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.
Girl accidentally becomes a supernatural entity with guidance (and problems) from a sarcastic, argumentative (but sweet) godly-powered pretty teen, and tagged after by a sweet but slightly broken boy.
Lots of purification rituals to ward off blights and miasmas, lots of toxic spirits stinking up the place; a lot of shared territory with KH.
Silliness + humour + action + hints of romance, and with a surprise darker twist beneath the fluffy surface in season 2 of both shows.
Both are about a girl who means a supernatural deity. Kamisama Hajimemashita reverses the roles, so that the girl is the god and the boy is like a "shinki." It's a bit more comedic, though, and more shoujo-y.
Both shows feature a normal girl entering the world of minor deities (in Noragami, the girl becomes a half-phantom and befriends a little-known deity; in Kamisama Hajimemashita, the girl becomes a little-known deity herself).
Both shows feature a romantic thread and have a moderate (IMO the correct) amount of comedy.
If you liked Noragami, then you should check out Kamisama Hajimashita, they both have some sort of Spiritual/Godlike/Demons theme, the main character of Kamisama, Nanami, deals with the daily struggles of being a Godlike figure with the help of Tomoe her familiar and Noragami relates to a regular teenage girl, Hiyori, who becomes a partial Spirit and deals with Yato a God, they both contain a lots of laughter and some romance
The main similarity is that they both involve Shrine gods but Kamisama is more into the romantic comedy type while Noragami is more into action and comedy (though I really hope the romance in the story would progress, that's why I'm planning to see the manga). The characters of both anime have dark pasts (that I shouldn't mention cause it's for you to find out. Don't know what to add anymore so.... Thanks for the time and I hope this helps to whoever is reading it. :)
Both the main characters are deities or "gods".
Both male protagonist have a more savage past.
Both main characters try to become better gods, although in noragami yato is a little more serious about being a huge god.
Both are romances, although the romance development is stronger in kamisama hajimemashita.
Both are comedies.
And they're both a good watch.
1) Both Noragami and Kamisama Kiss main male characters have a very dark past.
2) Both male characters have supernatural powers and abilities.
3) Both about Gods and has shrines and spirits.
But the stories have different pathways. how?
1) Noragami has less romance and more action, thoughts and drama going on.
2) Noragami's main character, which is the God, doesn't have a shrine or a familiar.
3) Kamisama Kiss is more of a comedy-romance show felled with feelings.
4) Each episode in Kamisama Kiss has a new story that may not relate a lot to the previous episode.
Each show follows an endearing deity (Yato in Noragami and Nanami in Kamisama Hajimemashita) who tries to perform their godly duties to the best of their abilities, but ultimately they end up falling short, which usually results in hilarious situations for viewers. However, each show still tackles more serious personal issues such as feelings of abandonment, feeling unloved, and a desire to prove oneself. Yato and Tomoe (Nanami's familiar) also have certain aspects in common, in that each character has a mysterious past. If you want a feel-good fantasy anime, look no further than Noragami and Kamisama Hajimemashita.
One can never go wrong with supernaturals, gods, and deities as part of an epic plot. Kamisama Hajimemashita is lighter and romance-centered than Noragami. But don't be deceived, Noragami has a fast-paced, interesting story line that will leave you gasping for air. That, or the fact that person who voiced Noragami's MC and Levi of Shingeki no Kyojin is the same.
"An ordinary girl gets in touch with the world of Kami&Ayakashi (or God&Spirits) by accident" makes a start for both stories.
Both are mixture of Shounen Manga and Shoujo Manga. Although Kamisama is totally a romantic story adapted from Shoujo Manga, it also has complicated plots about the complex relationship between Kami and Ayakashi (mostly in Season 2). Noragami is the opposite (adaption of Shounen Manga but also contains romance).
What's more, we can know about Japanese culture while watching Noragami and Kamisama as both stories are based on Japanese traditional myths.
How can you not see the similarities between these two? Both have a girl getting involved with gods and spirits, both have great comedic moments but also serious moments.
If you liked Noragami and felt like it didn't have enough romance KH is for you.
If you liked KH but wanted more action Noragami is just your cup of tea.
I totally recommend both if you haven't watched them already.
Both are about gods and their familiars (in Kamisama) and shinkis (in Noragami). These "creatures" are related to the god and help him/her, live with them and have a strong relationship. Both animes relate a lot to this japanese culture about temples and shrines, which is pretty interesting if you want to learn more about the culture.
The main male protagonist has a dark past that they try to forget but that does not get into the way of the occasional goofiness. Both male protagonist are dieties or related to dieties. Cat(fox)-like features. Ends up slowly falling for the female protagonist. Will do anything to ensure female protagonist's safety.
The main female protagonist started off as a normal school girl, however due to an accident they have to deal with dieties. Although caught up with that life, they still go to school with two friends who have no idea what is happening. They also try to help out the male protagonist but usually end up as a burden. However they end up helping them in a way no one else could.
Other characters include another character who has a love hate relationship with male protagonist and also cares for female protagonist. As well as a character which holds a grudge against male protagonist but in a comedic way(only refers to second half of Noragami aragato). 2 bonus characters who stay with protagonists which help bring in comedy but are also needed in the plot. read more
Both MC becomes connected to the spirt world/with gods and deities
Both have a good mix of comedy
Both male protagonists are related to gods (Yato is an actual god while Tomoe is a familiar) and have a dark past
Kamisama is more romantic while Noragami is more focused on action
They Both have the same concept of god ands the supernatural world
Also Contain Comedy
and in general you get the same sort of feel when you watch noragami and kamisama hajimemashita
not as much romance as kamisama hajimemashita <- actually there isn't much but there are ALOT of opportunities to ship xD
Kamisama is extremely laughable, there are different fights than Noragami, but here we have gods, Noragami is somewhat more serious than me, but they are very similar. In Kamisama we have yokai, demons that can turn, like Tomoe, who is a fox. Look at it because it really is worth it.
With a supernatural setting, Noragami and Ao no Exorcist comes from similar backgrounds in a modern life setting involving otherworldly begins.
Both series' main protagonist's life changes forever after one faithful day after they learn more about what's in stored for them. They meet both friends and foes while helping out others along the way. Their signature weapon are sacred to them and takes the form of a sword to battle against adversaries.
Throughout both series, there's also elements of mystery related to the main characters' past that correlates with present events.
Even though Ao no Exorcist deals with demons and Noragami deals with gods, the two have a very similar setting. Both MCs are relatable to each other, and the fighting styles are also similar in both series.
PHANTOM/DEMON SLAYING: Main characters, Rin and Yato, are both powerful supernatural beings as Rin is the son of Satan and Yato is a god. They both try to restore their honour and a place in the world, even for such goofs.
The phantoms/demons in both worlds show a lot of similarities.
Both set in modern day with supernaturals run the world.
Both series are about dramatic, black-haired, blue-eyed boys who fight demon-like creatures with the help of their friends. More importantly, they have a similar formula of action with a large dose of humour and friendship. The characters in both series are immediately likeable and the plots are easy to get into.
Both anime include a world with demons, the only differrence is that in Noragami they are called phantoms and in Ao no Exorcist demons. And in Noragami the phantoms come out at night and are only visible to gods, spirits or half-spirits and in Ao no Exorcist there is a demon world where the demons can only be seen by other demons or people who are scratched by a demon.
Both main characters have a sword as weapon and similair fighthing style.
Both anime have supernatural and action with here and there a bit of comedy.
Except for the blue eyes of both MCs they give the same vibe though Ao no Exorcist is somehow darker. This probably maybe due to their difference in the character's background (i.e. Rin being a demon and Yato being a god). Both have action (slaying demons/phantoms or whatever they are called) and comedy (Noragami, in my opinion, has more to laugh at than Ao no Exorcist). It would be good seeing them fighting side by side. Hope this helps! Thanks for reading :)
Both series have similar protagonists as both of them are comedic but get strong when they need to protect someone close to them. One is the son of satan while the other is a god which makes them a powerful foe against there enemies.
Initially these two anime don't seem too similar to each other, but I believe the comparison needs to be made;
The color schemes.
Both anime have somewhat similar animation and completely unique and diverse colors that define their art styles. The character designs and eyes leave an impression of dazzlingly vibrant and fascinating to look at. If nothing else, the action scenes are also similar. Don't expect their stories to be similar however, one of the only narrative comparisons you can make is that both main characters use a katana of sorts.
In Noragami, there are souls, which remind me of the demons in Ao No Exorcist. Further on, the charisma of the anime feels very similar to me, though I can not particularly point on what makes it feel likewise.
Both these anime have the typical shounen set up of a powerful male lead fighting spirits intent on hurting mankind. Both have some slick well animated action, a cast of quirky likable characters and they both blend action, comedy and drama together to tell their stories.
Where things differ is Blue Exorcist is a much more typical action anime, whereas Noragami is slower paced and more thougtful especially when it comes to developing the characters and their relationships with each other. Noragami isn't as action packed as Blue Exorcist, but it has more depth and feels much more engaging.
Both these anime build up unique worlds that are populated with intriguing characters and conflicts. If you liked on then you should try the other. read more
-both guy MCs have strange powers
-both guy MCs have a light-hearted attitude
-both guy MCs use swords
-both have side characters that help out and are actually important to the plot
-both have female characters that aren't used for fan service
-both guy MCs care for the girl MCs, making it easy to fantasize a romance (even though none emerges...yet)
-Noragami's MC knows about his powers, which aren't fully revealed until the end of season 1
-female MC is way more important in Noragami
-the fighting is slightly different, as instead of having different roles in battle, there are pairs of fighters who work together
-Noragami doesn't really have a school setting
Noragami's story is less...violent read more
Black haired, blue eyed missunderstood boy fights demons/phantoms. Have love intrests that are not that powerful, but compentent in other ways. A bit of the same humor and mix of comedy, action and drama. Also rock influenced soundtrack. Both really awesome :) If you liked one of them, you probably gonna like the other one.
