Anime: Noragami
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.

Anime: InuYasha
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.

reportRecommended by Mizuzuu
Anime: Gingitsune

Both involves girl and deity relationship.

Both were set in a shire.

Both have the same supernatural genre.


The girl to deity relationship in one anime has a romance vibe, while the other was more of an elder to younger kind of thing.

The deity in one anime has a tsundere attitude, while the deity in the other anime is a bit lazy.

The girl in one anime is sweet, kind and shy, while in the other anime is also sweet, kind but stupid.

Anime: Akatsuki no Yona
Both anime are somewhat similar:
- Main Characters - Girls
- Surrounded/Protected by Guys - Reverse Harem
- Romance
- Comedy
- Action
- Adventure
- 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

Anime: Hotarubi no Mori e
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  read more

Anime: Gugure! Kokkuri-san
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.

Anime: Kamigami no Asobi
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!

Anime: Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun
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.

Anime: Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi
Both anime series involve gods.

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!

Anime: Nobunagun
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.

Both endings are eerily similar.

Anime: Mamotte! Lollipop
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.

One is older and less popular.

Anime: Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii
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.

Anime: Wagaya no Oinari-sama.
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.

Anime: Hakkenden: Touhou Hakken Ibun
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  read more

Anime: Ookami to Koushinryou
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.

The Differences:
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.

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.
