Kamisama Kiss Manga to Bundle New Original Anime DVD

posted on by Jennifer Sherman
16th volume of Julietta Suzuki's shōjo series to include 2 anime on August 20

Hakusensha confirmed on Tuesday that the 16th volume of Julietta Suzuki's Kamisama Kiss manga will bundle a new original anime DVD. The DVD will include two anime titled "Kamisama, Suterareru" and "Kamisama, Onsen ni Iku."

One of the included anime will be based on the story from the manga's 15th volume, while the other will contain an all-new original story. The disc will also feature a bath scene with Tomoe and "that character." The staff and cast from the manga's fall 2012 television anime adaptation are returning for the anime DVD. Like the anime series, Akitarō Daichi will direct the anime at the studio TMS Entertainment.

The bundle will ship for 3,300 yen (about US$33) on August 20. The deadline for fans to pre-order the volume is June 24. A new Kamisama Kiss fan book will also bundle a CD featuring Shinnosuke Tachibana (Tomoe) and Nobuhiko Okamoto (Mizuki) and ship for 2,800 yen (US$28) on June 20.

Suzuki's original shōjo manga follows Nanami, a girl who finds herself homeless after her father leaves. She comes to the home of a man who offers to let her stay over — only to discover it is a Shinto shrine. The man happened to be a deity who has just transferred his status and his yōkai to Nanami.

Viz Media is releasing the manga in North America. Funimation streamed the television anime series as it aired and added home video rights earlier this year.
