Nanami Momozono is a high schooler who has a lot on her plate. Her father had evaded his enormous gambling debts by escaping town, which resulted in his daughter being evicted by the debt collectors. As Nanami muses about her future, she runs into a man hanging onto a tree to escape a dog. She rescues him and tells him about her current situation, prompting the man to offer her his home. He believes that Nanami is more suited than him to be the "Master" of the house, and thus she takes him up on his offer.

Upon arrival, however, Nanami discovers that said house is actually a dilapidated shrine. She is about to double back when a fox familiar and two shrine spirits stop her, mistaking her for their former master Mikage, the land god of the shrine. Upon realization, Tomoe—the fox familiar—leaves the shrine, refusing to serve Nanami. After a series of events leaves Nanami in grave danger, she summons Tomoe and seals a contract with him to earn his subservience. Now a human land god, Nanami must face new daunting tasks, menacing adversaries, and her handsome and hot-headed familiar.

Kamisama Hajimemashita, oh man there are so many things to say about this. Do you ever feel that you need a change in your life? We all know by now that anime and manga are a really good way to escape reality and enjoy yourself (temporarily unfortunately).

Why did I ...

Watching the anime of Kamisama Hajimemashita last year left me with lots of questions and excitement that led me here to read the manga. And so, I was really glad that I've finished reading it.

Story: 10

Being able to see Nanami, Tomoe, and Mizuki's journey made me happy as if I was really in the manga. The arcs were breath taking that it didn't even left some holes. It even arrived with the ending smoothly.

Art: 10

At first I was slightly not sure about the art, but not long after, it became better and better.

Mixed Feelings
I really like this manga at first and as the story progressed on, I started liking it more and more. But, there were many things that really changed my opinion about this manga.

ART 8/10: The art was really nice and I really liked it, but there was nothing really special about it.

STORY 7/10: The plot of the story is unique, but the vibe of it was like any other shoujo manga.

CHARACTER 8/10: At first, I thought that Nanami was a weak heroine and she needed Tomoe to save her all the time. But, she progressed and she was weak but not as ...
