A small shrine resting in a country far to the east, the "Hakurei Shrine".
Many out-of-the-ordinary events transpire here, causing normal people to almost never draw close to the shrine.
On the other hand, there is also a reason that "things that aren't human" never descend to terrorize the Human Village:
because shrine maidens, females with the power to channel the gods, have lived at this shrine for many generations, guarding the gates to other realms such as Hell and Makai where those "things that aren't human" reside.
Much time passed after that - so much time that the effectiveness of the seal began to fade.
The shrine maiden currently living at this shrine has trained her body and mind intensely in order to fight these unstoppable enemies, these "things that aren't human", and prevent them from reaching the Human Village. Even though she knew it was a futile effort, even though she knew her life would be forfeit, she made her way to one of the gates.
The truth is that this shrine maiden is Reimu Hakurei, who always gets caught up in strange things. One of the "things that isn't human" destroyed her shrine, and she flew into a rage. There is only one thing that will quell her anger: the total annihilation of all "things that aren't human"!!
...Well, that's half wrong too.
The real truth is that Reimu Hakurei is actually quite the optimist.
Acting on her whims as always, she figured she'd go and enter one of the gates.
After a while, she realized that only the Hakurei Shrine's greatest treasure, the Yin-Yang Orb, was effective against these non-human creatures.
Reimu "Well, whatever. Things will turn out just fine as long I use the yin-yang orb!"
What sort of fate awaits this shrine maiden?
