- 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.
Both Inu x Boku SS and Kamisama Hajimemashita have several things in common. First, there's a normal high school girl who meets a not so normal main main protagonist. From there, she becomes the head of household. Furthermore, the main protagonist in both series serves her and they both have similar physical traits.
Both series contain a lot of comedy, drama, and hinted romance that is slow paced.
A schoolgirl moves in the same house as a white haired fox-guy who ends up serving/protecting her. They both have supernatural powers and make yokai friends. Fox-guy is really mysterious and has dark secrets. And then there's love.
There are so much similar elements in these series. Both have a main who is a white haired fox boy. They both have this 'gods and yokai in modern world but in a world of their own' setting. Both are funny and really enjoyable. If you enjoyed one, there is no way you wouldn't enjoy the other one too.
* Both feature a fox guy
* The guy's duty is to serve and protect the girl
* The guy and the girl live in the same place
* In Inu x Boku the guy falls in love first, in Kamisama the opposite
* Kamisama has more Gods, demons, rituals..etc
Both animes deal with a girl, due to certain circumstances, meeting a fox spirit and being in charge of him. The comedy and romance in both these series are similar, and the development between the characters. ;) And you can't forget the similar design of the 2 fox spirits/youkai. If you enjoyed one, you'll probably like the other ^^
Both feature a very light humor that will keep you cracking up pretty much the whole time. Also, both male leads are fox-spirits that serve your young female lead, superficial perhaps but it had to be mentioned. Both also have the pretty, helpful male leads with the dark past who fall for their mistresses into a relationship that's not socially acceptable for various reasons. Honestly their cut from the same cloth, they have the same flavor and I think fancs of the one will like the other.
*Are about a girl who is a bit social awkward
*Both have problems with family
*The girls have contact with the world of Youkai
*And have a master-servant relation with the main male characters
*The main male characters are both kitsune
Inu x Boku ss and Kamisama Hajimemashita are similar because main characters are surrounded of spiritual beauty mystic creatures, correspondent of japanese asian folk. Also that Japanese style characterizes both series, both have the same feeling althoug Kamisama Hajimemashita have more comedy. Also we see a romance between the two main characters very sweet and tender. And the male protagonist also have cute ears. Very recommended.
Two main characters from both series are very similar. Ririchiyo and Nanami are mostly shy girls, but it happened that they meet a man bond to serve them.
Also Tomoe and Miketsukami have similar appearance. They have different characters, but both have that thing that made them cute. I'm sure that if you didn't have enough of one series, you should check the other one.
They both include main/side characters who have supernatural powers e.g. Tomoe and Miketsukami both are fox-like spirits. Also, they both fight to protect somebody e.g. Nanami and Ririchiyo.
Both of the animes include some fight scenes.
Both animes show the two main characters ending up in love.
The anime (male) mains are pretty similar
-Both are fox spirits
-Both serve the female lead and protect her no matter what
Overall I'd say say the give of the same vibe and both involve a romantic relationship between Male and Female Lead.
- Both of these anime's have the main characters as moderately abandoned girls.
- The main's are strong willed and prefer to do things their way.
- The main guy characters are also similar in both of these animes.
- They both serve the main girl character, due to their own circumstances and they are both demons.
- They are both centered around youkai.
- They are also both romance/comedies in which both the main male protaganists are a fox demon.
- Both have girls who are protected by their 'servants'. In Inu x Boku SS, it's Ririchiyo's secret service agent who protects her, and in Kamisama Hajimemashita, It's Nanami's divine servant, Tomoe.
- Both are endearing romance stories with just the right sprinkle of action, supernatural, and comedy.
- Both animes are hysterical, and if you liked one you'll like the other.
- The biggest similarity though is the love story. There's a satisfying (also sweet) ending to both the series and the romance. read more
First off, these two series consist of "demon characters" and both have a similar character with Tomoe and Miketsukami (both are demon foxes).
The story Kamisama Hajimemashita follows a story of Nanami becoming a god and moving into a new home after her father walked away from her old home (causing her to become homeless). Eventually she meets up with the Land God, and he offers his home to her after leaving it for 20+ years. Nanami meets Tomoe, the servant and causes him to leave the shire. They eventually become friends and develop a bond between them, even though Tomoe doesn't like the human god (Nanami).
In Inu x Boku, we are introduced to a rich young girl known as ririchiyo. She was moved into a special condo after leaving her own home. When she first enters, she is bothered the the demon fox, Miketsukami, who says he is her servant. They eventually accept one another into the series, even though Ririchiyo does not with to be bothered by Miketsukami. read more
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.
Girl accidentally becomes a supernatural entity with guidance (and problems) from a sarcastic, argumentative (but sweet) godly-powered pretty teen, and tagged after by a sweet but slightly broken boy.
Lots of purification rituals to ward off blights and miasmas, lots of toxic spirits stinking up the place; a lot of shared territory with KH.
Silliness + humour + action + hints of romance, and with a surprise darker twist beneath the fluffy surface in season 2 of both shows.
Both are about a girl who means a supernatural deity. Kamisama Hajimemashita reverses the roles, so that the girl is the god and the boy is like a "shinki." It's a bit more comedic, though, and more shoujo-y.
