SynopsisThe story revolves around Kusanagi Yui, who is ordered by Zeus, a god and the headmaster of a school he created, to teach the meaning of love to young and handsome gods. The reason he has for doing this is to cancel the negative effects of the weakening bond between the world of the divine and the world of the humans.

Characters & Voice Actors
This anime was a beautiful anime that I eagerly awaited each week. The art was wonderful with stunning colors and beautiful designs, and the voice acting was very good. I loved the character development and the costumes for each character. This anime is very much a reverse harem, if you don't like those, then maybe you shouldn't watch this anime, but you might be astounded by the interesting storyline. I believe this anime is based off an otome type game, and while I haven't played the game, I quite like the anime. This anime has a kind and caring main character who try's her best to be helpful and make the best of the situation. The main character is surrounded by gods from different cultures who each bring a different persona to the mix. This anime was very fun and made me laugh. I ecspecially loved the little shorts at the end of each episode. read more
I am a big fan of well executed reverse harems, and I can certainly add this anime to the list of good ones. So here goes!
This anime had every element I would expect from a good reverse harem. It begins by introducing the situation (a bunch of gods and one human chick forced to attend a school where they must learn about the human heart before they are allowed to leave and go back to their own worlds) and then begins working on developing each character little by little. At first, the episodes are pretty much what you'd expect from a reverse harem: each seems to focus one one specific dude and a certain problem that the heroine assists them in solving, with a couple of episodes thrown in that feature the group as a whole overcoming a problem together. This is done very well- there's plenty of humor and drama thrown in there. Near the end of the show, a main plot begins to surface that builds up to the show's climax, but the earlier episodes give plenty of time for the relationships between characters to develop.
However, what really surprised me about was the lack of... romance. Yes, there is a little bit. But romance is certainly NOT the main idea of this show. I was expecting the more general reverse harem trend, where the heroine 'dates' or has strong romantic connections with one or more of the characters, but in this show, while there are certainly hints of romance and flirting, there is little focus on romantic love. The relationships that the heroine develops with the gods are very friendly but close- sort of like how a sister would love her brother. There is a very strong focus on friendship in this show. In short, Kamigami no Asobi tis more about a girl who helps a bunch of incredibly hot gods with their complicated bromances than with a girl who falls in love with a bunch of hot guys- which is refreshing, but at the same time, a bit disappointing. I was hoping that Yui would end up with a guy the whole time, but nothing really happens, which is why I didn't rate the show a 9.
The characters were all beautiful. The heroine was pretty (I'm not entirely sure why she needed purple hair if she was supposed to be a normal human, but what am I expecting, this is anime) and the guys were all attractive. The attractive characters were attractive, and they were designed in ways that perfectly matched their attitudes. The hair and eyes were all great.
The setting was also gorgeous and well done. Crisp architecture and nature, no complaints here.
I didn't really like the OP, but I guess it fit the show. I though the closing song was much catchier and upbeat, but I have questionable taste in music.
The soundtrack for this anime was pretty normal. I guess the fact that I didn't notice anything meant that it fit well, but I also didn't particularly like the sound, so I'm giving it a 6.
Recent reverse harems have been plagued by the same problem: a 'heroine' who is nothing but an empty passive shell. Fortunately, the leading lady in Kamigami no Asobi is anything but. She is kind and compassionate, has actual emotions, and is capable of making meaningful connections with all of the guys she's surrounded with. Given the near impossible task of getting a group of guys (god guys, no less) to understand the human heart, she actually cares for all of them and builds friendships with them.
The gods in the show certainly fulfill the 'hot guy' aspect that reverse harems all have, and while they are all very well written, a few of their personalities are a bit stale, and frankly, I've seem then before.
The 'perfect' guy who is incredibly friendly and kind to the heroine but has a past that he can't get over? Check.
The rebel who is a total jerk to the heroine at first but turns out to be misunderstood? Check.
The guy plagued by misery who wants to keep others away so he won't hurt them? Check.
The very analytical guy who doesn't understand emotion and treats everything as a mission? Check.
While these are a bit overused, I can't say I disliked any of the characters. They all fulfilled their purposes as intended. However, my favorite character in the entire show was actually sort of a side character- the gods' teacher, Thoth. I found his habits of cornering Yui and yelling at her, the insulting but hilarious nicknames he gave all of his students, and the generally vindictive, sarcastic attitude he has really funny. He was probably the most unique character and in the show, and he's the reason character didn't get a 7 instead of an 8.
It was a good show. I liked it a lot. The only thing I wanted that I didn't get was romance. But I did get a lot of bromance, so I guess that makes up for it!
Singing boys, reverse harem, Daisuke Ono (second season UtaPri). Lots of cheesy moments and lots of men driven to woo the One Strumpet.
Both are romantic fan service driven towards ladies (and curious males)
The male voice actors for both series sing in the beginning and endings (only Uta No Prince Sama is more geared towards the men and their individual songs where this one is more geared towards mythology in some way)
And both are Otome game series by Broccoli.
Both are reverse harem shows. They have a bunch of guys and one heroine. In Kamigami it is gods and in Uta no prince sama it is singers. Both have funny moments.
School setting, bright colours, fluffy romance, cute boys, similar comedy/silly antics, one girl changing the boys' lives, and lastly, same game company.
You can also relate the characters together as well because they share similar tropes. Ittoki/Apollon, Balder/Cecil, Tsukito/Masato, Takeru/Syo just as an example. =P
Reverse harems in the setting of a school that's not ordinary.
Well, both have the harem aspect of the show. The male characters of each harem really resemble the other. I just recently began Uta No Prince-sama and as soon as I saw each character I knew that each character resembled the other. Such as Jinguji Ren and Balder Hringhorni for instance. Or maybe even Ittoki Otoya and Apollon Agana Belea. Also, in Uta no Prince-sama there's some singing action going on there, now in Kamigami no Asobi, there's also singing from each character but only in the opening and the closing of each episode. Both plots are quite amazing and I seriously do recommend one or the other if you liked either of these amazing shows.
Both anime are reverse harem
Both female protagonists are dense in love, and have difficulties getting along with the male characters. Also finding out who they really love. Yet Yui seems to be more braver and smarter than most female characters in reverse harem.
Both anime are romance and filled with fan service for fangirls.
The male characters in both anime sang the endings
If you loved Brothers conflict, then you are also gotta love this ;D Just saying
-> They are both reverse harem
-> All the boys are beautiful
-> They all live together (to some extent)
But, in my opinion, Kamigami is a lot better since there is an actual plot to the show. Also, unlike Ema, the protagonist actually reacts to the advances she gets.
-both anime have handsome male characters
