Both series plot includes a group of individuals that have their conciousness/body swaped. Kokoro Connect Is a rather more dramatic series that revolves around relationships and the "Painful scars hidden within their hearts." Both contain comedy but Kokoro connect is more dramatic based. If you enjoyed Kokoro You will enjoy Yamada. If you've Just finished Yamada and want something in similar taste and plot Kokoro Is you go to anime.
- Both shows include as the main plot (Only on the first episodes) a Switching body phenomenon.
- In both shows the main characters are in the same school club.
- Similar Supernatural genre
- Kokoro Connect: Drama / Yamada-kun: Comedy
Okay so these shows are only really similar in the body switching aspect.
Kokoro Connect is more dramatic and focuses on the personal relationships between a group of friends. It's a drama with comedy on the side. Yamada-kun is more of just a comedy show with plot on the side. Also it's worth mentioning that they both are based heavily on the supernatural and phenomenons that occur.
I really enjoyed both series but Kokoro Connect for the plot, Yamada-kun for the comedy.
Both deal with teenagers in a club in high school that deal with supernatural abilities. In Yamada's case, the high school club is centres around finding people with supernatural abilies, with some of the members having supernatural abilities. However, in Kokoro Connect the characters don't do anything in their stupid damn club (sure, the club in Yamada-kun was also pointless with the characters mucking around but at least that club had an objective!) until some supernatural stuff suddenly punches them in their stupid faces. Both of these anime flip flop through many different supernatural abilities but with body swapping being the first supernatural ability the characters encounter and the main attraction. Both anime also have romance as one of the main elements. In Kokoro Connect the anime takes a lot more of a dramatic route (MELODRAMIC -_-), while in Yamada-kun it takes more of a comedic route. Sure, there is drama in Yamada but there's still a lot of comedic moments. And you won't see as much melodrama in there as Kokoro Connect! That's for sure. Yamada-kun and Kokoro Connect do have lots in common and when watching Yamada-kun I couldn't help but get traumatising flashbacks to the time I had to suffer through Kokoro Connect.  read more
These animes are similar in the romance department and both focus on a certain club in which supernatural things happen. Both include the shift of one person into another person's body, and vice versa, as well as many other abnormal transactions that occur throughout the animes. While Yamada-kun is more light-hearted and comical, Kokoro Connect can be more dramatic and serious at times. Nevertheless I highly recommend either one of these great animes!
Even though the story of animes are very different from each other while watching Yamada and seven witches I remembered Kokoro connect
- both animes are about couple of friends (which are in school clubs)
- both anime have body swapping,telekinesis and other magic stuff (in Yamada and seven witches there are witches while in Kokoro connect there is different situation)
- both anime have some little dirty moments
- both anime have comedy/romance moments (more romance in Yamada)
I always think of this anime as the serious version of Yamada-kun and the seven witches, probably because the first phenomenon was body-switching.
This anime shares similar characteristics with Yamada-kun and the seven witches, but the character relationships and the plot are more complicated, dark and sinister. I think this is like the better version of the playful latter.
Kokoro Connect and Yamada-kun share a lot of similarities. Both use a high school club setting as the premise of the story. They also share a lot of the same themes, such as body-switching, etc. The only major difference is that the characters in Kokoro Connect undergo much more substantial development than Yamada-kun.
Both shows involve members of a high school club involved in some supernatural phenomenon, plus there is romance in both of them. The characters are around the same age, only kokoro connect is more dramatic than Yamada and Yamada is more comedy-focused. The length is also similar.
Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo and Kokoro Connect is pretty similar during their first arc. Both dealing with body switching phenomena. After that, they kind of branch out to deal with respective problems. There's also these relationship between group of friends that are explored to some extent in Yamada-kun and to a deep extent in Kokoro Connect. If you're looking for conclusive ship, both series got them so, that's a plus
With body-swapping abilities, a school club and romance, both shows are similar in terms of the setting. Kokoro Connect has a heavier drama feel to it while Yamada-kun is more comedic and funny. Both shows have a supernatural element behind the switching of the bodies.
Both deal with trying to help or deal with other ability users that have caused havoc or have their own problems. It has the same premise of possessing an ability that only lasts for their entirety of their high school lives.
There are many funny moments as well as many sad stories of each featured character in both animes.
Main characters have unique powers only they can use. Those who have such powers are gathered in one place. Similar powers such as switching bodies, turning invisible and more. Both have comedy, romance and drama. One deals with witches and the other something other worldly.
girls around the mc , mc who how looks a bad person in the beggining and then gets a better person, powers that came out in a teenager age and disapear some years later when they grow in adults , if you like one you will like the other.
Charlotte and Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo (or Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches) focus towards a group of students who have their own supernatural abilities such as teleporting, invisibility, etc. Some characters even have a depressing backstory or life in general yet they keep their heads held high
The group of friends or acquaintances set a goal to find other people with supernatural abilities like them to accomplish something important using teamwork
Yu's possession ability is somewhat similar to Yamada's ability of switching bodies bodies with people, . Characters have the potential gaining powers similar to Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo where becoming a witch, allowing them to gain a power.
