I wasn't too sure what to expect from this series as the conecpt seemed a little unusual for an anime - the story not being about angels or gods dealing with humans, but rather the son of god learning what it means to be human.
The show is well written and moves along at a nice pace. The story itself is quite intruiging, and the main characters develop quite well throughout the show.I especially enjoyed the fact that the show evolved to include darker themes towards the end
The animation is of a very high standard, and the opening music is a
very catchy rock/pop tune.
Overall this is a nice series that develops the characters well. It gets a little dark towards the end of the series, but this is done very effectively.
This is an enjoyable show to watch and I would recommend this to fans of Chrno Crusade, Ah! Megami-sama, Pita-ten, etc.
Summary of Story:
Samatarou is not just an average high-school boy, the truth is that he is the son of a god, his mother is a goddess and his sisters are candidates to become goddesses. They are living in the human world, because they want their boy learn about the human customs and the habits of the creatures that they are protecting, so that in this way Samatarou will become a better god. Tenko is a angel assigned to look after Samatarou. She's born the same day, same year as Samatarou and have been close friends ever since. Life seems
normal but things start to change with the appearance of a transfer student named Kumiko. Samatarou falls in love with her and from now on, things will be a lot more different for him. His decision of making her fall in love with him without using his powers will put him in trouble.
The story goes BEYOND that right there. That's only the first few episodes. Its gets REALLY complicated thereafter.
I think this may be the only factor I didn't like out of the entire series. I mean, the art was cute and all, but the animation kinda failed in some parts. There were awkward faces that looked really awful and the movements seemed strange at times. 7/10

I simply ADORED the music to this show. The BGM was amazing, most of it, not ALL, but most of it fit to where it was needed, and where it wasn't needed. I loved the op and ed songs, they fit the theme of the show really well. :D 10/10
I don't understand why this was called a harem. I mean, most of the girls where his sisters and one was even a minor. And then there were only two girls after his heart. Oh well. Now, the story is what kept me on my seat. The first arc (The one about him trying to win a girls heart with out his powers) was cute and all, but the third one and final one is the best. I loved the plot twists, the darkening of the characters and all the deception. The addition of new characters and love makes it a wonderful watch. 10/10
Ok. Ive seen SO many people hating on Samatarou (The main guy). Yes. He may have been SLIGHTLY dumb and slow, but I found him overly adorable. He was innocent in everything, just stupid. Tenko, his guardian angel was awesome too. She may have been slightly whiny, but that helped Sama-Chan realize a few important things. Now, the weird characters were his family. God, and God's wife had ISSUES BEYOND ISSUES. Holy crap. I mean srsly, his mother had a very odd sense of logic. His elder sister was strange as well, but his younger sister was the cool one. And then, you've got Ai-Chan and Lulu, Kumiko and Fumiko, & Suguru and Fuu. Kumiko and Fumiko, I think, are the only characters I hate from the series. Other than that, I loved all the characters~10/10
If your looking for a comical yet romantic, then turns dark and exciting anime, Kamisama Kazoku is the one for you. Im sure you'll enjoy every bit of it! I know I did! 8D 10/10
Kamisama Kaoku is about the God's family who lives on earth and the life ofGod's son who falls in love with a girl from his high school. And the twists that come about as he realises his feelings which he has for his life-long friend and guardian angel.
I think the story is unique, it is definitely your fantasy-romance kind of anime. There was a good deal of romance in the anime and the drama was present as wellso if you are a romance-drama fan you might like it. However, the story does not have an outlying plot that encompasses the whole anime so there
are like small arcs of 2-3 episodes, only the romance is continuous throughout the story. Which i partly because it was so short i guess, had it been longer a better storyline could have been developed, thus this anime had a lot of potential.
The style of drawing is different from your more popular anime style and its quite refreshing for a change. I found it quite suited for this anime, since it was a romantic comedy it was good in depicting comical scenes.
The sound was so-so ,not that there was anything outstanding about it at all no insert songa either so can't say the studio did their best with the music.
The characters were not very deep, but they still portrayed the typical high school lovelife behaviour to a comical degree at points. It is because of the lack of seriousness in the romance that i did not find it so captivating. There are only a few character in the anime and the supporting characters are just for comic relief with no significant roles.
