Dating sim master Keima Katsuragi wants nothing more than to immerse himself in the 2D world, chasing digital girlfriends. But when the so-called 'Capturing God' answers a mysterious email from an unknown sender, Keima finds himself chasing down real-life ladies in an attempt to help the peppy demon Elsie de Lute Irma capture 'lost souls' escaped from the depths of hell. Now, lest the explosive collar around his neck detonate, Keima must convince various girls to fall in love with him in order to scare out the souls hiding in their hearts.

these two anime are similar in the way that they both follow an omnibus format or something similar.  As both protagonists chase after different girls and then moving on or returning back to a specific point in time, the audience uncovers more about the protagonists.


What makes TWGOK and Amagami SS similar is the plot, both of them feature an omnibus format centering on a male lead that has difficulties in expressing their feelings towards their love interest.


Each of these series focus around a single guy getting close to girl after girl only to have a somewhat similar event happen. If you like one guy interacting with many different types of girls, these fit well.


Although the conceptions of these two are quite differerent both of the main characters seduce several girls. If you enjoyed one of these shows I am sure you would enjoy the other because they have quite a few funny moments.On the other hand Amagami SS contains much more romance.


Of note is how they're both presented: separate arcs for each girl. Amagami SS's arcs are stand-alone (Separate timelines, if you will) while Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai's are one after another in a single timeline.

With that out of the way, Amagami SS focuses more on romance than comedy while Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai leans more on comedy without sacrificing too much of the romance aspect. Both look great and sound great, and while Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai has a bit of a fantasy vibe to it and quite a bit on dating sims, they are nonetheless similiar to the point where a fan of one will find quite a bit of enjoyment in the other.


Both series feature small arcs that deal with the male lead and the female lead for that arc and the romance that develops between the two.  Though Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai ties all the smaller arcs together into one larger overall plot and in Amagami SS the story for the most part resets after each arc.  Both feature some rather well developed love stories that will leave the viewer happy after each arc.


Both series have the male lead and multiple girls. One girl per arc. If you like variety of the male lead and heroines, this is for you! :D


Here's the premise: guy gets the girl.

That's how both of these anime go - Just that for Amagami SS it takes 4 episodes and has a lot of emotional meaning, and in TWOGK it takes from half an episode to 2 episodes, but it has little emotional significance.

In the same sense, Amagami resets to day 1 every 4 episodes, and Katsuragi's girls forget about him once the demon is gone - so it has a similar feeling if you watch all the episodes back to back.

The jokes are pretty similar too - "you're a perv! no I'm not" so that's always a fun time.


the main character in both series initial reports different girls will not stop as usual in anime with a single girl in amagami ss and as if the protagonist was reset whenever an arc ends, while Kami names zo Shiru Sekai the story continues it's the girls forget everything


Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai and Amagami SS are similar, in that each love interest is only relevant to the story for a few episodes. Both protagonists form relationships with a number of girls. The two series are harems with an omnibus format.


Both animes have the protoganist win the hearts of several girls. Amagami SS does it in arcs and tends to lean more on romance while Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai does it in a steady timeline and is more comedy based, If you liked one, you will definetely enjoy the other,


While TWGOK is much better than Amagami SS, there's no denying how similar their story structures are; Meeting a girl, interact, winning her over, and then repeat the same thing with another girl.

All the girls are some sort of stereotypes as well. But in TWGOK, it's intentional for the story.


Both have one guy who gets in a relationship with many girls one after another. Amagami's relationships are way more serious bc "The World Only God Knows" has a lot more comedy and plot that isn't just foccussed on relationship building. Both are very similar and good romance animes.

Date a Live

Date a Live

Shido Itsuka was born in a world where widespread catastrophes of varying size called spacequakes can happen anytime and anywhere, razing everything in the vicinity. When his city's alarm forewarns one impending, the teenager races to his sister Kotori in an attempt to rescue her. But upon his arrival, the spacequake transpires in that very spot, and standing in the middle of the destruction is a beautiful sword-wielding girl. Soon after, he learns she is one of many beings called "Spirits" who cause the disasters, and charming those like her is the solution to preventing them. Effective immediately, Shido must date Spirits and make them fall in love with him, because if he cannot, mankind's destruction may very well be inevitable.

