Yoshiko Okuda (animation director for The Perfect Insider, Casshern Sins) is directing the anime at GONZO. Tomoko Konparu (Utano☆Princesama Legend Star, Kimi ni Todoke) is in charge of series composition, and Youko Satou (Saiyuki Reload Blast, Dog & Scissors) is designing the characters. Takurō Iga (Fuuka, Aria the Scarlet Ammo AA) is composing the music, and Flying Dog is handling the music production.
The series centers on a female college student named Aoi, 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 "Tenshinya" (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 Tenshinya.
Yūma launched the novel series in Kadokawa's Fujimi L Bunko imprint in 2015, and Kadokawa published the seventh novel last November. As of October, the series has more than 340,000 copies in print.
Wako Ioka is drawing a manga adaptation in Kadokawa's B's Log Comic magazine, and the manga's third volume shipped last November.
