SynopsisKeima Katsuragi, known online as the legendary "God of Conquest," can conquer any girl's heart—in dating sim games, at least. In reality, he opts for the two-dimensional world of gaming over real life because he is an unhealthily obsessed otaku of galge games (a type of Japanese video game centered on interactions with attractive girls).
When he arrogantly accepts an anonymous offer to prove his supremacy at dating sim games, Keima is misled into aiding a naïve and impish demon from hell named Elucia "Elsie" de Lute Ima with her mission: retrieving runaway evil spirits who have escaped from hell and scattered themselves throughout the human world. Keima discovers that the only way to capture these spirits is to conquer what he hates the most: the unpredictable hearts of three-dimensional girls! Shackled to Elsie via a deadly collar, Keima now has his title of "God of Conquest" put to the ultimate test as he is forced to navigate through the hearts of a multitude of real-life girls.

I came into this show expecting the worst, another boring and dumb harem anime without any real substance to it. But, after watching I was pleasantly surprised, and would like to challenge the shows classification as a harem show as well. The show is presented much like a visual novel or dating sim where the main character can date a girl and then move on to the next once he's done. There is no interaction between the girls he dates, and he does not interact with them afterwards due to demonic magic and the like. I would classify this as a multi-arc romance show, that has been condensed into 12 episodes.
The story is pretty average, Keima is a master of dating sim games and because of his confidence he accepts a challenge from a demon. This challenge is to use romance to remove loose spirits from girls hearts and send them back to hell. With the help of a spunky cute demon and his dating sim skills Keima does just that. The story moves quickly, and each girls arc is short, 1 or 2 episodes per girl. This gives the story a rushed feeling and makes me think that the show would have been better as a 24 episode season that expanded on each story line more.
The art is good. The style is nothing new but the designs are good and the visuals do accentuate the style of the scene that they are in. The style adapts to the tone and can create hilarious or beautiful atmosphere.
Every character has a good voice actor and the music fits every scene well. The idol arc has really catchy songs that I caught myself humming along to and one in particular stuck in my head for the day after I watched the episode. The opening song is one of my top 5 as well. The music and sound overall is really good.
Each character is varied and has a personality trait of their own that they have to overcome in their respective story arc. The girls Keima romances have good personalities and through his interactions with him they change for the better, it shows great character development. Especially during the idol and librarian arcs, they are genuinely good stories and the romance is very good in them. I did feel genuinely sad during some parts of the last two romance arcs. I do have one problem with the characters. The leads are not very well developed, both Keima and Elsie are good characters but have little to no development and I feel that it detracts from the show overall.
I liked the anime, overall I wasn't bored and enjoyed the romance and wanted longer more fleshed out arcs because I liked the girls that Keima romanced.
I recommend this anime to anyone who wants something short that has a good blend of comedy and romance.

"The World God Only Knows"
Kaminomi was based on Tamaki Wakaki's manga series work and the anime title itself is very catchy because it shows the uniqueness of the other world of a dating-sim gamer, Katsuragi Keima. If you like romcom-harem with a twist of fantasy, this anime series is a-must watch!
It is a great anime, especially to those who are engaging on gaming hobby. We could sympathize to the main character's daily experience, for example his famous line "Reality is a shit game" explains the irregularities of the reality because it is unpredictable but despite of that, main character conquers all challenges!
"The World God Only Knows (神のみぞ知るセカイ Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai), often abbreviated as Kaminomi (神のみ) in Japanese and TWGOK in English, is a manga series written and illustrated by Tamiki Wakaki and published in the Weekly Shōnen Sunday magazine. It follows the life of Keima Katsuragi, an avid player of galges (dating simulation games), whose skills and website have given him internet fame as the "Capturing God". However, he has rejected reality in favor of the world in those games, and is known as "Otamegane" in his school. When Keima unwittingly signs a contract with Hell he is forced to assist Elucia de Lute Ima, a Demon, to capture evil spirits which have escaped from Hell, or else he has to face death. As the escaped spirits are hiding within 'gaps' within the hearts of girls caused by negative emotions, he must use his skills with gal games to replace those emotions with love" - Source from Kaminomi WikiA
The plot of the story was well-established, has a good flow of storyline because of the orthodox pattern, and has a good character development, but I rated it as 7/10 because 12 episodes are not enough to show the story enough (compared to the manga series) and has many side-stories that are not really relevant to the main flow of the story. Despite of that, the story itself is very interesting and gives you a heart-warming feeling and laughs!
