Kamisama Kiss Manga Has 3 Million Copies in Print

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

The March issue of Hakusensha's Hana to Yume magazine will announce on Monday that Julietta Suzuki's shōjo manga Kamisama Kiss (Kamisama Hajimemashita) has over three million copies in print.

The story 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.

Suzuki launched the manga in Hana to Yume in 2008, and Hakusensha will publish the 17th volume in Japan on Janaury 20. Viz Media will publish the 14th volume in North America on February 4.

The series inspired a 13-episode anime, and Funimation streamed the series as it aired in Japan. Funimation will release the series on Blu-ray and DVD on February 11.
