Kamisama Hajimemashita

Kamisama Hajimemashita

Nanami used to live in a ramshackle apartment with her father - a man who spent half his time gambling and the other half hiding from debt collectors - until one day the scoundrel ran away, leaving his daughter hungry and homeless. That is, until she meets a mysterious stranger in the park who deems her the new goddess of a local shrine! Unfortunately, Nanami’s new home is occupied by Tomoe, a fox familiar who objects to the presence of a mere mortal and immediately begins to bicker with the girl. If she can manage to form a contract with the troublesome man, he’ll be obligated to accept and help her perform her duties. But there’s a catch: Nanami has to kiss him first, and who’d want to lock lips with that awful guy?!

Both of these anime's have the main characters as moderately abadoned girls.  The main's are strong willed and prefer to do things their way.  The main guy characters are also similar in both of these manga's. They both serve the main girl char. due to their own circumstances and they are both demons. They also both have fuzzy ears ^.^ kawaiii although Tomoe isn't as gentle and obident in his servitude >;). If you love one you will deffinatly have to check out the other.

duchessliz duchessliz says...

These anime shared some simularities in the fact that they are both centered around youkai. They are also both romance/comedies in which both the main male protaganists are a fox demon.

Both anime are very, very enjoyable and if you liked one I believe you'll like the other.

furu101 furu101 says...

They both have a tsundere, and both have girls who are protected by their 'servants'. In Inu x Boku SS, it's Ririchiyo's secret service agent who protects her, and in Kamisama Hajimemashita, It's Nanami's divine servant, Tomoe. Both are endearing romance stories with just the right sprinkle of action, supernatural, and comedy.

Raccheel Raccheel says...

They're both very similar in a sense that the main character is a young girl being looked after by a male servant and they eventually fall in love. Both animes are hysterical, and if you liked one you'll like the other.

christinedanielle christinedanielle says...

They both have protagonists taht are youkai and they also have comedy and romance into it. Kamisama Hajimemashita and Otome also have hot bishounens around so if you're a fan girl you'll surely love it.

HaiMyNameIsCheese HaiMyNameIsCheese says...

Similar main characters when it comes to appearance, but different story lines completely. Either way, both very good.

zelda1591 zelda1591 says...

First of all, each series features a fox demon being a servent to a highschool girl. Kamisama Hajimemashita is much more lighthearted then Inu x Boku SS, however. In Kamisama, the main girl is  less mature than the main girl In InuxBoku, but they are slightly similar in some ways. The fox demon in Kamisama is hot tempered and not as proper as from the fox demon in InuxBoku. But, If you liked one I'm sure you would like the other.

Ryion Ryion says...

They both have a slight romance that isn't totally fulfilled.  You are constantly guessing how one of the two parties involved is feeling about the other.

 Your "squee" meter is definately filled by both of these animes!  

thegingerwolf thegingerwolf says...

Both are shorter animes with fox spirits that look surprisingly famaliar. They're both very good

odettelh odettelh says...

While the art and storytelling are wildly different, the fox character is the romantic lead and the girl isn't a pushover. The biggest similarity though is the love story. There's a satisfying (also, sweet)  ending to both the series and the romance. 

acidstreaks acidstreaks says...

Personally i like Kamisama Hajimemashita more, but Inu x Boku SS is a great step from either side to go too. Similar in their own way but each very different and astounding. If you enjoyed one of them, you are sure to enjoy the other.

lunarvixen26 lunarvixen26 says...

Both have a servant/master relationship that builds into a more personal relationship. They also both have supernatural servants that server masters with a special "gift". 

Larkawolfgirl Larkawolfgirl says...

Both are about girls being served by a foxes. The relationships are switched in that in Hajimemashita Tomoe is the abrasive one, while Ririchiyo is one in Inu x Boku. Both are romantic comedies with odd characters. 

KxNOxUTA KxNOxUTA says...

It's both reverse harem and you have one young lady at loss and one main servant (of some kind) helping her out of dangerous situations!

This is not hard people....... it takes four words.

akashiyumi akashiyumi says...

IF you are looking for romance anime. I'd recommend both.

Both stories involves contract between a female being protected by a male more specifically a fox. The relationship being formed between the main characters is really cute.

(P.S. Both foxes, Tomoe and Soushi, are adorable <3 )

pachitam pachitam says...

both showcase the relationship between a fox spirit and a young girl. both have elements of comedy, supernatural and romance. The sidekick roles are both interesting and entertaining. Likeable characters in both series. I personally like Kamisama Hajimashite better because of its more complex plot. But if you prefer more laughs than romance, go for Inu X Boku. Either way, the fox demons are simply hot :p

JeaneThompson JeaneThompson says...