I've become a fan of Tamiki Wakaki's manga because of his unique character design and it was accurately showed in this anime series. The graphics and effects are also good and well-blended to the story and has somewhat contributes to the techy-vibe of the anime show.
The OP song was very unique compared to other anime series but it really fits to the theme. The ED song has different singers on each episode (VAs of the heroines on the stories), which I was really amazed that most of their VAs could sing very well. I'm laughing hard at the Hiro Shimono's song because it is very off-key, which I could understand because he is not really a excellent singer but it really fits to the personality of the main character since Keima is not really good at music and arts (oops!). Despite of that, the BGMs and other sound effects really fit to the story's theme.
I really like the main character (Keima Katsuragi) because he is totally a genius gamer because he could apply the logic and knowledge of gaming aspects when he is dealing to the reality. I've become a fan of Hiro Shimono since he really fits to the main character's strong personality.
In addition to that, the other characters of the story were also well-established according to the storyline.
I really enjoyed, liked and watched Kaminomi many times. I'm glad that I've watch this anime series!
Maybe I'm too biased with my overall score since I enjoyed it a lot, but Kaminomi is one of the best romcom anime series because of its uniqueness, in a good way that the elements of the theme of the story was not overlapping to the main plot of the story.
I hope that this review is helpful and encourage everyone to watch Kaminomi! read more
Before I being my review, I want to say that I am not the most serious critic. I only state my opinions in my reviews, and I don't shove false facts down peoples throats saying the show is bad. With that out of the way, let me start the review.
It's been quite a while since I watched the TWGOK series, and I have only started reading the manga a few weeks ago. During that time, I've read 198 chapters, and also in the middle of that, I started watching Hunter x Hunter (2011). But, after a while, I decided to finally review the entire series, starting with the first season.
The story is great. It's not that simple, and it's not that complex. A seventeen-year old high school student who does nothing but play video games all day is visited by a demon from Hell, Elucia de Lute Ima, better known as, Elsie. Elsie comes to him saying that he must capture runaway spirits, which are spirits from Hell that hide in the gaps of peoples hearts. The people who they hide in are... odd girls. He must fill the gap in their hearts with love, and, yeah. That's pretty much the show. But, it's entertaining, nevertheless.
I'm not usually too worried about art style and animation in anime anymore, I just stopped caring. I just try and not watch things that were before 1990. But, in this anime, the animation and the art style is perfect, whoever done the animation should be congratulated. I forgot which studio it was, Manglobe, was it?
The soundtrack is great, opening is okay. Every opening in TWGOK, well, ALMOST every opening is English, but, one of the very few English songs I've heard that are actually good. So, if you know me, I absolutely despise English songs, I think they sound like garbage, and they taint the music industry. Sorry, just how I feel.
The characters are great, not one of them are hate-able at all. This season covers three arcs of the manga, which is the Ayumi Takahara arc, the Rich Girl arc (Mio Aoyama) and the Librarian arc (Shiori Shiomiya) and I say they did a good job of covering all of those characters. They were all done pretty perfectly.
This anime series is a great start to the TWGOK series, and so far, after reading 198 chapters I feel like it will become one of my favorite manga series, and I haven't read much manga so I don't know what I can say.
(Haven't read much manga = around 50). That's my logic, aight? Have a great time. read more
It's funny how trends, tastes, and even perceptions can change over time. Less than a decade ago being called a geek, nerd or otaku was considered an insult, and while those terms have maintained their derogatory status to a degree (especially in Japan), the steady march of technology has dictated the rise of the "Beta Male", and nowhere is this more apparent than in the entertainment industries.
In 2001 the PC and Dreamcast game Comic Party was adapted and released as an anime, and with it came the birth of a totally new genre - the otaku comedy. Since that time there have been numerous manga and anime that have utilised the theme in some manner, from the romanticised look at otaku life that is Genshiken, to the insane classical stylings of Nodame Cantabile's heroine, Noda Megumi. These days the number of titles that have some involvement with the genre is on the rise, and while some take a decidedly rose-tinted view of the subject, there are others (NHK ni Youkoso!, Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu (no, seriously), ChäoS;HEAd, etc), that allow glimpses into the darker side of otaku life.
