Kojiki tells the tale of a war between gods that threatens to destroy Earth.  Hope for survivals rests with a teenage girl who is oblivious to her connection to the gods, until a fateful trip to Japan.  This is an exciting story about fighting back no matter what the odds.

I did a little research before reading Kojiki and found out that Yatsuhashi was heavily influenced by anime movies when he wrote this book.  I imagined the story like an anime film and would highly recommend the same for anyone else.  The story does a great job of capturing the anime feel; it could easily make the transition to the big screen.

Excellent characters.  Many are a complicated mix of good and bad, and the story shows the difficulties of trying to reconcile past mistakes.

Great storytelling!  I have already picked up the next book in the series: Kokoro.

Kojiki weaves a tale full of complex characters and sobering consequences.

Reading Kojiki is like watching an anime movie in your head.  Great fun!
