According to MAL, Gosick ended on the very day Kamisama started airing. HMMM. There must've been some kind of loli detective craze over in Japan, at the time. (Either that or the anime people were running low on material to sell to those looking for 'daughters', at the time, and opted for the not-so-popular aging detective genre. Idk.)
These two are built on the same foundations: In both there's an all-knowing reclusive loli, solving every case with their intellect/deus ex machina powers. They recruit Mr. Plain Average to be their masochistic doormats; mostly only existing to go from A-to-B on command and have things thrown at them from time to time.
Gosick has more than in the way of romance; Kamisama only offering tsundere rage over teddy sniffing. Gosick also has its heroine display adult maturity, as well as be childish over sweets... where as Ms. Kamisama wears teddy bear attire and, outside of case-rambling, might as well be the preteen she appears to be. BUT, if you're proud of being unemployed and not receiving education, Kamisama is for you.
Both of these Anime feature reclusive girls who happen to solve the mysteries around them by gathering the "knowledge" around them and simulating the fragments so that they will eventually come too. Gosick is set between the two World Wars and Kamisama no Memochou is in a modern setting. While the girl in Gosick is actually older then a young girl, both girls have qwirks, one for sweets, the other for stuffed animals. Each one is also very moody and can be disagreeable when they don't get their ways.
Both deal with a reclusive girl and a boy she treats as a combo gofer-assistant solving mysteries. Although the settings and time periods are markedly different, the way the primary characters interact and the involving degree of the cases and character-derived backstory are quite alike.
Alice is similar to Victorica and Narumi is similar to Kujou. And both series are about mysteries.
Both are about solving mysteries. They have similar main characters as well (Victorique = Alice, Kujo = Narumi).
The main difference, I suppose, is that Gosick is set in 1924 whereas Kamisama no Memochou is set in modern times.
-Both Alice and Victorique are similar in that they both are secluded from society
-Both solve mysteries
-and both have assistants, Alice has Narumi and Victorique has Kujo
-Both animes are very good and if you enjoy mysteries being solved then I recommend either you watch both
They both feature detailed detective work, however Kamisama no Memochou is modern whereas Gosick is set in the 20's.
When I watched the first episode of Memo-chou, I felt it was very very similar to Gosick. I mean, look at the female protagonists. Both are bossy loli characters that solve the mysteries. Though Gosick didn't have a cast of characters that assist in solving the mysteries, Memo-chou does, and it successfully introduces them in a forty-five minute first episode. Is that amazing or what?
Also, the male protagonists of of both anime are reluctantly dragged into the mysteries. The art styles aren't that similar, but they have somewhat similar supporting characters as well as main ones.
Ayaka is very similar to Cecile-sensai, as she seems to be the only one able to force Alice to do things that others would be scared of trying.
Although the characters are very similar, there is one solid difference that might put off a few people.
Gosick is more horror-oriented while Kamisama no Memo-chou is more crime and actual detective work.
Despite these differences, I implore you to check out the other. They're both great.
Victorique reconstruct case by reading books and collecting chaos(pieces of information(sometimes are info from the paper or collected by Kujo and sometimes both of them) in a secluded area(library).Yuuko,as a hikkikomori detective,solving case by using internet and information from her helper,Narumi in a secluded area(her bedroom).Both heroine are incredibily smart and has remarkable deductive ability.
•Both are about Mystery
•Both feature a moe/loli female as the main character
•Both have many different settings
○Kamisama no Memochou is more futuristic and modern time wise than Gosick.
Gosick - Detactive work in 1900
Kamisama no Memochou - Detective work in 2011
If you loved Gosick, you will definitely like Kamisama no Memochou!
They both have a loli detective, the plots are quite similar, and Narumi from Kamisama and Kujo from Gosick are the same. So are Victorique and Alice, they both are lolita tsundere.
Girls solves mysteries, something like a female version of Sherlock Holmes. Intelligent, insightful, humorous and with difficulty to express their feelings.
