Kinu Himuro (氷室 キヌ Himuro Kinu), nicknamed Okinu (おキヌ), is a ghost of an orphan teenage girl that was sacrificed 3 centuries ago to stop a volcano from erupting. A person that dies this way will usually become the guardian of the mountain, but Okinu wasn't qualified to become a celestial being nor a saint, and is stuck in the mountain until she finds a scapegoat.

She was first encountered by Reiko Mikami and Tadao Yokoshima while they were searching for two ghosts causing chaos at a mountain hot spring, seeing a good opportunity to scape her fate, she tried to kill Yokoshima so he can take her place.

Mikami found that one of the troubling ghosts was a pacific mountain lover, so, as he accepted to become the mountain guardian, she exchanges Okinu`s role with the other ghost, leaving free to go to heaven. However, Okinu didn't knew how to do it, being stuck to the land due to her long stay. Mikami ends up "adopting" Okinu, saying she can send Okinu to heaven in exchange of money.

As she doesnt have the money to pay for her own exorcism, Okinu accepts to become the secretary and errand girl for Mikami, working for 30 yen per day.

Early on in the series, she develops feelings for Yokoshima, wich develops from simple jokes about him being able to stay with her after death if any mission fails, to him giving a high effort to bring her back to life.

Becouse of her age, and due to her ability to be perceived by the living, between the other friendly spirits she is considered a Senpai.

After resurrection Edit

Later in the manga, with the collaboration of Mikami, her present day relatives, the new guard of the mountain, and a strike from Yokoshima`s energy, Okinu is brought back to life as her body was frozen inside the mountain..

After a short adventure, Okinu realizes that after being a ghost for 300 years, she is a natural high skilled necromancer for her ability to understand the spirits' pain, so using a the necromancer's flute, she can control spiritual beings, by playing the flute, putting her words as music onthe instrument.
