Edomae Elf Synopsis
Koganei Koito is a teenage girl who works as an attendant at the Takamimi Shrine. The shrine is rumored to be inhabited by a deity, but the true resident is an immortal elf who became trapped on Earth some four hundred years ago. In addition, the elf is a totally closed person who does not want to go outside… and she has developed a taste for video games! In this charming fantasy comedy, the keepers of the shrine have to satisfy the elf’s penchant for the latest gadgets, from handheld games to virtual reality headsets.