If you enjoyed Ao No Exorcist, you're gonna love Noragami too. There are quite a few similar elements in both the series, like:
1. A hero who's very powerful but doesn't know it/utilize his power to its potential
2. He's awkward, goofy and lovable
3. There's a female lead who acts as the tether between him and his "humanity" (when his powers go out of control)
4. The beginning has a lot of humour but that paves way to sudden drama, feels and action.
5. A bespectacled HOT nerd (Yukio and Kazuma could practically be twins)
6. A strong, fierce fighter who wears a bra and short bottoms.
Both anime provide great entertainment value, provided you don't put their plots or character developments under scrutiny  read more
Both anime contain demons/phantoms from another realm. Some demons are helpful in Blue Exorcist but all phantoms come from negative intent and emotions in Noragami. Monsters from both anime have a similar form and behavior to each other, except the monsters from Noragami are more darker and less colourful.
Both MC's have about the same personality. They share the same humor, and can be serious if the situation calls for it. They both fight with a katana against the demons/phantoms.
Spirits can be summoned to assist you in battle in Blue Exorcist, but remain in the same world using the summoner's energy as fuel, but the equivalent to Spirits (Regalias), are summoned to battle as a weapon after making a contract with them.  read more
Both are about spiritual powers, youkai etc. and in many parts of both series you'll find lots of familiarity. Perhaps Yato's social awkwardness is nothing aganist Akihito's pervert self, but in any case both of them are quite entertaining. Kyoukai is has more dark side story compared to Noragami thought.
These two shows are both popular examples of a certain type of supernatural stories that have become a staple of anime in the past few years. Mixing the mundane, calming feeling of the slice-of-life genre with a very distinctive supernatural element that you find only in anime and manga. The world is not as one-dimensional as you think and a roaming spirit might lurk in every corner. Only few humans can see them and only fewer are gifted enough to fight them, But drifting to the other side is not all fun and games because while our beloved heroes might have good intentions, there are people (or gods) out there whose intentions are not so pure and it is a protagonists responsibility to stop them! There are a lot of anime of that genres that you can watch but I personally find Noragami and KNK to be some of the most fun-to watch series this genre has to offer. With sleek visual styles courtesy of Kyoto Animation and Studio Bones, a balanced mixture of drama and action, and a dash of romantic undertones, Both shows will keep you entertained and maybe manage to make you chuckle and/or shed a tear in the process. read more
Both have the same type of vibe to them, I feel. Both seem to contain happy and shallow characters at first, then you fall in love with all of them and learn of their struggles and want them to be happy. Both are great and I recommend both!
Noragami and Kyoukai no Kanata are supernatural theme series involving spirits and apparitions. The main characters gets themselves involved in a variety of ways that changes their lives while helping others.
Throughout both series, there's internal struggles explored regarding the main characters, in particular with their pasts that are reflected by flashback scenes. At the apex of the story, these internal struggles manifest and brings out feelings that are reflected by our characters' reactions.
There's a small cast of characters with strange interactions between them. Expect comedy, drama, and action.
Both series are about a 'boundary' between two realms/worlds, where evil spirits are coming into the real world. Both have protagonists that have superhuman powers (Yato and Mirai) that are funny characters who are hiding an important issue, and both have a 'normal' friend (Hiyori and and Akihito) who try and lead them in the right direction, morally.
Both series have to do with the supernatural (i.e. yokai, spirits). The two also share a fair bit of drama, subtle comedy, and even brief romantic undertones.
They're also similar in the sense that you're allowed to watch characters develop and grow stronger together as they help one another reach their goals.
Though obviosuly different in many ways, they do share significant similarities. For example, both give off the same fantasy vibe, and they both involve a character that gets caught up in something to do with the supernatural.
Both animes have spirits where only a handful of people can see them.
Both main characters have "bad" pasts.
Both deal with a term they call a "boundary"
Both have a supernatural theme where they fight spirits.
Both are comedic in some ways.
Both have a romantic feel that's not totally canon at first but seems like it might be.
Both animes deal with a theme similar to fantasy; they both contain otherworldly creatures. They also both have protagonists who fight said creatures.
Both rely on humour and plot alike.
Viewers be warned that I enjoyed Noragami far more than KnK.
Noragami and Kyoukai No Kanata resemble each other a lot. If you like one of them then you will like the other one for sure!
1. At the beginning of both series the female protagonists are saved by the male protagonists
2. Both center around exorcising spirits called youmu and ayakashi that attacks humans
3. In Noragami they use shinki/divine instrument while in Kyoukai No Kanata they use blood sword, youmu etc to fight against these spirits
4. In Noragami shinkis can create a barrier "Boundary (Kyoukai)" and in Kyoukai No Kanata they create "Glaciate Barriers" that prevents youmu and ayakashi from coming past it
5. In both of the anime there are some characters that come forward to save the protagonists because they also helped them in the past
6. The episode 9 of Noragami and episode 4 of Kyoukai No Kanata are a lot similar. In these episodes Yukine and Akihito were locked up in cages of borderlines in order to purify their souls and go back to their old normal self
7. Both of them has plenty of humor. Their genres are almost same: Fantasy, Comedy, Action, Supernatural, Romance. Though Kyoukai No Kanata is dark fantasy
But then again while having similar story lines both of these shows have their own aspects. Noragami is great for it's sound track and character development and Kyoukai No Kanata follows it's own story read more
(NOTE: This entry keeps messing up no matter what I do. I am recommending KYOUKAI NO KANATA for fans of NORAGAMI, not the other way around.)
While Noragami is undoubtedly the more popular of these two, both are supernatural action series featuring a distinct variation on similar subject matter: battling against creatures unseen by the general public and focusing on those charged with the task of defeating them.
Kyoukai no Kanata a.k.a. Beyond the Boundary has perhaps slightly more slick animation, but just as humorous and action packed; with great characters and slice of life segments that don't feel much like filler.
It's an easy recommendation for any fan of the former. read more
If you liked the concept of people defeating "other world monsters" then you will certainly like either of these series. Each will have a mix of serious episodes and fun to watch ones. Each have a character who is stuck between being a half human half monster and needs to figure out themselves.
similarities of the anime:
-fighting supernatural creatures/ spirits in which only protagonists see and normal humans can't
-protagonists doing the job to earn money
-protagonists having dark hidden pasts
-protagonists having similar abilities and power
-protagonists "purifying" their friend/s
i personally like kyoukai though because of its humor. but noragami, on the other hand, has a cool soundtrack. :))
- Both consist of supernatural themes and contain similar action.
- Both have similar stories and ways with the phantoms. (They both focused on a small group, both main charactesr are supernatural beings of some sort.)
- Both anime about the characters trying to fend off supernatural monster while building relationships and getting to know each other.
- Both anime use the same style of blending comedy, drama and action.
- Both are modern fantasies with an underlying mystery and a well-rounded, interesting cast.
- The Animation and Art is also somewhat similar.
- Both have the same plot style of blending comedy , drama and action.
The action scenes are top notch with great characters and lots of heart. Noragami has more heart than action and Beyond the boundary has more action than Noragami. read more
They are really similar . Both are actions anime, based on supernatural spirits borned from human's feelings that the main characters are hunting . Animation and fight scenes are comparable . They both include a romance story between two characters . And to end with, the charm of those series lies in the humor, which is very concentrated and distracting .
Both series' involve the extermination of spirits (youkai), and both involve a central protagonist that has the potential to become way stronger than the rest. Both series also have their share of comedic and dramatic moments, however Noragami is more focused around the former
Both anime are about "gods" (Soul Eater: Shinigami). In both anime, some characters can change into a weapon and be used by their partner. In both anime, the "gods" (can) fight some sort of a monster that isn't human or another normal animal. They're also fun to watch. :)
1 person weilding another person who can turn into a weapon, It has that Bones humor where its really animated but really tries to put away the humor for serious moments. Animation is subpar for todays standards in noragami's case
Taking on a supernatural perspective, Soul Eater and Noragami deals with Gods and powers beyond our imaginations.
In battle, characters are able to wield weapons that are incarnations of their partners. As flashy as it sounds, they offer a host of powerful abilities that can turn the tide of a battle.
The main characters from both series has a hotblooded personality but is down to earth when it comes to casual conversations. At the same time, they do truly care about their partners and the people around them.
Both anime are very similar to each other, since both MC's have a partner that can transform into a weapon (swords, knifes, guns etc.) Thought Soul Eater is definitely a more serious and horror themed anime while Noragami not so much.
[x] Deep exploration between friendship and partnership
[x] Weapons and humans
[x] Comical relief
[x] Supernatural causes
[x] Colourful cast of characters that act neither black or white to add complexity
[x] Solving cases to make the world a better place
[x] Carry action packed scenes in each episode
Watch Soul Eater if:
You want a story about learning and changing oneself and dealing with other characters relationships. It follows different characters and each having their own unique perspective. It is more heavier on action, and the art style is more simple, but it has a nice halloween feel to it.
Watch Noragami if:
You want to match comedy and action, and are interested on focusing with a few characters. This one also deals feelings from the current and afterlife, along with vulnerability of Shinto gods. The art style is colourful, and bright. read more
Both anime has the same "style". there are people who turn into a weapon and the owner tries to kill the soul/phantom. Also the art has big meaning in both anime. We can find something special in every characters appearance in Soul Eater (for instance, Soul's teeth or Maka's eyes), the same is with Noragami's characters (Yato's eyes, Yukine's hair and eyes, Hiyori's "tail").
