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

Disclaimer: This is a light-hearted series so seriously don't expect serious stuff.

It is difficult to write about this anime without any spoilers but for people who enjoy comedy and can ignore the ecchi this series will be very funny. The characters were funny and the harem concept was not overdone or annoying.

If you love Fino(or Phino) and Raul you ll love the show. It seemed that only 2 characters were truly given importance in this show and the rest were in supporting roles though they had hints of such potential.

The idea is similar to Devil is a part timer(which is amazing) but I would read more

This might be the first anime in which the female lead was more horrible than the male one. Usually its the other way around. There is also something with the eye drawing that was kind of unique, in a not so good way.

IMO, this isn't my cup of tea series. The female lead is the blockhead in this anime. I will commend the author though, its not a HIGHSCHOOL anime, but for a store. I haven't seen anime's other than this one that are primarily based in a store. Power to them.

The story is also very poor. Nothing is explained. Supposedly they were heroes in 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  read more 
Both about a hero, a hero training academy, and a demon lord's sexy yet slightly airheaded daughted. The resemblance is uncanny.

Loads of ecchi, big boobs, demon girls, magic. Pretty much the same. Though in DxD the main guy is a pervert. 
Otakuish main character 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. 
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.
