Synopsis: Kagome Higurashi is a fifteen-year-old girl living a normal life until a demon dragged her inside the Bone Eater’s Well. Kagome was thrown 500 years to the feudal era. Shortly after arriving, she learned the Sacred Jewel of Four Souls was inside her body, and was targeted by demons. After accidentally shattering it, Kagome and Inuyasha must start their journey to gather the fragments before they fall into the wrong hands. Joining them on their quest is the fox-demon Shippo, the monk Miroku, the demon slayer Sango, and let’s not forget the cowardly flea, Myoga.
Similarities: Rin and Inuyasha are half human and half demon, and are judged because of it. Feeling like they have no where to belong, both are hot headed and can lose their temper at times. Both of them ended up picking the human side, and fight with their friends to achieve their goal.
Synopsis: Yato is a god who dreams of having millions of worshipers. There’s just one small problem with that. He has no shrines of his own, making his goal far from being achieved. He does odd jobs every day for five yen, but things go downhill when his weapon was fed up with his behavior, and decided to leave him. His luck changes when a human girl, Hiyori Iki, takes a hit from a car to save him. She somehow survives, but her soul is able to leave her body. Yato isn’t able to help her without a new weapon, so she decides to help him.
Similarities: Both series focus on the supernatural setting. Blue Exorcist focuses on demons, and Noragami focuses on gods. Yato isn’t exactly the greatest with people, similar to Rin, whose social skills could be improved.
