Anime About God

There are thousands of gods and other spiritual creatures believed to be in Japan. 

This article will discuss the most popular anime featuring gods and other spirit creatures, both from Japan and the West.

While the existence of God is a subject of debate, this list of God anime series does not attempt to influence your beliefs. 

These God anime series are suitable for all faiths: agnostics and believers, as well as those who don’t believe in God.

In anime, gods are seen as beings with special powers but also has flaws. The mythologies of gods are often used to inspire anime.

They also include background information and historical details. It can also be a learning experience.

This article will include a list of the most popular god-themed anime. It will then be followed by a comprehensive list of anime that focuses on deities. 

Keep in mind that there is much other anime with Gods. Please leave your comments.

13. Kamigami no Asobi

Kamigami no Asobi is an anime that was adapted from an otome.

Kusanagi Yui, the main character of the story, is summoned by Zeus the Greek god to make her a member of a school for gods. 

Yui was summoned to show other gods how it feels to be human. 

It will increase their understanding of humans and will bring them closer together.

This anime is a reverse harem and the male casts are gods.

They are clearly eye candy. They are gods but they have flaws just like humans. 

There are many types of gods from different cultures.

For example, there are Greek gods and Egyptian gods. 

Each one has a distinct personality, which makes them seem like they aren’t that different from humans personality-wise.

12. Death Note

Shinigami is a God of death, can kill anyone by writing his victim’s name into a Death Note notebook. 

Ryuki becomes bored with his shinigami routine and takes an interest in people, leaving the Death Note to Light Yagami.

The light uses this divine power to rid the world of all criminals and create a new one. 

He would be revered as a god in this new world. The police discovered quickly that the serial killer was killing criminals.

Japanese detectives work with the most skilled detectives in the world to find the culprit. 

L is an eccentric man who goes by the name Light.

The anime depicts the plot between Light, his notebook, and a useless Shinigami and L and their task force.

11. Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha (Inari, Kon Kon)

Fushimi Inari, a shy, clumsy, and awkward girl, has a crush upon a boy, just like many girls her age. 

Fushimi’s crush is on the kind-hearted Kouji Takabaashi. 

But she can’t bring herself to admit it to him. 

Inari saves a fox pup and the shrine god Ukanomitama no-kami gives her the ability to transform into other humans.

We get to see Inari’s use of the power granted by Ukanomitama no-kami to learn more about the world. 

Although it’s fun to have this godlike ability, it doesn’t mean we can solve all our problems. 

Even Ukanomitama no-kami, the shrine god, has her own problems.

10. Dungeon Ni Deai wo Motomeru No Wa Machigatteiru Darou ka?

Is it wrong to try to pick up girls in a dungeon?

The anime takes place in Orario, where adventurers come together to search for treasures underground in the Dungeon.

Bell Cranel is not interested in fame or wealth, but he does want to find girls. 

However, he soon realizes that anything can happen at the Dungeon, and ends up becoming the damsel-in-distress!

Strangely, many anime of gods, even ones of action, contain a lot of comedy

This subtitle shows what we managed. 

This list includes anime that feature deities with a lot of humour or that show less than once a day.

9. Kamichu! (The Goddess is a Middle School Students)

Kamichu

Yurie Hitotsubashi is just like any middle school student, struggling with teenage problems such as exams and confessing her feelings to her crush. 

She tells her friends one day that she suddenly became a god overnight. 

Her friends called her kamichu.

This is a combination of the words ‘kami’, which means god, ‘chugakusei, which means middle school student, and ‘chugakusei, which means goddess. 

Yurie is a god and a person who learns and improves throughout the series.

What is a god supposed to do? Yurie, now a god with a newfound divinity, can do the same things as gods like making wishes come true and curing curses.

 It seems that even meeting aliens is one of God’s responsibilities! 

Although the idea of a god is conjured up images of being powerful, flawless, and graceful, Yurie, who is still clumsy, does not seem to have any of those qualities.

8. Spice and Wolf

Spice and Wolf

A young man discovers in his wagon Holo, a goddess over 600 years of age. 

Holo is a young human except that he has ears and tails similar to wolves.

She is the goddess of harvests.

After making a promise to a villager in the past, she revealed that she was the one who blessed the village with plentiful wheat crops for many decades.

Villagers are losing faith in Holo, and they are developing their own farming methods, which allows them to become independent. 

Holo feels no need to be with the residents and is becoming isolated.

