Thirteen-year-old Karin Hanazono feels like her life can't get any worse, Her parents died when she was younger, leaving her with an aunt who doesn't hesitate to call her stupid and useless over her poor grades. Her only friend, her cat named Shii-chan, passed away recently, leaving her completely alone. All she has left of her parents is a ring given to her by her mother, which she treasures dearly as the sole thing left of her past.
Kamichama Karin begins the moment her life takes a turn for the better, when she is approached by Himeka Kuujou, a cute girl who has also lost her parents, and Kazune Kuujou, her cousin who finds girls to be troublesome, both of whom are searching for a goddess. Her mother's memento ring shines brightly in their presence and fills her with its radiance, making her smarter, faster, and capable of granting wishes. It turns out that her ring allows her to become the very goddess they were looking for, and now that she has awakened that power, others will come after her for it…
Well well well, what is there to say about Kamichama Karin? A lot, actually. I was skeptical about this anime at first, because I thought from the picture/description it was for little kids, but I was so so so wrong. Kamichama Karin is a confusing anime, with many twists and turns, and by the end of it you're going to have your eyebrow raised and your mouth hanging open, saying "...WHAT???" But above all else, you're going to love it. Kamichama Karin is about a young girl who is given the power of a goddess through a magic ring. I won't give any spoilers away,
but this is the first anime I've ever seen where if you don't know the spoiler, then you'll look at this anime and think "This really doesn't look worth watching." Trust me, it is. This isn't your typical magical girl fluff.
CONFUSING. But I liked it. Like I said, I don't want to spoil it for anyone. I love Karin's "I AM GOD!" and I read that the author started Kamichama Karin as a joke to the magical girl genre. But nonetheless, the story turns pretty serious, even though this anime started out as a joke.
I LOVED the art. The characters are adorable, with huge eyes and sweet faces. Their outfits are so cute, especially their Lolita-esque school uniforms. The art is quite good, overall.
Well for sound. I loved everyone's voice except for Himeka. Karin's is just adorable and Kujyou's is great!
Here's my main complaint. HIMEKA. I cannot STAND Himeka's character. She starts off really cute in the first episode, but you'll soon find that her voice will drive you crazy. She talks so slowly, and ends all of her sentences with the same breathy, high pitched noise. Plus, her character is very annoying because you can never guess if she is good or bad, what she means to Kujyou, etc. Take Himeka out of this (or at least fix her personality/voice) and you get a fantastic anime.
Overall, if you're like me and you've just finished watching Wedding Peach and Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch, and are a huge Sailor Moon fan, but don't know what to watch, this is the anime for you.
An absolutely wonderful and romantic anime, yet funny and intense at the same time. You really can't miss It. The story captures your attention and draws you in from the first episode to the very last. To be honest, the story is very serious at some points, but that is one of the reasons why its so outstanding.
I'd say the most interesting thing about Kamichama Karin is the confusion and the things that make you wonder, "Whats happening right now? I don't get it at all" It leaves you dumbstruck for some parts, but the math behind it is simply amazing. This anime also includes
not only cuteness, but sometimes a very intense atmosphere and at some times can be very random and humorous.
The Characters. They all have so many different kinds of personalities, yet that all seem so much alike at the same time. I'd say Kazune and Karin are the most interesting pair in this anime, at first their impression of eachother is low, but their relationship slowly develops as the story moves along. It's quite entertaining, and it always ends with a very heartwarming scene. Trust me, those two can possibly become another one of your favourite pairings.
As expected! The art of this anime is simply kawaii, just like Pita Ten! Karin looks so adorable in her Goddess form! Not only is it cute, but it goes so well with the story. They all have very unique looks that suite their personalities very well.
I don't have much to say now about the sounds, but one thing I found quite disturbing is when Karin high pitched screams, it kind or ruins the mood a bit, but still very enjoyable and cute. For every situation big or small, they always manage to find a perfect background music/sound for it. It may deeply move you, or sometimes even makes you laugh at all the hilarious ones.
Thats pretty much all I have to say, you'd really want to see this anime some time. I don't have anything bad to say about it, I will now continue to the sequel, Kamichama Karin Chu!
I found this anime to be one of my favorites so far. The story really moved me especially the characters. It is a great anime for those people who are looking for a variety of genres. It includes romance, mystery, drama and fantasy. It's like a magic girl romance dromedy. The main plot of the story is what really brings the watcher more into it. What the plot is about is that the main character tries hard to do her best to become stronger because at first she is weak, she soon finds out about things she never knew, secrets kept from her and falls
in love. It truly is a heart warming story. ^_^
Ok! I finally finished this series and absolutely loved it! I loved the magic, the romance, and the occasional funny parts. Yes this anime is a bit lovey dovey and I do not recommend it to people who hate those smosh parts but I know there are lots of people out there who like these kind of things! I know I do! Anyways here is my view on things..
Story: I really did not understand the story at first for the first episode was very confusing and contained many "unknown" characters that dont get introduced until the second season ....but otherwise, I enjoyed all the weird
twists and turns and found them very exciting although somewhat predictable. *sighs* The ending of the series was the most surprising yet. A lot of drama though....
Art: The art was pretty good most of the time and the movement was also pretty good but the thing is..some of the episodes...perhaps episode 4....had the worst animation ever! It looked like an amateur drew the characters because either the character's eyes were too close together or their nose was to pointy, I cant even describe how horrible the animation was for this episode and some other ones, too! But when the animation was normal...it was okay.
Sound: The sound was great! It gave great mood to the right scenes and the opening theme was flawless! I also really liked the classical music in it!
Character: The characters in this story was very thought out because each and every one of them had their own personality and flaws. I also really loved Kazune's cute and sometimes sexist character. I dont know why but I do!
Overall I really enjoyed this anime and I hope you do too! I think I rated it pretty well!
