From Aerandria Scans:

Momozono Nanami's dad, a man with a penchant for gambling, disappeared after accumulating a huge amount of debt. Thus, she was chased out of her house by the debt collectors. When she met a timid guy being chased by a dog, he told her that he'd give her his house. She believed his persuasive talk, but when she went to his house… it turned out to be a shrine. Moreover, a guy with fox ears appeared, which made Nanami even more confused. What will become of homeless and confused Nanami?

Unexpectedly Lovable

I'm not the type to read romances and comedy together (I prefer tragedies and serious reads) but this isn't bad at all. The story is not cliched, it isn't bland, and there is a well paced plot (rare for Shoujo manga, i think). It is rewarding to read for the sake of the love that is growing and the amusing interactions that can occur. The characters are not well explored but they are suitable for the story and they are complex enough (having motivations and personalities) for the reader to care for them.
Ultimately, for a Love & Comedy, this is a 9.5/10. Props to the mangaka. I wish there were more stories with amusing romances and decent plot.

This manga is the only one i wait for every chapter and when is released i scream so loud smile.
in the begining is a little strange and not too good, but when the story advance you realized that is the most beatifull shojo manga you could read. Nanami and Tomoe are just perfect, Tomoe is so romantic and all the story is so lovy-dovey :3 i really recomend this manga it's so beatifull you could cry biggrin

This is the only shoujo manga I continue to read - probably because I LOVE the female heroine, which doesn't happen often for me. Though it seemed a bit average in the beginning although still very funny, this manga becomes a story more beautiful than I could have ever imagined it to be.

I love the art and the story, especially when Tomoe is in his long hair and in chibi mode >_< . I recommend this for people who love romance comedy and looking for manga with such a gentle man <3 .

I've been following Suzuki Julietta's works for quite some time now and from Akuma to Dolce and Karakuri Odette to the current Kamisama Hajimemashita, her writing and art have improved tremendously.

Like others, I was also hesitant to give this a shot because of the art. Yes, so very shallow of me BUT, Tomoe did in fact, look girlish and Nanami looked unappealing. At least, that is what it looked like for its image on MU (some years ago). To be honest, the art wasn't as amazing as it is now and now, Nanami is gorgeous and Tomoe is hot.

When I finally gave this one a go, I was hooked and it began to have a special place in my heart. Years later and it still hasn't lost its touch. In fact, I think I've fallen more in love with it. How amazing it is for Suzuki-sensei to build up such a perhaps "normal-at-first-sight-plot-of-a-shoujo-manga" to become so much more than it originally was. It starts off normal--like a typical shoujo but really it is so much more. Although it begins like Karakuri Odette, with different scenarios in every chapter, it has transformed into one of the most epic love stories that make your heart throb and your feelings come crashing down like waves.

I love Nanami and Tomoe and their love story.

...and ohmygod. CHIBI TOMOE IS LOVE. /squeals.lalala.fangirling.gahhh

I hate to say this, but in the beginning, Tomoe looked like a girl and I was really confused because of that, but I kept on reading because the idea of the story was interesting (I mean, a man getting chased up a tree by a dog and giving his shrine to the girl that rescues him? Plain weird.). I actually had a bunch of manga I was reading at that time and I was switching between them every chapter, but after I got to the middle of the manga, I completely abandoned the other stuff and started on it. Then I reread the manga a lot and sighed and reread it again...
This manga catches your attention with the weird introduction of the heroine and the new role she finds herself in. The artwork might not be great in beginning, but it really improves a lot. The characters develop well too. The whole concept of this manga is built up through the slow story line and it improves itself a lot. Its kinda typical at first though, and hard to pick up.

This manga seems fairly average and ordinary at first glance. I won't lie, when i first heard of it, I thought it would be another average plain shoujo and avoided it. However after watching the anime, (which did have its setbacks), i moved onto the manga seeing as it was still ongoing and I wanted to see some more Tomoe. Let me tell you, the manga is SO much better. Like I said, It's starts off as nothing extraordinary. It has a cute story, VERY likable, interesting and well developed characters. Some people mentioned that the manga was too draggy/long at parts and fillerish. While this is true, I still found the fillerish arcs enjoyable simply because of the characters who made it fun to read. I didn't really care if the main story wasn't going anywhere since the arcs were still enjoyable. Of course, the manga is currently at its peak right now imo, so yes, the story DOES move, and it's a good plot too. Its not just one of those school-life-comedy-no plot shoujos that it MAY seem like at initial glance.

I also want to mention how much I adore the characters. Tomoe- do I really need to say anything? He's so flipping sexy and I love his history with how he became a familiar. Mizuki's is refreshing and compliments Tomoe- he also has a sweet history as well. Akura-Ou is damn sexy too and Im always looking forward to learning more about him. Another one of my personal favorites is the Dragon King..he's hillarious! Finally, there's Nanami. She might seem very ordinary and plain for a heroine, but that's one of her biggest charms. I really like Nanami because she's so ordinary and is aware of it. Even though she thinks that Tomoe, an amazing deity liking her is silly, she doesn't let that stop her from loving him, and is remains honest with her feelings. This part of Nanami I really like. She's relatable and so down to earth! Its really refreshing to have her as heroine.

That being said, definitely check this one out if you love fantasy-shoujo-romances (Think Inuyasha), but make sure to be patient as it IS on the slower side.. not as slow as inuyasha though of course lol.

Gah, one of those mangas that snuggled its way into my heart and staying put. I cannot tell you how cute this manga is smile It's cute, adorable, lovely, heartfelt, (the characters are) brave, funny and so much more. It made me cry and laugh. I can't explain it. It reminds me of Fruits Basket from my childhood days but this one ONE-UPs it haha <3 I'm definitely going to buy it when it's completed. The drawings are so adorable, their emotions are on point. It has great character development. They're very courageous, selfless and sincere (or they grow to be). Some are broken and have lost all hope but Nanami and her gang are so pure hearted. BAH. I CAN'T EXPLAIN. YOU. MUST. READ.

Sigh.. I accumulated 25 chapters..and I couldn't hold back anymore, so now..I've caught up..and left at the most critical point. DAMN YOU CHAPTER 92. DAMN YOUUUUUUU

Sailor Fuku ni Onegai!

Sailor Fuku ni Onegai! was the reason I picked up this series, but outside of a girl becoming a god, there's not much else in the way of similarities. Oh, and handsome familiars. Honestly, it feels a bit like early Inuyasha where we keep getting new characters and every other person is in love with your lead female, lead male is brash and beautiful and technically forced into his position. Oh, and the shrines and youkai.

What I would consider the primary plot is being treated as a reoccurring subplot at the moment (to chapter 87). Some people may not like this, but I love it. I love that we have all sort of little arcs building the characters bit by bit while having hints of the past and future coloring the background. In a really big arc at the moment and I'm extremely eager to see how it works out. An anime began in the fall of 2012, so hopefully it will gain popularity and continue a bit longer. (The anime is pretty good. On point for the most part, though episode 13 is pretty different from the manga chapters which cover that arc.)

(Notes: Tomoe's chibi form and the Little Dragon crying are about the cutest things ever.)
