Kamisama Dolls is a thrilling action anime series that was first aired on TV Tokyo in 2011. The show follows the life of Kyohei Kuga, a university student who has returned to his hometown after many years of living in Tokyo. Little did he know that his return would bring back old memories as well as old enemies.

The story takes place in a small town called Karakami village, which is home to a unique tradition - the use of ancient technology to create avatars called 'Kakashi.' These giant mechanical dolls are powered by human brain waves and controlled by special stones called 'secrets.' The Kakashi act as protectors of the village and are used for daily chores as well as combat.

Kyohei, along with his childhood friends, Aki and Utao, who are a part of the village's Kuga family, are the owners of the most powerful Kakashi in the village. Kyohei is hesitant to use his Kakashi as he left the village to escape his family's shame and guilt.

As Kyohei settles back into his life in Karakami, the peace of the village is shattered by the arrival of Aki's sister, Kuga Kirio. Kirio is a powerful Shinto priestess who is determined to use her powers to take control of the village and use the Kakashi for her own gain. However, she is not the only enemy that the village has to face.

The story takes a darker turn when a series of mysterious murders start taking place in the village. The victim's bodies are found with their throats ripped out, and there are no signs of struggle. The villagers begin to suspect that the murders may be tied to the past, and Kyohei may hold the key to solving the mystery.

The show explores themes of family ties, friendship, and betrayal, as well as the consequences of using powerful technology for good or evil. Kyohei must confront his past and come to terms with his family's legacy as he fights to protect those he loves and uncover the truth behind the murders.

The animation style of Kamisama Dolls is slick and modern, with sharp character designs and detailed backgrounds that bring the village to life. The fight scenes are particularly impressive, with the Kakashi battling each other in dynamic and exciting ways.

The voice acting for the English version of the show is excellent, with Monica Rial delivering a standout performance as Utao. Her innocent and childlike voice perfectly captures the character's naivety and vulnerability.

Brittney Karbowski also gives a strong performance as Kirio, bringing a sense of menace and power to the character's role. David Matranga's portrayal of Kyohei is nuanced, conveying the character's emotional turmoil as he struggles to come to terms with his past.

Overall, Kamisama Dolls is a gripping and intense anime series that will keep you on the edge of your seat. With its combination of thrilling action, mystery, and character development, the show is a must-watch for fans of the genre.

Kamisama Dolls is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (14 episodes). The series first aired on July 5, 2011.