Both shows feature a normal girl entering the world of minor deities (in Noragami, the girl becomes a half-phantom and befriends a little-known deity; in Kamisama Hajimemashita, the girl becomes a little-known deity herself).
Both shows feature a romantic thread and have a moderate (IMO the correct) amount of comedy.
If you liked Noragami, then you should check out Kamisama Hajimashita, they both have some sort of Spiritual/Godlike/Demons theme, the main character of Kamisama, Nanami, deals with the daily struggles of being a Godlike figure with the help of Tomoe her familiar and Noragami relates to a regular teenage girl, Hiyori, who becomes a partial Spirit and deals with Yato a God, they both contain a lots of laughter and some romance
The main similarity is that they both involve Shrine gods but Kamisama is more into the romantic comedy type while Noragami is more into action and comedy (though I really hope the romance in the story would progress, that's why I'm planning to see the manga). The characters of both anime have dark pasts (that I shouldn't mention cause it's for you to find out. Don't know what to add anymore so.... Thanks for the time and I hope this helps to whoever is reading it. :)
Both the main characters are deities or "gods".
Both male protagonist have a more savage past.
Both main characters try to become better gods, although in noragami yato is a little more serious about being a huge god.
Both are romances, although the romance development is stronger in kamisama hajimemashita.
Both are comedies.
And they're both a good watch.
1) Both Noragami and Kamisama Kiss main male characters have a very dark past.
2) Both male characters have supernatural powers and abilities.
3) Both about Gods and has shrines and spirits.
But the stories have different pathways. how?
1) Noragami has less romance and more action, thoughts and drama going on.
2) Noragami's main character, which is the God, doesn't have a shrine or a familiar.
3) Kamisama Kiss is more of a comedy-romance show felled with feelings.
4) Each episode in Kamisama Kiss has a new story that may not relate a lot to the previous episode.  read more
Each show follows an endearing deity (Yato in Noragami and Nanami in Kamisama Hajimemashita) who tries to perform their godly duties to the best of their abilities, but ultimately they end up falling short, which usually results in hilarious situations for viewers. However, each show still tackles more serious personal issues such as feelings of abandonment, feeling unloved, and a desire to prove oneself. Yato and Tomoe (Nanami's familiar) also have certain aspects in common, in that each character has a mysterious past. If you want a feel-good fantasy anime, look no further than Noragami and Kamisama Hajimemashita.
One can never go wrong with supernaturals, gods, and deities as part of an epic plot. Kamisama Hajimemashita is lighter and romance-centered than Noragami. But don't be deceived, Noragami has a fast-paced, interesting story line that will leave you gasping for air. That, or the fact that person who voiced Noragami's MC and Levi of Shingeki no Kyojin is the same.
"An ordinary girl gets in touch with the world of Kami&Ayakashi (or God&Spirits) by accident" makes a start for both stories.
Both are mixture of Shounen Manga and Shoujo Manga. Although Kamisama is totally a romantic story adapted from Shoujo Manga, it also has complicated plots about the complex relationship between Kami and Ayakashi (mostly in Season 2). Noragami is the opposite (adaption of Shounen Manga but also contains romance).
What's more, we can know about Japanese culture while watching Noragami and Kamisama as both stories are based on Japanese traditional myths.
fruit basket is about a girl who moves in house with guys that change into zodiac animals but its quite similar to this in humor and romance and also how both leading guys have a need to watch over them and protect them from harm and both girls are cute but a lil naive to the things happening around them.
Who else agree's this gives off a fruits basket remake with tohru ending up with yuki instead? Fruba centres a girl who was "offered a home" by SEVERAL attractive boys with a dark secret of being zodiac animals. And like Nanami, she becomes involved, responsible, in a way she doesn't understand the dangers she's in.
Also about a homeless girl encountering some mythical beings. The atmosphere is very similar - sweet, bubbly and warm. The difference is, Nanami is more likable than Tohru in the sense that she isn't as 'stupid'.
both involve a young innocent girl loosing her home with nowhere else to go. The girls Tohru Honda and Nanami Momozono even look and act similar, but with nanami being a bit more out spoken. Similar characters like kyo and Tomoe care deeply for the main girl, bit have odd abrasive ways of showing it. All the boys in both shows have animials that correspond with them in a fantasy type of way. for Fruits basket it is with the zodiac and for Kamisama it is they are land gods. They have very similar romance stories focusing on one girl surrounded by interesting hot men. If you like one then you are likely to like the other! xoxo read more
Both of these series are reverse harem (male harem). The girl—Nanami in Kamisama H. and Tohru in Fruits Basket—has lost everything—family and home. They both have a chance to live with guys. Tohru is staying at Sohma's house with three guys. Nanami meets man who offers her a place to stay and she ends up living at the shrine with a guy. Both of them fall in love with cold-type guy who open their hearts to them.
Both anime are really cute and beautiful. There is no ecchi or soap opera.