And they are enjoyable too.
Like Soul eater Noragami follows the idea of the power to turn into weapons whiles not copying each other at all. Like Noragami Soul eater also puts a lot of work into characters giving the anime a great variety of character types and personalities! Both series have the main plot of destroying corrupted souls and also solving the main problem in the series. They both also don't only focus on the main plot but have some good comic relief and side stories!
Both contain the idea of having a person be able to turn into weapon, and using that weapon to slay some kind of spirit. There's also the possibility for corruption in both shows, as well as both portraying the relation between master and weapon.
Similarities: They both contain almost the same battle scene structure "human like" turns into a weapon.
The one that holds the weapon both are the "masters"
Both are related to some sort of "God/Demon/Spirit" themes story
They both contain comedy and a love story of some kind.
The differences are that Soul Eater involves a group a kids going to a particular school to be train for a job and Noragami deals with a God doing particular jobs and hunting demons while trying to help the Human/Spirit "friend."
Both have main protagonist bound to a weapon that also has a human form. In Soul Eater, they use these weapons to defeat 'demons'. In Noragami, they fight 'phantoms'. There's an immediate understanding that souls can be consumed by darkness. Not only do main characters run into these dark beings, but they encounter other people paired up with a weapon that has human-form. The lead characters in both are especially motivated. Putting in hard work towards their personal goal. The music is also similar in both shows. That might be because they come from the same studio, Bones.
Both series are involved with people turning into weapons and their connection with their master and both series are invovled with deafeating evil spirits their are many similarities with their plot and setting and ideas.
Soul Eater use people weapons premise.In Soul Eater, they use these weapons to defeat 'demons'. In Noragami, they fight 'phantoms'.
Soul Eater is a lot darker (while still managing to maintain the chill vibe and good comedy)
Taking on a supernatural perspective, Soul Eater and Noragami deals with Gods and powers beyond our imaginations.
Both of these anime follow a similar genre of comedy matched with action based scenes that are important to the plot itself. While they are mostly action and comedy oriented, the characters are still incredible and make you fall in love with them.
In Soul Eater, Death Scythes can turn into weapons and are used by Meisters.
In Noragami, Regalias can turn into weapons and are used by Gods.
They are both animated by Bones.
Coincidence? I think not.
Both of these titles have a mix of comedy and more serious themes.
Both of them involve interactions between humans and being from other worlds/planes of existence.
Both portray higher beings carrying out basic human jobs in order to further their life goals.
And both have a fair share of action.
Both are about other worldly beings trying to make a living in the human world, and both have action comedy vibe to it. Hataraku maou sama has a more comedic and light hearted tone than noragami and both have likeable characters, an interesting world, and overall plot looming in the background.
-Both have action blended with slice of life
-Both have some main characters gods and they get familiar with humans
-Both of the main males are somewhat shallow and stupid but cheerful and lovable
The usual city setting with loads of comedy and actions sequence and both of these main chars get a lot of friends for the sake of fighting and they're both overpowered and neither of them are normal humans with a different past from usual
Both have the same concept of a goofy guy living modern day Japan being something much more than human with a dark past. Maou and Yato are a bit alike and they just seem to have the same sort of feel. Mostly comedic with more action than I was expecting and a bit of implied romance. Overall, both great shows.
To be really reductive, both shows star Gods doing essentially menial tasks in order to get what they want, all while having a nice balance of humor and drama. Noragami is a bit more serious at times--especially the second season--but I thought of Hataraku Maou-sama! almost immediately after I started watching Noragami and I feel like there's a good chance you'll like Noragami if you liked Hataraku Maou-sama!; I feel this way because I love both shows and, hopefully, you will too.
A dark past filled with violence and terror, gods such as Maou and Yato once lived life by exerting violence among others in order to accomplish their own means. However, fast-forward to the current time, Maou and Yato both display very different personalities from their past. Now seen as lazy, frisky, playful humans who approach things very lightheartedly often to their companion's dismay.
Friendship becomes an important theme in both series as it establishes a lot of important relationships and bonds between the characters. As supernatural beings who interact with normal human beings, these series rely heavily on comedic aspects to portray the distinctive and dramatic differences between those who come from different worlds. The humor and stories are extremely refreshing in both series, and the art styles are also similar.  read more
Both main characters are very similar despite one being a god and the other Satan. Both are really funny & laid-back and it is humorous to see these deities do regular guy things like work at McDonalds or fulfill wishes for 5 yen worry about things like clothes and food. I would recommend these animes for anyone who just wants to take a break from story driven animes and watch something funny and not get too psychologically in depth. I personally think The Devil is a Part Timer is funnier but you can decide for yourself.
Aprt from the fact that norigami is centerd around gods and spirits and hataraku maou sama! Is about the devil. The two anime plots differ quite a bit. However the blend of comedy, drama and a smidge of romance make both anime a must watch in my opinion.
These two anime shares the personality of the protagonists.. yeah they`re both powerful but they are changed by people around them, yet, they might look weak and normal but beware! they cant still be defeated easily!
Very similar series! Similar characters, with similar relationships- I couldn't stop thinking of Noragami while watching Hataraku Maou-sama!, they were so similar. If you liked Hataraku Maou-sama! then you will like Noragami.
Both anime have similar genres and have a similar story line even though they're completely different. The male lead sets out on a journey or search to save the female protagonist who tags along and later develops feelings.
Set in a modern time setting, the main female character's life is changed forever one day thanks to the handy dandy work of a supernatural being.
But that's not all that's changed. Her life becomes involved with supernatural beings that revolves around cases that puts her life in danger. The male protagonist strives to protect them and hopefully restore things back to order.
Expect action, drama, comedy, and humorous dialogues.
These two anime both deal with super natural creatures (in Noragami, youkai and spirits, while in Blood Lad, demons). There are a lot of fighting scenes, and both have female protagonists who want to go back to normal.
Note that this recommendation is based on the first episode of Noragami. It involves a supernatural Male protagonist, a Female Protagonist who enters into their supernatural world, ends up "dying" in some way and getting the Male Protag to help bring them back to normal. Yato as a character is also similar to Staz in some way, pale skin, black hair and a somewhat nonchalant manner
- Both anime's have easy going yet serious at times main characters
- Both anime's give off the same chilled vibe with a bit comedy and action thrown in
- Both anime's involve a power but lazy main
- The main Heroine in both anime's are very alike
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS ANIME!
Supernatural action comedy is the order of the day here, something which both shows manage to pull off pretty well. In each case we have a powerful male lead who thrives on being strange, a little selfish, lazy, and on their complete lack of common sense.
The action in each show is really nicely animated, with Blood Lad going for a mere stylized approach than Noragami does, but both definitely a lot of fun when they choose to let loose. Noragami is perhaps the more serious of the two shows, but never forgets to lighten up the mood with some well placed, and amusing comedy.
An eccentric supernatural boy vows to help a once ordinary human girl return to her normal self after her "death", even though the death was mainly his fault. Both share similar comedy and action, and the main characters are pretty identical in terms of their personalities. Fans of one will surely want to check out the other.
In both the mc's try to fix a girls soul with her body ending up falling for her ,also both the mc's are amusing and baka's.The one difference is that noragami is about gods while blood lad is about demons
Both anime are about a main character helping a ghost what used to be a human girl become human again. The tone of both anime is undeniable, shifting from the usual chilled and comedic tone to a more serious and alarming one in just a moment.
If supernatural is an ingredient, then it be part of a recipe for both Bakemonogatari and Noragami. Not only do they involve supernatural beings but also legends that blurs the lines between fiction and reality.
Both series involves action, drama, and comedy with humorous dialogues. Bakemongatari focuses more on word play and narrative dialogues while Noragami uses gags for comedy. The main protagonist in both series gets involved with events that puts their lives in danger. There is also a bit of influence from folklore and legends relating to various cultures to some degrees.
Both involve around folklore and supernatural beings. In fact, the supernatural aspect is smoothly and naturally incorporated into the show.
There are humorous contents found in bakemonogatari and noragami. Bakemonogatari has more sarcastic and witty dialogue while Noragami depends more on gags.
Supernatural beings are often targeting by humans for unknown methods. However, are they helpful, or hostile? In the story, the main male character usually help these people in need when they are in danger or considers them a threat to his friends. Conflict arises when the supporting characters are often possessed or being chased by these "monsters," forcing them to talk, or by battling them out.
Bakemonogatari is often more descriptive talking and often follows character arcs. Noragami usually battles it out with a comedic personality male type person.
Both have somewhat similar looking spirits that they have to fight. Both have quirky, fun characters. The dialogue in Noragami is almost as good as in Bakemonogatari. They are both simply pleasant to listen through.
Aside from the supernatural theme of both anime, they also have that same amazing, and vibrant art even though they were produced by different studios. Bakemonogatari envelopes its supernatural theme by using symbolism and mystery, while Noragami will give you striking action and heart-warming scenes.
One day, it happens. "Somebody help me!" "OK. Scare away evil spirits!"
Both are very similar. Really similar. Setting is about soul and monstrosity. To solve them is appealing. Because of many nice characters.
Koyomi and Yato are same personality, way of thinking, voice actor. They're fortunate by beauty women (But Yato's case is only Hiyori).
Besides this, many characters cooperate their situation. Hitagi and Meme, Yukine and Hiyori. They're mainly help protagonists.
In other words, story is quite interesting. Every scenes also breathtaking. Never betray you.
Story is easy to enter to. You can empathy both characters. I swear it's true.
