If you're looking for anime similar to Maoyu: Archenemy & Hero, you might like these titles.
Since long ago, the wolf goddess Holo has honored a contract to bless the rural village of Pasloe with fertile harvests; and in return she has been celebrated and worshipped by the villagers. But as mankind advances, the people have begun to take command of nature for themselves and have made their own god to worship. Holo finds that she is paid little more than lip service, if not outright mocked; and considering the contract annulled, she takes human form and enlists the aid of a passing merchant, Kraft Lawrence, to return to her home in the snowy forests to the north. As they journey together, Kraft finds that he has plenty to learn from this capricious god, and she from him as well.
Same director, same voice actors, both talk about economics, both MG are not human, The only difference.....
Maoyuu Maou Yuusha MG has a much more endowed figure than Spice and Wolf
Since both of them have the concept of economics and politics during the medieval period.Both of the main characters in those series are trying to share their ideas to find their way of not just only to survive to themselves, but also to their communities.
Spice and Wolf and Maoyuu Maou Yuusha are both shows about a human and demon working together for the common goal. Spice and Wolf and Maoyuu both share a plot about economics/ political gains, friendship with a hint of love, and two really great characters that you can't help but to adore.You will also notice that both series have a main female character wiith red hair, red eyes, and way with words.It is safe to say if you like one you will adore the other.
Except what bunnylovesanime wrote i'd like to add that Ami Koshimizu is seyuu which gives voice to both characters (Demon King and Holo) and Jun Fukuyama plays both protagonist roles (Hero and Lawrence)
Both have similar charm and a lot subtle things to keep the story interesting. Maoyuu Maou Yuusha has more fantasy elements and perhaps a bit too much breast-related lollygagging for my taste. I really enjoyed the all characters and the places they visit are far above average in design in my opinion.
Both series are medievalish fantasy ones with romance and semi-educational undertones. What's not to like?
Not enough? Both anime were produced by pretty much the same people (aside from the source material of course), so they're bound to be similar.
Both focus on economics and politics during a medieval period but Maoyuu Maou Yuusha has war is waging as well. Both series have 2 main characters being male and female where the female has a supernatural aspect to her where the male is just a plain human. Check either out if you liked the other.
Both anime seem to be set in the same time period, with a male and female(both with red hair and arent human) lead with a theme of economics and trade. They also share that they have a bit of romance and are great watches, If you like one im sure you will enjoy the other.
The dealings with economy, science, unequal balance of friendship and awkward love. Plus the wolf/demon looks and acts very much alike.
Maoyuu is basically Spice and Wolf with less economics and more flirting. Like someone stuck the characters in a different world and gave them a different backstory. I imagine the same audience enjoying both shows.
Same kind of style, and type of characters. Both main characters drawn to each other, but unable to find the words to make it work. Same type of plot too, characters hiding their relationship because of the taboos.
Each of these anime discuss trade and ecomonics and have strong female lead characters. Though Maoyuu Maou Yuusha has somewhat ecchi parts now and then like mentioning boobs, it doesn't over power it and ads some additional comic relief in contrast to the serious topics of war, political power struggles and ecomonics. While Spice and Wolf also has some humorous aspects they are not quite the bouncing boobs of the Demon King.
Both series has an intellectual charm that seems lacking in most other anime. They pull you in and teach you something important while keeping you entertained.
after watching maoyuu maou yuusha, i immediately thought of spice and wolf. if you like one you'll like the other.
They both have this smart approach in economy and how to turn things in their favor; they both take place during a medieval time. They both have a an un human element to them. I recommend both.
Spice & Wolf is more about the adventure, it does have a plot and in every episode they're closer to the plot though, they don't put that much interest in it. It's a great slow-paced anime.
Maoyuu Maou Yuusha on the other hand is all about the plot, every episode is a vital part of the anime. It's more about how to unite two worlds, the demon world with the human world. It's an awesome anime that'll be sure to hook you.
Both of these anime have an amazing medieval feeling, not to mention great animations, and although Holo spends some time in the nude and the Demon King has great tracts of fertile land, there is no ecchi, and instead has a well-developed plot. Plus we have Holo and the Demon King as red-haired, red-eyed deities.
