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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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!  


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


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. 


Unlike the main character in Kamisama Hajimemashita, the main character is a reincarnated yokai ancestor. Both male characters are fox demons, and they both fall in love with the main character. As this story's more comedic, it also has a bit more romance subtly through out. 


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.


If you liked Kamisama Hajimemashta, you would definatly like Inu X Boku SS as both have a similar fantay element to them such as demons and supernatural beings. Both main love interests for the femain prognotists are fox spirits/yokai. I would recomend them both as both are set in high school settings.

In both series, the main characters are high school female students who lose their home and family; that leads them to end up living in a pretty unusual situation.

The artwork also has some resemblance.


Same director on both, and both have the same style of comedy mixed with heartwarming moments. Fruits Basket is more heartwarming so far (although as I'm writing this only 5 episodes of Kamisama have aired), but any fan of one should enjoy the other.


Both are similar in style and even though tohru is alot more naive both girls have lost their homes and live with spirits that obviously have to end up falling in love with the main character who are extremely good people! both are Amazing! Please watch <3


The female protagonists in both show become homeless and they are sheltered by super-natural beings. The position of the two in their own homes respectively might be different, but the relations occuring with the people arround them follow a same pattern.


These basically have the same story. A normal girl, through happenstance meets some handsome boys who have strange powers and emotional turmoil and through her own kind heart, manages to win them over and help them absolve their hurts. However in Kamisama Hajimemashita, the girl has powers of her own, and the love story is more explicit than implied as it is in Fruits Basket.


Fruits Basket and Kamisama Kiss show great similarites. Both Tohru and Nanami are homeless, but are taken into another home. Both anime feature heartwarming and comedic experiences. The artwork resembles each other a bit, but they both have the same director. If you loved one, you're bound to love the other.


Furuba and Kamisama are two anime that begin with a young girl who is on her own and lacks a place to live. She is taken in by unusual people who are not completely human--and this living situation results in hints of romance and character growth on all sides.


You would like Fruits Basket and Kamisama Hajimemashita(Kamisama Kiss) because they both have shrines,both heroines are facing a family difficulty,they involve form changing,and they have similar artwork.


Fruits basket has more complex characters and has a deeper plot, but the female leads share a similar fate in that they both lose their homes through unfortunate circumstances. The style of animation is very similar especially when it comes to the way the male characters are drawn. Kamisama Hajimemashita is a good anime to watch if you are like me and miss Fruits basket!

RDG: Red Data Girl

RDG: Red Data Girl

Izumiko has lived a secluded, sheltered life in a mountain shrine since she was born. Having been raised to become the vessel of the Hime-gami, a mysterious force, the girl’s family has carefully planned and measured all aspects of her life - from the prestigious school she’s meant to attend to even her hair style. So when Izumiko is threatened by strange events, her father forces yet another obligation on her: Miyuki Sagara, a mountain monk descendant who’s fated to be her bodyguard. Unfortunately for the duo, neither is happy about the arrangement, especially Miyuki, who’s being exiled from his home city to guard a girl he considers to be useless. Can the two learn to find common ground in their search to understand the supernatural mysteries unfolding around them?

Only slightly similar due to the fantasy element and solid OTP romance (no real complications from side characters) between a "goddess" high school student and her protector. The mythology based on animism and shinto culture is also slightly similar.


Shrines, temples, supernatural beings, protectors, and magical powers are the mainstays of both Red Data Girl and Kamisama Hajimemashita.  Although both involve and female lead and male protectors, Kamisama falls into the reverse harem genre.  Both main characters have powers they are struggling to understand and are confronted by the knowledge that the very fate of the world rests on their actions.  The characters come together in each to overcome obstacles, help each other, and develop bonds of trust, loyalty and friendship.


Both deal with spirits and temples.  The two first don't get along, but over time they take an interest with each other, and the guy's job is to protect the girl. 


If you liked the mix of supernatural/otherworldly elements and light romance in either RDG or Kamisama Hajimemashita, the other will offer a very similar atmosphere. Fans of one will likely appreciate the other.

Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha.

Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha.

Inari Fushimi is a middle school girl who's never had a requited love, since she's a shy, clumsy and not very bright. One day, she witnesses her crush Kouji giving a letter to her classmate Akemi. Shocked and saddened, Inari rushes to a shrine, where the goddess Uka-no-Mitama-no-Kami appears to her. As thanks for saving a fox pup, as well as out of pity for her plight, the goddess grants Inari the power to shape-shift.

Both are of the shoujo genre, where girl meets deity and her life is no longer the same. Kamisama Hajimemashita is a bit different as the girl begins to have feelings for the deity she meets while Inari Konkon's girl-to-deity relationship is pure friendship only, but do not fear, Inari Konkon has its own special romance too. They have similar comedy, very pretty animation, and share somewhat of the same atmosphere, so you'll definitely want to check both of them out. 


Inari and Kamisama have similar lead characters, both are marvellously adourned by traditional themes, clothes and customs. You will love the series just by the beautiful clothes. Both contain a heart-squeezingly good amount of romance, I strongly recommend both.

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.


The personalities of the main characters are the same but switched, where Tomoe was thick headed and in denial about his growing feelings for Nanami, the same is said for Misaki avoiding her attraction to Usui while he was actively trying to pursuade her of his affections. The style of the art in this anime is very similar and generally this anime has the same feeling of "I need to know what happens next" excitement. Though I would say this anime is more of a reverse harem than Maid-sama is, that isn't a main theme throughout the shows.
