Kamisama Hajimemashita, better known as Kamisama Kiss, a highly popular anime series, premiered in 2012, lasted for 25 episodes in 2 seasons and stopped there. Its fans are eager to know whether there will be Season 3 of the show.
The source of the anime is manga series created by artist Julietta Suzuki. Director Akitaro Daichi from the TMS Entertainment Company made the anime out of it, and it was released on October 1, 2012.
The story follows Nanami Momozono, an ordinary schoolgirl. As it often goes in Japanese anime, Nanami helps a God, afterward, he kisses her forehead. This turns her into a lesser deity. She settles in a shrine where she meets Tomoe, a fox youkai, i. e. a shapeshifter or mononoke who wins her heart.
The series mostly deals with Nanami’s acceptance of her new role as a deity and her unusual relationship with Tomoe. Namely, any bond between a human and a youkai is forbidden, and they must find out a way to deal with these problems.
