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

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.

I coud say that you get somewhat same fell from bouth animes.Bouth imply familiars. Bouth have a dominant Character wich is the master/pupeteer of the second one;The funny part is that in Machine-Doll wa Kizutsukanai the familiar has feelings for it's master, in Zero no Tsukaima it is the master that shows it's feelings moastly through out the anime, making a tsundere impresion

Witch Craft Works

But the boy's life changes forever when one day, a piece of the school falls on top of him and he's saved by Ayaka due to... her magical powers?! For Ayaka is a witch, and deeming Honoka to be 'her princess', she is determined to keep the boy safe from harm. 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!

Bouth main male characters suddenly find themselvs in a reality they can not recognise, surounded by magicians, witches with wich they go on mind bogoling adventures, and take part in epic fights. they soon find out why they were chosen, their realities shifted, and that is because of the powers with-in them, making them special.An obligatory sense to help those around them ass well as the desire to protect their partners/comrads they care about is that what is driving them.

If you want to watch another series in which some japanese boy suddenly finds himself in the middle of world of magic, but in which character relations are completely different from those found in Zero no Tsukaima, then watching Witch Craft Works might be a good idea (especially if you didn't like the character interactions in Zero no Tsukaima). In Zero no Tsukaima the female lead is an annoying tsundere, but in Witch Craft Works the female lead is a loving kuudere. In Zero no Tsukaima male lead ends up being a servant of the female lead, but in Witch Craft Works the female lead becomes overly attached to the male lead and treats him really nice for a change.

My-Hime

My-Hime

Guided by a star only they can see, a group of maidens known as HiMEs have begun to gather at Fuuka Academy. These young women have been endowed with dangerous supernatural powers that they can use to their heart's content, but there's a price: to wield them, they must put their most important thing on the line. Now, in the midst of school work and friendships, they find themselves caught in the midst of strange conspiracies seemingly related to the terrifying monsters that attack them. Is the power of the HiMEs strong enough to save themselves and the ones they love?

If you liked Zero no Tsukaima, I think you would like Mai-Hime 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.

If you enjoy romantic comedies with a bit of drama mixed in then both Zero no Tsukaima and Please Teacher are well suited to your tastes. Both have very rich characters with humour and strife that will keep you watching and wanting more.