I enjoyed the comedy in the anime, as well as the romance but as i said earlier its not to the degree that i truly enjoy. However, the story line is quite different from your typical highschool love affair because of the dabble of fantasy in it so it makes quite an ok anime.
If your up for a comedy and not so serious romance then this anime is for you, it had good potential but it was not built upon so for a 13 ep anime its quite good, so if your up for a short break from the serious tones of some horror or psychological anime then give this one a try.
I wasn't expecting much from this series but what I got really surprised me. This seems like the complete opposite of something I would enjoy but it turned out to be very well thought out, cute and tender.
Story 8 It does have a bit of a juvenile feel to it, but thats what an anime like this is supposed to be like. This series did not disappoint and did not lead off with a cliff hanger or unanswered questions. Though I would love to see a second season, this stands up on it's own just fine.
Art-9 Not the typical style I usually like,
the colors here are bright and unrealistic, but in a world like this it really works. Opening animation was great and while at the begining I was turned off to the character design as the series progressed I was able to just view them as another cute quirk of this anime.
Sound- Op was great, ending was interesting. Voice acting was top notch. The character Meme has to be one of my favorite characters of all time, due mostly to her voice actor. The voices fit seamlessly into the animation. The male side character's voice is a tad annoying, but he is playing an annoying side character so even that worked.
Characters-9 My only gripe was with the male lead, his character came off as incredibly selfish and you spent most of the anime thinking what a brat he was, or how could someone do that. While that may not have been the creators intention it didn't hinder the show too much, and by the end you grew to care so much about the other characters you didn't really notice.
Tenko- Was amazing, the personality, the character design the voice acting fit together perfectly. I love that every time she gets flustered a little poof of halo smoke pops out of her head along with a little fart type noise.
Meme- Just might be one of my favorite characters of all time.
Misa- Proved herself to be quite essential to the plot and a valuable member of the family, I would be interested to learn more about her character since none of her personal life ever really gets discussed.
Another great concept this anime had was the little people talking... thing.. Hard to describe but sort of like telekinesis, just with little minature pupets. Only the members of the family (and Tenko) have them, and it really brought alot to the show.
With shows like this it can get a little crazy sometimes, random abilities constantly being introduced, a new concept in every episode etc. But that wasn't the case here, the writters clearly had a vision of what was, and what wasn't possible even in their world of the gods and they didn't stray much from the first episode, which makes it much more believable. (Not that any of it is actually believable, but it wasn't one of the series where you roll your eyes at every episode)
Enjoyment-8 it was rare that I sat at the end of my seat after an episode, but while watching them I certainly enjoyed it. I'm surprised this isn't a much more popular anime. A few times the characters seemed to be traveling down their road and you're waiting to see where they end up, when boom random sub plot kicks in, the sub plots weren't bad and while for the most part I can see why they were included, weren't really needed.
Overall 8- As far as cutsie animes go, this is one of the best I've seen. I highly recommend this to fans of the lighter side of anime.
As per usual, I’m not going to bother reviewing Kamisama Kazoku like everyone else. Rating anime by categorical aspects is boring – rather, I like reviewing anime based on their perceived category. This anime is a romantic comedy and I was looking for a light-hearted romance when I came across it.
Now, most anime centered around romance, whether it’s good or bad, usually falls into a flurry of clichéd events, situations and dialogue that’s sometimes so automatic, you can see it coming when you read the episode title. However, surprisingly, Kamisama didn’t fall into many of those traps and, to be frank, much of the material
was completely original and the characters refused to fall into certain traps that most characters of their type fall into.
The main characters for instance, Tenko and Samatarou, are as original as you can get. Samatarou loves Tenko, but not in that way, but she has feelings for him, but refuses to admit it could ever happen. However, what these characters don’t do is fall in line with the same warped sense of thought most typical characters in these kinds of anime tend to do. They say what actual people might think and do what actual people might do. So, in the end, when everything falls into place, the romance is natural and feel-good, but most of all, it makes sense.