Both series include a girl that has lost everything - home and family. She gets offered to live in a place but turns out the place is owned by an animal-related person. In Kamisama Hajimemashita, it involves a dog-like demon, a snake demon and various other animals. In Fruits Basket, it involves the 12 animals of the zodiac. Both very funny <3
I thought both these series were really funny with cute and likable characters! The romance in both series is really cute in my opinion and they both have fantasy elements which give a little twist to the typical shoujo :)
There's a sweet and kind girl who has lost almost everything and is suddenly taken in by handsome, supernatural beings who want to give her a home. Through these beings the main character meets an assortment of friendly faces that usually end up vying for her attention, which leads to all sorts of trouble.
The Anime's characters are quite similar in their personalities and thoughts. The fact is that there is also a fantasy component making the anime's interesting. The differences between them is basically the characters actions or changes in a situation.
I'm not sure if it's because these anime share the same director, but they just *feel* so similar. Even Tohru and Nanami kinda look alike...
Ok, what do these anime actually have in common? Both are fantasy romance shoujo centered around a high school girl who goes to live with supernatural beings of the opposite sex after she loses her family. In addition, both have aspects of culture incorporated nicely (Furuba being the Chinese Zodiac and Kamisama being Japanese gods and shrines). Fruits Basket is more dramatic and has some darker themes. Kamisama Kiss is more episodic and has a lot more emphasis placed on the comedy, but it can be heavy when it wants to be. Thankfully, the core relationships in both anime actually grow and develop a lot more than most romance anime.  read more
They both are about a humble nice girl who was forced out of her home and come to meet god like people who bring her into there home. Throughout each anime both girls help many people especially her love interest who is lost in the world and is hiding secrets of the past.
- In both series, the main characters are high school female students who lose their home and family; that leads them to end up living in a pretty unusual situation.
- - The female protagonists in both show that become homeless are sheltered by super-natural beings.
- Same director on both, and both have the same style of comedy mixed with heartwarming moments.
- And the Artwork is similar in both, especially when it comes to the way the male characters are drawn.
- The protagonists are very soft and kind girls with no place to go and they both end up being thrust into worlds with magic and supernatural occurrences.
- The position of the two in their own homes respectively might be different, but the relations occurring with the people around them follow a same pattern.
- They both involve one girl and multiple guys.
- They both have sweet main character girls who don't back down from challenges presented to them and have a fantasy element that is interesting enough to keep your attention. Also the characters are adorable!
- They both have romance involved too.
- Both anime are shoujo with a supernatural twist. read more
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.
Kamisama Hajimemashita is a little like a new-age Inuyasha. Both main female protagonists are regular high school students before they find themselves immersed in a world of youkai. In both cases, the main male lead is a youkai (dog in Inuyasha, fox in Kamisama Hajimemashita) who was once in love with the female lead's previous form/predecessor, as well as both female leads having a key plot object inside of them. Both female leads can travel back and forth through time as well as having to solve problems created by the youkai. Both also include a slow-moving romance between the male and female lead, based largely at first on the two characters trying to get along. read more
Both stories feature a normal school girl who somehow gets involved with demons. Both show a romance between this girl and the main male which is a demon (KH: a Kitsune-fox demon; Inuyasha: Hanyo- half demon).
Both male characters had a dark past and were in love with a human woman.
Inuyasha has more action, drama etc. while KH shows a lot of funny moments. The KH anime doesn't show to much character development because it's really short (13 ep) but is still very enjoyable and easy to watch. It's more suited for girls of course, being a shoujo but if you are a guy who likes funny demon stories, you should give it a try!
And if you watched KH and like the demon themed love stories, well, than you should watch Inuyasha! The story is really good, quite long, but that is the best thing about it. It has a lot more fighting scenes, dramatic and romantic moments than KH. read more
Even though Inuyasha is a shoonen anime and Kamisama Hajimemashita a shoojo anime there are a few things that they have in common, like:
• both heroines have magical powers.
• both heroines are in love with the male leads, who both so happens to be yookais (well in Inuyashas case half yookai) and have white hair.
• the male leads also always comes to the female protagonists rescue when they're in trouble, even though Nanami can handle some of her problems by herself!
• there seems to be the shadow of a past lover in the both animes, though Tomoe didn't remember his st first ...
• both male leads wanted to become humnas so they could be with their past lovers, which didn't end so well ...
• both female leads had a jewel inside them; Kagome, Shikon no tama and Nanami, Dragon King's eye.
There might be even more facts that makes Kamisama Hajimemashita and Inuyasha similiar, but these are all I can come up with now! :) read more
Both anime contain a theme of spiritual powers and both contain a plot based around an event that takes place at the start of the series. Also, both anime contain a bit of romance between a seemingly normal human girl and an unusual male lead.
Watching it is like watching inuyasha and maid sama! combined.
The main characters are very similar, Tomoe is a powerful demon who is bound - reluctantly - to serve and protect Nanami, a high school girl. The romance is funny, cute and heartbreaking at the same time, the storyline and the animation is superb.
My friend criticized me for comparing them, but when I first watched Kamisama it distinctly reminded me of Inuyasha.
