Kamisama Kiss/Kamisama Hajimemashita Manga Gets 2nd Anime Season
This year’s 17th issue of Hakusensha’s Hana to Yume magazine is announcing on Tuesday that Julietta Suzuki’s Kamisama Kiss (Kamisama Hajimemashita) manga is inspiring a second television anime season.
The story begins with Nanami, a girl who finds herself homeless after her father leaves. She comes to the home of a man who offers to let her stay over — only to discover it is a Shinto shrine. The man happened to be a deity who has just transferred his status and his yōkai to Nanami. That yōkai’s name is Tomoe, and a contract between him and Nanami can only be sealed in one way: with a kiss.
Suzuki launched the manga in Hana to Yume in 2008, and Hakusensha published the 18th volume in Japan in May. Viz Media will publish the 16th volume in North America in October.
The series already inspired a 13-episode television anime season, and Funimation streamed the series as it aired in Japan. Funimation release the series on Blu-ray and DVD on February 11.
