Synopsis

After enrolling at the Constant Magic Academy, Akuto Sai discovers he's not just a gifted student with magical powers; he's destined to become the Demon King. And though he's not that crazy about the idea, it drives the girls wild! From the sexy school girls in his class to the skin-obsessed android who's programmed to seduce him, Akuto has no shortage of wacky girl trouble. How much temptation can a demon king take?

I started watching this the first week it was aired, so I was following most of this as it was being subbed, apart from the last 4 episodes which I burst through this evening by force.

This anime starts off very strong in my opinion, it is funny, it is reasonably paced, the characters are interesting, and although there are hints of being slightly generic on occassion in the first few episodes, I dismissed them as everything else was great.
The intro hooks you as it starts out at a train station, the main protagonist Sai Akuto is getting on the train to his new school with read more

"That's why I decided not to think about anything anymore!"

That's a good one-line summary of this anime taken straight from the last episode. It's safe to say that the enjoyment of this anime is inversely proportional to the amount of plot stuffed into one episode. Simply, the more plot, the less fun. Ichiban is a harem anime. That means it doesn't exist to cater to the brain, and it doesn't. You should be aware that if you're going to watch this anime, then you're watching it for a good laugh, a small smirk, and moments where you can go "Oh Japan!" and laugh at what read more

This is why I liked Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou. It had the most "badass" protagonist I have ever seen (Sai Akuto). I loved how the characters, effects and environment were drawn. There was many turning points where I was amazed how the things turned out absolutely other way, what I first thought. :) Tiny little minus in the anime was that there could have been less ecchi scenes, but most of them were saved by they turning to funny or awkward moments. Which were a good things/parts because I got to laugh in those moments. :P If there is second season coming, Im certainly read more

I really wanted to like this show. The premise is great, the world has a lot of potential, and there are many things this show does really well. Despite its gratuitious action scenes which are violent without being overly gory, the show never quite takes itself too seriously, and there are plenty of things to laugh about. It also has a typical ecchi harem subplot to add a healthy dose of titillation.

Despite all its good points however, it suffers from a single, major flaw, from which all its weaknesses stem: this story is far too ambitious for 12 episodes.

Anime: Hataraku Maou-sama!
A young male with almost no power (in our world) is actually the mao, demon lord. This is something both male leading characters have in common. They also have some sort of a sidekick and a female character that likes the main character, yet tries to fight him for some reason but grows to like him over time.
Both stories also have some sort of another female love interest that hangs around but this "love interest" is more obvious in Hataraku Maou-sama!

At the start, both male, main characters have little to no "Mao-power" but this...changes without the main character trying to achieve this.  read more

Both share the Demons/Angels/God theme, Ecchi, Action and the Main Guy ist not a total wuss, unlike in many other Harem Shows.

Anime: Rosario to Vampire
Both have a supernatural school setting with plenty of cute girls and fan service.

Anime: Ao no Exorcist
The main character is the incarnation of the greatest evil; however he only wants to be a good guy. Both stories have funny and serious moments (less in Daimaou). As far as I know, there will be an academy atmosphere which is also common in them.

Supernatural powers, ecchi, and epic battles.

i think they are the same. magic, heroes, and the main character, Sai Akuto and Ryner, sometimes can be a monster that can destroy world. there are comedy too.