A girl finds a hot demon(looks-wise) with a shady past and lands a new job by accident. She then somehow binds him to herself, and eventually falls for him despite his apparent rudeness(after all he's a jerk with a heart of gold). The demon also eventually comes to accept the girl, all the while protecting her through the...uh.. episodes.
The two shows also follow a monster-of-the-week format, with the girls becoming more and more adept in their new jobs(helping and killing respectively). The only difference is that Inuyasha is of the action/adventure genre and has a overarching plot line(big baddie) whereas Kamisama has a more slice of life feel to it with no endgame.
Oh! And both can also be considered to be a bit reverse harem-ish. read more
So you decided to watch Inuyasha(good for you)!You loved it(seems legit)...but now it's over...and I know that you feel sad!Well...dont...
Kamisama Hajimemashita will surely fill a big gap in your heart!
There are demons, there is romance, there is action, there is kawainess, but most of all there is that special atmosphere you loved about Inuyasha!It's all there, plus the humour!!!So much of it!Its witty...pure humour!
- Both main characters are human/animal like "Spirits"
- Both main characters have this carefree attitude
- Both stories relate to some human girl falling in love with this spirits
- Very comedic like
- Both want to protect what they love or care for.
An ordinary girl is thrust into a new, supernatural world and has exciting adventures, along with a white-haired, animal-eared companion to bicker (and eventually fall in love) with. Nanami's Sacred Word Binding over Tomoe is a lot like the beads of subjugation, only more specific.
Both have a high school girl with some sort of demon (with white hair and adorable ears) involved in their lives. They give off the same feeling (if you know what I mean). If you have a bit more romantic taste then I really recommend Kamisama Hajimemashita. If you want a bit more action then I recommend InuYasha. They both have an interesting plot and are very funny.
Tomoe's appearance is quite similar to Usui's. But, the plot is based on spiritual powers, unlike in 'Kaichou wa Maid-sama' the plot if based on school-life. Either way, both of them are quite similar, with all the bubbly aura, and nice atmosphere at times.
Nanami as a lost girl; she has no one to support her, just like Misaki has no one to support her. The appearance and personalities of both the characters are quite similar indeed. I can just say that if you have watched 'Kaichou wa Maid-sama' then you should also watch 'Kamisama Kiss'.
I have searched for a long time for a romantic anime as good as maid sama, but was unsuccesful till I found Kamisama Hajimemashita.
Nanami loses her home and forced to live in a shinto shrine with Tomoe, a powerful demon who now has to protect her, and he is not at all happy about it. In addition, Nanami also meets Mizuki and Kurama who both fall for her.
Both are about a poor, but kind girl facing great responsibilities, always saved by the cool and perfect guy (these are shoujo anime) when she is in trouble (very often). The two main characters acts cold towards each other but manage to create a strong bond between them.
Both shows contains a good dose of humour and never fail to entertain thanks to their rich scenario.
- Nanami and Misaki are both strong independent females that are experiencing hardships in life due to debts left behind by their fathers.
- Tomoe and Usui both have a charming/cool appearance. Although they're popular amongst females, they show no interest in them whatsoever. They're both inhumanly amazing at everything they do.
- Both are shoujos and very comedic. They throw in funny chibi drawings here and there & random little jokes/statements that will make you laugh.
- The characters are very likable. Usually I find most Shoujo characters annoying, but I took a liking to the protagonists in both animes.
Well yes there is no supernatural stuff in Maid-sama, but in Kami-sama there is. But still. I think Maid-sama is pretty unique (and ended - just like Kami-sama - way to early, when all the good stuff from the mange was about to happen)... I can only recommend Kami-sama if you liked Maidsama.
Why? Because of the relationship between our "future" couple. Misaki & Nanami are both strong and straight forward, the boys are always teasing her but also ALWAYS protecting her.
There is just a little god-demon stuff going on in Kami-sama ;)
Both series follow the tsundere-falls-in-love plot with great characters and funny and unique guys. You really start to root for the couple and it's fun following their ups and downs. They are both enjoyable and great series.
both involve youkai/human characters and the relationship between the two. except in otome youkai zakuro the guy is the human and the main heroine is the youkai. both have shoujo themes with a bit of romance/sweet moments
Both animes are about yokai and humans living together and in kamisama they are granting wishs and in Otome they are helping people with problems that involve spirits. They are fairly similar and if you liked Kamisama Hajimemashita or Otome Youkai Zakuro then you will like the other.
They both include a romance between human (in KH, the human is female) and a fox demon (male in KH). In OYZ, the female lead struggles to come to terms with her feelings whereas in KH, the male lead struggles to come to terms with his feelings all while questioning and challenging the taboo of a relationship between demon and human. I would say that they have the same pace as they have the same number of episodes. I would also suggest that you read the manga because it goes into more details (however it is ongoing).
Both have very similar artwork. They are both about yokai and humans coexisting, as well as spirits and shrines. Kamisama is funnier and more lighthearted, but Otome Youkai Zakuro has a similar atmosphere. They are both entertaining and have some romance, but Otome Youkai Zakuro has more violence and action. It is extremely plot-driven, whereas Kamisama is more character driven. Both are great animes with great plots, but Kamisama is much more shoujo.
