Kamichu! and Tokikake are both anime about a young girl who gains fantastical powers and begins applying them to her everyday life. The overtones of Tokikake are sci-fi while Kamichu!'s are more fantastical and deal with Shinto beliefs. However, both shows are very focused on the characters's everyday lives being influenced by their newfound power. Both are happy at times and melancholy at others, and both are dashed with a spot of romance.
