Both of these titles have a mix of comedy and more serious themes.
Both of them involve interactions between humans and being from other worlds/planes of existence.
Both portray higher beings carrying out basic human jobs in order to further their life goals.
And both have a fair share of action.
Both are about other worldly beings trying to make a living in the human world, and both have action comedy vibe to it. Hataraku maou sama has a more comedic and light hearted tone than noragami and both have likeable characters, an interesting world, and overall plot looming in the background.
-Both have action blended with slice of life
-Both have some main characters gods and they get familiar with humans
-Both of the main males are somewhat shallow and stupid but cheerful and lovable
The usual city setting with loads of comedy and actions sequence and both of these main chars get a lot of friends for the sake of fighting and they're both overpowered and neither of them are normal humans with a different past from usual
Both have the same concept of a goofy guy living modern day Japan being something much more than human with a dark past. Maou and Yato are a bit alike and they just seem to have the same sort of feel. Mostly comedic with more action than I was expecting and a bit of implied romance. Overall, both great shows.
A dark past filled with violence and terror, gods such as Maou and Yato once lived life by exerting violence among others in order to accomplish their own means. However, fast-forward to the current time, Maou and Yato both display very different personalities from their past. Now seen as lazy, frisky, playful humans who approach things very lightheartedly often to their companion's dismay.
Friendship becomes an important theme in both series as it establishes a lot of important relationships and bonds between the characters. As supernatural beings who interact with normal human beings, these series rely heavily on comedic aspects to portray the distinctive and dramatic differences between those who come from different worlds. The humor and stories are extremely refreshing in both series, and the art styles are also similar.  read more
Both main characters are very similar despite one being a god and the other Satan. Both are really funny & laid-back and it is humorous to see these deities do regular guy things like work at McDonalds or fulfill wishes for 5 yen worry about things like clothes and food. I would recommend these animes for anyone who just wants to take a break from story driven animes and watch something funny and not get too psychologically in depth. I personally think The Devil is a Part Timer is funnier but you can decide for yourself.
Aprt from the fact that norigami is centerd around gods and spirits and hataraku maou sama! Is about the devil. The two anime plots differ quite a bit. However the blend of comedy, drama and a smidge of romance make both anime a must watch in my opinion.
These two anime shares the personality of the protagonists.. yeah they`re both powerful but they are changed by people around them, yet, they might look weak and normal but beware! they cant still be defeated easily!
Very similar series! Similar characters, with similar relationships- I couldn't stop thinking of Noragami while watching Hataraku Maou-sama!, they were so similar. If you liked Hataraku Maou-sama! then you will like Noragami.
The story much deeper in Noragami, but the humor is pretty similar. Both have a male protagonist who should be evil because of his past but goes against all odds and decides to live a decent life. Also, both the female main characters are capable of defending herself.
Noragami definitely a more interesting story, but if you would like to watch something a bit similar and entertaining then Hataraku Maou-sama is a good choice.
- both have a powerful being who are extremely good at fighting but have to live a normal human city life since they're broke
- both main characters are really ambitious and have similar personalities
- both have a trusty friend who they are stuck with living with
- both are mainly comedy which are able to slip in good action sequences
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.
Both involves supposes legendary warriors and a head demon, who found themselves washed-off and working part-time jobs. Dissimilarities: One has an extra ecchi genre, whiled the other has action as its extra genre.
Both plots have a similar premise where the Demon comes to the human world and tries to live
as a human. And the Hero who is supposed to the demons enemy ends up supporting and becoming
friends with the demon.
Both the anime entertains you with how the demon goes about learning how to do stuff the human way.
And they also try to earn a living to survive in the human world.
All in all both anime gives us good comedy to laugh with a little tint of romance.
- Involves a hero and a demon entering the human world for the first time
-main character must adapt to the new world and get a part time job
- both have a fantasy, comedy, romance genre
- both series are very funny
Similarity in both of these series, involves a main character working in a friendly work environment, as their previous task were left a drag. One particular character is a demon character, but despite being a scary one, they are basically friendly, sometimes naive, and a funny one where they interact with customers in somewhat a comical way. Also they used magic if they used it for emergencies only or fighting.
