Kamisama Hajimemashita also popularly known as Kamisama Kiss is a romantic Japanese anime television series that is an adaptation of a published manga novel with the same name. The series has released two seasons as of now and the fans have been waiting for the latest news and updates on Kamisama Hajimemashita Season 3.
The manga novel was composed and illustrated by artist Julietta Suzuki. The manga series debuted its first volume on 20th February 2008 which was published under the name of Hakusensha company. The series Kamisama Hajimemashita, however, concluded with its twenty-fifth and final volume on 20th May 2016.
Nevertheless, almost a few years later following the release of the manga series initial publication, Kamisama Hajimemashita was announced to be adapted into an anime television series.
The anime version of Kamisama Hajimemashita's first season first made its way to viewers’ screens on 1st October 2012 and was immediately considered to be a hit among the audience along with the fans of the manga series. The first season of the anime series aired thirteen episodes and released their final episode the same year on 24th December.
So it was not a surprise when the anime series was renewed for a second season which eventually hit the screens of the viewers on 6th January 2015. The second season of Kamisama Hajimemashita released twelve episodes and concluded season on 30th March 2015.
It has been almost six years since the last episode of Kamisama Hajimemashita was aired and as of now, there is no news regarding the renewal of Kamisama Hajimemashita Season 3. And regardless of being one of the most popular shojo anime series, TMS Entertainment has presently not announced or confirmed the possibility of Kamisama Hajimemashita Season 3.
One of the main reasons why the production of Kamisama Hajimemashita Season 3 has been delayed is due to the ending of the manga series. The manga series consisted of twenty-five volumes and both the seasons of Kamisama Hajimemashita along with the four special OVA episodes, the anime series covered at least seventeen volumes of the manga novel. Saying that there are still eight volumes that are still waiting to be adapted in the anime series. And if Kamisama Hajimemashita Season 3 doe happens it will mainly be based on those volumes which have enough source material that can build more than twenty new episodes for the upcoming installments of the animated series.
On the other hand, we have to also consider the fact that the four OVA episodes encircled almost the entire storyline of the manga series. TMS Entertainment has also given a rather satisfactory conclusion to the anime series, regardless of having more content that's still left for adaptation.
So there is more than enough source material that a new season can be created for the animated series. We also have to notice that with the high demand and buzz, Kamisama Hajimemashita had created there might be a slight chance that we might get to witness the third season on our screens.
Besides that, the fans who are worried that there is still no update on Kamisama Hajimemashita Season 3 even after the 5-year hiatus should relax a little. On the contrary to the shows created in the United States, the anime series may take quite a long time to return to the screens. Popular animated series such as One-Punch Man along with Log Horizon released new seasons almost four to five years later following the premiere of their prior season. Considering that, there is still hope for Kamisama Hajimemashita Season 3.
The plot of Kamisama Hajimemashita centers around high school student Nanami Momozono. Her father is continuously gambling under her name and because of that a huge debt settles on her and she is forced to be thrown out of her apartment.
Fortunately, she saves a dog who turns out to be an Earth Deity of a shrine, Mikage and he gives Nanami a home to live in. Nevertheless, Nanami soon finds out that she has been appointed as the Earth Deity and meets Mikage’s familiar and yokai by nature, Tomoe. Despite knowing the fact that a relationship between a human and a fox demon is considered to be taboo, Nanami and Tomoe starts falling in love with each other.
The last OVA episode finally showed Nanami and Tomoe getting married along with Akura Ou still stuck in Kirihito's body.
If Kamisama Hajimemashita Season 3 does happen it will most definitely involve the problems Nanami and Tomoe will face after their marriage. New villains to rise in the third season will cause Nanami to stumble upon some difficult incidents.
As mentioned in the above article, there are possibilities that the animation studio might pick up Kamisama Hajimemashita Season 3 owing to its strong fanbase. If Kamisama Hajimemashita Season 3 miraculously does happen, then considering the time for its production then we can expect to not be released anytime sooner than 2022 or 2023.
Kamisama Hajimemashita has released two seasons as of now including twenty-five episodes. The first season consisted of thirteen episodes while the second season comprised twelve episodes. Additionally, it also premiered four OVA episodes with a run time of around thirty minutes.
Both the seasons of Kamisama Hajimemashita can be streamed on international streaming networks such as Funimation along with Amazon Prime as well as AnimeLab. The series has been both subbed and dubbed in English which are available on these online platforms.
