Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero

Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero

After saving a fairy-tale kingdom, Akatsuki returns to the real world with his prize—Myuu, the busty daughter of the defeated Demon King. It’s one hell of a happy ending until they’re forced to enroll at a school for magic users. There, Akatsuki can’t keep his hands off the girls, Myuu’s constantly ballooning measurements make her a walking wardrobe malfunction, and it seems like someone is always plotting against them.

Shadowblazen Shadowblazen says...

Both shows have a school setting, demons and magic powers, a badass main character who's a hero/demon king, and fanservice aplenty. This is just a gut feeling based off the first episode of Hagure Yuusha no Estetica. If you liked one of these shows, the other probably appeals to you for the same reasons.

rafazafar rafazafar says...

Same style and environment, But i feel that Hagure no Yuusha's hero is bit more serious at times compared to the demon lord. If you like one, youll like the other. 

MaatiSan MaatiSan says...

Although Ichiban Ushiro was done A LOT better, both have the typical cliche anime harem following a powerful hero that will change the world.  Both heroes are very easy going, and likable in a perverted/knowledgable sense.  

Rayray1000 Rayray1000 says...

thay both are Harems with some nice comedy and the main character is really powerful dispite the way the may act\

CrazyAce01 CrazyAce01 says...

Both shows are harems with a magic realism setting. They occur in societies that have special schools for students that use magic. Unlike many harem shows, in which the protagonist is a hapless moron surrounded by women that are too good for him, the protagonists of these shows are strong, competent men and often drive the plot. In fact, both are very, very skilled and powerful with the magic that exists in their respective worlds.

Neither of these shows will win an anime of the year award, but they're a lot of fun. If you liked one, you'll definitely enjoy the other.

ashman711 ashman711 says...

Both shows feature magic, demonic beasts, lots of fanservice. The main protagonists are both already rather powerful people though misunderstood through their exterior demeanor.

metalheadotaku666 metalheadotaku666 says...

Both have main character's that are badasses and both are pretty ecchi though Hagure Yuushu no Estetica is more ecchi than the other.  But if your fan of ecchi as well as fantasy then you would probablylike both.

picconiv picconiv says...

As everyone else mentioned, plenty of similarities, worth a watch, although the Yuusha has more of an open ending.

Grizz Grizz says...

If you liked this, then you will probably like this too. As they both feature a overpowered main character whos role is one of the highest in their world and their Ecchi Adventure!

The Familiar of Zero

The Familiar of Zero

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?

eaper eaper says...

Each of these series are slightly ecchi, magic based comedy/action titles. In each show, the lead male finds out that they are actually some sort of legendary super powerful person that fights to save/change the world.

KittyEmperor KittyEmperor says...

Each series features a man or well actually a boy who discover that they are some powerful person of legend in a magical world and as a result of this various types of girls end up falling for them.  Both series offer tend to follow more of a ecchi and comedy route with some fairly good action added in here and there.

thepgo thepgo says...

Both are set in a magical academies and revolve around magic. There is a male protagonist that is given an awesome power, and have something to do with saving/changing the world. Also, both are based on ecchi elements combined with comedy.

AvoSkorm AvoSkorm says...

The familiar of zero and Demon king daimao are simerlar in small but significant ways. The male characters in both in the end come out to be extremly powerful and the love between the male and female characters doesn't become apparent until near the end. Demon King Daimao however is Ecchi. Both series contain mages.

hannes33 hannes33 says...

Both animes share lots of similarities. the first major thing is the male main charakter.

Both have an incredible power and use it to help all around him. Also both show some signs of the I-want-to-protect-all-and-don't-care-about-myself-mentality.

Of course both men seem to attract all the girls around him. So both animes are a paradise for all harem lovers out there.

also parts of ecchi are included. the amount is a bit lower in zero no trukaime, though.

Finally there is one more thing both series share. The main female charakter. the girl in ichiban ushiro no daimaou loves the main male charakter, but is afraid to show it, so we have a little trundere here. But this is nothing compared to the queen of tsundere, which would be louise from zero no tsukaima

wargiam wargiam says...