Both ED songs are same vocalist by supercell. That's awesome quality. Their songs are very touching.
In terms of point of view, BM has more unique animation. Noragami has more action-packed.
Of course, they are high quality in every aspect of them. It's enough to concentrate.
If you are Monogatari Series fan, and looking for shows like BM, you should watch Noragami. read more
The concept of 'I think, therefore I am,' would be a phrase which comes close to describing the concepts pf Bakemonogatari and Noragami. However in these cases a more accurate way to describe it would be something along the lines of 'I think, therefore It is,' the short sentence essentially explains the 'Laws and Physics' of how these worlds work. Anyone could 'Wish' for something but in these cases that 'Wish' may create a God or perhaps a monster. Now my personal opinion would be that 'The concept and idea are very similar to eachother'
Rinne ( Shinigami) and Yato ( God) are both poor. Rinne goes to school but Yato doesn't'. They do request from people or help lost souls. In return they ask for money or some other offering for their work. Every little counts for them. The main female helps them with their daily routine and soon has a better understanding.
The story has relation to the spirit world and japanese folklore. A poor guy needs some money to survive in the "spirit world", he works with spirits and meets a girl with special spirit-powers and they became a mates to solve some problems and battles.
Kyoukai no Rinne is so much jocular than noragami, and you can find more powerful battles, and a serious background in noragami.
Both are stories involving schoolgirls who become wrapped up in the day-to-day lives of a deities that require small monetary offerings and go on adventures dealing with wayward souls still attached to the worldly plain.
You take a protagonist, should be a god or shinigami and a girl who's able to see ghost's and other supernatural creatures. Then you make the protagonists poor as fuck and you've got a funny show to watch
These two animes are extremely similar.
1) both include a male protagonist which collects offereings to deal with spirits
2) the main female lead is the only human that can see these spirits
3) They both have a cute lil' companion
Both of these animes really hooked me after 1 episode. The soft humour mixed in with action and supernatural really goes well with one another. I highly recommend you watch both. Norigami has a second season coming out in September so that says already that it's a good enough anime to get a second series. Watch them both and I'm sure you will love them.
They both have the same setting, plot and character role, except, Noragami is only 12 episodes long while, while KnR is 25, however in the character role category, the MC in KnR was more of a serious type than in Noragami, also, Noragami has that ecchi element, while KnR doesn't. When it comes to the plot setting the main antagonist involves powerful spirits, while in KnR the main antagonists were demons.
Noragami's anime original end is a blatant copy of what happened between Kenshin and Jinnei in Rurouni Kenshin. Formerly kill-happy (during the samurai period) leads that no longer wish to kill are forced by another character from their pasts to fight with the intent to kill once more. In both series, the already FAR more pacifistic leads became even 'softer' after interacting with useless-outside-of-romance heroines, and the heroines lives are threatened in an attempt to make the leads have the desire to kill once more.
I had noticed Noragami is basically Rurouni Kenshin but not a period piece in terms of characterisation earlier, given Yato's goofy facade and the 'eyes of a killer' samurai flashbacks. Plus, Yato fights with a katana in modern times! But the ending certainly cleared away any remaining doubt.  read more
Both revolve around a former killer for hire trying to atone for his past. In both series, the protagonist befriends a teenage girl and a young boy, the former of whom is a love interest, and the latter of whom is a disciple.
While watching this show I couldn't help but be struck by the similarities it shared w/ Ruroken.
- Both male protagonists have a dark, bloody past that they keep secret from their newfound families/loved ones.
- Both male protags have a light, carefree personality but switch to badass mode whenever there's danger.
-Whether it's a sad or happy scene, I couldn't help but feel it how similar both series were in terms of mood no matter the emotional setting.
-The romance in both is subtle and moves at a semi realistic pace.
-There is a great sense of family/finding a place to belong in both.
-Both have great fight scenes, although ruroken's are a little more realistic.
-Both are as of now, unfinished, but surprisingly it doesn't effect the enjoyment or satisfaction you feel when you're finished w/ either one. read more
Both shows contain great action and a little bit of romance.
Main characters have a dark past but are trying live differently. Unfortunately (or fortunately for the show), some old "buddies" can't comprehend this kind of change...
Noragami—think Rurouni Kenshin BUT with gods and demons.
Like Rurouni Kenshin and its protagonist Kenshin, Noragami follows the story of Yato, who holds a dark past which constantly comes back to haunt him and threaten the people he cares for.
Norgami brings the concept of Rurouni Kenshin and gives the story a twist which entices the audience magnificently. It is definitely something someone who enjoyed Rurouni Kenshin can appreciate.
Both have a main character with a bloody past they don't feel good about, both of them change their attitude when their eyes change, both of them use swords to fight, both are kind of vagabonds and both have a girl who they have feelings for!
Noragami is like Bleach without all the fillers. The main characters meet in a similar way, one of them (Ichigo/Hiyori) gets a power thanks to the other one (Rukia/Yato). In both animes they fight against ghosts/monsters and there are more characters that come from a different world where it's quite normal to have the powers to see (and fight) those monsters.
In both, the main characters when they met the first time, one got a power from the other. They share the same elements gods/shinigamis and hollows/ayakashis.
But Noragami has a darker setting than Bleach and it's shorter.
Bleach and Noragami are similar even in the first few episodes, there's someone connected to 'souls' 'soul society' whom the other main character can see as well. Both give a similar feeling with the monsters they encounter and comedy aspect slid in.
Noragami resembles Bleach in several small ways, one of the most interesting is about the way that the creators of both animes show their vision of how spiritual beings interfere in everyday human activities whether explicable or inexplicable.
Noragami se assemelha a 1º temporada de Bleach em vários pequenos aspectos, um dos elementos mais interessantes é sobre a forma que os criadores de ambos animes demonstram sua visão de como seres espirituais interferem em atividades humanas cotidianas sejam elas explicáveis ou inexplicáveis.
Noragami screams of a Bleach without way too hardcore-mainstream Shounen. The human main protagonist can see ghosts and other beings. The other main character can't fight on her/his own and shares her/his powers with the other protagonist. The Bleach-concept of Souls is in too. There are also the individuals in-between Humans, Souls and Afterlife. The main protagonists belong to this category. There are weak-strong and strong-weak relationships. The original multi-worlds concept of the early Bleach-series is there too, as well as a living world, and an in-between and an afterlife residence. Near Shore - World of the Living; the Divide - Passage to / Hueco Mundo; Far Shore - Soul Society. read more
The two animes' main theme revolves around spirits and gods. The main characters become friends with one of the gods. The weapons are very similar in the way that they can grow stronger. However, if you are going to watch Bleach, be prepared to watch lots of episodes as there is 300+.
Very similar protagonists. Both are poor and do odd jobs from strangers for some cash. Both Gintoki and Yato are seen as mostly goofballs but have very dark pasts and made many enemies along the way.
The series are both relatively lighthearted and comedic but have moments of high intensity and action.
-Both animes involve a main character who has a very mysterious dark past, as one of the most strongest people back in the days. (Noragami=Strongest God // Gintama = Strongest samerai)
-Both main character changed, they are no longer that heartless strong unbeatable characters anymore, rather more lenient carefree funny idiot
-Both main character ended up sorta jobless bums so they take any job they can find that others give them to survive
-Both main character fights creatures and monsters
-Both find companions along their way and they helped change the person for the better run
-Both are fun, helps others, at the same time has very depressing episodes
-Noragami = More serious and dark side to the story and has a plot
-Gintama = Mostly just parody, random comedy.  read more
-Both MC comedy but some moment they Became series
-Both MC have a DARK History
-Both anime MC Do any Job For Money
-Both MC Fight with sword
-Both Have Great Music Fight
-Both Are fun and will make you laugh a lot
-Both have some sad stories that will move your feeling
-Protagonists are EXTREMELY similar. I can't stress this enough. They both have a backstory in which they were ruthless killers, they both have designs dependent on a color (blue, white), they both end up being lazy and useless
-Both start out with the protagonist in an odd-jobs business, and from there, they go on to meet the other characters
-Both are hilarious but can be decisively serious when it comes down to it
Like Noragami, Bungou Stray Doys talks about a MC who does not have a home, and he is stray.
Both anime are pretty dark with good fights, and pretty funny too
And how can I forget, they both have "fight words" for their special powers
It's pretty action packed, but also so hilarious you will be cackling my friend. The characters are 10/10 and it's just REALLY GREAT OKAY, if you liked noragami in any way, shape or form you NEED to watch Bungou Stray Dogs. If you're questionable about it (like I was) just watch it i promise you will not regret it.
Neither the story nor the characters of Noragami have anything in similar to that of Inuyasha. However, there is a similar "feel" to both of them.
-The main heroins of both anime accidentally come into contact with another world.
-Both male lead have a past unknown to the human girl, and a woman from their past.
-The supporting characters are friends who can be counted upon.
-Spirits or demons hunting are daily occurrences.
Inu Yasha is a lengthy anime with a well thought plot and many incidences, where as Noragami is only 12 episode long adaptation of the manga series.
It provides comedy and fantasy, but also becomes serious at times. There is some romance in both of these animes but it is not the main focus. More of a side. If Noragami gets a second season, however (hopefully), it's likely that more romance will be added it.
Both very enjoyable animes and funny.
Two separate worlds where one girl is able to travel to both and experience supernatural phenomenon. Element of love is present in both animes (more so in InuYasha). Relationship wise between main characters is similar in both animes being strong, supportive and passionate. There are also many characters to meet in both series that create a fun, comedic atmosphere.
Both share a lot of genres and themes such as action, fantasy, comedy and romance. The characters are also very similar.
