So did everyone who read this manga, going by all the comments. :P

I'm surprised, really. Tsundere men usually don't do all that well with the non-shoujo reading public. Though I'm used to and quite like those types, and really like the goddess, so for me the pairing's a natural shoo-in.

So is the only thing that makes this manga not a 'shoujo' manga the artstyle and the lack of flowery tones/backgrounds? I feel like this should be something that could be published in a shoujo magazine, but a lot of people online don't think it's shoujo at all?

^The only thing is where it's published, really. This is being published in Young Ace, a relatively new seinen magazine that is also running things like Blood Lad and CLAMP's resumed Legal Drug.

That makes it not-shoujo by the objective definition. If some editor publish it in a shoujo manga magazine then it becomes a shoujo manga, too.

But since your question is actually "could" it be published in a shoujo magazine, it's a little different stylistically from things you usually get on Ribon, Margaret, or Hana to Yume. If a veteran shoujo mangaka draws this plot and set of characters the vibe would be different here and there. You can think back to how different mangaka "translated" the Densha Otoko story into various genres back when it was still a big fad in Japan.

Of course, many plots/characters of many series would work just fine "as a shoujo" (i.e. being drawn in the common style of the day as witnessed in these major magazines). This isn't Berserk or Vagabond, where the reader would just facepalm and wonder what drugs the editorial department were on if they get themselves published on Ribon for 13 years old girls to read (lol).

I'd actually turn the question around and ask why can't it stay seinen as it is?

I'm fine with it being seinen, I'm just wondering whether there are things that need to be changed in order for it to get 'recognized' as a shoujo manga or to get published in in one. Like, is a little girl going to read it and go, this is not a shoujo manga!

Just the artstyle, the vibe, and some things, really. But things you notice. More sparkles (that's always useful), and I think we'd probably get a less "bratty" portrayal of Inari, who feels and acts like an actual immature girl, and a more typical shoujo romance heroine personality or something.

Oh, and pretty up the boys. Inari's love interest is sparkly enough already, but Touka would probably get a bishounen upgrade.

And maybe a little less of Uka moe.

Otherwise, I don't see why it can't work. Plenty of fantasy affairs on Hana to Yume, and it's not like gods and youkai is an unfamiliar subject there (Kamisama Hajimemashita, Natsume Yuujinchou).

Chapter 25 is out at Shoujo Sense! A nice ch. for Touka x Uka shippers.

I'm somehow hoping Uka suddenly appears in human form (like in the Omake when Touka was younger) as a transfer student at Touka's school.

Spoiler for Uka (Human form):

Really like Uka and the brother's story more than Inari's love life...
