Goodreads Synopsis:

When Nanami inherits a shrine, a hot fox spirit and divine powers, she discovers that becoming a literal goddess of relationships doesn’t make her own love life any easier!

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!

Kirihito has finally found a way to enter the Land of the Dead in order to retrieve his true form, the body of the dread yokai Akura-oh! Nanami, her shinshi, and all the Izumo war kami are hot on his tail, but the ruler of the realm is furious that no one asked her permission before barging in. She slams the gates and shrouds the land in darkness. How will they be able to find Kirihito now, much less the way out?!


Nanami is on a mission to save Tomoe, in any way that she can, and she refuses to stay behind when she could possibly be helpful. This leads her to meeting a new ayakashi, and to Tomoe running into Akura-oh.
Thankfully, though, she finds some good information out. And this leads Tomoe to finding out what Nanami is hiding from him, that she might be dying soon, and there is a well-deserving confrontation between them. Nanami needed to be yelled at a little, and this also draws them closer which they needed.
This series is always fun, and I’m looking forward to seeing how it wraps up, since there’s only a few volumes left.
