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!

It’s the third day of the school trip, and it looks like Nanami and her friends will finally get a chance to enjoy Okinawa. However, Mikage pops up with a shinshi assignment for Tomoe—deliver a gift to the local shrine maiden. But the simple errand has complicated consequences as Tomoe is forced to face Nanami’s mortality and the seeming impossibility of a yokai and a human living together happily ever after.


Now that the group is back home and safe, with Nanami and Tomoe finally together, we’re brought a new problem: Tomoe’s immortality, while Nanami is not.
Tomoe decides he wants to become human for Nanami, because he’s shown how quickly humans die, and he doesn’t want that to happen to Nanami while he lives on. He wants to grow old with her. Nanami is not in favor of this idea, at all. When Tomoe takes matters into his own hands, it doesn’t turn out in his favor, anyway.
There is still Akura-oh, too. Him and Tomoe are in a bad standing, and Tomoe doesn’t even know that he’s the one bothering Nanami. Akura-oh is up to no good, but it looks like something will be happening there soon. It’s been building in the background for a while now.
I love Nanami and Tomoe, and I love how Tomoe is around Nanami, how much he clearly cares for her and all he will do to be with her. I love that they’re together now; they’re so cute.
I’m always looking forward to the next one; this series is always a delight.
