Chrome Shelled Regios

Chrome Shelled Regios

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.

Valkria

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.

AlmostFAIL

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.

Winterborn

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.

JoeyDAngel

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

Rental Magica

Rental Magica

The name of the business is Astral, and magic is its trade. Itsuki Iba is a school boy who seems to have a weak personality and not an ounce of magic within him, yet he inherits and must run his father's 'magic for hire' company after his father disappears. He must now learn to manage a diverse team of magic-wielders, gain their respect, and send them on missions to deal with the supernatural – all while attempting to excel in school and deal with competitors! But deep down, there's more to Itsuki. He always wears an eyepatch, hiding the results of an incident from his childhood; what other secrets does he hold? And can he handle the responsibilities while his father is missing?

TotallyLovable

While seeing all these supernatural abilities, we somehow want to become closer to that kind of world. In Kaze no Stigma is exposed only the one side of it - the direct use of magic without a thought about how it was gained and how it is supposed to be used. But there is Rental Magica that not only focus on the supernatural, on the magic itself, but on explaining the things we don\'t know about it - how it is related to martial arts, what are the different kinds of magic (e.g. Celtic, Shinto, Solomon) that come from different places on Earth. So if you are fascinated by Kaze no Stigma, you\'ll just need to learn more about magic with Rental Magica!

Merryberry

Magic has a tendancy to be different in every serie, and these two are no different in that respect. However, they are similar in the aspect that both have different types of magic within the magical world and that ultimately there are those who wish to distrupt the peace of the world and the knowledgable heros always tend to be placed with the unknowing main characters. Either way, both Kaze no Stigma and Rental Magica, exhibit a display of comedy with very serious situations enabling a good gentle viewing that many people who have watched one will mean that the other one is also of suitable viewing. Finally in addition to these, both are of show the progress of how the protagonist improves throughout the series, an added extra if you like those kinds of things.

Cetonis

Aside from basic genre similarities, Kaze no Stigma and Rental Magica both use a straightforward arc-based structure. Each is comprised of a set of simple stories in which the characters get involved in some sort of magic-related circumstance, using a mix of action, light comedy and some character development to pull itself along. Kaze has better fight scenes, while Rental has its well-known focus on "real" magic - either of which makes for an added reason to try the other if you liked one.

KittyEmperor

Both series are for the most part centered around magic and a small group of people dealing with it.  Kaze no Stigma has better fight scenes than Rental Magica giving that more action feel.  But Rental Magica deals with a larger variety of magic and explaining how that magic works than Kaze no Stigma making it a good idea to watch the other after seeing one of them if for nothing else to just give it a try.

Asura Cryin'

Asura Cryin'

Three years after an accident that nearly left him for dead, Tomoharu Natsume is about to start his high school life. Though with a ghost named Misao following him around, Tomoharu is far from being an average teenager. One day a strange woman appears and gives him a trunk that contains a tremendous power. This power is known as an Asura Machina - a being that draws its strength from a human sacrifice - and the sacrifice within Tomoharu's Asura is none other than Misao. As the bearer of such a power, Tomoharu immediately becomes the target of various groups, including the Divine Guards, who want his power for their own. When Tomoharu befriends a demon called Kanade and she is captured by the Divine Guards, he joins the Dark Society in order to save her. Now, Tomoharu will have to fight alongside the Dark Society while he tries to find a way to save Misao and bring her back to life.

Both anime revolve around supernatural fights, and both have hot, demon (or just demon-like) and fire-related girl which sticks with main protagonist.

eaper

Each of these series revolve around super natural battles taking place, often. Beyond that, they both have a bit of fan service and leave some large questions unanswered. Beyond that, it is just a gut feeling that someone that would like one would enjoy the other.

KittyEmperor

For the main part both series resolve around supernatural battles that occur throughout the series.  In addition both series feature a lead female who wields fire as their weapon though actually both females also use swords of fire.  Also by the end of both series there are some largely unanswered questions but some of which do get answered by the end of the second season of Asura Cryin'.  Include some lite fanservice for both series and I'm pretty sure that if you liked one then you'll probably like the other.

Magic, cool main character, tsundere girl with a sword. There are many similarities between those two series. But while watching one of them after another, you won't feel like you watch the same thing twice.

KittyEmperor

Both series has a male lead who is especially strong when it comes to magic as well as a tsundere sword wielding female who likes the male lead.  Each series also features some rather nice battles and somewhat interesting cast of characters.

wolfangel87

The fantasy aspect is strong in Kaze no Stigma and Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou with the main characters being able to use magic.  There are nice animated battles and interesting characters.

Seiryu

In both Kaze no Stigma and Tokyo Underground, some people have elemental powers and are fighting each other. The male characters share similar powers, their personalities are completely different; while the main girls are quite similar.

If you like fighting and supernatural powers with funny characters, you should watch these. 

Sasukefanx12

Both of these anime have similar main themes: Elemental powers. And both are subcategorized into the people that want to use their elemental powers for destruction and those who want to use them for protection. The main character in each also are both wind-magic users, but both have very different ways of excecuting their powers. Though Rumina from TU and Ayano from KNS both weild their respective powers in much the same way; via sword. Both anime also have a little romantic backstory to them between two of the main characters if you're into that type of thing. On a final note I'd just like to reiterate that both of these anime have a very similar feel to them and fans of one should seriously give the other a try.

cotsiost

both animes have great action scenes and they are both about elemental users, people using fire, wind, air e.t.c.
