Hagure Yuusha no Estetica

Hagure Yuusha no Estetica

After saving a fairy-tale kingdom, Akatsuki returns to the real world with his prize—Miu, the busty daughter of the defeated Demon King. It’s one hell of a happy ending until they’re forced to enroll at a school for magic users. There, Akatsuki can’t keep his hands off the girls, Miu’s constantly ballooning measurements make her a walking wardrobe malfunction, and it seems like someone is always plotting against them.

Both anime have a different perspective on the Hero/Demon King Dynamic and both begin after they have already reached the Demon King. In both series, the Hero has already undergone the powering up stage of most anime of this genre before the anime even began and are already a force to be reckoned with however the viewers have yet to see this power; it only being implied through their status as hero and feats already acheived. In Hagure Yuusha no Estetica, the feat being the defeat of the Demon King and in Maoyuu Maou Yuusha, the feat being the arrival at the Demon King's Castle alone.

The appeal the main characters of both animes give is the solid quality of their personalities and skills.  We get a strong, solid character in both, and the evolving situational circumstances highlights the beauty of character development.  Magic and high-level skills are used very casually compared to other animations in which strong powers are focused on to the point where they're no longer interesting.  Both are comedic, but have serious undertones.  Both are enjoyable to watch from episode one.  Coincidentially, both female leads, high-ranking demons, are self-conscious about their ample chests as well.

Both anime have the same slow-paced medieval setting. Economics is also really important in both anime.

Both animes have a lot in common. They base heavy on ecconomy during their plots and use it to create and explain problems in a higher magnitued, while they differ on the scale. Both animes are also not the fast and action-like type, while there are few times, you get to see a battle, which tend to be breathtaking in their dimensions... well, in a certain way at least.

No Game No Life

No Game No Life

An urban legend states that those exceptionally gifted at gaming will be sent a special game invitation, and the winners of the challenge will be whisked away to another world. When Sora and Shiro, two hikikomori NEETs who happen to be both siblings and notorious gamers, receive this invitation, they defeat it with ease. And like the legends tell, they're transported to another world where conflicts, peoples' lives and even country borders are decided by competitions and games. Always up for a challenge, the pair quickly take on the obstacles that come their way, whether it be restoring lowly humanity's good name compared with the other races or helping influence who will become the next king.

Both of these anime are about rebuilding whole societies. While Maoyuu Maou Yuusha focuses more on the individual aspect of improving a country; while No Game No Life focuses more on the ways to unite more than one. They're both pretty heavy on the fan service (as a girl, I could watch it, so it's not too heavy) & they both have a great comedy base. If you enjoyed one, I think you'll enjoy the other.

Both of these animes focus on ruling a kingdom and fighting. Maoyuu is more medival and involves actualal fighting while No Game involves gambling and board games mostly, neither one are focused on violence. Both deal with politics and two different races (if you can call it that) who don't get along and one is taking advantage. No Game is more focused on an actual story and characters though and appeals to a larger audience while Maoyuu mainly focuses on politics, business, and agriculture. The style is very different, but the subjects and conflicts approached in both are simmilar.

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!

Two unlikely indiviudals become uniquely intertwined. Whilt Maoyu focses on the affects of war in mideval times I coudn't become a hero shows the aftermath in a more modern setting. Both bring up some interesting points with cool main couples.

mrcokamrcoka mrcokamrcoka says...

In both anime there is a good "Demon Lord" and a hero who wants to defeat the "Demon Lord" but somhow they don't achive their goal.

The difference is that the setting in Yuushibu is in a modern world meanwhile the setting in Maoyuu Maou Yuusha is in a medieval world. And also Maou Yuusha is more political and deals with the worlds problems.

In Maou Yuusha the Demon Lord wants to solve the problems of both humans and demons with the help of the Hero.

In Yuushibu the hero who coudn't defeat the Demon Lord because was already defeated by a unknown hero. After the Demon Lord's defeat the Hero and the Demon Lord's "Heir" had to find a job and somehow they become coworkers.

In Maou Yuusha a hero and the queen of demons partner together to bring peace to all the land. Maou Yuusha is similar to Twelve Kingdom because it has a lot to do with war tactics and "chosen ones" being at the front lines to lead everyone. They both also have go on a journey to understand his or herself and what they truely want. Youko in Twelve kingdom had to accept being a new queen while the Hero needed to accept partnering with the demon queen and changing his own view points of killing all the demons. Twelve kingdom has a theme of half human- half animal. But, in Yuusha there are demon vs human type of conflicts. They both fight with swords and have religious themes. Lots of themes overlap and I recommend both!
