Nanami was just a normal high school girl down on her luck until a stranger’s lips marked her as the new Land God and turned her world upside down. Now, she’s figuring out the duties of a deity with the help of Tomoe, a reformed fox demon who reluctantly becomes her familiar in a contract sealed with a kiss. The new responsibilities—and boys—are a lot to handle, like the crow demon masquerading as a gorgeous pop idol and the adorable snake spirit who’s chosen the newly minted god to be his bride. As the headstrong Tomoe tries to whip her into shape, Nanami finds that love just might have cute, pointed fox ears. With romance in the air, will the human deity be able to prove herself worthy of her new title?
Nanami starts out as a broke, down-on-her-luck high school girl without a roof over head, but one kiss from a stranger changes everything and turns her into the new Land God! But it’s not easy being a deity. Not only does she have to master the duties and skills needed to fulfill her new role, she also got a host of boys—spirits and demons alike—to deal with.

Tomoe used to be a fox demon, but he’s totally reformed—honest! Now, he serves as the Land God’s familiar (though with his headstrong demeanor and commanding presence, it almost feels like he’s in charge sometimes). Tomoe might seem stubborn at first, but he’s a fiercely loyal servant who’ll stand by Nanami no matter what the cost.

He may look like an ordinary—if a little theatrical—pop idol, but beneath Kurama’s celebrity is a closely guarded secret: he’s really a crow demon! The girls may fawn over him at school, but Nanami takes much longer to soften up to the charismatic spirit. Maybe it has something to do with him trying to eat her right after she became the Land God…

Mizuki—a snake spirit—takes a liking to Nanami right away. A real liking. As in, he marks her as his new bride and kidnaps her *just* a little bit (with the best intentions, of course). If Nanami and Tomoe can get over all that, though, the delicate spirit has the potential to become an important part of the Land God’s entourage.
