Both these serialisations follow male otaku who are "employed" to use their specialised knowledge to help others. They mostly help female characters, which subsequently result in a harem.

Both series feature a heavy focus on dating sims particularly represented by the protagonists.

Both's MCs are burdened with a demon girl. Both will lose their "heads" if they don't do their new job. The difference is that one loses his actual head, while another loses a more important head.

Both series contain a complicated supernatural stories many female characters and unusual protagonists who are shockingly calm about everything abnormal happening around them. 
reportRecommended by Noitrus
Both about conquering female targets. Monogatari is more mature while Kami has demons and goddesses.

An anti-social shut-in is given the mission to investigate certain girls in order to get close to them. Both protagonists are smart high school students who are good at analyzing situations and turning them in their favor through various ways of manipulation. Differences: The World Only God Knows is about the supernatural, has more girls, and takes routes similar to those found in games and visual novels. Doubt is about a realistic setting, has only a few girls, and takes a route that focuses on observation and psychology.

For each arc, the male protagonist romances a different girl.

These two serialisations feature male otaku who openly prefer 2D girls than real ones. Despite this, they still catch the attention of many female schoolmates.

The plot-line is somehow similar. Although Kami nomi does have a much broader line of series. Those who enjoyed Hentai Ouji for its comedic accent and its art are bound to enjoy KamiNomi as well.

For both series, relationships becomes a pivotal part of their story development. The main male protagonist is an otaku with anti-social behavior. However, they get acquainted with girls that makes an impact in his life. Romance is present in both series as we see character relationships. Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai is also well known for its supernatural gimmicks while 3D Kanojo relies more on realistic drama. 
reportRecommended by Stark700
The main characters are trying to catch corrupted souls. Kami nomi is more about romance and more developed in the storyline, and Black Rock Shooter is more mysterious.

Similar type of plot design. Both stories are about a Highschool boy solving the problems of another individual in order to capture "something".

Both have the protagonist that forced to be responsible to devil. at first the story was to be get out from involved with devil ( kaminomi was getting girls, Beelzebub was search for someone strong ! ) then the story became more interesting. and both have a girl to support the protagonist.

While Saekano is a novel series and KamiNomi is a manga, both works are heavily involved with the concept of galgame, in some ways or other. In Saekano, MC and his friends formed a doujin group with the goal of making a legitimate visual novel that fans will enjoy. In KamiNomi, MC is tasked by a supernatural entity to capture the hearts of various girls just like in galgame. In both works, MCs are also avid gamers.

At their cores, Keima and Jang Sung Gi couldn't be more different; Keima just generally dislikes dealing with people, but Sung Gi is afraid. Still, both series are focused on wooing women without treating the entire group of women as cardboard or second-class citizens, like many other romance manga can do. Both series also end up showing the protagonists changing themselves for the better. Here are a few differences Skill of Lure has. -Skill of Lure has ecchi, but (so far) it is for occasional comedic effect -Skill of Lure has more male characters -At the time of recommendation, Skill of Lure isn't a harem -Skill of Lure has  read more

well, both of them have the same setting: a demonic/angelic being will have a contract with the protagonist(whitch he/she can't remember signing one) , the contract consists on completing tasks that involve love. 
reportRecommended by Ex-Machina
Nisekoi and TWGOK are fairly light-hearted harem-style manga, with both stories taking place in contemporary Japanese school settings. Both utilise back-story to drive the romance sub-plots, with Nisekoi adopting a fated-love scenario and TWGOK basing it's various character plots on a more supernatural stage. The humour and slice-of-life elements also make both series easy to consume in either small quantities, or rush through in one long burst.

While I was reading this manga, I found a couple of similarities. Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai (A.K.A) The World God Only Knows: -has an otherworldly being helping him -saves girls from evil spirit by making them fall in love with him -girls forget about what happened after it's solved -sorta harem-like Faerie's Landing: -has an otherworldly being helping him -when he looks at girls with boyfriends, they fall in love, saves them from evil affinity -erases their memories after -sorta harem like And for both mangas it basically just rinse and repeat, although Faerie's Landing has more action incorporated than The World God Only Knows, and TWGOK has more harem attributes than Faerie's Landing.

Progresses in harem series, you don't see that very often. Make possible by 2 very likable MC who committed to what they do. Also author don't afraid to drop bombs on us

Both series are about a genius who doesn't really know/care much about human emotions/feelings that tries to capture/conquer a target (a girl) by gaining their affection, when conquered they got an overly dramatic reward from the target 
reportRecommended by Ahodesuga
Both series have a similar premise: the protagonist is a loner with obscure interests who is called a weird nickname by the rest of the class; "Picasso" in Genkaku and "Otamegane" in KamiNomi. They encounter a supernatural girl and are then told to help people who are suffering from terrible burdens in their heart. If they don't, they will die. They end up using their "weird" interests in order to save people's hearts and become better people themselves.

