ABOUT: When Nanami inherits a shrine, it comes with divine powers and a hot fox spirit!

Nanami Momozono is alone and homeless after her dad skips town to evade his gambling debts and the debt collectors kick her out of her apartment. So when a man she’s just saved from a dog offers her his home, she jumps at the opportunity. But it turns out that his place is a shrine, and Nanami has unwittingly taken over his job as a local deity!

 

My Review: I am more in love with Kamisama Kiss than when I started reading this manga. This was such a fantastic series and I’m so sad to have finished it.

Nanami is a kind-hearted but stubborn girl. She really adjusts to all the supernatural happenings very well for a human. There were times I didn’t like her – when she’d act without thinking things through. But I like her and could imagine anyone else for this particular role.

Tomoe I love a lot. He’s so brash but sure of himself. He’s dedicated and mysterious. He’s gone through so much but that doesn’t stop him – maybe stall a bit – from doing what must be done. I enjoyed his character development most of all.

Really all the quirky characters are lovable in their own way! Mizuki is adorable and contributed a lot of comedic moments. Kurama is cool in everything he does. Ami and Kei, Nanami’s best friends, were the perfecting supporting characters and anchor to Nanami’s human side.

The final volume was really emotional for me. Things wrapped up so nicely and with such finality but much hope and happiness for the future. I could not have asked for a more perfect ending. I’m so happy for Nanami and Tomoe! This is a bittersweet goodbye to these characters and series but I can honestly say I am one happy reader.

A Perfect Day For Reading

Happy Wednesday, Bookworms!

We are halfway through March if you can believe it. It’s a nice day out with a cool breeze. No real plan for today besides reading. I’m just gonna go with the flow.

Kamisama Kiss by Julietta Suzuki

I had to snap a picture of the chapter cover art of chapter 104 from Kamisama Kiss. Just seeing these characters I love in such like this makes me smile. This is my favorite chapter art from the series so far.

The story itself is great and where I left off some major thing happened. I’m going to watch the anime as soon as I finish the books.

Tomorrow is the first day of Spring!

Have a nice day, everyone! And, as always, HAPPY READING!!!

[Manga Review] Kamisama Kiss (Vol. 1) by Julietta Suzuki

Review of Volume 1 only

Genre: Manga, Graphic Novel
Series: Kamisama Kiss

Rating: 4 out of 5

 

ABOUT: Nanami Momozono is alone and homeless after her dad skips town to evade his gambling debts and the debt collectors kick her out of her apartment. So when a man she’s just saved from a dog offers her his home, she jumps at the opportunity. But it turns out that his place is a shrine, and Nanami has unwillingly taken over his job as a local deity!

Nanami has all kinds of new responsibilities she doesn’t understand, dangers she’s unaware of, and a cranky ex-familiar who’s… actually pretty hot. What’s a new-fledged godling to do?

 

My Review: This was a great start to the story. I’ve only watched the anime so this was a nice re-introduction to the story. Reading was a nostalgic experience.

Nanami is alot different than I remember. She is an eh character as of this first volume but I’m sure I’ll grow to like her character more. She’s vocal when she needs to me. She doesn’t allow Tomoe to walk all over her or scare her.

Tomoe is like any other of my favorite white-haired main character. You can tell how deeply the betrayal has affected him. He doesn’t think much of Nanami because she’s human. But I also think he’s projecting his anger onto her. I like his character the most because of his cool attitude.

I can’t wait for more characters to appear. I think they will add a lot of color and humor to the rest of the story.
