Shaorin (守護月天 小璘, Shugogetten Shaorin)

A moon spirit who wears traditional styled costumes, she has little understanding of the human world after spending a few thousand years in the confines of the shitenrin. Throughout the anime her purpose is to protect Tasuke, and she does so by summoning different assistants called Hoshigami (星神, literally "star gods") through the ring. She initially causes trouble for Tasuke by destroying harmless household objects in her efforts to protect him. Because of this, Shaorin sends Rishuu to protect Tasuke at school.

In the manga her misguided efforts to protect him the first day cause Tasuke to order her to go away, saying that he can protect himself. A bit later she apologizes, and asks his permission to protect him from loneliness. On that basis the manga continues. She develops feelings for Tasuke, and gets jealous when Kaori shows up.

In the manga, as a spirit, she profoundly does not understand these feelings. Her guardian, the hoshigami Nankyuko-Jusei, counsels her that these are feelings that she should not learn. He means that it will make eternity harder for her when she must part from Tasuke.

Mamotte Shugogetten(まもって守護月天!, Mamotte Shugogetten!)

is a manga by Minene Sakurano, which was serialized in the monthly magazine Shōnen GanGan. A continuation was published in Comic Blade titled Mamotte Shugogetten! Retrouvailles​ (まもって守護月天! 再逢, Mamotte Shugogetten! Retoruba). The manga was adapted into a 22-episode TV anime series produced by Toei Animation.

The story involves 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 goddess named Shaolin.