Now, take that with a grain of salt, because the story itself is wild. Based around the everyday life of the son of a “god” who is living among humans in order to learn more about them all while being “protected” by his personal angel, it doesn’t take long for the viewer to realize those aspects fade really quick into obscurity and it just becomes a normal romantic comedy with a few fantastical throw-ins. In fact, Tenko doesn’t once actually protect Samatarou from any kind of danger in this anime… not once. But after a while, you forget that, because she’s adorable and truly cares for him. What I’m trying to get at is that if you take this anime seriously, you might be in for disappointment, but if you treat it lightly, this anime is a lot of fun! The best aspect of it are the characters. From cute Meme and Misa, Samatarou’s goddess sisters, to a brilliantly and energetically voiced Venus (his mother), they display an entire heart-felt range of emotions, complimented by a rare art style that isn’t afraid to take a few chances. Their faces are comical and cute in a rough way and yet their hands are so well drawn, they’re good enough for the most top-notch anime out there.
I tend to rate romance based on a number of personal factors. I demand that a happy-ending romance end with a kiss, I want the characters to be able to touch each other and hold each other close when they want to convey feelings, I want to see true happiness and passion offset drama if there’s a lot of it and I want connection that goes way beyond awkward, pre-teen nuances. If you are going to do romance, do it right, you know what I mean? Otherwise, it’s just slice of life and that really is for the kiddies. Well, Kamisama Kazoku accomplished a lot of what I love, and while I won’t give anything away, I don’t think it’s wrong to give away the fact that the viewer looking for a good little romance won’t get left with a bad taste in his mouth at the end (like a lot of anime tends to do.) If you like brilliant romance anime like Kimikiss Pure Rouge, Nodame Cantabile and True Tears, you might just like this. It’s fun to say the least and that says a lot when you consider how much crap there is out there.
I watched this show while at the same time mocking it... there were just too many scenes that were pathetically done. This show is about the son of god whom is living in the human world to learn more about them so that one day he'll become the perfect god with the understanding of human beings, thus training. He appears to be 15, so of course; he's going to a high school. He has a companion, an angel who helps/guides him while he's training to become this perfect god. The angel appears to be madly in love with the son of god. Kamiyama, the son
of god, instead ignores these oblivious love warnings by the angel. The story follows arcs, different story's every 2-3 episodes, that consist of the angel and Kamiyama doing ridiculous acts together.
Story: I thought the story had a unique feel to it; never had I seen such a story like this. Unfortunately, I have many times seen horrible set ups to story's that had potential; this show is one of them. The story set up was excessively corny, and like I had stated; I mocked the show while watching it due to it's unprogressive feel.
Art: The art was decent, enough for me to tolerate. The shows art appeared to me as a 2003 anime with good quality. The art definitely didn't compare to some other anime's that were produced in 2006. But as I stated, decent.
Sound: For the most part, the music was dreadful. A riven prying it's way into hell. There was only one piece of music/sound that I did particularly enjoy, which constituted this "high" score of 5. I'm not sure what it's called, but it appeared in the later episodes. The clip of music was in the "episode recap" right before the actual show began.
Character: We have a blue haired dumb ass, a pink haired girl who resembles a devil more than anyone in the show, a mother with a sexual attraction to her son, and a god who can't do shit. You'd think being the son of god you'd have at least a small amount of magical power... no, of course not. Kamiyama appears to react to the exact same alarming sequences a normal human would... Kamiyama is a human. The whole entire show was compiled of idiotic powerless labels.
Enjoyment: Just because I'm giving the show a "6" doesn't mean that it was good, at all. The anime really only amused me by comedy, as every scene in this show needed someone laughing at it. Very little was put into this show... and even though it made me laugh, it made me laugh for the wrong reasons. I give enjoyment "6" because the anime made me laugh.
Overall: This show was quite mediocre but managed to not completely fail due to it being so mediocre that it was funny. I wouldn't recommend this anime to somebody who has a similar taste in anime with me. I typically enjoy serious anime's over comedy's. This anime... wasn't serious in the least bit. But if you like comedy's, if you like anime's without structured plots, then go crazy with Kamisame Kazoku.
