Yeah, for a moment I was like "wait, I thought this wasn't that sort of anime!" (I wouldn't be surprised if some fans were into that, though, especially since neither Kurama nor Mizuki have a chance with Nanami, anyway...)

What do you mean neither has a chance? Isn't this an inverse-harem just like Fushigi Yuugi?

Perfect comparison, and proving the point: it's just like Fushigi Yuugi in that the heroine is surrounded by an ever-growing cast of cute guys, and it's just like Fushigi Yuugi in that her love interest was openly identified in Episode 1 and everybody else is only around to provide decoration and plot twists.

According to ANN, yes, only 12.

Actually, those fans will probably throw Nanami out and put Tomoe with Kurama. (*gets killed by Tomoe for saying that* ) ...and Mizuki gets Nanami by fan intervention.

Hahaha, Fushigi Yuugi is one of my favourite animes and I couldn't agree more with you. From the very start, Miaka and
Spoiler:
are destined to be together. No matter how hard Hotohori tries to woo her, it is always futile.


Even though this anime is only 12 episodes, which is a real shame considering they have plenty of material to work with, I am still grateful there is an anime adaptation. I had a hard time trying to imagine Tomoe's voice whenever I read the manga prior to the anime, and the seiyuu that voices him does a perfect job. So when the anime is over and I am back to the manga again, at least I will get to "listen" to Tomoe's voice when reading, so in a way, the anime is still running for me.

Manga sales figures I can find:

Code:
9/17-23     Volume 13    37,075
10/9-15     Volume 14    43,735
The anime began airing between these two volumes. That's a nice 20% bump in sales, but nothing like what happened with Chihayafuru as a comparison.

Code:
9/19-25/11    Volume 14     51,878
12/12-18/11   Volume 15    192,448
Chihayafuru started airing on October 5, 2011.

For anyone who is interested in discussing the manga of Kamisama Kiss. I made a thread here.

Edit: Some pictures I just had to share. I believe the last two are fanarts but they're so beautiful. If anyone know the original creators, please list them.



Did Nanami get that monkey from IKEA Canada? (sorry, just had to add that. )

Though in terms of dakimura, I'd rather have Kurama or Dragon God to replace Mizuki..

So this week we have a "quick" version of the shrine festival. It's actually not bad. Mizuki and the flute scene never fail to make me laugh. Anyway, from the preview, there seems to be plenty of angst involved on the part of Nanami and especially Tomoe and also
Spoiler:
I like how the anime has been very consistent with Tomoe's abandonment issue. The anime certainly makes the issue a lot more explicit. Looking forward to desperate and angsty Tomoe next week!

I just realized that we seem to be going backwards. Episode 12 refers to events in Chapter 26, Episode 11 Chapter 37 and 38, and bits of Chapter 79 and Chapter 50 for Episode 10. I must commend the sequencing though, the plot is still coherent.

Nanami was really down about the rumors about the shrine.
Making the shrine more popular project was a good idea.
She really was trying to make it work.
Tomoe was against it right from the start.
Kurama pretty much had all the best ideas.
Tomoe was totally not amused by that fact ^^"
Watching their preparations was kinda LOL
That final test was really taking its toll on Nanami.
It truly came at the worst possible timing.

Tomoe is his traditional clothes in 12 <3 <3

This has been my fave part of the series actually, I was glad we finally got some backstory with Mikage finding him and even more with him and Yukiji. I like how he tries to not attach himself to Nanami since he considers her weak but anytime she talks about leaving his defense mechanism kicks in and he realizes what he'd be without her.

Nooooo only one more epi

We're in for a long ride, Sage. It's a good time to be a Kamisama Hajimemashite fan.

Due to holiday schedule changes, Funimation's stream for episode 13 will debut Friday 12/28 at 1 pm ET. [Source] I'm not sure if the show is actually changing broadcast time in Japan or if Funi is changing its stream time to give its employees a holiday break.

It was used many times but still cracked up each time it happened. Totally love it.

I'm going to miss the show...
