The great main characters in both animes are feel the same. The world that contains magic also very similar. And the comedy and action is great in both.

Hataraku Maou-sama! and Yuusha ni Narenakatta Ore wa Shibushibu Shuushoku wo Ketsui Shimashita (Yuushibu for short) not only have similar starting settings but also have the same comical scenario: Comedy at the workplace. By making the demons work in a regular store (McRonalds in Hataraku Maou-sama and Lawson's in Yuushibu) and assimilating to the workplace, both shows create hilarious comedy. In Maoyuu's case, from adapting too well to climbing the corporate ladder and penny pinching and in Fino's case, from lacking common sense and etiquette and scaring customers.

While both are rather different content-wise -- Kobayashi is CGDCT where as Maou-Sama is mostly a comedy slice of life with some action and drama mixed in, both are what I like to call "reverse isekai," wherein people from a fantasy world enter our world rather than the other way around. The thing mostly in common between the two is in that sense, and in that there tends to be a lot of humor derived from the difference in common sense between the two worlds and the characters from the fantasy world adjusting/reacting to life on Earth. If you've watched Maou-Sama and liked that type of humor  read more

These series involve demons leaving their world and entering the human world. Maou and Staz (the main protagonists from each series) are both demos, who are overpowered, somewhat ignorant of the human world, and come across as anti-villain type good guy. Each of these series has a bit of romance and disguises a darker plot in a very colorful vibrant world. Neither series takes itself very serious as they each have their share of parody moments.

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. What happens next  read more

The protagonist in both shows is extremely strong. But they don't take the responsibility seriously, and end up talking about regular stuff in the middle of a fight that's supposed to be intense (like shop sales) which leads to comedy in both shows. If you liked the atmosphere in one show, you will most likely like the other show.

Both are comedies featuring powerful demon lords (though Jahy is the second in command rather than Satan herself) escaping to our universe after a defeat by a hero who ends up also living in our universe. The protagonists of both shows end up working food-service jobs, scraping to make by in small apartments.

Definitely get the same flavor from the Maoyu archetypes but now even more comedic because they take the settings and integrate them into the character backgrounds which then get thrown into a new world instead resulting in hilarious moments and situations. Demon king and hero again, with the use of magic but now in the modern world.

While both series have different premises, they involve the concept of a character who is not so ordinary living on Earth. At the same time, they discover more about themselves and the world around them through interactions with others. There are supernatural elements involved in both series. Furthermore, there is action, drama, and comedy. The main male protagonist in both series has similar personalities. Both series also involves a parallel of two worlds described metaphorically - one of humans and other of demons.

Both features a plot where a hero and a demon traverse through worlds to live in a new culture and comedy occurs as a result. Neither main characters are slouches. These characters are powerful and even in the new world, adapts very well within the premise given. Hagure Yuusha features way too much ecchi fanservice however (perhaps way too excessive for some), while Maou-sama makes fun of the whole poverty issue when a powerful figure have fallen so far.

In both series, there's the idea of working. The environment is depicted with comedy especially with the characters involved. The main male protagonist also seems insecure at many times regarding the setting he is in. However, he is determined to do the work he is assigned to. There is literally humor and many jokes made throughout both series mainly related to the main male protagonist and the people he interacts with.

Angels and devils forced into a slice of life situation fighting among each other with a hint of role reversal, although both sides end up just being friends that secretly hate each other. Both have a lot of comedy but Maou sama has a bit more story and character focus (doesn't always work but it's good) while Gabriel was made for laughs and a few of common trope characters everyone loves.

Both of these shows feature supreme beings trying to take over the world with their demon generals in tow... and that's about where the similarities end. So why should you watch Overlord? If you enjoyed seeing Maou attempt to take over Ente Isla in the first few minutes of the anime and want to know how he got to that point - namely an anime that explores the process of a villain subjugating the world - then Overlord is for you.

