Characters & Voice Actors
So, this is my first Review on my favorite manga and anime, KamiNomi!
I'll try to keep it short and clean c:
-Story & Overall-
What I would like to announce, this is not your regular average harem anime. It has a good plot and idea to it, actually and it does make sense in the world it was created into!
The way that the main character has to wear consequences and plan out his actions is just entertaining (as are the dialogs) and it definitely made me sit down and read/ watch.
KamiNomi does not try to be more than what it is and keeps going at it's own pace, always introducing different situations and new challenges the main characters have to face.
Well, it is drawn by none other than Watanabe Akio - the designs, actually. If you watched and are fan of the Bakemono/Nisemono series, you already noticed this.
It really depends on the taste, though - I enjoyed watching the Art style for KamiNomi, however being a great SHAFT studio fan, I would have preferred (and as with many other shows I enjoy) if they had put in more visual effects like turning around and basically what Shaft does... *trails off*
The uniform designs are unique as hell - I seriously haven't seen anything like those before and it makes me want to wear them as well~!
Music wise, can I say that the Openings are epic? Have you seen an anime with Orchestra music yet? I mean really?
Whenever I listen to it, I feel like I am going to watch some church/Religion anime -- But the fact is, the music is heavenly. That s the only way to describe it.
Oh the characters...
We have two main ones, Elsie and Keima.
Keima, your average gamer boy who hates reality to it's last bits. His character is simple - in a way, yet very well handled and developed to make the series to what it originally is. He is a very likeable character (not like some douches from other harem animes *cough*Makoto*cough cough*)
Elsie, your kind demon who comes from Hell and guides Keima to fulfill their mission! (Not spoiling much)
Very naive and innocent, Elsie is seen to be closed into people's heart quite easily. She is silly and her obsession with trains--
Scratch that, those were fire trucks, I'm sorry!
A big thank you Zaraquiel99 for pointing that out!
-- is just so out of nowhere, it is almost creative. I never saw a character with such interest, really now.
The rest of the cast is not shunned or put into a corner either - they each have their own backstory, flaws and emotions, giving us a deeper, in-depth look to them and not being handled as some harem-element.
I see quite a lot of people who enjoy and like KamiNomi.
I even buy the volumes that I can get my hands on - it is the most bought manga I have in my room, which consist of 5 vols already.
I really do want to support Tamaki and his work, so I do not regret spending my money on this manga. At all.
He deserves it.
And that was my short review~ I hope I could convince you at some point... ; - ;
Please just give it a try at least! >///// read more
Hello everyone! My name is Austin & I will be doing my FIRST ever review!
As a big fan of romantic comedies, I fully enjoyed watching this anime & its sequels.
The story is about a high school boy who is completely obsessed with dating sims & therefore is known as the "God of Conquest". Due to his legendary gaming skills, he received a mysterious email asking for his help in conquering girls. Little did he know the message was pertaining to conquering real life girls & that the sender was from a cute demon girl by the name of Elsie. From that point on, he was obligated (by life) to helping Elsie find & capture loss souls hidden inside these girls.
[STORY] - 10
When it comes to RomComs, it's pretty hard for me not to give a high rating due to my love for them. The unique plot of a boy using his gaming skills to make cute girls fall in love with him is something completely unique. This story line probably would come off as very appealing to those who think video games can't help you in life. Each girl he conquers has a very unique & different personality than the rest, which gives new & exciting elements to each episode. So overall, even if I wasn't a RomCom fan, I'd still give this series a very high rating.
[ART] - 9
The art style of the anime is pretty much the same as many other animes, but that doesn't mean I don't like it. I'll admit, there are not many elements of the artwork that are different from other animes. But then again, sometimes its the best to stick with what's hot. None of the artwork is sloppy & is very well drawn out, so I will give the artwork a 9.
[SOUND] - 8
When it comes to sound, most animes in my opinion sound very similar, yet good (just like the artwork). The voice actors, though, do a very good job at making the right sound & tone depending on the situation. The intro & outro song are also pretty good, but not so good that I'd put it on my favorite songs list. Overall, voice acting & music is good, but not so different from the rest (which isn't bad).
[CHARACTER] - 10
Like I said in the story rating, all the characters are EXTREMELY unique.
> Keima - The way he talks sounds very indifferent. Also, even for a person who doesn't socialize very much, he is a very, very smooth talker & acts very cool in a way you wouldn't expect for such an anti-social guy
> Elsie - She is probably one of the most energetic & happy people I've seen in an anime. Always trying to please people & making cute remarks, it's hard not to like her.
