Hiyori Iki, a high school student, meets with an accident while saving a stranger. This accident causes her soul to leave her body and become Ayakashi. Now, she is aware of two worlds: Nearshore, where humans, animals, and other creatures live, and Far Shore, where human souls and demons walkabout. She uses the soul to travel between the two worlds. On one such travel, she meets a nameless god Yato and befriends him. He fulfills his wishes in exchange for 5 yen in order to make a shrine for himself, where he can be worshipped. Hiyori, then, asks him to fix her body so she can go back to living a normal life. She meets Yukine now who is Yato’s Regalia – a weapon from a dead human’s soul. The three of them become good friends and embark on adventures together.
The third season will reveal Yato’s true identity and his past. He wants to be famous and become a god with worshippers. With that in mind, he starts building allies. His former Regalia, Nora, is coming for him to avenge him while Yukine helps him to become the god of fortunes.
