Synopsis:

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?

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.

There are more than one similarities between these two, mainly the background, which is feudal time and the power the main hero possess in their kingdom. Except in Maoyuu Maou Yuusha, the are some super sweet romantism inserted.

If you love Kyo Kara Maoh, you'll surely love Maoyuu Maou Yuusha.

Both Kyo Kara Maoh! and Meine Liebe have a cast mostly consisting of attractive male characters.  They also both have hints of shonen-ai (more so in KKM).  While Kyo Kara Maoh! is more a comedy and Meine Liebe is more serious, chances are that if you like one you will probably like the other.

Moyashimon

Moyashimon

Tadayasu Sawaki and his long-time hometown friend Kei Yuuki are finally away from home and ready to start university. They attend Tokyo's College of Agriculture, and the adventures start from day one! But that is to be expected, as Tadayasu has a special ability that is conducive to adventure and glory, especially in the world of agriculture and biology: the man can see, communicate, and interact with microbes! With ambitious sake-brewing upperclassmen, a sadistic postgraduate, and a clean-freak colleague, things can only become more exciting for the duo!

If you watch Kyou Kara Maou for the humor and the pretty people, you'd probably like Moyashimon.

It's a bit more on the serious/shounen side of the anime spectrum, but it still has cutesy and wtf? moments, and that little tiny dash of shounen-ai. [maybe even less than Kyou Kara Maou].

Princess Princess

Princess Princess

It’s never easy being a transfer student, especially when transferring in the middle of the year. Certain schools have their own traditions and ways of doing things – something Kouno Tooru discovers when the student council of the Fujimori high school insists that he dress like a girl! Along with two other boys chosen for their remarkable beauty, Kouno is given the task of brightening up the dull days of an all-boys high school. The rewards offered by the student council are great, but the life of a “Princess” turns out to be more work than Kouno had bargained for...

if you enjoyed Princess Princess for its humor and comedic actions, you'd also enjoy Kyo Kara Maoh (or vice versa). Both gives the same feeling of a light atmosphere sucking watchers into it with its plot and drool-worthy bishounens! another reason why these are roughly the same is because of its hinted shounen-ai between the main character and one of their friends.

try watching the first few episodes of Kyo Kara Maoh (or vice-versa)and you'll definitely know why i believe these two have the same light-hearted undertones. :3

The main characters of both are rather headstrong, reckless, but pure in heart, and that's how they end up with their hero status in their fantasy worlds.