-Yato is a sword-wielding outcast with a dark past whose one desire is to be acknowledged and accepted, just like Inuyasha.
-Hiyori is a 15-year-old school girl who finds herself in a world she never knew existed and discovers a new power to help her survive, just like Kagome.
-Yukine is a sarcastic young boy who has a younger-brother relationship with the heroine, frequently bickers with the male lead and can turn into a living weapon, just like Shippo.
There's a few others, but that would be giving away too much.
If you liked Noragami, I highly recommend Inuyasha, so long as you like long-runners. Vice-versa as well, if you prefer short runners. Although I personally think Inuyasha is the better of the two by a wide margin. read more
Both female MC get involved in a world of spirits and other suernatural beings. Also, both male MC try to hide their past from the female lead. Highly recommendable for those who like stories about action, adventure, spirit hunting and in the case of Inuyasha, romance.
Supernatural battles and a similar student/mentor relationship at the center. The "mentors" (Yato and Reigen, respectively) are often silly/comic relief/over-the-top, but they can and do get serious for the sake of their students and are genuinely good mentors to them. Also have similar monster designs.
They both involve spirits and there is a similar art style surrounding them. There's also a bit of a get-rich-quick vibe going around Yato that is reminiscent of Reigen's being a con artist. Like Noragami, I would say that Mob Psycho 100 has strong characters but is a bit lackadaisical in the story department.
- Both have monsters able to infect humans (Ayakashi/Gastrea)
- Infected humans turn into the monster
- Both have some people fighting against the monsters (Yato & Yukine/ Rentarou & Enju)
- Noragami has the God/Divine Weapon ranking, Black Bullet has the enforcer/promoter ranking
Short action series that you'd wish were longer, lacking more exploration with the concept and characters. Both series have similarities with the monsters, weapons and partners. Both have fantastic visuals and fluid animation and nicely complimented with its dynamic score.
I really dont know why, but as i watched the first ep it instantly reminded me of noragami ... Maybe due to the about similar drawing, the fight scenes are also quite similar.
Also the form of the gastrea is similar to the ghosts in noragami ... With the ability to only kill them with a special weapon.
I kindda thought that Rentarou looks like yato-kami <3 ... Its just my personal opinion :))
Solving problems, offering deals, and dealing with spiritual apparitions. Noragami and xxxHOLiC offer an experience like no other with its supernatural themes.
Both series' main male protagonist are involved with dealing with conflicts that deals with supernatural phenomenons. They take place in a traditional/modern setting with various gags. The supporting characters also play various roles that influences each conflict. There is a good mixture of comedy, drama, and emotional basis that makes both series enjoyable.
The anime both deal with the supernatural/afterlife and use Japanese folklore in some episodes. xxxHolic is about a boy named Watanuki who can see the supernatural, like spirits. He wants to cure himself of this "Curse," much like Hiyori wants to cure her half-phantom state. Both of them meet a character that says they can cure it, and eventually learn to cherish and embrace their gift. If you love a good story line that can go from serious to funny with no problem and with mysteries of the supernatural, I'd give this a try.
In my opinion these two are sort of under rated/unknown series (especially FnM) compared to the mainstream ones and end up not getting enough attention, even tho they both deserve more!
They are different from eachother but yet have some strong common points:
- supernatural genre is a very important theme to both, although Noragami tends to have more action while FnM gets to be more dramatic
- creatures like gods, ayakashi, youkai, spirits and whatsover are daily routine for both stories (Noragami is specially mainly setted on gods)
- both main characters have to deal with exorcisms, particoularly FnM, but while the usual term "exorcism" is treated like our classic understanding of it in Noragami (as in: exorcise a bad spirit); in FnM instead the exorcism is nothing of the sort, it's actually a good thing for a spirit being exorcised as it can get him "home", therefor we get to see the point of view of spirits, ayakashi and such which is not that common for series that involve exorcisms. We can say that in FnM the word exorcism shows us a whole brand new idea for it.
- both stories evolve around a job (granting wishes in Noragami and requests of exorcism in FnM), a -supernatural- job, of course.
- like in many series with the supernatural genre, both are about a special world that coexist with ours but that not everyone has the ability to see it or its extraordinary creatures
- they are both a breath of fresh air
So my two cents are: if you liked one of these you might easily enjoy the other too!
Noragami and The Morose Mononokean are both series about a person (a god in Noragami's case) who runs a business. In Noragami the business is basically just anything. In The Morose Mononokean the business is exorcising yokai. One of the other main characters in each series is kind of forced into the situation, due to various circumstances. Towards the beginning of each series, one of the main characters is in the nurse's office/hospital, because they keep passing out. Each series has to do with disposing of evil spirits, but Noragami is a lot more action oriented.
both anime are related to something which exits but only few can see it and the characters are stuck with a problem with which they have to stay with the other lead.
they both are similar but in different ways if you like Fukigen na Mononokean than you will like noragami
The first and most similar thing that both anime share is the close bond and friendship the "masters" have with their "servants" in Noragami's case, the bond the Gods have with their Regalia/Shinki and in Servamp the bond the Eve's have with their Servamps.
Also Servamps can have subs(lesser vampires created by and working for them) and they treat these lesser vampires like their own family, which is another similarity to how some Gods treat their Shinki in Noragami.
Another similarity is that lesser Vampires are created by the Servamps using dead/dying humans, giving them another chance at life similar to how the Regalia/Shinki are souls of dead humans who are given another chance at life by the Gods in Noragami.
For an Eve to form a contract with a Servamp they must give them a name and an item, in Noragami when a God wants to use a soul as their Regalia/Shinki they also have to name them.
Shinki/Regalia take on various alternate forms ranging from weapons, armour, shields, household items, accesories, jewlery, clothes, animals etc. While Servamps have alternate forms too, they are all animals/living things.
A God must have his/her Regalia/Shinki near to be able to fight, while an Eve relies on their Servamp too, they can however battle on their own as well.
Cool Battle scenes that will have you at the edge of your seat.
Overall Noragami has way more comedy(Servamp does have it's short moments of comedy though, i'd say Aragoto is more serious in tone and on par with Servamp in that regard) while the battles in Noragami are pretty much bloodless the battles in Servamp however can be very bloody.
Overall if you liked one you might like the other one as well since they share some very important aspects! read more
Strongest god and King of vampire. Victory or Defeat? I don't know about it.
Both are pretty cool, stylish, exhilarating. Setting is similar. God = Master, Shinki = Servant.
Yato and Mahiru. Certain events made them contract each Yukine and Kuro. They're same voice actor (Yuki Kaji).
Unfortunately, Servamp hasn't female character like Hiyori. Actually call for it on this show is wrong.
Both OP songs are rock/metal. Not to mention, it's excellent. Servamp's case is a bit persistent habit.
Main theme is fighting troublesome. Involvement type. And getting better and better storyline.
Both are comedic style, but Servamp is more dark and many plot twist. Noragami is funny and enjoyable.
Nora and Tsubaki are very similar characters in every way. They're really mysterious. You can understand if you watch both of them.
TBH, I prefer Noragami because this show is more high quality. But Servamp also supremely likable.
I recommend Servamp to Noragami fans. I don't regret I write this. Check it out! This show needs more score, popularity, favorites. read more
Both series feature characters who fight it out with their partners that turn into weapons. Noragami being spirits, and Servamp being vampires. On top of this, both series have an action packed, shonen feel to them and they both have likeable lead characters.
Noragami has similarities to Dororo in that they both feature main characters who are samurai-like who are killing demons (or spirits in the case of Noragami). They both have a main protagonist who is accompanied with a younger side-kick like character. The main difference between the two is the time periods (Noragami takes place in the modern era) and that the main protagonists have different personalities. Still, there are enough similarities that you would likely like the other if you like one.
Both show's MC is an outcast, samurai-like character, who is looked down by the communitiy he originates from. Both of them seeks redemption while hunting demons, and a young female character gives moral support and guidance to both MC's. The fight scenes are pretty intense and well-animated in both shows.
In short, if you like Dororo for the aspects of Japanese culture then Noragami will most likely vibe well with you. (and vice versa)
Admittedly, Noragami is a bit more light-hearted but gets much darker as the show progresses. Dororo starts out rather dark.
Many of the scenes in later episodes of Noragami look like they came straight from Dororo. Not to mention that the art style is rather similar in my opinion.
Noragami constantly pops up in my mind when I am watching Dororo.
+ Both are action stories with supernatural and comedic elements.
+ They fight and kill monsters in a very similar way to upbeat music.
+ Features a male main character with a tragic past, who is dorky and silly, yet can be serious when necessary.
- both have exorcist like characters
- both exorcism scenes are done with action or fight scenes
- when fight scenes happen they go to some parallel world to prevent damage
- both have monster like creatures that should be prevented from harming humans
- Both are shounens, action, supernatural.
- They present corrupted beings born of the bad feelings of the people and attack humans and should be exorcised (in the case of Sousei by exorcists and Noragami by gods).
- Both protagonists have tragic past in which they had to kill people.
Both have supernatural creatures and another invisible "world" that cannot be seen by normal humans. Both have normal people forgetting the presence of people that were affected by the "other world." Both MCs have long "katana like" swords. The flame hazes can be the gods of Noragami. Both have a girl that doesn't fight but gets involved with the "other world." Both have antagonists that have many "pawns/weapons."
Flame Haze are basically Gods of Noragami. Both anime have two MC's. One who is a God/FH, and one who is a human. Both God/FH have a katana that is the spirit of a human, that they use to hunt demons, aka Ayakashi/Denizens. Yato gets into fights with other Gods they the same as Shana does with other Flame Haze. Both human MC's run into the God/FH and acquire a power that allows them see and interact with these other worldly spirits, and get caught up in the middle of the fights.
