The Gods Help Those Who Help Themselves ... But That Doesn't Mean They Can't Send A Little Help
In Japan, it is said that if you pray to a deity with sincerity, you will surely feel the divine presence. However, as the successor of the Saeki Inari Shrine, Makoto Saeki can do more than that, since she's been seeing and speaking with spirits, kami and other messengers of the Gods since her mother's funeral. Which can be difficult, especially when her classmates can't know about her latest "issues" with Gintarou, the irritable fox-like Herald who's protected the Saeki shrine for hundreds of years. But at least Makoto's father, who runs the shrine, knows that Gintarou is more than an imaginary friend. And between them, the shrine maid and mystical Herald can usually manage to cooperate long enough to help those who need it. However, when a young man with a similar "gift" to Makoto's arrives with his own shrine and Herald issues, it's going to take more than just prayers to sort things out. Because if there's one thing that both humans and supernatual can agree on, It's that the gods often work in convoluted and mysterious ways. And just because you're working for a higher power doesn't mean you always agree with their intentions.
