While playing in the snow one day at her shrine, the land god Nanami Momozono witnesses her familiar—the fox youkai Tomoe—collapse, with dark markings appearing on his body. Tomoe's former master, Lord Mikage, appears after his long absence and places Tomoe into a magical pocket mirror in order to stave off his ailment.

Mikage explains that long ago, before he and Tomoe had met, the fox youkai was in love with a human woman. Seeking to live as a human with his beloved, he made a deal with a fallen god, but he only ended up cursed and dying. When Mikage discovered Tomoe, the god made the youkai forget his human love as a quick solution. However, something has changed recently to reactivate the curse; Tomoe has fallen in love with his new human master, Nanami. Since there is no way to stop the curse, Nanami wants to stop Tomoe from getting cursed in the first place by traveling back through time, even if it means they may never meet. As Nanami travels back hundreds of years to save her precious familiar, she discovers that she is far more closely bonded to Tomoe than she previously thought.

To speak about this OVA it's important to acknowledge first of all the huge difference between the manga of Kamisama Hajimemashita and it's anime adaptation. The adaptation has never been completely faithful to the manga, and the same happens with this OVA. If you haven't read the manga, this OVA is just a great addition to the anime. However, if you already read the manga, you won't be able to help feeling a little disappointed.

The OVA is very well done, just like the regular anime; good art, good cast, good rythm, good everything. The love between the main characters is reinforced and some read more

It was so good I actually cried. (Rarely cries when watching tv shows or movies)

End of story.

I really don't want to spoil anything but this really is the sole reason I was willing to continue with the story and read the manga. The TV show arcs are a little too "slice of life" for me. I'm the type of person who likes watching love stories that have A LOT of life or death drama and those in which the girl kinda "changes" the evil male protagonists.

Hence I'm kinda a fan of the Hunger games XD. ALSO, AI TO MAKOTO, a manga from the 70s read more

I watched Kamisama Hajimemashita a while ago so i forgot how good this anime actually is. Especially these ovas. I'm going to review these series as a whole (including both seasons and the ovas).
I have this rule that i'm not going to make reviews about shows that i love because i tend to see them as if they are perfect and i know they're not, so i'm not very objective making reviews about my favorite shows but i'm going to try it anyways. Ok with that being said let's continue.

Story 9/10
The genre of the anime is comedy and romance, and that's exactly what they read more

I fell deeply in love with all the episodes of Kamisama Hajimemashita from Season 1 to 2 to its OVA version. I love the development of the two main characters; from enemies to friends, and eventually, to lovers. Unlike, the many animes that I have seen, the streak of independence, wit, kind-heartedness, positivity, and charm in Nanami was a welcome change from the dimwitted and damsel-in-distress qualities that female leads in this genre have been stereotyped with. Same with Tomoe, who, though initially had difficulty wearing his heart on his sleeve, still managed to overcome the usual cold and steely demeanor, which often characterized anime read more
