Divine Protection (加護, Kago) is Episode 5 of Hakkenden: Tōhō Hakken Ibun anime series, which aired on February 2, 2013.


Due to the new moon, Sosuke sleeps for an abnormally long time while Murasame becomes strangely quiet. Shino then bumps into a white-haired, red-eyed girl from the Snake Clan, Mizuki Ayane, that occupies the other half of the abode. In an attempt to become friends, Hamaji sends Shino to the other side with a basket of flowers, to which he angers Mizuki Ayane's guardian god, Hibiki. Shino is saved by Sosuke, who almost cuts off his arm as a peace offering, and is rescued by Ayane. The four of them start to talk about themselves, which compels Ayane to befriend Hamaji. There is a town festival, however, Hibiki is reluctant to let Ayane out of her sight, but eventually gives her consent to leave the house, so long as one of the Osaki foxes remain by her side.

Ayane gives a food to Kin. He tastes it but it is terrible. Ayane asks what he thinks of it and admits that Hamaji taught her how to make that herbal muffin, which makes Kin understand the reason for such a dreadful taste.
