Goodreads Synopsis:

Yato is a homeless god. He doesn’t even have a shrine, not to mention worshippers! So to achieve his ambitious goals, he’s set up a service to help those in need (for a small fee), hoping he’ll eventually raise enough money to build himself the lavish temple of his dreams. Of course, he can’t afford to be picky, so Yato accepts all kinds of jobs, from finding lost kittens to helping a student overcome bullies at school.


Bishamonten is dealing with the aftermath of what happened with one of her shinki, as is Kazuma who had to help her. No one really knows what happened, though; they’re not allowed to. Bishamon and Yato are trying to figure out what to do, on their own, about the crafter/Yato’s dad. It’s complicated, but Bishamon has thought up a surprising possibility, and she goes after it in this volume.
There’s also a divine counsel in this volume, where all of the gods get together for a party, to debate on important things, and for a matchmaking. Yato meets some interesting new gods. He also causes some trouble for Hiyori’s possible future, though Kofuku also helps him with it. That should be interesting. We also get to see more of Ebisu, whom I still quite love.
This was another fantastic volume. The humor is still the best, and balanced perfectly with all the serious moments, and the main plot is definitely getting deep and dark. I can’t wait for the next one, though we’ll be caught up then.
