Canine demon boy (Inuyasha/Tomoe) has to partner with a schoolgirl (Kagome/Nanami). Inuyasha is a shounen manga (lots more action) whereas Kamisama is a shoujo manga (lots more romance), but the relationship between the two main characters are very similar.
In these, the story has great resemblances in the plot, even though one is shonen (Inuyasha) and the other is shoujo (KH), for instance, both have:
- Naive human heroine who has a special power and is on highschool and has the ability to travel to past.
- Main hero is a youkai with ears and white hair and at first fights a lot with the heroine but ends up protecting her later.
- The relationship between Tomoe/Nanami and Kagome/Inuyasha is quite similar: it begins in a conflicting way but then it turns into affection.
- spoiler: The hero loved a human girl in his past and wanted to be human to be with her but she died.
- Yukiji (Tomoe´s former lover) resembles Kikyou (Inuyasha´s former lover) in looks and personality.
Personally I like Inuyasha better because it develops the supporting characters more deeply. read more
The relationship between the two main characters from KH (Nanami and Tomoe) reminds me of the relationship from InuYasha (Kagome and InuYasha). Especially at the beginning both Tomoe and InuYasha is a little bit more savage but become more tamed (?!) as the series progress.
Both involve a dog-like human and a human girl. The demon in both series is sort of a tsundere and the girl in both series are strong-willed. The demon in both series loved someone in the way in the past and the girl in both series in the present time is a reincarnation of the demons' past lovers.
there are A LOT of similarities between InuYasha and Kamisama Hajimemashita
- Human girl falls in love with youkai boy
->who feels the same way for her but is still kind of hung up on his ex who may or may not be somehow "connected" to said human girl (can't say any more than that, spoilers lol)
- She gets powers she didn't even know she could have (nanami has "God" powers whereas Kagome is a miko)
- Time Travel (sorta?)
- Love Triangles
- "Should I give up being a youkai so I can be with the human girl I love?"
- LOTS MORE!!!
The major differences is that InuYasha is a shounen and focuses more on the adventure genre (though it has lots of romantic moments too!) while Kamisama Hajimemashita is a shoujo and focuses more on the romance genre. But both of them are equally great!
If you like one, I'm sure you'll also like the other! read more
Both feature a female protag trying to step into their newfound powers in a strange new setting involving unfamiliar creatures and the like. They fall in love with the male lead, who is a powerful demon of some sort with white hair, cute ears, and is kind of a douchebag, AND is getting over a lost lover. KH is, however, much more romance oriented compared to Inuyasha, and it's a good amount shorter. The general mood is very similar and both are simultaneously uplifting and frustrating at times.
The main character becomes homeless and involved with the supernatural world.
Kamisama Hajimemashita is more of a romantic comedy and Fruits Basket falls more into the tragedy genre, but both are very heartwarming.
A story about a young girl whose life changes one day forever after encountering a supernatural being. Sound familiar? Fruits Basket and Kamisama Hajimemashita crafts a story with a premise based on supernatural themes. The girl loses everything but find a new chance with an offering that she can't refuse. She quickly realizes the changes in her new life with the presence of supernatural beings. Throughout the course of both series, there is relationship development as we learn more about each character. There is also a progressive story that focuses on the family legends of both series. Fruits Basket has more drama while Kamisama Hajimemashita adapts comedy. However, both series are considered shoujo classics so give them a try if that's something you're interested in. read more
Both series include a girl that has lost everything - home and family. She gets offered to live in a place but turns out the place is owned by an animal-related person. In Kamisama Hajimemashita, it involves a dog-like demon, a snake demon and various other animals. In Fruits Basket, it involves the 12 animals of the zodiac. Both very funny <3
Taking place in a modern setting, Black Bird and Kamisama Hajimemashita are more or less examples of classic shoujos. Both series' main female protagonist gets themselves with a mysterious male with supernatural abilities. But as the series goes on, their relationship with this the male protagonist develops into something more than just partners/friends/acquaintances. There are also legend lores in both series along with background stories relating to the main characters. Black Bird is more known for its more mature story and occasionally smut. On the other hand, Kamisama Hajimemashita maintains its charm and lighthearted atmosphere.
