Rika Subara (須原 里香,Subara Rika?) is a 13-year-old second year middle school student of Minoseki Academy currently undergoing specialized courses in Shinto priesthood. She knew that a childhood friend of hers, a Shinto priest's son who performs the duties of moving noro from one shrine to the other, took entrance examinations for middle school and, wanting to enroll with him in the same school at the same course, obviously took the challenge of entering Minoseki. She excels in academics. On the other hand, she is still getting used to the environment of the campus amid horror stories of Minoseki Academy being a place where "slashing and being slashed" is commonplace.