I initially went into both of these shows thinking they would be generic high school harems with some supernatural shenanigans thrown in, but ended up being surprised by how well these shows executed their premises with engaging interactions and solid characterizations through supernatural phenomena. While Yamada-kun does have the harem tag, it's really as much of a harem as Bunny Girl Senpai is with the protagonists only being interested in the female leads, who are quick to see through any misunderstandings which could potentially bog down the plot.
The Themes, Plot, And World Line Is Similar As A Male Character Is The One Who Solves The Problems (Which Are Somewhat Supernatural Phenomenon) Faced By The Female Characters And Most Of Them Later Fall For Him.
Both series' characters experience mysterious supernatural phenomena in a high school setting. Both male protagonists are at first loners, but they grow to support their friends and peers as the shows unravel the explanation behind their puzzling conditions.
Yamada-kun & TWGOK share similar plotline of accidentally dealing with supernaturals and the mission of "conquering" girls by kissing them which indirectly adds to a hidden harem. MC gets dragged from their comfort zone and by the end has their life changed by interaction with others. Only difference is the MC is either an otaku vs delinquent.
Both involve the main character going around a school setting searching for girls who have a tie to the supernatural. In The World God Only Knows, it involves "conquering" girls in order to get the bad presence out of them. In Yamada and the 7 Witches, they are trying to find the witches in the school. Both involve the kissing of the found girls to resolve plot. All in all, I did enjoy both shows and I definitely recommend them.
Instead of simply pointing out similarities, I'll put it in a different way.
Yamada-kun to Nananin no Majo and Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai form a new genre themselves. We're yet to see more like this, but somehow the idea both of them have is appealing. Approaching to the Harem genre in such a distinct way, without having a girl falling in love in each episode because of the MC's generosity, the lead ends up being "forced" to get the girl of the episode. That is, if it's only one episode for that girl. Unfortunately Yamada-kun is apparenty getting only one season(I think) but if you enjoyed Kami Nomi or is enjoying Yamada-kun, there is literally no reason to skip the other. read more
Romantic comedies, with the same 'let's grab dem chicks' rythm to them. Kami nomi requires some effort to get through all of the seasons, while Yamada-kun has a simpler and tighter narrative where everything is pretty much resolved by the end.
Likeable casts with, uh, quite unusual leads. Drama/silliness are balanced well, and both have solid scores to back them up. Good stuff.
Both main character gets involved with 7 people which changes his daily life and on the other hand changes also the 7 people's personality or daily routines.
Both anime shows harem but more especially in Trinity Seven, while in Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo it shows romance.
Both are comedies.
In both series we can see these similarities:
- The protagonist discovers he has some power or ability, which forces him to interact with 7 girls with incredible abilities like him.
- Both are harem and ecchi, where they keep some mystery of the relation of these girls with our protagonist.
-Both anime have seven main female characters (just look the anime's title).
-Both seven main female characters have unique ability and personality.
-Both anime have same genre, especially harem, comedy, supernatural, romance, school, and shounen.
At first glance, these shows don't seem particularly similar, but when I was watching Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches, I kept being reminded of Oregairu. I later realized that they were similar in that they both focus on a high school club where a group of people attempt to help other people in the school with their problems (the Service Club in Oregairu obviously did this, and the research on the school's witches done by the Supernatural Studies Club in Yamada-kun led to the club's members helping the witches they found sort out their problems). Overall, while the focus of the shows is different, the similarities between them made me feel like the shows went hand in hand (also, for the record, I really liked both shows).  read more
Both anime doesn't seems similar at first but change as the story developed. And these are what i found similar.
-The male protagonist was a loner. Except in oregairu, the protagonist become a loner by self choices while in Yamada-kun because he is a delinquent.
-The female protagonist was avoided by society because being a perfect student.
-There's unusual club activity
-The male protagonist was underestimated but turns out to be reliable.
Also, the school atmosphere felt similar. An elite school where intelligence is everything.
Both Main Characters (Hachiman and Yamada) are similar in the sense that they have similar personalities. Hachiman has his edgy and loner moments, while Yamada is pretty much a delinquent. They both have a mini Harem, with Hachiman having Yukino, Yuigahama, Iroha, etc. whilst Yamada has all the witches.
These anime both have a lot to do with the concept of the kiss, and the main premise being based around it (getting powers from kissing, having to kiss because it's a death note spoof).
Both also have very good comedic aspects, with a variety of female characters that coordinate well with the male MC.
These two anime's comedy is top-notch. The situations that the characters get into are very enjoyable and interesting. It keeps you wanting more.
Both MCs of the shows are delinquents and are badasses!
The girls also have different colored hair so they're very easy to like :D
So both of these involve a teen boy getting dragged into a fantasy-like world which involves kissing some girls. Yamada has to kiss people for certain reasons that are explained in the anime and then Shido kisses the spirit girls to lock away their spirit powers. So in a way they are quite similar, both are about one boy and a group of girls pretty much with some supporting characters here and there. They are both heavily comedy with some romance. So I think if you enjoyed one you should like the other.