The only difference between them, is Alice (Kamisama no Memochou) is a modern version de Blois Victorique (Gosick)
in both they're trying to solve cases, both protagonist are moe, inteligent and giving lots of explanations :3
Both of them are animes about a "mysterious" girl, which are really good in to crack a case.
Quite similar indeed. Both have a genius female detective, a lead male protagonist that accidentally become the assistant of the detective, and in both anime has similar romance story line.
The only differences is the setting. Both time line and place are different. If you like a story that involve mystery but at the same time has well arranged plot, watch both it.
Both animes are about a girl who gathers pieces of information from mysteries around them and put them together to solve cases. Both girls are exceptionally smart, have very sharp senses, and were both brought up in complete isolation from the outside world.
Moreover, in both animes the girl meets a boy which she has much info about and indirectly asks that boy to help her with her cases except that in Gosick the relationship between both develops more romantically while in the latter, both the boy and the girl remain on friendly terms throughout the TV series.
A big difference between both is that Gosick takes place centuries ago while the latter is more modern like and is where technology plays significant role.
Solving mysteries, a girl with long hair that likes cute things,
Go sick is based oin 1920s while Kamisama no Memochou is more modern,
Both have a male side-kick/assistant who does everything for the girl,
Girl is mainly short with long hair and really smart.
Detective stories = checked
Romance = checked *maybe a litle from Gosick
Lolita Girl = checked
overall the story is quite same, the main character is a girl and they like to solve a mystery and has the boy main character helping them. but the difference is the place setting, for go sick it's victorian style while kamisama no memochou just use the usual setting place in japan. :)
- Both mains are boys who find detective lolis.
- Memu is in a preset age; Gosick is before second world war.
- Both are based on detective work.
Of course, both shows feature a loli detective who works with an assistant(s) to solve mysteries!
Some notable differences: Memochou takes place in modern era (Japan) thus we can relate to the technology era that is shown. Gosick takes place in 1924 (Europe) so it's more of a "classical" mystery. Gosick also has more romance.
My personal take (these are merely opinions):
- Both of the female MCs are cute, although Alice is probably cuter.
- Victorique is more overpowered; is able to solve mysteries without technological backup.
- Regarding the above statement, I personally enjoyed Gosick more, especially considering it has the much stronger "whodunit?" element. However Memochou is more comparable to our time and easier to watch, depending on viewpoint..
Simply, if you enjoyed one show, chances are you'll enjoy the other~
If you liked kamisama no memochou then you will love gosick since its better in every aspect.Both have mystery and loli leads
A transfer student meets a smart young girl and they solve mysteries together.
Both Alice and Victorique speak down to Narumi and Kujo while trying to hide their feelings for them.
Both shows can be pretty dark at times but have relatively happy endings.
Gosick and Kamisama no Memochou shares similarities in terms of mystery genre, characters and storyline.
Gosick has Victorique, a goth-lolita blonde girl who is fond on literature, sweets and cute things, and excels on forensic and plays the role of the detective. Kamisama no Memochou has Alice, who is also a lolita girl who is also fond on sweets and cute things but also she excels on computer-related skills and forensic roles. They have also male assistant who helps them to solve different crimes.
In terms of the storyline and genre (even though both stories occur on different time settings), both stories is involved on solving mysteries and crimes that cannot explained easily by a normal human being.
If you are a mystery fan, you should check his out!
Both of these Anime are done in simular styles as each other and they start off being told from the same persepective, the point of view of the male character. There is a mystery element to both and the characters in both series have their own qwirks.
Both centre around the darker aspects of life in urban Tokyo and the mysteries its streets hold. Similarly, both start off seeming fairly straightforward but get increasingly involved and reveal an ever-increasing amount of shocking and intriguing backstory that puts characters and events in a new light each time. Durarara may not have KamiMemo's more organized and concise sequential arc structure, but otherwise the setting, ambiance, and general vibe of each is quite similar.
