Nanami Momozono is alone and homeless after her dad skips town to evade his gambling debts and the debt collectors kick her out of her apartment. So when a man she's just saved from a dog offers her his home, she jumps at the opportunity. But it turns out that his place is a shrine, and Nanami has unwittingly taken over his job as a local deity!

Nanami has all kinda of new responsibilities she doesn't understand, dangers she's unaware of, and a cranky ex-familiar who's... actually pretty hot. What's a new-fledged godling to do?

We take a look at "Kamisama Hajimemashita"

As some of you, who've been reading my reviews know; I have for a long time, been attempting to understand the teenage mind. After all, I was one once, ummm ... around the late 1960's. That was another time. Those were the days when a college graduate could find the United States on a colored World Globe. These days, 48% of college grads can't; actual statistic. In a very real sense, most people of that stripe today; can't find their own butt with both hands. Which explains why some can't properly analyze anime very read more

A young girl is abandoned by her father who owes money and is left to fend for herself. This sounds like it’s an excuse for the parents to not care what happens to their child while strange things are around them. It’s cliché but I can’t think of any other way they could have walked around this. The fact of the matter is that they had to get rid of the parents one way or another and they picked one of the two ways they could have done it. That or make them dead and have her an orphan but that one is used even read more

With the new season upon us, I thought I'd take the time to re-write a review I once deleted.

There may be very minor spoilers, so please, be aware.

Ah, Kamisama Kiss. My one and eternal anime-enemy. I didn't think much when starting it, and just thought of it as another one of those shoujo girl-meets-supernatural guy and falls in love. Well, I wasn't necessarily wrong on that aspect. However, diving into it as the episodes moved along, I noticed disturbingly nostalgic details that I've seen before.

Story (60/100)—Nothing too exciting. A regular high school girl gets thrust into a world she is unfamiliar with, and read more

(This has been adapted from my reddit thread)

When you think about it, one's home is a very precious thing. It's a safe haven. It's private. It contains the parts of one's life he or she loves the most, including family or that newly imported figure. When someone says that the atmosphere feels "homely," it's because at that moment, it is reminding him or her of that one place where he or she can truly be at peace. Sadly, some people don't have such a location. Others still are forced to change it. Within Kamisama Hajimemashita is a story depicting finding one's home with the help read more

Both have:
- A Highschool girl that moves to the house of the main lead.
- A main lead that is a kitsune (fox spirit) and had a darker personality in the past.
- Main lead serves the girl even though she has powers.
- Other youkai join them in the house as friends.
- Slow Romance and comedy.

It gives the same feeling that Inuyasha gives but doesn't take itself as seriously. Although, Kamisama is more romance then Inuyasha. If you like a bit of romance, give it a try. I liked Kamisama better then Inuyasha.

Both have the same girl to deity plot and the same scenario where the deity has to deal with other deities. The girl in one anime is a weakling, while the girl in the other anime can kick ass. The deity's job in one anime is to protect the girl, while the deity in the other anime wants to be famous because he isn't that popular.

A Girl That Has Lost Everything (Family And Home) And Has No Friends From The Beginning. Later She Finds A New Home With Special Beings. And I Guess Both Are Heart Warming Stories.

Both are pretty shoujo series about humans and youkai. 
reportRecommended by ZettaiRyouiki
Both have similar a feeling about them. Both are romantic, cute, and have characters are likable, unlike many shows like that. In both of them, you can find good humor and gentle romantic scenes.