Both shows take an approach at creating a "Dating Sim" anime. The difference is that in Kami Nomi, MC hits on normal girls, while in Date a Live the girls are magicalbeings from outer space. The two shows are really great and if you like one, then you'll like the other!


Both shows use the concept of dating games/sims and bring them to life by having the main character use the nuances and features of it to woo/capture troublesome dames. Mix in school life/comedy and a bit o' drama into these romance shows and you got a bucket of fun!


Both animes are about the main male character, who is at first unwilling, but has to make multiple girls fall in love with him, or at least get a kiss from them


I think these two are almost the same because the main character mision is to make girls fall for him to save them, the only difference is that date a live focus more in action and kami nomi zo shiru sekai focus on comedy


Both series is like game/dating sims...cuz for TWGOK,to capture tha 'lost soul',Keima must make the girl that have 'lost soul' in her to fall in love to him and for Date Alive it also like that but it nnot have 'lost soul',it have Spirit


Both involve the main character having to make someone fall in love in order to fix them. In Date a live the main character has to seal the powers of the spirit by making them fall in love which is similar to how Keima from TWGOK closes the gap in the hearts of Girls.


Both animes are about a male protagonist who saves the world by dating young women. While Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai is about a boy who helps a demon capture other demons that are inside of women, Date A Live is about a man who saves the world by dating entities called Spirits.


These shows are both very alike in the dating sim type style, whilst in Date A Live the MC has to date the girl and raise her affection for him to reduce her powers in Kami nomi he must tackle girls and "conquer" them to... well protect his life. The element is pretty similar, though Kami Nomi is a little more focused on the "how" to get the girls and such i think they are quite alike and if you enjoy one you might like the other.

Each of these series center around gamers and deal with a lot of stereotypes and tropes. Beyond that, the game references and much of the humor bring them together.


Both series center around people who would normally be considered something of social outcasts.  Though in Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai the outcast is a guy and in Imouto it's the girl both share some common traits in that they are passionate about there chosen fields.  Both have a good amount of amusing moments spread throughout the series and are sure to bring a few laughs to whoever is watching them.


Both titles present to us main characters that are addicted to dating sim video games, and both have romantic affairs associated with the main plot.


Both of these shows revolve around Otaku and how they brave daily life, choosing to either expose unabashedly or hide who they are.

Many questions about morality and life philosophy are asked by both of these series, but ultimatley, the comedy, romance and heartfelt stories are why you should tune in.

Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu

Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu

Fumizuki Academy is divided into classes ranked based purely on ability; Class A has laptops, reclining seats and ultimate comfort whereas Class F has to settle for a rundown classroom with rotten cushions and rickety coffee tables. Akihisa Yoshii has recently taken the placement exam and finds himself relegated to the lowly Class F along with many of his friends, and they’re far from impressed with their draughty facilities. Luckily, not all is lost as at Fumizuki, classes can declare war on each other to swap rooms by fighting with summoned characters whose strength is based on the users' test scores. As they dream of escaping their decrepit circumstances, the ‘idiotic’ students of Class F will try whatever they can to reach the dizzy heights of Class A’s luxury, even if it means taking on the entire school in an all-out summoning war!

Shows that rely heavily on wacky humor and are definitely a par of the "Whoah, this show is awesome and to think I expected it to be s*it" category. Main characters also share the same voice actors and some eccentric character traits.


I'm sure that if you liked one of these, you'll definitely enjoy the other. The main reason is because the characters are very well developed. Not only that but also the relations and the way they interact are extremely well balanced.

They're both funny and the main characters are both unique in their own way


Well, the kind of comedy this two show put on are very similar, if you like one you must see the other.

Lucky Star

Lucky Star

In present day Japan, the life of a school girl is never dull. The easily-bored Konata never finds time to study because of her otaku habits, which frustrates hard-working Kagami to no end. On the other hand, laid-back Tsukasa always manages to go with the flow, while Miyuki is concerned with keeping her status as resident know-it-all. Join these four girls as they muse and meander their way through everyday events such as eating chocolate cones, doing homework, gaming, and trips to the beach galore.

Both shows have lots of jokes and refrences to visual novels and both shows have an almost entirely female cast. If you like one you should watch the other.


Both series are absolutely crazy! Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai has more romance content, but the is a lot of about visual novels and anime and otaku things, like  Lucky Star. And sure, there is same style of humor.