These are two of my favorite animes. they both have love complex that anyone can enjoy not to mention the action in both are good ( especially ichiban). all in all great must see animes

XmasKing XmasKing says...

The magic which involves the protaganist being a demon king.Magic is very important and it includes a Tsundere that they are both fighting!

Rosario + Vampire

Rosario + Vampire

Fifteen-year-old Tsukune Aono is average in every way; he has no hobbies, less-than-stellar grades and he's even flunked his high school entrance exam. His parents have managed to enroll him in a school, but it's no ordinary school! Tsukune will be attending the Youkai Academy, a place where monsters learn how to co-exist with humans! As the werewolves, vampires, witches and other monsters are required to retain their human forms, Tsukune - the lone human - is able to avoid their bloodthirsty gazes. However, he quickly attracts the attention of a number of devilish beauties including the vampire Moka, a busty succubus and even a young witch! It seems Tsukune's average life isn't so average anymore!

cbsgoju cbsgoju says...

You will like the other one! Both Ecchi with lots of fan service! Also both Harem with lost of girls being attracted to the main character. The main character is a guy. The guy seems weak at first, but in Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou it turns out the main character is very strong. Also there are many exciting battles that deal with magic. Lastly both are very well scripted and have good stories. Main difference is that Rosario to Vampire is a lot funnier.

RedCrossRobbery RedCrossRobbery says...

Demon King Daimao and Rosario to Vampire have a very similar feel tothem. Witches and magic all exist at a school made for monsters.

MrBlank MrBlank says...

Rosario vampire and Daimaou both start with a young man starting a new school, but then the unexpected happens! In Daimaou he is told that he will become the Demon lord, While in Rosario to Vampire he discovers that the school is actually for monsters! As both series progress you get plenty of ecchi and comedy, and the relationships develop. I recommend both series due to their similarities in those regions.

CrazyAce01 CrazyAce01 says...

First, both are harem animes that deal with a protagonist thrust into numerous strange situations and relationships; a lot of these are quite funny. At the same time, the shows have a very dramatic, serious side in traditional shonen fashion. Alongside this is a suprisingly deep exploration of each individual character, as well as a bit of ecchi. Strong fantasy themes run through both; you'll find plenty of monsters and magic in both worlds.

espie666 espie666 says...

These two anime are fairly similar considering both are harems in which a seemingly typical teenage boy gets a group of beautiful women swooning over him. Both have similar themes, revolving around high schools with characters who can use magic, or are some sort of mystical creature such as a demon, vampire, etc. Since harems and ecchi anime are generally similar, the audience of one should enjoy the other.

zariale zariale says...

Both contain the supernatual elements, a fun harem theme, and main male characters with next to no idea how to handle their situations.

NyanLuciFur NyanLuciFur says...

They have simmilar plots. It can also be said that the characters have simmilar personalities. 

Infinite Stratos

Infinite Stratos

The development of the Infinite Stratos powered exoskeleton changed the world’s balance of power. While the distribution of IS systems has created peace, only women have been able to pilot them. So when Ichika Orimura is discovered to be the first male with the ability to control an IS, whatever plans he had for his future are tossed out the window even as he’s thrown to the wolves and enrolled at the otherwise entirely female Infinite Stratos Academy by order of the Japanese government!

Tomthe1337 Tomthe1337 says...

Both of these anime fit the ecchi/harem genre while maintaining an unusually high level of quality for the genre. Both main characters are unusually skilled considering the amount of training/experience they've undergone, and have very unusual circumstances. Lastly, both main characters aren't spineless and thus come across as confident, giving both shows a steady, driving pace that will keep viewers entertained.

Takeya Takeya says...

When I saw the first episode I started to wonder whether the IS has not been created by the creators of the Daimaou.

Stories are quite similar - a boy X goes to school, where he learns how to control his abilities. "Unfortunately" for him he becomes a love object of several girls (let's harem begin!), but he seems be not interested in love (yea, chicks can wait, I have more important goals!).

If you enjoyed Daimaou/IS, then you'll like the second one :)

eaper eaper says...

