Synopsis:

Kakeru Daichi is an openly perverted sixteen-year-old boy who has never had a girlfriend. One night, after a refreshing shower, the boy decides to have a drink and opens up a can of melon soda; but his first sip turns into his first kiss as the can suddenly transforms into a cute girl! After his initial hesitance to acknowledge her existence, Kakeru - as her new owner - names the girl Melon and allows her to stay. Melon, as it turns out, is part of a government project in which aluminium and steel 'Akikans' fight each other to determine which is the superior type of can. Completely against the idea, Kakeru insists that Melon will not fight. Though with the appearance of Budoko, a grape juice Akikan; and Yell, a sports-drink Akikan; it seems that they won’t be able to avoid the battles forever.

AIKa Zero

AIKa Zero

Recently, beautiful girls have begun to disappear from a local high school, and it’s up to Aika to go undercover and determine the reason. Alongside Karen, who can’t seem to stop herself from looking up recently-defeated enemies’ skirts, Aika investigates the white-wearing school council and discovers that they’re abducting all beauties for mysterious purposes – and it has something to do with beams of light that emanate from the evildoers’ bodies. Who are these villains, and what do they want with all of these voluptuous, shapely girls?

Both of these shows have a main character that suddenly has to cope with having a strange, and cute, girl thrust into their homes and lives.  Also, both shows feature openly perverted boys in the forms of Kakeru and Fukuyama. While there are differences in the series, if you liked the ecchi nature and somewhat pointless plot of one, then you may well enjoy the other.

Konjiki no Gash Bell!!

Konjiki no Gash Bell!!

Takamine Kiyomaro is a junior high school student who thinks he’s too smart for school, to the disappointment of his mother. On his 14th birthday a surprise literally crashes through Kiyomaro’s window, in the form of… a small naked child?! His name is Gash Bell and his goal is simple: be a mentor for Kiyomaro, at the request of Kiyomaro’s departed father. In return, Kiyomaro must help discover the secrets behind Gash Bell’s amnesia and his past, with only a red book as a clue. As if things weren’t crazy enough, Kiyomaro soon discovers that Gash Bell is a demon -- one of many on Earth -- who can be forced back to the demon world if its corresponding book is burned. Armed with the power of the red book, Kiyomaro must now help Gash Bell defend himself against other demons who want to vanquish him from the Earth, lest his newfound friend vanish forever!

Both of these anime deal with humans teaming up with a preternatural being to participate in a battle to decide the strongest among the said beings. Although Zatch Bell has zero ecchiness, if you enjoyed the fighting and the plot for Akikan!, you will find Zatch Bell to be agreeable.

Sekirei ~Pure Engagement~

Sekirei ~Pure Engagement~

As the first stage of the Sekirei Plan, Minato Sahashi and his team of buxom beauties enjoy a small respite from the insane machinations of the MBI, but all good things must come to an end. At the whim of the crazed President Minaka, Musubi, Tsukiumi, Matsu, and Kusano find themselves drawn into the search for the final unwinged sekirei, a battle royale, and the scheming of other ashikabis. At the center of it all, Minato still tries desperately to keep all sekirei - both his and others - from harm, but how long can his ideals stand up to the realities of this cruel game?

Both animes are all about the Master obedience and the slave, mostly girls, battling it out until the very end, if there will be one?Well, watch and you find out:)Akikan: The boy wants it, the girl doesn't as much.There's one servant for the master.Sekirei: The other way around.Multiple servants.I will just have to say that if you watched Sekirei and plan to watch Akikan for and equaly good story and as much naked skin you might be disappointed.But if you watched Akikan and are looking for something in the same kind of anime style but (in my opinion) a little bit better then Sekirei ~Pure Engagement~ is perfectBut if you plan to watch Sekirei ~Pure Engagement~ watch Sekirei first since that is the prequel;)

Tokyo Mew Mew

If you liked Tokyo Mew Mew you'd probably like Akikan! (and vice versa) as both are about girls who can transform (although one is turning into animals...) and end up fighting for reasons beyond their control. As well as this, the colour schemes are also nearly identical (Melon and Lettuce, Yell and Mint, Budoko and Zakuro, Miku and Ichigo)
