Kaishaku created anime; displays cameos of their animes: Kannazuki no Miko, UFO Princess Valkyrie, Magical Nyan Nyan Taruto, Steel Angel Kurumi. In the Kannazuki no Miko prospect, it displays the relationship of the alternate characters of Chikane and Himeko, Kaon and Himiko.

This is similar in the way the characters are drawn. The main character, Hatsuki, looks and acts a lot like Kurusegawa Himeko. This is the same for Hatsumi and Himemiya Chikane. If you look at this anime you will find yourself thinking of Kannazuki no Miko because of the characters and just because of the way the story generally makes you feel. I suggest it because of the magic in it, the comedy and because if you liked Kannazuki no Miko and the relationship between Himeko and Chikane then you will like this anime.

Both share a similar plot, where two girls build up a very close relationship, and then one of them becomes a bit naughty. Yuri fans should love both of these series.

If you enjoyed yuri anime's and you found strawberry panic to be one of your favorites so far, then you definately also need to see Kannazuki no Miko. *wink wink* hehe! And vice versa of course! Any Kannazuki no Miko fan would love Strawberry Panic. Trust me!

They both have 'changing destiny for beloved's sake' as main theme. What's more, their soundtracks are amazing (though they are made by other composers). WARNING: Kannazuki no Miko is shoujo-ai while Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica isn't.

Both are, essentially, yuri. Both have heroines who are best of friends, and openly explains how such events take place. The personalities of the heroines two are identical; one is sophisticated, talented, different, and the other is closeted, pretty, but otherwise normal. The majority of the show is donated to flesh out their predicaments only for them to come back to their bond. Both look good, and sound fine. Both could be enjoyed fairly well by non-yuri fans. Revolutionary Girl Utena, is more "revolutionary" than Miko. It discusses a handful of social topics, some normal, some not. Many of them are channeled outward into "battle of wills", which are portrayed  read more

There is only one anime I've ever seen which comes close to Code Geass R2 for the "ridiculous trainwreck" factor, and that's Kannazuki no Miko. If you want something so silly you have to laugh your ass off and love it anyway, this is the anime for you.

It's both in the yuri gerne and both series contain a bit of mecha (though, it's just minor mecha. Both series focus on the relationships of the characters more.) Both shows have beautiful music and also have a lot of drama in it.

Angel Beats! isn't a yuri, but it does have a lot of the same elements as Kannazuki no Miki especially the fighting scenes and the main character having lost their memory. They're also both romantic and very touching.

The relation ship between Chikane and Himeko reminds me alot of Koumei and Rikuson however kannazuki no miko is yuri (girl x girl) while Koutetsu Sangokushi is shounen ai (boy x boy)

Both anime have female main characters, take place on or nearby a school, and have mech battles. A lot of the drama comes from character interactions, and there are some love triangles and shoujo ai themes. While the overall plots are different, you can see similar story elements as the shows progress.

Kannazuki no Miko is my all-time yuri-faveness; where Strawberry Panic falls second. Sakura Trick this time, juz might rival Kannazuki no Miko on my no.1 spot! These titles, it's yuri-ness at its finest~

Both have yuri overtones and fun mecha battles. Both shows get pretty dark. Granbelm doesn't have a guy third wheel, but that's probably a good thing. Granbelm is also shaping up to have the two main leads be romantically involved, if that doesn't happen I'll edit this rec.

-Both involve romance of the same genre, and have also a love triangle because of a person of different gender. -Both have cool fights. But Loveless is Shounen-ai (Yaoi) and Kannazuki no Miko is Shoujo-ai (Yuri)

A high school girl (Himiko/Himeko) is suddenly thrown into an otherworldly situation with her closest friend to fulfil a predetermined destiny under a long-hailed title (Boka/Solar Priestess). Both series have some pretty legendary action scenes, heavy supernatural elements and a ton of drama. They're both 12 episodes as well so good if you're looking for someone shorter; and relatively happy endings.

Both have cute high school girls and giant robots, as well as the whole... "End of the World" thing. The series both have a similar feel to them, and I can't help but see a little bit of Hikaru in Himeko.

both have mikos, even if there isn´t love in umi monogatari both anime girls have a great friendship and are cute too, the plot is about a legend with 2 mikos 
report Recommended by wabowser
Both have great plots in the way of love, although the main character is lost in both anime, creating a climax in drama, the endings are sweet and happy.  
report Recommended by Kurenai_Ichi
Its not really hentai but its a shoujo-ai, there is one sex scene. Not quite like Shoujo Sect though, haha. It has a beautiful story line that any yuri fan should watch. And if you have seen Kannazuki no Miko I suggest Shoujo Sect as long as you dont care for some sex scenes, the story line is really cute!

The two main characters in both series are similiar. Sumire resembles Himeko, the clumsy, defencless, but working hard to protect their friend ones, Chikane and Lucia, the 'oneesama' characters - strong, hiding their own feelings to comfort others.

Both titles are in the mecha genre, only that this one involves yuri.

Both are heavily romance and lesbian themed Anime. Kannazuki and Iczer are also mecha and sci-fi anime.  
report Recommended by ShadowBlazer3000
These animes are some what similar. They involve shojo-ai or yuri type anime and both of the anime's include some of the emotional struggles that they characters go through in knowing that there love is changeing and blosoming.

Both are based around the Yamata no Orochi in Japanese mythology.

Yuri theme. Candy Boy it's a great ONA and Kannazuki no Miko does not remain behind.
