''Tayutama -Kiss on my Deity-'' tells the story of Yuuri Mito, an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent with a love of motorbikes and an eccentric father. He's also the descendant of Yachimata, a priest who sealed away spirits called Tayutai many years ago. One day, he rides out with Ameri to find that a relic that houses the Tayutai is going to be destroyed for further city expansion, and as such goes to purify it. Ameri's moped starts up a moment too soon and cracks the rock, freeing all of the Tayutai. Most of them are harmless little spirits, but three of them despise humans and go out into the world. Kikurami, a Tayutai who sealed herself away all those years ago, appears in the form of a young girl who seeks to bridge the gap between humans and Tayutai.

She ends up living at Yuuri's house, ending up married to him after a kiss. Yuuri names her [[MeaningfulName Mashiro]], and so the two begin training to reawaken Yuuri's powers and either defeat or bring around the three great Tayutai. Yuuri, Ameri, Yuuri's stepsister Yumina, and Mifuyu, a student from the prestigous Flawless Girls' School, all take part in the story.

Based on the VisualNovel by Lump of Sugar, adapted into an anime in the spring of 2009. A fandisc, ''Tayutama -It's happy days-'' was released in 2009, and an UpdatedRerelease is planned.

!!Tropes in ''Tayutama'' include:

* AccidentalMarriage -- For Yuuri, at least. Mashiro had full intentions of marrying him. Eventually upgrades into a full marriage by the end.
* ActionPrologue -- The beginning of episode 1 shows Mashiro helping Yuri's ancestors in defeating/sealing the three main demons.
* AfterTheEnd -- The very last scenes in the anime appears to be the sunken ruins of Japan similar to a scene in ''Evangelion''...we don't get to know how it happens, and there wasn't any hint about it ever going to happen at all during the series...and the only purpose of that scene is to show the two main characters reuniting (both appearing to not have aged at all).
* AllAnimeIsNaughtyTentacles -- Episode 4's fight with Nue.
* BattleAura
* BitterSweetEnding -- While they stop the BigBad, and seemingly reform him, Mashiro still ends up dying, or at least going into a long sleep. Either way, they don't get to spend time with each other until a DistantFinale where it seems the city he lived in is in ruins.
* CannotSpitItOut -- Part of Ameri's problem with her relationship with Yuri. Mashiro even calls her out on it at the end, asking if Ameri ever told him how she truly felt about him. She then tells Ameri that Yuri wasn't even aware she liked him, and in fact Yuri thought she was mad at him for some reason or wanted to be JustFriends, hence why he never took the initiative.
* CensorSteam -- Episode 9 has one during Mashiro's dream sequence.
* ClingyJealousGirl -- Ameri is incredibly jealous of Mashiro's "marriage" to Yuuri. Gets worse as the series goes on, and the BigBad even utilizes this to his advantage.
* DatePeepers -- While not exactly a date, Ameri and Sankurou spy on Yuuri/Mashiro while they're investigating a crime scene in episode 5.
* DefeatMeansFriendship -- Nue and Houou the Phoenix after being beaten. The lesser spirits seem to fall into this trope as well, and don't seem to cause trouble after Mashiro tells them not to. [[spoiler: In the end also including Oryu, the dragon]].
* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale -- After Sankuro jokes about Ameri having a crush on Yuri, she punches him in the chest.
* DropTheHammer -- Mashiro's primary weapon, even when she's in her loli form.
* EyesAlwaysShut -- Sankuro.
* GenderBender -- "Yuuko", Yuuri's female identity when he goes to Flawless to keep an eye on Yumina. Magical crossdressing!
* GreenEyedMonster -- The Dragon Tayutai feeds off Ameri's jealousy of Yuuri being "stolen away" from her by Mashiro.
* HeadPet -- The Phoenix Tayutai in both of its forms. It really likes Yumina's head.
* LawyerFriendlyCameo -- In an episode he guest-directed, [[Creator/ShinichiWatanabe Nabeshin]] makes an appearance as a salesman that Nue scares away.
* LineOfSightName -- Yuri gives Mashiro her name after looking at a bag of marshmallows.
* MeaningfulName -- Mashiro gets her name after professing delight over a marshmello, and literally translates to "pure white" (which matches her Kurirami outfit).
* MonumentalBattle -- The final battle takes place at TokyoTower.
* MurderTheHypotenuse -- As Ameri watches Mashiro, slowly win Yuuri's heart, she decides (with no small amount of influence from the Dragon) that Yuuri shouldn't have to risk his life with all this magical nonsense. She concludes that the only way to keep Yuuri safe is to drive Mashiro away... with a little help from the villain. In case this you didn't realize this a bad call, she gets bat wings, DullEyesOfUnhappiness, and a dark purple aura.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero -- After Yuri tells Ameri to escape on her bike, she accidentally causes it to crash into the wooden seal, causing it to unleash all the spirits trapped there.
* TheOjou -- Mifuyu, an honor student of Flawless.
* PettingZooPeople -- Mashiro, who has both the ears and tail of a wolf.
* PowerGivesYouWings -- The Phoenix grants a pair to Yumina, Ameri gets a pair from the Dragon. Yumina's are golden and angelic, therefore good. Ameri's are black and leathery, therefore not good.
* SealedEvilInACan -- And SealedGoodInACan in Mashiro.
* SleepModeSize -- Both Mashiro and Nue take the form of young girls when their powers are lower than normal.
* ThemeTuneCameo -- The KaraokeBox session from episode nine uses this one.
* TokenMiniMoe -- Nue.
* {{Tearjerker}} -- The final episode...who could have thought this show contained such tearjerking moments...
* {{Tsundere}} -- Ameri.
* UnluckyChildhoodFriend -- Poor Ameri.
* YouAreNotAlone -- Yuri tells this to Mashiro in episode 3.
* ZettaiRyouiki -- Ameri, appears to be a Grade B.
