Synopsis of Kamisama ni Natta Hi
One day during Youta Narukami’s last summer vacation in high school, a girl named Hina appeared before him and proclaimed herself “the Goddess of Knowledge.” Hina announced to the confused Youta that the world will come to an end in just 30 days.
Youta then witnesses Hina’s powers to foresee the future, becoming convinced that what this girl says is real. For her part Hina, with her vast innocence, decides to live in Youta’s house for some reason, perhaps just hoping to keep her company in the face of the imminent end of humanity.