Plot involves Male MC dealing with girls having supernatural powers, and by getting them to kiss, either seals power shut or reveals what power the girl has. Only difference is genre-based on magic vs "other-worldly" / (I wouldn't describe Tohka as an alien?) and Male MC behavior on delinquent vs average Joe.
These two anime are really similar. Both have male leads who can save girls with kisses. In Date A Live, the girls are spirits whereas in Yamada-kun the girls are witches. Both have harem and ecchi components. Date A Live, however, has a lot more actions and fighting. Girls in both anime have their back-story.
The two really remind me of one another. The characters and their dynamics are a notch different with a different premise, but the style of entertainment with the humor and interesting character reactions provide the same sort of effect for me. Not to say that their quality is on par (I'll just let the individual decide that), only that how they provided entertainment to me (comedy, character drama, and such) were on very similar wavelengths.
Both anime have a club about supernatural. Also both anime have a quiet and bookworm character. They do weird stuff with there club members. Thy both have a character that acts different from the others. One of them is special than all of them. Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo is comdey like Suzumuyi Haruhi no Yuuutsu. I hope you agree with me.
If you like magic and witches, you can also try Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo.
One of the main characters in Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo is also a witch which is a top student, but the use of magic is more subtle in Yamada-kun.
The main male characters of those series suddenly find themselves surrounded by witches. In both cases it gives the viewers a chance to laugh a lot.
While Yamada Ryuu has some supernatural (or magical) powers of his own and can be considered equal to the witches, Takamiya Honoka has no such powers at all and his life is on the mercy of the witches.
These magical high school dramas revolve around protagonists who are initially rejected by their peers but find acceptance as the people around them get to know them better. Kotoura is outcast due to her psychic powers while Yamada is outcast because he's a delinquent but they both find the love of their life after some intense drama.
I truly enjoy the romance genre and I love when a show breaks out of the common mold and adds a fun supernatural element to the romance.
Midori no Hibi and Yamada-Kun are similar because they both contain a male lead that is a "tough guy" who has a rarely seen soft side and a shy girl who is brought together with the tough guy through a Supernatural way.
I love both of these shows because they show a great connection between the two leads and it is really nice seeing their romances blossom in a comedic and Supernatural way.
Both female main characters don't have many friends and the main character has an interest in the other. Both are also comedies where Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo seems to have more of a story-line with the whole body switching theme.
Both are romcom that's full of trainwrecks and weirdos.
Some point the plot will be an one-sided romance then immediately ignored/destroyed by the other side.
In Gekkan Shoujo the one in love is Chiyo while Yamada is the one in this anime.
Light hearted tracks(slow tempo,not bassy) are used in both anime.
Let's just think for a while, what can this titles similar in?
First of all they both about supernatural things. Maybe AnoHana is more drammatic and Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo is more comedy anime but they are both fantastic, emotional stories. Both are about a group of friends that go through many situations.
Two shows with a focus on supernatural and the personal relationships between a group of friends.
In both titles the MC started his school career with a bad reputation (one for fighting, the other for the looks). But they join a school club full of beautiful ladies and so the adventure begins.
Boku wa.. more focussed on getting friends and adventures with the growing group of friends
Yamada.. more focussed on... well the MC wanted to make friends to begin with... but now (with as little as spoilers I can tell) he wanted to prevent someone for returning to her original self (closed, friendless, forced to smile).
Both ani's I recommend to watch if you like comedy, harem and a little twist of seriousness ;) read more
- Yamada-kun takes off on the premise of gender bender whereas SKET dance has 1 such episode
- Shiraishi with Yamada's personality is reminiscent of Himeko at times
- Student council as a major player in both series
- Both are funny as hell
- Club formed by 3 people initially
-Both take place in a high school, centering around a certain school club, and has supernatural elements (chuunibyou powers in Inou Battle, body swapping in Yamada-kun)
-Both are mostly comedic with a bit of romance and a touch of drama
-Hatoko and Urara share the same voice actress
MC also has alot of interaction with 7 specific girls, also in a school setting and it just has a very similar feeling. The MC's are also pretty much the same but I must say Yamada is alot more reckless
-Multiple individuals brought together for a certain circumstance
-Great character growth for all main characters
-Off-beat main character
-Final part of the group is an outsider or is in someway against the main group for majority of series
Yamada kun and Grisaia both utilize a badass mc that goes around solving problems left and right, all while being involving with both the characters and the environment.
yamada kun is more easy going/less intense action wise and overall whilst grisaia is really dark and explosive with action.
both have a harem but yamada is more magic/happy/school romance while grisaia uses more realistic themes for its harem.
both have mc's that can get the job done, something a lot of animes nowadays are lacking in.
if youre looking for a show to let off the steam of something serious, go for yamada kun, if youre looking for something more serious and actiony, go for grisaia read more
Both are romantic comedies where the MC is a delinquent. Also, the two of them have a cast composed of interesting characters that disrupt what could be a normal school life: in the case of Yamada-kun to 7-nin no majo because of the presence of supernatural elements, while in School Rumble is due to the absurd and comic situations in which the charcaters involve themselves.