Kamisama Kazoku is a funny, and enjoyable romantic comedy series. The story of the series is very light and unique, but like many 13 episode long series, there are some loose ends to the plotline. The story focuses on Samatarou (god candidate) and Tenko (his guardian angel), and their experiences living in the human world. However, Samatarou's meddling family creates many amusing problems for him as he wishes to experience everything on his own.
As a series, the quality of the artwork in the anime is good and pretty simplistic, and the voices are very good and include many notable seiyuus.
However, the characters are the real entertainment of the series; only a few of the main characters show real development through the series while the other characters are groomed for comic relief. Therefore, I wouldn't so much classify this series as too much of a drama but more as a supernatural romantic comedy series.
This series was very enjoyable, and unfortunately, it seems to be a frequently overlooked anime. There are many elements that make this anime very refreshing for a fan of romantic comedy series, such as a unique, well paced storyline and interesting, unpredictable characters.
Well this anime has only a few episodes, but it provides. The humor in here was okay, mostly around the center of the series. Other than that, that's it. Not much closure on the romance and the ending is slightly flawed (basically my main complaint to all amine: "the ending was not good enough!'').
Basically 7.5 - 8/10, it has a pretty good pace and leaves you with some laughs. Kamisama Kazoku is something you would watch if you just got into anime or you're really bored.
Samatarou is the son of a god and a goddess and his sisters are candidates for goddesses. They are living in the human world, because they want Samatarou learn the customs and habits of the creatures they protect, so that it becomes a God better, more just and wise
Tenko is an angel in charge of observing Samatarou. She and Samatarou born on the same day and year and have since become good friends. Life flowed normally until Samatarou falls for a new student named Kumiko. The confusion is armed when he decides to make her fall for him ... without using his powers ...
comedy ... so can summarize the anime .. The principle was not expecting anything more in the anime, but since the first chapter changed my mind and I kept watching this, and so Kamisama Kazoku became a good series despite the simplicity and appearance
Revolves around the character Samatarou Kamiyama who went to live with humans to become like a god best ... Simple, but that each chapter develops without ado and the characters are well done and fulfilling their roles and leaves to be desired at no point taking into account the simplicity
Well done and smooth as suggested by the anime characters with traits ... well done and simple scenario that does not disturb anything in the anime as much of the story unfolds in the school where Samantarou and Tenko
The soundtrack fits the anime ... nothing exceptional and the opening and closing as the series are simple and you should not notice much and forget about it easily
Characters very well done and make a fun anime only
The main Samantarou Tenko and are well wrapped when it comes to love, and to help them to family but there is always complicating their lives, which makes the series fun to watch
The fun that makes a good series to watch with the family rather normal Samantarou and confusion that they get themselves in school are also direct the anime becomes fun
Putting it all together Kamisama Kazoku becomes a pleasant and enjoyable series to watch from the beginning to the end of the series ... But even being just one among many, the anime is fairly good and quite funny. Great for those who like a romantic comedy and do not mind knowing the end from the first episode.
We all take things for granted, be it the fact that we live in a comfortable, large house, or that we have caring relatives and friends who all care very much about us. We never really stop to look at the bigger picture, seeing just how much is behind our lives and how much we are supported even without realizing it. Kamisama Kazoku (God/Divine Family) is a story about... well, family, as the name suggests. It raises questions like what really makes a family, and how important family actually is. But it's not only about that, it's also explores relationships and maturity, and how they
go hand-in-hand as you come of age. The anime tells this tale of a divine family, living among humans so that their children will learn what humans are like and how they interact and help one another, so that they in turn will become great gods themselves one day. The family's only son, Samatarou, was granted a guardian angel at birth, who would stay by his side until the day that he would finally become independent. This guardian angel, Tenko, becomes much like a twin sister to Samatarou as they grow up, so much that he begins to despise her constant nagging tendencies in his high school days. However, as they encounter strange, unexpected experiences and situations together, their relationship changes, and Samatarou learns to both not only regret taking things for granted, but also see things in a new light like he'd never done before.
