Both have the same girl to deity plot and the same scenario where the deity has to deal with other deities. The girl in one anime is a weakling, while the girl in the other anime can kick ass. The deity's job in one anime is to protect the girl, while the deity in the other anime wants to be famous because he isn't that popular.

Both have: - A Highschool girl that moves to the house of the main lead. - A main lead that is a kitsune (fox spirit) and had a darker personality in the past. - Main lead serves the girl even though she has powers. - Other youkai join them in the house as friends. - Slow Romance and comedy.

It gives the same feeling that Inuyasha gives but doesn't take itself as seriously. Although, Kamisama is more romance then Inuyasha. If you like a bit of romance, give it a try. I liked Kamisama better then Inuyasha.

They both have a similar atmosphere and sense of humor - probably because they both share the same director: Daichi Akitarou.

Both have similar a feeling about them. Both are romantic, cute, and have characters are likable, unlike many shows like that. In both of them, you can find good humor and gentle romantic scenes.

Both are pretty shoujo series about humans and youkai.

- Bot are romance, comedy, supernatural anime. - Both have a cute and cheerful main protagonist. - Both focus a bit on high-school life though Inari Konkon is more slice-of-life-y. - Both involve the concept of Gods, shrines and familiars. A treat especially for those who love shoujo-ish anime.

They're both alike with the main characters, a yokai and a human. A romance and a sci-fi genres. In Kamisama Hajimemashita, a yokai became human's familiar. As time goes by, they both felll in love with each other beside the fact that a human and a yokai pair is a taboo. The movie Hotarubi no Mori e is about the human boy who became a yokai/spirit and a human girl who was once lost in a mountain of gods. This is only 44minute anime film. The story revolves around how the yokai fell in love with the girl knowing that they couldn't be with each other and  read more

Reverse harem, both main characters have guardians or familiars, the main guardian (Takuma) or familiar (Tomoe) don't seem to like the main character at first, ect., ect. 
report Recommended by Ty-Chan
Both anime are somewhat similar: - Main Characters - Girls - Surrounded/Protected by Guys - Reverse Harem - Romance - Comedy - Action - Adventure - Lives Change - Both Nanami and Yona are around the age 16. The main differences that I notice right away are: - Yona is a Princess and Nanami is a Land God - Akatsuki no Yona is more about Princess Yona reclaiming her Kingdom

Similarities: Both involves girl and deity relationship. Both were set in a shire. Both have the same supernatural genre. Dissimilarities: The girl to deity relationship in one anime has a romance vibe, while the other was more of an elder to younger kind of thing. The deity in one anime has a tsundere attitude, while the deity in the other anime is a bit lazy. The girl in one anime is sweet, kind and shy, while in the other anime is also sweet, kind but stupid.

Though you can see very little similarities among the animes you can fetch little sparks of recognition in them. For example, one of the main characters are foxes. To the female main characters adds love-sick somewhat annoying stalker-ish persona. Now the big difference or one of the many are: first, one is a teenager the other a kid. Second, one is a daity the other just got herself a new family. And the rest of them just adds up to the ones just named.

Nanami, like Shizuko attends high school. She loses her home (because of her father's gaming debts), and forced to live in a shinto shrine which has a demon, Tomoe who is not at all happy being bound to protect her. After Tomoe saves her life, she fells for him and admits her feelings but he refuses her, saying he'll never love a human girl. The romance is funny,cute and heratbreaking at the same time, the storyline is very good. There is also competition for her attention: along Tomoe we have Kurama, Mizuki and other hot bishounen boys with a crush on Nanami.

Both animes have something like familiars, magic, a mix of comedy and romance, and other similarities. If you love Tokyo Ravens, you should love Kamisama Kiss.

Both are set in the human world as well as the demonic world, and the demonic world setting is very similar to Nurarihyon's.

Both are very sweet shoujo stories, kind of naive but also indisputably charming, with some supernatural elements. Dynamic of main pairs - Livi/Nike and Tomoe/Nanami - is somehow similar. They love to bicker but it is more than obvious that they care about each other very deeply - the only difference is that in "Soredemo Sekai wa Ustukushii" romance is more direct and open, while in "Kamisama Hajimemashita" main characters are in pre-romance stage of their relationship. In the end both series give you the same warm and fuzy feeling in your chest and have similar "fairytale" atmosphere.

Tomoe is like Kenshin. They were like wild beasts in the past but has become tamed and soft in the present time. Not to mention, they're both ikemens! 
report Recommended by silyangpilak
Both are about a main female character who is of some great importance and everyone tries to kidnap or hurt them in some way. Both include more than one main male character. Both are under the shoujo genre. Both are really good anime. Differences MC in Kamisama is a deity. MC in Lollipop just has a magical item inside her. Kamisama is more about supernatural powers Lollipop is more about sorcery. One is older and less popular.

Its similar to Kamisama Hajimemashita cuz the girls are all alone at the begining, they become prestess, God's and similar. The story is somehow similar, but in YURI way :D Its CHINESE anime. So if u descriminate book by its cover, better dont watch it. I too love japanese animes cuz i understand them, but am giving chinese animes a chanse cuz they are GOOD.

In both anime the main characters possess powers or blood other demons wish to devour. They both have a fox deity who protects them from these demons and at times other deities. Both of these anime delve in Shinto and Japanese tradition & folklore. Although these series both contain romantic comedy, they differ in that Wagaya no Oinari-sama is a Shounen genre whereas Kamisama Hajimemashita is Shoujo. 
report Recommended by foxrain
Both are interesting stories of often demi-human supernatural creatures or species with veneers of romance and art. Naturally Kamisama Hajimemashita is more arc-drived and also het, while Konohana Kitan is more slice of life with development, but very lesbian.

