• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

A Manga by Minene Sakurano about Tasuke Shichiri, a 14-year-old boy that receives a gift from his father, Tarousuke, who is traveling in China. The gift is a ring, the Shitenrin, and those pure of heart may gaze into it and receive a moon spirit called Shaorin. Her purpose is to protect her master. Later the spirit Ruuan comes to him from a flute-like object when he gazes into it. Her job is to make her master happy. Hilarity Ensues as Tasuke tries to adjust to life with his new housemates and attempts to work up the nerve to tell Shao that he's fallen for her.

The principal cast is composed of the following characters:

The series was adapted into a 22-episode TV Anime series, which proved popular enough to spawn an eight-episode OVA sequel, Denshin Mamotte Shugogetten, which covers some manga material left untouched by the TV series (most notably, the addition of the third spirit, Kiryuu, to the cast). While the anime remains unlicensed, the manga was picked up by Raijin Comics (and printed as Guardian Angel Getten), which folded due to financial troubles while only on the fourth volume; Tokyopop picked up the license and started the translation over from the beginning.

Tropes used in Mamotte Shugogetten include:
