Both series are lightly comedic romances (with harem elements) in which a fairly ordinary college student is suddenly visited by a beautiful yamato nadeshiko type woman who becomes his romantic partner.
These are really close in the story line the main couple meet in the beginning and then the rest of the story is about how they they live. Both shows have a bunch of other girls that come in and mess up the happy relationship the main couple have. And lastly they are both heart warming and funny.
Ah! My Goddess is mostly about the pure relationship between Belldandy and Keichii. You will find a similar boy meets girl, girl and boy fall in love, girl and boy go through obstacles plot line in Ai yori Aoshi
These anime is similar in many ways, they are both slice of life series and have the same romantic tones to it. The main woman character are also very similar in character in which they are loving, caring, and gentle in nature. I don't want to classify them as nadeshiko because it would be a disservice to Belldandy and Aoi. I think chances are of you like one you will like the other
There are many similarities:
Both girls meet boys in beginning, live with them and fall in love.
Later other girls join in the picture but are not necessarily big competitors for protagonists' affections.
Both girls are Yamato Nadeshiko and are great homemakers.
They both can be pretty badass and defend their love in trying circumstances.
Both are romantic, harem comedies
The main guy in both series is "forced" to stay with a girl. These girls aren't exactly human, either. A mermaid in Seto no Hanayome, and a goddess in Ah! My Goddess. And both of these girls have a "rival": Lunar, and Sayoko. The girls are really powerful too. They are good at cooking, and singing. In both cases, both Sun and Belldandy tends to beat their rivals in competitions.
Both Sora no Otoshimono and Ah! My Goddess have angel looking girls staying over at a boy's house. Their purpose appears to be similar as well, that is, they intend to grant any wish to their owners. I also find the humor somewhat similar in both. AMG however, is more heavy on the drama while SnO is funnier. If you liked one of them be sure to check out the other.
-One boy is the protagonist, he is visited by a Beautiful and perfect woman.
-The Woman falls in love with him
-The sisters of the woman, the friends of the guy and the lovers too, breaks the "precious moment"
-Little mature sexual references.
Very similar set up, Hot girl appears, she has magically powers, they start living with each other. Later other magical girls appear. They have adventures and battle. While the main character (a simple man) and the magical girl have a funny relationship etc.
The beginning of both episodes is basically the same. Both start out with a teen kid that meets a magical girl (or goddess). They get kicked out of their apartment because its "no girls allowed" and are forced to look for a new place to live. The Magic girl (or goddess) in both shows saves the day by using her powers to find a place to live. At the same time the main character starts to show signs of love for the girl. Sekirei also has elements from other popular shows tossed in, for example Fate/Stay Night and Elfen Lied. So the show is not entirely about love and romance, there is action and fighting. read more
The 2 actually have a lot in common - the first episode of Sekirei has the same plot as the first 2 episodes of Ah! My Goddess, Musubi has a very similar personality to Belldandy, both have the main love interest(s) have superpowers, and both have at least some harem elements (Sekirei has more than Ah! My Goddess, obviously), just to name a few things the two have in common.
However, Sekirei has fight scenes, whereas Ah! My Goddess does not; also, it's debatable if Skuld and Urd have feelings for Keiichi, whereas it's obvious that the rest of Minato's Sekirei have feelings for him.
The issues of fate & destiny are strong core elements in both shows, however Ah! My Goddess has much better character development thanks to having 50 episodes, but lacked the clean, if not tragic resolution of AIR, possessing a more positive open-ended ending.
They're both harem with incredibly beautiful girls. Both guys are loserish guys who get a hold of their love interests in interesting ways. Ah! My Goddess has less of a plot than Chobits but both are great fun.
Another example of the magical or mysterious girl concept. Both series deal with 'fish out of water' female protagonists who come across as naive, but in matter of fact are both powerful entities with the immense power to affect massive changes in both of their respective worlds. But despite that both shows spend a lot of time on romantic development between mortal men and these mysterious women who enter their lives and alter them irrevocably with relationships which are far from the conventional they seem to be at first glance. A great example of these deeper implications shared between the two shows is the mortal man paired with an immortal female entity for instance, which is pushed back at by the implication that love can conquer these kinds of differences. This is just one way in which these shows examine the deeper meaning of love that can transcend differences between sentient beings regardless of heritage/origin. read more
Both shows deal with a very serene and joyful heroine surrounded by caring friends. Many episodes in each show are slice of life drama with the protagonists meeting new people and learning more about the world and themselves through these rewarding encounters. Both shows have gradual, but steady and meaningful character growth. And last but not least, the two sweetest & kindest Anime heroines you will ever meet, Akari (ARIA) and Belldandy (Ah! My Goddess), great protagonists!
