Karin is an average best.
She's not good at sports and gets terrible grades. Plus, her parents are dead and her beloved cat Shi-chan just died, also. She's miserable...but everything is about to change. Because little does Karin know that her mother's ring has the power to make her a goddess!
Soon she and Kazune, a brusque but cute boy with godlike powers of his own, will have to fight to protect Karin's ring and Kazune's cousin Himeka from the evil forces of Kirio Karasuma...who has divine designs of his own.

It's for kids

It's hard for me to review Kamichama Karin because 1.) the demographic is obviously young kids and preteens, and 2.) I'm sentimentally attached to it because I read it when I was a young kid/preteen. That being said, Kamichama Karin is a standard magical girl manga. The art is very Koge Donbo (gigantic eyes, frilly clothing, and shoujo sparkles), which works with the manga. Tropes galore. Surprisingly, Kamichama Karin has some genuinely funny moments. Not much in way of emotional depth, but that's to be expected. The one thing that bothers me (even with in the context of Kamichama Karin being a magical girl manga for kids) is the weird twist ending. There was almost no buildup to it, and it just felt really forced and out of place. I feel like the series could've wrapped up in a more cohesive fashion.
Otherwise, if you're in elementary or middle school and like the genre, I feel like this is a good pick. If you're older, I mean, you can still read it, but I don't think it'll appeal to you as much.

Very, very confusing, I thought. Absolutely amazing artwork, well-developed characters, original plotline - but very confusing.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
I mean, we never found out anything about Michiru, or Michiru's ring. And what about that bit in the end about Karin being an experiment'? All that's said about that is that she's not a clone, and that whatever they did to her was 'done for her own protection', whatever that means. And why did the Zeus ring react to Yuuki, and then later work for Glasses Guy (love that name, xD)? And what happened to the Himekas? Did one of them die?

All in all, there were many loose ends, but there is a sequel, so I hold out hope. And it really was a wonderful manga, the ending just disappointed me. If nothing else, read it for the art - it's some of the best I've ever seen.

It's ok I guess... but I found myself getting confused at times and even then when I figure it out more "stuff" came around to confuse me... I ended up figuring out the story and the art isn't bad but I guess it could have done better if they had spaced it out more... Epically near the end...

it's okay you can say, the beginning was nice to watch. But... ahwell never mind. Volume 7, hmm never mind either XD. For those who like Pita ten, it's a nice manga to read. Although Karin is more ''agressive'' you could say XD
