■ Episode 12 Story

It’s been a long and rocky road, but the Seven Lucky Gods are back together at last—catching up over a nice long soak at the local bath house. Freshly returned from their trip to the underworld, Ebisu and Daikokuten hear from a decidedly green-looking Fukurokuju about the redevelopment plans for Kamisune-cho. Then, as the gods contemplate the loss of their earthly home, things get heartfelt. Will the Seven Lucky Gods finally live up to their name?

Nanaraki: Seven Lucky Gods Episode 12 is available on the official Nanaraki YouTube channel!

■ What is Nanaraki: Seven Lucky Gods?
