Kamisama Kiss!

This is one of my favorite animes this season! It was originally a manga but now its transformed into a beautiful anime series! I really recommend this one.

Genres: comedy, romance, supernatural

Summary:

After her father having run away due to gambling debts, and being evicted from her apartment, Nanami meets Mikage, a strange man who is afraid of dogs. Nanami "saves" Mikage from a dog and tells him her story. He gives Nanami his house as a thank you for saving him. Nanami accepts the offer, due to having nowhere else to go. Mikage draws her up a map showing her where to go. Upon arriving, she finds that it is a rundown shrine. Nanami is then almost killed by Tomoe, who was expecting Mikage to finally return after his 20 year absence. She is then greeted by both Onikiri and Kotetsu, as the new land god of the shrine. Unable to accept Nanami as the new land god, Tomoe mocks her then leaves the shrine, which, without Tomoe's power transforms back into a run-down state. Not wanting to rob Tomoe of his home and realizing that her powers as a god are too weak anyway Nanami leaves, but eventually is brought back by Tomoe after she seals a contract with him, making him her familiar.



Nanami

[spoilers]
A teenage girl whose father ran out on her because of his gambling debts, she was often mocked for her poverty by her classmates. She becomes the local land god after former god Mikage transfers his position as master of the shrine over to Nanami. She begins with very little spiritual power, but works hard at balancing her godly duties with her schoolwork and eventually becomes adept at purification. Nanami is often upset when Tomoe flirts with other women. Tomoe always puts Shitake mushrooms in Nanami's food even though he knows she hates them. Nanami falls in love with Tomoe, but is rejected by him since it is taboo for a human and a demon to be lovers.




Tomoe

A fox yokai who serves as the familiar of the land god. Several centuries ago, he was a wild and cruel fox who served the Evil King, but occasionally took mercy on girls who showed spirit. He has a very cynical, often mocking demeanor, partly because he is distrustful of others, but he can be very charming when the occasion demands it. He is also extremely powerful, and is able to apparently disable other familiars and independent demons without much effort. His power is restricted by Nanami's words however; if she orders him to do something, he must comply. He can transform himself and others by using enchanted leaves. Tomoe worries a great deal about Nanami and is very aware of how delicate she is as a human, threatening anyone who harms her or speaks ill of her.





Mikage

A mysterious man who was once the land god of the shrine, and who left twenty years ago for unspecified reasons. He met a newly homeless Nanami and bestowed the land god mark on her, saying that she was better suited to be the god than him. He has light hair and glasses, and wears a trenchcoat and hat.





Shinjirō Kurama

A wildly popular idol with the gimmick of being a "fallen angel", with goth makeup and a bad boy attitude. He is a crow tengu who initially wished to become the land god by eating Nanami's heart. After being thwarted by Tomoe (and subsequently saved by Nanami), he gives up on this scheme and regards her as a friend, even allowing her to stay at his apartment when she temporarily loses her godhood. He has a lingering dislike for Tomoe and the two are prone to insulting each other whenever they meet. He left Kurama mountain 16 years ago and has been living in human world since then. He also shown to have more normal human's attitude than the others (Tomoe, Mizuki, etc.).




Onikiri and Kotetsu

The two bald, childlike yōkai attendants at Nanami's shrine who wear masks. Just like Tomoe, they are able to shapeshift. They are extremely fond of both Nanami and Tomoe.
