Morisato Keiichi has always had bad luck. No matter what he does or how he acts, nothing seems to go his way. His bike frequently breaks down, his classmates take advantage of him, women ignore and scorn him, and on top of all that, he’s only 5'3". In Heaven, when someone’s bad luck and good luck are so heavily out of balance, Belldandy (Goddess First Class, Second Category, Unlimited) of the Goddess Assistance Agency comes to the rescue. Belldandy grants Keiichi one wish to make up for all of his bad luck, but when Keiichi wishes for Belldandy to stay by his side forever... the trouble begins. Can Keiichi keep Belldandy by his side, or will outside elements force her to return to heaven?
Aoi Sakuraba, heir to the Sakura department store, has only one thing on her mind-- her beloved. Betrothed from a very young age, she has been in love with him, Kaoru Hanabishi, ever since. After Kaoru left his family, their bethrothal was nullified. Aoi sets out to find him. Will they be able to stand against the barriers that will try to keep them apart?
Both AMG TV and AYA have two main characters that are in love or at least fall in love. These two series both revolve around the two lovers and involve outside characters with unique personalities that also like the male protagonist. If you watched one, you'd surely like the other.
Besides the fact that both "Ai Yori Aoshi" and "Ah! My Goddess TV" revolve around the same kind of story, they also have the same kind of sweetness between the two lovers involved. And, they have the same kind of atmosphere.
Both Ah! My Goddess and Ai Yori Aoshi have a central love story with side characters who provide interest and humor. In both the main guy is completely devoted to one girl, unlike some harem anime where he is incredibly indecisive about who he wants, or unaware of anyone's affections.
Ai Yori Aoshi focuses more on the romantic aspect, and moves the relationship along at a more satisfying pace than Ah! My Goddess. If you liked the romance of Keichi and Belldandy, you're sure to like Aoi and Kaoru.
Both AMG TV and AYA are very romantic and are based on the relationships between two different people who don't know each other. Through sad moments and troubles, there's always some light at the end of the tunnel.
Ah! My Goddess and Ai Yori Aoshi seem quite different at first glance; however, both titles offer genuinely pure female lead characters. In Ah! My Goddess Belldandy literally falls onto Earth, while in Ai Yori Aoshi, Aoi "falls" into Kaoru's life one day when he is on a train station. Another factor that relates these two titles besides the romance aspect or purity of the female leads is the lopsided ratio of women to men in each anime. Belldandy's sisters in Ah! My Goddess offer unique personalities and the fact that three magical sisters and one college male living together provide for numerous laughs. Ai Yori Aoshi could almost be considered a harem of sorts because of the number of women that love Kaoru, the male lead character in Ai Yori Aoshi. Even when his heart is set on Aoi, that doesn't mean the other women back down for one minute.
Both Ai Yori Aoshi and Ah! My Goddess are incredibly sweet romanctic series. If you're a sucker for that kind of thing, then you'll certainly like both series. Not to mention the nice comedic elements contained in both series.
Both are great love stories with sweet, capable female characters, and loser guys. However, they're not harem anime, because the male characters, Keiichi (also K1) from Ah! My Goddess and Kaoru from Ai Yori Aoshi only have eyes for their girls.
That doesn't mean the other female characters aren't important. In AMG, Urd and Skuld, Belldandy's sisters, play an important role in fighting Devils, the Goddess' nemeses.
In Ai Yori Aoshi, Kaoru's other female acquaintances are his friends, and form the backbone of his daily life. Even though I don't consider this harem anime, some female characters other than Belldandy and Aoi sometime have feelings for K1 or Kaoru, but they are never reciprocated.
In any case, I love both because the characters are utterly entrancing, and great love stories.
The meeting of a boy and a girl and the growing of their mutual feelings as well as the trouble to express them. Romance, love and the pain that goes with it. This is what you'll find in both series. So if you like one you'll probably like the other.
But while Ah! My goddess has a more mature feel to it and has a more fantastic setting, Ai Yori Aoshi is more funny.
This series is also like Ah My Goddess. It is shorter and goes at a faster pace than Ah My Goddess. The main characters are in a similar situation as in Ah My Goddess except there are no super powers, or magic used. They both live in a large house with no adult supervision. And friends and families have established themselves in the house with them. The main guy character has to be very careful and prove himself to the others so that he can be with the one he love. In both cases their love are a secret for the public.So if you like the type of anime with one guy trying to be with one girl that he loves and other girls keep interfering, then you will also like this show
good solid bit of humor in both tied in with an at times akward romance that leave you laughing. Both animes feature an at times dorky guy getting lucky with a beautiful girl.
