Upon trying to save a friend from bullies, Shibuya Yuuri finds his head in the unlikeliest of places -- the toilet. Like a flash, Yuuri is then inadvertently sucked in, transporting him somewhere else! In this unfamiliar world of flying skeletons and magic, he is informed by a group called the Mazoku that he is to be the next Maou -- ruler of the kingdom! With harrowing and embarassing situations ahead, can our hero swallow his pride and lead a war against the common people when he can't even tell the difference between a slap in the face and a marriage proposal?
Ouran High is a school for the extremely wealthy or, in Haruhi's case, the extremely talented. But no amount of talent will help when Haruhi accidentally drops an eight million yen vase in a music room. The vase was the property of Ouran High School Host Club, a group of attractive young men who, for a fee, provide their time and affections for their lovesick clientele: the female students. Fascinated by this strange new specimen, a poor and clumsy commoner, they force Haruhi to work for them until the debt is repaid; but they get a lot more than they bargained for...
Kyo Kara Maoh! and Ouran High School Host Club are filled with cute boys and flirt with the shounen ai genre. Both shows also have lots of comedy in them. If you like yaoi-light, or if you just enjoy light hearted, funny anime then both these shows are worth watching.
Kyo Kara Maoh and Ouran are very much the same in some ways, but are also different in their own respects. Both are funny and are also sad at times, but don't worry, the sadness is always turned back into happiness!
If you loved Kyou Kara Maou, you might also like to try out Ouran High School Host Club (or vice versa). Both series are filled with random moments and precious little bits of plot all rolled up into one, that will make you laugh your a** off.
Well there's this 'clueless main character thing' and 'what? i never saked for this!!' reactions lol. * Yuri and Haruhi
Plus there's a lot (a lot) of cute bishounens.They're both totally funny!! The love is really also cute. (some shounen-ai)
Really Cute. Gotta watch it. ^^
Both of these anime have some over-the-top humor mixed in with serious plot points now and again. Both include a large bishounen to non-bishounen ratio, and both have bishies that aren't afraid of a little shounen-ai based antics. And both Haruhi and Yuuri are the voice of reason (weirdly enough) for both groups at least 90% of the time.
While reading "The Universe of the Four Gods", best friends Miaka and Yui are mysteriously transported into a strange world full of magic and unfamiliar faces. As if their arrival was determined by fate, Miaka is revered as the Priestess of Suzaku, the savior of their warring country, who was destined to arrived in a flash of light, from a land far away. Betrayal, love, and heartache accompany this fantasy-filled tale of friendships torn apart, and hope that never fades.
Both the main characters, Miaka and Yuri, are taken into another world where they are offered a very important role of helping to protect the country. Both of them have romance, comedy and action. If you like one, you're bound to like the other.
Fushigi Yuugi and Kyo Kara Maoh follow the adventures of a youth who falls into another world of which they are an important figure. In FY, Miaka is a high Priestess and in KKM, Yuri is a Demon King. Both are about the protagonist journey into adulthood and growing of character as they come to navigate their new, foreign world. Both are on the comedic side with their serious moments, and feature legions of bishounen for the girls to oogle at.
All throughout Fushigi I felt myself reminiscing back to Kyou Kara Maoh. The main character being thrust into an unknown world and into a position of power from their usual highschool setting.KKM is funny. KKM is *very* funny. This is what carries the series through, keeping you laughing all the way. FY instead has comedic moments, but also seems to confuse genres and suddenly turn very dark with a moralistic story.However, the stories are very similar and I definitely think FY fans would like KKM, although maybe not so much in the other direction. Always worth a look though ^^
Kagome is a normal high school girl who falls into a well, transporting her back in time to the feudal era. Upon her arrival to this world, she mercifully unleashes Inuyasha, a half demon. As if this isn't enough, she also discovers that she is the bearer of the Shikon no Tama, a jewel of great spiritual power, a jewel which has just shattered into a million shards. Now, along with Miroku the priest, Sango the demon hunter, and Shippou the mischievious fox-demon, they must set out to find the Shikon shards and defeat the evils of the demon Naraku.
