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?

I don't really understand why people are saying that Nanami is a damsel in distress. It's true that she does need a lot of saving. But what a lot of people don't seem to see if her strength in character. Although she does get upset that Tomoe doesn't love her, she GROWS UP. Her character growth is admirable, especially how she decides that love should not be selfish in constantly seeking the other's praises and returning her love.
Even though a lot of parallels can be drawn with Inuyasha, the plot and characters are much different. Tomoe is less brash and much less stubborn and considerate than Inuyasha. Inuyasha's character is more of a teenaged boy, while you can definitely see the age and maturity in Tomoe when he feels like acting his age. Kagome and Nanami's experiences are even further apart. Nanami's character growth is much smoother and sleeker than Kagome's angst. In some sense, Nanami's fondness to Tomoe's old love is so much more than Kagome can ever do for Kikyo. And if anyone is completely up to date, you can see that that the plot cliche argument is void.
What people don't see is the fact that the repetitiveness of Tomoe saving Nanami is only used for character building and every new story for that is different since Nanami IS in fact growing stronger. If anyone is only seeing that icing over the cake, then they have not looked deep into the story at all.

Disappointing, a good start but then went down...
It promised to be a good story, with nice drawings and a story that could have developed much more, instead, it became VERY repetitive. The characters are flat and the story seems to lead to nowhere, there are chapters that are just to fill up space, it seems to me that until the author can think of a development or real progress in the plot/story.
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~
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
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!
