Well well well, what is there to say about Kamichama Karin? A lot, actually. I was skeptical about this anime at first, because I thought from the picture/description it was for little kids, but I was so so so wrong. Kamichama Karin is a confusing anime, with many twists and turns, and by the end of it you're going to have your eyebrow raised and your mouth hanging open, saying "...WHAT???" But above all else, you're going to love it. Kamichama Karin is about a young girl who is given the power of a goddess through a magic ring. I won't give any spoilers away, read more

An absolutely wonderful and romantic anime, yet funny and intense at the same time. You really can't miss It. The story captures your attention and draws you in from the first episode to the very last. To be honest, the story is very serious at some points, but that is one of the reasons why its so outstanding.

I'd say the most interesting thing about Kamichama Karin is the confusion and the things that make you wonder, "Whats happening right now? I don't get it at all" It leaves you dumbstruck for some parts, but the math behind it is simply amazing. This anime also includes read more

That's right, it's Sailor Moon Greek Mythology time! At first, this series was a parody to magical girl anime, but it turned serious. (The opening scene is crack at it's finest when Karin screams, "I am God") One transformation, she receives a heart-shaped thing that looks similar (more like identical) to Ichigo's Strawberry Bell. Besides the knock-off shojo series, the story improves with time. To begin with, the show doesn't show much interest in the story and the characters are a little generic: heroine is clumsy and a ball of energy; hero is short-tempered and strong; another protagonist is a damsel in distress; antagonist is read more

I couldn't help but instantly fall in love with this anime, which was partly the fault of my love for Pita Ten, another work by Koge Donbo.

The story, on the surface seems like any other super cute magical girl anime, but the darker, mysterious theme beneath that really grabbed me, just like in Pita Ten. (more so the manga, though)

Not to mention the tons of secrets that Karin and Kazune's relationship hides. They slowly unveiled, leaving you to predict what was really happening, and who really knew what. Not much more can be said about that without spoilers, but it was absolutely amazing. read more

Kamichama Karin features kids with the power of gods, Gakuen Alice features kids with special magic powers. Lots of things happen while they are at school. And well, Karin and Mikan (main protagonists respectivly^^) look alike and their characters are quite similar too. Same goes for other characters! Humor is quite alike, and of course the kawaii-ness factor is very, very high in both shows....means frequently appearing animals and various frilly costumes for the girls, cute/cool outfits for the boys. 
Both the main characters have low self esteem, and by transforming, they learn more about themselves; who they were, and who they could be. If you enjoyed one, you'd enjoy the other kawaii series. 
Both are Magic Shoujo animes, with the main girl character becoming the hero by obtaining some sort of magic power, which she was already destined to have. Also both series are filled with middle school kids and cute magical creatures. In both series there is a guy that falls in love with the main girl character even though they are always fighting with each other. ^_^" 
Both have very nice romance aspects and yet the quality comedy!! >W< karin's expressions remind me of kirari too. Although it doesn't have the whole idol theme, and its more of a parody of a magical girl anime, kamichama karin is a great romance-comedy to watch! ^ ^ 
Both stories have God in the plot, the heroines' "boyfriends" can transform, and both titles begin with "Kami." Could it get any similar to that?  
Both of these have a nice twist at the end and have a little more romance than the typical magical girl anime. If you like one I think you would most likely enjoy the other. Both have a cute love story and characters fighting to preserve what they hold dear in life.
