As a rule, in order to determine the possibility of renewal, the best way is to take a look at the source of the anime. Kamisama Kiss is based on the manga of the same name, written by Julietta Suzuki. The manga currently contains 25 volumes, the latter of which has been issued on August 19, 2016. In fact, it's a bad signal since the manga doesn't seem to be ongoing. No new volumes have been released in the recent years. Both two seasons together consisted of 25 episodes, the number which is equal to the quantity of the volumes in the original manga series + 4 OVA episodes have aired already. As a result, the source seems to be exhausted.
On the contrary, Kamisama Kiss has received an excellent response from the viewers. The first season of the anime holds a score of 8.13/10 based on about 154,000 votes. The 2nd chapter has a rating of 8.26/10 > 86,600 votes. Without a doubt, Kamisama Kiss deserves a new season. Nonetheless, looks like there is no source material for another television adaptation. Therefore, even despite such an excellent reception from the target audience, the franchise looks completed.
In addition, the latest news on the official website of the anime is dated August 5, 2014, while the latest official Tweet published is dated May 19, 2017. Summing up, unfortunately, the anime series came to its logical end, and, most likely, won't return for another television season. However, we still don't rule out the renewal. Our primary goal is to give you some clues on the subject of Kamisama Kiss Season 3 based on the facts. No doubt, we might be wrong. Therefore, in the best case scenario, if the TMS Entertainment studio announces the renewal, we will update this page. Stay tuned for updates, we will keep you informed.

As a result, Nanami has no money to pay rent for a room she lived in, and now is homeless. While sitting on a park bench thinking about her future, Nanami pays attention to a stranger, who climbs onto a tree while escaping a dog. The stranger invites Nanami to live in his home in exchange for her help to get rid of the dog. It turns out that his house is nothing but an abandoned shrine for worship, inhabited by various spirits. Later, Nanami learns from Tomoe that Mikage, the stranger who has invited her is in fact the Earth Deity of the shrine, and he bestowed upon her the opportunity to be the new deity.