Main difference between the two, is Noragami has terrible pacing, vague character development, plotholes, very little action, poor soundtrack, and horrendous out of place slapstick repetitive comedy. Where as Shakugan no Shana is actually good, has an incredibly fulfilling story, great characters that have purpose, great music, action, romance, suspense, and great twists that lead to a very thrilling conclusion.  read more
"Noragami" and "Blood Blockade Battlefront" / "Kekkai Sensen" are two supernatural action series by Studio Bones focusing on individuals with special abilities battling against creatures from another world.
These two shows contain high-impact fight sequences in an alternate modern urban setting. Also, the protagonist of both shows is a formerly normal person who suddenly gets dragged into the situation, though each respectively has a different reason as to why they continue to cooperate.
An interesting world built around the ideas of the supernatural, in Noragami's case this is gods with interesting powers in abilities. This show eases the viewer into its rich environment well. It includes a great variety of comedy, shounen action, and general feel good moments, by no means a 10/10 but it is beautifully animated and has a memorable and intriguing story.
If you like stylish and colorful visuals, a fun cast of characters and the feel of an urban fantasy, then Kekkai Sensen (Blood Blockade Battlefront) is definitely a good place to go from Noragami. However, Kekkai Sensen is often more dire than Noragami; the stakes tend to be higher and the drama is more palpable. But if you love over-the-top characters getting up to all manner of craziness in a beautifully designed world, then you can't go wrong with Kekkai Sensen.
As theme, Both are deal with supernatural elements. Zetsuen is Magic. Noragami is Ayakashi.
These phenomenon bring about various effects. For example, It is kindness and thought.
Plot isn't straightforward. Mahiro Fuwa saw Aika's sudden death, He sworn revenge for her.
Yoshino Takigawa is Mahiro's best friend. He cooperates Mahiro because he also Aika's friend.
Subsequently to their incident, Noragami's pattern is just the same.
Yato meets Hiyori Iki in a certain event. In addition to named boy Yukine, They act for many problem resolution.
Both characters and style are quite similar. Yoshino and Mahiro are like brothers. Yoshino and Aika are like well-suited couple.
Yato, Hiyori, Yukine are charming trio. Just like family. Yes, relationship is excellent.
And Both are mixture of serious and comical. Especially Noragami has very funny and laughable scenes.
Fight scenes are great. Zetsuen is psychology, Noragami is direct confrontation.
Voice acting is really amazing. I only heard Japanese version though, It was good for ears.
Zetsuen and Noragami have distinctive splendor. If you interested in them, check it out! read more
There's a similar vibe and atmosphere about these anime. Both are set in a city where mysterious and supernatural things happen with a cast of colorful, out of the ordinary characters. Even the openings feel alike.
Similar urban setting, witty dialogues, fight scenes and supernatural elements to be found in both.
Durarara focuses on various characters on Tokyo's Ikebukuro district.
The latter is more centered on the main character and has more shounen aspects.
Durarara overall has a longer run and feels more mysterious. Noragami is more accessible.
Either way they still settle the same atmosphere and keep you on the seat.
Both series focus on characters involved in the supernatural world and take a "monster of the week" approach (though Noragami is more action-centric compared to Natsume Yuujinchou which is more character-centric).
- Both have mystical creatures. (Youkai and Phantom)
- Both have characters that will exterminate the mystical creatures. (Gods and Exorcists)
- Both of the main characters have the same seiyuu. (Hiroshi Kamiya for Yato and Natsume)
- Both have an interesting story. (In my opinion)
The importance of friendship and family as well as the meaning of "humanity" are the messages of these shows. Noragami is an action packed show. In Natsume's Book of Friends, however, is more calm and relaxed.
Very similar animes.
-Both about the main guy character has a very dark past, who is known for very cold and heartless.
-Both about main guy meets a girl who changes him and he starts to become a better person
-Both main girl character are very similar
-Both main girl character finds out about the truth of the world, like how some people has special abilities and cleanse monsters / people who sinned
-Both involve action and very sad
-Both very good anime that will give you the same feelings
* Both of them feels like reverse harem anime.. (1 main girl & ”N” main guys around her)
* Main male leads ( Yato & Okami ) has a dark past behind them...
* Main female leads ( Sakura & Hiyori ) are strong spirited/willed girls which is awesome, both of them have some rare power or something...( btw Sakura is better in everything than Hiyori )
* Both female leads always stalks/follows main male leads...
* Both of them has really unlikable antagonists ( seriously, I hate em')
* Lots of supernatural / slice of life moments ( so slow....)
* OST's are great...harem is cool....action is great but still rare... read more
Both madoka magica and noragami uses super-natrual occurrences to explain why corrupt and malicious outcomes occur in people's daily lives; such as demons, spiteful spirits, and corruptions of the soul in the hearts of people in a modern society
These two anime don't really have similar art or styles, however the main concept is pretty similar. They both have a god-solving-problems thing going on; and both gods have problematic pasts. Furthermore they're both assisted by a human assistant, girls with whom they end up developing a relationship which is more overt in Noragami. While Loki Ragnarok focuses on Norse mythology Noragami plays into Shinto folklore, and gods roam around the human world in both of them.
So if you're into exploring the relationship between gods, and enjoy a good dash of folklore in your anime, then enjoy!
Yato and Loki are gods who doesn't really have a good reputation in the world of gods. Both had to live in human world and meet a human girl (which is also the female lead).
Other gods appear one by one.
- Kings in K, Gods in Noragami
- Clansmen in K, Regalias in Noragami
- Kings fight each other in K, Gods fight each other in Noragami.
Both anime have a comedy feeling most of the time, but when the plot kicks in, everything escalates very quickly.
Both anime have great animation, great story and great fight scenes.
If Kings and Gods fight each other, which of them do you think will win?
Both have very stylish and cool things. That's so sick! I can't stop loving both characters.
Misaki Yata and Yato are similar personality and fighting style. Worth seeing.
Art style is freaking great. Well done details. Beautiful backgrounds. So many bishounen and bishoujo. Easy on the eyes.
Plot line also similar. Sometimes simple and clear. Sometimes very serious.
It is never predictable. Noragami reminds me of K's that scene. I don't say it.
Both soundtrack are memorable. ED songs are eargasm. Wonderfully top-notch.
Noragami has more laughable scenes. K is basically earnest vibes.
If you loved K style, you'll absolutely like Noragami. I promise.
"May God bless you." - Yato read more
In both animes the characters that fight the "evil" have some weapons that only them can use. In D.Gray-Man the exorcists have their own innocence while in Noragami the gods need to find a pure soul to create their own which reminds me of how the akuma and souls are related in the show.
Also, D.Gray-Man and Noragami are more focused on a story of one main male character and his group of friends that always contains one girl that both want to protect more than anything. We can also compare how Yato and Allen lost their weapon for various reasons but still never gave up on fighting.
Yato and Yukine combo also reminds me of Kanda and his innocence. Both animes are amazing and the story behind the main character is kinda similar.  read more
The two MCs in Trickster have a very strong resemblance to Yato and Yukine in Noragami. So if you enjoy that relationship dynamic, you'll enjoy watching these two together.
The plots are relatively similar as well: the MC carrying out a series of tasks, and the other begrudgingly tagging along for different reasons.
So far both shows seem pretty similar in some aspects, but are very different in others. Trickster is a story based on problems that will happen on a normal person life and there is Boys' Detective Team which will help you with that problem as long as you pay them. This is a similarity between both shows because Yato from Noragami will also fix your problem if you pay him five yen which is much cheaper than Trickster.
However, unlike Trickster, Noragami story is based on Gods and supernatural events related to demons. In Trickster the characters just face the what you can call normal problems.
But in both animes there are two characters that get along really well (even though it doesn't look like it sometimes). Trickster's Kobayashi and Hanasaki and Noragami's Yato and Yukine. Kobayashi and Yukine are also pretty similar to each other and the same happens with Yato and Hanasaki. Plus this double as a female friend that advises them a few times, Noragami's Hiyori and Trickster's Noro.
In conclusion, we can find similarities in both shows in this little things but in general the stories behind the shows, so far (I'm currently watching Trickster as it airs), aren't very similar. This, however, doesn't mean that they are really good animes and are worth your time.  read more
Both have a similar feel and atmosphere. Moreover, the male leads on both show is considered to be in the lower social strata. Both male leads also have a dark past that was masked by their cheerful personality.
The action and romance genre on both shows fit nicely, too. Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry, however, has more fan service than Noragami as it is leaning more on a wholesome show.
"We will beat your almighty by with our strength. And we exceed furthermore limit!"
Both are very stylish and action-packed shows. So enjoyable. Not only art and animation, but fight scenes are always amazing.
Protagonists of each shows, Yato and Ikki are unknown true power from common people. They are really strong men.
In addition to it, both characters are swordsmen. Yato uses weapon named Shinki. Ikki uses sword by summon.
Hiyori and Stella are each heroine. They also never quits, no matter what. Stella is fighter.
What is proper strength? Love, bonds, friendship. Almost characters are fighting for them. They have powerful faith.
Even if they're about to be frustrated, they never give up. That's why I love both cool characters.
As vibes, Both can share mixture of comedic and serious. Rakudai Kishi is more dark though, It's not that thick.
I can say this. both are shows that you enjoy by looking at visuals. Of course, other elements also excellent.
Must watch if you're heavy action fan. As far as I'm concerned, I want Noragami fans to watch Rakudai Kishi. read more
Both MC's fight to protect the grounds from demons that appear during the night.
