Meet Normal-kun. Normal-kun is, overall, not stunningly popular. However, due to certain ridiculous circumstances, the world will be in great peril unless he dates a bunch of girls and gets them to fall in love with him. Follow Normal-kun on his occasionally humorous quest to "gotta catch 'em all".

There are several story arcs where a different girl gets her own story with the male lead. It is in an omnibus format, so it's not actually a harem anime. The main difference is that Amagami is more dramatic, and Kaminomi is more comedic.

Both are about a girl who fell from sky to help the protagonist completing a certain missions ordered by god.

Kami nomi and Saekano are shows that feature an otaku protagonist surrounded by a bunch of girls with various interesting personality. What make them stand out is that both are parody in nature, and are fully self-aware of the tropes and cliches in anime and galgame, sometimes going further to make fun of them.

No Game No Life and Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai both feature protagonists who are extremely good at games, although the protagonist of the latter sticks to only visual novels. Particularly if you enjoyed Sora's antics and personality, you'll likely enjoy Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai, since the protagonist, Keima, is similarly overpowered, and as with No Game No Life, it is less interesting to watching whether or not he will win, but more fun to watch HOW he "wins," so to speak. Both shows share a quote that sums them up nicely: "Reality is just a crappy game."

While both of these shows have different storylines, they both feature a clever and somewhat cold protagonist who plans his every move very carefully. Both are very entertaining.

Both are told from male perspective.. Both MCs are loners by choice .. Both have many catchy phrases/ quotable dialogues .. Both have some kind of philosophical/ psychological monologues .. Both MCs are put in a situation where they have to go out of their ways and interact with others

An aloof main lead trying to conquer girls either in the name of life and death, or a mission. Kanojo Flag is a bit darker, but overall they have the same feel plotwise.

Aishen has these felling of be an alternative version of Kaminomi - but NOT a copy or plagiary. There's A LOT of elements in common: From the clunsy and cutie magical entity who puts the main char in this situation to the main character who is not a imbecile like most of main characters whe see in averange animes. So much elements in common that I'll don't even list all of them. But at same, it is NOT the same history. Is not repetitive, are not the same issues, are not the same consequences, is not the same flow. Bassically, it's an anime for who loved Kaminomi and  read more

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.

Same deal, both main characters aren't popular in real life, not a lot of people interested in them. They both in animes play otome games and win other people's hearts; making them fall in love. (both pros) Watashi is a girl version of Kamisama, like one, you'd definately like the other

Both are somewhat similar in that they both deal with demons and contracts. Kuroshitsuji is much darker than Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai but they do both have their share of comedic moments.

The World God Only Knows and Grisaia no Kajitsu are both in the Harem anime genre: multiple girls fall in love with one guy. The first season of Grisaia no Kajitsu and the first two seasons of The World God Only Knows are divided into several arcs, one for each heroine the main protagonist meets. One major trait shared by these two anime that made me really like them both is their amount and quality of character development. Throughout each arc of the two anime, the protagonist and the viewer learn about the heroine’s personal difficulties or a major event that took place in their  read more

Everyone keeps saying Renai Boukun is like Death Note and Mirai Nikki, but I'd say it's much more similar to Kami Nomi. Both are harems, both are somewhat making fun of the genre, and Guri's character from Renai Bakunin is very similar to Elsie from Kami Nomi

-Both character has the same feel -Harem at its best Sekirei tends to side with actions while Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai tends to side with comedy and romance.

Both characters are able to solve problems using logic and reason (though in God only knows its that logic is based on video games) the thought process is the same. Also, the protag.'s Whiny Bitch Meter is very low in both anime so they are enjoyable to watch and don't make you want to murder the guy.

The companion supervisor girl which is also a common feature here [to some extent], and the socially-rejected main protagonist as they fight their point of view and prove to the world is that anime is the purest thing here. The Rate of enjoyment is very high and a good laugh to both of the show is guaranteed.

They are both about bad spirits which are attracted to negative energy that need to be gotten rid of in a supernatural sense, and in both series' they reside inside people. However, Kami nomi is more light-hearted and cute, whereas Madoka is darker and a lot 'deeper'.

Main characters are otaku and focusing on galge. Both titles are comedies about being a fanatic of games (and also anime in lucky star). Also have some occasional but imressive action scenes.

Hm, let's see in a few words they're: upbeat and fun. But I shall go on to say that both shows tend to share a similar attitude in which characters handle situations: often somewhat brash or straightforward *cough* teenagers *cough*. Both shows can seem a little uneven sometimes in terms of enjoyment, but there are worthy moments to be had in each episode, regardless. Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai, of course, is about girls, girls, girls, and as for Toradora...well, the girls (Taiga, Minori, and Ami) pretty much take the show. Both shows have super shiny, slick quality in art and  read more

1. Same type of exaggerated, stereotypical, ironic and satirical kind of comedy. 2. Same settings -- it both take place in a private school. (Though it is not directly stated or emphasized in The World God Only Knows.) 3. Both series stereotypes love, romance and the kind of characters. 4. One of the main characters is very intellectual, manipulative and has that sexy nerd feel. 5. One of the main character is surrounded by the opposite sex.

Both series have Multiple Heroines, but Kami nomi is a little more open in the romance aspect. Comedy is a strong point in both series, and there are sci fi elements and lots of stories in kami nomi.The plot gets more and more rich and interesting as the seasons advance, in my opinion is a great option if you are looking for something similar to Monogatari.

Vandread is in space, but both involve aliens and a genki/air-head character. Vandread has that same harem type feel, and both have the saving the "world" plot. Neither anime are a serious type; they're more of a laid back watch. Each are relying on a guy who is perfect for getting the job done.

Sense of humor is very similar; both main chars are aliened (somehow); Ellie and Kanako are both crazy and very funny, both lives in their own world of imagination. Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai and Maria+Holic gave me the same sensation while watching.

Both Shiori and Ritsu have very similar personalities. Shiori is a little more extreme when it comes to reading though. Both have romance, however Kami nomi is more of a Harem than a romance.

Saiki In other hand, has a "god-like" power). -Both have Supernatural elements. The difference is Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai focused on romance and the Harem Story of Keima, while Saiki Kusuo no Ψ-nan as the title says, focused on how disasterous Saiki's life was..

Both are about collecting souls. Boy and a girl team-up. Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai concentrates more on romance, while Soul eater is more action.

These are really different but they have one major similarity. In Shugo Chara people create those X eggs because they can't do their dreams or something like that, while in Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai, people get loose souls because of something emotional inside them too. And it's up to the main characters to solve that.

Dealing with virtual crisis and reality is never easy. In both of these series, the protagonist deals with 2D and 3D issues that arises in their life. Well, more or less.

I was very surprised to find that these weren't already recommended for each other. I can say with confidence that if you like one, you'll most likely like the other. both deal with gaming turning into something more real. although the game subjects are different. The art is really similar in both.They are so similar on atmosphere, that you must watch both. I MUST stress on thing though, if you are into SAO for the fighting, you may not like the other, for it has much less action. it has more ROMANCE.

Well first of all , the main character is a high school boy with many girls around them. It involves demons, however the main character in "Kami nomi zo shiru sekai" is a human. The girls around them are really cute and sweet. Ichiban involves more action and fights of course but the theme is pretty similar.
