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.
