Synopsis

Based on a shounen manga by Takenashi Eri, serialised in Comic REX.

Our unlucky protagonist, Jin, uses the trunk of a sacred tree to carve a statue for a school project. When he takes it outside, to his surprise it begins absorbing the surrounding earth and transforms into, hold your breath on this one, a girl! So like all similar setups this guardian deity is pretty pissed that her tree was cut down and lives with Jin while she takes out her anger on squashing bugs....er, cleaning the "Impurities".

“So, Gods use bathrooms as well.” — Jin Mikuriya

First off, I would like to say that Kannagi were the first anime series that actually pulled me into this wonderful world of wonders, the anime world. In all honesty, I do not regret Kannagi being the one. In fact, I’m actually really glad they were. Suggesting right away, if your friend would start to be interested in anime, suggesting Kannagi to be the first watch would be nice, in my humble opinion. That is if your friend likes light-watch, comedy with a spice of romance. If he/she prefers something totally badass instead, Hellsing Ultimate or Code read more

At first glance Kannagi might appear to be just yet another school harem romance comedy and for the most part that’s about all it is. However once you start it becomes apparent that there is a little more to it to separate it from a genre that is overcrowded by bland and average titles.

The premise is pretty typical of any other show of this type, only the names and the origins ever seem to change. Though I did find it to be a bit unique with this one. Our lead Jin Mikuriya has just completed a wooden sculpture of a tree read more

Recommendations

Both main female leads are domineering and somewhat naive gods, and both animes are slice of life.
Both are about a male finding a goddess, only they take place in completely different eras.