They have the same urban feel and gangster kids who investigate mysteries.
*This is a three way reccomendation, as this (likely threw coincidence) has taken popular elements out of Durarara and Deathnote, added a few common cliche character types and tried to turn it into something new*
*Kamisama almost meets Durarara!! and Deathnote in the middle; whether or not it is of equal or even half good quailty is still yet to be seen*
Kamisama' and Durarara:
- New highschool boy with a passive and pleasant personality
- Intellect matching physical power in times of need
- A city where crime appears ripe and the out-of-the-ordinary is witnesed
- Unusual females we're bound to learn more about later
- Technology is a way of life and a weapon
- The art is virtually the same, from the characters, to the scenery
- Main male is more-or-less elevated to high status early
- 'Angel fix' drug, whilst Durarara has an angel in it
A high school boy who just moved into the big city is pulled into a group of odd people. Mysteries/conflicts happen throughout each series and these groups of people seek to solve/fix them.
The two have the same feeling and background to it. The setting is the city in both. The male lead are very similar, plain, and are very blunt when they speak their minds. Daisuke Ono voices a character in both that are pretty alike. They're both pretty awesome~
Well both stories are told in a similar narrative style cept for drrr being told from the perspective of many of the characters while kami sama is only told from the point of view of Narumi, and Both shows are really the stories how people are spending their lives added with a good amount of story
Kamisama no Memochu is basically Durarara!! meets Gosick and Veronica Mars. Both series have a modern Neo-Noir feel into it and both have Daisuke Ono as a violent man.
Kamisama no memochou reminds me of durarara!! at the first episode =)
Narumi is just like Mikado, they both moved into a city, meet a lot of people (with their own unique character), and so the story begin(?).
Both of these anime give off the same type of vibe. It's about bad events which are occurring in the city of Tokyo and are brought to attention to the protagonist and companions. They both have a comedic sense to it while still holding the serious genre.
I believe if you enjoyed this, Durarara!! would be a good anime to watch next.
These are similar because there is a variety of different characters who you get to know though out the series. Kamisama no Memochou can also relate to DRRR!! because it is set in a city-like atmosphere where their are gangs and underground drugs. In Kamisama, you also follow an average boy who is just getting used to city life.
Tangled relations between characters, action takes place at local territories, gang's themes.
Although there are many differences there are a few similarities as well. Both stories involve a normal high school boy who just moved in to the city and gets involved with a strange group of friends. It also has gangs involved in the story and a character who is omniscient(Alice/Izaya). Durarara has some elements that can be classified as mythical/fantasy while Kamisama no memochou is more realistic and deals with more mature issues but they both set a similar mood.
Like Durarara, a group of people are fixing problems and such in their everyday life. The storyline's seem to connect, and the character's are similar. Even though Kamisama no Memochou isn't as good as Durarara, it is still worth watching.
Kamisama no Memochou has a saying that the dead live on only through the work of a detective or the work of a writer. Hyouka... despite not having as dark of mysteries as Kamisama no Memochou runs along this train of thought to start off with. Both have similar art styles on top of this.
Both anime are about mysteries, which are solving by a team.
Main female characters have a similar appearance.
Both are mysteries, and they have a similar art style. If you like one of them, you'll like the other.
Both series contain the mystery genre theme which could be appealing to viewers who are into the detective fiction types.
Both series' main protagonists have a strange personality. The rest of the characters also have contrasting personalities but shares the common idea of solving mysteries.
Both series contain comedy, drama, and mystery.
Mystery anime with fascinating characters and good interaction between them.
Both show's genre is around Mystery and the main character of both show always solve the Mystery with friends or a least together, the art are alike in a really good way since i love the art in Kamisama no Memochou and the reason why i started watching this show is because i really like it's art......