Both are Japanese mythology-based supernatural romances, with the focal point being a 'normal' high school girl having very important inherent power that makes all the bad guys wanna eat them. However, good-guy childhood friend demon/shrine guardian/extra love interest(s) are always on hand to protect them. How lovely.
- Kamisama Hajimemashita is relatively more innocent and light-hearted.
- Black Bird involves the sexy times and is a fair bit more serious when the bad times strike. Which is often.
Both have good art, deal with supernatural spirits (tengu/yokai), love between a nonhuman and a human, a somewhat weaker female lead (though the girl in Kamisama Hajimemashita is pretty strong). Black Bird is aimed at older audiences as it gets pretty smutty later in the series while Kamisama is very cute and a slow-romance kind of manga. If you loved one you'll love the other!!
These stories both center around a normal girl who is thrust into the supernatural world of the gods, and proves her strong character in the process. They both involve comedy and romance, with some darker elements in the past that come back to affect the main characters. Noragami and Kamisama Hajimemashita are both excellent stories (both still in progress at the time of this recommendation).
There are some similarities in both: Kamisama and Noragami. Both the MC intend to become a know god; the reader is lead to learn together with the female MC how is spirit world; both the male MC have a dark and secret past. Kamisama is sweeter, but both are funny and really enjoyable. I highly recommend them.
While the tone is different throughout, both manga take traditional Japanese mythology as the fantasy setting's starting point, and deal with human interactions with the supernatural. Noragami is more action-focused, while Kamisama Hajimemashita has a bit more focus on romance. Both feature a good deal of humour and sprinkle in more serious and dramatic moments, so if you enjoy one there is a good chance you'll enjoy the other.
Both series has a very strong willed heroine. Their life changes as they enter the supernatural world and meets a mysterious guy(s)?! And staying under the same roof isn't very easy.
I really love Kamisama Hajimemashita manga and anime, once you read Momochi-san Chi no Ayakashi Ouji you will enjoy another great series!
Both are about an orphaned, homeless girl who takes up residence in a shrine where she is initially told to leave. Both lead male characters are fox demons (and I suspect that the author of Momochi heavily based the male character off of Tomoe in terms of design), though their personalities are very different. Youkai, supernatural things, being the head of a prestigious shrine, etc. are abundant in both manga.
1) Aoi looks exactly like Tomoe,
2) Himari has very similar personality + she possess some kind of a hidden power that develops within time just like Nanami,
3) It's a story about ayakashi.
This three reasons point similraities up between two mangas :)
In both, normal girls somehow 'received' god power from a god.
Though the plot in the 2 series go into different paths, become a god or remain as a human.
Nanami is 'bind' by her role as a land god but Inari is going into the direction so that she can control and live with the power as a human without becoming god.
Both contain their troubles with love and interaction with other gods.
Even with its shoujo themes, Kamisama Hajimemashita and Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha. adapts a series involving spirits/Gods. The main female protagonist comes into contact with a supernatural force where they make a contract/deal. They are also able to see what other normal humans cannot. Throughout both series, there's a distinctive focus on the characters' development and relationships with others. And despite having fantasy elements, both series adapts human traits well.
* Both are about a girl receiving divine powers and how they deal with all the consequences of receiving such powers.
* Both have VERY cute romantic development.
* Side characters are lovable and their stories make you root for them too.
* Both are enjoyable reads (even though kamisama hajimemashita is longer)
Both are supernatural romances and revolve around 'normal' high school girls becoming shrine gods who are protected by non-human (tsundere?) guys. Cue Japanese mythology adventure times and demons wanting to eat the girls for their shrine god powers.
Sailor Fuku ni Onegai is arguably more dramatic than Kamisama Hajimemashita, but don't let that put you off. They're both very enjoyable shoujo 6__6
A fox spirit serving/protecting a girl, just that in this case the "Tomoe" in InuxBoku is really obedient and exaggeratedly nice to the main girl and "Nanami" (Ririchiyo in InuxBoku) is really tsundere and rude. Similar just in concept, not in story. Both are romance.
