Both of the girls possess a power they aren't aware of. They both don't have friends but when they learn some other people, everything changes. They get friends, meet someone to love and learn how to use their hidden power. If you like one you'd like the other too.

Even though Zero no Tsukima has alot more.. romanticism in it.. both female protagonists share a hidden power that they are not aware of. Little by little because they are good natured, people will be drawn into being their friends and thats when the drama happens ;)BOTH ARE AMAZING ANIMES!! though different I LOVE tHEM BOTH 

Hidan no Aria

Hidan no Aria

Tokyo is on edge due to a rash of recent killings targeting Butei - armed mercenaries that perform odd jobs and capture criminals. So when Kinji, a student at a local Butei high school, heads to class one day and discovers a bomb has been rigged to his bike, he’s certain he’ll be the next victim. That is, until Kinji’s elite classmate Aria saves his life, inadvertently triggering his superhuman ability that flares when he’s sexually aroused! Though Kinji would rather slack off at school and be left alone, Aria is now determined to make the teenager her slave, fetching her food and partnering with her on missions - including one very important to the girl. And nothing will stand in her way... not even Kinji's possessive childhood friend!

Same leading female voice actor. Same tsundere main character, and same studio doing the animation. Romance, love triangles, and action! :) Main characters live together in both.

kjmerlinz kjmerlinz says...

The main character Aria has the same voice actor as Loise and both have similar personalities. Overpowering, demanding nobility treating others as slaves. Although the plot is very different the tsundere theme is the same.

The Sacred Blacksmith

The Sacred Blacksmith

Cecily Cambell just wants to be a Knight and protect her home like her father and grandfather before her. There's just one problem: she’s incompetent!

Together they must ensure that the Demon Sword Aria doesn’t fall into the wrong hands, and Cecily alone must prove herself worthy of her very own katana.

Zero no Tsukaima (or Zero's familiar) and The Sacred Blacksmith remind me of each other, mostly because they both inherently put most of their time into combat or a little of romance between characters present. Zero is much longer and more drama/romance driven than The Sacred Blacksmith (it is also more wacky) but they both juggle those two concepts constantly.

MaraRuizu MaraRuizu says...

The Sacred Blacksmith and Zero no Tsukaima both mix action and romance (in different amounts) in a fantasy setting. Both feature female leads who desperately want to prove their capabilities, while being deemed incompetent.

Sword Art Online

Sword Art Online

The year is 2022, and gamers have lined up on launch day for Sword Art Online, a hotly-anticipated MMORPG that lets players connect to an immersive virtual reality world with special helmets called Nerve Gear. Kirito is one such gamer who's eager to jump back into action, having spent a great deal of time as a beta tester, and quickly becomes friends with newbie warrior Klein. But soon, Sword Art Online's 10,000 players discover that not only are they unable to log out, the only way they can return to their physical bodies is by beating the 100-level tower's final boss - that is, if their HP doesn't drop to zero first, for death in the game means death in the real world. Now, with no one else to turn to, Kirito and the other participants must survive the game as best they can – some forming guilds, others ruthlessly leaving their peers behind, and many tragically falling by the wayside or to the merciless monsters populating the lands...

Both are themed in a fantasy world based on swords and magic. They also have a lead male character with special fighting abilities that they use to protect the ones they love. Both anime's have similar looking characters and they both include humor (more so Zero no Tsukaima), action, and romance. If you love one, you've got to love the other

ScytheOnna ScytheOnna says...

Both anime have a large variety of charming supporting characters. They both have main characters trying to survive in a strange world. They both have a male and female team-up - working together and developing their partnerships, relationships, with some romantic tones.

Holy moly. There are so many similarities between these two.

  • Both have a tsundere female lead
  • Both have a somewhat subservient male lead pretty much dedicated to the female lead
  • Both heavily feature fantasy elements
  • Both have a similar ratio of comedy to romantic scenes
  • Both have an interesting cast of support characters

Nanamy Nanamy says...

Both animes have romance,fantasy,magic,and comedy. the highclass girl and her protector/servant so then these two fall in love, also the personalities of the girls are similar, if you liked one be sure to check the other one as well, I enjoyed them both
