New chapter to tell story from Tomoe's past

The official website for Hakusensha's The Hana to Yume magazine (a sister magazine to the main Hana to Yume magazine) revealed on Friday that Julietta Suzuki will publish a new spinoff chapter from her Kamisama Kiss (Kamisama Hajimemashita) manga in the magazine's next issue, which will ship on January 25. The new spinoff chapter will tell a story from Tomoe's past. The manga will also be featured on the cover of the issue.

The manga previously received a special chapter in April 2018.

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 has published the manga in English.

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 launched her latest manga, Ninkoi, in the main Hana to Yume magazine in August 2018.
