The ninth issue of Hana to Yume magazine revealed that Kamisama Kiss (Kamisama Hajimemashita) will be getting a special chapter. Julietta Suzuki, the author of the original manga series, will publish a special short chapter of her manga in the magazine's The Hana to Yume sister magazine on April 25. The news was reported by AnimeNewsNetwork via twitter.

The manga series was originally launched in 2008, written and illustrated by Julietta Suzuki and serialized by Hakusensha in the shōjo manga magazine Hana to Yume. It ran from February 20, 2008 to May 20, 2016, totaling 25 volumes. It inspired an anime adaptation by TMS Entertainment which began airing in October 2012, which was renewed for a second season premiered in 2015.

Here's the plot of the series according to MAL:

High schooler Nanami Momozono has quite a few problems of late, beginning with her absentee father being in such extreme debt that they lose everything. Downtrodden and homeless, she runs into a man being harassed by a dog. After helping him, she explains her situation, and to her surprise, he offers her his home in gratitude. But when she discovers that said home is a rundown shrine, she tries to leave; however, she is caught by two shrine spirits and a fox familiar named Tomoe. They mistake her for the man Nanami rescued—the land god of the shrine, Mikage. Realizing that Mikage must have sent her there as a replacement god, Tomoe leaves abruptly, refusing to serve a human.

Rather than going back to being homeless, Nanami immerses herself in her divine duties. But if she must keep things running smoothly, she will need the help of a certain hot-headed fox. In her fumbling attempt to seek out Tomoe, she lands in trouble and ends up sealing a contract with him. Now the two must traverse the path of godhood together as god and familiar; but it will not be easy, for new threats arise in the form of a youkai who wants to devour the girl, a snake that wants to marry her, and Nanami's own unexpected feelings for her new familiar.
