Kamisama Kiss or, as originally titled, Kamisama Hajimemashita, is a rather popular anime series. With its first season premiered in 2012, it has 25 episodes of two seasons released by now. The fans are eager for more. However, a question presents itself: Will Kamisama Kiss season 3 release happen anytime soon?
About Kamisama Kiss
The original manga series, the source of the anime, was created by the manga artist Julietta Suzuki. You can read the manga in the Hana to Yume magazine thanks to the Hakusensha publishing company. The TMS Entertainment company made the anime in 2012 with by Akitaro Daichi as the director. The first season release date was October 1, 2012.
The central story of the anime series
The main character of the Kamisama Hajimemashita series is Nanami Momozono, an ordinary schoolgirl. As it often happens in Japanese fairy tales and anime, Nanami lends a helping hand to a god. And then, he makes her a lesser deity by kissing her forehead. She settles in a shrine along with other entities. One of them, Tomoe, a fox youkai (also a mononoke or shapeshifter) catches her attention and wins her heart.
The central plot revolves around Nanami’s acceptance of her new role as a deity and her relationship with her shape shifting friend Tomoe. Although it’s clear from the very beginning that something’s happening between the two, their bond is a forbidden one. Humans and youkai are not meant to be together.
Kamisama Kiss: The timeline and reception
Blu-ray and DVD versions of the first season came out inIn late November 2014. By January 2015, Kamisama Hajimemashita (Kamisama Kiss) season 2 appeared on home screens. The plot was even more interesting than the 1st season’s plot. The story primarily focuses on Nanami visiting the “symposium” of gods in the Izumo Temple, true. But the other characters play a significant part as well.
Kamisama Kiss became a super popular anime series in the matter of a few episodes, especially after it turned from an entirely predictable teenage story to a complex series with multiple characters. While its ratings leave much room for improvement, both critics and fans received it with delight.
The producers have not released any news about the possibility of the third season’s launch. But we can hope. That said, we must be ready that Season 3 of Kamisama Kiss may be out even in 2016.
