This year's 19th issue of Hakusensha's Hana to Yume magazine is announcing the cast and staff of the second season of the anime adapting Julietta Suzuki's Kamisama Hajimemashita (Kamisama Kiss) shojo manga. The magazine also unveils the first key visual for the series.

The cast will be returning from the first season with the following members:

Shinnosuke Tachibana as Tomoe
Suzuko Mimori as Nanami Momozono
Nobuhiko Okamoto as Mizuki
Daisuke Kishio as Kurama
Hiroki Takahashi as Otohiko
Akira Ishida as Mikage
Junichi Suwabe as Kirihito/Akuraō
Satomi Satou as Ami Nekota
Shuta Morishima as Isobe
Naoko Matsui as Onikiri
Chika Ookubo as Kotetsu
Vanilla Yamazaki as Narrator

The staff will be returning as well, with Akitaro Daichi directing the series at TMS Entertainment. Junko Yamanaka will provide character designs, and will also serve as animation director.

The magazine also lists that new cast members and broadcasting dates will be announced in the 20th issue of Hana to Yume, which will be released in Japan on September 20.

The story of the original manga begins with 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. That yōkai's name is Tomoe, and a contract between him and Nanami can only be sealed in one way: with a kiss.

Suzuki launched the manga in Hana to Yume in 2008, and Hakusensha is publishing the 19th compiled volume in Japan on September 19. Viz Media will publish the 16th volume in North America in October.

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