Both Kamisama Hajimemashita and Inu x Boku SS include a fox spirit character - Tomoe and Soushi respectively~♡
Both of them had a really sad past and were in a way saved by their female protagonist - Nanami and Ririchiyo~♡
There is also a Master/Servant relationship at the beginning (though stronger in Inu x Boku SS) but this relationship gradually becomes a lovers sort of relationship after they get to know each other better and went through several hardships ♡
I highly recommend both Mangas~ >w<
Inu x Boku SS and Kamisama Hajimemashita takes place in the modern setting with a package of fantasy, slice of life, and romance themes. The main female protagonist gets involved with an male individual who possesses supernatural abilities. Their relationship is a core focus in both series as we see their progress. There is also complicated affairs involving their story as the series progresses including background revelations.
Similar main characters, romance, concept and plot.
Both main males are foxes with similar powers and a really bad temper. (Similar personality in genral actually) They both refuse to have a romantic relationship with a human girl. Both males also have a dark past, which led them to having to protect humans for several hundred years.
The main females are also similar in several ways. They both rely on the male's protection even though they really want to be able to protect themselves.
Both stories have similar plot, girl lives in a shrine and goes to school while the male is going to protect her from supernatural spirits and monsters, although Cheonnyeon Kumiho is more about foxes and the male's story and Kamisama is more about the female's development and her getting stronger.
I would also like to point out that the romance is pretty similar in my opinion. The characters have similar relations, and the romance between them have similar pace and development. read more
They have the same kind of plot of a fox guy forced to protect a priestess girl against his will. Then they have to work together to solve obstacle that occurs. And thru out their hardship, they soon fall in love. Typical shojo but really good, you should give them a try.
Coming elements of fantasy, slice of life, and a bit of romance, both series adapts a well-rounded story about supernatural beings. The main premise may not seem similar but there's a good amount of relationship building with familiarity. In fact, the main characters' personalities are similar - strong, independent, and caring towards their friends. Their role in the story is expanded as they face difficult obstacles as well as their own personal struggles. There's also a bit of romance development that becomes evident as well. Anyone interested in a lighthearted fantasy story should consider giving these two series a shot.
Despite their different premises, Akagami no Shirayuki-hime and Kamisama Hajimemashita has a familiar feel with their story. Both series' main female protagonist are self-independent and are clever with their ways of thinking. Their encounter with the main male protagonist seems to be almost like fate as they get to know each other. Both series also adapts romance that becomes more evident as the story progresses on. There is also distinctive amount of fantasy elements as we see how their world functions.
Akagami no Shirayukihime's story line is completely different from Kamisama Hajimemashita. However, in both stories the main characters aren't your typical shoujo stereotype. The main heroines, Shirayuki (AnS) and Nanami (KH)'s personality are almost similar to each other though Zen (AnS) and Tomoe (KH) aren't in the sense that Zen didn't hate Shirayuki.
While reading KH, I'm reminded by AnS even though, as I said, the story line are completely different. Both aren't as predictable as it seems. Don't try to judge this both by just the cover or plotline. If you liked one, try the other too. Both are highly recommended for readers who can't stand mushy lovey-dovey shoujos. Happy reading! :3 read more
- Both of them have two guys protecting/working with the main girl (in SDs they're dolls and in KH they're familiars)
- In both the main girl weilds some kind of power (the ablilty to cleanse evil)
- They both deal with whether romances between a human and the other (dolls/familiar) are possible (the main character likes one of the guys)
- Both the guys in the both the mangas really care for and like the girl
Theyre both about a girl who is homeless and is found the by god of a un-popular shrine, and ends up living with them. Once you read Kamisama Wa Ikiru No Ga Tsurai, you will definitely find the similarities!
A young human girl finds herself living at a shrine and romance ensues between her and one of its supernatural occupants. In both, the shrine god struggles to become more capable, assisted by his/her familiars.
Both involve the growth of a romantic relationship between the strong female protagonist and her supernatural servant. Kamisama is a bit more light-hearted and current than Her Majesty; but if you liked one I would consider looking into the other.