Both have the male lead being visited by a girl from a different world, staying at their house and together they battle evil residents from the world girl lead came from(without killing them), the parent figures in both series own a cafe and that are only the most obvious similarities. There are even more similarities as both series progress, though I can't write those here without spoiling. Even though leads in both stories have very different personalities and Kami Nomi has much more comedy in it (especially in the start) I really recommend that you read both, if you liked one of them.

Both series are about an unsociable guy coming in contact with a magical being then being threatened with their life to get a life or a girl to love them  
reportRecommended by iloveanime317
Both mangas revolve around a student that can see a cute girl and gets involved in a cupid-like trama. While in kami nomi he is a genius gamer, in hatsukoi the prota is a lazy energy saver; both of them just want to get back to their previous life. Personally I prefer the comedy in hatsukoi, and a big difference is that in kami nomi the romance is more an harem while in hatsukoi is a match making to different couples.

The main characters from both series aren't popular and neither do they have a lot of real friends. What they do have though is a love for the virtual world, in particular games and the Internet. Their experience with real life people of the opposite sex often lands them into compromising positions. There a connection between their real life and fictional experiences. And with those connections brings out comedy, drama, and moments that will get people talking.

Both series start out with a lover-troubled protagonist and by the help of a magical being, the Main Character gets to fall in love with any girl he wants. Only problem is, magic can work in mysterious ways and don't always go the way you plan them to. Both series are also love comedies so they work together even more.

Both Keima and Louis are incredibly intelligent, sharp-tongued weirdoes who are almost always on top of the situation. This also makes the amusingly arrogant, yet they have a surprising tender side to them. They also like to abuse their side kicks. Both stories are affectionate parodies of Dating Sims and Fairy Tales respectively. 
reportRecommended by AshokaTheGreat
Both are a romance or die story, and they both have a style of the guy being dragged into a situation.

Both Stories its evolve a lot of girls but The World God Only Knows its evolves on Keima capturing the love of a girl's heart and To Love Ru Darkness its evolves on Momo trying to get all the girl to be with Yuuki Rito and be his slave (I Think) 
reportRecommended by AkatsukiUlquiora
Although Ichigo 100% presents itself as a serious love story with some humour and numerous harem & ecchi moments thrown into the mix, it can get a bit tedious and repetitive. If you're looking for a parody of the romance genre or are just looking for a breath of fresh air to your usual manga reading, try Kami nomi! I guarantee you won't be disappointed by this unconventional manga.

These mangas both have a main characters that is in love in the 2D world, but through some sort of complication they begin to interact with 3D women. In the manga World God Only Knows it's because of a demon contract that Keima is forced to make women fall in love with him, but in Tonari no Kashiwagi-san one of the main characters, Yuuto, learns of a secret that Kotone had been keeping to herself, thus beginning the rocky relationship between the two. I highly recommend the World God Only Knows to anyone who's reading Tonari no Kashiwagi-san since they both give off the same feeling and  read more

In both mangas the guys acquire girls without starting a relationship with them. Golden Boy is about an wandering student, whereas The World God only knows is about how to use Galgame knowledge in Reallife. Both are worth a good light hearted read.

The only things that they have common is that in both the boy goes out with many girls and the boy is pretty weak

In both, the male protagonist becomes binded with the female protagonist. Despite initial concerns, the two work/live together which oftentimes results in another female character falling in love with the male protagonist.

Both Protagonists are only interested in 2D girls but due to circumstances both will only survive by dealing with real Girls.

The main dudes in both help solve the problems of others presented in arc-format. Plus I guess you could mention both are school related comedies with some romance.......but then again isn't everything?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!

Both characters are very good at being antisocial. Keima is the god of capturing 2D girls, and Warau Kanoko-sama is the master of observing others. They are very intelligent and accomplish multiple tasks in very different situations. Even though they are in basically completely opposite genres, each character cannot help but remind you of the other.

Both about a otaku gamer brought into a supernatural situation against his will, one into a romance situation the other into a battle one.

Both are light-hearted and involve romance, being weird and different in their own way. Mysterious Girlfriend X is a romance oddity while The World God Only Knows is more of a comedy with romance elements. Both are a great for a light read for entertainment.

These two manga are very similar in genre and a bit of story line. The protagonists both creates a harem as story progresses. The male protagonist is a very critical thinker that shows up at critical moments.

both have spirits that go into the human world and use humans to hide in, and two people get together to capture the spirits. except The World God Only Knows(kami nomi zo shiru Sekai) is way better in my opinion.
