Synopsis:

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!

Elfen Lied

Elfen Lied

For Kouta and Yuka, finding the bloody naked young girl on the beach would change their lives forever, for better or for worse. Unable to speak or function as a normal human being, she is named Nyu by the duo, and taken into their home in an effort to save her. But what neither teenager knows is that this innocent young girl is actually a killing machine -- an experiment gone terribly wrong -- and it is only a matter of time before the murderer in her awakens again...

doomsday

Though they aren't in the same genre, Kannagi and Elfen Lied are uncannily alike in a sense. They both feature a boy living by himself with an over protective childhood friend checking up on him all the time. They also both proceed to have a strange girl enter their life and move in with them followed by additional girls every few episodes. Of course the over protective childhood friend doesn't like this at all, so she more less moves in too.

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.

Mayoi Neko Overrun!

Mayoi Neko Overrun!

Having lived in the same orphanage as children, Takumi Tsuzuki and Fumino Serizawa grew up together and remain fast friends. Now living and working at a bakery, Takumi does his best to prevent catastrophe, particularly when the clumsy Otome is in the kitchen! He attends school with Fumino and is still the only person capable of reading through her baffling habit of hiding her emotions by saying exactly the opposite to what she means. However, the arrival on the scene of enigmatic catgirl Nozomi may force Fumino to be more honest with her feelings than she is used to - or perhaps even able to. This, along with a host of crazy friends and associates such as the stuck-up Chise and the otaku Ieyasu, ensures that there is rarely a dull moment in their lives!

Each series focuses on a guy, finding an odd girl, and a lot of other girls that already have feelings for him. Apart from that, many of the females in each series have a similar back story and personality, and each series is a comedy  that has a lot to do with otakuism.

Shakugan no Shana

Shakugan no Shana

Sakai Yuuji thought he was a normal high school student, until one fateful day when time stopped. Watching in horror, he witnesses a monster devouring the "frozen" people around him; but luckily for Yuuji, he is saved by a sword-wielding red-headed girl that calls herself a "Flame Haze". The girl informs him that he has been dead for some time now and that his current self is merely a replacement for the human that he used be while alive. He is, she says, merely a torch whose life will come to an end when the blue flame in his chest ceases to burn. After this rude awakening, Yuuji realizes that he is able to see the flames of life in other "torches"; and after discovering that a friend of his is also a torch -- and her life is burning out faster than his – he gains the courage to live out the rest of his life with meaning. Will Yuuji be able to find his place in the world before he ceases to exist?

These series each follow goddesses with a mission to help stop the fights between other gods/demons. These series both have forum antics and light comedy, so you're likely to enjoy the other if you liked one of them.
