Otaku Elf: Action

Koganei Koito is a teenager who earns her money as a servant of Takamichi Shrine. Rumor has it that a deity lives in the shrine, but the actual inhabitant is an immortal elf who has been stuck on Earth for about four hundred years. In addition, the elf is very enclosed in herself, hardly goes out the door and has developed a preference for video games.