Ai Yori Aoshi and the Ah! My Goddess series are eerily similar. A girl comes out of nowhere to stay with the main character forever, they have some relationship conflicts, and a whole bunch of busty women end up living with them. Think Ah! My Goddess with a whole lot of fan service.
A few things to note. Though any fan of AMG's spectacular romantic moments is sure to get a kick out of Ai Yori Aoshi, be sure not to hold your expectations too high. The romance doesn't seem to "flow" as well as AMG's does, and the characters aren't nearly as deep or interesting. You will, however, come away with a few laughs and a feeling of satisfaction (get this: the leading couple actually kisses!).
3.5 / 5 stars. 4 / 5 if you like fan service.
Somehow these two anime seem very similar. I watched "Ah! My Goddess" first, and then "Ai Yori Aoshi" and found that it had a similar plotline: a seemingly average guy blessed with a seemingly perfect woman who is devoted to his every desire and need.
Both series are about a couple that must over come many obstacles for their love. Both femals leads are girls that are just too good to be true for the male leads. They will do anything for the ones that they love. If you liked one you'll like the other.
Both of these shows portray a relationship between a girl and a boy who deeply love each other.
The girl takes care of the boy by means of cooking, cleaning, and by just caring for him. They also must get though the hard times by relying on each other.
Besides the main relationship, there is also a harem of girls present in both animes with each girl consisting of a unique personality.
If you liked either Ah! My Goddess or Ai Yori Aoshi, then the other is a definite watch.
Both these shows involve around women who love the men they've suddenly started a relationship with. Over the episodes the bond grows stronger between the couples. Both are beautiful love stories. Both shows also have side characters who help/harm the relationship!
Both these anime are love stories - and both involve a seemingly normal guy and a girl that is more than you might except. AYA is not quite in the 'magical girl' genre (whereas AMG definitely is) but has similar elements in it. If you loved one you are bound to love the other...
Ah! My Goddess and Ai Yori Aoshi are twin series without doubt. The main males and females are almost interchangeable, the progression is handled much the same, and both rely hevily on sweetness.
If you liked Ah! My Goddess, which undoubtedly liked you should watch also this one. Where a guy who is not allowed date this girl due social status that he has lost. It is a love story that is so great you cannot resist it.
Contains some incredible college life references also and what kind people you can find there.
Both of these animes are harem animes. However, they don't really go into the ecchi aspects of the genre too much.
They both have a single male main character who has faced hardship in his life. Then, one day, a girl appears out of the blue and changes all that. In Ah! My Goddess, Belldandy comes from heaven to help Keichi. In Ai Yori Aoshi, Aoi Sakuraba has only been thinking of Kaoru Hanabishi and just wants to be with him, unknown to him.
Both have their ups and their downs but they are similar in the overall feel of each other.
Both pull on the heartstrings in a way that keeps you rooting for the main couple despite all the pitfalls in their way.
If you like Ai Yori Aoshi, you will Like Ah! My Goddess TV and vice versa ; for that feel good Mood, Both have lots of sweetness/love with out too much drama like other Romance anime
Having failed to earn admission to a university, Hideki Motosuwa has moved to the big city, determined to study his hardest for next year's exams. However, an unusual distraction presents itself one unsuspecting day in the form of Chii, a robotic young girl that has been discarded in the trash. In a world where an increasing number of people turn to these 'persocons' for company, the bonds and limits of human relationships are tested as flesh manages to fall in love with the machine itself...
Take a normal boy and put him in an extraordinary circumstance and you have a recipe for a great anime. If you like comedy, drama, and romance then Ah My Goddess TV and Chobits are right up your alley.
Due to an extraordinary event a boy and a girl meet; however, it soon becomes clear that his life henceforth won't be all roses and sunshine. In both Ah My Goddess and Chobits the guy is really shy; this makes it hard for him to advance this possible romance. This of course leads to various humorous situations. That's not all there is to the story though, as there are several forces trying to stop the romance at all costs!