7. Kannagi (Kannagi: Crazy Shrine Maidens)

Kannagi

Jin Murikiya is Jin’s male protagonist

Unknowingly, he creates a sculpture of a girl using the trunk of a sacred tree. 

The sculpture transforms into Nagi, a goddess who suffers amnesia. 

She is angry at Jin for cutting down the sacred tree and she needs his help to remove the impurities from the area that have increased as a result of the tree being cut down. 

Jin has a determination to trace Nagi’s past due to her amnesia.

Although goddesses may sound elegant, Nagi is a childish being. 

Nagi is forced to live with Jin as the goddess is demanding and lazy. 

This goddess has a serious side, however, as Kannagi shows her serious side.

It fits the expectations of a goddess. 

Jin falls in love slowly with the goddess, who has a split personality.

6. Konosuba

Konosuba

Kazuma Sato, a hikikomori teenager, meets a goddess named Aqua.

She offers to take him to a parallel world, similar to an MMORPG controlled and managed by a Demon King.

He can live there and fight monsters.

Kazuma offers Aqua a superpowered item or a superpower, but Aqua refuses to go with him to Axel in the parallel universe. 

Aqua is ineffective!

5. Campione!: Matsurowanu Kamigami to Kamigoroshi no Maou (Campione!)

Campione!

Godou Kusanagi is made the Campione (or god slayer) after defeating the God Of War. 

As a god slayer, his task is to defeat Heretical Gods who are out of control. 

He is a god slayer and attracts many admiring girls. 

Erica Blandelli is particularly interested in Godou and creates awkward situations for him.

This anime is a harem, but it also contains ecchi

This series is focused on polytheism and features gods from different cultures.

It also provides information about these gods. 

Warrior is a feature that allows gods to battle.

It relies on how much information they have about their opponents to win. 

The gods can also be informed by girls kissing each other!

4. Kamisama Kiss

Kamisama Kiss

Kamisama kiss is a shoujo that combines comedy and romance

Nanami is a young girl who was forced from her home by her gambling father.

She abandoned her and fled with many debts.

Nanami is walking the streets when she meets a man.

He learns about Nanami’s history and offers Nanami a place to call home.

It is an abandoned temple where she becomes the deity.

3. Aa! Megami-sama (Oh! My Goddess)

Aa! Megami-sama

Keiichi Morisato may be unlucky, but he is a kind and generous person. 

He is a college student and has to care for the dorm while his senpais go. 

He is nearing the end of his last chore and wants to call his Senpai,

but he accidentally dials The Goddess Help Line instead. 

Belldandy, the goddess, asks Keiichi if he has any wishes.

He jokes that he wants her to stay forever with him.

This series’ concept of gods or goddesses is loosely based upon Norse and Celtic mythology. 

There are many categories, restrictions and classes of goddesses. 

Goddesses are intended to bring joy to all people, particularly those who have kind hearts. 

The series features demons and angels as well as goddesses. 

If you are looking for a romantic series that features a goddess as the lead, this series is it!

2. Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai (The World God Only Knows)

Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai

Keima Katsuragi, a high school student, is obsessed with galge games that are focused on interactions between eye-catching anime-style girls. 

Due to his extraordinary skills in conquering 2D girls online, he is called the God of Conquest. 

He accepts an anonymous challenge he thinks is a game.

Then he is assigned to help Elsie the demon, and make girls fall in love.

Keima Katsuragi may not be a god as he is an online gamer, but some goddesses play a key role in this series. 

The six goddesses called the Jupiter Sisters were named after Jupiter, a Roman god. 

Each goddess has her own unique ability, which is sort of like the Sailor Guardians in the Sailor Moon series.

1. Noragami

Noragami

Yato is a minor God who wants many worshippers. 

Yato is such a small god that there aren’t any shrines dedicated to him. 

He charges 5 yen per job to get more people to come to him. 

The weapon partner becomes bored with him and leaves. 

Hiyori Iki, a young girl, takes Yato’s hit in an accident.

Her soul becomes attached to her body and she demands Yato fix it.

One would never have thought that gods could go unnoticed and offer their services for a very low price. 

Although gods are created out of the desires of people, it seems that many people have forgotten the gods they desire. 

Noragami has many elements from Buddhism and Shinto.

If you are looking for anime with a god- or goddess-themed theme, these are the series we recommend. 

You will learn a lot about different gods from the various cultures in most of these series. 

This anime may make you more spiritual.
