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

Decent enough time killer but it has a few problems.

So Kamisama Dolls is kind of a Meca action/drama with a bit of harem thrown in for good measure. Some of the characters are "seki" which means they can control the meca with their minds. The premise is reasonably interesting and the action kind of proceeds how you would expect but the show does have a few issues.

Well first of all one of the things this show does well is the sound. The background music was pretty good as well as the cool singing that the mecha does when its fighting. I personally enjoyed the intro 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 ).

In my opinion the read more

I just read some review about Kamisama Dolls, and, yeah, I saw the score too. It was quite funny so I'll talk my mind here.

Kamisama Dolls, at first it seems like a good anime. Art okay, Sound that you don't even hear -which is neither good or bad-, story seems great... Well, the characters are pretty shitty but Aki is here so you kind of find some comfort.

That's what you think when you've finished to watch the first episode.

But... You keep going on to just find out that while Kamisama Dolls makes 13 episodes, it could have be only 4. You're overbored most of the read more

Recommendations

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. 
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. 
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. 
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. 
In both anime the protagonists can telepathically control mechanical monsters and make them fight for them.

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.
