Similar tragic protagonist. They both are artifically made and have killed many people to protect their own, although they both regretted it

very similar with strong main character that was made to fight and even both in a world in the future

Funny yet meaningful adaptation on the manga this anime will leave you with a smile and a yearning for more. 

Htieks Htieks says...

Both are non-isekai fantasy shows about an absurdly overpowered main character with a classic dark and troubled past masked behind a fairly snarky and comedic personality.

As a result, they're both "moody" series which alternate lighthearted adventure and darkish drama. The story beats are also eerily similar, but I won't go into detail in order to avoid spoilers.

Plunderer has a bit more fanservice, and honestly much worse animation quality, but if you're into it for the fantasy and are tired of stereotypical "trapped into another world" premises, you might like both of these.

Maoyu: Archenemy & Hero

Maoyu: Archenemy & Hero

After many trials, the Hero has reached his destination: the throne room of the Demon King, where he hopes to end the war between the Demon and Human realms once and for all. What he finds, however, is not at all what he expected: the 'king' of the Demons is a woman, and a bouncy one at that - what's more, rather than fighting, she wishes to engage him in dialogue! She explains that he was never expected to succeed in his mission, because the war is perpetuated by parties in the human world who profit from it every day. Swayed by her arguments, he makes a pact with her to work toward peace for both their worlds. Together, they will better the lives of their people and create a world where war is no longer needed to ensure prosperity - despite those who would shed blood to keep the status quo.

Both feature a hero who beats the demon lord then joins that side.After joining the demons, he helps with administration of territories. 

jontipo jontipo says...

Both have strong character and hero switch the side. While in MAOYU the demon lord try her best to persuade him ( the hero ), in I am quitting heroing he tries to gain trust of the deamon lord ( main character on other side ) by slowing gaining trust of her team.

PURPLEHANDGANG PURPLEHANDGANG says...

Both anime had a same concept... Where OP-MC quite being a hero and restine from show off his bada** atittude and enrolled the demon army to errand demon queen.. well both are more like WorkLife and Action Fantasy.

Very similar plot ideas of "good demon lords" and "bad heroes" but from different points of view: Quitting Heroing from perspective of a hero and a bit more mature standpoing; Misfit - from perspective of demon lord with a lot more childish/edgy (but it aint that bad) moments

kubaleroy kubaleroy says...

both are stories that end up in demon lord and hero becoming friends, in both the mc is op and actually both mcs are from different age than the world the anime shows is (for misfit of demon king academy that is 2000years )

The only similiarity would be a spoiler. So just watch if you loved one - you'll probably like the other one. Of course Steins;Gate is a lot more solid, but that's besides the point
