Synopsis:

On a day like any other, average middle-school-student Yurie Hitotsubashi got the surprise of a lifetime – she became a goddess! Unfortunately, even with her newfound powers, Yurie still can’t manage to find the courage to confess to Kenji, her crush. With Yurie’s fame comes others’ fortune; Matsuri, caretaker of the local shrine, names Yurie the shrine’s new goddess and becomes her manager – for yen and glory! Along with Yurie’s faithful best friend Mitsue, the trio set forth on an adventure to find out what it really means to become a goddess.

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 series revolve around a girl who becomes a deity overnight. Kamisama Hajimemashita is more of a comedy and Kamichu is more slice-of-life, but fans of one would probably like the other.

Kannagi

Kannagi

Mikuriya Jin makes a woodcarving from the remains of a guardian tree, but he gets much more than he bargained for when girl materializes from the statue! Her name is Nagi, the troublesome and at times violent deity of the land; and with nowhere to go, she announces that she will stay with Jin. Now, with Jin’s help and a magical girl wand purchased at the local convenience store, Nagi aims to exorcise the impurities that are infecting the land. Though when the sacred tree is finally uprooted, it is only a matter of time before her powers will diminish; thus, a new object of worship is required, and what better object than Nagi herself! However, obtaining your goal of becoming a popular idol is not so straightforward, especially when you have to compete with your sister, who is unwilling to share her fan base and plans to sabotage you at every step!

Japanese myticism and human gods are what both of these are about. That and those gods getting really popular

While Kannagi is less fantastic that Kamichu, they still both have that atmosphere that helps make them so great.

K-On!

K-On!

It's the first day of high school, and plenty of school clubs are doing their best to recruit new members. However, for ditzy Yui, none of them seem to fit the bill. However, when she accidentally signs up to join the light music club, Yui begins a hilarious adventure to become a world class guitarist! There's just one problem: she's never played the guitar before in her life! Joined by bassist Mio, drummer Ritsu and keyboardist Tsugumi, Yui and the gang will juggle their studies with buying instruments, learning how to read music and even performing in the school festival, all in the hopes of someday becoming a successful band!

Kamichu! and K-On! are gentle and cute slice-of-life series that end with an exclaimation mark. They each feature a clumsy girl as a lead character, and her interactions with her friends. I vastly preferred Kamichu!, because I felt the characters were more interesting, there was a semblance of plot, and it made me laugh, but the recommendation still works both ways if you like really cute girls doing cute things.

Mahou Shoujo Tai Arusu

Mahou Shoujo Tai Arusu

Alice is a preteen girl who believes in magic, much to the dismay of her parents and peers. But when she finds herself transported into a dreamlike world filled with magic, forest sprites, and witches, she finds out that magic is sometimes not all it’s cracked up to be. The witches of this world must capture forest sprites for use in casting their spells, and magical hierarchy dictates that those at the bottom must compete to get to the top. Dream or not, Alice must use her positive attitude to show these witches that magic should be used to spread happiness, first and foremost!

Kamichu! and Mahou Shoujotai Arusu are refreshing takes on the "young girl randomly gets magical powers" cliche. Both are really beautiful (the character designs for the magical creatures/spirits are especially charming), and manage to be "family friendly" while still having a huge appeal to an older periphery demographic.

Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto: Natsu no Sora

Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto: Natsu no Sora

Sora Suzuki is a girl who, like her late father, has the ability to use magic. Though she's always lived in the countryside, Sora is on her way to Tokyo where she'll undergo a summer apprenticeship. Unless she does so, she can't become a registered mage - a magic user who can take job requests from clients. Moving to the big city, making new friends and succeeding at her training could prove challenging, but with determination and a positive attitude Sora intends to overcome these obstacles and make the most out of her summer in the process.

While Kamichu certainly is a little more carefree overall, both shows have a certain serenity that surrounds them. The stories are about a girl with magical powers, and her journey in which she learns what exactly they are and how to use them. Unlike the premise of both shows, they can't really be classified as stereotypical "Mahou Shoujo", as the feel both shows have is quite different (more character focused and calm, rather than storydriven with snippits of action here and there). If you enjoyed one, it's worth giving the other a try.
