    as fas as I learned, this anime (LN) kinda use real kami but modify some of it...

    i.e.Kofuku is suppose to be Benzaiten (Japanese version of Saraswati) she is good of money/fortune aand yet in this anime we have her as good of poverty.

    Bishamonten is only changed from dude to a women.and she is good of warrior.

    Tenjin is pretty much the same.

    but I haven't hear any good of calamity aside
    Maga Tsuki's Orihime, which arguably is Susanoo too, she is sibling of Hinata (Amaterasu)


    is he (Yato) suppose to be Susanoo too? which is really odd that he was said minor god, when Susanoo is not minor at all

    Ebisu is the god of luck and fortune, not Benzaiten, and Kofuku isn't Ebisu, she's a poverty god who's using Ebisu and Daikoku's names for her benefit. Daikoku threatens to sue Ebisu because of this.


    Yato isn't Susanoo, there are deities called but Yato's real name is Yaboku.
