Yūma launched the novel series in Kadokawa‘s Fujimi L Bunko imprint in 2015, and Kadokawa published the eighth volume on April 13. As of last October, the series has more than 340,000 copies in print.
The series centers on a female college student named Aoi (voiced by Nao Tōyama), who inherited the ability to see spirits from her late grandfather. Aoi prides herself on her cooking. One day she’s feeding some agricultural spirits when suddenly a god and the master of the “Tenjin-ya” (Heavenly Inn) appears and takes Aoi away. He says that due to her grandfather’s debts, she must become his bride. Aoi hates this idea and instead declares that she will pay back her grandfather’s debt by working at the Tenjin-ya.
