While Demon King Daimao is more of the echhi variety, both it and Blue Exorcist have a lot in common. Both protagonists are essentially outcasts in their societies because of what they are. They can't help what they are - only who they are and how they use their powers. Both revolve around the protagonists and their core group of friends in a school setting. Both have nice animation, lots of humor, and good action sequences. Two very enjoyable and similar series.
Both anime are about a boy that is thrust into a demonic lineage against his will, and that boy's struggle to fight against what fate has intended for them.
Just like Blue Exorcist, Demon King Daimao us about a young man who was born in demon origin, but doesn't want to follow it.
On the eve of nobleman Oz Bezarius's fifteenth birthday, he and his loved ones gather to celebrate in a coming-of-age ceremony. But after Oz steps under a long-stopped clock and the hands finally move once more - thus fulfilling a mysterious prophecy - he is violently thrown into the legendary prison known as the Abyss by three cloaked intruders. Existing in another dimension, the Abyss is home to lifeforms born within its walls known as Chains; these beings can only live in the real world if they make contracts with humans, binding their power to the person's body. However, there's a catch - in time, the human will be overcome by the Chain's power and then thrown into the deepest level of the Abyss. When Oz wakes up in the Abyss he is quickly attacked by hungry Chains, only to be saved by one named Alice - a Chain who appeared just before he was thrown into the prison. Together, the two make a contract and return to the real world, where they are enlisted into the Pandora organization - a group researching both the Abyss and the trio that threw Oz into it. Along with members of Pandora, the duo searches to find Alice's lost memory fragments that are scattered throughout the world, to discover the secrets of the Abyss, and to determine if there's a way their contract can be broken without killing either Oz or Alice.
Both anime have lots of action and involve demons and other world. The both have plot twists and are both really good anime.
Both of these series combine action and comedy into a fun-filled roll of goodly animation. If you enjoyed one, you'll enjoy the other, though they take place in two very different timeframes.
both are mostly focused on fantasy and mystery, with a lot of drama, plot twists, misterious characters, a bit of romance and of course comedy.

As such, his only dream is to become the Hokage - the most powerful ninja, and leader of the village; but first he needs to graduate! With his inability to perform even the most basic ninja techniques, it seems that all Naruto has going for him is his determination to succeed no matter what.

Both series focus on male lead characters that have qualities about themselves that they have no control over. Naruto with the demon fox, and Rin is Satan's son. Both characters are hunted and mistreated in similar ways. Naruto and Rin also strive towards the better side of their humanity and fight to protect people they love. They also have similar goal sets that are very long term - Naruto wants to be Hokage, and Rin wants to defeat Satan. Both of these goals are nobel and very hard to obtain. If you like(d) Blue Exorcist or Naruto i would series check whatever series you haven't seen out.
Both are centered around "demon" children who don't quite belong and are finding their way in some sort of academy/school. For those who like shounen action animes, these two are pretty similar except for their run time.
The setting and feel of the two series are vastly different, but both have two brothers fighting demons and supernatural powers. The main villians in both series is Satan (Lucifer). Also, one of the brothers in both series shares a similar fate.
Ao no Exorcist is mainstream shounen, while Supernatural is definitely seinen. However, if you like one, you'll like the other.
If you enjoy brothers fighting against demons look no further than these 2 titles. Plenty of action, drama, and hearache to be found in both. Supernatural is aimed at an older audience but I'm sure you'll appreciate one if you enjoyed the other.