> Conquered Girls - Each one has a different attitude, style, & appearance which can appeal to a wide variety of people. Because of these unique aspects, it keeps the story very interesting & makes sure the viewer can't predict what will happen. But due to the fact many of these girls are very lovable, it makes you want to root for one of them but then you realize in the end Keima most likely won't end up with that particular character.
> To sum it up, character design is very unique & appealing to the viewers, including myself.
[ENJOYMENT] - 10
Not much to say, but the fact that I did & still am enjoying this anime. If you have read my ratings on each topic, then you'll probably know why. But because anime enjoyment varies depending on the person, you'll never truly know how much you'll like it until you try it!
[OVERALL] - 10
As my first review, I decided to skip this since I'm not exactly sure what I should put here.
THANK YOU for reading my first review if you read it & I promise I will improve my writing & reviewing.

Review for Kami Nomi
Summary of the Extended Review Below:
Story : Liked the sort of many ending type season,
Art : Well done, No unique style though this is not a problem
Sound : Voices are done well (Japanese Dub) Sound Effects great
Characters : Mildly developed Main Characters, Well Developed Sub
Enjoyment : Lack of Ecchi Scenes (Family Friendly) Funny, Connection to the characters.
Story : Not your usual harem anime,It has a great plot though some things goes on unexplained. I personally enjoyed KamiNomi as its like watching the ending of your favourite anime, Where the protagonists finally manages to get the girl as to say. and this anime is filled with those "endings". 8/10
Art : The art style isn't anything new or unique to this anime as is may as well be similar to any other anime out there, But like I would say "If it's not broken don't fix it". Animation nice and clean, easy to understand , 8/10 is my standard score for a generally well done animation, 10/10 are usually for the anime's that have their own unique art styles that work, (it gives the studio that sort of recognizable style)
Sound : (Original Japanese Dub) Good work done by the voice actors, the characters sound like they should,(as in the voice fits the look of the character).
The sound effects are nothing special but they work. 10/10
(May skim through the series again in the English Dub to rate it)
Characters : The Main characters are mildly developed (personal opinion) there is still a lot of room for the viewers to get to know the characters better, The other characters that our main characters interact have their own back-story's and the viewers will actually get to know them better then they know the main characters themselves,( really trying hard to not give any spoilers). 7/10 cause I feel more connected to the sub characters than the main. and would like to see more of them.
Enjoyment : I personally enjoyed this from the plot to how it was executed, looking forward to watching the second season. It's refreshing to see a sort of harem slice of life anime not be ecchi for once, Looking forward to watching the next season. 8/10
Overall :- Story was well executed wouldn't have it any other way wish they could have developed their main characters a little more,
Art style nothing new though works well, Sound doesn't need to be any better for the sort of anime it is,voices work well (Japanese Dub).
Characters we well designed left me wanting to see the sub characters get more screen time in the next season. Enjoyment had fun watching it, lack of ecchi scenes makes it more family friendly, 8/10 could be improved in some areas though is a great anime anyway.
"Reality is a shit game!"
'Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai' ('The World Only God Knows') is about a self-claimed "Otoshigami (Capture God)" who can "capture" the heart of any 2D girls in dating-sim games. One day, he unknowingly signs a contract with a demon through email, and ends up in a quest to capture real-life (3D) girls in order to collect runaway souls residing within their hearts.
The first season of 'KamiNomi" involves the capture of 4 girls, with 3 filler episodes.
Katsuragi Keima is an interesting character. He's full of confidence in front of the PFP screen and calls himself "Capture God", backing up his claim with godly galge gaming and analytical skills. What's more interesting is that he applies eroge logic and theory to real life, disapproving people, objects, and events in reality as having "unrealistic settings". Keima is a reluctant hero in this show as he's only interested in 2D girls, and he received very little character development, but that's just fine because it shows how dedicated he is to gaming, and his "modern samurai" way of life. Filler ep-4 was a great display of his game philosophy and dedication.
Elsea is a demon who looks and behaves like a typical clumsy 2D girl. Her character development was very poor despite having a filler ep-8. Her very existence and costume/accessories is probably more suitable for 'Soul Eater' series, but her character is one of the best eye candy ever, and she's a package that makes the absurd premise possible.
Takahara Ayumi was the first target, a Sporty Cool. She was given only a single episode, but served well as an introduction to the premise.
Aoyama Mio is next, a Tsundere Princess. She seemed like an common archetype at first, but our Capture God finds out that she was no longer what she claimed to be. Her arc was an introduction to Keima's standard gaming strategy: Encounter, creating chances to meet often, formation of negative impression, and turning the negative impression into positive impression.
