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?

More mature than Inuyasha
A lot of people have compared this manga to Inuyasha. It's true that it's very similar in many ways.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Kagome and Inuyasha bickered quite a bit and so do Nanami and Tomoe. Inuyasha was kind of rough with Kagome and Tomoe can be rough with Nanami at times. Both lead males come to the rescue of the female when she needs them. There is also the lover in the past and the jewel/Dragon King's Eye being a part of the lead female.
However, I've read Inuyasha all the way to the end and I have enjoyed this manga much more. Nanami is so much stronger than Kagome. She's hardly a damsel in distress. There are a good number of times when Nanami saves Tomoe or saves herself, rather than Tomoe saving her. She IS less strong than Tomoe, but that makes sense, doesn't it? After all, she is human and he is a demon.
Also, Inuyasha and Kagome never really address the fact that she is mortal and he is immortal. This manga explores in depth how that difference can affect their relationship. Nor does Inuyasha ever acknowledge his feelings with the clarity that Tomoe does.
I've read the raws and translations all the way up to ch.85 (check out the spoilers thread at Mangafox.com) and I'm pleasant surprised by this manga. Inuyasha began to disappoint me as the chapters dragged on and Kagome's character hardly got stronger. I think if you read the raws up until the latest chapter, you'll be as thrilled as I am with the depth of this manga and the skill of the mangaka.
P.S: IMO, it's like she read Inuyasha and thought to herself, "pssh, I can do better than that."

Formulaic romance. Main character morphs into damsel in distress character, losing all conviction. Every character is lacks depth. Art is unoriginal and uninspiring. Motivations are lacking or unconvincing. If you've ever read a decent series, stay away as this twilight-like drivel isn't worth the time.
Really beautiful manga all around. The art is stunning and the characters are likable and believable. Every character has their own clearly defined personality, and over the course of what has been translated so far, they grow and change and develop. The romanced is paced EXTREMELY well; it's not too fast or too slow. Tomoe (the male lead) is just as resistant about a relationship with a human as he should be, but his resistance isn't frustrating and their relationship hasn't dragged on (so far).
Another plus for this manga is the fact that the minor characters are actually interesting, and you genuinely come to care for them--something very rare for shoujo manga. They all get the appropriate amount of screentime (some manga will have multiple chapters dedicated to the most minor characters and it drives me up the wall) and develop along with Tomoe and Nanami.
All in all just a great manga. I can't say enough good things about it. Just wish it would be translated faster!
Mesmerizing, lovable and worth bending my spine!
Bewildering, cheerful, energetic, lovely, tense, wild, agressive, warm, determined, harmonious, witty, creepy, wide, melancholic, sweet, noisy, smooth, nosy, tender, worth-while, absolutely a beautiful MASTER PIECE of a manga
I love this manga,mostly th =e amle lead,Tomoe.Tis manga is similar to Inu-Yasha in many ways(but tomoe is hotter than Inu-yasha)The female lead are both similar,beginning as a regular school girl and later,becomes more powerful.Every single chapter pumps me up and i'm getting more and more anxious in finish reading it.(though i hope the anime would be out soon) ^_^
While it is true, as often stated, that it's basically a "girl gets in trouble, girl gets saved" story, it can definitely be compared to a Natsume Yuujinchou with a girl main and lots more romance, or Inuyasha, but less epic. The episodic stories have their own like-able side characters who often keep re-appearing in later chapters. All the plots themselves distract well from the weak main girl who is actually slowly improving along the story.
In Kamisama Hajimemashita I find her weakness actually kind of fitting. Very realistic.

Read and be joyous! *o*
A fantastic shoujo that every girl (and guys too) should read. The romance is slow, but in a good way. The characters are recently shown to have more layers than previously let on, making this a better manga than I first anticipated. Nanami may not be bright, but her bravery and kindness makes up for this without a doubt. Charming, sweet, with slight bitter tones make this manga purely delicious!
I really liked the characters especially the fox guy... hehehehe~

after reading till Ch75, I noticed that the plot would go like this: 1. Girl get into some trouble. 2. Fox guy save her 3. Happy ending
Yeah, It gets repeated over and over again... sigh.
but nevertheless, the story is good and I like the supernatural part of it! There's some romance here and there. The romance gets a little slow but it's fine. I'll be putting this onto my read list. Recommended read!
I'm very curious on how the story would end... hehehe can't wait!

Okay first, let me tell you this, it's so awesome that even if you had a migraine you would still have the enthusiasm to read and finish it all the way. that's what happened to me. Like seriously, my head was throbbing like crazy and I still read it because it's too awesome for me not finish it. Anyway, kidding aside, the art is very nice, very well drawn and very amusing as well. The plot is understandable and light. It's a nice combination of modern day girls and deities. It's not that cheeky as well. All in all, it was and I'm sure that it still is a good thing to read.
It has quite an interesting plot but it's still a really nice shoujo manga. I read up to chapter 60 in no time without realizing it! Usually mangas that have lots of chapters intimidate me but I couldn't stop reading. I highly recommend this manga for those who love fantasy and shoujo! It's also a good read for those who are interested in Japanese mythical creatures.
