After the death of her beloved cat, orphan Karin Hanazono is left lonesome and empty. As she does not have any friends and performs poorly at school, her mean-spirited aunt resents having to take care of her. Wholeheartedly believing that God will grant her salvation one day, she tightly holds onto the ring that her mother passed down to her.

Seeking solace by spending time at her late cat's grave, Karin unexpectedly meets a boy named Kazune Kuujou, who claims he is looking for God. However, Kazune calls her weak for relying on her deceased cat for comfort. Angered by the insult, Karin subconsciously channels energy into her mother's ring. Soon enough, she begins to excel at school and classmates compliment her for the first time. Unbeknownst to her, the ring has bestowed her godly powers.

The revelation of the ring's transcendent strength catches the eyes of not only Kazune but also more sinister figures who wish to take advantage of Karin for nefarious purposes. Karin must now use her newly acquired gift to fight back against these malicious forces, unaware of the truth behind her heritage and the existence of others with similar abilities.

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 ...

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 ...

Mixed Feelings
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 ...
