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?!

For some reason I think that both these shows have similarities, both in drawing style (the female characters, in both, exhibit large eyes and mouthes)  and character development. If you liked one, you would probably like the other.

Ilsa Ilsa says...

You might like both animes and for sure there ia a lot of similarities. But if you look for exciting romance in compare Kaichou wa maid-sama wins.

I came to watch Kamisama Hajimemashita (Kamisama Kiss) because I loved Kaichou wa Maid-sama.  I was not disappointed and I immediately fell for this anime as well.  Light-hearted, a bit romantic, comedy, and a bit of mystery.

emilancer2 emilancer2 says...

they both have the main guy and main girl love and the guy protecs the girl and they have the same kind of feel ether way they are both great animes and i recomend both

shuuki shuuki says...

I guess the two themes/genre are very similar though one is in daily life while the other involves supernatural theme. The romance factor, which is the main part of the two animes, is so sweet and I am sure you would love it as much as you like the other one. 

lasuna lasuna says...

they're diffrent when it comes to plot, but they have a very similar feel to them. they both go into character development. just trust me when i say if you like one youll LOVE the other! 

MirroRMimi MirroRMimi says...

SIMILARITIES:

- Both have strong willed main characters (with similar hairstyles)

- Both have mysterious, all-capable, chivalrous perverts as the male interest.

- Both have a slow developed romance (no insta-love)

- Both are as good as Nutella. 

DIFFERENCES:

- Maid-sama! has a tsundere as it's MC, in Kamisama it's the male interest.

- In Kamisama the MC is the more affectionate one, in Maid-sama! it's the male interest.

- One deals with supernatural themes + high school (Kamisama), the other with maid cafes + student councils + high school

BeeTrice BeeTrice says...

It has a similar type of love. In Kamisama Hajimemashita, Nanami loves Tomoe, but the feeling is not mutual (in the beginning). In Kaichou wa Mais-sama, Takumi loves Misaki, and their love is not mutual (at least, not in the episodes I have seen). Their both wonderful love stories, while their complexities [Kamisama Hijimemashita : Being a deity] [Kaichou wa Maid-sama : Living in poverty] enhace the story.

RangerLilac RangerLilac says...

Funny, enojoyable and high-quality shows with an amazing story. What more could you ask for? (More episodes...but still) Both of these shows are very interesting and keep you glued to the screen until you finish an episode. I've watched Kamisama Hajimemashita twice, and still laugh or cry or feel a sense of dread for a character at the time the show portrays this emotion. I have seen Kaichou was Maid-sama! 3 times, and still love this anime. Some moments may be a bit cliche and guessable, but the way they are shown make them entertaining to watch, even if you know whats going to happen. I recommend both shows to any anime lovers.

Kimi ni Todoke

Kimi ni Todoke

Sawako Kuronuma is just like any other high school girl who wants to make friends and be useful. The only problem is she bears a worrying resemblance to Sadako from 'The Ring!' Because of her reputation, people are not only terrified of her, but small dogs even bark in fear at her presence; in fact, the only person in school who will talk to her is the lively class hottie, Kazehaya. As the pair spends more time together, Kazehaya slowly begins to bring Sawako out of her shell and soon their feelings for each other develop further. Though with her crippling insecurities, lack of social skills, and a series of cruel rumors and misunderstandings, it seems that Sawako's dream of a normal life won’t be quite so easy to obtain.

These series both focus around a girl in a strange erm... school. Furthermore, each series contains a lot of extraordinary characters and great humor. If you enjoyed one series, you'll surely enjoy the other.

wolfangel87 wolfangel87 says...

Kimi ni Todoke and Kaichou wa Maid-sama! Are similar to me because of the relationships between the characters.  The relationships that develop in the school settings and the support system that the main female protagonist is given from the ‘hero’ of the series.

KiyoneSaya KiyoneSaya says...

