Yato is a minor god whose dream is to someday become the highest god in Japan. But right now he’s a nobody who doesn’t even have a shrine, so he advertises his services around town telling people he’ll help them for a 5-yen offering. One day while on a job, Yato is saved from being hit by a bus by Hiyori, a high-school senior from a wealthy family. When Hiyori wakes up, she discovers that no one can remember Yato but her. After tracking him down, she learns that the world is full of gods and phantoms, and as a result of the accident, she has become a “hanyou,” a person whose soul can easily leave their body.