A.M.G is something that's rare to come by, just like Chobits. Chobits is about a robot and her master, love, and love's ultimate survival against the odds in a creative world. Both weave a love story that draws you in. Though Chobits is short it is definitely more potent than A.M.G. The reason is because of the lack of fillers in Chobits.
Both series deal well with 'alternate' women living in their home. The script is well written and even though there maybe the odd moment of 'cringness', it makes the anime even greater to watch.
Both anime work well with the English or Japanese dub, you can't go wrong watching these.
Both series center around an average guy who has a chance with a chic who is super-human. Both have thier cute and funny moments with a little innuendo. Although Ah! My Goddess doens't have as many plot-twists and surprises, I think it's equally as good as Chobits.
Both animes are shoujo shows with a great sense of humor, cute stories, and a lot of heart. While Chobits is a bit more sexual and perverted in its humor, they both show that side of love that we all watch shoujo for: that love knows has no limits (literally) and nothing can interfere with true love.
If you like this at all you will love chobits . IT has the same theme of hijinx induced by being in love with an other worldly woman and they both dial up the cute factor to make the series work. Chobits it a little more indepth when it comes to the character development where as Ah! my goddess can get a little busy with it's multitude of story lines. If you can I would watch Chobits first becasue the world it presents ti just smaller but either way it it a must see for any who love coming of age love stories.
good solid bit of humor in both tied in with an at times akward romance that leave you laughing. Both animes feature an at times dorky guy getting lucky with a beautiful girl.
The recommendation reasons are rather obvious for these two romantic comedies. Already the main setting boasts with similarities, both including a male main character who suddenly meets a not-so-normal woman who is quite oblivious to many things in this world. Together they experience a lot of new while learning things from each other and, slowly but surely, their relationship starts developing in more than one way.
If you enjoyed the way AMG approaches the relationship between the main characters, there's a good chance you'll enjoy Chobits, too.
If you liked AH! My goddess then you'll like Chobits. Both have a young, single, lonely male main character that end up living with some mysterious hot female. So if you a person that enjoys a little sexual humor then Chodits will be a great watch. This time you don't have to watch it from atop the tree branch.
Both animes are centered around men that while not particularly intelligent or good looking are very kind these men who are hideki motsuwa in chobits and morisato keiichi both of these men suddenly find themselves with beautiful and kind women chii in chobits who is a type of android a called a persocon and sufferes from amnesia and belldandy a goddess of whom they end up having to look after to look after and teach how things work for a normal human in japan thankfully for them these women learn fast and help out with gaining money and doing house work another thing these animes have in common is how embarresed the main characters get while dealing with these strange women and how little the women seem to understand why they get so flustered just because they touch.
Ah! My Goddess and Chobits are two of my favorite series. While Chobits is quite a bit more fanservice laden, both series are very alike in most other ways and are good matches. If you like one, safe bet is you like the other.
Chobits and Ah! My Goddess both deal with a clueless, yet caring male character who, for one reason or another, gets to live with a girl in his house. Both shows have plenty of comedy thrown into the lighthearted romance story. While both shows also show the problems the couples run in to, they never stretch these arcs out too long, maintaining a light feeling during the entire watch.
Both series are similar and watchable without feeling like one has ripped the other off plot-wise.
In both series, a teenage guy stumbles into the awkward situation of discovering their perfect girl, and is somehow obligated to live with said girl... who also turns out to be not entirely human.
Chobits takes a bit of a sci-fi path, while Ah! My Goddess has strong fantasy undertones. I believe viewers of either will enjoy the other, but be warned - Chobits is very much Ah! My Goddess's older perverted brother.
A down on his luck, unpopular, college age male is thrust into a situation where he "obtains" a beautiful one of a kind female who will do just about whatever he wants them too. Romantic comedies with out of this world females and under average males. If you liked one you're sure to like the other.
Chobits and Ah! My Goddess are similar in setting as well as characters. The differences are mostly angels and androids, as well as were the 'unbelievable' factor that splits it from being set in the real world. The 'unbelievable' fact for Ah! My Goddess is the fact that he accidentally called an angel, while the 'unbelievable' factor of Chobits is that so many girls could be interested in an average kid in community college who works at a bar.
The main character of each are practically identical, both in looks and personality. Standard, plain male character who is basic enough for any male veiwer to relate to.