-The main Character looks like in Hyouka
-Mystery genre (detective type)
Both anime focuses purely at solving mystery, crime, etc. at first
Both will show their love towards someone at the end of each anime
*This is a three way reccomendation, as this (likely threw coincidence) has taken popular elements out of Durarara and Deathnote, added a few modern cliche character types and tried to turn it into something new*
*Kamisama almost meets Durarara!! and Deathnote in the middle; whether or not it is of equal or even half good quailty is still yet to be seen*
Kamisama and Deathnote:
- Starts with young, passive highschool boys who come across as intelligent
- A 'high power' who goes by one name and acts threw technology
- Creepy smart child who still harbours innocents playing the high-up boss (Alice = Near)
- Same boss is quirky and enjoys sweet treats (Alice = L, the guy Near replaced)
- Immoral activity plays on the minds of the mains
- A decent, yet not too close relationship with his family (basically, he'd get away with a lot, parents not knowing better)
- 'Memo pad of the Gods', 'Deathnote' (a notebook of a death god)
Both animes, main detective char, uses unorthodox techniques, to solve mysteries, though Kami-sama uses a loli enuff said
Both animes have great detectives and have great plots twists and turns but kamisama had a better ending.
If you like psychological animes, this is for you. Both have similar clever main characters, one is high schooler and the other one is a young NEET, who does all the solving. The difference between these two is that Death Note is darker when it comes to the story, while Kamisama no Memochou can be in borderline dark plot.
Death Note has supernatural, including these Gods, which they called Shinigami and a magical notebook. The main character is just a simple high school student, who goes along with his daily life until he encounters an odd notebook. A studious person and is seemingly indifferent to his family. Our guy, Light Yagami, he is a resourceful one and he uses even the smallest things around him as his weapon against his considered enemies. He is always precise in his decisions and he only solves mysteries more likely for his own benefits.
Kamisama no Memouchou revolves around a young NEET named Alice. According to her appearance, she is around in elementary or in middle school, a loli mastermind, who sits in front with those bunch of computer monitors while solving a case and she is surrounded with plushies . She helps anyone who asks a request from her and solves a case without anything in return. She does all the complex mind work while her friends or colleagues do the action. This anime doesn't involve any supernatural activities comparing it to Death Note. The events in this anime could happen in real life situation and both of them have serious plot when they solve a case.
If you look for good art Death Note has a decent one. Both have good plots and characters, so I think this will suit your preference.
Cute little bossy smart loli girl wrapped up in mysteries alongside a level headed, not-too-clued-up male (typcal tsundere victum) who has just stumbled into the situation and attained the status sidekick.
Both girls appear to be gothic loli's.
If you're a fan detective fiction, then definitely check these two series out. The two main characters are similar in both series in terms of characteristics. Additionally, there seems to be slight sense of affection between the protagonist and the heroine of both series. Nonetheless, if you're a fan of mystery, then these two anime(s) might spark some interest in you.
Both show is about detective & solve cases, the heroine in both show are cute little mysteries girl (gothic loli's)
This too for GOSICK
- both have gothic lolita as heroine
- the action take places in the past
- both are about mysteries
- perfect songs
- character that have histories misteries
- have character similar to "Sherlock Holmes", but girl
Both of them have a Group, and well The main character loved the other girl than the girl who likes him.
And well both series character got serious problems in their life
Both anime are connected to stuff happens after life, in Angel Beats a group are trying to find what do they truly desire in their life andKamisama is all about solving case that's related to people who no longer live in the world or at least don't know where they are.
And the main male protagonist in both show don't know what do they truly want or what they are doing in the start and both of them turns out to be someone awesome :P
The male protagonist is the newcomer of a group, which consists of awesome and likeable characters. Both shows just kinda have the same feel. Kamisama no Memochou doesn't really go into the backstories of different characters, but there are still really serious moments. And Angel beats is really touching, though it mostly shows toward the end. They're also both short and have a baseball episode. And they have a lot of the same dubbed voice actors.
