His godly existence and luck just might change when he stumbles upon Iki Hiyori and saves her life; a feat which also leaves her in quite a predicament so she is stuck with him until her problem gets resolved. Together with Hiyori and his new partner-weapon Yukine, Yato will do everything he can to gain fame, recognition and just maybe, one shrine dedicated to him, as well.
To give the least amount of spoilers I can, the series is essentially about the lives of a broke god, a narcoleptic girl who has a "special condition" and one other character which is best not to say anything of. Only 3 chapters are scanlated so it's hard to say where this is going, but it's pretty entertaining at the moment with cast being likable. The premise itself is nothing too original, but it has a couple of interesting twists and the art is great.

Gave this a shot just now, and it's decent. The girl's 'condition' is pretty interesting too. I don't like bratty loli/shota chars though, but Yato and Hiyori are a pretty solid set so far =03.

Yeah, Yato and Hiyori are pretty good leads so far, I think I'm going to reserve some judgement on kid as we haven't got screentime on him yet.

Spoiler for some thoughts:

Agreed on all points. I was chuckling at the point with the binbougami though. That part was pretty funny. Also I think Vaisravana is less experienced than Yato, or at least more naive. She has a lot of Shinki but she pulls back and charges in at all the wrong times. Compared to Yato, it feels like she's quite indecisive. Probably one of the problems of havin too many options is the lack of distinction of which option is the best option.

No, it sounds more like she is stubborn to the point where she overlooks any "evil" as long as it is on her side. Yato called her out on it and she said it's fine as long as she can get rid of him.

Mostly likely the Shinki Yato killed was corrupt to some extent and corrupting Vaisravana due to the connection between shinki and deity. Vaisravana gets pissed because one of her allies dies, and Yato being Yato probably didn't care to explain himself. This is probably also why Yato doesn't have a shrine currently - he may have had one in the past, but was "demoted" after that incident.

I knew was getting Yandere vibes from Nora after her encounter with Yato for a reason. She's clearly not the type understand the word "no". What's really strange here is that despite being a Stray Shinki she's very attached to Yato. There was a small flashback that suggested Yato and her might have known each other since childhood, so the reason is probably related to that. Still having the title character being antagonist is pretty interesting.

After recent chapters I think that particular Shinki's death had more to do with Nora then Yato or the Shinki itself.

Yukine is finally starting to get some character development, I doubt this will get rid his resent towards the living right away, but it's step towards that. At least he realizes that without Yato he doesn't have anything.

I love how she just blurts this out and the following reaction.

So what exactly is up with Nora? Her situation doesn't make much sense to me.

I understand being the Shinki for multiple gods at once is bad (each god molds their Shinki a certain way, leading to a distorted mess I guess, or "used goods" ).

What I don't understand is her condition. Is she corrupt and impure like Yukine was or not? Her creepy nature and transformation to a giant bug certainly implies such, but if she was impure, Yato's connection to her should have caused him some pain from the impurity just like he did with Yukine.

So just what is she?

Having only sparse bits of Yato's background makes it kinda hard to answer, . If anything, maybe the concept off "impure" depends on the disposition of the Shinki. For someone innocent like Yukine, I can see why the things he did early in the series led to impurities. Nora's a different story. Guess I'll reread the chapter with Yato talking about how the Shinki and Gods work to Hiyori.

Also, I felt stupid for not realizing it earlier but I didn't realize that the guy (whatever his name was) that stole Hiyori's first kiss has the same silhouette (hell, it's probably the same guy) as the "father" at the end of chapter 37. I don't know what the hell's going on there, .
Spoiler for Pedo Father:

Yukine is a cute kid now that he got all of that teenage angst out of his system.

But with how innocent he is, I still can't believe he's only a year younger than Hiyori

Just to be certain, did that Shinki die or was he turned into one of those wolves?

He's dead (like beyond dead, ).

This chapter. Dem feels.

But yeah, I was confused at what happened at the end too. i still have no idea why Nora so stuck on Yato though. Surely there are other gods that can forfill his place and besides she known as a drifter among Shinkis. She's really not living up to her name, on the other hand she gets creeper by each appearance.

i think since it was shown that Yato is really kind to shikis compared to other ones(he even risked his life for yukine) she wants to slowly break him.

And the minor gods attack again. This seems to be a pretty popular theme these days.
