Both Kamisama Kiss and Shinobi Life showcase the developing relationship between a "protector"-like figure and a girl who is unfamiliar to his lifestyle. Simiarly, both manga deal with the concerns of the lead heroine, and the past lover of the main character.Both manga have fairly established OTPs, though Kamisama Kiss has more humor and supernatural elements than Shinobi Life (which is fairly realistic apart from the central 'timetravel' aspect).

First off, I'll state that these two manga (Shinobi Life and Kamisama Hajimemashita) are in my top ten of all time... thus I may be biased. =) But, if you feel the same, read on: What they have in common:

- The stories both revolve around the couple and their developing relationship.

- Both girls in each story have the male as the protecting figure. In the case of Shinobi it's obviously a ninja, and in the case of Kamisama a fox demon.

- Both girls in each story have trouble adapting to the lifestyle of their male counterpart.

- Both stories have wonderful art, coming from someone who's very picky, and the bishies are lovely.

- Both stories deal with the past of the male counterpart. I won't spoil it for you. =)

- Both can get a little difficult to follow if you skip through or, in my case, have one too many cocktails during your reading session.

Differences:

- Kamisama has more humor and is more lighthearted.

- Kamisama is a little bit more "episodic" than Shinobi, but still neatly carries the plot.

- Shinobi has many more historical elements, which gives it a more realistic air (aside from the time traveling of course).

Both stories start off basically the same.

The main girls (Nanami in Kamisama Hajimemashita and Yume in Momo) are quite similar. They are both kindhearted girls who got abandoned by their irresponsible fathers but who don’t give up their hope and try to somehow get along with their situation. They meet someone who changes their lives (Nanami meets Mikage and Yume meets Momo) and turns them from an ordinary girl into something extraordinary (Nanami into a land god and Yume into the earth’s representative). At the beginning they’re both a bit gullible about their new role and have to prove themselves to others who think that they’re not suited for the job or don’t fit the image. Through their new role they also meet some possible love interests.

In the end, I enjoyed both mangas and I had the same feeling while reading them even through there are also many differences.

While Kamisama Hajimemashita has a lot of Japanese folklore in it, Momo has its very own version of devils which have little to do with the devils from the myths. But all in all I think that if you liked one, you should at least check out the other.

InuYasha

InuYasha

Kagome was just a normal girl, until one day she fell into a well that brought her to feudal-era Japan. After encountering hordes of demons and discovering that she's the reincarnation of a priestess, Kagome must now journey to protect a sacred jewel from evil with the help of a half-demon named Inuyasha. Along the way they make many enemies and friends, and travel between the modern and feudal eras.

If you're familiar with this manga, you've probably heard this before, but Kamisama Kiss and Inuyasha have many similarities that go beyond the genre of "supernatural" and having youkai.Both are, at the very heart, romance stories. And the leads are very entertaining in their banter.Fans of more recent shojo might favor Kamisama Kiss, due to style or personality. Inuyasha is one of those romance mangas that are tailored to being both "shonen" and "shojo" like...

Both series are about a girl who becomes closely entwined with a shrine, and the otherworldly being who are tied to it. The heroine in each case does not merely clean up the shrine, but she takes an active role in fulfilling the wishes & prayers of those who visit.
