There is a similar heartwarming feel to these two slice of life animes. They have a similar premise of a girl beginning to work at an inn, who befriends many of her coworkers. There is a showing of the happiness derived through hard work, and what it means to mature as a person, while still being somewhat of a kid at heart. The sort of animes that teach you to enjoy the little things in life. They may have somewhat similar stories, but each provides it's own unique experience that will have you reflecting upon certain aspects of your own life. Konohana  read more

The setting is similar, dealing with gods and traditional Japanese mythology. The overall feel is very similar, very light hearted with little life lessons along the way. The show is verrry moe, with tons of cute girls doing cute things. There's a similar soft yuri vibe in both series, with hinted romances.. Though Konohana leans a bit more towards it. Even the main characters are similar, somewhat ditzy but pure of heart and making friends with everyone. If you like one, you'll definitely like the other!

Both works have a pretty similar main cast with the generic pink-haired MC, her classic tsundere best friend and "pair" of girls that strongly resemble or imply the yuri pairing of tomboy and girly girl which are all together live in an old Japanese building. The main difference is that Konohana has a profound, philosophical content and openly shoujo ai, while Comic Girls more carefree and uses the latter more for jokes and fanservice.

Supernatural girls come to earth and interact with humans in profound and touching ways.

Both series have a new hire as the main character getting to know the (all-female) workplace and the relationships that are already established in it, as well as establishing relationships of her own (with clear yuri undertones). The main difference is that New Game! is in a realistic setting while Konohana Kitan is a fantasy with fox girls.

These two anime have pretty deep meanings behind them. Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou/Girls Last Tour focuses more on the dark side of humanity, most of the time being the effects of wars to us humans, while Konohana Kitan focus more time in telling us more about the beauty in humanity. Both anime can be pretty cute and emotional at times. The art and animation in both series is also top-notch.

Both are interesting stories of often demi-human supernatural creatures or species with veneers of romance and art. Naturally Kamisama Hajimemashita is more arc-drived and also het, while Konohana Kitan is more slice of life with development, but very lesbian.

People liken Konohana Kitan to Urara Meirochou, but the characters have much more similar personalities to that of the Aria cast, such as Yuzu's curious airhead nature akin to Akari's. Similar to Konohana Kitan, it is very episodic in nature, and revolves around the protagonist's discovery of the world they live in and the people in it, as well as getting to know the people working in the same profession - though the setting here is in a replica of Venice, recreated on the terraformed planet Mars in the future. On top of all that, the anime boasts an amazingly entrancing soundtrack that  read more

Monster girl slice of life.

They both are very shinto themed and focus on a girl's experiences through interacting with various kami and similar, while growing and learning more about the individuals, the world, and herself.

Kemomimi lovers have come to the right place! Konohana Kitan and Nekogami Yaoyorozu are both cute and (sometimes) relaxing anime which are futhermore filled with elements from Japanese folklore such as the baku. Konohana Kitan is about youko / foxgirls, while Nekogami has like the name implies, nekomata / catgirls and has doggirls etc. as well. Also expect plenty of derp faces

Cute animal girls doing cute things with their friends. Both series have supernatural overtones, and lead characters trying to find their place in their worlds.

Both series are about characters going about their business and living their lives, and a world that is slowly transforming and fading away. Both series contemplate the meaning of life, and reflect upon the ends of eras.

Both anime are about a young girl with traumatic past who starts to work in an Onsen hotel. Each new guest brings their story, and the kindness and hospitality of the team (and the young MC in particular) help the guest. Those stories are often fairly sad and dark. In the overarching plot, MC grows so they double as Bildungsroman. In both anime, the supernatural plays a role. In Konohana Kitan, the whole hotel is for Youkai and all employees are kemono, in Wakaokami the girl befriends with two ghosts and a demon living in the hotel. The major difference is target group.

Cute cats doing cute catty things. Essentially, both delivers the same premise where apparently there is a parallel universe where cat-girls exists which do service for humans, one with the bathhouse while the other is with the café. Additionally, both shows have shoujo-ai undertones to it so for anyone who enjoys that kind of stuff will may find these entertaining as well.

Both deal with moving on from the afterlife and presents death in similar ways. Though Angel Beats! is more serious and action oriented and Konohana Kitan is much more slice of life and lighthearted.  
report Recommended by BiggestAdvocado
Both of the main characters are very similar in that they're very clumsy and not good at their job, but they try very hard and have a good attitude. But most importantly is that both shows feature a group of quirky and cute characters with their own unique backstories. Both shows also have a mysterious element in their settings which gives a level of intrigue beyond a typical CGDCT show.

Both animes have cute characters girls and a lot of moment that can make jump your heart

Plot summary - "Animal girls (foxes in Konohana Kitan and bears in Yuri Kuma Arashi) who fall in love". As much as Yurikuma has cute and funny moments, mostly being dramatical and pretentiously psychological show, Konohana, being more of a cute and bright type of show, has its dramatical moments that can make you cry at times. Also there's some similar development in both of main couples: one of the girls is cold firstly, but later one, becomes nicer to another (even though in Yurikuma it happens for another reason).

To be honest I didn't enjoy Aoi Hana as much as Konohana Kitan, but I can't deny the fact that atmosphere is similar, so maybe these shows will be equally enjoyable for someone. Similarities: - check out genres - same slow-paced atmosphere Differences: - school setting vs. supernatural setting where characters are working in a hotel

Looking for an unusual life. Let's say the life of people and other creatures from a fantasy world that only borrows elements from our world. Well then you are looking for one of those two anime series. The main difference between the two is the world presented. Konohana Kitan presents a world inspired by Japanese folklore, meanwhile Hakumei to Mikochi presents a world of small creatures, such as 9 centimeters tall humans.

Relatively cute and innocent GL anime that don't focus on sex/fanservice. If you're looking for cute fluffy yuri with lots of moe these two are your best bets. If you like one you may like the other, though Konohana has a more relaxed atmosphere and focuses more on relationships between characters while Yuru Yuri is energetic/upbeat and focuses more on comedy.

A healing slice-of-life anime with cute characters and interpersonal relationships. 
report Recommended by ninryu
While a completely different premise, these shows share a strong bond in a peculiar serenity and beauty that comes with centering around gods, spirits, and myths in simple yet touching stories. Both shows are also quite episodic, solving one prevailing myth per episode, while Konohana Kitan is a bit stronger on continuity and overarking storylines but Mushishi touches on some more sincere topics. The major difference, apart from the premise, is the general vibe and feel - Konohana Kitan takes a more cheerful approach while Mushishi can sometimes get quite gloomy.

Only based off of the first few episodes, but these two anime's give me the same kind of vibe. They are both based around an inn who takes care of godlike or mythical creatures. There are some differences like Konohana Kitan is all girls and they are taking care of the maintenance of the inn, which Kakuriyo doesn't have the MC doing that. And Konohana seems a little more light-hearted and fun while teaching some morals/lessons in a comedic or sweet way which I have not seen exactly that it Kakuriyo. Granted it is only the like second or third episode. Overall I felt a similarity  read more

Their biggest similarity is, that they're both about girls in bathhouses, that take care of spirits and other otherworldly beings. Plus they both a have themes of growing and becoming a better person. And they both have beautiful animation. "Spirited Away" is a movie and the protagonist is a girl, who suddenly finds herself stuck in this world. The movie is more about coming of age and Chihiro growing up. Plus it does have that memorable Ghibli style. "Konohana Kitan" meanwhile deals is a series and while it has a constant theme of our main-character growing more as a person (or foxgirl), many of the episodes take  read more