Story (8/10): Kamisama Kazoku is split up into three story arcs, all of which highlight a different obstacle that our cast finds themselves in. These situations are mysterious and supernatural, and require a degree of maturity and acceptance to overcome. These story arcs are cohesively tied together and frequently reference each other, enhancing the plot as a whole. My gripe about the way they set this up is that some of these story arcs have strange loopholes and unexplained plot conveniences, however these are infrequent and the majority end with a very sensible conclusion despite the situation being fairly mysterious and confusing at first glance. The last story arc becomes a little dark, especially towards the end, but in my opinion it worked great, and definitely gave these characters their final push towards becoming better people. The story overall is charming and is especially enjoyable with such a colorful cast of characters.
Art (8/10): I am biased with it comes to this anime's animation and artstyle. To most, it may seem overly simplistic and outdated, but I personally love it. The character design, particularly with our two main characters, is really appealing and charming and I really liked it. Again, this is very opinionated, as the animation is still quite old (a decade old, in fact!) obviously making it inferior to anime these days. However, the gag/comedic moments are all animated well for it's time and just make this anime's atmosphere a lot lighter.
Sound (7/10): The sound in this show was good. The sound effects themselves were fairly subpar, but they managed to do their job decently which is really all that matters. The voice acting is excellent, no complaints with that. The opening and ending themes are both great, especially the opening theme! It's super catching and groovy, and wouldn't mind listening to it again at all.
Character (9/10): I absolutely loved the characters in this show. Samatarou's family are all hilarious and charming, especially his mom and older sister. They never felt stale or uninspired to me, and they were caring and thoughtful at times when it really mattered. Samatarou at first is selfish, distant, and mean to his family members, including his guardian angel Tenko, but he grows fundamentally as a person throughout the series and learns to see that these people are more than just cardboard cutouts; they have feelings and they genuinely care about him, something which he's taken for granted for many years. Tenko is also a great character in my opinion, she's caring but also a little tsundere (they both are as a matter of fact) but at no point is it over the top. She herself matures and learns to accept that even though they aren't officially related to you, people can be your family as long as they care about you.
Enjoyment (9/10): I really liked this anime. It was charming, funny, dramatic, and romantic and times when it needed to be and had a brilliant conclusion that gave everyone a happy ending and resolved the love troubles and doubts between the two main characters. The anime may be confusing at times, since the story arcs that make it up are generally pretty random and strange to begin with, but as they start to make sense, they become very enjoyable and a blast to watch through. The cast of characters was fairly small, but they all played their part well and aided the story in their own way.
Overall (9/10): If you have the time and you're a fan of comedy, romance, family chemistry/relationships, character development, drama, supernatural themes, and just plain charm, you should definitely check out Kamisama Kazoku. It was captivating until the very end, where I believe it had it's strongest point, and then concluded wonderfully. At times it may be a little frustrating or confusing, but the payoff is definitely worth it. And, although this may be a bit of a spoiler, it's one of the few anime I watched where the childhood friend actually wins! =O (you should probably watch this for that reason alone)
It took me a really long time to sit down and actually get into watching this show. It feels a bit like a traditional gag/romance anime, with the caveat being something pretty typical: a focus on angels and gods. What's different about it, and thus attention-capturing, is that the son of god has to come down on earth and learn to appreciate humanity, as a bit of a trial.
The love-triangle is a bit hard to get into, as it feels stilted and strained. The main character can also be quite frustrating! However, after several years of having seen only the first few episodes, I powered
through the problems and really enjoyed the ending of this show.
The cliches are going to be tiresome. The characters may get on your nerves at times. Still, if you enjoy the humor of the show, it *does* improve after the first few episodes. There are a few little arcs that break up the monotony, and even a couple cool plot twists that make this show worth the watch. Give it a shot if you like the whole romance schtick and simple entertainment.
I Love The Anime
If In Clay From Outer Cover and the scorenya Not convincing But when I try to watch Justru unexpected.
Character design, cutting each scene and placing sounds to the atmosphere that is given is not perfect
But more value than this anime is a rather unique storyline where serious scenes are mixed with comedy atmosphere.
This anime tells a family of gods who are trying to live in the human world
And among the members of the god's family there was an angel who loved one of the family members there, knowing that this angel was from birth to adulthood raised there and the family member
who loved by this angel is a boy who is the same age as the malakat.
Because i will not spoiler
This anime excitement will increase as it enters the story of the story