While the art style is similar for both of these series I'd say the biggest thing that stands out for me is how the guys in these anime give the leading lady a softer edge. Truly showing the vibrant colors of the protagonists.

cahbayb cahbayb says...

Youll need to complete the second season aswell for these two to be similar. Theyre both school romances with lots of comedy.

Psyche Psyche says...

They both take place at school. The guys are only interested in one girl. The set-up is the same, but in Kimi Ni Todoke both of the characters are very shy. They love each other but don't know how to express these feelings. In Kaichou wa Maid-Sama is the guy a bad boy and the girl is a strong and confident woman. But Misaki is still shy to love and doesn't want to give in. It's both about the girl experiencing love. You'll love both Kazehaya from Kimi ni Todoke as Usui from Kaichou wa Maid-Sama!

Drasticc Drasticc says...

Outside the run of the mill school life romance, theres a lot of comedy and "misunderstandings."  Also there is many simularities such as the artistic style of the characters and the whole "bubbly love scenes." 

bekybooo bekybooo says...

These anime's seem very similar. At first I had no idea why but then when I though about more I realised why. Protagonists both develops relationships with a guy with out realising and then the guy comes and changes her life. I doubt there is anyone who likes one but not the other. :)

wenning wenning says...

Both stories are about a high school girl that is clueless about love. What's different is that in Kimi ni Todoke, you get to see an insecure, low confidence girl and on the other side, in Kaichou wa Maid-sama, you get a loud and active girl. However, both of them are shy and unaware of their feelings. The two love stories are so pure that you will go "KYAAAA" throughout the entire show~ 

basanty basanty says...

It's beautiful anime about pure romance , both are great anime to improve the love and to left our sadness

Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun

This is a story about a boy and a girl who struggle with love and friendship. Opening yourself up to other people forces you to be honest with yourself.

snivets snivets says...

The two main male protagonists are both a little overbearing, do as they please, and have totally fallen for a female lead who seems bent on ignoring them in favor of her studies. If you like shoujo with lots of tension and hilarious conflict between a pair of characters who oh-so-obviously like each other, give these two shows a go.

eminAAnime eminAAnime says...

 I really LOVE both animes!!

Both have a guy that is madly inlove  with the protagonist ( girl ) and tells her strait up front and even though she rejects them they keep on lingering around like a faithful dog until they realize that they truly can't be withought them <3 <3

HaiMyNameIsCheese HaiMyNameIsCheese says...

Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun is a bit more back and forth type of anime and I found it to be much harder to stop watching it, while Kaichou wa Maid-sama! made me laugh more and had a few more light-hearted moments. Both are very good romance animes.

maxis1345 maxis1345 says...

romantic comedyodd but perfect couple 

story amazing

you would enjoy it

both series character have doubt on their emotion

but hero is always in love with heroine from the very begining

a secondary character is after main female character too and she care from him but it's not love

Milved Milved says...

They are both really great series, and the couples are really cute together. The storyline is quite different, but they both have the same feel to them. If you enjoyed one, I would definitely recomend the other.

thomchris48 thomchris48 says...

ther are a lot of simularities. you like on you'll like the other. best part is it feels fresh even after just watching maid sama

lydiax lydiax says...

Both are about super studious and serious girls who fall for super smart and goofy guys and get side tracked. Tonari no K develops a bit faster, but you will like it if you liked Kaichou

Ilsa Ilsa says...

Interesting romance but with plot and without very idiotic behavior of a girl. Male characters likable. Bookworm girls are quite intelligent.

RoyalOss RoyalOss says...

Both are love stories between a main female lead who both struggle to maintain their top position in the school test results and the carefree male characters who ace at everything they do.

A twist is that Maid-Same focusses alot on Misaki`s part-time job where Kaibatsu-kun focuses more on the social problems surrounding Haru.

The shows also contain a good amount of humour, of which also some cheesy humour.

Suki-tte Ii na yo.

Suki-tte Ii na yo.

