Since time immemorial the worship of higher powers has been a cornerstone of human civilization, but as mankind's understanding of the universe grew, so did his technology, and many ancient beliefs were gradually replaced or discarded by one means or another. Not all of them fell by the wayside though, and while some religions adapted their rituals and practices in order to survive in the ever-changing world, others were carefully hidden to keep the old ways alive, or to protect their secrets from being misused by humanity.

Originally a manga by Yamamura Hajime, Kamisama Dolls begins with a rather nightmarish scene in which three children are read more

Here are my honest thoughts about Kamisama Dolls !

The anime can be summarized like this: Several priests from different families fight each-other and every character in this show has his own interesting background. These priests are able to control so called Kamisama dolls and they make funny noises everytime they appear. The characters are likeable and fun to watch and the story is promising at the very beginning.
We are introduced to Kyouhei and his sister who get in conflict with Aki, who was once Kyouhei's best friend and bla bla bla bla bla ...... (Seriously, just read the summary for that ).

I have finished this series and this is an update on my original 4 ep review

Story: 8/10
The story is pretty good. Though i admit when i first read the summary i didn't think it would be. I expected more of a chill anime without any killing, mass murder, psychopaths, and rival clans but i was wrong. It moves at a good pace and development has been very good imo. They're cliffhangers so it makes you want the week to go on by faster. All 13 episodes are either decent or pretty good. The main plot is kind of vague though and that's one thing i read more

Seeing as only the first episode has been released, there's only so much I can say:

Synopsis aside, I was expecting something something light-hearted with a splash of moe, but I couldn't be more wrong.

The intro was done quite well. Granted, I have no idea what in the world is going on (though after watching a bit into the episode, you may begin to make connections), but I'm seeing a lot of death and destruction -- I'm hooked.

The OP song is average, as is the OP itself. Nothing special to me, but I'm don't feel forced to skip through it (though I probably will in read more

Recommendations

Anime: Shinsekai yori
The stories focus around characters from a village that has a deep dark secret, not to mention members of the village have special powers. The art style is similar and has a Gothic art scheme going. 
reportRecommended by Yemi_Hikari
Anime: Higurashi no Naku Koro ni
Both centre around the unique features of a small, remote village and the events that have transpired there. Kamisama Dolls is less severe about it, since the majority of the series takes place in a more urban setting and deals with the repercussions, whereas Higurashi definitely tends toward the worst case scenario -- but as each piece of the backstory for Kamisama Dolls is revealed, it becomes increasing obvious that it's not exactly sunshine and lollipops either.

Anime: Cencoroll
Basically, the main characters can control mecha-like entities and make them fight one another (thus creating a lot of turmoil) but at some point they change their masters. The creatures are to be kept in secret, though in the process more people learn about them.  
reportRecommended by insoo
Anime: Bleach
Both the Anime have a dark story line that progressively gets darker. The latter style of Bleach is similar to the style Kamisama Dolls has. On top of this one of the characters is very similar to Ichimaru Gin... they're both creepy in similar manners. It is also about fighting to protect what you care about.

Anime: Mai-HiME
In both anime the protagonists can telepathically control mechanical monsters and make them fight for them. 
reportRecommended by insoo
Anime: Narutaru: Mukuro Naru Hoshi Tama Taru Ko
Young people linked to strange creatures. All the masters can to see through the eyes of their controlled creatures; both "dolls" and "dragons" are able to fly and bring their masters with them; in either shows there are very much similar fights, battles, and murders done by the "dolls" and "dragons" while under control of human masters.

Also the handled themes are pretty similar.