Then comes Nakagawa Kanon, a Yandere Idol. Her insecurity as a solo performer leads to unhealthy obsession with Keima because he shows zero interest in her. Her arc was rather draggy, but features quite a bit of insert songs and slapstick comedy.
Best was saved for the last with Shiomiya Shiori, an introvert librarian. The story's pace suddenly slowed for her arc, which turned from a slapstick-heavy comedy to serious artsy anime. Her character made this a very interesting arc. We as viewers can hear her "speech in the mind", but Keima who's used to be in our position suddenly realizes the difficulty in her capture because he had to work to draw out the inner voice. Shiori's character development was done very well with her gradual curiosity in the trouble maker at the library, and Capture God's eventual understanding of his target. It is extremely difficult to make slow, mesmerizing pace work, but the amazing direction and production had done just that. The atmosphere in the library and art house camera movement / perspectives were phenomenal, and painted a world of its own.
The final episode was a filler. While it was somewhat corny, it further establishes the protagonist's character and devotion to video games, and the pure absurdity of it was hilarious. The near-full use of 8-plus-minute oratorio also featured as OP was a nice touch that intensified drama. It also ended with a cliffhanger by introducing a new girl demon character, and hinting a sequel season.
Comedy was quite inconsistent. Sometimes intelligent, such as stating 3D girls' flaws with 2D logic, parodies, and God's Teachings. Other times, it's plain stupid, like Elsea tripping randomly.
Overall, the story and characters are very interesting, but as a fantasy comedy, it's filled with improbable situations, gimmicky story developments (like requiring the target to fall in love, girls losing memory after Capture), and the inevitable corniness that comes with it. Character development for all the heroines were done in a frantic speed as an arc-format anime, but every one of them were more than the typical 2D heroines thanks to numerous plot twists, and they were captured in unconventional methods that never gets tiring.
It is apparent that the ending was produced with another season in mind. In fact, at least 24 episodes may have been decided from the start, so it may still be a bit too early to judge its story and character development just yet.
The OP in 'KamiNomi' can only be described as a "Masterpiece". The animation quality, atmosphere, song quality, song choice, originality, transition flow, audio-visual harmony, appropriateness, effectiveness as OP, wow-factor... I would rate 10/10 for every aspect of it.
The art in this series is generic anime style drawn to perfection. Unique design for the protagonist, and Elsea must be the cutest anime girl ever. The supporting characters are generic but easily distinguishable designs, this works to support the plots where Keima predicts girls' personality based on appearance. Dynamic movements, funny chibi-forms, artistic representations, and great use of CG. The presentation was done exceptionally well with bunch of creative cuts, background effects for comedy and mood setting. Above all, the amount of detail is staggering, with the sheer number of objects in the background, books with pages of real texts, reflections on various surfaces, and attention to imperfections and stains on walls and floors. Characters also have up to 3 degrees of shading versus the typical 2. Despite the generic style, art work in this series is so outstanding that it can no longer be considered ordinary.
Seiyuu cast was excellent. The protagonist's voice had a wide range, from the absolute confidence while talking about eroge theories to humorous screams. Everyone else also sounded like they should, full of emotions.
BGM was really sophisticated and lively, complementing the story by enhancing the atmosphere of every scene. Different sets of BGM were used for each arc.
Kanon's insert songs were incredibly well done. Yes, they're moe pop songs, but the level of production was so high that it's hard to believe they were written solely for anime inserts.
Regular ED is a light pop song in good contrast with OP accompanied by a creative theme.
'KamiNomi' had a fantastic pacing and offers comedy, drama, and emotional attachment. All of it was backed by a masterful presentation that was incredible to the point of over-production. Despite its inherent corniness, I found this show to be extremely enjoyable. It is the series with a sense of highest degree of completion among all series I've seen so far. In fact, the production value in this series rivals that of theatrical anime movies.
I really liked the way they presented the empty feeling you get after the girls forget Keima's involvement after the kisses. It must be devastating to be the only one having the memory of their time together even if he wasn't interested in 3D girls. Nevertheless, our samurai hero will stand strong and keep the memories of "The World God Only Knows" in his heart as he continues on to fulfill his mission of capturing girls' hearts in the second season. I will definitely be there to hear the demon's "dorodorodoro" detection of another wandering soul and witness the Capture God`s miracles.
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.
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.
Both of them harem and related to "conquer" something
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!
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.
* Same genre : Harem, Romance, Comedy, Shounen
* The MC are antisocial
* Not a generic harem MC
* Both series have same character designer (Watanabe Akio)
* The MCs involved in a harem where the girls have a supernatural creature inside themselves. Each girls' problems must be solved in order to capture/defeat the creatures.
Both MCs removes their respective girls' literal inner demons
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...