Both of these are in Medieval times and have a diety along side a human character. They are very both deal with economics and a non typical love story.
Both anime try to show the viewer in how the economy works. Both strongly cover business and economy, while Maoyuu Maou Yuusha focuses on an inter-regional scale and Spice and Wolf focuses on the individual businessmen.
Both of these are about economic ideas about two people helping each other to stop others who use conflict and war to profit of the economy. Both have alot about money and trade and crops but both are really good and intense animes
Fantasy, Romance & Economics. Not much more I can say that will descrive the similairity better than that.
Although the setting is different the way the story "feels" and progresses is extremely similar.
When Demon King Satan was facing his demise at the hands of Hero Emilia, he had no choice but to quickly flee to another world with his Demon General, Alsiel. However, upon their arrival, the twosome is taken aback with the realization they have lost almost all of their magic - and moreover, were transformed into ordinary humans and are stranded in an otherworldly place called Japan! To survive, the Demon King must now work a part-time job at a fast-food joint and attempt to adapt to modern society the best the pair can as Japanese citizens, all while scheming to rule over the country in the process. But with Hero Emilia and others on Satan’s tail to slay him for good, will Japan ever become his new domain?
The story is kind of similiar about "Maou" and "Yuusha". just the diferent is character. both of them is Great
While the MC in Maoyuu Maou Yuusha is a hero (male), the MC in Hataruku Maou-sama is the demon king (male). The demon lord in MMY is female and the hero in HM-s is female. While the demon lords usually duke it out in battle against the heroes as arch-enemies, these two animes show them teaming up together to accomplish their goals.
both of them are about Demons and Heroes that are fighting for their teritories and freedom,
In these series, a demon lord and a hero interact in a way that you normally wouldn't expect. While there are some period and comedic differences, it is likely that if you enjoyed one, you would enjoy the other.
I think both shows are similar because the Demon King in both series acts in a way that is different from the normal sterotype of a Demonic ruler. In both series the demon king not only saves lives but they manage to build a friendship/love relationship with the hero.
Maoyuu Maou is does tend to be a bit more serious than Hataraku Maou- sama!
Both of these anime have a very similar story line as the "hero" ends up helping the "demon lord/king" for the greater good. another similarity is that they both take place in two diffrent worlds in which the main characters travel between.
Both series play on a new twist on the relationship bewteen the demon king and the hero of humanity. While MMY is set in the old days of medieval warfare, HMS is set in the modern era. MMY is a bit more serious while HMS is much more funnier but if you like seeing a budding friendship/romance between a hero and a demon lord, look no further.
Both series spin around the relationship bewteen the demon king or sorts and the hero of humanity. While MMY is set in the medieval times, HMS is set in the modern era. MMY is does not feature so much comedy as HMS does, and is far more serious in its themes. Yet, both have a lot of similarities so if you enjoyed one you might as well enjoy the other one.
Well this series is kinda similar in genre and also it about fantasy genre...as you can see the main character for MMY is Yuusha(Male) and Maou(Female) and for Hataraku Maou-sama is Yuusha(Female) and Maou(Male)...the different for this series is only the character changing place and also the storyline of MMY is more to build the economy
I actually find it quite amusing how these archetypes are portrayed much differently from the way a demon and a here are portrayed.
They both have demons that don't fit the mold.
Both have great Comedy. Nice story some drama and well.... some kind of romance in which i am interested.
Tigrevurmud Vorn, the young lord of a remote region far from the kingdom's center, is commanded by the king to go fight the war against a neighboring country. The leader of the enemy is Eleonora Viltaria, one of the seven Vanadis given supernatural arms from a dragon. The moment when an archer boy and the silver-haired beautiful war maiden meet, it is the beginning for the legend of a hero that will be told for generations to come.
The start of both of these animes are similar, two sworn enemies become allies. is Maoyuu, the hero is persuaded by the Demon king to join forces, and in Marksman and Vanadis, the MC is captured by the Maiden and she tries to get him to join her as well.
Two sworn enemies become unlikely allies. With both women proposing the reluctant male lead devote themselves to the other.
Both anime try to show the viewer in how the world works. Both cover inter-regional relationships, with Maoyuu Maou Yuusha focusing more on economical interests, while Madan No Ou Vanadis focuses more on military interests and tactics.
