Goodreads Synopsis:

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!

Nanami has finally found the fallen kami who cursed Tomoe, but before she can rush home to save her beloved shinshi, she must watch the past unfold. But how will her relationship with Tomoe be affected by her standing witness to the torments he and Yukiji suffer?!


The ongoing plot line finally comes to a close in this volume, and in the best way possible.
I won’t spoil what happens, but what we’ve always wanted finally happens between Nanami and Tomoe. I wasn’t expecting it, honestly, but it’s so sweet. Aww!
We also got the conclusion to Yukiji, officially. We got to see what happens to her with Tomoe, and what happens to her after. It’s sad, but in the end she got a relatively happy ending, and I’m happy for her. We also learned something interesting about Nanami’s heritage that makes sense, but that I didn’t really expect. (Also, something that could cause a problem later, unless I read it wrong? Since no one else seems to be reacting to it?)
Having such a long plot was fun and exciting, though the cliffhangers were mean. I’m looking forward to getting back to normal, if things do; having a little reprieve from all the serious. I’m also extremely excited to see more of the development between Nanami and Tomoe. That should be fun. 
Always looking forward to the next volume.
