Nanami used to live in a ramshackle apartment with her father - a man who spent half his time gambling and the other half hiding from debt collectors - until one day the scoundrel ran away, leaving his daughter hungry and homeless. That is, until she meets a mysterious stranger in the park who deems her the new goddess of a local shrine! Unfortunately, Nanami’s new home is occupied by Tomoe, a fox familiar who objects to the presence of a mere mortal and immediately begins to bicker with the girl. If she can manage to form a contract with the troublesome man, he’ll be obligated to accept and help her perform her duties. But there’s a catch: Nanami has to kiss him first, and who’d want to lock lips with that awful guy?!

How do I begin this review? Hm, Okay let me start. This anime is really enjoyable, I personally loved all the characters but my two favorites were, Tomoe and Mizuki. But I really have to say, I dislike the whole plain highschool girl that is full of spirit and every male in contact of her falls in love, or has this crush or they must be there when they call. It just is so annoying.  I gave the characters a 9 because of, Nanami. She is really a bland character the only interesting thing about her is that she went through a struggling life because of her gambling father. But it truly annoys me, because how utterly useless she is all the time, In the first season the only real part she was useful was when helped out in the very last episode, other than that she is truly a bland and spoiled character that needs alot of development.  To be completly honest she reminds me of Kagome from Inyusha or voice is very similar and her everybody loves her because she's the main character thing.  Tomoe is very similar to Inuyasha but not, he isn't a demon. But a fox, I believe the creator took a lot of inspiration from Inuyasha, The characters, the designs. The whole he loved a girl from the past and wanted to become human for her thing, and not only that. But Nanami is obivously the recarnation of Yukiji. Uh it's to much like Inuyasha, it kills me. What makes this anime a 4 stars for me is well, the story. Even though it's too similar to Inuyasha it's still really interesting. The Gods, The Familiars and the Netherworld. The whole thing about good and bad spirits and clean air, its just so pure I loved the story. I just don't love Nanami all that much. SPOILERS  She falls in love with Tomoe obivously Tomoe can't recieve her feelings in the beginning, but he does. Of course and he protects her in any way possible. Similar to Inuyasha I get it. In the end I really loved this anime and I think you will to, if you liked Inuyasha and Fruits Basket.  The whole time, when Tomoe spoke all I thought about was Kyoya from Ouran HighSchool Host Club, Oh yeah he plays the voice of Tomoe. ENJOY!


Story: 9/10 Kamisama Hajimemashita is about a homeless girl named Nanami Momozono, she is homeless because of her father ran out on her because of his gambling debts.  While she at the park, she saved a man from a dog, he gave Nanami his house as thank you, and kiss on a forehead.  She accepts because she is homeless, and have nowhere to go.  When she arrived there, she was shocked, because is not a normal house, but actually a shrine for worship.  When she enter the shrine, she is greeted by Tomoe, a fox yokai, he served as land god familiar, and also greeted by Onikiri, and Kotetsu, they are two childlike yokai attendants at the shrine.  It turned out that the man she saved is Mikage, a land god, and the kiss on forehead is the land god mark.  And turn out that Mikage who left twenty years ago, and that piss off Tomoe.  Now Nanami is the new land god of the shrine, and as story progress, she find herself falling in love with Tomoe.  I read the manga, and the manga is great, and the story in this is actually good. Animation: 9/10 The animation by TMS Entertainment, and the animation was done well. Sound: 8.5/10 The sound was decent as best.  The Opening is good and kind of annoying also.  It like rest of the anime, and the voice cast of good as well. Character: 8/10 The two main character are Nanami, and Tomoe.  Nanami is good character, and kind of funny.  Tomoe is a fox demon, and his character is good as well.  You can see the develop of Nanami and Tomoe throughout the anime, but it is done well in the manga, because the manga you could learn about Tomoe past as well.  There are some character, that I don't like in the anime, they are Onikiri, and Kotetsu, I find them really annoying.  There are two more demon, Shinijiro Kurama, and Mizuki.  Kurama is a tengu, and he is a popular idol, and he got a bad attitude.  Mizuki is snake familiar of an abandoned shrine, and he later became Nanami familiar. Overall: 8.5/10 The anime is good to watch, and it only 13 episode long, and plus two ova coming out as well.  The manga is superior in some aspect, but the anime is good too.  The character are great, and story is good too.  So give it a watch, and then read the manga.