I both anime there is one boy surrounded by many girls in the same house. both main boys in these series are really unfortunate most of the time, but they make it up with speaking from the heart.
both anime are focusing a lot on comedy with a hint of romance. if you like one of these you'll surely like the other too. :)
Both have the male lead surrounded by beautiful girls who want to be with him. Both try to fight to help the female characters. Male characters are alike in all aspects. The only thing is separate is goddesses and extraterrestrials.
An honest man finds companionship in a supernatural woman. As they get to know one another better, they gradually fall in love.
More importantly, both address that feeling of loneliness and ennui that many young men find themselves struggling with when breaking into the workforce for the first time.
Two series for anyone who has ever thought "If I just had an awesome girlfriend, my life would be totally different..."
One is shojo romance other is shonen but I felt the same watching both. I mean the sensation of platonic love with both sides being afraid of confessions and making first move. These are not dynamic love stories with sudden changes of heart and quarrels but slowpaced natural development of close relationship.
They both feature girls that are naive and wayyyy too nice compared to a normal girl. Both are cute romances that take awhile to play out and feature both characters trying to tell the other how they feel and failing. They have similar tones and audience I think.
Both series have a comedy driven plot starting off with a goddess telling the protagonist they can carry out a single wish. The protagonists then decide to ask the Goddess to stay with them, leaving her in disbelief. Once the goddess joins the protagonist their power is reduced significantly forcing the goddess to adapt to her new environment.
However, whilst in Aa! Megami-sama! the protagonist continuous to live in the same world and the Goddess is please to stay by his side. In contrast in Kono Subarashi the protagonist is taken to an alternate fantasy universe and the goddess considers the protagonist a useless otaku without any talent or ability.
The similarities are:
Both involves a muchacho (male lead) having a realtionship with a hevenly being - even if it's a diety .
Both involves a couple of additional hevenly beings living with the muchacho and giving the poor chico some cabeza del dolor (headaches) along the way.
Both has one member of the household (if you can call it that way) whom the muchacho wouldn't wanna mess with.
What's the diffrences:
The muchacho in AMG is a college student, while in HN the muchahco is still in high school.
One is a full anime with a season 2, while the other is a 4 min omake.
HN is a pure slap stick comedy, while AMG is a combination of varous genre.
And, one is a 3D anime, while the other one is a 2D omake.
Both these series contain the "goddess" theme, becoming one of the major themes. There is envy, jealousy, and later love present in both series as the episodes progresses.
Both series contain supernatural elements as well as mixed in comedy and misunderstandings. Also, expect drama and the "little sister" annoyance that are present who tries to help the main protagonist through his problems. (namely involving love)
Angelic females taking interest in a very plane and boring character. The main difference of the two is that one is more childish while the other holds a mature tone. There is obvious plot differences but for the most part the concepts the same. A Man falls in love with a angel.
The main characters are both loser guys who love bikes who meet beautiful, naive girls who are not from earth. The art style, the kinds of jokes used, and many of the characters are similar. Both main characters also seem to have the same problem with being able to confess their feelings and progress their relationships even though half of the female cast is in love with him.
+ Both have girls appearing out of nowhere and living with the guy.
+ Both girls are not human (video girl and goddess)
+ Both protagonists had an unrequited love.
+ Both protagonists are considered cowards.
- In Vidoe Girl Ai the girl is super noisy but in Aa! Megami-sama she's very quiet.
- Video Girl Ai is Ecchi and has nudity but Aa! Megami-sama is pure.
Both definitely fit the mold of the modern Magical/Mysterious Girl formula created by Urusei Yatsura years ago. Both feature mysterious otherworldly women who come to Earth on a mission and end up falling in love with all the consequences that it entails for their lives and lovers. I think many fans of Hanato Kobato or the Goddess Belldandy will likely find the other appealing, I heartily recommend either to fans of SoL, Romance, or Magical Girl Animes, both also contain elements of Supernatural/Divine drama as well.
In both stories, you have some kind of magical spirits/deities/goddesses hanging around the main protagonist.
Both stories give off harem like vibes or cliches with the thought that there will be a love triangle.
When in the end it ends up showing up as solely being a romance series with humorous supernatural shenanigans.
Mamotte Shugogetten! does not follow as clear on its story I guess unless you plan to read the 11 volume manga series instead of watching the anime adaptation.
Ah! My Goddess! is better in comparison to Mamotte Shugogetten!. So take Mamotte Shugogetten! as the bargain bin version of Ah! My Goddess! Mamotte Shugogetten! is a series that is underrated or obscure for good reasons.