Inuyasha and KKM's main characters, Kagome and Yuri, are taken into another world. There, they both have important missions to fulfill. The stories take the main characters through romance, action and comedy, and the characters have to put their lives on the line in some way. A hero in the story always seems to save them, as well.
Kyo Kara Maoh and InuYasha have protagonists who are taken from our world to a semi-Medieval and fantastical world in which magic abounds. Thrust in a dangerous situation, they must set out on adventures with a group of characters whose abilities prove vital. Sword fights, plenty of humour and occasional leaps from one world to the other make these titles akin.
In both Inuyasha and Kyo Kara Maoh, an 'average Japanese student' (Kagome/Yuri) finds themselves transported into a strange world resembling the past where demons and magic are commonplace. The past reincarnation of their soul is someone important to several of the other characters, and this old soul is the basic of their powers. Frequent flashbacks to the previous life occur. Both must deal with the general hatred between humans and demons, and more specifically work to heal the bitterness between half demon and full demon and half-brothers. Both must take time out from their epic quest to save the world to return to the world of their birth to attempt to pass their classes. Both manage to be incredibly funny to watch while still maintaining an overall serious storyline and complex well developed characters that you will love!
Was the main character thrown through a trans-dimensional space via unconventional means (toilet/well)? Yes to both. Is the main character now in a feudal era setting heavily populated by demons? Yes to both. Does the main character learn they have a major important role in this realm? Yes to both.
Both of Kyo Kara Maoh and Inuyasha are an enjoyable ride of humor, fight scenes, and intertwining plotlines. If you like one, you'll probably like the other.
Yohko is nothing but ordinary. Throughout her life she has been considered an outcast, especially with a hair color not native to many in Japan, bright red. Things change for Yohko when a mysterious man named Keiki arrives and claims that she is his empress. Yohko and two friends are then taken through a vortex, and then abandoned.. in a world of demons and magic.
Children from Earth are magically transported to a world of magic and wonders, only to learn that it is their real home.
That is what Juuni Kokki and Kyo Kara Maoh! have in common. Now that is quite a common theme, but the two anime share one more thing: quality. No, it is not the same kind of quality; Juuni Kokki strives to make the 'magical girl' story serious and believable while Kyo Kara Maoh! is somewhat of a parody. But both manage to pull off their ambitions, and I really think that you will enjoy watching either.
These are very similar in having a single person randomly thrown into a new world to govern as a ruler. Both lead to fantasy worlds of magic with strange new ways of doing things that is fascinating to learn.
Both Kyo Kara Maoh and Twelve Kingdoms have a similar storyline of a boy/girl being transported to another world, becoming a king/queen, and having to face the troubles that are involved with being the ruler of a kingdom. If you liked one of these anime you will enjoy the other.
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 Kyo Kara Maoh and Zero no Tsukaima revolve around 'normal' guys who find themselves suddenly plopped into another world without warning. A world where magic is the norm and the rules of aristocracy must be learned. Both series have very similar comedic styles, and KKM's Yuuri and ZnT's Saito are constantly tripping up as they try to navigate their way through the new and sometimes bizarre customs. Yuuri and Saito also share a 'just do what's right' attitude that sometimes conflicts with the established patterns of the aristocracy... and both seem to discover that there is more to themselves than they knew. If you had a good laugh at Kyo Kara Maoh, you should definitely give Zero no Tsukaima a try.
In both Zero no Tsukaima and Kyo Kara Maoh an average guy is transported to another world where he must learn all of the rules of the land. They are both very funny anime that will make you laugh. If you enjoyed one or just want to watch something new I recommend both of these anime.
In both KKM and ZnT the main character is sucked into an alternate universe. As time goes by they both discover hidden abilities that they were previously unaware of.
Both of these series share the main similarity of an everyday guy being transported into a different world and having to come to terms with a new role in life. Yuuri has to come to terms with being the Demon King of another world, whereas Saito has to deal with becoming a slave. Both of these series show the development of the main male characters learning to accept this new world and not only finding their true place in these worlds but also gaining the desire to do the best they can in their new positions.
