Karin is an average girl...at best. She's not good at sports and gets terrible grades. Plus, her parents are dead and her beloved cat Shii-chan just died, too. She is miserable...but everything is about to change. Because little does Karin know that her mother's ring has the power to make her a goddess! Soon she and Kazune, a brusque but cute boy with godlike powers of his own, will have to fight to protect Karin's ring and Kazune's cousin Himeka from the evil forces of Kirio Karasuma...who has divine designs of his own.

After the wonderful time I had reading Pita Ten, I was compelled to seek out more of Koge Donbo's original work, so naturally moving down the line, I picked up Kamichama Karin. It started with all the best intentions; a comedically off-beat magical girl adventure... and then, dear reader, it slowly fell apart until there was nothing left to enjoy.

Kamichama's biggest flaws come mostly from the story. While the offbeat humor fits in well in the first volumes, it becomes increasing inappropriate as a more serious plot is built upon. Most notably, the cast's antics and the slapstick humor feel severely out of place throughout read more

I just couldn't help but love this manga. It's just too cute.

The story itself is an interesting original one, and also has greek mythology in it which makes it even more interesting. I didn't love the art at the beginning but after I got used to it, I found the art to be a beautiful one.
The characters are one of the best things in the manga. Karin develops so much during those 32 chapters and as well the others.

Overall I enjoyed it very much. Recommended to the people who love cute romance and fantasy manga, and even to the people who love read more

Kamichama Karin does one thing perfectly-Making you read it again and again even though you know the story isn't that great.

The story revolves around a young girl named Karin Hanazono.In the beginning she is a girl who is no good at sports or school,lives with her mean auntie,and has really no talents except for self pity.Both her parents died and her cat Shi-chan just passed away.Then she meets a handsome boy while visiting her cat at her grave. His words to her are:"what are you doing stupid?Stop crying.You'll catch a cold if you stay out her stupid girl.Girls are so stupid..."What does little miss read more

This is my very first review so go ahead.
Kamichama Karin is probably one of the cutest manga ever. Whenever I read it, I went "oh my, how kawaii!!!".
The strength of this manga is, obviously, the cuteness of the character design. Koge Donbo did a superb art for this. My favourite character in this manga is, of course, Karin Hanazono. She's energetic but then, one more time, cute.
The weakness of this manga is, well, not that many so I wouldn't touch on that.
I've managed to understand the storyline which turned out to be a shocking truth that I cannot reveal unless you read the manga read more
