When Demon King Satan was facing his demise at the hands of Hero Emilia, he had no choice but to quickly flee to another world with his Demon General, Alsiel. However, upon their arrival, the twosome is taken aback with the realization they have lost almost all of their magic - and moreover, were transformed into ordinary humans and are stranded in an otherworldly place called Japan! To survive, the Demon King must now work a part-time job at a fast-food joint and attempt to adapt to modern society the best the pair can as Japanese citizens, all while scheming to rule over the country in the process. But with Hero Emilia and others on Satan’s tail to slay him for good, will Japan ever become his new domain?

Maoyuu Maou Yuusha

Maoyuu Maou Yuusha

After many trials, the Hero has reached his destination: the throne room of the Demon King, where he hopes to end the war between the Demon and Human realms once and for all. What he finds, however, is not at all what he expected: the 'king' of the Demons is a woman, and a bouncy one at that - what's more, rather than fighting, she wishes to engage him in dialogue! She explains that he was never expected to succeed in his mission, because the war is perpetuated by parties in the human world who profit from it every day. Swayed by her arguments, he makes a pact with her to work toward peace for both their worlds. Together, they will better the lives of their people and create a world where war is no longer needed to ensure prosperity - despite those who would shed blood to keep the status quo.

The story is kind of similiar about "Maou" and "Yuusha". just the diferent is character. both of them is Great


While the MC in Maoyuu Maou Yuusha is a hero (male), the MC in Hataruku Maou-sama is the demon king (male).  The demon lord in MMY is female and the hero in HM-s is female.  While the demon lords usually duke it out in battle against the heroes as arch-enemies, these two animes show them teaming up together to accomplish their goals.


both of them are about Demons and Heroes that are fighting for their teritories and freedom,                    


In these series, a demon lord and a hero interact in a way that you normally wouldn't expect. While there are some period and comedic differences, it is likely that if you enjoyed one, you would enjoy the other.


it has the same theme, demons, hero except opposite roles. the demon is yuusha and yuusha is the demon lord. i find it quite ironic. 


I think both shows are similar because the Demon King in both series acts in a way that is different from the normal sterotype of a Demonic ruler. In both series the demon king not only saves lives but they manage to build a friendship/love relationship with the hero.

Maoyuu Maou is does tend to be a bit more serious than Hataraku Maou- sama!


Both of these anime have a very similar story line as the "hero" ends up helping the "demon lord/king" for the greater good. another similarity is that they both take place in two diffrent worlds in which the main characters travel between.


Both series play on a new twist on the relationship bewteen the demon king and the hero of humanity. While MMY is set in the old days of medieval warfare, HMS is set in the modern era. MMY is a bit more serious while HMS is much more funnier but if you like seeing a budding friendship/romance between a hero and a demon lord, look no further.


Both series spin around the relationship bewteen the demon king or sorts and the hero of humanity. While MMY is set in the medieval times, HMS is set in the modern era. MMY is does not feature so much comedy as HMS does, and is far more serious in its themes. Yet, both have a lot of similarities so if you enjoyed one you might as well enjoy the other one. 


Well this series is kinda similar in genre and also it about fantasy genre...as you can see the main character for MMY is Yuusha(Male) and Maou(Female) and for Hataraku Maou-sama is Yuusha(Female) and Maou(Male)...the different for this series is only the character changing place and also the storyline of MMY is more to build the economy

Blood Lad

Blood Lad

Staz isn’t what you’d call a traditional vampire. He’s fascinated by human culture - especially anime, manga and video games - and unlike his brethren, he has no interest in sucking people dry. As a prominent street boss in the demon world, Staz has never desired to go to to the human world. But when a human girl accidentally wanders into his territory, is eaten by a carnivorous plant and comes back as a ghost, Staz makes a life-changing decision: he’ll help resurrect this lovely lady any way he can, even if it means heading to Earth! But the path won’t be easy, what with having no idea how to complete the task and his own laziness standing in the way.

Both are about demons and the human world. The main characters in both are powerful demons but don't really give off that feeling. Fuyumi and Chiho are both sweet, large breasted highschool girls that just happened to get caught up in demon troubles.


Both shows have demon characters who enter the human world, and who end up getting mixed up with a human girl along the way. Both of the female protagonists are similar to each other, with them being big breasted high schoolers who just happened to cross paths with a high ranking demon. Both of the demon males also have an obsession with the human world, they even share the same voice actor.

