Manga Review: Kamisama Kiss Volume 4 by Julietta Suzuki

 Publsher: Viz Media

Goodreads Synopsis:

Nanami has all kinds of new responsibilities she doesn’t understand, dangers she’s unaware of, and a cranky ex-familiar who’s…actually pretty hot. What’s a new-fledged godling to do?


I'm having a hard time writing about this series. I don't know why. I am really liking this series, and am always really excited for the next one.
Anyway, within the first chapter of this volume, Nanami realizes that she likes Tomoe and then in the second chapter, she tells him. I knew in previous volumes that there were feeling forming, it was obvious, but I definitely wasn't expecting it to happen so fast. And after Tomoe and Kurama had that talk, I didn't think the outcome was going to be very good. So I was surprised that I found it quite adorable. It is quite improbable of anything like that happening while someone is falling, but I still really liked it.
In the rest of the volume, Tomoe and Nanami are having problems and then Tomoe gets captured by this sea monster that he has a debt to and so Nanami has to get him back. This kind of thing has happened before, and so I didn't enjoy it as much as I could have, but I still thought it was good.
This series just makes me happy. I like Tomoe, how he's protective of Nanami but also so harsh and mean to everyone. He's kind of adorable in that... abandoned, yet riled up puppy sort of way. You know what I mean? And I like Nanami, mostly. She's simple minded, and nice and genuine and all that. The girl main character in manga don't seem to stick out to me as much as some of the others, I guess, unless she's very different or annoying, I guess.
