Rating (Out of 5): ~3.5
Publisher: Kodansha Comics
Release Date: January 2015
Volumes: 13+
Spoilers?: No.
Volume: 1. 2. 4.

Goodreads Synopsis:


After the near disaster with Bishamon, Yato takes Yukine and retreats. Hiyori finds Yato in bad shape as his blight reaches a critical level. Yukine continues to torture his master with his bad behavior, causing the blight to worsen and even threaten the god's life. Hiyori tries to desperately find someone to help Yato. Can any of Yato's few friends save him? Does the stray god even have friends?


I am, sadly, not in love with this series. I want to be. But I’m not.
It’s a little slow in the beginning, as we develop Hiyori’s feelings for Yato and the whole mess. Things get a little complicated regarding the stray. Hiyori is probably my favorite character, although Kofuku is kind of adorable.
Then the mess between Yato and Yukine finally gets resolved. Yukine is just a rebellious, dumb kid who doesn’t want to be dead. Understandable, but I kind of wanted to smack him for a while there. We’ll see what happens there going forward.
Bishamonten is still hanging around, her presence looming. We’ll see what happens there, too.
I’m intrigued. I’m still reading. And I’m waiting to be pulled in more.
