Manga ran 2008-2016, inspired 2 anime seasons, OADs

This year's ninth issue of Hakusensha's Hana to Yume magazine revealed on Thursday that Julietta Suzuki will publish a special short chapter of her Kamisama Kiss (Kamisama Hajimemashita) manga in the magazine's The Hana to Yume sister magazine on April 25.

The Hana to Yume previously revealed that Suzuki will publish a new manga in the magazine in line with the issue's "fantasy" theme."

The story of the 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 ended the series in May 2016 with 25 volumes. Viz Media publishes the manga in English, and released the 25th volume last October.

Kamisama Kiss inspired two anime seasons, and Funimation streamed both seasons as they aired in Japan, and also released both seasons on home video. The manga also inspired a series of four original anime DVDs (OADs) that shipped with the manga's 22nd-25th compiled volumes. A "volume 25.5," an official fanbook, shipped in December 2016, and bundled a DVD with an original anime, and a 32-page epilogue manga.

Suzuki recently ended her Tripitaka Torinique manga in Hana to Yume on January 4. The fourth and final volume shipped on March 20. Suzuki launched the series in October 2016.
