Somali to Mori no Kamisama synopsis:
The world is ruled by spirits, goblins and all manner of strange creatures.
Human beings are persecuted, to the very point of extinction.
One day, a golem and a lone human girl meet.
This is a record of the pair; one a member of a ruined race, the other a watchman of the forest. It tells of their travels together, and of the bond between father and daughter.
