvyn originally wanted to write about video games, and he did so for a few years, starting from his college days. He still writes about video games sometimes, but now focuses on anime-related news content and the occasional review. Some of his free time is spent self-learning Japanese, both out of interest in the language and because English-translated light novels and manga are expensive. Every anime season, Melvyn looks forward to discovering new standout episodes and OP/ED animation sequences, as well as learning about the storyboard artists and directors behind them.
