Happiness!

Happiness!

In a world not unlike our own, mages are commonplace and schools are separated between normal students and magic users. Yuma Kohinata is a student at one such school, Mizuhosaka Academy. On the way home from buying chocolates with his androgynous friend Jun, Yuma is given chocolates from school idol Haruhi Kamisaka; things become even more complex once the magic wing of the school has a gas explosion, displacing all of the magic students into the normal section – including Haruhi! Now, Yuma finds himself thrust into the world of magic, and must deal with the various women who vie for his affections; can he juggle his priorities and continue to pass his classes?

If you have seen either of these animes you will undoutfully like the other. They both go along the lines of the magical schoolgirls Vs. one protaganist and have one or more of the schools students after them. Both have there funny parts but more so in Zero. Both are good animes so I recomend seeing one if youve seen the other.

Zero no Tsukaima and Happiness are two of a kind I think.

They are both mostly a one on one romance that takes a sideline to the story. Both center around a magic school with a female mage lead character and a romantic interest that is more than he seems.Though the female leads are exact opposites of each other...

both take place in a magical world though the story in zero no tsukaima is more engaging. also both involve a school that teaches magic.

Both stories involve the main girl who wants to make the main guy her servant which never works out. As the anime progresses, they build a lot better relationships.

games4yosoul games4yosoul says...

Both series have tsundere type female leads, whom make unwilling servants out of the male lead. Over time both master and servant grow to love one another and the servant begins to want to protect his master/love intrest. Both series deal with the female lead being magical and both share a similar romanic comedy with a good bit of action and magic to make both series a solid adventure and over all plot outside of the romance. BOTTOM LINE: If you enjoyed one you will enjoy the other. At the very least one will remind you of the other.

For all you guys who wanted a kawaii girl to think she's got her claws into you, these two animes are just right for you.  Louise and Hazuki share lots of charming dominance for you to enjoy!

both are about a guy sent to a different place. in oda nobuna the mc is sent back in time. in zero no tsukima, the mc is sent to a different world.

both have fighting, and the occasional ecchi scenes, the female leads are both tsunderes, and both mc's have something special to bring. (in oda, the mc knows where when and how the battles will be faught, and in znt, the mc can weild weapons.)   both are great anime's in mu opinion, and if you like one, you'll probably like the other.

Kalmorph Kalmorph says...

Both main characters of these two animes came from different universes, and begin to serve a girl, who initially treats him like a worm, but then begins to treat him with more affection (Tsundere characters).There is also the fact that in both anime, the main characters know how to handle situations while others do not.If you liked this anime,'ll surely enjoy this other.

Seikoku no Dragonar

Seikoku no Dragonar

Learning to ride and tame dragons comes easy to most students at Ansarivan Dragonar Academy—except for first-year student Ash Blake, who is known by his fellow classmates as the “number one problem child.” Poor Ash is the laughing stock at school because, despite his unfashionably large star-shaped brand that marks him as a future dragon master, he has nothing to show for it. His dragon has never appeared. Until now, that is. One fateful day, Ash's dragon awakes in full glory, but appears different than any dragon ever seen before—in the form of a beautiful girl! What's worse, Ash soon discovers that this new dragon has attitude to spare, as she promptly informs him that she is the master, and he, the servant. Ash's problems with dragon riding have only just begun!

Pretty much the same except a role reversal. A problem student with no talent ends up summoning a human familiar, known in Seikoku no Dragonar as a "Parr" which is unique to everyone elses. The boy character in both shows is named "dog" by their master/parr.

Panta Panta says...

If Louise irritated the crap out of you then Eco is bound to do the same, as they're both the abusive loli that I can't understand why their male counter-parts don't just punch them in the throat to shut them up. Both Ash and Saito are regularly tortured on account of them being human boys and have all their liberties stripped from them by their ego-maniacal and hyper-jealous partners.

Look at another woman, even in a friendly manner? Physical abuse. Thank another woman for her help? Physical abuse. Do something you find enjoyable and don't include the clingy pseudo-girlfriend? Physical abuse.

In fact, both shows are poster examples of double-standard domestic violence. So, hey, if your masochistic urges involve being beaten up every day for even talking to a member of the opposite sex, then these anime will please you.

Oh and there's a magic academy, I suppose that's important too. But mainly the loli abuse.

Nillen Nillen says...

Both have a protagonist which just happen to be bound to a tsundere loli with pink hair that is a special magic user. Love it.

aboumonkey aboumonkey says...

If you liked Zero no Tsukaima, I think you would like My-Otome because magical girls are the main aspect of both plots. Both animes also combine comedy, romance, drama and fantasy. Finally, they both take place in an academy-school.

MaraRuizu MaraRuizu says...

Both Mai-Otome and Zero no Tsukaima have plots dealing with master-servant relations and magic (or high enough technology that it's pretty much magic, in Mai-Otome's case). Both also feature humour, action and small amounts of ecchi. Mostly, they strike me as they would be enjoyed for the same reasons.
