OAD to adapt manga's "past arc"

The official Twitter account for Hakusensha's Hana to Yume magazine announced on Friday that Julietta Suzuki's Kamisama Hajimemashita (Kamisama Kiss) manga will be getting a second original anime DVD (OAD).


The OAD will adapt the "past arc," which spans from mid-volume 14 to volume 17 in the manga. Hakusensha will release more information about the OAD with volume 21 of the manga, which will ship on April 20.

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.

Suzuki launched the manga in Hana to Yume in 2008, and Hakusensha published the 20th compiled volume in Japan on December 19. Viz Media published the 17th volume in North America on March 3.

The series inspired two anime seasons, and Funimation streamed both seasons as they aired in Japan. Funimation also released the first season on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in 2014.

The manga also inspired a previous two-episode OAD that shipped with the manga's 16th volume in August 2013.

The final episode in the show's second season aired on March 30.