Mei Tachibana has had neither a friend nor a boyfriend in 16 years, and she doesn’t plan on ending that streak any time soon. The outcast learned years ago that social obligations only lead to pain, and has carefully guarded her heart to keep from getting hurt. However, the girl can’t stay withdrawn forever, especially after attracting the attention of the handsome Yamato, who finds her caustic personality interesting and strives to date her after she roundhouse kicks him down the stairs. But even the most earnest of romances can be crippled by jealousy and insecurity, and this pair has plenty of both. Can their feelings for each other overcome their own emotional weaknesses, or will this love perish before it even begins?

The concept of lovey dovey is all in the air as the most popular boy and most hated girls are falling in love!Truely they compare one another, in similarties and hook-ups ! 

Psyche Psyche says...

Both involve a girl unknown to love and the most popular guy in school who tries to win them over and teach them about love. Suki-tte Ii Na Yo is a lot more mature, calm and dramatic, while Kaichou wa Maid-sama! has a lot of humour to it. If you liked one, you might just like the other.

Jdogtoocool Jdogtoocool says...

I agree with the above comments. One is more serious and rolls by kind of quick due to its short episode count and the other just has a lot more fun and just runs with it. If you like one I'm sure you'll love the other.

Ilsa Ilsa says...

If you look for romance both are great choice. Suki-tte li na yo is more about relationship but I like how handsome man are there in the same idealistic way :D

saadebady saadebady says...

They are romantic animes.both got School Theme and the girl characters had no idea that what a Relashionship is !.its kind of funny.and also Lovely

Nchun27 Nchun27 says...

Both female characters are strong and know what they want. They both either refuse to accept the male's feelings or don't realise he has them. Both male characters really care for the girls and try to get her to realise that. Both anime are really cute and funny.

TallyCrow TallyCrow says...

Both Anime is heavy on the Romance. You have the girl that isn't really that confident with boys. You have the boy thats VERY confident with girls. 

Both centres around school and outside of school. 

Both does tackle some issues that could happen in real life. 

HOT BOYS ALERT! :) 

Kare Kano

Kare Kano

Yukino had it all. Brilliant, athletic, popular and pretty, she was the perfect school girl with many friends and admirers. But then one fateful day she met her match: a handsome young man named Arima. Now, not only is he beating her at her own game, she's becoming more and more dismayed to learn that she's developing her first real feelings of romance. Can Yukino maintain her model student appearance, or will love ruin all her plans?

bunnylovesanime bunnylovesanime says...

Like Kare Kano in Maid Sama the female main character has a secret she is trying to hide but a boy from her class discovers it. Similarly he keeps the secret from everyone, but over time she tells people. Like in Kare Kano you have a gentle, loving, and smart male character and a strong, smart, and slightly crazy female main character. In both series you get a great mix of romance and comedy

Korwin Korwin says...

Both shows are shoujo and tell a story about a seemingly perfect girl and a guy who gets to know their "dirty little secret" thus their tale of romance starts.

straydog straydog says...

the main characters relationship is pretty much the same in the maid sama and the first half of kara kano.while maid sama remains much more comedic and the kk get more serious and dramatic. they also use moe in the same way

kingshivan kingshivan says...

Kaichou wa Maid-sama! and Kare Kano are very similar, though in my opinion Kaichou is not quite as funny as Kare Kano, but they have the same elements: ultra-popular boy uninterested in anyone until ultra-popular girl comes along; Ultra-popular girl puts a lot on her own shoulders but secretly is relaxed outside of school, and is worried about being blackmailed when ultra-popular boy finds out; they both use silly drawings for inner-thought moments, or rather, both have a dichotomy of fancy art and silly art that works really well for both humor and serious drama.

They are different in certain ways too: in Kare Kano, the girl has a lot of work at school, but isn't feared only respected and adored for being intelligent, helpful, and beautiful.

Vertify Vertify says...

The romance and comedy atmosphere is simiarly the same - if you've watched Kaichou wa Maid-sama, than you at least won't hate Kare Kano. Extra praise given how old the anime is.
