The world consists of two parts: the near shore and far shore. The near shore is the place where people reside, while the far shore is the place for deities and ayakashi, which are emotional fragments that can posses humans and cause trouble. So it is a deity's responsibility to remove those ayakashi from the near shore with the help of weapons called Shinki, made from the spirits of dead people. Yato is a minor deity of war without shrine. Together with his Shinki, Tomone, he runs a Delivery Wish Granting Service, granting wishes for only 5 yen. After his Shinki leaves him on less than agreeable terms, he decides to run simple errands that do not involve ayakashi-related matters. While on a mission to find a lost kitten, he is nearly hit by a bus, but saved by a girl named Iki Hiyori. Hiyori dies for a moment, but then comes back to life. This, however, causes Hiyori's soul to become unstable, leaving her body frequently. So by offering 5 yen, she asks Yato to fix her body... but Yato cannot help without a Shinki, so Hiyori accompanies him on his journey to find one, in the hopes of becoming normal again. But behind Yato's kind-hearted face lies a twisted past...

S01 E01Jan 4, 2014
A Housecat, a Stray God, and a Tail Jan 4, 2014 A god named Yato answers a five-yen prayer to defeat a phantom that has appeared above a school using his Regalia, Tomone. Shortly after the battle, however, Tomone decides she is fed up with Yato and requests to have his contract with him terminated. Now without a Regalia, Yato takes up a new request to find a missing cat named Milord. Whilst he is doing that, a girl named Hiyori Iki spots him walking into the path of an oncoming bus and dives into to save him. She pushes him out of the road but is hit by the bus herself, and afterwards finds her spirit separated from her body, although she is able to return to it safely. Whilst recovering in hospital, Hiyori hears strange voices before having another encounter with Yato, who formerly introduces himself as a god. Some time later, Yato finds Milord but is attacked by the phantom. After Hiyori helps Yato escape, she learns that the incident from before has resulted in her becoming a half-phantom lying between the worlds of the living and the dead, causing her spirit, which has a cat's tail, to sometimes leave her body. After learning of the situation, Hiyori gives Yato five yen as a fee in order to help her get back to normal.

Snow-like Jan 11, 2014 As Hiyori ends up drifting out of her body more often than not, she takes advantage of her new agile form.

Assuming a Regalia could be made from any phantom, Hiyori goes in search of one, only for it to turn out to be a really hostile one. Hiyori attempts to fight the phantom herself but is stopped by Yato, who is injured in the process. After retreating to treat his 'blight' wound, which can spread if left untreated, Yato explains that Hiyori's tail is what connects her to her physical form, and if it is cut, she will die. The phantom returns, and Yato spots an uncorrupted spirit and claims it as his new Regalia, which takes the form of a white katana, allowing Yato to defeat the phantom. Yato afterwards decides to name his Regalia Yukine, which transforms into the form a teenage human boy.

On the way down, Usuke explains how his luck and fortune went downhill in pursuit of love for a girl, who turns out to be Kofuku, revealed to be a Binbougami (God of Poverty) who causes bad luck and misfortune to those around her. Yato manages to use Yukine to sever Usuke's ties and memories to Kofuku, before ensuring he lands safely. After Yato collects his payment, Kofuku tells Hiyori that Yato had once killed before.

However, Kofuku's attempt to stop the battle ends up making things worse by causing a huge hole with raging storms appear.
