The hilarious, thrilling, sometimes tragic supernatural hit manga that inspired two seasons of beautiful anime from Studio Bones!

Ages 16 and up.


Yato has promised Hiyori that he’s going to confront his father, and now there’s no turning back. The first thing he’ll need is a shinki powerful enough to take the crafter down, but vessels that can survive an attack from Chiki aren’t easy to come by. As he contemplates his options, he realizes an even bigger problem: now that Bishamon knows what the crafter looks like, her life is in grave danger…

Story Locale: Japanese high school

Series Overview: As a god with few followers, Yato looks to build his wealth and reputation by taking on jobs to help folks in need. Someday Yato hopes to be worshipped by hordes of people and have spectacular shrines built in his honor. But for now, he simply needs to find some work and save up enough money to build his first shrine. No job is too small for Yato, the god-for-hire.

Publication History: Trade Paperback Original
