Average Rating

High schooler Nanami Momozono has quite a few problems of late, beginning with her absentee father being in such extreme debt that they lose everything. Downtrodden and homeless, she runs into a man being harassed by a dog. After helping him, she explains her situation, and to her surprise, he offers her his home in gratitude. But when she discovers that said home is a rundown shrine, she tries to leave; however, she is caught by two shrine spirits and a fox familiar named Tomoe. They mistake her for the man Nanami rescued—the land god of the shrine, Mikage. Realizing that Mikage must have sent her there as a replacement god, Tomoe leaves abruptly, refusing to serve a human. Rather than going back to being homeless, Nanami immerses herself in her divine duties. But if she must keep things running smoothly, she will need the help of a certain hot-headed fox. In her fumbling attempt to seek out Tomoe, she lands in trouble and ends up sealing a contract with him. Now the two must traverse the path of godhood together as god and familiar; but it will not be easy, for new threats arise in the form of a youkai who wants to devour the girl, a snake that wants to marry her, and Nanami's own unexpected feelings for her new familiar.

This was cute and I liked it more than I expected.


I really love the characters in this youkai/mythological shoujo story. They make this story of a girl who becomes a god way better.


Adaptation of one of my favorite manga, slightly spoiled by an anime-original ending.


Funny romance with pinch of fantasy world of the Spirit/yokai realm. a girl who became a goddess fall in love with her familliar


Very interesting and you can kind of see where things are going in each episode but it is an attention grabber


I overwhelmingly enjoyed this. And I watched it dubbed. They even dubbed the insert songs that were sang by Kurama (the tengu). So nice!


Very charming and lovable main characters. I really like the supporting cast. The art is pleasant and cute.



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!


    "We, who hurt each other so terribly, will sit here licking each other's wounds. We damaged goods will each seek the other out in comfort. If you are to die tomorrow, I'm fine with my life ending then as well. But if you want to live for me for one more day,I'll go on living with you today as well. And thus begins a tale of kindred, bound by their scars. Soaked in red and written in black, a story of blood. One of which I'll never speak. Our very own, precious as it is, story of scars. And I have no intention of reciting it to anyone."