Bot these shows have a great mystery set up. They both have smart, but physically restraint heros. Conan has a deeper story and better mysteries, but Kamisama is a fun watch bringing more personality to the characters at times. kamisama's mysteries arent as deep and difficult as conan's but that can also work to its advantage because you feel like you can "win" more often watching it as well. If you dont mind the loli and schoolgirl like giddyness, kamisama is a great show for anyone craving more mysteries.
Both series feature young detectives, but "Kamisama no Memochou" breaks from the norm as the detective is female instead of male.
Both are on detectives
Both detectives are young teenagers .. well sort of ...
Both have maen characther that joining with weird group
Both maen character have same seiyuu
Both weird group have a gigolo, NEET, etc
Both is Interesting
- have great art.
- male protagonists end up getting mixed in a weird group of people.
- are about an average anime guy, who ends up taking care of a somewhat genius girl.
- male protagonists feel useless compared to the other characters.
both series have a group of NEET that supports the main characters
Higashi is a lot more light headed and bizarre while Kamisama is more modern and yazuka focused but both share similar things like the whole "NEET club", interesting mysteries, and the amazing setting of modern Japan. While I like Higashi a lot more, Kamisama is also well done.
Both have this weird intelligent girl with an average protag working together, with some side characters helping out. They solve some mysteries and chase some baddies. Both are very similar in the atmosphere and overall feeling in the show. It's not too intelligent, but has enough content to satisfy the viewer.
Young girl who seems to know everything helps solve mysteries with very adult themes. Kamisama is more humorous, while Denpa is more dark.
Let's just say that these animes are about detectives? Okay? Now tantei opera milky Holmes is about 4 girls while Kamisama no memochou has about like 10 girl / guy . Tantei opera is Moe so you can't compare this to Kamisama how ever i still recommend this.
Yes the genres are completely different, you can expect one to be more intense/dramatic while the other is easy going. But the enjoyment for both of them are roughly the same, the characters have a similar connection with each other plus the main females are adorable.
Both include NEETs (No employment, education, training)
Both have a young girl with superhuman intelligence
They have a similar art style
They have similar comedic elements
Both maincharacters kind of wander off all the time, dealing with mysterious events, that makes both similiar.
Mystery is the theme in both of these series so for you fans of detective fiction out there, these two anime(s) are definitely something worth checking out.
Many of the cases have plot twists that tests the protagonists to various points.
And of course, there is drama, comedy, and small hints of affection (not necessary romance although it may be interpreted that way).
a show where the group work to solve mysteries and both have some cool charaters.
the difference is in kamisama no memoucho there are no super power,
also in hamatora there are more *cool* boys,good sight for female watchers.
The two series are fill with mystery, thriller, and gore. The main characters tries to unravel a case and find the culprits. Very detective-base and psychological, and will keep you thinking constantly.
The job of a writer is to tell the stories and bring people back to life. Both main characters deal with similar situations and growing up.
Both of these are gothic styled detective series that deal with the psycological asspect of a persons psyche to solve the case, whether real or supernatural. They speak for the dead because the dead can't do it.
The NEET of Kamisama no Memochou remind me greatly of the characters from Gokusen in the fact that they don't fit in. It also involves Yakuza that is not normal.
Both have hard to solve mysteries, that there is always more to then first meets the eye.
Let's just say that both involves guys who's is living a boring school life and all of the sudden got themselves into something which spells "TROUBLE" and the best part for them is.......they're enjoying it.
Kamisama no Memochou and Sasami-san have similar aspects to them such as, the NEET factor and shut in they're strictly bound to being indoors all the time. Also both girls have a very high connection to the internet and have surveillance cameras. Kamisama no Memochou falls more into the mystery, drama category where as Sasami-san is a category of it's own.
Although these are not too similar, The main characters are very much alike, they are little delicate girls. Who have almost everything done for them, and don't have to do much themselves, but that makes troubles for them later on...
• Similar Character design
The theme of mystery is something hard to ignore in both series in both of these detective fiction series. Comedy and drama are also present as well as some emotional moments. Both of these series are a must-see for anime fans into the mystery genre.
