También puedes leer este artículo en:Español

Who hasn’t dreamed or fantasized about what it would be like to be immortal, be it a god or any other high being. An interesting take on all of this is just what Kamigami no Asobi does throughout its plot. The protagonist is a human high school girl who has been summoned by the old gods in the name of teaching. They want to learn more about humans and what it means to be one, instead of an immortal god. This is also to bring the two worlds closer together.

It’s a creative, interesting and unique kind of story when compared to all the other anime out there. It gets even more interesting when they throw the reverse harem genre into the mix. Who knows what can happen?

So let’s take a look at the recommendations!

Similar Anime to Kamigami no Asobi

Similar Anime to Kamigami no Asobi

1. Uta no Prince Sama

  • Episodes: 13
  • Aired: July 3, 2011 – September 24, 2011

Haruka dreams of becoming a composer and writing songs for her favorite idol. So she enters the Saotome Academy, a school for performing arts. Her dream won’t be easy to achieve. Uta no Prince Sama is a coming-of-age romantic comedy with sweet music for any fan of the idol scene.

The similarities these anime share is the reverse harem style they both focus on. We can also see some more similarities in the fact that the main character of both is a girl who teaches each male character a lesson. Both anime take place at a school and there’s romance involved, even if the anime doesn’t hint at dating. That’s why both anime have comedy revolving around the things the boys do. Both anime have a cool style with bright and colourful scenes.

2. Diabolik Lovers

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: September 16, 2013 - December 9, 2013

Yui Komori had the ability to see dead people, spirits, poltergeists and other spooky creatures. But what is about to happen is way more scary than those kinds of things. Firstly, she’s forced to transfer to a different school. It turns out that what she thought was her history is very different from what is actually true. She also has a new family who is waiting for her.

The points that are similar to both anime are the reverse harem style both anime have. Other similarities include the fact that the main character has the same name: Yui. And in both anime, the main protagonist has to deal with tough boys that attend the same school. The main difference between Kamigami no Asobi and Diabolik Lovers might be the fact that one is slice of life and the other is more of a horror themed anime.

3. Kamisama Hajimemashita (Kamisama Kiss)

  • Episodes: 13
  • Aired: October 2, 2012 – December 25, 2012

Life isn’t so bright for Nanami Momozono, she’s alone and has nowhere to go after her good-for-nothing dad leaves her and skips town, in order to run from his gambling debts. Nanami is kicked out of the apartment by the debt collectors and there’s just no bright future for Nanami. One day, when she saves a man from a dog, he offers her his home and of course she doesn’t say no to a roof over her head. But it turns out that this so-called home is a shrine and without any questions asked, Nanami has taken over his job as a local deity.

The first similarity is, of course, the god theme which revolves around both anime. After that, we have the reverse harem, cute male characters who never fail to make the audience smile. And on top of that they have interesting personalities which will keep you wanting more after each episode. We have a female lead in each anime but Nanami is a much stronger character than Yui. Both anime introduce humans as not being as weak as the gods think. This anime is quite different from your normal kind of anime because of the location and theme of a Japanese shrine. Definitely worth the watch.

4. Kiniro no Corda: Primo Passo

  • Episodes: 25
  • Aired: October 2, 2006 – March 26, 2007

Kahoko Hino is a student at a school which is split into two groups: the Normal Group in which all the students wear grey school uniforms, and the Music Group, there the students wear white uniforms. At this school, they have a tradition in the form of a music competition. In this competition, it’s common for the Music Group to be chosen to compete. Kahoko is quite surprised when she meets a fairy called Lili. She is so surprised because she is the only student at the school who can see him. In addition, she is the only student from the Normal Group who has been chosen for the competition.

In both these anime, we have a strong-willed girl, with five boys who are quite fond of her. In each anime, the main protagonist has a cute little helper who helps them to do the right thing. Other similarities include the reverse harem and the fact that characters from both anime are similar in a lot of ways, with a similar story.

5. Brothers Conflict

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: July 2, 2013 - September 17, 2013

Hinata Ema is the daughter of the famous adventurer, Hinata Rintarou. Ema learns that Rintarou is going to remarry with the successful Asahina Miwa. Ema doesn’t want to be a bother so she moves out and starts to live with her 13 new brothers in a mansion called Sunrise Residence. While living with only boys, romance is starting to show between Ema and the Asahina brothers.

There are a few similarities between both anime. Firstly we have the main female protagonist who is madly in love. Each protagonist also has some problems getting along with the other male characters in each anime, as well as with finding out who it is they really love. A small difference between Ema and Yui is the fact that Yui seems to be more brave and intelligent when compared to other female leads in typical reverse harem anime.

6. Amnesia

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: January 7, 2013 - March 25, 2013

The anime takes place in a fictional town, country and in a fictional world. One morning, a young girl wakes up with no memory of where she is, nor who she is. Everything is gone. All she has is a cellphone number with names she doesn’t recognize. She also sees this young boy, Orion, and it seems like she is the only one who can see him. All she can do is make new memories, when everything she once knew is gone.

Both of these anime have the similarity of being reverse harem anime. We have a female leading character who gets into contact with hot male characters. Other similarities would be that all the male characters fall in love with the main female protagonist. Some small difference between the anime would be that Kamigami no Asobi is about gods while in Amnesia, the story is about the main female character having lost her memories.

And there you have it! A few interesting and hopefully inspiring recommendations. It’s interesting to see harems from the reverse perspective, with the a girl as the main character, and seeing how the story progresses. Anyhow, I hope it was a fun read and until next time, look out for the reverse harems!