-Both Nanami and Ryou need to be protected by the hero, but work on becoming more skilled so they can protect the people they love.
-both female protagonists are resolute about who they love
-both transition from present to past
-multiple love interests
Two different worlds behind human knowlage. Both manga has creatures as a main characters, there is a lot of magic and also, another MC is a bit clumsy human, who get to know about everything who seems impossible.
Both, Nanami and Usagi are women who begin very weak and dependent on their respective hero to save them. The story focuses on their struggle to be stronger and to impress the hero they love. Both, Tomoe and Hanazoe are skeptical and rebuff the heroines on their first meeting but slowly fall in love with the heroines as Nanami and Usuagi show their sincerity and dedication to their cause. Both desire the affection of the hero and get into a series of conflicts where the hero has to save them. Both heroines have multiple love interests but are always resolute about their love for the hero of the story.
As the story progresses the heroines begin to better understand the men they love and try to work hard to improve their skills. Nanami works towards being a better land god where Usagi develops her herbalism skills and ocassionaly ninjistu. While working on these respective goals they are able to help others and forge important friendships that will help them in the future.
Kamisama Kiss and Kamichama Karin are two shojo manga series about a girl in unfortunate situations becoming a goddess. Through her struggles of learning to use her new powers, she meets a boy with similar powers to hers, though they dislike each other at first. Both series are recommended for shojo manga fans who enjoy a mix of romance and fantasy.
Both of these manga have youkai.It has some of the some youkai, though Nuraihyon no mago has much more. Kamisama Hajimemashita focuses more on romance with a hint of action,whereas Nurarihyon no Mago is the opposite. If you like supernatural I recommend either of these.
The plot for these manga isn't all that similar.
The episodic style of Kamisama and recurring side characters really reminded me of Princess Resurrection. Also both main girls have to prove themselves in some way.
Though not completely alike in terms of plot or story length, the relationship between the main character and their supernatural love interest shares some of the same elements with Nanami and Tomoe's pairing, especially involving the past. I would elaborate, but that would spoil it.
MCs are very similar. You have the same feeling while reading. It's just that one is about Demons and another about Gods. The kindhearted girl who always helps others and cold boy who's by her side. And there's this one big problem they have to solve that comes from the past/future.
Both have familiar summons (althought in kamisama hijimemashita its demon familiars in Ayahatori shoukanjou its people and animals summoned from books)
both have strong female leads with a strong back story (KH the father left her and she basicly raised herself, in AS she also basicly raised herself)
in both the characters are confused as to weather they like each other (epically the guy)
overall they just reminded me of each other, though i loved both i think KH was better it was also longer. Ii highly recommend it and i think if you liked AS then you will like KH to :)
The stories are very, VERY different.. but there are a few similarities. Both heroines have no home left to go back to, they both live with older male guardian-like figures, and they both end up falling for them. Kamisama is much longer and it isn't as simple as Tsubaki-chou, but I really enjoy both of them. To me, they have similar feelings.
most everyone who likes Kamisama Hajimemashita also adores Akatsuki no Yona :-)
- sweet but determined protagonists
- light romance
- supernatural elements
- folklore and legends
- great supporting characters
Both Akuma to Dolce and Kamisama Hajimemashita have the same author. In both manga, there is sparking love between a human girl and demon. The demon characters are quick to anger but really treasure their love interests. Both manga have their comedic sides as well!
Because of their willingness to help others both main characters get in weigh over their heads. While the main character of Kamisama helps a man in a tree escape from a dog, the main character in Eto Royals helps a dog. Both of these acts cause them to be thrown into some situations against their will. One of them becoming a shrine goddess of a shrine that a less then excited fox demon lives at. And the other main character becoming partners with the dog zodiac in a Zodiac battle against her will. Both are packed, with situations that will make you laugh!
Both have somewhat similar feeling and the heroines will end up with a familiar to protect them and encounter different obstacles and troubles regarding supernaturals. KamiHaji is slightly more darker with the story.
There are two different stories but in my opinion they have the same romantic atmosphere. There are both tender and heartwarming with development of relations between characters as main theme of manga. For this reason, I suppose that this mangas differ from others with the same genre and similar stories, and because I rate this two higher and also reccomend it.