While feature high speed action, a harem, and a lot of fanservice, these series both have the main characters fighting a mysterious force. If you enjoy harems, ecchi, and action, these series work well together.

KittyEmperor KittyEmperor says...

Both series revolve around a young man who goes to a special school so that he can learn to control his abilities.  Though in the case of Ichiban abilities means learning to control magic and in Infinite Stratos(IS) it means learning how to properly control this mech suit.  Also in both cases the male lead finds himself in the company of some rather attractive ladies.  So if you like something with a decent amount of action and a good amount of fan service then look no further than either one of these.

Am3n Am3n says...

realy great anime. But fights are kind'a boring. still story is great. Realy loved romance story. IS and Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou has great interest in how girls feels about boys and boys about girls.

Thrawn Thrawn says...

One man and his harem, when combined have enough power to fight a war. Both shows are about a guy building up his harem and going through a school life out of the ordinary (Mecha for IS and magic for Daimaou), complete with some delicious ecchi, the obligatory beach episode and that lovable, genre-savvy harem member.

silvericeman92 silvericeman92 says...

two awesome shows one guy surround by ladies who all like him, while being clueless about it always a sure way to add some humor and some pretty awesome fight scenes

Campione!

Campione!

After inadvertently managing to kill the god Verethragna, taking his divine powers in the process, the once-typical teen Godou's life changed forever. Now a "Campione", a god slayer, the boy constantly attracts both gods' and other Campiones' attentions alike, not to mention the affections of a powerful knight, Erica. Whether he's dodging Erica's advances, proving his strength to others or taking down gods who will wreak havoc on the planet, Godou's new life is anything but normal.

SeiyaManG SeiyaManG says...

Both of these are fantasy shows with an interesting premise and powerful protagonists. Whether it's being the Demon Lord or the Campione, both leads manage to find themselves in interesting situations revolving around their bountiful female casts. If you like one, you're bound to like the other.

Zarrokian Zarrokian says...

Both are about a guy who didnt nessecarily choose to be powerful but had this power thrust upon... neither of the main characters likes to be called by their respective title "Demon King" or "King/Campione". and also they're both harems... oh and they both fight magical beings... Id say if you like Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou you'd like Campione! and if you liked Campione! you might like the other...

DeViouZ DeViouZ says...

Both have a similar kind of storyline with a harem also both MC's wield great power, Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou has more Ecchi/fanservice scenes but both of them or very good nonetheless.

JAhU JAhU says...

In both series our teenage male lead becomes some sort of demon lord and quickly attracts female followers. The main concept is similar, but to be honest both series are just very cheesy harem ones. Still if you had fun watching one, you might try your luck with the other one.

Thrawn Thrawn says...

You know what they say, wenches love power. Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou is about a guy who is destined to be a Demon Lord, all powerful and stuff, while Campione! is about a guy who becomes a... well, Campione. God killer. But both obtain power when they don't particularly wish for it. With enough comedy and fanservice to complete the cake, both harems are good, dumb fun with some barely suggestive scenes.

manuueex manuueex says...

Both story are centered about a main character who got power and that is feared. They also both got a lot of girls around who loves them.

smileJB smileJB says...

Both these shows are really similar in that they have a powerful MC surrounded by ladies.  Neither of them asked for that position either.  Both have harem and ecchi.  While they are really similar, their plot and stories differ enough to not just be a generic copy.

They have enourmous similarity's, though I liked Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou just a little bit better! If you like one of both, you must watch the other as well! They are both unique, fun, and totally the same style but in a whole different way! I'd force you to watch both if I could.

Bubberiffic Bubberiffic says...

This anime is very similar to Trinity Seven and vice-versa. Both of the main characters are perverts on accident and on purpose. Both involve magic and lots of girls. Would recomend for any person who likes funny and heart warming anime! Both shows you can watch on this website (anime planet) so totally do so!

Magic, cool main character, tsundere girl with a sword. There are many similarities between those two series. But while watching one of them after another, you won't feel like you watch the same thing twice.

KittyEmperor KittyEmperor says...