-Both are about humans and youkai
-The twins in Otome Youkai Zakuro are quite a lot like mizuki
-Zakuro is a lot like Tomoe
-The art is similar and both are beautiful
-Both light hearted anime with romance and comedy
- Bot are romance, comedy, supernatural anime.
- Both have a cute and cheerful main protagonist.
- Both focus a bit on high-school life though Inari Konkon is more slice-of-life-y.
- Both involve the concept of Gods, shrines and familiars.
A treat especially for those who love shoujo-ish anime.
In both, normal girls somehow 'received' god power from a god.
Though the plot in the 2 series go into different paths, become a god or remain as a human.
Nanami is 'bind' by her role as a land god but Inari is going into the direction so that she can control and live with the power as a human without becoming god.
Both contain their troubles with love and interaction with other gods.
Taking place in modern times, it takes on the romance genre and mixes it with fantasy elements involving a deity that comes in contact with a young girl. From there on, the characters' lives change forever as they get involved with supernatural beings they've never imagined before.
There is a certain degree of drama present in both series but also at the same time, scenarios of comedy. The female characters are compassionate toward others and are always ready to give a helping hand to those in need.
Both start out with a supernatural being meeting normal girl and giving her powers, although this is presented in a different way in both, with one departing after making arrangements for the heroine to have a place to stay, and the other remaining a source of comfort and guidance for the heroine.
Both share themes of romance and fox-related (Inari) beings. Struggles faced with love are important parts of the story in both.
-Both revolve around shrines and deities/gods
-The main female characters are somewhat average
-Are focused on romance
-Both are also comedies and include a certain amount of school life
-Include fox-related supernatural beings
-Both main female characters are given special powers, but of different sorts.
-Both involves Shrine Gods
-Has romance and comedy
-Gives the light and innocent feeling of love
Those are the main similarities but there are still some aspects where they are alike but it's hard to point everything out without spoiling.
I don't know why people think hiiro no kakera is a reverse harem, yes, there are many boys, but their feelings are not like this. Both involve a powerless heroine surrounded by guardians/familiars. The heroine always causes trouble and blames herself. In both the main hero thinks that the heroine is clumsy and useless at the beginning. Both involve shrines, supernatural creatures, mages, even though they go to school.
both are interesting, and funny.
*Both are about a girl that's, like, living in a shrine.
*One is a goddess and the other is like a divine princess.
*Both have harems.
*Both have 2 seasons.
*Both are like are about fantasy/supernatural and romance.
*Both main leads are high school girls.
*Both have like one boy who is like the male protagonist.
I have been searching for a similar anime to Kamisama Hajimemashita because I really LOVED IT ! Then I found Hiiro no kakera
If you liked Kamisama Hajimemashita, you'll absolutely love this one too
Both animes have a deity - Familiar / Gardian relashionship
Both are "Oni" related and Supernatural things
And both have incredible Romance in it *-*
PS : The two main male characters ( Tomoe/ Takuma ) are LOVE .
They both have slow romances and are somewhat reverse harems. They were also both very funny. Although Ouran and Kamisama were about different things, they both focused on character and relationship building and growth. They are both fun and light animes, both really great mangas too, with satisfying endings. I liked Nanami (Kamisama) and Haruhi (Ouran) because neither of them were excessively girly. Though they are different, they were both very strong female leads.
The main character in Kamisama is also a poor and has many guys after her. Both romance comedies. If you're anything like me and have always loved Fruits Basket and Ouran High Host Club and have spent time looking for something that invokes similar feelings, this is the one!
Kamisama Kiss and Ouran High School Host Club are both shoujo animes. The main character in both animes have a lot it common. For example, at first they seem shy, and unsure of themselves, but they turn out to have strong personalities. Both Haruhi (Ouran High School Host Club) and Nanami (Kamisama Kiss) are surrounded by guys who care for them.
In general, the way both series evolve is similar, and they both have an identical comedic tone.
I loved both these anime series very much, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do !
The art quite similar (i prefer kamisama's but natsume yuujinchou also has very nice art) and they both feature humans who have become entangled with the demon/spirit world. natsume yuujinchou is about a guy that has this magical book and has the ability to see spirits. The general feel of the animes are similar as well. They're both favorites of mine, so I definitely recommend it.
Natsume Yuujinchou and Kamisama Hajimemashita are similar because two protagonists are surrounded of mystic spirits. Also two animes have the feeling of the Japanese folk Culture. Although Natsume Yuujinchou don't have romance. Both series are calm and nice. Very recommended.
A schoolgirl finds out that she has became a goddess. Now she has to deal not only with her school troubles but also with supernatural things. But she'll meet many friends who will help her to manage with her new job.
-Both have males who dominate/control the main female
-Both have a nice, cheerful, happy-go-lucky school girl as the main female
-Both have a bad boy falls for good girl romance story
-The guy is cold and teasing to the girl despite his love for her.
-Only Tomoe isn't a sadist and has more personality.
Tbh, these two series have a few similarities worth mentioning. While lacking supernatural elements from Itazura na Kiss, both series features a normal girl who one day meets a man who is cold, popular at school, and has a very strong will.