Both stories involve 2 Main male characters and 1 female MC, who build stronger relationships as the storyline unfolds.
Both series deal with spirits and youkai and the exorcism of them before they in danger the human race.
Both series have great balance of Comedy, Action, Adventure, Supernatural, and Fantasy elements.
-In this anime the protagonists are exterminating ayakashis.
-Initially both of these anime are episodic but after a while they have a full-fledged storyline (kekkaishi takes longer though to get there because it has more episodes)
Tokyo Ravens and Noragami come with the package of dealing with spiritual beings with magic/abilities. The main male protagonist often comes in contact with these beings in their perspective worlds.
Both series' main male protagonist has a past that is explored throughout their stories. Through them, certain plot elements are unraveled that ties together with its themes.
Both series also takes place in a school life setting.. Tokyo Ravens has more romance while Noragami presents excellent comedy with its humorous dialogues and character interactions.
Both of these series contain exorcism of spirits/phantoms. Both of them contain priestesses in miko outfits. Some religious influences are also present such as poetic mantras for exorcism of the spirits/phantoms.
The main character is also contracted to help the other main character. In Noragami, Yukine, being a dead wandering spirit, is contracted to be a shinki and help Yato by serving him and make him a better God. In Tokyo Ravens, Harutora is contracted to be a shikigami of his childhood friend, Natsume, and help her achieve her goal of becoming a professional Onmyouji.
noragami and zombie loan are pretty similar. When I was watching noragami it reminded me of zombie loan a lot.
-they get jobs were they have to slay things
-they get paid after the job
-both are comedy
-have a bit of romance in it
-they have a girl who meets them accidently
-zombie loan is a bit more gory
-noragami is focused on gods and goddess of japan
-zombie loan has to do with zombies
overall both of the series are enjoyable and and I highly recomend them.
Both anime are supernatural with other beings than human.
Both anime have one female lead and two males
Both anime could be dark at times but is usually comedy
Each anime basically have similar vibe and you will enjoy the other!
Kannagi and Noragami deal with Gods that inhabit in a modern world.
The God from both series possesses a mischievous personality but deep down does care about others. Nonetheless, they cause mischief among their communities. Throughout both series, we learn more about their character as they take on task/missions with their own accords. There is a decent amount of comedy, drama, and emotional appeal to both series.
"Just like Mushishi but with more action!" That's what I thought after a few episodes.
Both anime are dealing with a beings from a different world that blends with our reality and affects people.
The main character gets rid of a beings called Phantoms that cause problems to people the same way as Mushi do and Ginko takes care of them in Mushishi.
Both anime are about creatures that affects the people. Mushishi is a more serious show with a dark tone, Noragami has more action, more humor and has vivid colors. Death also plays a role in both Noragami and Mushishi.
God exists in this world. We don't know whether it is true or not.
Both are theme about Japanese gods. Light Yagami want to become god of a new world. Yato is god but NORAGAMI.
It's not just that. There are human and god's coexistence. When you watch both of them, you will know.
DN's case is Shinigami. Many kinds of it. Noragami also have a lot of gods. Good or Demon side. Definition of God is various.
Both plot itself is rather dark. DN has deeply thought-provoking. Noragami is still simple and brighter.
In addition to that, Noragami is action version of DN. Animation is prodigious as same as DN.
Voice acting also gorgeous. Especially Noragami. Probably you've heard of almost voice actors.
Both character development is great. And many charming and solid characters. I also like L, Ryuk, Misa, Yukine, Hiyori etc.
Maybe I told you many times about this, DN is not for everyone. Style is violent and atrocity.
On the other hand, Noragami is liked by everyone. You'll love this show if you liked DN's theme. read more
Both revolve around the main characters trying to achieve their goal, and have similar elements like phantoms and demons. Kuroshitsuji is filled with much more gore than Noragami, but both can have their dark moments. Both are entertaining and intriguing series, and I highly recommend both of them. They both have action with comedy mixed in, making for two amazing animes. I love both of them, and I think anyone will like these.
The romance can be somewhat similar to Noragami's since both protagonists are surrounded by mystical creatures and the female character develops feeling for the male protagonist.
The environment is also very similar (Traditional Japanese references such as festivals, spiritual life, etc).
These shows are really similar. Both have this setup between Humans and Gods/Youkai that are trying to coexist with each other and live in peace. Both of them also have this "Group" that are in-charge of Taking Care or Exterminating the Demons/Spirits etc. They also have this Main Character who are somehow different than the rest. In Yozakura it's Hime, while in Noragami it's Hiyori. And they both have this "Guardian" who takes care of their Supernatural Problems. Both are also Shounen and Have a big dousage of Comedy, along with a really amazing OST. So i really Recommend both if you like this kind of Anime :). read more
Both have sorts of Gods that have to destroy the evil
Both have evil spirits that try to get human souls
Both have some sort of stain when "darkness" touches it
However, noragami has a different atmosphere than ghost...Noragami is funnier while ghosts is more dramatic
Protagonists in the show are living a normal teenage life when suddenly they are involved with supernatural stuff and magic.
The shows are involved in gods and religions, the female protagonist is both shows wasn't very fond of the male leads in the first place, through adventures they slowly develop feelings towards the male lead.
( In Campione romance is part of the plot while Noragami it is just a hint of romance. )
This is a weird pairing, but they both show characters with a sudden weakening characteristics. They are also deeply rooted in finding evil that grows in you and destroying it. Both anime also have characters who are trying to gain a higher standing among their own, and both focus on the worlds of gods.
Both animes deal with paranormal gods and spirits who implicate themselves with humans their dynamics with them.
Gugure is more light hearted and is a fun slice of life watch, whilst Noragami is also great, like Gugure but more mature and with a continuing plot - very intriguing one at that.
Noragami and Gugure both have a host of colorful characters that certainly add to the shows' fascinating lore.
I think both shows have a similar supernatural concept. I just watched five episodes of Yuu Yuu Hakusho and i think it's very similar to Noragami. Iki Hiyori's soul is apart from her body while she is slept and Urameshi Yusuke while he got an accident (Actually he is death)...
Like Noragami, Charlotte features characters with special abilities. In Noragami the characters are gods and phantoms, the characters in Charlotte are more like superheroes. But both series have a serious storyline with very comedic situations mixed in. Both are blends of drama and comedy.
As a big fan of Noragami, throughout watching Magi I couldn't help but notice the similarities between them. They don't share a similar story or setting, but the animation style, humor, combat and feel is very much the same. If you really liked the feel that Noragami or Magi gave, I highly recommend checking the other one out.
Phantoms are very popular in the field of anime nowadays. Last season, we watched how Yato, Hiyori and Yukine fought the Phantoms in the anime, "Noragami Aragoto". This season, another action-packed and interesting anime will display how teamwork and friendship able to annihilate the Phantoms that cause chaos in the world.
In Ling Qi there is the head of a known exorcist family and in Noragami there is a not so well known god. These two won't work alone and will solve all the problems and fights alone, because they work with a spirit they have chosen. In Ling Qi the spirit is despite his age almost as immature as the young spirit in Noragami. Both anime deals between all the tasks and fighting scenes also about the relationship between those two, the spirit and exorcist/god.
The economy in Noragami and DanMachi (Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomearu no Wa Machigatteriu Darou Ka) is quite similar in that the Gods from both shows have "teams" or "familias" in which people pray to and fight for them.
In both of them, the main character meets a deity/mermaid while on the edge of dying and hilarity ensues. Noragami is little darker in comparison to Seto No Hanayome, however both of them have their fun filled moments and the anime art style.
Noragami also relies on fantasy a lot and has a good amount of action. There is a whole lot of material from the first episode to make you laugh your heart out.
I know these shows are extremely different, but please hear this out first.
Both of these were animated by Studio Bones which is a great studio that also produced Fullmetal Alchemist and Boku no Hero Academia. They are great at animation, so Noragami will have that. They all have great opening themes and music, and they all have great casts of characters that are funny, quirky, and original. There are huge differences in terms of actual storyline, but I will argue that they both fall into the action/shounen genre, so give it a chance!
Similar themes revolving around acknowledgment dictating existence and memory loss threatening the relationship between the MC and their object of affection. Seishun is a little more mature and romance-centric, while Noragami has a strong fantasy element and incorporates the romance a little more subtly.
Both are amazing Animes worth binging.
While the plots are pretty different, Glenn and Yato are practically identical, having remarkably similar personalities, as well as similar pasts.
-Both have rude/lazy elements to personality
-Both also act rather playful, but have a serious side to them
-Both are incredibly skilled when serious side comes out
-Both have dark past that one wouldn't expect from first meeting them
-Both even look alike, when Yato has his hair in a ponytail.
Honestly my immediate thought watching Rokudenashi Majutsu Koushi to Akashic Records was "Oh my god this guy is literally Yato." If you like this type of character, definitely watch Noragami.
I don't know why, but everyone person that I know that watched ouran loved noragami. The show has some really good comedy and great characters. It also has some tragedy and romance (not too much but it's alright) I would try it!
If you're interested of soul traveling, dimensional entities, shamans and priest. you're gonna hooked by these two series. they have an interesting story. in noragami they focus on supernatural action while in ghost hound, they focus on dimensional traveling and spirits. enjoy!
Both anime have some funny moments that give comic relief to the action, and they also both have a main male character that has 'special' powers; also, both main characters have a male and a female sidekick who are badass. They also have to fight similar creatures and the fighting style is also very similar. However, if you don't like shounen ai suggestive themes then Monochrome Factor isn't for you ^_^
Various moments of pure amusement, really funny scenes, and epic battles are the main similarities between Noragami and Angel Beats.