Both series has a male lead who is especially strong when it comes to magic as well as a tsundere sword wielding female who likes the male lead.  Each series also features some rather nice battles and somewhat interesting cast of characters.

wolfangel87 wolfangel87 says...

The fantasy aspect is strong in Kaze no Stigma and Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou with the main characters being able to use magic.  There are nice animated battles and interesting characters.

Godlystriker Godlystriker says...

Male leads start off as strong, fighting style is cool and calm. Their actions are usually good in deed. They don't hesitate to hurt weaklings who's against them. At some point seemingly becomes the enemy, but we're given perspective for these actions.

The female leads also develops a liking towards the main, though both of them denies it.

However Kaze no Stigma does not have harem, and not as much ecchi content if you are seeking for those similarities.

Maken-ki!

Maken-ki!

Takeru enrolled in Tenbi Academy because the girl-to-guy ratio is, like, 3 girls for every guy. But this bevy of bombshells is actually a school where teens beef up their combat skills using a magic power thingy called a Maken. Redheads with wicked high kicks, shocking blonde bullies, and aggressive brunettes are EVERYWHERE. And every time there’s a brawl, their clothes tend to disintegrate. Distracted by all the bouncy brawlers, Takeru has a hard time concentrating on his training. Things get sticky when the hornball can’t figure out how to use his Maken. If he doesn’t find his mojo quick, he’ll be dumped by the school of his dreams—or destroyed by an attacker who’s after his magic power thingy!

Do you like busty women fighting against each other? Then both are probably something for you.

Both features a boy with some sort of hidden power. He is surrounded by busty women and a fair share of them has a crush on him.                                                None of them has much of a plot and are most for the fanservice, but if you want that both wont let you down.

scizorg45 scizorg45 says...

both anime contain Zero plot and girls in every flavor. They are both set in a supernatural world at a high school. So if you're looking for various degree of fanservice, look no further. 

If oyu liked one, check out the other.

Thrawn Thrawn says...

A man and his harem of womens, combating evil while enjoying their daily lives of using magic of some sort. The stuff of legends, but with tittilating fan-service. Maken-Ki! has the bigger bust on average but Ichiban makes up for it with the perversion of Korone, who provides fanservice for two. Both may be stupid at times but can be oddly enjoyable if you're in the mind for comedic hijinks with a dollop of boobs.

Jdogtoocool Jdogtoocool says...

I agree. Both Maken Ki and Demon King Daimao Are incredibly similar. From the herem of woman chasing after the main male lead to how he matures and harnesses his special abilities. There's panty shot after panty shot and the relentless affection for the male lead. If you liked one I'm sure you'll love the other.

While Demon King Daimao is more of the echhi variety, both it and Blue Exorcist have a lot in common.  Both protagonists are essentially outcasts in their societies because of what they are.  They can't help what they are - only who they are and how they use their powers.  Both revolve around the protagonists and their core group of friends in a school setting.  Both have nice animation, lots of humor, and good action sequences.  Two very enjoyable and similar series.

davidbankson davidbankson says...

Both anime are about a boy that is thrust into a demonic lineage against his will, and that boy's struggle to fight against what fate has intended for them.

both anime main leads fall into very intertaining and funny seance that make you wanting more, both animes revolve around a boy who has a uniqe ability from a dark decendence which is with rin is the son of the dark lord and akudo kai being the nex dark lord, both animes are similar in many ways the only major diference in my personal opinion is that daimaou has more fan service than other anime

Both are action ecchi focused animes with an uncensored version for boob goodness.  Both feature great humor interwoven into a solid story that makes good use of sterotypes.  Demon king is has a bit more focus in it's storyline, but high school dxd goes a bit further into the erotic/ecchi side of things.  Both are great easy watches and highly recommended if you like one you'll definitely like the other!

Jdogtoocool Jdogtoocool says...

I agree. The stories are very different but both deal with a pseudo religion where the good guys are the bad guys and vice versa.

Stories being different and shorter for Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou, these animes may not be exacly the same. However both of these animes being related to the same kind of Fantasy followed with Action, Ecchi and Comedy, you should still find both of these animes pretty good if you like one of them.
