Nanami Momozono is alone and homeless after her dad skips town to evade his gambling debts and the debt collectors kick her out of her apartment. So when a man she's just saved from a dog offers her his home, she jumps at the opportunity. But it turns out that his place is a shrine, and Nanami has unwittingly taken over his job as a local deity!
Tomoe has made up his mind—he can’t have a happily ever after with Nanami as a yokai, so he’s going to become a human! But things don’t go as planned when he drinks the water of evolution, and now he’s stuck in fox form! The only way he can turn back is with the help of the kami Ôkuninushi in Izumo, so he and Mikage set off on a road trip. Nanami is supposed to stay behind at the shrine, but she wants to be with Tomoe to give him support. But what should have been a simple shortcut to Izumo turns into a frightening ordeal when Nanami runs into one of Akura-oh’s henchmen!
