In a post-apocalyptic world overrun with great beasts called Filth Monsters, a glimmering dome protrudes from the wasteland. This is Zuellni, a mobile city unique for having a consciousness in the form of ‘electronic fairies’. Moreover, Zuellni is an academy where the next generation of powerful Heavens-Blade wielders gather to pit their strength against each other in inter-platoon competitions. Nina Antalk, military student and leader of the 17th Platoon, is intent on recruiting only the best; thus, when mysterious Layfon Alseif transfers to the academy, she instantly recognizes his abilities and decides he’s the perfect candidate to join her group. However, with a secret past that won’t leave him alone, and unknown powers beyond the academy taking an interest in Zuellni, Layfon joining the team is only the start of all their troubles.

Well, both are from the same creators and feature strong main leads.The main character is pretty strong but doesn't want to fight. Denyuden is more light hearted than chrome shelled regious, still if you like one you should like the other


Both shows may be in different types of worlds but they both contain the same kind of main characters. Each male lead is skilled at fighting but does not want to fight and is supported by a strong female lead that cares for him.


Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu and Chrome shelled regios are pretty similar in story, charakter and fightinstyle. However chrome shelled regious has one major annoying point: there is a matrix like substory in every episode which has nothing to do whatsoever with the story itsself and it's realy bad. If not for this substory 5 out of 5 but with this load of crap 3 out of 5. Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu however is just great and you will love it.


I just finished watching The Legend of the Legendary Heroes after seeing it recommended on here. I did enjoy it. There is the similar  aspect of the reluctant hero in both shows. AND, both shows leave you hoping that there will be a second season. Saly, both disappoint in that regard. No new season for Chrome Shelled Regios or TLOTLH. Still worth a watch though!


Both series involves a very strong male lead that has a "tsundere that doesn't show a bit of -dere" kind of a girl by his side...

and both series has quite the same when it comes to their endings, which I don't like, at all..

watch them both and you'll know what I mean..


both main charecters have a drark past and save the day  the diffrence is one magical powers set in the past and second one deals in the future with aliens also both dea with military


The characters and the story are pretty similar though in different settings. They both have a main male who acts like he's nothing great but actually is a true badass with a dark past.

Both Kaze no Stigma and Chrome Shelled Regios have a very strong main character. The main characters both suffer from a painful past.

Kaze no Stigma touches more on romance, but both of them have some comedy.


They both have super natural powers in them and are very interesting to watch. They also have a sometimes fun atsmosphere because of all the girls and jelously in the air.


Both animes portray a male lead who chooses to rebel against his peers and forge a life in his own way. Both of them wield tremendous power but either cannot or choose not to use it for thier own self righteous reasons and learn to live on without it, earning even greater power along the way. Kaze no Stigma is the better of the two if you ask me, but both feature well done story lines and relatable characters that like to keep you on your toes. Though the two characters themselvers are rather different, if you are a fan of either or enjoy some magical sword swinging ass kicking, then you will love them both.


I like this anime for the strong male leads who protect the women in their anime while kazuyam has a more sarcastica attitude then the MC male in Chrome regios

Both of these anime involve a school based around futuristic fighting and military arts. There is just the right mix of normal school life and futuristic combat in both. That and the male leads are very similar in both in that they're both sort of misfits that have special abilities and several girls vying for their affections...though more so in IS.


Both anime follow the Harem genre. Infinte Stratos is more blunt about relationships and is more about arena combat. Chrome Shelled Regios has a more suttle approch to the relationships and is more or less watching Layfon kill every polluted beast while the girls and bystanders watch in awww.


Watching the first few episodes of IS, Chrome Shelled Regios flashed through my head. Both...

  • involve studying in some sort of academy to prepare students for combat
  • take place in the future
  • fall under Harem in a sense
  • students' combat skills are used in an arena... for the most part

Characters aside, they're only different because IS uses mecha-ish exoskelletons as a "power" as opposed to CSR which actually uses psychic powers.

Sword Art Online

Sword Art Online

The year is 2022, and gamers have lined up on launch day for Sword Art Online, a hotly-anticipated MMORPG that lets players connect to an immersive virtual reality world with special helmets called Nerve Gear. Kirito is one such gamer who's eager to jump back into action, having spent a great deal of time as a beta tester, and quickly becomes friends with newbie warrior Klein. But soon, Sword Art Online's 10,000 players discover that not only are they unable to log out, the only way they can return to their physical bodies is by beating the 100-level tower's final boss - that is, if their HP doesn't drop to zero first, for death in the game means death in the real world. Now, with no one else to turn to, Kirito and the other participants must survive the game as best they can – some forming guilds, others ruthlessly leaving their peers behind, and many tragically falling by the wayside or to the merciless monsters populating the lands...

If you liked one you will likethe other because both contain a hero with awesome sword skill who fights for their city/world


In both of these anime, the main character has past experiences that at first he tries to keep secret from his peers. These experiences put them on a lever higher than most and the end up being relied upon heavily to save there respective worlds.


both shows are based around a character that has great power, having to decide to use that power for the good of those around them.

Black Cat

Black Cat

An organization known to the dark side of the world as Chronos claims to desire world peace, employing the top thirteen assassins in the world known as 'Erasers.' They each have a weapon customized to fit their style, all made out of orichalcum ore, the strongest material available on Earth. Number 13, Train Heartnet (codenamed Black Cat) is the most famous and revered of the thirteen Chronos numbers, but in the light of a tragic event he has come to question his path in life. Together with Sven Vollfied, a struggling bounty hunter and a living weapon named Eve, Train takes up a job as a bounty hunter - all the while running from the other Erasers and Creed Diskenth, a crazed man whom wants him to join the Apostles of the Stars, a group made to destroy Chronos.

Both anime's have a skilled main character with a past they'd rather not relive. In Black Cat and Chrome Shelled Regios both characters are in an elite 12 (Chrome) or elite 13 (Cat). In both stories they leave the elite and do common work. Both stories are action packed.


Black Cat and Chrome Shelled Regios are verysimular. They both contain mysterious male main characters who have a dark past.Throughtthe series both you see both characters undergo changes that allow them to be more open and or friendly. I highly recommend both.
