-Both shows has a alien girl who loves the male protaganist
-Alot of comedy, parody, and development of romance
-To Love-Ru contains abit more fanservice then Haiyore! Nyaruko-san

Binbougami ga! started when Nyaruko-san ended, but the feel that those two anime brings are the same: supernatural elements in a comical way, lots of parodies of other animes, similar humor and situation and a little bit of romance. Watching Bimbougami ga! is like continuing watching Nyaruko-san. 
report Recommended by SanzuNoKawa
Supernatural flavored lovey-dovey-bishoujo-fanfare anime. Sci-fi element is weak and less worthy of mentioning than your average Star Trek. The fun part of Nyaruko-san is obviously not wet tentacles trying to ass-rape random teenage boy, but hot chicks that spout sexy nonsense and wear easy-to-took-off uniform.

They both are anime with hot chick, slight of life, comedy and mild sex sell. But with some extraterrestrial topping. Possibly mark the era that the legendary romance harem like Love Hina is a little bit too boring in normal world setting, so Japan added robots and aliens to them. Now you understand where all those animes came from./>
What else is worth mentioning? Not really. The pace are different, the humor are not at all similar, the art direction is all cool but not worth pointing out, the voice acting is not the same style for most part of the show. End of discussion. Now choose your porn, if you have high tolerence to everything, both are funny. If you hate overly fast paced comedy, go with Denpa Onna. If you fall asleep when watching Titanic and fall asleep again decade later when watching Titanic3D, go for Nyaruko-san. No one can sleep with that thing on. read more

Several crazy girls around the main male character and really really misfortunate and pitiful mc.
both are lovecoms about high schoolers.

Both have girls with magic powers, funny side characters, some ecchi and a lot of comedy. The female lead in both series are also non-humans, one being an alien and the other an angel.
Kugimiya Rie also voice acts in both series as Sabato and Hastur.

Contemporary fish-out-of-water stories. Maou and Nyaruko are both otherworldly entities that cross over to the human world and attempt to *discreetly* blend in (which Maou is much better at, to his credit). Trials and tribulations cross their paths, be they supernatural or otherwise...

They are both based off of comedy however Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka has a much more responsible lead and more of a plot

Similarities :

The main character from Ore, Twintails ni Narimasu looks similar with Cthuko from Haiyore! Nyaruko-san , when he is in his girl form.
Both anime have good comedy.
Both anime have aliens.

Even though Konosuba doesn't involve much romance into it, they both provide an eccentric wacky type comedy where the male protagonist is introduced to over the top wacky characters who changes his life.

Acchi Kocchi and Haiyore! Nyaruko-san are comedy anime that mostly take place in a school setting. The shows are sickeningly sweet with just the right amount of comedy, randomness, and of course, great characters. Both of these anime display wonderful artstyles, fluid animation, and just the right amount of "moe" which shows off the stellar work the folks at the studio put into these series. They're fun and if you liked watching one of them, you'll definitely like the other one as well.

Crazy comedies with tons of parodies and a small romance story that isn't really focused on. Moreover, the most parodied shows in both anime are Gundam and Kamen Rider.

Both have instances where the muchacho (male lead) is reluctant to get involved with the girl but seem to be stuck with the chiquita (female lead).


One has an extra sci-fi genre while the other has martial arts as its extra genre.

Both shows have a main girl who decides to crash at a random stranger's house and forces them to take her in so she can grow romantically close to said stranger. A majority of the main cast are otherwordly beings( dragons and aliens ). They also feature many openly LGBT characters (but don't cross over into full yuri/yaoi territory), 
report Recommended by necrodancewithme
The female protagonist is protecting the male protagonist and the female happens to have feelings for the male protagonist. Although the female lead in Haiyore! is kind of annoying but she and the female lead from Witch Craft Works give off a comedic feeling. 
report Recommended by Aleron
Beings from earth enter main characters life.

Cute girls end up living with protagonist.

Protagonist hits the girls when they say something they deem inappropriate (at least I think Ikaros gets hit on the head a few times early. Tomoki doesn't abuse the angeloids much at all.)