These anime have a lot in common but also have a few differences in the way that the story goes along. Lord Marksman and Vanadis has more action and warfare than Maoyuu Maou Yuusha and it sticks more with the Medievel Fantasy sense. While Maoyuu Maou Yuusha is more about Politics and mordernization in the sense that the Demon king shares the discoveries of the demons with the humans as a way to connect both societies in order to allow for coexistense.
If you like either one of these anime you will definitely like the other.
Lord Marksman and Vanadis has a lot of information about battle and strategy. Maoyuu is more about progression of technology, and economics and the politics that run them. Both have a romancy kind of harem thing that go on and both seem to capture a good amount of nuance in their respective categories.
Upon trying to save a friend from bullies, Shibuya Yuuri finds his head in the unlikeliest of places -- the toilet. Like a flash, Yuuri is then inadvertently sucked in, transporting him somewhere else! In this unfamiliar world of flying skeletons and magic, he is informed by a group called the Mazoku that he is to be the next Maou -- ruler of the kingdom! With harrowing and embarassing situations ahead, can our hero swallow his pride and lead a war against the common people when he can't even tell the difference between a slap in the face and a marriage proposal?
There are more than one similarities between these two, mainly the background, which is feudal time and the power the main hero possess in their kingdom. Except in Maoyuu Maou Yuusha, the are some super sweet romantism inserted.
If you love Kyo Kara Maoh, you'll surely love Maoyuu Maou Yuusha.
Both series follow the Maoh as he/she tries to end war and conflict. Both stories begin begin with a marriage proposal. Both Maohs are kind hearted and help those around them in need.
Both series involve an unusual demon king who wants to bring peace to their kingdom as well as between demons and humans and make the world a better place. Both take place in a fantasy medival setting with magic included, but not overly, remaining mostly normal. Both involve a male character who can, in one way or another, 'teleport.'
Kyo is more comical, much longer, and has a male lead while Maoyuu has a female lead. Also, Maoyuu isn't focused on characters or action. Kyo does focus on characters, plot, action, and comedy. If you liked one, you might like the other, although Maoyuu appeals to a much smaller audience. It's also not dubbed while Kyo is mostly dubbed in case you care.
With over 20 million players worldwide, Elder Tale is one of the hottest online RPGs. At least, it used to be only a game, until the fateful day that tens of thousands of players became stuck in the virtual world, unable to log out. For these would-be knights, healers and magicians, Elder Tale is no longer a hobby, it’s a reality, complete with tasteless in-game food, revivals upon death, and boring NPC conversations! With no other options than to accept their fates, the analytical Shiroe, perverted-and-proud Naotsugu, tiny and adorable Akatsuki and other new friends must adjust to their new lives in Elder Tale, avoiding player killers and monsters along the way!
These two animes have a few similarities that really stand out. They both build new economies and deal with creating a better world, and they both have powerful characters who have some cool fight scenes. Fighting does not decide everything in these worlds. It often comes down to polotics. I really enjoyed this aspect in both.
These two anime are written by the same writer, they touch on fantasy worlds, but with a complex approach to politics and economics.
Despite touching on serious matters, they are both light heartead, with endearing charracters, what the writer does provide is a bit more depth to these charracters than usually expected, and that is definitely a bonus for me.
These both have an rpg feel and are both focused on more the strategic parts with fighting thrown in. I enjoyed both, I think you will too!
After saving the world, the strongest hero Leo became someone who is not wanted in the peaceful human world. He was too strong. Exiled, he seeks a job at the Demon King's Army, which he had defeated and needs to be rebuilt. The Army had many problems: too much work, financial troubles, etc. Leo starts to make things better using his power. Leo encounters Echidna again, and asks her why she invaded the human world.
Both feature a hero who beats the demon lord then joins that side.After joining the demons, he helps with administration of territories.
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.
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.
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.
Both anime have a different perspective on the Hero/Demon King Dynamic and both begin after they have already reached the Demon King. In both series, the Hero has already undergone the powering up stage of most anime of this genre before the anime even began and are already a force to be reckoned with however the viewers have yet to see this power; it only being implied through their status as hero and feats already acheived. In Hagure Yuusha no Estetica, the feat being the defeat of the Demon King and in Maoyuu Maou Yuusha, the feat being the arrival at the Demon King's Castle alone.
