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.

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 ...

Mixed Feelings
While the humor was great and i thoroughly enjoyed it, the story was confusing at some parts, and the main goal of the story was never accomplished. Nothing happened to the Himekas. Are they still apart? Are they sick still?? Also, the plot was a bit too mature for the art and age group that it was addressed to. There were some characters that had no means of being introduced, like, micchi, ami, adn kazusa, along with the butler and the cat (shi).
THe art was good and great, however, the art style did not meet the age group of the maturity in certain ...
