When his city's alarm forewarns one impending, the teenager races to his sister Kotori in an attempt to rescue her. But upon his arrival, the spacequake transpires in that very spot, and standing in the middle of the destruction is a beautiful sword-wielding girl. Soon after, he learns she is one of many beings called "Spirits" who cause the disasters, and charming those like her is the solution to preventing them. Effective immediately, Shido must date Spirits and make them fall in love with him, because if he cannot, mankind's destruction may very well be inevitable.
A male lead surrounded by powerful supernatural creatures who so happen to have an attractive female figure. Actually the female figure is probably a main character in it's own right in both anime as it get's a lot of focus. Both series sport a token loli-type girl while the rest are considerably endowed. In both series the male lead is very much the underdog powerwise but Date a Live gives the male lead some survival tools while Rosario to Vampire's anime does not. The premise in both series revolves partially on not pissing of said powerful girls however that's where the similarities end, both have very different settings beyond what I described above but both rest firmly in the harem genre.
Ever since Tomoki was a boy, he’s dreamed that the girl he loves vanishes into the sky. However, while he’s convinced it’s just a dream, his classmate Sugata is convinced that it’s related to an alleged ‘new continent’ that’s floating around the planet. According to Sugata’s calculations it’s set to pass above their town at midnight, and sends Tomoki to check it out. Little did Tomoki know that at that moment, a scantily-clad angel would fall from the sky! Calling herself a pet-class Angeloid named Ikaros, she promises to fulfill Tomoki’s every wish. Now, Tomoki is able to manipulate panties and do equally as perverted things with ease; but what is Ikaros really here for, and are her motives as pure as they seem?

Now Honoka must try to stay alive while countless other witches target him, learn more about Ayaka and her craft, and still try to maintain his school life in the process!
Witch Craft Works and Rosario to Vampire both feature:
- richly imagined worlds where magic forcefully intrudes into a high school/slice-of-life setting
- an ordinary but good-hearted guy becoming connected to a girl with extraordinary magical powers and a sometimes-intimidating personality
- a lively plot dominated by comedy but with some elements of drama and romance, with plenty of entertaining side characters
- magical battles that tend to be more campy than scary
R to V emphasizes ecchi and harem themes. WCW has a clear edge in magical battle animation. But if you like one, give the other a try.
Fumizuki Academy is divided into classes ranked based purely on ability; Class A has laptops, reclining seats and ultimate comfort whereas Class F has to settle for a rundown classroom with rotten cushions and rickety coffee tables. Akihisa Yoshii has recently taken the placement exam and finds himself relegated to the lowly Class F along with many of his friends, and they’re far from impressed with their draughty facilities. Luckily, not all is lost as at Fumizuki, classes can declare war on each other to swap rooms by fighting with summoned characters whose strength is based on the users' test scores. As they dream of escaping their decrepit circumstances, the ‘idiotic’ students of Class F will try whatever they can to reach the dizzy heights of Class A’s luxury, even if it means taking on the entire school in an all-out summoning war!
Both animes have some beyond crazy school life, where fights are part of the day-to-day life. The main character is a less-than-average high school boy who is friends with the popular, pink-haired girl in class. With plenty of other girls vying for his attention, the animes have a definite harem vibe (more so with Rosario than Baka). Both animes have plenty of zany antics to keep viewers entertained.