There are also those that approach the subject of otaku in an imaginative, yet decidedly tongue-in-cheek manner.
Kami Nomi Zo Shiru Sekai (The World God Only Knows, or KamiNomi), tells the story of Katsuragi Keima, the "king" of bishoujo games (galge), and dating sims, who is better known throughout the internet as the "Capturing God". He is content to live his life in the virtual world because "reality is just a crappy game" where the girls are impossible to deal with. All of that changes when he answers a mysterious e-mail addressed to the God of Conquest (another one of his monikers), and subsequently meets the demon girl Elucia de Lut Ima (Elci).
The plot attempts to meld several different themes into one continuous narrative, and in order to do this it utilises a number of devices that can sometimes get in the way. Like Amagami SS, the storyline follows the "short arc for each girl" format, complete with the "reset" at the end. This is accompanied by some fairly typical "soul possession" concepts, basic yet still humourous slapstick, and a rather interesting take on dating sims in general.
Unfortunately it doesn't completely work.
The problem is that while KamiNomi is essentially a straight forward otaku comedy, the inclusion of so many disparate themes eventually causes a degree of conflict within the framework of the story. The major issue is the idea that one can use dating sim methodology to form a real world relationship, and while it is possible to learn the basics, this can never replace actual experience. In addition to this is the fact that the viewer is supposed to believe that a notorious game addict like Keima can suddenly turn on the charm when dealing with real girls, many of whom he initially can't stand to be around, and this in itself raises the question of suspicion on the part of the girls.
There is an attempt to rectify these issues, but this relies on the tried and tested method of memory manipulation rather than an explanation of how a social recluse is easily able to communicate with others. That said, the series utilises some well placed visual gags to divert the viewers attention away from any plot holes or conflicts, and the story is interesting and humourous enough to make it accessible to a much broader audience than one might initially expect.
When it comes to looks, KamiNomi is pretty much back to basics in virtually every department, with one area of notable exception (we'll get to that in a moment). That said, while the degree of genericism in the visuals is high, there's also something slightly more subtle at work as well. The character designs are taken directly from the manga by Wakaki Tamiki, and what's interesting about this is that while the mangaka made a conscious effort to allow the comedy to flourish, he also tried to show what each character is, rather than simply trying to define them as individuals.
Confused? I'll explain then.
The plot is partly derived from that of the common or garden dating sim or galge, and as regular players of these games will know, characters of a specific type will share certain visual features. Wakaki has attempted to incorporate some of these into the design of the girls that Keima goes after, and this in turn defines their personalities as they have been created to fit a specific mould. In addition to this, because the player is usually faceless in these games, Wakaki chose to parody a few of the better known "genius" characters from anime for his "God of Conquest", in particular Lelouch vi Brittania and Yagami Light.
So don't be fooled by the simplistic looks.
The area that really stands out is the effects, in particular the variety, timing and imagination that has gone into making them. While the rest of the anime may look colourful yet average, KamiNomi is surprising for the quality of a number of its visual set pieces, but it's the audio choreography that changes those scenes from simply being pretty into something worth watching.
In anime, as in life, timing is everything, and in this respect Manglobe have a very good pedigree. But then what else would one expect from the studio that brought us Michiko to Hatchin, Samurai Champloo and Ergo Proxy (unfortunately they're also responsible for the abysmal Sacred Blacksmith, but we won't go there). While this is very clearly a comedy series the studio has made the effort to deliver a quality show, and because there's little that can be done about the design of the visuals, a lot of effort has gone into making this anime sound great.
The opening sequence is indicative of this ethos at work, and features some clever imagery that is well timed to match the changes in the theme song (God Only Knows, performed by Elisa). The ending sequence is a bit more complicated as there are actually four tracks and sequences on offer. The main ED, Koi no Shirushi, is a fairly average J-Pop track, but for the majority of episodes the female leads take turns singing it (while the rest perform backing vocals). As for the remaining tracks, Tatta Ichi Do no Kisei by Sakurai Tomo (episode four), along with the visuals, is meant to be a play on the average ending sequences of dating sims and galge. On the other hand Happy Crescent by Toyama Nao is supposed to be a "live" idol performance, so it's a shame it's such a generic song.