The comedy in each show is fairly similar a lot of the time, so fans of one will likely find the other enjoyable. 


Blood Lad and Hataraku Maou-Sama!  are both shows that feature demons coming to the human world. Both male leads are suppose to be powerful demons, but end off giving a comedic air to them. They also both meet a human girl along the way who share some similiar qualities.

If you like comedies about demons that really get into the human culture you will enjoy both shows.


Similar in their lack of seriousness, great character based comedy. Maou has better art, Blood Lad is more crazy and over the top


Both feature some excellent humor and mythological characters. If you liked the one, you might just like the other!


Both shows are about people in different universes/dimensions. In hatarake mauo-sama the demonlord comes to the human world and in Blood Lad a human comes to the demonWorld. if you like one you'll like the other, because the share a simular style in humour and look the same

I Couldn't Become a Hero, So I Reluctantly Decided to Get a Job.

I Couldn't Become a Hero, So I Reluctantly Decided to Get a Job.

Raul Chaser wants to be the Hero famed for defeating the Demon Lord - at least, that used to be his dream, until another warrior beat him to the punch! With peace now restored and all Heroes out of commission, Raul reluctantly gets a job at Leon, a small store that sells magical commodities. Compared to slaying demons, Raul’s new life of greeting customers and working the register is uneventful at best - that is, until Fino Bloodstone, the Demon Lord’s busty daughter, is suddenly hired at the stop! Raul now faces a challenge more difficult than vanquishing her father: teaching the clumsy and ill-mannered Fino how to become a respectable employee, while simultaneously fending off tentacle monsters and putting up with pervy regulars’ skirt-flipping antics!

Both of these anime's are sort of comedy versions of the Dark lord/demon Vs. heroes theme. Mixed in with very real situations such as finding jobs when everything has gone wrong plus just day to day living activities.

These anime's could also be considered to be opposites of each other as on focus on the overlords story and the other the hero's.

But of these also have a sort of ecchi side to them(more yuushibu than hataraku)


Each of these series have a very similar premise, with both of them following a character who comes from a 'demon vs hero' kind fo world where they constantly waged war with each other, to suddenly finding themselves having to work in the human world in a menial retail environment. Both sides then meet up and end u working together in the human world, and all sorts of hijinks ensue from then on out...

The comedy in each is similar, although Maou-sama is vastly superior when it comes to comedy. In fact, Maou-sama is superior in every regard, be it visuals, characters, comedy or writing. Yuushibu trumps Maou-sama in its ecchi though, but not in a good way, with it being extremely clichéd and crude.

But chances are if the premise of one was enough to get you intereseted, then the other should be good for a laugh or three.


Both shows have a simular story about a Hero vs a Demonlord. Tehy use pretty mucht the same humour, since the demonlord in both series are not used to the way humans live.


As others have said there's similar themes and humour involved in both. both are very lively series to enjoy.

Outbreak Company: Moeru Shinryakusha

Outbreak Company: Moeru Shinryakusha

After suffering a heart-wrenching rejection, anime and manga-loving Shinichi Kanou shuts himself off from the world and becomes a hikikomori. But the boy's solitary life soon comes to an end when he's hired as an ambassador to a newly-discovered world, where the only job criteria is to be a hardcore otaku! Now the boy must work hard to spread the word of this unique, nerdy culture in hopes of strengthening relations between the other world's citizens and Japan. And in a land filled with dragons, half-elf maids, and a teenage queen, it shouldn't be that hard... right?

Both are funny animes with likable characters. But the story is little different. I really liked Maou-sama and i like how the story is going for Outbreak Company


Both Hataraku Maou-sama! and Outbreak Company involve character's from one world going to another.  In Hataraku it's people from a fantasy world going to our world, and in Outbreak Company, it's people from our world going to a fantasy world.  Both have great comedy elements.  

If you enjoyed one of these stories for traveling to another world, you will probably like the other as well. 


Both shows involve characters discovering new worlds and try living in it. The difference between the shows is that with hatarake maou sama the characters tries to adjust to the new world and in outbreak company the character tries to teach his culture to the new world.

The plot and humour.Plot: Both pose the question what happens after the story.

Humour: Arises out of the unusual settings. While estetica uses ecchi hataraku uses the abnormal roels the characters are forced into.


Demon kings, lvl 99 heroes, and what happens when the quest is over.  Humorous and enjoyable.