Hataraku Maou-sama! and Outbreak Company both contain a ton of humor. Among some of these include its various anime references. The main characters in both series are also oblivious to certain simple things because they are not from the world they were once used to. However, they are able to adjust and even become friends with others that they encounter. There is some action in both series although most of it is portrayed as comedic. The main male protagonists from both series are also somewhat similar in personality. However, their respective relationships with the main female characters from both series are very contrasting. 
report Recommended by Stark700
Both have a main male character with great supernatural power, in positions that are seen as threats to humanity, which cause the main female character heroine to antagonize and supervise the main male character despite his upstanding, even heroic, behavior. However, while they're both shounen plots, in "Hataraku Maou-sama!", the plot is light and comedic, and the romantic subplot is more subtle than it is in the more serious and harem plot format in "Strike the Blood". If you like supernatural shounen titles with strong, upstanding male leads with sassy main female love interests, both are worth checking out.

Both series talks about Demons in which they deal with poverty, while the devil is a part timer is more about a demon lord working to take over the world, Machikado Mazoku is all about a demon girl working to get her family out of poverty. In both series you will see how they struggle in life and money matters as well as how they deal with their powers and their environment.

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...

What a lot of comedy anime lack is a sense of genuine progression in the relationships and dynamics between the characters. Not only do both Servant x Service and Hataraku Maou-sama both show genuine development, but they also incorporate conventions of romance (as well as action in Maou-sama's case) without ever really coming across as angsty and melodramatic, and without dropping their humour.

Both shows follow a character that is intent on taking over/destroying the world. However in the process of doing so this character takes on the position of a job. Similar styles of humor as both have a lot of jokes centered around the main character's career option. The Devil is a Part-Timer! features a lot of jokes about fast food while Assassination Classroom features a lot of classroom humor. Despite the intentions of the main characters both are actually very likable characters and some of the jokes come from how they interact with other characters.

- Both anime are Isekai's but in Devil is a part-timer, the demon lord ends up in the human world whereas in how not to summon a demon lord, a human in his demon lord form ends up in a game. - Both the anime are filled with cliched anime tropes where the MC who is dense as hell forms a harem consisting of a furry, a tsundere, a well-endowed waifu girl etc - In both the anime, the demon lord is the good guy (no one knows why) and does most of the work whereas the girls are just useless most of the time

The core style of both shows is pretty similar. Both shows are comedic and have single-episode stories as well as longer ones that carry through a few episodes. However, comedy is not the whole point of either show. When you least expect it, things can get serious and intense. So they both share in this style that mixes comedy with serious and heartwarming moments. The main characters are also both... demons.... though it's not literal in Gintama. They're both easygoing at first glance but they often know a lot more than they're actually letting on and they hide their badassery until it's needed. I think if you  read more

The two animes are both of the type "Welcome to Earth, Bastard!" were the main characters face having to learn and cope with living on Earth, or Japan, more precisely. Both try to create situations which we would deem normal or easy to solve, but get to have over exaggerated reactions or complete misunderstandings, offering lots of funny moments with the characters. Also, some out-of-ordinary situations show up to defy the main characters from having their stay peacefully and "minding their own business" on Earth, as well as having a recurrent number of new characters added to the main cast.

Both have characters with power supernatural abilities put in an everyday setting. The only difference is that in Chuunibyou, the powers are just in their heads, while in Hataraku Maou-sama, they're actually from another world. Both are also light-hearted and fun.

These anime are pretty similar in a lot if ways. First, both the main characters come from different "worlds." Second, they have to adapt to a new environment because society rules differently on Earth than where they came from. Third, there is that carefree atmosphere in most episodes. Last but not least, is that the main characters protect a lot of people in their new "world" I guess...

Both animes contain comedy, and a slice of life. Personally, when i watched Hataraku maou sama it reminded me of The pet girl of sakurasou/ sakurasou no pet na kanojo. This is because the personalities of each character are quite similar. Also, the comedy in both series is quite similar. I would definitely recommend Sakurasou no pet na kanojo.

Nanbaka and Hataraku Maou-sama! are both really comedic shows, however there are some serious times as well when it gets a bit tense because of the action going on (more so for Nanbaka).

-They revolve around supernatural beings trying to make their way in the real world. One a heroic character who has qualities that make them seem non-heroic (Mirai and Emilia) and a demonic character who tries his best to make himself seem less like a villain. -KnK and Hataraku find ways to make the action scenes hilarious in ways, although Hataraku Maou-sama manages to do it a lot more. -Most of the times KnK and Hataraku are drawn with bright and cheery animation, but when the action scenes come they generally both turn to a must darker tone.

