Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Like most rural Japanese villages, Tamano celebrates an annual festival in honor of its own own local deity, the Marimo (seaweed ball) guardian spirit. But unlike most such communities, the Marimo festival includes a Virgin Sacrifice. Nothing bloody or horrific, mind: It's a purely symbolic sacrifice that involves dressing a local maiden in ceremonial robes and making her spend the night in a boat out on the lake. No muss, no fuss, no blood, and so far, no casualties.Unfortunately, this year there's a problem. This year's sacrificial maiden, Akoya Nota (Ako to her friends) is prone to seasickness and hates boats. So her beloved twin brother Mao decides he'll go in her stead and protect his more outgoing sister just as Ako has always protected him. Mao dons the robes and boards the boat while Ako is distracted. They may not look anything alike but they're about the same size and in the robes and the dark who's to know? Well, apparently the God knows, because there's a loud booming sound followed by a dense fog, and when the boat drifts back to shore the next morning, Mao's been turned into a girl!Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })

Brother–Sister Incest: Ako's interest in Mao wasn't entirely healthy, but it apparently wasn't acted upon or reciprocated either, as Mao has no clue.

Always Identical Twins: Invoked by one of Mao and Akoya's classmates, who wonders why the two aren't more alike now that Mao is a girl too.

Contrived Coincidence: The festival and the arrival of the letter just happen to coincide on Ako and Mao's 16th birthday. Though it's reasonable to assume that the festival was specifically scheduled for Ako's birthday since offering the maiden as a sacrifice on her 16th birthday is the whole point of the ceremony. Also, Ako and Mao being born the same day despite not being real twins.

A-Cup Angst: Ako, but only after she learns that her "brother" needs a larger bra size than she does.

Big Sister Instinct: Ako has always protected Mao...except this once, and the guilt is tearing her apart.
