Kamisama Dolls Ep 1
Initial impression – good
Kyouhei’s family has allowed him to do the unthinkable – go to a university in Tokyo. His village has always guarded a secret ability to summon gods to fight on their behalf. It then comes as a complete surprise when his little sister Utao, arrives at his apartment to inform him that the insane god summoner Aki, has escaped from his town’s prison and is coming after Kyouhei. But Kyouhei is no longer involved in the traditions of his village, so what could Aki want?
Kamisama Dolls presents itself well in the first episode with a nice balance of drama, unrequited love, mystery, and action to solidify itself as a must-watch this season. The music for the opening is well done, too.