I will say that despite the great dislike people have for the Mamotte Shugogetten! anime I still have a fondness towards it because I know it's not the best series out there but it tries to still have fun with itself. Its fondness can be just as strong as one's fondness towards Ah! My Goddess! read more
A DAILY LIVE OF COLLEGE STUDENT
Romcom anime with college student as MC. Yes, if you look at main story there are big different theme in both anime :
- Aa! Megami-sama! focus on Goddess-Human relantionshp
- Golden time is normal romance anime
But if you look from different perspective, GT & AMS share many similarity
Similar Character :
Female MC (Kouko & Belldandy) really love the male MC (Banri & Keiichi)
They’re doing everything to make male MC happy, even if it means sacrifice their feelings
Same for Male MC, even they look useless, both have high confidence when it comes to Female MC problems.
Similar story :
Focus story on how they balance their daily live as college student and normal couple with problems come one by one to test how strong their love for each other.
The female lead can use magic, it has a lot of funny scenes, the female lead touches many people hearts, it is very clear that the protagonists love each other and overall they have a similar feel to them.
Ah! My Goddess isn't anywhere near as ecchi as Girl's Bravo, but the stories are remarkably similar. The main character is a guy, whose kind of a loser, meets a beautiful magical girl, they start living together, and slowly fall in love. Also, for some reason at the beginning of the series it just starts out with the main character and one girl, but as the series continues the number of girls on the show continues to increase.
Both animes are packed with romance, laughter, and a little bit of sex.
Both of these animes are similiar in a point that parts of them are polar opposites
Ga!?-Main Character is Rude But Has incredible Good luck
Aa!-Main Character is Nice But has incredible Bad Luck
Ga!?-Goddess of Misfortune(technically a poverty god)
Aa!-Goddess of Fortune(well something of that nature)
Aa! is more focused on its romance though while Ga!? is just a Hilarious anime full of Comedy and Tons of references to other multiple anime.
Both AMG and Aria are upbeat slice of life anime that have a very positive outlook and while AMG is a bit more action oriented than the extremely laid back Aria, they are both very sentimental series that never fail to bring a smile to my face.
Okusama wa Mahou Shoujo focuses on the balance of the town where the story has its setting. Ah my goddes focuses on the happiness of Keiichi (the protagonist). However, both anime have simmilar, if not exactly like, protagonists in them. These two anime also share a equal form of passion and feelings between the characters and their surroundings.
There are both very in depth romantic comedies. The main character's (Keiichi and Aono) both meet these women by mistake. Although Ah! My Goddess tends more towards the romance aspect, while Rosario+Vampire is more for a comedic ecchi genre, they are both awesome romantic comedies that I suggest fans of the genre watch.
Hard to explain why they're similar. The stories are quite different.
"Ah! Megami-Sama" is a fantasy 'harem' anime, where beautiful Goddesses (literally) clash into a guy's life, making an amusing chaos out of it.
While "I my me! Strawberry-Eggs" is an, also lighthearted, school series about a man who has to fake being a woman to become a teacher and pay the rent.
But I thought the 'feeling' of the anime were so similar...that you probably couldn't like one, and dislike the other.
Watch a couple of episodes, and you'll probably understand.
Both have incredibly similar structures. Both are stuck with their girls, AMG by choice, Midori no Hibi not by choice. Both have a secondary female character who initially doesn't like them but then does. Both have a very similar sense of humor and plot.
It took a whole for me to come up with the recommendation mostly because I was looking at it from the wrong angle. How "A!MG" and "Inari" (for short) compare well with each other is the interaction of gods with humans. Not just everyday interacts but also falling in love with each other. I won't put any spoilers here because that's what makes "Inari" fun to watch ("A!MG" is a very well known series).
In both series, the humans do get a taste of some of the powers of being a god, go to the plane where the gods live and even get to know other gods.
Whereas "A!MG" manga is about to end, "Inari" manga is still ongoing, unlike the anime. It's still a good watch. read more
Umm.. After watching Ai yori Aoshi ~Enishi~ Miyuki
Somehow, it get a feeling like Ah! My Goddess. ^^
Ai Yori Aoshi Enishi X-mas Special,
Somewhere along the lines..
“If I could spend Christmas with someone this cute..”
“But if we could stay together like this forever..”
Ah! My Goddess,
Famous quote: "I wish for a goddess like you to stay by my side forever".
The plots share a common theme: an average guy is living his life when a supernatural girl moves in with him for certain magical-related reasons. The female leads are both kind, care deeply about the protagonist, and have some naivete. Aa! Megami-sama focuses more on the romantic aspect of this while Sewayaki Kitsune no Senko-san focuses more on the healing and care-taking aspects.
Both invovle non-human girl and human boy trying to live together. There is school invovled in both of them. Ah! my goddess invovles goddesses being around the main character as DearS has aliens around the main character.
