Goodreads Synopsis:

When Nanami inherits a shrine, it comes with divine powers and a hot fox spirit!

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 to let her stay at his place while he’s away, she jumps at the opportunity. But it turns out that his home is a shrine and Nanami has unwittingly taken over his job as a local deity!


We're getting close to the end of the series, and you can tell. There's only so long that they can prolong Tomoe's staying in fox form.
The group is still in the land of the dead, and they meet a little girl who's searching for something. Tomoe and Nanami and the others go after Akura-oh, with plans to stop him from reaching his body and saving Kirihito, the body he's in now. Akura-oh finally realizes what his minion has been up to all along, and Akura-oh finally realizes that he's changed along the way. There is a surprising twist here, an ending that I didn't quite expect for the character. The cliffhanger that it leads to is also rather unsettling and problematic. We'll see where that goes next.
This is a rather good series. I'm sad for one plot, but glad that Nanami is doing better. Tomoe's plot also took a good step forward, and I really do love him. Looking forward to the next one, as always.

A review copy was provided by the publisher, VIZ Media, for an honest review. Thank you so, so much!
