Supernatural Sexy Tsun Tomoe ~ Kamisama Hajimemashita – Anime Series Review
You know that feeling? Its like an unrequited hunger in your heart…You love something so much that you need more – OH SO MUCH MORE – of it? Well that’s how I felt when I finished the final episode of this anime. How I came across watching this was because I was on instagram (im @Mbkonline btw) and found lots of pictures about this anime. I was looking for a cosplay couple that I could do with my boyfriend for AnimeNorth and I thought that Tomoe was so cool looking that I wanted to see what this anime was about.
This Anime is an adaptation of the manga. It goes by two different names “Kamisama Hajimemashita” or “Kamisama Kiss”. It aired in japan starting in October 2010 and was a series of 13 episodes.
Here is the premise.
Nanami is a normal highschool girl who is unfortunately in a bad part of her life. Her father has racked up a gambling debt and has run away! Not only that but because of that debt the feds came in and forclosed her house! So she is only in high school, and is homeless. POOR GIRL! This totally reminds me of the J-Drama I loved called “Atashinchi no Danshi” which also originated from a manga. (BTW, the guys in this J-drama are totally nosebleed worthy) So… in her darkest and most desperate hour, she comes across a man named Mikage who is being bullied by a dog, saves him and he ends up opening his home to her to live in. She accepts because – well, why not?!? any desperate homeless and cute girl would rather sleep at a strangers house than on the streets. I would if he was cute like Mikage. Surprisingly turns out that Mikage is the land god for a shrine in the area and he has tricked her into becoming the land god in his place. She goes to the shrine that he lived in only to find a VERY SEXY SCARY Tomoe who thinks she is Mikage. She finds out that Mikage ditched Tomoe and the shrine 20 years ago and Tomoe has been waiting ANGRILY AND IMPATIENTLY for his masters return. Tomoe is Mikage’s familiar, which is basically a servant of a deity and takes care of the shrine. Tomoe is a fox demon, thats why he has very cute ears…. XD. He realizes that Mikage has passed on his land deity duties to this normal high-school girl and leaves. Then a whole lot of crazy things happen and Nanami tries to get Tomoe back because she knows that she cannot do this god job on her own. She succeeds (it was very exciting so go WATCH THE FIRST EPISODE RIGHT NOW!) and enters a contract with Tomoe so that he can be her familiar. Together they try and make the shrine a better place, aim to turn Nanami to become a better god.
This is a very lighthearted romantic COMEDY. Comedy is capitalized because this anime had be dying of loud obnoxious laughter, and I was laughing constantly. My mom even asked me whats wrong with me because I was laughing so hard. I love animes like this. I could put this anime on par to my favourites which are “Fruits Baskets” and “Ouran Highschool Host Club”. I’d say this surpasses ‘SkipBeat!” as one of my favourites because Tomoe is so much more awesome than any male protagonist in skip beat. Not to mention he is a super hot demon with amazing powers… and he’s like the perfect TSUNDERE. He’s almost like borderline Sadistic. And for some reason I eat it up like fat kid loves Icecream cake and I cant help but crave more! -Enough fangirling!- This anime is totally focused on the building relationships between all the characters involved especially Nanami’s and Tomoe’s budding love. Not only that, its about Nanami’s insecurities about herself and accepting the person she is, as well as accepting Tomoe as he is. Not only did I get to laugh to my hearts content but I found there are lots of heartfelt lessons I learned from these (too few) episodes. If you like sentimental romantic fantasy comedies ( – with hot anime guys. muahahaha, I would totally count this a a mini reverse harem anime) then you will definately love this anime.
The drawings and animations are so beautiful and the soundtrack is amazing. I absolutely love the opening theme. The only thing I would complain about is that it’s so short. It got me addicted to Tomoe and now that I’m done the 13 episodes I’m aching for so much more. This anime is so good that I will purchase the DVD, and I’m going to buy as many manga volumes as I can at the next anime Convention I go to (AnimeNorth). Comment me or message me from my Facebook page if you are going! I would love to hang out with more OtomeJunkies at the con!
I Love this anime and I cannot watch enough of it. I’m ending up watching all the episodes again even though I’ve just finished watching all of it. This will be one that I will re-watch and cherish for a long time. I will buy all the DVD’s and mangas and cherish them FOREVER. In fact I feel a void in my heart right now because I don’t have any of this stuff. I need to buy it in order to complete me….
Watch it NOW. It’s soooo GOOD.
Anyways I’ll leave it at that! If anyone knows or loves an Anime for themselves as much as I love and OBSESS over this one please let me know! I need something new to watch! I love getting feedback on my posts. Feel free to comment here , or message/add me on facebook!