Same art style.

Both very funny.

Crazy randomness, awesome battle scenes, romance (?), cute trap character, and more crazy randomness.

-Both male protagonists have to take care of a peculiarly eccentric girl
-Both animes are school life that have a balance of comedy/romance/drama 
report Recommended by MagicFlier
Disregarding supernatural force in Nyaruko-san, they both are pretty much moe-overloaded comedy.

Looking for anything that lacks a lead male with actual facial features? YuruYuri is a better choice for you here. All lesbian high school probably with aphrodisiac in all the cast's meals. The rate is not 18+ but if you are not those people who took anime for the love of life but know only Naruto and Dragon Ball, your imagination can probably crank it up a few gears. Yuruyuri is, after all, a moe comedy you see popping up a lot from Japan over the last decade. It's imagination inducing, fap  read more

both have fast-paced, high energy humor, and the story of an ordinary boy and a supernatural girl bound to each other. Great comedies!

The main female protagonist in both anime are aliens. Both are comedy based with romantic nuances; both are set in high school.

Both shows have a hilarious perverted jokes.
both main female MCs shares the same personality.
All the characters in these two shows are likable and fun to watch.
The story start as the typical " Boy meets girl" and became more interesting as the episode goes. I guess these information is enough to convince you to watch any of these two. enjoy! :)

An alien girl comes to the Earth and falls for the protagonist, other girls come into the picture and a harem ensues. Lots of action, sci-fi and ecchi in both ones, not forgetting the comedy. First series coming to mind when watching Asobi Ni Ikuyo was definitely Nyaruko-san. Also, both protagonist alien girls having something to do with cats.

The main characters in both of these anime are living normal peaceful lives until the appearance of a 'Different' kind of person in Dragon Crisis its a dragon named 'Rose' and Haiyore! its a deity called 'Nyaruko'. Upon the appearance of these characters in each of the shows the main characters so called peaceful live is turned upside down and makes every day into an adventure. Towards the beginning main character thinks of them as an annoyance but as the story progresses they start to warm up to each of them and form a strong bond even risking their safety to rescue them at times.  read more

- both are a bit perverted comedies from highschool enviroment with a lot of references to other animes 
report Recommended by abystoma2
There lots of similarity when we talk about both anime such as -

-Both male protagonist just want a quite,peaceful life but end up with lots of trouble.
-Both have to deal with alien who come out of nowhere and ruin their life.(and lots of other supernatural thing!!)
-Both animes parody other anime, including very brief yet entertaining skits.
-Different kind of comedy but you guys going to enjoy watching male protagonist being bully around with the girl around them!!

If you guy enjoy watching this, you might as well try watching Haiyore! Nyaruko-san!!

If you ever need more anime to hate because of the density of the protagonist that almost reached the cosmic scale, (from the nil/non-existent - to the one single man who drew the lines of the DENSE MTFCKR, Orimura Ichika, which is the god of density, maker of all humans genderless, all without sexual preferences) CHOOSE THIS ANIME, you will REGRET this choice MORE.

If you like an absurd "aliens randomly visit earth and cause chaos" plot then Urusei Yatsura is the first and best of its kind. The character dynamics are a bit different but you're missing out by not seeing one of the absolute classics of comedy anime. 
report Recommended by delta5
What really struck me as similar about the two was how they both pretend to be serious for about 10 seconds before going 'screw that' and being absolutely hilarious, Even the rare times where they get somewhat serious are filled with jokes.
The other big part is the amount of references used in them. Haiyore! Nyaruko-san has even more of them, aye, but in both anime one can spend quite a lot of time trying (and failing) to find all the references.

The Main Heroine is like Yoshiko and the MC is always annoyed at her. Similar jokes and reasoning like in Aho Girl, Minus the supernatural. 
report Recommended by jurielle56
Nonsense animes, both don't have lot of story and are focused on comedy. Also weird creatures (wolf in Cuticle Tantei Inaba and aliens in Nyaruko-san) and lot of fantasy involved. 
report Recommended by Kuroneko-nyan
Both series are romantic comedies. The characters have similar traits, even though the characters are not just copy/paste. For example in Renai Boukun, Yuzu loving Akane is like how Cthuko loves Nyaruko. But Yuzu's more timid nature falls under Hasuta's personality.

