Kamisama Kiss is an anime television show based on one of Japan's newest and most popular mangas, or comic books, of the same name. Kamisama Kiss follows the story of Nanami, a young teen girl who has been struggling with her father for most of her life. Nanami's father is addicted to gambling, and, although he often promises to reform his ways, he usually ends up spending the rent and food money to gamble. Finally, things come to a head when Nanami comes home to find a note from her father telling her that he is leaving for good. Soon after, Nanami is kicked out of her home and finds herself without a place to stay. As she sits on a bench, wondering what to do, Nanami spots a man being chased by a dog. Nanami helps the man, who offers to let her stay at his place. He directs her to his home, which is a shrine, and then kisses her on the forehead, leaving her to find the way there herself. Nanami makes her way to the shrine, which is a bit decrepit, and meets Tomoe, a fox spirit who has been watching over the shrine for some time. Tomoe explains to Nanami that the man she met was the kami, or god, of the shrine. The kiss the man gave her has made Nanami the new kami of the shrine. She can stay at the shrine forever, with Tomoe and two assistants to care for her. However, in return, Nanami must now take on the duties of the shrine. Nanami is an adaptable girl and, after a bit of confusion, falls right into her duties as a kami. Soon, Nanami is doing whatever she can to use her role as a kami to help both humans and other kamis and spirits. As she learns more about her duties, Nanami also begins to develop feelings for her assistant, Tomoe.