To be honest, the best of the EDs, is the final one, Shuuseki Kairo no Yume Tabibito, which is sung in a completely amateurish and off key style by the lead man himself, Shimono Hiro (with support from the female seiyuu who apparently are collectively known as Oratorio The World God Only Knows), and is very much in keeping with the slightly delusional and slapstick comedy of the series.
Unfortunately there's one big flaw in KamiNomi, and that's the lack of character development. Normally this shouldn't really be an issue for what is effectively an otaku comedy/parody, but because of the inclusion of certain plot themes, aspects like characterisation and growth become more prominent.
Basically, the more complicated a story is, the better the characters have to be.
While there is some development due to the soul possession aspect of the story, it never really impacts on the overall narrative due to the "reset" at the end of each girl's arc. This has the effect of nullifying what has gone before, and even though Keima and Elci aren't subject to it as a rule, there is very little given over to their growth over the course of the series.
The real strength of the characters comes from the comedy side of the show, and in this respect the seiyuu are pretty good. Shimono Hiro (Keima), and Itou Kanae (Elci), are great as the proverbial "Odd Couple", and while there are some great skits from the other leading ladies, their timing and delivery, especially with each other, is sometimes a joy to behold.
Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai is a strangely mixed bag that works on certain levels, but ultimately it would have been better off trying to weave fewer themes into the plot. Individually the concepts behind the series are imaginative and somewhat inventive, but the complications caused by trying to blend several ideas together sometimes creates a quagmire in the storyline, and inserting a joke to brush over it is nothing more than papering over the cracks. That said, the series is enjoyable enough to warrant at least one watch, and viewers should also keep in mind that this twelve episode anime is nothing more than a prelude of things to come, especially as the manga has already gone beyond the 100 chapter mark.
While the incomplete nature of the story may put people off, the fact that a sequel is on the horizon may signify that all hope is not yet lost. Then again, they may simply "cop out" by ending the series before the real storyline begins.
We'll have to wait and see.
Meet Normal-kun. Normal-kun is, overall, not stunningly popular. However, due to certain ridiculous circumstances, the world will be in great peril unless he dates a bunch of girls and gets them to fall in love with him. Follow Normal-kun on his occasionally humorous quest to "gotta catch 'em all".
to conquer a girl.
the boy in that anime need a help of there friends to conquer a girl
the boy in that anime dont need a help to conquer a girl, he just use his skill from the dating sim he played
Both contain dating-sim premise as well as use it for comedic effect. Both series also deal with fantasy/sci-fi settings to poise a problem that needs to be solved by making girls fall for the main character.
No doubting that these two animes give the same vibe as 'Dating to save the world' is the main shared plot. Although Kami Nomi should contain more "intelligent" scoring, the comedy has never escaped any of these shows.
To put it simple, if you like Date A Live, it's high probable that you're going to like Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai.
Both anime involves dating games and making girls fall in love with the main character and those girls are spirits. They're both comedic as well.
The idea of a game like scenario where the main protagonist must win the hearts of female characters is a theme present in both series.
The main male protagonist isn't very popular with girls though but still is assigned to the task after a faithful day. He also has a "sister" around him that guides him through these tasks.
Both series consists of 'arcs' that focuses on a specific characters for the main character to unlock the hearts of. However, they each contain obstacles. Among other things, both series has a lot of comedy, drama, and takes place @ at a high school setting.
Conquering girls, with setting up flags. With trying to get to the end of the line by making them fall in love with you.
The male leads are coerced into making various girls fall in love with them, in order to "save humanity". The main males have to set flags with each heroine, and make her fall for him to the point that they kiss. The difference lies in that in Kami nomi the heroine would forget everything that happened after the kiss, while in Date A Live the girls remember everything.
Both harem anime's protagonists save the world by gaining the love of certain females
Saving the world by playing dating sims and making girls fall in love.
They are both forced to conquer the girls by making them fall in love. They need it to save the world.
'Save the world, date these girls!' is what these two animes are screaming. One is more based on action, while the other one is more based on romance. While Itsuka Shidou dates the girls to save the world and stop spacequakes, Keima dates the girls to stop himself from being beheaded by the collar on his neck. Both animes have a similar feel as well, though the anime version of Date A Live goes more in detail in terms of story than Kami nomi does.