Anyways, both series are filled with references that parody other series to Ghostbusters and Men in Black. check them out

They both include a main protagonist living with a "strange" girl coming from a different world.Also they have a similiar type of humor. 
report Recommended by MonsterXGM
These two anime are highly based on fiction/mythology and they both contain lots of supernatural elements.
Some episodes can be very random.
The main characters (Nyaruko and Sasami) are voiced by the same person.
If you don't mind a bit of randomness once in a while, check these anime.

They both have loads of funny references to the popular culture and have similar harem setting. Two very similar series overall, but Macademi Wasshoi is bit more decisive and its main protagonist isn't as much a forced tsukkomi character as Nyarko-san's Mahiro.

+Both have a supernatural besides main male character.
+Both have barriers to avoid people from noticing the fights and supernaturals things.

-Both have same setting of plot but totally different. 
report Recommended by TrOjAnHoRsE
Both series have an agressive female character(Nyaruko-san for Haiyore! Nyaruko-san and Ryoko of Tenchi Muyo!) who lusts after the male lead and often makes unwanted advances towards their respective paramour. Both series are harems, although Tenchi seems to show more caring towards his than Mahiro does. 
report Recommended by kanon-chan
Both have lots of cracky humor and random pop culture and nerdy references. They're set against dark backgrounds (hell, Cthulhu Mythos), though they are much more quirky than creepy.

Same mysterious girl meeting ordinary boy kind of thing.

Same mysterious wants to bang the ordinary boy but ordinary boy is no yet ready to have his cherries popped.

Both have the same supernatural and school genre.


The girl in one anime is a ghost while in the other the the girl is a deity/Extraterrestrial.

One anime has parody as its main genre while the other has mystery as its main genre.

Cracked out slapstick parody.

Both take absolutely nothing seriously, including themselves. Both spoof other anime s. Both have alien girls who "torment" their male protagonists. FLCL really has no plot (or needs one), whereas Nyaruko-san seems to know where it's going. Both are absolutely hilarious. a laugh a minute. FLCL is a classic and one of the best anime s' ever done. Nyaruko-san might become a classic as well. I love em both.

In Dakra we get another harem with a main who is one hell of a perv, and somehow get quite a few lovers from that.

Nyarko is less pervy
Kiss x sis is more to the "let's do it" way and Nyarko is more like "no don't!" way

Though you like this one if you enjoyed the other one :P

Girls/Girl trying to seduce guy...

Haiyore! Nyarko-san is less perverted than kiss x sis,
Kiss x sis has the incest thing while Nyarko has sudden girl show up thing.
Nyarko has Action as extra genre.

Though if you're into like "all girls like one guy and try win him" thing (and a bunch of ecchi scenes) you'll like this one :P

Both animes parody other anime, including very brief yet entertaining skits about the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.

Ken Sugisaki, the male lead from Seitokai no Ichizon, is much funnier and more likable than his counterpart Mahiro Yasaka, from Haiyore! Nayaruko-san.

All in all, both shows have biting comedy, copious amounts of parodies, attractive characters, and a catchy OP and ED.

If you liked one, then you should like the other.

If you liked Nyaruko's boundless energy, randomness, zest for life, and charming insolence, then you should like Kyouko, who is the main heroine in Ebiten and has all the aforementioned qualities.

Additionally both girls have the same seiyuu.

report Recommended by shigeru212
The girls in both animes are not human, but are crazy in love with a normal Human boy. The girls would do any kind of crazy act to get their attention, but are often a bit unsuccessful. Boys are a bit tsundere towards the girls, eventually showing their affection. While Haiyore Nyarko san is a bit more comical, Machine Doll has a more serious tone mixed with very funny misunderstandings.