In both the main girls are targeted by demons everyday and end up living with a demon that although disliked her at first and it was somehow forced to protect her, later starts to feel compassion and a growing feeling for her.
Nanami and Hikari share almost the same personality (they even look alike physically), so even though the story has nothing to do with the other, you could still enjoy them if you like the main female chara.
Both stories have humans who are involved with the spirit world and they are protected by spirits. If you enjoy one, you'll probably like the other, although Natsume is far more episodic than Kamisama.
Both girls are now Land Gods and there servents fall in love with them.
In Kamisama Hajimemashita the girl falls in love with her servent.
and in Omamori no Kamisama the servent falls in love with there master. Also simular in other ways.
Both have supernatural/fantasy elements, though in Kamisama, it's familiars and gods and stuff, while in Earl, it's fairies. Both are a great read, considering they have great art, and a not-so-typical storyline.
They both have a bit of everything, and are sure to please.
While Barajou no Kiss is a reverse-harem it does have a few similarities. Both protagonist are given special positions (Anis becomes Rose Princess, Nanami is Land God) and both are 'masters' over men.
Barajous no Kiss does deal with the supernatural, high school life, idols (Suzumura Idel vs. Shinjirou Kurama) who both have mysterious past and are fence sitters, and Anis also has an independent spirit yet also a goofy side.
Anis and Nanami are both surrounded by gorgeous men whom are either in love, or have feelings, or serve them. However while Nanami singularly likes Tomoe, in Barajou we're given more drama since Anis has to decide between four guys and she does show uncertainty.
Just like Nanami and Tomoe, Anis shares a bond with Kaede despite the banter.  read more
Just a glance at the front cover shows how much these mangas are alike! They're both about fox demon spirits who protect the female protagonists. The art style is quite different, but I like both in their own respects.
The main characters from both series have unusual gifts or rather supernatural abilities that defies the laws of nature. Both series adapts a story taking place in modern time where spirits and apparitions are involved. Their style are portrayed differently but both series adapts story angles where conflicts are the result of their existence. Kamisama Hajimemashita also has more shoujo themes while Kyoukai no Rinne is known for its shounen style.
It's similar because the main girl character in the beginning are put in this situation they can't refuse and have to deal with a rude guy. They begin not liking each other; Calling each other names especially the boys lol. Then later on fall for each other after complications(drama) :P plus the main boy characters both share a stubborn attitude towards their feelings.....and I think the story well be interesting along the run.
Japanese mythology abounds in these two manga full of Tengu, Sorcerers and Kitsune and a girl's heart big enough to love them all. Two great manga with incredible art a healing romance and magic everywhere.
In both Mangas, we have Animal Like protagonists who have interesting features and characteristics.
I enjoyed reading both, the drawing style is pretty and the romance isnt too much either. So you might enjoy both of these Mangas too.
First off, I'll state that these two manga (Shinobi Life and Kamisama Hajimemashita) are in my top ten of all time... thus I may be biased. =) But, if you feel the same, read on:
What they have in common:
- The stories both revolve around the couple and their developing relationship.
- Both girls in each story have the male as the protecting figure. In the case of Shinobi it's obviously a ninja, and in the case of Kamisama a fox demon.
- Both girls in each story have trouble adapting to the lifestyle of their male counterpart.
- Both stories have wonderful art, coming from someone who's very picky, and the bishies are lovely.
- Both stories deal with the past of the male counterpart. I won't spoil it for you. =)
- Both can get a little difficult to follow if you skip through or, in my case, have one too many cocktails during your reading session.
- Kamisama has more humor and is more lighthearted.
- Kamisama is a little bit more "episodic" than Shinobi, but still neatly carries the plot.
- Shinobi has many more historical elements, which gives it a more realistic air (aside from the time traveling of course). read more
The drawings are somewhat similar to each other, and they both got to do with shrines. It also has a common type of comedy. The plot is very different than the other, but I can't help but be reminded of KH when I read PB! o:
They are both awesome. A must read! <3