It combines comedy with drama and mystery.
In Noragami, the characters who are living an afterlife (just as on Angel Beats) and fight ghosts which haunt the city and corrupt souls.
Yato is a silly version of Yuri, who wants to keep peace and fight the evil, besides his bad past.
Some characters can't remember anything from the time they were alive, which is relatable with Angel Beats
AnY and Noragami don't have much in common, but I think you might enjoy one if you liked the other.
They both have a plethora of interesting and well-developed characters, an interesting plot (which is not overthrown by romance), and supernatural beings.
Besides, the dynamics Hiyori/Yato/Yukine and Yona/Hak/dragons are really funny to watch : both are about people who thought they were normal discovering how large is the world.
Most important, they gave me the same vibe of enjoyment ; if you don't care about an anime being shojo/shonen, go for it !
Do you know the pain of turning your dream into reality? If you just want to earn money and become famous, but you aren't yet at that point yet... Even though you have that nice dream of have a lot of money, you just have to deal with other people, things and problems in the meanwhile, not really achieving your dream...
In Occultic;Nine and in Noragami there is this male main character, with black hair and the dream of making money and maybe becoming famous.
Gamon is a 17-years-old boy, who runs a blog about occultic events. But he isn't really interested in those occultic events, they are just so popular that by dealing with those topics in his blog, he might (and he also tries) get more views and also earn money. He wants to make tons of money!
Yato is a not well known god, who does all kind of delivery things and helps people. He charges just 5 yen, but this doesn't mean that he doesn't want to be known and famous. One of his dream is to build a own shrine.
Both series involve a protagonist who is trying to escape their dark past as someone who killed people for a living. Both protagonists also befriend a young teenager/child who has the ability to turn into a weapon. They have similar personalities and even have the same English voice actor. Both series are able to blend comedy with a more serious tone.
They also both have a tough guy character who smokes heavily and wears a pink apron sometimes.
The only reason why I say it's similar is because of the character dynamics between Satoru and Airi feel much the same as Yato and Hiyori's relationship. Other than that, one's a on-off serious fantasy, one's a supernatural mystery show.
Both involve around folklore and supernatural beings. In fact, the supernatural aspect is smoothly and naturally incorporated into the show.
There are humorous contents found in monogatari second season and noragami. monogatari series second season has more sarcastic and witty dialogue while Noragami depends more on gags.
Both involve around folklore and supernatural beings. In fact, the supernatural aspect is smoothly and naturally incorporated into the show.
There are humorous contents found in nisemonogatari and noragami. nisemonogatari has more sarcastic and witty dialogue while Noragami depends more on gags.
*They both have spirits that can transform into weapon (Seirei/Shinki).
*They both have "forsaken" spirit (Regalia/Nora)
*Noragami is Shounen/Comedy, Seirei Tsukai is Ecchi/Comedy.
*Noragami is more Japan oriented (Japan gods etc), Seirei Tsukai is generic.
Both have miyuki sawashiro as a blondie, takahiro sakurai as a white haired opponent, awesome ops. Both anime have urban settings and neon colors. Each touches upon the source of human morality, one from science and the other the spirit. (Noragami has significantly more gag scenes though.)
Both have supernatural elements with a boy/girl team trying defeat evil
Both have a lot of action although Strike the Blood has more gore
Similar feel overall, and both have light-hearted comedy moments
Demons and spirits. Both anime focuses on evil spirits. In Noragami, the evil spirits are known as "Phantoms" while in Venus Versus Virus, the evil spirits are known as "Virus". The quote "smells nice" was used in Noragami when one of the phantom communicates, especially in Venus Versus Virus when Sumire was in her berserker mode.
The difference between Noragami & Venus Versus Virus is that the plot in Noragami is organized better than compared to Venus Versus Virus, especially when it comes to the animation. The animation in Noragami looks more pleasing to the eye than compared to Venus Versus Virus.
While they consist of different form of storytelling, Noragami and Jigoku Shoujo carries a distinctive way of dealing with tasks/grudges. The main protagonist contrasts in personalities but always tries to get the job done in their way.
As their genre implies, both series has supernatural elements that are considered abnormal in the world of the living. Among these supernatural elements involves spirits, apparitions, and otherworldly phenomenons. Various themes are explored throughout both series including anger, regret, jealousy, hatred, identity, and bullying.
Jigoku Shoujo (Hell Girl) has a much more serious atmosphere while Noragami adapts a more lighthearted tone. They are both also well known for their exquisite OST. read more
Both are supernatural and both have a romantic relationship development. Both shows try to answer what makes someone human and both shows have strong character development.
Satsuriku no Tenshi has more blood and violence though Noragami has some sensitive scenes too.
The comedy and how the main character acts some times is similar. Also, they are both great. They are both fantasy-ish. However, No Game No Life is set in another world based more on playing strategy games while Noragami has its fantasy set in the real world and fight monsters or other gods. Both main characters of both worlds are clever and fight with resolve. Also, both animes have multiple gods in them.
Both have demons, not fully alive-but not dead either characters, a guy looking like kid, who is not what he seems like.
Similar sense of humour.
If you enjoyed one, I'm sure you will like the other one.
Similarities: Both contain neat sword-play and similar rap/autotune-like music. Both focus on a well written story and intriguing plot mechanics.
Differences: Katanagatari has a more elegant, drawn-out story-line. Noragami is shorter and darker.
Noragami and RDG are similar with the supernatural genre mixed with some fantasy. Noragami is blatently dealing with demi gods and goddesses, whereas RDG is dealing with acient dieties and spirits through possession. Both are very reminiscent of each other.
Lets say I just had a similar feeling while watching both anime
Both have humour and a something dark in it, though zettai karen is a bit darker
Both main characters have special powers
Both have someone who is new to the situation and doesn't except it easily (Noragami - Yukine, Zettai - Andy)
And both are just awesome
Both anime have supernatural non human characters in both urban/fantazy settings. Their styles are similar - with figting action and comedy+ drama. Though Noragami is a short series, it resembles Nurarihyon no Mago, just characters have kami's (gods) powers.
Both are about Ayakashi (supernatural monsters)
Both have link to traditional Japanese culture (gods, tales etc.)
Both have underlying metaphors/themes for real life problems/situations
Mononoke has unique/rare art style
Noragami focussed more on combat/comedy
Mononoke focussed more on mystery/horror
If you liked the dark & mysterious Ayakashi in Noragami, and you like horror stories, Mononoke will be a fun ride. (For some art style may need some getting used to)
If you liked the dark & creepy Ayakashi in Mononoke, and you like action/comedy stories, Noragami will be an enjoyable ride. (Animation & audio are high quality with great music used throughout)
Although these two shows have many differences, the main characters and their character development make them similar. Yato and Keita have both flaws and initially are not taken seriously and not treated with respect by their peers, but they both have an interesting background and redeeming qualities that make them likeable, and those at the end also earn the trust and respect of others. Also the two shows are both about minor gods and supernatural powers.
But beware of the different genre: Noragami is an action shounen anime, while Inukami! is a comedy with much perverseness and some ecchiness, so perhaps one or the other is not suited to you depending on your preferences. read more
Teenage boy introduces teenage girl into a new type of lifestyle. In Lucy's case she is introduced to Fairytail and in Hiyori's case she is introduced to world filled with gods, and phantoms. Both pairs ultimately form a strong friendship and have a hint of possible romance. Noragami and Fairytail are both great anime's featuring interesting character and are both packed with comedy.
-Both have a male lead character with special powers and bright blue eyes
-Both male leads are considered outcasts of their kind
-The male lead is powerful, can be scary and has a dark or sad past.
-But the male lead still has a kind and silly side
-Both male leads have a younger brother sort of character that they feel protective over
-The female leads both butt heads with the male lead, but still values their friendship
-Both settings have elements of traditional Japanese homes, temples and traditions, along with more modern elements of Japanese culture.
==However i would recommend watching Noragami if you have already seen Kaze no Stigma..but if you have already seen Noragami do not bother with Kaze no Stigma since the storyline was never completed for Kaze No Stigma== read more
Although Ao Haru Ride is not supernatural, there are similarities. Such as:
Both main characters get closer in each episode.
Boy MC cares for the girl MC in their own way.
Girls personalities are quite similar.
Cute moments :3
Similar action comedy concept, and also have similar style with Gintama. And then the main protagonist, Yato also has similar background and personality like Gintoki. Also both of Yato and Gintoki are swordsmen.
-Both have main female character are same. Personality wise.
-Hiyori turned into half-spirit while Sankarea's main female character turned into a zombie.
-Hiyori grew a tail while Rea's eyes turn red.
-Both have a supernatural and romance genre.
-Main male characters are almost the same.
-Both animes have 12 episodes.
I'm not going to say that it's that "similar," but both of main characters Kobato and Yato have to help people in oder to achieve their dreams. Both have fantasy and comedy, but the difference is that Noragami is more focused on action while Kobato is more focused on romance.
While Noragami is a bit darker in nature, both share a supernatural element of a human girl getting involved with the world of supernatural beings, demons, spirits etc. There are hints of romance, but the main focus in both are the adventures between the human and supernatural beings.
Both share a similar premise: a girl is on the verge of death, two boys try to help her. The three main characters in each show create a family of sorts. Supernatural elements and godly figures also play a role in both shows.
Both series deal with a fairly ordinary person (Hiyori and Kyon) who ends dealing with an irresponsible, slightly crazy, god (Haruhi and Yato). In both cass the other characters are mostly also extraordinary beings.
Although Noragami is slightly more serious, both series contain large amouts of slapstick comedy mixed in with some more intense moments. The tone is quite different, but I sincerly recommend watching both.