Tomoe and Yato are very similar, if you like one you like the other. Both have to do with gods and the struggle between balancing human life with the supernatural life.

The cutest devils/spirits help out two clueless Misses in their daily tasks. [Sakuma is a part-timer in a detective-exorcist's office and Nanami is a newly appointed land Goddess.] Kamisama is more of a romance, while Azazel is naughtier, yet both are definitely comedies introducing the cutest little devils ever.

romance and slice of life, this both series definetely my recommendation for these genre. when you feel tired with anime nowadays, try to watch this maybe some refreshment might change your feel. no drama, it perfectly fit for me because most of anime drama exaggerating the conflict. because of that you may feel annoyed with drama, and so many anime romance come with drama and then this is my recommendation about anime romance slice of life no drama.

The similarity between these two shows lies in the genre and similar cast. The supernatural, semi-romance genre is very evident in both animes and if you enjoyed this in one show, you certainly will in the other as well! In both series you will find lovable characters in the main female lead as a typical, semi-relatable schoolgirl which attracts the attention of (a) supernatural male lead(s).  
report Recommended by Misamee
Although the female lead in Kamisama Hajimemashita seems more ditsy and clumsy compared to the hard-working female lead in Saiunkoku Monogatari, both animes have a similar feeling where the female lead is surrounded by men who support and look out for her. The people around the female lead just want to see her grow and mature into a confident, strong woman.

Both has relations with Gods so they're supernatural. If you like watching Kamisama Hajimemashita / Kamisama Kiss because of the reverse harem, you'll definitely like Kamigami no Asobi. Both anime are also romance-comedy which means its they are both light-hearted and have humorous plotlines.

A supernatural romantic comedy where a the FMC, a sweet girl with daddy issues, suddenly becomes a supernatural being and is taken in by and taken care of by the MMC, her future love interest. While both comedies, Sankarea is a lot more serious while Kamisama Hajimemashita is mostly lighthearted with a small amount of drama.

This is similar to Boy Maid because first the mc (main character) lost his/her home for some reason and has to find a new home. Both main characters finds a strange man who was being "attacked by a dog" and they both let them stay at the household.

Both have supernatural fox/wolf creatures in it and have an element of romance between the two main characters. Both Holo and Tomoe (the fox/wolf creatures) refer to the other character as a child and explain that they are from different worlds. Holo and Tomoe are also kind of arrogant and sometimes tend to be a little mean to the other character-their love-interest. The Differences: While Kamisama Hajimemashita takes place in modern-day Japan, Spice and Wolf takes place in an older setting. Also, Kamisama Hajimemashita is comedy, while Spice and Wolf is more serious.

The rules for the worlds these two anime exist in are very similar and they both focus on aspects of japanese mythology/ideology and are very detailed with japanese culture. Main characters (though in very different situations) both have demon familiars that were famous in the demon world and have tragedies in their pasts that drive how they behave. Both anime have strong themes that demons and humans can never be together that the main characters are determined to over come. They also share the theme of accepting people for who they are and no who they were or based on how society views them. If  read more

I strongly recommend it as it contains romance, harem but most of all high quality comedy. The anime is simply hilarious(not the typical stupid humour)Both main female characters are quite different even opposite...but in a way they are similar as well as they eventually evolve in character and become even more admirable

Yokai and humans collide in these two urban fantasy anime. Both more on the slice of life side with bursts of humor and action, they also share similar elements, like Tengu and humans who become something more. Both great anime that could please a similar audience.

Nanami, like mei is a high school girl, with her own difficult circumstances. She is evicted from her house because of her father's gaming debts. Then she meets Mikage who let's her live in his shrine. The romance is funny,cute and heratbreaking at the same time, the storyline is very good. The difference is that Mey has one boyfriend, while in Kamisama Nanami is surronded by bishounen boys: Tomoe, Kurama, Mizuke and more...

Both anime series involve gods. Kamisama Hajimemashita is a story about a god who abandon his title and gives it to Nanami, making her a god. For Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi, the god abandoned the world. Which made Ai, wanting to save the world that the god have abandoned. Both girls in the show are working hard to protect what they love and doing what they think they're supposed to do. Both plots are funny in a way but Kamisama Hajimemashita involves romance. Both anime is a must watch!

tomoe and adam are total baddies. Kicking butts and taking names. nobunagun is more action pack and scifi with E holders while kamisama kiss is more a shoujo romance type. Both Tomoe and Adam have the same attitude with Nanami and Shio. Dont care really. i loved them both and want second seasons for both. Both endings are eerily similar.

I originally watched poyopoyo before watching this and I loved nanami immediately: "her voice sounds so familiar and happy and it makes me feel happy" and it has been verified. The same voice actors does the main characters for both shows (no not the cat in poyopoyo, but for the very very lovable owner of the cat. she's just the pet-owner type person).

Both are reverse harem-like around a little homeless goddess school-girl who needs protection: Nanami=Karin (little goddess school girl) Tomoe=Kazune (Romantic Interest #1/devoted-yet-prickly/classmate) Kuruma=Ren (black haired singer/classmate) Mizuki=Micchi Aside from having similar characters---no, that's about it. Kamisama is of the shrine-girl/traditional japanese kami type, while kamichama is a magic-girl time paradox issue.

There is a distinct focus on the relationship between humans and demons/spirits, with art styles generally geared toward a female audience. Kamisama Hajimemashita has more of a shoujo romance feel to it, while Hakkenden has more of a 'bishounen deal with their problems' feel to it with a side order of shounen ai subtext (thankfully this is fairly lowkey enough for those not so interested in such things to gloss over).

Both of these anime are funny and romantic... Well, Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun is much more hilarious, and Kamisama Hajimemasjita is much more romantic, but I think someone is going to have the same fun watching both of these!!!
