Characters & Voice Actors
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, but this is the first anime I've ever seen where if you don't know the spoiler, then you'll look at this anime and think "This really doesn't look worth watching." Trust me, it is. This isn't your typical magical girl fluff.
CONFUSING. But I liked it. Like I said, I don't want to spoil it for anyone. I love Karin's "I AM GOD!" and I read that the author started Kamichama Karin as a joke to the magical girl genre. But nonetheless, the story turns pretty serious, even though this anime started out as a joke.
I LOVED the art. The characters are adorable, with huge eyes and sweet faces. Their outfits are so cute, especially their Lolita-esque school uniforms. The art is quite good, overall.
Well for sound. I loved everyone's voice except for Himeka. Karin's is just adorable and Kujyou's is great!
Here's my main complaint. HIMEKA. I cannot STAND Himeka's character. She starts off really cute in the first episode, but you'll soon find that her voice will drive you crazy. She talks so slowly, and ends all of her sentences with the same breathy, high pitched noise. Plus, her character is very annoying because you can never guess if she is good or bad, what she means to Kujyou, etc. Take Himeka out of this (or at least fix her personality/voice) and you get a fantastic anime.
Overall, if you're like me and you've just finished watching Wedding Peach and Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch, and are a huge Sailor Moon fan, but don't know what to watch, this is the anime for you. 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 clever and easily angered. Keep watching the show despite the strangness-- it gets better.
What makes the show: the artwork. Koge Donbo (Pita Ten, Di Gi Chartat) created the manga so it's no surprise that the characters make people scream, "KAWAII!" Karin's hair is wavy with cute, olive leaves tied as ribbons for her two ponytails while the eyes, faces, etc. for the characters her age are simply adorable. The cute, gothic lolita school uniforms make the viewer want to go into the television, grab the outfit, and take it home for themselves. Nyx's outfit is an outfit many people would wish to cosplay as since it has the gothic, 19th century motif. The boy's winter uniforms, however, look more like Harry Potter, only stranger with the large bow at the front. Even though the beginning is generic and boring, the artwork makes one keep watching the show.
The opening is very gothic and dark, which shows the good verse evil in the series, but in time the evil is just trying to protect something. Like most shojo anime: the bad guys are just misunderstood. The theme sounds more like a broken record that's about to end it's time; (or a warped tape) it takes some getting used to. The Ending, however, shows cute chibi's off to the side spinning in circles and has a cheerful melody one can enjoy.
The background music has some violin and other classical instruments, which makes the show more enjoyable.The voice of Himeka Kujyou (Noriko Shitaya) adds to the kawaii effect as her voice is soft and sweet. The Japanese cast suits the characters they portray, but Kirio Karasuma's (Shintaro Asanuma ) voice is too deep and mature for a fifteen year old. They did a great job "becoming the charater" and using the character's personality. No countries outside of Japan has lisenced this anime.
The animation has some computer 3-D animation, but the animation isn't something to get excited over. The pallet is bright, with some patel shades to give it the shojo style. It's not horrible, just good.
Kamichama Karin will make one chuckle at the jokes they throw in (which are many) and smile at the cuteness of the artwork. For those who like shojo anime aimed at a younger audience, this show is the show to see. Pretty much it's summarised in one word: cute. It's a show meant for girls aged eight to 16 or those who are into kawaii characters.
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.
A girl with pig tails and a special power, a boy with powers that wreck his body, and various similar voice actors. If you liked one, you would surely like the other because they are so similar in plot and characters and cuteness.^_^
It's very similar! You gotta love Gakuen Alice & Kamichama Karin
The girls both are similar they both are rookies when it comes to their powers yet sometimes they can manage.They both are very caring and when you want to pick at fight they will both beat you.With the help of their friends they always have evreything they could possibly want.This anime has romance as well but it has more romance than this one so far at least (I`ve only seen 12 eps.) They both have it hard sometimes but they break through.These animes are both adventurious and mysterious.Something else that they have in commen both have no parents,they both have pigtails,they both can out mouth someone,and both shows have 26 eps.
Because the character are similar...Karin-Mikan, Kazune-Natsume
Very similar for characters, comedy, and genres.
Both involve magical girls (and boys), are set at school, are long 26 episodes, and have the same sweet, cute, childish mood to them.
Karin & Mikan and Kazune & Natsume are definitely very alike, not only their characteristics, but also their relationships.
its cute. and it both involves girls with powers that they arent familiar with. they both discover their true powers with the help of friends and find some sort of love on the way.
Both have magical girls and are a bit on the slow side (but lovable!) who are trying to make something of themselves.
The main characters are quite the same and there's this happy-comedy feeling in both of them.
Haven't watched Kamichama Karin in a while but I remember it was quite similar! You'll be able to tell from the 1st episode how similar it is! Watch if you liked both!
They are both cute anime's and they are kind of smiliar and they both are a must see I just "LOVED" them.
Characters are really similar - main character karin and mikan are both happy-go-lucky type, being a little clumsy and clueless. Both will fall for cold guy who they open up a bit with time.
Kamichama Karin tells a story about girl named Karin who has lost her parents and living with aunt. She meets up with a guy and soon discovers that she has magical god-powers.
Gakuen Alice talks about girl named Mikan who has also lost her both parents and who lives with her grandpa. She goes to the Alice Academy to find her best friend and soon discovers she has an Alice - power that only few people have.
I would say from my own experience that both of these animes are really cute and make you want to be part of it.
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. ^_^"
The basic premise of Magical Girl and Romance, of finding new powers and teaming together.. Not to mention Himeka and Tomoyo could practically be sisters. n_n;
a magical girl and romance along with it
The character designs are very similar, as is the character situations (even if the story is completely different). They have a similar feel.
Same genres (magic, shoujo, school, romance), similar characters (Sakura-Mikan, Shaoran-Natsume, Tomoyo-Himeka), and overall very comparable series.
Well for one thing the genres are similar:Romance,Comedy,Magical Girl.Also they both have this kinda "un-noticed love" thing.Both Sakura and Karin didn't realize their true true feelings until way later on in the series,like near the end.
...a romantic comedy, magical girl anime. Both these anime's have really kawaii charaters and not to mention some bishies. A lot of transformation are shown not only by our heroine but also with the other charas.
I really love the romance portrayed by the main charas in both series. And the main girl characters, are pretty much similar, clumsy yet powerful in a sense...and way dense.
Kazune and Karin fight along side each other with the help of Himeka and friends. It's the same base for Card Captor where Sakura and Syaoran fight along side each other with the help of Tomoyo. They all help to make themselves stronger in both anime.
