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?
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?
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.
In the magical land of Flonyard, animal-eared inhabitants battle each other for resources in harmless war games. One region, Biscotti, has fought valiantly but is on the verge of financial ruin when its princess, Millhiore, makes a decision: she’ll summon a champion who can fight for their honor! Through a magical portal comes Shinku, a once-typical middle school student who’s eager to join the cause. But soon, both Millhiore and Shinku make a terrible discovery: those who are summoned can’t return home! Now, as Shinku continues to train and fight for Biscotti, he and the others must also try to find a way for the boy to someday get back to his loving friends and family.
Each of these shows has a pretty similar premise, with each revolving around a main character who is summoned to another world and given the task of improving the relationship between two worlds, as well as helping to improve the standards of living along the way. There are also parallels in the way conflicts are handled.
Outbreak Company is a lot funnier, and generally an all-round better show than Dog Days, but anyone who enjoyed the themes of one should give the other a go.
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?
As I started watching this, I quickly got a sense of Zero no Tsukaima. I'm actually surprised no ones really recommended them to each other. They are quite similiar in the way that these worlds are intertwined with our own and how the main protaganist ends up trying to instill their good natured values especially with the heiarchy system. In terms of comedy I found Outbreak Company to be much stronger but romance wise its yet to be determined. As this recommendation is made as of ep 4.
