Kamisama Kiss Volume Three is a manga by Julietta Suzuki, and it was published in North America by Viz Media’s Shojo Beat imprint in 2011. The series is rated “T” for teens; from what I’ve read of the series so far, I would agree with this rating.
After losing her home, high school girl Nanami Momozono has a chance meeting with a man who turns out to be the land god. After bestowing a kiss on her and giving her the power of a kami, Nanami becomes the new god at the land god’s temple. Tomoe, a fox demon, serves as her familiar, and they have a contract that he cannot break.
In Volume Three, it appears that Nanami has started to fall in love with Tomoe, but refuses to admit this to herself. This aspect is a major focus of the first story in this volume, when Nanami is invited to a party being hosted by Himeniko, a catfish yokai that Nanami had helped back in Volume One.
This volume sees Tomoe transferring to Nanami’s school and joining Nanami’s class in an attempt to protect her. During this storyline, a new character named Mizuki, a shinshi at another temple who tries to make Nanami his bride, is also introduced. Kurama, another potential love interest for Nanami, also makes an appearance in this volume.
Overall, I enjoyed reading Volume Three of Kamisama Kiss. There’s a storyline near the end of the volume, where Tomoe ends up disguising himself as Nanami when she’s sick, so she doesn’t appear to be absent from school again. There are hijinks that take place during this part of the story, especially with Kurama, since he thinks it’s actually Nanami. This particular section of Volume Three really made me smile, and I chuckled to myself a couple of times.
