Kamisama Kiss

Kamisama Kiss

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 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.

snivets snivets says...

Kamisama Hajimemashita and Inari, Konkon are both about a girl with Shinto god powers. Supernatural shenanigans, cute crushes, and some comedic moments to fluff them up—both of these are light & easy watches. If you liked either show, you won’t want to miss the other!

The main characters in both anime obtain some divine power and struggle with it. They both have familiars, are school age girls and have similar personalities.

Kamichu!

Along with Yurie’s faithful best friend Mitsue, the trio set forth on an adventure to find out what it really means to become a goddess.

If you want a short, adorable anime all about cute middle school girls who suddenly gain god-like powers, then look no further! Not only are they all about the interactions of shinto Gods, middle school girls, and their friends, both also have a fair bit of romance at the heart of the story! Not to mention fun familiars, characters that will make you laugh, and a sweet slice of life story that, if it's your thing, you will adore. Both shows are so strikingly similar, and if you like one you will definitely want to check out the other!

snivets snivets says...

Both Kamichu! and Inari, Konkon’s main characters are granted the powers of a Shinto god. They must learn to manage their new powers while juggling busy school life, friendships, festivals, and crushes. These two shows are peas in a pod! If you enjoyed one, go check out the other.

kenikki kenikki says...

A middle-school girl gets thrown into the world of spirits and gods while dealing with regular life issues, such as her friends and her love interest.

That explains them both fairly accurate.

Kamichu is more of a mix of Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha & Natsume Yuujinchou while Inari[...] is more of a mix of Kamichu and a typical shoujo school romance.

Hotarubi no Mori e

Hotarubi no Mori e

Though they are barred from physical contact, the two become close friends. But after a few short years it becomes apparent that Gin ages more slowly than humans, so while Hotaru is growing up and changing, Gin remains in stasis. How will Hotaru adapt to the complicated emotions she develops as her and Gin's ages gradually converge?

Both anime have mortals interacting with gods. Although Inari Konkon has not finished at the time of writing, it has been mentioned in the show how mortals are bound to die and leave their god friends behind. Hotarubi focuses very strongly on that theme. Both also have pretty animation and romance!

Aarjerm Aarjerm says...

Contain myth anime thatnyou can't effort but i think its a good choice the reason is the anime type myth same so yes i agree

doggylue08 doggylue08 says...

Very similar indeed. I watched Hotarubi no Mori e... CRIED IN THE END, RAN THROUGH A TISSUE BOX PRETTY QUICKLY. I finished the watching the anime of Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha and finished reading the manga... CRIED IN THE END. 

Prepare yourself some tissue boxes in the end of the manga of Inari and at the end of Hotarubi no Mori e.

But if you're a person like me and doesn't like bittersweet endings,  I don't suggest watching Hotarubi no Mori e. Though Inari did have a really bittersweet ending too.

Both animes focus on love between immortal and a mortal and how their romance works out.

Karasune Karasune says...

Both are shoujo series that share a similar Shino-theme of a young girl being able to see Inari deities. The characters really drive the shows with their delightful interactions and unique charms. Inari Konkon deals with more romance and some drama while Gingitsune is more of a relaxed and mellow watch, but fans of one will probably be able to appreciate the other.

Bronia Bronia says...

Both are all about the relationship between a mortal and the devine, and both also spend a lot of time focusing on interactions outside of the shrine, too. Inari Konkon has more romance thrown in, but Gingitsune is more informative on shrines. Gingitsune and Inari both balance telling the stories of the divine folks and the mortal folks very well and have casts full of fun characters.

FireWalker FireWalker says...

Both these series focus on a girl in her early teens going through some growing pains. Romance is an element in both, but there is also a strong emphasis on relations with other characters (friends and mentors), who are in turn presented with considerable depth. Both series are visually appealing with frequent depiction of traditional Japanese architecture and costume as elements in a modern setting. Inari relies on supernatural elements, while Hana-Saka Iroha is much more realistic, but both tell a good story well. If you liked one, I recommend trying the other. 

Kimi ni Todoke - From Me To You

Kimi ni Todoke - From Me To You

Sawako Kuronuma is just like any other high school girl who wants to make friends and be useful. The only problem is she bears a worrying resemblance to Sadako from 'The Ring!' Because of her reputation, people are not only terrified of her, but small dogs even bark in fear at her presence; in fact, the only person in school who will talk to her is the lively class hottie, Kazehaya. As the pair spends more time together, Kazehaya slowly begins to bring Sawako out of her shell and soon their feelings for each other develop further. Though with her crippling insecurities, lack of social skills, and a series of cruel rumors and misunderstandings, it seems that Sawako's dream of a normal life won’t be quite so easy to obtain.

Momokuri

Momokuri

However, she is in fact a maniac over Momo, taking notes of his activities and never missing the chance to see him in a cute moment. Momo, on the other hand, is inexperienced in love, and just wants to make Yuki happy.

Both of these shows contain the storyline where the main heroine has a giant crush on the male lead. Differences are Inari Kon Kon is more fantasy (I guess)-oriented whereas Momokuri is more a down to earth slice-of-life (but still a comedy), and Inari isn't as stalkish and/or obsessive as Kurihara.

Nekogami Yaoyorozu

Nekogami Yaoyorozu

Meet Mayu. She's a cat god, but because she couldn't stop getting in trouble, she's been cast down from the heavens and is now doomed to suffer on Earth! Oh, no! But then, one day, she is taken in by the earnest and kind Yuzu, who owns an antiques shop called Antiques Unlimited. As Yuzu is quick to learn, Mayu's laziness knows no bounds. She'd rather play video games than turn over a new leaf. The everyday tales of this cat god and her harrowing adventures to the candy shop, a landfill, and a beach resort show Mayu and her friends that sometimes, the simplest things in life are the best. There is also Gonta, who is obsessed with Yuzu, but Mayu wanted his role in this summary to be minimal. So there you have it.
