The story revolves around Raul, a boy who did not become a Hero, since the demon lord was already defeated just before his Hero exams. His dreams dashed, Raul spends his days working at a magic shop in the capital. One day, a part-time job seeker appears at the shop with an amazing résumé:

Name: Fino
Previous Occupation: Demon Lord Heir
Motive: Because my father was defeated

The work comedy revolves around this former Hero-in-training and the daughter of the demon lord.

This was probably one of the most polar animes of Fall 2013; either you love it, or you thought it was boring. Enjoyment of Yuusha ni Narenakatta Ore wa Shibushibu Shuushoku wo Ketsui Shimashita (Yuusha-ni henceforth, damn..) relies entirely on the perception of Fino Bloodstone, the main character.

Fino Bloodstone is an aloof, kind, and incompetent girl who has come to work at the Leon magical appliances store due to not being able to become the next Demon Lord. There, she meets Raul Chaser who is also working at Leon due to not being able to become a Hero. From that description alone, you can read more

Yuushibu... I thought this was going to be good but i found myself to be bored for the most part of the anime and i wanted to drop it but i never drop an anime, this could have been of 50 episodes and i would go through that torture just to complete it.

At first i thought this was going to be very good because of the first minutes, where there is a fight scene but then, oh man i expected that because i read the synopsis and knew it was going to be like it was, but they didn't do it well, they failed at read more

Is it just me, or do the Japanese love giving their anime over-the-top, overly long, ridiculous titles. I Couldn't Become a Hero, So I Reluctantly Decided to Get a Job is the story about a young man who went to an academy where people trained to defeat the Dark Lord. Unfortunately, the Dark Lord was defeated before he even graduated and the academy went under. Destitute and in need of money, Raul Chaser reluctantly gets a job working for a magic appliance retail store. Months later, another person also begins working there - the Dark Lord's only daughter, Fino Bloodstone. Can't you just smell the read more

Yuusha ni Narenakatta Ore wa Shibushibu Shuushoku wo Ketsui Shimashita is literally the translation of “I Couldn't Become a Hero, So I Reluctantly Decided to Get a Job.” With a title that long, it’s probably difficult to take such a show seriously. Why even bother reading the synopsis? The title is what you get and our main male protagonist in the show, Raul Chase, takes a job small shop called Magic Shop Leon. Raul himself is no ordinary young man because his origins traces him back to Hero School where he was a former Hero candidate. Like a carte in a restaurant, this show has read more

Anime: Hataraku Maou-sama!
Both series involve a demon lord and a hero to take a job,
In Yuushi they are still in there own world thought cause no hero's are needed anymore,
In Maou-sama they went to the human world cause they had no other choice.

Anime: Maoyuu Maou Yuusha
Both main characters are a hero who tried to defeat the demon lord; but end up having to work with a female demon lord instead.
Also both anime point out how people profit from the war with the demons; and how these people will prevent the war from ending (even if they can) and even try to bring back the war so they can make profit by selling weapons etc. Also both anime contain some comedy and ecchi.
Difference is that Maoyuu takes place in a medieval low fantasy world while Yuushibu has a magipunk setting. Also in Maoyuu the demon lord is the smartest  read more

Anime: Hagure Yuusha no Aesthetica
Both about a hero, a hero training academy, and a demon lord's sexy yet slightly airheaded daughted. The resemblance is uncanny.

Anime: High School DxD
Loads of ecchi, big boobs, demon girls, magic. Pretty much the same. Though in DxD the main guy is a pervert. 
reportRecommended by FlowHomie
Anime: Shinmai Maou no Testament
100% the same, storywise, character wise, and amazingly ecchi. Heroes and demon lords, heroes who don't want to be heroes, demon lords who just want to live a normal life, fanservice and people who want to destroy this everyday life.

Anime: Outbreak Company
Otakuish main characters who find a job, somehow; similar type of fantasy, comedy and ecchi. Yuushibu takes place in a "contemporary" magical world with demons, while Outbreak Company go medieval with elves and others magical creatures.
