Enter the world of devils! Laharl, the prince of the Netherworld, awakens after a two-year-long slumber to find the land thrown into chaos. His father, King Krichevskoy, has died and the land has no ruler. Laharl decides that he is the only one worthy to replace his father, so he sets out on a journey back to his castle to claim the throne before another rogue devil tries to take what is rightfully his. Aided by the unlikely and unfortunate Flonne the angel and the deceiving former assistant to the King, Etna, what kind of hardships, misadventures, and bizarre encounters will they inevitably run into along the way?
Every year that passes, the lifeblood known as mana which sustains the world of Sylvarant slowly ebbs away. The land itself is dying, fields are turning barren, and life itself is on the brink of collapse. In the quiet country town of Iselia the last remaining hope, the Chosen of Martel, begins the Journey of World Regeneration – a quest which, if completed, would renew the world’s supply of mana and bring prosperity once more. However, Colette is not the first chosen to attempt the Journey; many have already fallen before her. Along with the mercenary Kratos and the half-elf school teacher Raine, Colette must travel to each of the elemental shrines and release the seals so that the regeneration can begin.
Do you like a slice of comedy with your Anime? Some clumsy characters with a pinch of innocence, but you also still want a good dose of action? Then you should find Disgaea and Tales of Symphonia are just your kind of thing. Set in fantasy worlds of Gods and Demons, our main protagonists are Lloyd (Symphonia) and Laharl (Disgaea) and although these two don't seem have an awful lot in common, other than that they are young, eager and sword-wielding, there is enough elsewhere for us to draw favorable comparisons. Indeed, Lloyd and Laharl seem to come from different ends of the spectrum - one is a young man who wants to prove himself as a swordsman ad friend, and the other is the Prince of Darkness. Yet Lloyd will have to get tough, and Laharl will have to learn kindness, if they are to succeed in their quests.
A whole host of supporting characters and monsters will be on show, and the various locations - from the Netherworld to deserts and Grand Palaces - look colorful and vibrant. The clumsy element in both stories comes from a young girl - Flonne is the innocent waif in Disgaea and Colette is our sweet little thing in Symphonia. Both are prone to frequently tripping up and generally getting in the way of things (as they also are in the related console RPG games), but at the end of the day they will both need their friends to come through for them in their hour of desperation.
In a world where magic is a reality, the young Louise is at the bottom of her class. Dubbed "Zero" by her classmates at Tristein Academy (due to her zero success rate for magic), Louise (along with all first year students) was charged with summoning a familiar; and instead of a cute magical creature, the familiar arrived in the form of... Saito Hiraga, a normal Japanese boy who was abruptly teleported from his own world?! Can both Louise and Saito come to terms with their new and complicated "relationship" and (more importantly) help Saito find a way home?
Both series have other worldly setting, are mostly happy, bright and mainly themed around growing love. Both are about magic and on the humorous side. Animation style seems very alike as well.
If you liked Disgeae, you should enjoy Zero no Tsukaima .
