posted on by Karen Ressler
This year's 23rd issue of Hakusensha's Hana to Yume will announce on Wednesday that the second season of the Kamisama Hajimemashita (Kamisama Kiss) anime adapting Julietta Suzuki's manga will premiere in January. The magazine also announced several additional cast members: Wataru Hatano as Jirō, Akira Kamiya as Sōjōbō, Hiro Shimono as Yatori, Daisuke Hirakawa as Suirō, Ayaka Saito as Botanmaru.
Pop singer Hanae will perform the opening theme "Kamisama no Kamisama" and the ending theme "Ototoi Oide" for the series. Hanae debuted her first single in 2011 and performed the opening and first ending theme for the first season of Kamisama Kiss in 2012.
The main 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
Shūta Morishima as Isobe
Naoko Matsui as Onikiri
Chika Ookubo as Kotetsu
Vanilla Yamazaki as Narrator
However, Naoko Matsui will be replacing Natsuyo Arashi as the role of Onikiri. Showtaro Morikubo will join as Ōkuni-nushi, Hinata Kusunoki will play Mamoru in his young monkey form, and Daiki Yamashita will play Mamoru in his child form.
The story of Julietta Suzuki's 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.