Both series takes place at a school life setting where daily events takes place also involving other characters.
Both series main male protagonist has a cold demeanor but deep down cares for the main female protagonist.
Both series also features comedy, drama, romance, and some emotional moments.
Nanami, like Kotoko attends high school. She is also loses her home (because of her father's gaming debts), she starts to live with Tomoe, a powerful shrine familiar, who is not at all happy about having to protect her. The similarities end here. Although Nanami needs protection, she is not submissive like Kotoko and she learns to stand up for herself, gradually becaming an equal partner to Tomoe.
The romance is funny,cute and heratbreaking at the same time, the storyline is very good.
There is also competition for her attention: along Tomoe we have Kurama, Mizuki and other hot bishounen boys with a crush on Nanami. read more
Though you can see very little similarities among the animes you can fetch little sparks of recognition in them.
For example, one of the main characters are foxes. To the female main characters adds love-sick somewhat annoying stalker-ish persona.
Now the big difference or one of the many are: first, one is a teenager the other a kid. Second, one is a daity the other just got herself a new family. And the rest of them just adds up to the ones just named.
With a supernatural environment, our both white-haired main guys are fox spirits taking care of our main girl which in Kamisama Hajimemashita is a highschool girl and also a deity, and in Gugure! Kokkuri-san is a elementary school little girl who thinks she's a doll. While in Gugure! there's no romance, at least not between the main characters, in Kamisama there is. With a few differences, at least both have the same premise, the hot guys protecting the main girl, a lot of comedy, funny side characters and a slightly relaxing story to watch.
Both have fox spirits (and both are kind of about spirits), and the fox spirits look/act alike. Also the fox spirits take care of the human in both animes. (and ofcourse both animes have good sense of humour)
They're both alike with the main characters, a yokai and a human. A romance and a sci-fi genres.
In Kamisama Hajimemashita, a yokai became human's familiar. As time goes by, they both felll in love with each other beside the fact that a human and a yokai pair is a taboo.
The movie Hotarubi no Mori e is about the human boy who became a yokai/spirit and a human girl who was once lost in a mountain of gods. This is only 44minute anime film. The story revolves around how the yokai fell in love with the girl knowing that they couldn't be with each other and the fact that when the yokai touches a human, he disappears.
Kamisama Hajimemashita is still airing (but it's better to read the manga). read more
In both Hotarubi no Mori e and Kamisama Hajimemashita the female protagonist meets a yokai and ends up falling in love with him. Boht are very enjoyable, light hearted romancey shoujos with a supernatural aspect. Although one is a movie and the other is a series, the two reminded me of eachother, and if you like one I think you will like the other.
- goddess-guardian relationship
- at first the male servant is unwilling but then acknowledge their duty
- both servant are rude to the heroine! but actually they have kind heart ^^
- shoujo genre!! from goddess-guardian to love relationship (>▿<ʃƪ) ♥
- Nanami personality is more fun, Izumiko is too...damsel in distress
Both Tomoe and Miyuki are protectors of the main girls. Tomoe is a fox demon and at first sees a romantic relationship with Nanami (who is a god in human flesh) as "inappropriate", kinda like how one sees an employer and an employee going out. Miyuki, however, is not confident in himself and his abilities. Both Tomoe and Miyuki carry chips on their shoulders that the MC girls find out.
The difference is that while Nanami is a Goddess of the Land, Izumiko is a "vessel" for a "kami" spirit. Izumiko is also more shy and quite while Nanami is more energized and out going.
They both involve the same idea, with the Japanese Shinto as the basis. Both the main characters first are repelled by their love interests, whom they have to serve, but as the series continues on, they come to like each other.
in both the girl falls in love with the boy and the boy falls in love with the girl. No matter what she does, the girl always has to be saved by the boy. they are both really cute and great romance-comedy's!
Kamisama focuses on a small group of people while Special A focuses on a larger number. They both have that one character who never gives up, and tries her hardest to accomplish every thing they do. They also have that little hint of Romance that ends up being the biggest subject. Both Anime also have similar humor.
If you like Special A, you're sure to like Kamisama Hajmemashita!
"Kuroshitsuji" and "Kamisama Hajimemashita" are two very different series, in fact, i found a few similarities. For example:
- We can see a master-servant thing in both series;
- Both of the anime have demons;
- Sebastian from 'Kuroshitsuji' and Tomoe have a similar character - they try to hide their actual feelings;
As I said before, these two anime are different - "Kuroshitsuji" is more horror, with no romance (or maybe little shonen-ai elements, i'd say, but only a few of them), "Kamisama Hajimemashita" is more comedy.
I watched "Kamisama Hajimemashita" after "Kuroshitsuji", and I'm a big fan of both of them.
Both of them are about a non-human ( Demon and Yokai) handsome, with a super power.
In both, the handsome guys are serving a younger human ( boy and girl )
The both of them has the same atmosphere, but in Kuroshitsuji has more dark, and in Kamisama Hajimemashita has more romance
Both anime are somewhat similar:
- Main Characters - Girls
- Surrounded/Protected by Guys - Reverse Harem
- Lives Change
- Both Nanami and Yona are around the age 16.
