How many chapters of the manga were adapted in the first three episodes? You say you've read 53... how many are out in all?
Hmmm..Lets see
Episode 1: Vol.1 Seg.1-3 (The chapters are named as segments)
Episode 2: Vol.1 Seg.4-5
Episode 3: Vol.1 Seg.6+Vol.2 half of Seg.7+Vol.2 some of Seg.8 (the director is messing up with the time sequence)

What I know is that since Vol.9 had recently been released in July 19th,I can estimate that the manga has at least 54 chapters (every volume contains 6 chapters,so 9 volumes contains 54 chapters) but I don't know what is the exact number of chapters as I was only following the Chinese fan translation (the current progress is until Seg.53).However,we do know that for all mangas the most recent chapters are firstly released in a comic magazine,then they will be included in a tankobon at a later date,hence lets just assume that Kamisama Dolls has currently released 54+n chapters.

And one more thing,since there will be two more new characters coming ahead (you have already seen one of the characters whom the face is hidden in purpose in episode 3 and another one female character which will be voiced by Hanazawa Kana),I also estimate that 12 or 13 episodes will at least cover the first six volumes because the new female character only first appears in Vol.6.They might as well cover some of Vol.7 or Seg.40+ to finish off one particular arc but this is very worrying as it will be rushing to the end.However,it is also inappropiate to end the anime season at the end of Vol.6 as that arc continues to Vol.7.So,we might have to accept the fact that there will really be rushing to the end in the latter part of the anime or just anime original ending.The other possibility is that the director might make her appear early to attract viewers (mainly Hanazawa Kana's fan).Personally,this female character is one of my favourite character in Kamisama Dolls despite her bratty personality.

Thanks for that non-spoilery bit lol bratty personality, I'd so like to see and hear that... except she may just sound like her Mayo Chiki counterpart

Don't worry my friend. I'm sure that fight in ep 03 will start ep 04, before the OP

I really want to see how Hanazawa Kana fit this character,it will be interesting.Her first appearance in the manga is just stunning.

After reading the manga,I do have 6 favourite characters in Kamisama Dolls:Kuga Kyouhei,Kuga Aki,Hyuga Koushirou,Karahari Kuuko (that crazy girl) and the two new characters I mentioned earlier (Sorry no Utao and Hibino).

Granted all I like about Utao is her facial expressions, for Hibino it's her big ones, but I like Kuuko even more, which she seems to have some of Hibino's big ones Lately my chest tightens everytime I see a girl that's a little insane in the membrane, and I liked Kuuko from the start. There's also the part about her VA...

I'm jealous! I wish they'd hurry up and start scanlating the chapters to english already!

She pretty much only has one voice pattern, so it isn't hard imagining how it will turn out though.

I think there is already an English scanlation of the manga and the current progess is until Seg.14.I found the scanlation in Manga Fox but you can check other manga reading sites if you are not surfing Manga Fox.

The question will be whether her voice fits the personality as well because she often voices characters with cute and naive personality.As I said in earlier post,the new female character has a bratty personality and perhaps a hot-tempered person.

Kuuko is scary, though i think she's in trouble now. Wow Kyohei snapped, get more info on his past. So the new seki has the same face as Utao. Says the Kuga hid him and called Kyohei brother. So i'm guessing Utao's twin who was hidden since birth for some reason. Kyohei did know the kakashi she was using. Though it also looked like Koushiro knew her. Though can't say the Hyuga helped hide her since they were always fighting with the Kuga. Oh and Kyohei got his wish thanks to Utao, that bath scene!

Kyouhei is finally snapping. He has a dark past, but the question is what is it? Are Kyouhei and Aki really the same?

I still don't think Kyouhei is as innocent as he portrays himself to be. Anyways, I thought this was a nicely gripping episode. Pretty enjoyable.

Exciting episode, Kuuko getting herself an easy pray, or so she thought. That was too much for you crazy woman. Kyouhei snapped, he delivered those punches nicely, too bad it wasn't all that satisfying as Aki was still smiling. I still think that Utao is cute but her grumping, mumbling and moaning to every little surprise, while she makes that ''taking a dump'' face, is getting a bit annoying for me, I hope she gets it together. Sexy Hibino in the bath was nice.

It was a very typical episode for a show of this nature but I still liked it. Pretty well done.

I think it's a twin bro, seeing as that character's name is Kirio on the main site.

I'm pretty sure that's not background music. Kyouhei heard it (and recognized it, it seemed) too. I wonder why it sings? I'm don't think there's any music involved in the Takemikazuchi mythos.

Do you think it might be something that only Seki or used-to-be seki can only hear? Maybe also the villagers?

Episode 4 was pretty darn good.

A nice step up from Episode 3 for me.

Lots of solid action in this, and great tense confrontation scenes. Lots of interesting plot threads, and character interactions. Loads of subtle hints and little mysteries being put forward leading to many pressing questions leaving the viewer wanting more.

Now this is pretty good story-telling, and a great way to build weekly drama.

Agreed - very solid storytelling. No wheels being reinvented here - just good exposition and mystery-building, solid characters and a very interesting plot.