These two are about a guy who isn't very popular with girls until one day it becomes his job to make girls fall in love with him! The fate of the world is in his hands depending on what he does. Both also have to do with him dealing with outer world things. The guy MC also has a female helping him out with his quests/missions.
They are similar by the fact that both animes have a main male protagonist who was suddenly involved with a girl who has forced them into trying to make girls fall in love with them.
While in The World God Only Knows, the male protagonist HAS to do it or else his head will be cut off. In TWGOK he has to capture girls to make loose souls get out of that persons body.
In Date A Live it has the same aspect but he has to make girls fall in love with them so he can lock the magic inside the spirit to stop space quakes from happening.
A guy is caught up in a supernatural situation where he has to take girls on dates. The protagonist of the World God only Knows however is self-capable of this task most of the time while the protagonist of Date A Live needs a lot of help in order to date about 1/5 of the girls of the other. Date A Live is also more ecchi and has action and mechs in addition to the dating sim style harem setup.
the main character ends up having to get various girls in love with him as well
In both cases, the stories' issue focuses on the conquest of various girls. Our male leads are both forced to make the girls they are trying to conquest to fall in love with them, and by that save the world from a disaster. Unserious as they are, they both tend to deliver comedy before any kind of potential drama.
-They date girls
-Make them fall in love with them
-Use techniques to make the girl infatuated
-Both are being helped by someone while on dates
-Both are forced to date girls from the start, but gets over it during the process.
It's pretty much the same with a little difference. I re-watched both of them and compared them. They have a resemblance with each other. If you like romance anime with a dose of comedy, then both of them I highly recommend.
Both anime are about a guy who's tasked with falling in love with girls so as to release their Spirit power (in Date A Live) or evil spirits (in The World God Only Knows). Both anime have an aspect of visual novel games to them and have quite the diverse variety of girls to fall in love with.
Dating is something important and kissing is the final stage of dating. If you enjoy watching Date A Live, you must be enjoying Kami nomi, and vice versa. Both story goes from a boy who have a mission to make a girl fall in love. The comedy level is similar and i'll say that you'll be like this anime.
The both involve the main character conquesting other girls, and slowly building up a harem. If you have seen Date a Live, watch Kaminomi, since it is a much better take on the story. Also, if you have seen Kaminomi, don't watch Date A Live.
Both protagonist tries to sort of "conquer" the girls so as to "save" them.
Heroine anime but these girls all remember and a super powers. To control these girls powers is to fall in love with them. So both are about falling in love with girls to save them. This guy plays dating sims once he is about to date the girls unlike how the guy from TWGOK is already a god at them.
Both anime have many things in common including little sister characters that are adorable, the idea that dating sims is the only way to survive rather than date in real life, lots of comedy, decent amounts of fanservice, etc. (I could go on and on). At first, both anime seem kind of dry and the artwork appears unusual, but later on you get used to the visuals (very quickly too, for all the people who base anime off of visual like me). Both are great, fun, and are similar in different ways! If you haven't seen either of them, then what are you waiting for?
Male MC has to make a large number of girls fall in love with him in order to save the world. DAL was generally more humorous than Kami nomi in my opinion.
Both is about conquering girls and increasing their affection.
Both main male characters have to make girls fall in love with them in order to save the world; kami nomi zo shiru sekai is way better
Both include a main character who, to save his own life and/or world, has to date unique girls and have them fall in love. They both also use strategies they learn from dating sims to cause these girls to fall in love with them. (Although in Date A Live, he's given instructions from his team with a small mic in his ear, in which they choose what to say according to dating sim scenarios.)
The only major differences is that in Date A Live, the girls don't forget Shido after he gets them to fall in love with him, and in Kami nomi, they do. Plus Date A Live has a futuristic setting along with extremely dangerous girls while Kami nomi is just modern times.
The protagonist lived a pretty much normal life, until the day a girl showed up asking for his help on saving other girls through kissing them, but just a normal kiss won't do, they have to elaborate ways to make the girls fall for them first! Does that sound familiar? Well, this same description works well for both.
