Tawa River

Machikado Mazoku

The Demon Girl Next Door.

One morning, fifteen-year-old Yuuko Yoshida wakes up to discover she has sprouted demon horns and a tail! Not only that, she learns from her mom that she has supernatural powers and an important mission—to restore her family’s glory by defeating the local magical girl.

Machikado is set in the Sakuragaoka neighborhood of Tama, Tokyo, the same city which appears in Whisper of the Heart. Many real locations are reproduced, including the banks of Tama River, the hilltop overlook, and Seiseki-Sakuragaoka Station. This map below was featured in the first manga volume release.