The main differences that I notice right away are:
- Yona is a Princess and Nanami is a Land God
- Akatsuki no Yona is more about Princess Yona reclaiming her Kingdom
- earnest, hardworking, caring, and cute female lead (they have the same facial expressions and attitude!!!)
- learns to become stronger
- female was forced to leave her home
- male lead who is their protector and is very strong
- somewhat of a harem, but not the main point
- in KH, it is about gods and such,b ut is set in modern day
- in AnY, it is actually set in the past
While Kamisama Kiss has much lighter tones than Akatsuki no Yona, the characters and messages are very similar, with the main characters being rather ditzy and non-chalant before entering a world of many responsabilities. However, while they are very similar, Akatsuki no Yona's romance is more of a sideplot as in Kamisama Kiss, the romance is a main plot.
Both about Yokais, and Yoka/human familiar relationships. Both have that awesome Japanese mythological undercurrent, and both involve main characters that go to school when not doing astral Yokai stuff :D
Nanami, like Shizuko attends high school.
She loses her home (because of her father's gaming debts), and forced to live in a shinto shrine which has a demon, Tomoe who is not at all happy being bound to protect her.
After Tomoe saves her life, she fells for him and admits her feelings but he refuses her, saying he'll never love a human girl. The romance is funny,cute and heratbreaking at the same time, the storyline is very good. There is also competition for her attention: along Tomoe we have Kurama, Mizuki and other hot bishounen boys with a crush on Nanami.
The God theme!
Reverse Harems with super cute/hot males that never fail to make you smile and have interesting personalities that won't bore you to death. Nanami is a much stronger female lead than Yui.
Both these anime show humans are not as weak as the Gods think and leave you with that heartwarming feeling after each episode that makes you want more!
Both has relations with Gods so they're supernatural. If you like watching Kamisama Hajimemashita / Kamisama Kiss because of the reverse harem, you'll definitely like Kamigami no Asobi. Both anime are also romance-comedy which means its they are both light-hearted and have humorous plotlines.
If u loved Kamisama Hajimemashita, u will LOVE Ao Haru Ride ; and vice versa--
1. Romance Shoujo anime
2. A lil' bit of comedy that are SO CUTE
3. Female Main character somewhat looks alike, Personality 99% match as well - Cute, Positive. Careless, Persistent and most importantly, LOVES Kou / Tomoe to the ends of the earth.
4. Male Main character both are SMEXY. Personality 90% match - Cool, Has a dark past, Always there to protect Futaba/ Nanami , Mischievous and always like to make fun of her. Always don't wanna admit that they actually likes the girl.
5. Simply too amazing that will make butterflies spawn in ur stomach XD read more
Similar according to romance topic: male main characters are pretty same, same cold attitude from the beginning that is warming more and more with the passing time thanks to the feelings that they share to object of their love. Everything is hard from the start in both cases which makes even more "yummie" :)
Maybe female character is little bit more phlegmatic than Nanami from KamiHaji but still it is not slowing the action speed.
tomoe and adam are total baddies. Kicking butts and taking names. nobunagun is more action pack and scifi with E holders while kamisama kiss is more a shoujo romance type. Both Tomoe and Adam have the same attitude with Nanami and Shio. Dont care really. i loved them both and want second seasons for both.
Kamisama Hajimemashita is a story about a god who abandon his title and gives it to Nanami, making her a god.
For Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi, the god abandoned the world. Which made Ai, wanting to save the world that the god have abandoned.
Both girls in the show are working hard to protect what they love and doing what they think they're supposed to do. Both plots are funny in a way but Kamisama Hajimemashita involves romance. Both anime is a must watch!
Homeless because of their parent’s debt both main (Ayasaki Hayate-HNG & Momozono Nanami-KH) hero/heroine was forced out of their house, with a small stroke of luck they were taken in by a weird new home. New mysteries and comedy life both find themselves a new place to fit in. Both great series to watch!
Both are about a main female character who is of some great importance and everyone tries to kidnap or hurt them in some way. Both include more than one main male character. Both are under the shoujo genre. Both are really good anime.
MC in Kamisama is a deity.
MC in Lollipop just has a magical item inside her.
Kamisama is more about supernatural powers
Lollipop is more about sorcery.
A supernatural romantic comedy where a the FMC, a sweet girl with daddy issues, suddenly becomes a supernatural being and is taken in by and taken care of by the MMC, her future love interest. While both comedies, Sankarea is a lot more serious while Kamisama Hajimemashita is mostly lighthearted with a small amount of drama.
Although the female lead in Kamisama Hajimemashita seems more ditsy and clumsy compared to the hard-working female lead in Saiunkoku Monogatari, both animes have a similar feeling where the female lead is surrounded by men who support and look out for her. The people around the female lead just want to see her grow and mature into a confident, strong woman.
Doesn´t make much sence at first, but hear me out. Comedy in kamisama hajimemashita and skip beat have the same vibe in it, i found it very similiar. Both female lead are strong, overcoming obstacles, and have real character development. Maybe, give it a try? :)
Both of these anime are funny and romantic...