"Your job is to make girls fall in love with you and kiss her". Date a Live and Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai male protagonist is just a normal guy, until "something" dragged him and must conquer their "target".
Pretty much the same overarching idea of making a girl fall in love with the main character so he can save them
Both shows are about a guy that is forced to conquer the girls by making them fall in love with them.
It involves a lot of harem, comedy and romance and the main character from both animes are somehow pretty similar.
If you enjoyed watching Date a Live, you will absolutely enjoy watching Kami nomi, and vice-versa.
There are several story arcs where a different girl gets her own story with the male lead. It is in an omnibus format, so it's not actually a harem anime. The main difference is that Amagami is more dramatic, and Kaminomi is more comedic.
-Both animes's setting/story goes by an omnibus format, and have small arcs that can either or not be diverging from the central plot of the story (with the setting intact)
-Both can be considered BUT IS. NOT. a harem, since the anime concentrates on one heroine to the next.
-Both animes have the main character encountering with a lot of different girls
-Both are funny and have very good romance parts
-in The World Only God Knows, Keima, is known as the "The Capturing God" because he can "capture" any 2D girl in any game and receives an e-mail offering him to "capture girls" and accepts. It turn out there are loose souls who hide in the bodies of girls and his with the help of Elsie, a Hell demon, he must capture the hearts of the girls in order to force the loose souls out so they can be sent back to Hell.
-In Amagami SS it is about Junichi Tachibana who got his heart broken during Christmas last year. The anime displays different girls whom he falls for and each heroine in the story has a chance to tell their story.
-Both animes are really good and I really recommend them
it basically the same except minor details like someone helping the main protagonist and real world and supernatural settings
they are both great shows so watch em'
Both series is basically about the main character having intimate relations with different girls.
Since Amagami follows the structure of the galge it based on, you might find it enjoyable to watch The World God Only Knows, which makes fun of a galge cliche characters.
Both also focuses on particular romance story arcs, although The World God Only Knows is a linear story, while Amagami is playing out each possible story arc you can play thorough in the game.
-They explain each girl in different arc,so you wont get confused
-A boy lucky enough to be surrounded by lots of girls
Both series feature small arcs that deal with the male lead and the female lead for that specific arc and the romance that develops between the two. There's some good comedy, a little bit ecchi and both feature some rather well developed love stories that will leave the viewer happy after each arc. The difference is that Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai ties all the smaller arcs together into one larger overall plot and in Amagami SS the story, for the most part, resets after each arc. If you liked watching one of them you wont regret trying out the other.
the male lead dates many girls same with kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai
When you watch Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai, you can't help but think of Amagami SS as well as vice versa. These two series has many similarities worth noting and should be no surprise once you start watching even from the pilot episode. Now, let's break down what sort of similarities they share:
*Both series have one main male protagonist involved in complicated relationships with various female characters in the series of contrasting personalities
*Both series has a lot of comedy, drama, and of course romance
*Both series has a school setting where many of the events takes place
*Both series are divided into separate arcs focusing on the main male protagonist with other various characters
*Both series has love challenges so as such expect drama, misunderstandings, jealousy, and other factors that are common in a typical relationship between a guy and a girl.
Both the Protagonist can Conquer all the Heroine..
Both anime have the main character falling in love with many different girls. Both anime have the girl they fell in love with forget about everything (technically since the story changes). Amagami SS is designed like a dating sim, where the main character falls in love with character to character and goes on.
Both are romance animes that are featured in a 'omnibus' type format. Protagonist gets a chance to get all the girls. The setting is also in school and includes comedy although it is more apparent in Kami Nomi. There is also a imouto or little sister character in both!
Both have the same story around an MC who takes different paths about relationships that go along with the plot, the differences are that an MC will restart at the same point as a relationship ends and the other is always followed by the plot as the MC conquers a girl.
both protagonist had different love stories with different endings
both had strong emphasis in each endings which will surely give an after-taste of emotions
Kami Nomi (The World Only God Knows) takes a more light-hearted, even more parody-like, approach to showcasing romance in anime. Both feature one guy seeking to "get the ladies" with Amagami SS using the omnibus format and TWOGK using a "Men in Black"/erase the memory approach.
If you like a more comedic romance than Amagami SS, check out TWGOK!