If you liked either, you'll definitely like the other. I went from Kamisama Hajimemashita to InuXBoku SS. Both have romances involving a girl and "foxy" men. The only differences, for me, were the fact that the rough vs. sweepersonalities are switched - so in Kamisama, the guy has a rough exterior, while in Inu Boku, it's the girl. Also, Kamisama moves much faster, and has a normal plot flow, while Inu Boku moved really slow for me. Inu Boku is a lot more sexualized than Kamisama, in my opinion. 

Kuroshitsuji

Kuroshitsuji

In Victorian England it is commonplace for the rich and wealthy to have a staff, led by a head butler, to run their households; the Phantomhive Estate is no different. The young and demanding Count Ciel Phantomhive, child owner of a toy company, lives in the grand countryside manor. Sebastian is his head butler, and the epitome of perfection; he effortlessly and gracefully completes his day-to day chores and fixes the countless mistakes of the other employees. However, whilst on the outside all seems prim and proper, a more sinister secret lies just beneath the surface. Sebastian is in fact a demon bound by a contract with the young count; he will loyally serve and fight for him in return for his soul.

Butlers, maids, demons, and monsters. These two shows are similar in just about every way possible. The only significant differences I can think of are that Inu x Boku SS's young, rich kid is female, whilst Kuroshitsuji's is male, and that Kuroshitsuji is a much darker show than Inu x Boku SS. If you like one, I honestly can't imagine why you wouldn't like the other.

MidnightVampire MidnightVampire says...

Both of these Anime's include a butler/master relationship with the butler having extra ordinary powers that make them "One Hell of a Butler"!  The butler's would do anything for there masters.  These are both really amazing shows and don't think that just because you watched one means you've watched them all. Kuroshitsuji AKA Black Butler has many amazing characters each with there own super powers or extrodinary traits. Inu x Boku SS is the same way.  But the powers and the story lines are soo completely different from each other.  Inu x Boku SS has more romance between the butler and master than Black Butler but Black Butler makes up for the lack of romance with an amazing fast pace plot line with tons of drama, action, fantasy, and comedy mixed in as well. 

THESE ARE TWO AMAZING SERIES!!  I fell in LOVE with Black Butler first and have just recently found Inu x Boku SS and now I'm head over heels in LOVE with it too! I can't stress enough how absolutely amazing these shows are!! YOU MUST WATCH THEM!!!!!!!  They are amazing!!!!

sm3xyang3l sm3xyang3l says...

Although InuxBoku SS has more of a romantic genre in it, the two stories both are centered on a master and its butler based on a sort of contract. While InuxBoku SS is a more of a lighthearted and sweet anime, Kuroshitsuji is a dark yet with a tint of comedy.

paganchick paganchick says...

If you liked Inu X Boku SS/Korushitsuji, I would recommend giving the other one a go. They both share a plot centered around the relationship of a servant and master, of which both possess a form of supernatural power. They also both have various other characters whom also aren't quite human and provide comic relief.

In X Boku SS is more of a romance and has only a few fight scenes, that can't compare to Kuroshitsuji, however, Inu X Boku SS possesses a romance element that Kuroshitsuji does not.

Both servants are fiercely loyal to their masters and both share an unique relationship, that transcends a normal servant/master relationship.

Anyway, I enjoyed them both and would recommend one if you enjoyed the other :)

CreativeGirl333 CreativeGirl333 says...

1. In both, there are two characters that protect their "master"

2. In both, the characters who protect their masters are not fully "human"

3. In both, there are some funny episodes and action ones.

4. Other things that are the same but I cannot think of them now

PurplePeopleEater PurplePeopleEater says...

Inu x Boku SS focuses on a high school girl with blood of a monster in her, and her body guard in similar circumstances. Black buttler focuses on a deamon buttler who has to serve and protect a young boy. Both the boy and girl were somewhat abandoned by their family. Both the bodyguard and the buttler are tasked with protecting and serving the child. While Inu x Boku SS is more in the modern world and Kuroshitsuji  is more in an Old England setting, the two stories have many things in common including monsters and demons and some comedy along the way. 

cico1105 cico1105 says...

si, claramente si el conde ciel fuera una mujer. Y personalmete creo, igualmete que habia algo raro entre ciel y sebastian

Aerythrin Aerythrin says...

