High schooler Nanami Momozono has quite a few problems of late, beginning with her absentee father being in such extreme debt that they lose everything. Downtrodden and homeless, she runs into a man being harassed by a dog. After helping him, she explains her situation, and to her surprise, he offers her his home in gratitude. But when she discovers that said home is a rundown shrine, she tries to leave; however, she is caught by two shrine spirits and a fox familiar named Tomoe. They mistake her for the man Nanami rescued—the land god of the shrine, Mikage. Realizing that Mikage must have sent her there as a replacement god, Tomoe leaves abruptly, refusing to serve a human.

Rather than going back to being homeless, Nanami immerses herself in her divine duties. But if she must keep things running smoothly, she will need the help of a certain hot-headed fox. In her fumbling attempt to seek out Tomoe, she lands in trouble and ends up sealing a contract with him. Now the two must traverse the path of godhood together as god and familiar; but it will not be easy, for new threats arise in the form of a youkai who wants to devour the girl, a snake that wants to marry her, and Nanami's own unexpected feelings for her new familiar.

This is such a wholesome anime. Read the manga as well after watching both seasons, and damn it has a great plot.
The storytelling is just beautiful, characters are really given depth and it feels settling once you finish watching.
Story might be predictable but you enjoy it anyway because you'll have fun watching it. Side characters are not ignored and they're not there just to make way for protagonists, and there'll be heart tugging, skipping, and wrenching moments which will remind you about the time there is with our loved ones.
Though it is not an 'anime without any bad episodes', but it definitely won't make ...

Mixed Feelings
I came into this one with very high hopes and expectations. I left feeling happy that it was over.

I honestly expected a lot more from this one. Aside from a chuckle here or there, the jokes fell completely flat. The humor was barely palatable and was for the most part unrefined and obnoxious. Actually, obnoxious is the perfect descriptor for Kamisama Kiss, the first word that springs to mind if asked to describe the series. The romance, if you could even call it that, was contrived and was as tropey as they come. Absolutely nothing in this series felt original.

What can I say nice about ...

This was one of the very first "girl" anime I watched when I was young. There was something about Kamisama Hajimemashita that really charmed me...However, after rewatching it, I really want to slam my head into a wall for thinking so fondly about this piece of trash for so long.

The concept is neat, I like most of the character designs and I enjoy the potential this has...but I cannot put up Nanami. I HATE THIS FUCKING CHARACTER.

Her romance with Tomoe is so unenjoyable. They're always bickering about literally nothing or Nanami will act like a complete DUMBASS by ignoring her role as a deity and ...