Both are about a girl who fell from sky to help the protagonist completing a certain missions ordered by god.
a girl who fall in the sky,
receive a unexpected mission
Ore no Nounai Sentakushi ga... may not seem like an harem at first but later in the story, a variety of female characters start to like the male protagonist. He had to complete missions for "God" so he can get rid of his curse to be normal. The same happened in Kami nomi except that the male lead had to make the girls fall in love. Both of these anime is harem since multiple girls likes one guy and gets jealous for the things he do.
Both of these deal with harem, comedy,and romance. Each of them are also have a mission to make a lot of girls fall in love with the MC.
These shows have nearly identical plots, though the way that they execute them is vastly different.
You see, the main plot of this show centers around the main protagonist (partnered with an adorable sidekick demon/angel), whose main goal is to have girls fall for them in some way. With Kami nomi, it's literally having them fall in love with the protag, while in OreCome, he does a variety of things (having a girl laugh at his jokes, taking a glimpse at another girl's panties, ect.). These are both done at the request of some sort of entity, with Kami nomi more for demons while OreCome is literally for a "flippant god". OreCome is a tad more crude in it's humour, both are hilarious, and well worth watching.
Both of the main characters have this problem that they are trying to fix with the help of their servant.
Well, this is somewhat similar because of the "harem". There are also some humour genres between these two.
TWGOK and Choices don't seem like they'd be the same at first, but their 'sameness' actually comes from their differentness. In TWGOK, we have Keima, a man who cares nothing for the real world, popularity, or any other such thing. In Choices, we have Kanade, who wants extremely bad to be popular again. One is helping hell with the aid of a fire-truck loving demon, while the other is being helped by heaven and a sweet obsessed angel. Every time I watch these, it's striking how similar they are.
Now I just need to figure out which of the assistants is more useless...
In the sense that its a boy trying to do something for a girl. With kami nomi, katsuragi tries to fill the emptiness of the heart of the girl to capture a loose soul hiding there while with Bakemonogatari, Araragi seeks to help all the heroines with their problems,
It isn't apparent when you just see their cover, but there are some striking similarities between these two.
Both of them is harem, well not usual harem where everyone likes one guy without single basis. Both has a single male character; all the other males seems to be ignored or just do not exist in its world. When a lot of male harem lead is either bitch or useless faggot, Ararararagi Gomi is very likable and Keima is like a religion. Bakemono follows 'Girl of the week' formula, and so does KamiNomi. Not to mention that gorgeous character design of both anime is from the same person, Watanabe Akio.
1. The protagonist is surrounded by the opposite sex (harem) but unique in its special way.
2. Involves strange romances.
3. Involves supernatural beings. (Though Bakemonogatari is more random when it comes down it while in The World God Only Knows it is more focused on the realm of gods, godesses and devils.)
Both MC doesn`t a lot of friends but the difference of this two is that Bakemonogatari arc`s solves mysteries while Kami nomi arc`s are actually romance.
Both animes are about a guy helping out girls trying to solve their problems. Both animes have supernatural elements in them. The male lead in both animes are not very popular but they have a good heart.
These anime are similar because they have that one guy who's trying to save other girls. This is done by capturing the loose soul inside the heroines in Katsuragi's case and controlling/defeating the demon or god inside the girls in Araragi's. If you like one I am quite sure you would like the other.
Both MCs removes their respective girls' literal inner demons
Kami nomi and Saekano are shows that feature an otaku protagonist surrounded by a bunch of girls with various interesting personality.

Both shows are very self-aware and manifests their parodical nature, almost as if they are subtly making fun of other anime in the industry. References to other anime can also be seen throughout.
While both have different plots, the MC's personality are exactly the same. Saekano is about a student who wants to create a dating sim while Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai prefers a student who wants to get rid of spirits possessing students by making them fall in love and kiss them at the end to get rid of the spirit. (same way Date A Live works)
The MC for both is a student who lives for dating sims day by day and has a long history of dating sims, to the point where both anime revolve around their obsession with it.
Both feature an out of the closet otaku who find themselves in a harem romantic comedy with gaming themes.
Both show's artistic approach is slightly different from the norm. Kami nomi with its pop out characters, and SaeKano with its colour contrast and attention to detail when it comes to female movement and gestures.
They both involve dating sims and have charcaters reflecting them.