Supernatural themes in both, a "relationship" of sorts between the main characters (more prominent in Inu x Boku). Both protected by the older male counterpart.

Ririchyo from inu x boku ss is a lot similair to misaki form kaichou wa maid sama!. They both hide there true selfs so that they won't be hurt. They met a guy who protect them even if they don't want it. 1 good thing is that the guys don't give up. That give some funny sences in the anime.

If you liked 1 you will like the other. Both anime have humor and romance. You will enjoy it when you watch them

animegirlshelby animegirlshelby says...

Now that i think about it Usui and the Fox Butler(I don't remember how to spell his name) both have that mystery behind their character but in Inu x Boku SS you get to find out more about the butler than with Usui

sysmibmip sysmibmip says...

An ikemen gets infatuated with a girl, who finds his wooing (stalking) annoying at first. Rest assured, you will get a dollop of 'dere' as the story progresses.

savkirk savkirk says...

I loved both these amine and they, to me, are very similar. Just as Ririchiyo puts on a front and can't for the life of her seem to express how she really feels, Misaki has a similar problem (although unlike Ririchiyo, Misaki is generally well-liked and popular). The male characters also strike me as very similar (although I do think Maid-Sama did a bit better job developing the characters). They are both a sort of mystery and unbelievably devoted to the main female characters no matter how many times the female characters try to tell them they dn't need them/express disgust for them. If you liked the chemistry in Inu x Boku, you will definitely like Maid-Sama and vice versa. 

jinxlandon jinxlandon says...

Both have guys that go crazy over the girl and both have quite a bit of comedy. They also have some school setting but the story lines are different so pay a bit of attention to that if youre super specific. I love the cuteness and the romance for these two and I definitely loved both. 

Toradora!

Toradora!

Ryuuji Takasu has an eventful life: his classmates think he's a delinquent due to his 'killer' eyes; his crush Minori seems ever out of reach; and he’s just had an unfortunate encounter with 'palm-sized Taiga' – a feisty and dainty wench in his class. With different cleaning habits and tempers, the two clash like night and day; that is, except for the fact that Taiga and Ryuuji have crushes on the other's good friend! With school rumors abounding, the duo must now work together to play matchmaker for each other. Who will end up with their true love?

ziggy161 ziggy161 says...

Both are heartwarming stories about tsunderes (Ririchiyo is 'tsun-shun' apparently!) coming out of their shell and learning about portraying their emotions normally, though InuxBoku has more of a supernatural element to it while Toradora! is more school-life based.

Tom20 Tom20 says...

Such as Ziggy said, both are similar heartwarming romance stories with the only difference whereas InuxBoku SS has supernatural elements and Toradora is school-life centered.

sabrielsharmony sabrielsharmony says...

i don't know why but but the whole time i watched inu x boku i thought of taiga from toradora. probabaly the tsundere girl who hurts others but is really a nice girl who just wants a few friends bit.

Zero no Tsukaima

Zero no Tsukaima

In a world where magic is a reality, the young Louise is at the bottom of her class. Dubbed "Zero" by her classmates at Tristein Academy (due to her zero success rate for magic), Louise (along with all first year students) was charged with summoning a familiar; and instead of a cute magical creature, the familiar arrived in the form of... Saito Hiraga, a normal Japanese boy who was abruptly teleported from his own world?! Can both Louise and Saito come to terms with their new and complicated "relationship" and (more importantly) help Saito find a way home?

Holy moly. There are so many similarities between these two.

  • Both have a tsundere female lead
  • Both have a somewhat subservient male lead pretty much dedicated to the female lead
  • Both heavily feature fantasy elements
  • Both have a similar ratio of comedy to romantic scenes
  • Both have an interesting cast of support characters

Nanamy Nanamy says...

Both animes have romance,fantasy,magic,and comedy. the highclass girl and her protector/servant so then these two fall in love, also the personalities of the girls are similar, if you liked one be sure to check the other one as well, I enjoyed them both 

PurplePeopleEater PurplePeopleEater says...

Both shows have a female in charge of a male who acts as her bodyguard and servant. In both shows, the male has a contract with the female, although the contracts are not made the same way and they don't quite mean the same thing. The male in Inu x Boku SS is softer around the edges but he does use a sword like the other. Inu x Boku SS involves less pervy stuff and also less action while Zero no Tsukaima almost always has it's mind in the gutter and has more fights. The bodyguard in Inu x Boku isn't beaten up all the time for being a "perverted dog" either. However both females do have an issue with thanking others especially their servant and they both say things they don't mean to. Overall, both are good shows with similar ideas.
