- 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 deal mith a FOXY main character both are romance-related fantasy anime.As both are great so if you like one then you should definitely watch the other one.
Tbh, I think these two series are quite alike.
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.
Both series also has a strong male cast.
The Main Male Character in Both Series are servent of the female character and they are both fox spirit.....
Both series are from shoujo genre, they have a lot in common: romance between girl and her familiar/servant, youkai, magic, comedy, well created characters.
Both series have a kitsune as the leading male character. Tomoe is much more badass than Soushi though. Story-wise, KH has a more concrete plot line than SS as SS is more of an episodic show.
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.
Both are about demons and servants and the love that blossoms is very sweet.
- Both Ririchiyo and Nanami are masters who fall in love with their familiars, Soushi and Tomoe.
- Both Soushi and Tomoe are wolf demons, who make a contract to protect Ririchiyo and Nanami.
It's really similar because of the demon spirit and how their love developed as well. Though the characters are quite different you get the same kind of feel when your watching these two animes
Just 3 words: Neko. Romance. Kawaii.
Watch and love it!
There are so much similar elements in these series. 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
-same fox demon that protects the main female character
-similar art style
-cute shoujo love story
-the fox has a dark background
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
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.
A high school girl becomes a deity and ends up interacting with demons. The protagonists in both stories have similar traits and a similar appearance. It also has a similar drawing style.
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.
While not entirely alike, both series has a lighthearted atmosphere in which the main female protagonist becomes acquainted with characters with supernatural abilities.
Both series also features two popular guys at school.
Both series has some action, drama, lighthearted comedy, and also romance themes involving specifically the main female protagonist and her new life.
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
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.
they both are a romatic comedy where the boy wont admit his feelings. in both a girl has come to live with the boy because they lost their home.
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
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 series feature an at first, somewhat naive and helpless young school girl, who discovers powers she never knew she had.
She meets various Youkai and has adventures!
Inuyasha, is a Shounen with many action scenes and also some romcom, and Kami-Sama Hajimemashita is a romcom with some action scenes.
Both series heavily feature magical powers and 'Youkai'.
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.
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.
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! :)
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.
They both have :
a demon, who loves someone in their past.
a human girl, who gets involved in demon stuff.
a great love story.
two worlds: demon and human.
In Kamisama Kiss, you will find it's similarities to Inuyasha as astounding. Basically, Kamisama Kiss is Inuyasha's Shoujo counterpart.
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.
Both are pretty shoujo series about humans and youkai.
Both have Katsune as there main character and have similar artwork.
both excellent shoujos...gods,demons... the relationships between humans and demons & fantastic music!
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
the same thing .. shoujo about human + youkai .. supernatural beings
Foxes , spirits .. etc .. people team up to solve other people's problems ..
sweet light-hearted series ..
Both anime involve spirits and contain a bit of ancient Japanese culture. The main characters also have a romantic interest in each other.
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 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.
Both are decent romantic/comedy shoujos with likable characters
Both of the main characters are girls with similar personalities. The shows are both romantic comedies, and the love interests are guys who tend to annoy the main character.
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'.
The way that history involves you
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.
- 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.
The same genre where it involves deities, high school girls, romance a supernatural.
The same romantic atmosphere.
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.
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.
Both have the same girl-to-deity kind of relationship. One also has some panty shots, while the other doesn't.
The same plot where girl meets god and relationships form, except in the old anime the girl is a damsel in distress, while in the new anime the girl can put against an opponent.
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.
The same girl and deity kind of relationship, the same setting only one has a revese harem while the other has a bit of drama in it.
Both have the same deity to human concept, were both live in a temple and both have the same supernatural genre.
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
Comedy and reverse harem
One is comedy and revesre harem in a psudo macabre thing.
the other one is more on the supernatural thing.
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.
- Both Shizuku and Nanami have incompetent fathers. Shizuku's father keeps failing at his business, while Nanami's father ran out on her.
- Both Haru and Tomoe have a fear of being abandoned. Haru thinks Shizuku will leave him behind like his aunt, while Tomoe thinks Nanami will leave him behind like his old master Mikage.
They have similar elements of comedy, and are fun to watch.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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...
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)
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.
- 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 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!
Reverse harem, both main characters have guardians or familiars, the main guardian (Takuma) or familiar (Tomoe) don't seem to like the main character at first, ect., ect.
- Both have female masters, Louise and Nanami, who are protected by their male familiars, Saito and Tomoe.
- Both Tomoe and the Pope have the same seiyuu, Tachibana Shinnosuke. They are also kind but ruthless.
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.
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.
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.
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.)
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).
-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!!
Kamisama Hajimemashita is very similar to Skip beat!
Characters in both have the same personality, ideals and goals in life.
Animation in both is also similar.
Both have Chibi moments that are relevant to all the characters and the strong storyline that they tackle. Both of these anime are a must see for all fans of comedy, romance and shoujo genres.