The main girls of each end up moving in with the main male without much choice — in Ah! My Goddess, it's Belldandy's job, and in Chobits, he picks her body up off of the street. While living with them they grow to act like the main lucky dude's wife, and through acting that position, they fall in love with the main male.
There are obstacles each must overcome in relation to the difference in their 'species.' Keiichi has problems (mostly in the form of other angels) to overcome with Belldandy about her being an angel, and Hideki has societial problems about dating a machine to overcome in Chobits.
Both are hilarious, and if you like one, you're pretty much garunteed to like the other. Unless the selling point was androids or angels. But if you're looking for the general feel of the anime and the character relations, then you should give the other a shot.
Both series feature a relationship between a human guy and non-human girl that has strong platonic feel to it and in which the girl's love is (nearly) unconditional. Ah! My Goddess TV is very light on fanservice, while Chobits has quite a bit of it, on the other hand Chobits has more story going on, while Ah! My Goddess TV is rather episodic.
Keitaro Urashima is somewhat of a failure. In order to fulfill a promise he made to a girl fifteen years ago, he has tried time and again to get into Tokyo U but has never managed to pass the exam. However, fate smiles upon him and he ends up working for his aunt, managing an all-girls dorm! Living with the feral Kaolla, the timid Shinobu, the sake-loving Mitsune, the blade mistress Motoko and the punch-happy Naru, can Keitaro keep his focus and keep his promise? And will he ever end up meeting that girl from his past?
Close to the spirit of Ah! My Goddess is Love Hina. Except instead of being forced to live with an angel, Love Hina's Keitaro lives in a girls' dorm as a manager, only to find out that his childhood love is staying in the very same dorms. Both anime share light-hearted comedy, unlucky guys, and a bit of competition for their hearts.
Romance, wacky humor, larger-than-life occurrences -- what more can you ask for in a "harem" anime, with a hopeless, luckless guy surrounded by a group of beautiful yet unusual women? Both Ah! My Goddess and Love Hina have the pleasant knack of combining funny (almost silly) elements with moments of poignance and expression. Keiichi and Keitaro are the world's two unluckiest male protagonists until they find themselves living an interesting life under the same roof with a bunch of girls; they encounter rivals for their love interests, get terrorized by mecha on a daily basis, and from time to time, embark on a crazy adventure. Both anime series put a lot of emphasis on romantic development, but they are also stories of the protagonists' growth as well. Although the personalities of the characters differ by magnitudes, if you liked the slice-of-life quality of one, then you'll definitely like the other.
There is one distinct difference between Ah My Goddess and Love Hina: Love Hina is about clobbering the main character as hard as you can. ^^. Both provide great humor where the male lead just ends up being the wrong guy at the wrong time in the wrong place - and that's all the time!
Both anime are about a single guy caught up in drama which includes being chased by bunch of girls. Keichi (Ah! My Goddess) and Keitaro (Love Hina) both live with lots of girls - Keichi in an old temple, and Keitaro in a girls' dormitory. Both ended up there by pure coincidence. And finally both characters develop feelings towards one of their cohabitants, which isn't expressed till the end thanks to the other girls.
Bunch of sexy girls and a clumsy main character. We all know what happens next, right? There aren'nt many harem shows that I liked but Love Hina was quite good. I think that if you like LH you will enjoy somewhat similiar harem show tittled "Ah! My Goddes TV". There's no guarantee though.
This is also like Ah my Goddess. The main character is a guy and he wants to be with his beloved. But they lived in a dormitory instead of a temple. Keitaro (see both of the names have the first same three letters) has five girls living with him while Keiichi has two plus one that pops up occasionally. Both are harem/comedy anime that have a ton of laughs.
Guys who are unlucky and somehow find themselves in situations that they never even dreamed of, are the basis for Love Hina and Ah! My Goddess. The only difference being one has a goddess and the other a turtle. Either way, enjoying one will mean that you'll like the other.
Both anime include one male surrounded by many girls. Both anime have a main character whose hopes are only set on one of them. While Ah! My Goddess TV has better animation and a supernatural feel they both fit into the same genre.
Love Hina and Ah! My goddess are, admittedly, very differant. Naru and Belldandy are polar opposites, and one is harem while the other is just 2. Besides this, though, the series have the same underlying themes and both are very sweet romances.