Well, Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun is much more hilarious, and Kamisama Hajimemasjita is much more romantic, but I think someone is going to have the same fun watching both of these!!!
Similarities: school life, girl being protected by a boy who falls for her. Both tomoe and shin are violent and wild, but they are gentle and protective toward their loved ones.
Differences: no supernatural elements in gokusen. (Maybe except fuji)
Yokai and humans collide in these two urban fantasy anime. Both more on the slice of life side with bursts of humor and action, they also share similar elements, like Tengu and humans who become something more. Both great anime that could please a similar audience.
-Both main character has powers without them knowing really much
-Both main character similar characteristics
-Both male character are very violent stubborn, thinks the main character is weak and don't like them/don't accept them,
-Both male character ends up developing feelings and falling for main character
-Both reverse harem sort of
-Both revolves around magic
-Both male main character use to be super violent, destructive, nobody could tame them before until they met a special someone
-Both really good animes that will keep you laughing non-stop in every episode. so cute, so good, you will not regret watching it! Don't judge an anime by it's cover!! read more
Both are very sweet shoujo stories, kind of naive but also indisputably charming, with some supernatural elements. Dynamic of main pairs - Livi/Nike and Tomoe/Nanami - is somehow similar. They love to bicker but it is more than obvious that they care about each other very deeply - the only difference is that in "Soredemo Sekai wa Ustukushii" romance is more direct and open, while in "Kamisama Hajimemashita" main characters are in pre-romance stage of their relationship.
In the end both series give you the same warm and fuzy feeling in your chest and have similar "fairytale" atmosphere.
I strongly recommend it as it contains romance, harem but most of all high quality comedy. The anime is simply hilarious(not the typical stupid humour)Both main female characters are quite different even opposite...but in a way they are similar as well as they eventually evolve in character and become even more admirable
In both anime the main characters possess powers or blood other demons wish to devour. They both have a fox deity who protects them from these demons and at times other deities. Both of these anime delve in Shinto and Japanese tradition & folklore. Although these series both contain romantic comedy, they differ in that Wagaya no Oinari-sama is a Shounen genre whereas Kamisama Hajimemashita is Shoujo.
There is a distinct focus on the relationship between humans and demons/spirits, with art styles generally geared toward a female audience. Kamisama Hajimemashita has more of a shoujo romance feel to it, while Hakkenden has more of a 'bishounen deal with their problems' feel to it with a side order of shounen ai subtext (thankfully this is fairly lowkey enough for those not so interested in such things to gloss over).
The rules for the worlds these two anime exist in are very similar and they both focus on aspects of japanese mythology/ideology and are very detailed with japanese culture. Main characters (though in very different situations) both have demon familiars that were famous in the demon world and have tragedies in their pasts that drive how they behave. Both anime have strong themes that demons and humans can never be together that the main characters are determined to over come. They also share the theme of accepting people for who they are and no who they were or based on how society views them. If you watch both anime you'll find yourself hearing similar things repeated and I'm sure if the main character of tactics had been female instead of male the two would have had similar romance stories as well. (Actually if you want to read between the lines they kind of do anyway.) read more
Both have supernatural fox/wolf creatures in it and have an element of romance between the two main characters.
Both Holo and Tomoe (the fox/wolf creatures) refer to the other character as a child and explain that they are from different worlds. Holo and Tomoe are also kind of arrogant and sometimes tend to be a little mean to the other character-their love-interest.
While Kamisama Hajimemashita takes place in modern-day Japan, Spice and Wolf takes place in an older setting. Also, Kamisama Hajimemashita is comedy, while Spice and Wolf is more serious.
Nanami, like mei is a high school girl, with her own difficult circumstances. She is evicted from her house because of her father's gaming debts. Then she meets Mikage who let's her live in his shrine.
The romance is funny,cute and heratbreaking at the same time, the storyline is very good.
The difference is that Mey has one boyfriend, while in Kamisama Nanami is surronded by bishounen boys: Tomoe, Kurama, Mizuke and more...
Both are reverse harem-like around a little homeless goddess school-girl who needs protection:
Nanami=Karin (little goddess school girl)
Tomoe=Kazune (Romantic Interest #1/devoted-yet-prickly/classmate)
Kuruma=Ren (black haired singer/classmate)
Aside from having similar characters---no, that's about it.
Kamisama is of the shrine-girl/traditional japanese kami type, while kamichama is a magic-girl time paradox issue.
I originally watched poyopoyo before watching this and I loved nanami immediately: "her voice sounds so familiar and happy and it makes me feel happy" and it has been verified.
The same voice actors does the main characters for both shows (no not the cat in poyopoyo, but for the very very lovable owner of the cat. she's just the pet-owner type person).
A lot of people were sad about kamisama hajimemashita being only 13 episodes; there are 50 episodes of poyopoyo but they are a lot shorter, (but each episode packs so much action and script it feels like the episode was much longer than 2 minutes. the sustenance derived = full length episode).
Both of these shows walk you into a cliche ("ahh...forbidden love and demons...cute cats...borrring") before its honest goodness just busts out all your smiles.  read more
