An ordinary student who’s rather clumsy turned out to be the pillar of an empire in a magical book. Yet this sudden turn of event didn’t quite favor Miaka when she had to go up against her best friend who accepted the highest position of a rival empire.

What started as a magical journey inside the mysterious Book of the Four Gods became a nightmare when quickly after landing in a completely different place, they were welcomed by an unwelcoming group of men who believed them as foreigners.

Saved by a handsome man named Tamahome, Miaka and Yui learn more about the place and the destiny of the Konan Empire upon the hands of its priestess. Miaka took the role of the priestess in order to get back to her own world after Yui was unwillingly brought outside the book.

As priestess of Suzaku, Miaka had the service and protection of seven star warriors that would eventually help her in summoning Suzaku and win the war against the Kutou Empire.

Miaka encountered the biggest hurdles in her quest to revive Suzaku but her steadfast determination and optimism did not fail her. She was able to revive Suzaku and even in the end, chose not to be selfish when she sacrificed the idea of having her beloved man at her side for the sake of saving the real world.
