However, when Rikka discovers his past life as the "Dark Flame Master", she uses this to her advantage to include him in all of her wacky schemes! With Rikka’s zany behavior dragging him further and further from normalcy, Yuuta must try to pull her back into the real world – or risk getting sucked into hers!

Yui Kusanagi discovers a mighty sword that transports her to another world. There, this ordinary high school girl finds herself face-to-face with the mighty Greek god Zeus, who has an unusual request: remain in the dimension he has created and attend a school of legendary proportions. Zeus acts as dean for a school of young, misguided gods. The bond between humans and gods has weakened, and it is now up to Yui to teach the gods about love and what it means to be human.
On the surface the similarities between Kamigami and Kobato seem like a stretch. Both Yui and Kobato have talking stuffed animals with unexpecteldy masculine voices (Ioryogi and Melissa). However, the theme of both shows is surprisingly similar. Kobato's quest is to heal broken hearts and Yui's is to help the gods become connected to humans. Kobato has to fill the jar with hearts/confetti and Yui has to help the gods remove their shackles (in the form of jewelry). Both girls do these things by listening to their struggles and being a good friend. Both girls are also thrown into unknown worlds. Kobato into our world and Yui into a garden of the gods. Kobato is definitely more naiive than Yui, although they both struggle in these new places. Also, both girls have intimidating "bosses" to answer to (Ioryogi and Zeus and Thoth), they all have the girls' and the peoples' interests at heart but they can come off as scary and heartless at times.