The appeal the main characters of both animes give is the solid quality of their personalities and skills. We get a strong, solid character in both, and the evolving situational circumstances highlights the beauty of character development. Magic and high-level skills are used very casually compared to other animations in which strong powers are focused on to the point where they're no longer interesting. Both are comedic, but have serious undertones. Both are enjoyable to watch from episode one. Coincidentially, both female leads, high-ranking demons, are self-conscious about their ample chests as well.
Kraft Lawrence and the proud wolf Holo the Wise continue their northward journey to Holo's mountain homeland of Yoitsu. As the two visit new towns and make new friends a growing relationship buds between them, and Kraft begins to realize that there is more to being a traveling merchant than just profits. However, a turn of events leaves Kraft in an unexpected predicament where he may lose something more precious than just his cart of goods...
Both anime have the same slow-paced medieval setting. Economics is also really important in both anime.
Both animes have a lot in common. They base heavy on ecconomy during their plots and use it to create and explain problems in a higher magnitued, while they differ on the scale. Both animes are also not the fast and action-like type, while there are few times, you get to see a battle, which tend to be breathtaking in their dimensions... well, in a certain way at least.
An urban legend states that those exceptionally gifted at gaming will be sent a special game invitation, and the winners of the challenge will be whisked away to another world. When Sora and Shiro, two hikikomori NEETs who happen to be both siblings and notorious gamers, receive this invitation, they defeat it with ease. And like the legends tell, they're transported to another world where conflicts, peoples' lives and even country borders are decided by competitions and games. Always up for a challenge, the pair quickly take on the obstacles that come their way, whether it be restoring lowly humanity's good name compared with the other races or helping influence who will become the next king.
Both of these anime are about rebuilding whole societies. While Maoyuu Maou Yuusha focuses more on the individual aspect of improving a country; while No Game No Life focuses more on the ways to unite more than one. They're both pretty heavy on the fan service (as a girl, I could watch it, so it's not too heavy) & they both have a great comedy base. If you enjoyed one, I think you'll enjoy the other.
Both of these animes focus on ruling a kingdom and fighting. Maoyuu is more medival and involves actualal fighting while No Game involves gambling and board games mostly, neither one are focused on violence. Both deal with politics and two different races (if you can call it that) who don't get along and one is taking advantage. No Game is more focused on an actual story and characters though and appeals to a larger audience while Maoyuu mainly focuses on politics, business, and agriculture. The style is very different, but the subjects and conflicts approached in both are simmilar.
Raul Chaser wants to be the Hero famed for defeating the Demon Lord - at least, that used to be his dream, until another warrior beat him to the punch! With peace now restored and all Heroes out of commission, Raul reluctantly gets a job at Leon, a small store that sells magical commodities. Compared to slaying demons, Raul’s new life of greeting customers and working the register is uneventful at best - that is, until Fino Bloodstone, the Demon Lord’s busty daughter, is suddenly hired at the stop! Raul now faces a challenge more difficult than vanquishing her father: teaching the clumsy and ill-mannered Fino how to become a respectable employee, while simultaneously fending off tentacle monsters and putting up with pervy regulars’ skirt-flipping antics!
Two unlikely indiviudals become uniquely intertwined. Whilt Maoyu focses on the affects of war in mideval times I coudn't become a hero shows the aftermath in a more modern setting. Both bring up some interesting points with cool main couples.
In both anime there is a good "Demon Lord" and a hero who wants to defeat the "Demon Lord" but somhow they don't achive their goal.
The difference is that the setting in Yuushibu is in a modern world meanwhile the setting in Maoyuu Maou Yuusha is in a medieval world. And also Maou Yuusha is more political and deals with the worlds problems.
In Maou Yuusha the Demon Lord wants to solve the problems of both humans and demons with the help of the Hero.
In Yuushibu the hero who coudn't defeat the Demon Lord because was already defeated by a unknown hero. After the Demon Lord's defeat the Hero and the Demon Lord's "Heir" had to find a job and somehow they become coworkers.
