Among Japan's many Shintoism gods there are those with magnificent shrines, many are worshipped still today and then there are
the forgotten and minor ones - as Yato, once a war God but now absolutely obscure and forgotten and without any shrine.
When schoolgirl Hiyori resques a bewildered young man searching for his cat from being hit by traffic, and gets hit by a bus herself
and is taken to a hospital, visiting Yato explains that he's a God. She answers: Yato? I've Never Heard of that God.

But first, he needs a new Regalia, a weapon made from a human lost spirit, and young Yukine is his new spirit weapon. And, Hiyori