While visiting his hometown, junior high school student Michishio Nagasumi's life was changed forever when he nearly drowned. Though he was saved by a mermaid named San, there’s a catch -- her family is part of a merfolk mafia, and they abide by a strict rule: If a mermaid is discovered by a man, either he or the mermaid must die. That is, unless the man marries into the family! Faced with such a decision, Nagasumi can only oblige their customs and become a "happy" newlywed. Now, with a new school year around the corner, Nagasumi must find a way to deal with his new bride, keep her true nature a secret, and most importantly, escape inevitable death at the hands of San's over-protective father’s gang!
If you like the premise of a man and woman being forced to live together with comedic results, then you'll love Seto no Hanayome. Instead of 'godesses', you get mermaids. Instead of a wish, it's to avoid being killed by her family! Instead of being fought over by angels, you have a mixture of humans and fish beings. Seto no Hanayome shares some of the driving mechanics that make Ah! My Goddess an enjoyable watch, but with more laugh-out-loud moments and comic attempts on the protagonist's life!
Ever dreamed about becoming saved by a beautiful girl? Well, that's what Ah! my Goddess and Seto no Hanayome are about. In both of them the main character is a young boy in trouble, who will recieve help from a girl from another world. Because of the incident, they will have to start living together or face the consequences.
Both anime feature a male protagonist who suddenly encounters a beautiful girl of an otherworldly nature. Both use comedic elements, and have a light-hearted plot, as well as subtle instances of romance to tie everything together.
Goddess and human? Mermaid and human?
More or less forced to live together from now on sure is problematic but as these two series prove it also can be a lot of fun! If you liked one, you'd surely like the other!
Unlike Ah! My Goddess, Seto no Hanayome, focuses more on humorous site than dramatic romance. Seto no Hanayome is a anime about a mermaid who is forced to marry human and human is forced to marry this mermaid. Why? Well telling that would be a spoiler for you but I can say you will laugh when you watch this and most likely will be one of your favorite animes also.
A beautiful, powerful, but somewhat ditzy girl that suddenly becomes the significant other of a rather unexciting main character. Both anime have the main couple battling other suitors, bizarre drama, and the fact that they're from different worlds. Both are a great mix of comedy and romance.
Kei Kusanagi is a shy teenage boy with no romantic experience whatsoever... until he finds out that his hot new teacher is actually an alien! In order to conceal her identity, the two are forced into a pretend marriage... but is it really a pretense, or are they actually falling in love?
Both anime fit nicely into the "magical girl" genre, featuring an unlikely male protagonist with his fair share of problems who, by a twist of fate, meets the love of his life -- a more or less perfect girl from a different world who slowly helps him surmount his personal problems and realize his own admirable inner qualities. The stories focus on similar elements: the turbulences of their relationship, the concealment of the girl's true identity, annoying younger sisters, and the growth of the characters. Both anime have their comic and tear-jerking moments, and leave the viewer with a warm feeling inside. While many would argue that the storyline in Ah! My Goddess is more fully developed, Please Teacher does have a more conclusive ending!
Please Teacher and AMG TV are very alike; they both have tons of circumstantial humor and a romance with a being that doesn't fit into our society rather well - be it an alien or a goddess. You're bound to like both of these anime!
Both Ah! My Goddess and Please Teacher have magical or celestial female lead characters. These female characters, Belldandy and Mizuho Kazami respectively, fall in love with the seemingly weak or timid leading male characters. Magic doesn't play a crucial rule in Ah My Goddess, but there is an aura of luck and purity that surrounds Belldandy throughout the episodes. If you enjoy unrealistic romance, because of the origin of the female characters, then one would definitely enjoy either series even though in Please Teacher there is more of a focus on romance/love.
Leaving aside the obvious similarities between the characters in the shows, I’d strongly recommend checking out Onegai teacher for the same kind of heart-warming atmosphere as AMG. While Onegai teacher is a bit faster-paced, certainly aimed for somewhat younger audience and comes in a glimmering package of mild ecchi, I find these two shows greatly similar in their efforts to present a beautiful relationship out of this world, quite literally.
The premise of both of these shows is that of a beautiful, out-of-this world woman and regular guy meeting and falling in love. Both focus mostly on the relationship between the two leads, instead of bringing in a harem of other girls fighting for attention. Neither show uses ecchi as a crutch to sell the show, although Please Teacher does contain more than AMG.
