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

Yuusha ni Narenakatta Ore we Shibushibu Shuushoku wo Ketsui Shimashita (this is a mouthful!), or simply, Yusibu, is a rather...interesting addition to the demon king genre of anime. I have not seen a more ridiculously long title as this since Noucome, so I thought that I would give it a try. Here's my review. (The review is 10% off if you're the first person to read it.)

Story (7.43/10): Have you ever played an RPG game before that involves you, the player, as a hero, questing and adventuring to go and defeat the dark evil of the realm? (Games like: Final read more

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.

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 of the couple, while in Yuushibu it's the hero.
