In times of need, if you look in the right place, you just may see a strange telephone number scrawled in red. If you call this number, you will hear a young man introduce himself as the Yato God. Yato is a minor deity and a self-proclaimed "Delivery God," who dreams of having millions of worshippers. Without a single shrine dedicated to his name, however, his goals are far from being realized. He spends his days doing odd jobs for five yen apiece, until his weapon partner becomes fed up with her useless master and deserts him. Just as things seem to be looking grim for the god, his fortune changes when a middle school girl, Hiyori Iki, supposedly saves Yato from a car accident, taking the hit for him. Remarkably, she survives, but the event has caused her soul to become loose and hence able to leave her body. Hiyori demands that Yato return her to normal, but upon learning that he needs a new partner to do so, reluctantly agrees to help him find one. And with Hiyori's help, Yato's luck may finally be turning around.

I’d pay Yato 500 yen to cuddle tbh


Meet Yato, a god who will even clean your toilet for money.


One of the first anime I watched when I was starting to watch anime for real. Lots of memorable characters and story that I highly enjoyed.


Yu Yu Hakusho Ep. 1 + Bleach Weapon naming concept + Soul Eater Partner concept + Urban Japan and Japanese deities = Pretty Fresh Show.


First season of a stray god with a unique disposition for priorities. Fun, snappy, and altogether exciting to behold.


A wonderful spin on Shintoism. Yato is a wonderful protagonist.


A great anime about life and death by studio Bones. “Even when times get dark and painful, people should feel lucky to be alive at all.”