Although Sora has a lot more ecchi, both anime take place in a normal world which is visited by something from another. Characters are misunderstood as evil, enemies become allies, and they both are just funny as hell.

Witch Craft Works is a story that is fun to watch. One of those anime that is not that big or elaborated but easy to digest and enjoyable. It explains itself in a credible way while trying to justify the situations. Both of them have supernatural characters and situations that develop inside the lines of a realistic setting that try to blend into the normal world. Witch Craft Works surprises you because you don't quite know what’s going to happens next. The story is simple and easy to follow and you don't need to watch more than one episode to know if you’ll like it  read more

If you liked the slice of life elements of Hataraku Maou-Sama you'll like Gin no saji. Although they differ in the magic element, Sadao feels similar to Yuugo in the self beating humor, although he is not as shy as Yuugo. They both have a coming of age theme, Yuugo having to just deal with hard decisions in life and sadao having to abandon his past and working, plus some romance in both. It's difficult to compare them explicitly, since they are different genre but they both have a similar feel, as a extremely fun anime that doesn't take itself too seriously but is incredibly  read more

Both series' are comedic and interesting in a funny way. Both series' main protagonists somehow or somewhat, striving for the day(in a funny way). Both series' reflects the(or some) real life situations.(which you might relate of, :D ) The only noticeable differences in both series is that, one is based from reality while the other has supernatural and magic in the story.

Both are about demons that are in the "Human" realm, and how they have changed from who they used to be, with enemies from the other realm trying to kill them.

Both are about more 'evil' gods that leave their world and come to earth. Both main characters have a limited source of magic on earth and both are being followed/hunted by pretty much all the other powerful beings from their world. Also, in both there's a god trying desperately to work a job to get by on earth. They are also both more lighthearted animes.

Both animes' main characters get put into another world where they have to fight their ways out. The main characters' relationships for each other started out as them being hated or annoyed by one another. The main characters at a point were on opposite sides (Blood Oath/Solo, Demon/Heros). Both anime are full of action, romance, and supernatural.

Both involve fantasy elements in the human world, have slight romance and action. Hataraku has much more detailed and "important" action scenes though. 
report Recommended by Moedera
Both reminds me that they are unique in their way that they present their characters and plot. I assure you, by watching both of this, you would see the real fun in watching anime. Best of luck.

Both have a sense of action but both primarily focus in the changing ofthe individual and incredibly corny but cute romances. Both are some if my favorite recent anime.

Its same in comparison with idiocy where male character is complete idiot when comes to feeling of girls.. on the other side lots of comedy , action ( not the same action as in Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu where the progonist is always spilling blood ) maou sadao can be compared tosome levels to yoshii in terms of idiocy ( other than the fact that yoshii is a complete idiot ) must watch anime :)

Both stories involve Demons and reapers Both MC's have servants that take care and protect them in any situation Both MC's are very strong and intelligent not to mention a sense of humor, which gives a great balance of seriousness and satire in the story Both series have great Art work, Fantasy, Supernatural, Comedy, elements

* Both are comedy shows which involves parody (Hataraku's parody is more about brands) * There's action in both shows, and the MC are badass. * The MCs from both series were a great leader of a war in past (and both were called demon), but now they have to live a humble (but comedic) life and works to service people. * The MC lives with 3 other people (or animal), 1 of them is a girl. * There is a stalker girl in both series

Both are comedies, with good fight scenes, with a story that at first seems to be serious, but it changes its course towards something comical and very entertaining. (Harem, Ecchi)

Similar humor, both actually make you have fun watching it.

If you like Hataraku Maou-sama!? you might like Devil Survivor 2 The Animation. Just like Hataraku Maou-sama!? Devil Survivor 2 the Animation is also part of the Demons genre. It's also somewhat of comedy in some parts of the plot. Unlike Hataraku Maou-sama!? though, Devil Survivor 2 The Animation focus on Action instead of Comedy and Slice of Life.
