More than less the same concept. I think Welcome to Demon doesn't have nudity, while the other does.

Epimondas Epimondas says...

I only hope Iruma doesn't screw up the adaptation to anime as badly as Rosario did.  Yes, both are about monster schools in a different plain of existence hidden from humans of our world with a new 'human' student who ends up gaining accolades and attention despite being only weak humans.  Both characters not only run into trouble but do so early on and establishing a footing at their schools because of it.

Literally the same anime but Rosario + vampire have a lot of fan service! The story is the same the protagonist goes to the under world and they go to a demon school 

(Sorry for my bad English) 

Soul Eater

Soul Eater

In a bizarre fantasy world, students known as meisters are trained at the illustrious Shinigami Weapon Meister University; but the tools they wield are no ordinary weapons! Each meister is paired with a human-like being who can transform into a weapon at will; and after defeating a pre-kishin - a human whose soul has darkened - the weapon eats the soul within it. A meister's ultimate goal is to collect ninety-nine pre-kishin souls and one of a witch so that his or her partner will become an all-powerful Death Scythe. Maka and her partner Soul Eater; Assassin Black Star and his partner Demon Blade Tsubaki; and Shinigami's son Death the Kid and his partners the Demon Twin Pistol Thompson Sisters each vie for their ultimate goal, but plenty of challenges and adventures lie in their way!

Believe it or not but the anime art style to Soul Eater and Izumi are very similar.  Both go to schools in different dimensions surrounded by monsters and magic.

cherryzombs cherryzombs says...

Both are school and competition focused, as well as having many colorful strange characters.

Welcome to Demon School, Iruma-kun is more childlike, where Soul Eater can be unsettling.

Beelzebub

Beelzebub

Ishiyama High is home to a whole host of delinquents, including Oga, a legendary badass who's downright devilish. One day Oga finds a man floating down a river, after which the man splits open to reveal a baby inside – but it’s no ordinary baby! The cute tot is actually Beelzebub, the future king of the demons! And as Oga is as mean as they come, Beelzebub latches on to its newfound 'father', much to the other demons' dismay. Now, in addition to battling rival gangs and becoming the strongest delinquent around, Oga must buy diapers, comfort and carry around an annoying baby who's more of a devil than he is!

Both have lots of bright weird characters, goofy humor, concern the future Demon King, and take place in a school.

Welcome to Demon School, Iruma-kun is more innocent, where Beelzebub is more potty humor.

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.

Welcome to Demon School, Iruma-kun is more school focused, and The Devil is a Part-Timer! is more workplace related.

Astuna Astuna says...

Both animes have this kind of (sometimes) weird humor, with the main character not belonging to the world they are forced to live in.

My Hero Academia

My Hero Academia

Izuku has dreamt of being a hero all his life—a lofty goal for anyone, but especially challenging for a kid with no superpowers. That’s right, in a world where eighty percent of the population has some kind of super-powered “quirk,” Izuku was unlucky enough to be born completely normal. But that’s not going to stop him from enrolling in one of the world’s most prestigious hero academies. Now, the only thing standing between him and his first class is the academy’s formidable entrance exam—nothing a little private tutoring from the world’s mightiest hero can’t solve.

Some characters of Demon School and Hero Academia are VERY similar to the point the could be the same but in disguise.  Art style and character looks are similar as are the range and variety of appearances and skills.  The setting is very similar with a rather tough means I’d entry, after all like Midoriya both have no powers and are average humans, at least at first.

To Love Ru

To Love Ru

Rito Yuuki is a bumbling boy who wants nothing more than to confess his love to the lovely Haruna, but a variety of obstacles always seems to stand in his way. One day, while relaxing in his bathtub Rito found his hands full - literally - with the breasts of a strange alien girl named Lala who suddenly appeared in his lap! She is the princess of Planet Deviluke, and she has run away from home to escape the prospect of an arranged marriage; and unfortunately for Rito, his accidental groping is the traditional engagement ritual of his otherworldly guest! Deviluke's emperor will destroy Earth if Rito backs down from his "proposal," but all he really wants to do is be with Saruyama! Naked antics, magical powers, misunderstandings, Lala's marriage-happy family and Rito's own shyness are many of the barriers he must face in his attempt to win the real love of his life – that is, if Lala doesn't win him over first!

(Disclaimer: please be aware that I am writing this review after only 3 episodes of Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun have aired, take my opinions with a grain of salt)

To Love Ru and Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun might seem like different sorts of shows to begin with (To Love Ru goes pretty hard on the ecchi), but the more I watch Iruma-kun, the more I am reminded of To Love Ru.

First off, the characters: Rito and Iruma are far from clones of each other, but they definitely share similarities in that they are both very friendly and accepting people, often to their own dismay, and both series deal with the main characters undergoing a dramatic lifestyle change and being burdened with unwanted responsibilities. Clara in Iruma-kun also reminds me of Lala in To Love Ru, they're both very dappy and excitable female leads, though (as yet) Iruma-kun doesn't seem to be heading in the rom-com direction at all.

Besides the characters themselves, the general tone of both shows is quite similar: they both present a very light-hearted take on what on first description might sound a bit darker, comedy is one of the primary focuses of each series, and both have quite a 'comfy', slice-of-life feel to them.

In short, I think I would recommend Iruma-kun to any fan of To Love Ru and vice versa, though I would advise people who hate ecchi to be aware of that going in to To Love Ru. Also note that the similarities I'm describing primarily apply to the first (and somewhat second) seasons + the first batch of OVAs of To Love Ru only, the series changes tone a bit in the 'Darkness' sequels and loses the same eclectic comfy feeling I referred to earlier.

Hayate and Iruma have near mirror backdrops with each having shitty useless parents more interested in burning money than family and both running into debts and having to work to pay them off then going to unique schools and living in mansions.

Gundam Build Fighters

Gundam Build Fighters

The time is the near future. Years have passed since the 1980s, when "Gunpla"--plastic models based on the "Mobile Suit Gundam" animation--created a huge boom. Now, a new wave is sweeping the world, in what could be called a second Gunpla boom. Its popularity is driven by "Gunpla Battle," in which assembled Gunpla can be controlled and made to fight. With the introduction of this revolutionary Battle System, its popularity has expanded to the point that a Gunpla Battle World Tournament is held each year.

Sabure Sabure says...

Both series feature the male human protagonist being thrusted into an unorthodox school with mainly non-human students. Both Jin (Seton Academy) and Iruma need to quickly adapt to their unusual environment (animals for the animal-hating Jin, and human-eating demons for the human Iruma), all while forming unlikely friendships with a bunch of wacky but lovable classmates.