Hataraku Maou-sama! follows a demon main character who was transported in the human world, and works as a part timer. Yuushibu follows a hero character, who trains a demon daughter working at a store.
In both series, demons somehow end up in the human world and they get a job. In Hataraku Maou-sama!, it's the demon lord, while in Yuushibu, it's the daughter of the demon lord.
In both series, there are heroes who also get a job in the human world. In Hataraku Maou-sama!, there's Emilia who comes to the human world looking for the dark lord. In Yuushibu, there's Raul and his friend Airi who end up getting a job because they couldn't become heroes.
What if the Demon Lord and the Hero found themselves in a world where there was no point in either existence? Well that's exactly what you can expect from both.In the normal daily life of the Demon Lord and the Hero you can expect humor, misunderstandings, and misinterpretations. Perhaps even a realization that conquering and conflict are not all there is to life.
Both series are comedies about a Demon Lord and Hero that take normal jobs.
Yuusha is ecchi and both characters take normal jobs in their world since there is no more Demon Lord.
In Maou-sama the characters flee their world and find a job in the human world.
Hataraku Maou-sama tells that a demon lord was working at a restaurant because he was out of money to spend his life.. Then, a hero came too, working. But, in Yuushibu, a hero was working at a electrical store, and a future-demon lord came in a same place with hero, working too.. The storyline almost similar between these two anime series.. But, the character was flipped.. In Hataraku Maou-sama, the hero was a female and the demon was a male, but in Yuushibu, the hero was a male and the demon was a female... These character was hardworking in their works..
In both a demon and a hero - at first suspicious of one another - get acquainted, while working at human part-time jobs. Both main characters have been forced into this situation, although through different circumstances. Both main characters have a cute co-worker, a potential love interest that is their polar opposite and a quieter character that may be more than she seems. Both series have magical powers in them.
The differences are mainly that the main character lacks real motivation, inhabitants of different worlds work together and not against each other, Yu-sibu contains more harem-like premise and there are no parallel worlds.
Both revolve around a hero and a demon lord taking up a regular life of work in the world after their original lives came to an end.
Both of the male main characters act like their job is their priority when they try to save one of their fellow employees.
Both have fight scenes with the main characters using their original powers just like old times sake.
In both of these series the main protagonist exudes incredible strength, but is forced to harbor in that strength as they work in very boring customer service jobs. One works at a fast food place, the other works at an appliance store.
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 and would like more of it, Kobayashi is a good watch if you don't mind CGDCT, and if you liked Kobayashi's humor and perhaps want something a little more serious/not cutesy then Maou-Sama, likewise. read more
Both follow the premise normal meets supernatural. Tohru is similar to the MC in that sense he was banished from his world and needed somewhere to reside. Only big difference is that Hataraku has some action mixed in.
-Both are reverse isekai, where beings from another world come to modern day Japan
-Both are about the ridiculousness of godlike beings attempting to integrate into society with their limited knowledge of it
-Both are about or prominently feature these beings joining the workforce
-Both start with just one or two otherworldly entities but more follow in their footsteps
Both are reverse isekai (fictional-type characters living / trapped in the regular human world). However, beyond that, for both of the protagonists their respective shows place a lot of emphasis on their development as characters who are trying to figure out what it means to live as a human. With that said, The Devil is a Part-Timer! has a bit more of a linear plot, as opposed to the more episodic Dragon Maid, but this distinction isn't a deal-breaker if you're looking for parallels in character development.
What can I say? Both are slice of life/comedy animes. The joy of watching the characters interact with each other and how they go about their daily life despite paranormal adventures is the best part. The only downside is how short the shows are and how you have to switch to the manga/LN!
The Devil is a Part-Timer (Hataraku Maou-sama!) is basically the same story as Koabayashi-san except the "otherworldly" characters are demons and heroes instead of good and evil dragons. Both are equally heartwarming slice-of-life comedies starring realistic characters who work day jobs.
Both involve characters that are from a different world trying to adapt to the human world. They even 'bring' some of their friends from their own world into the human world. Both even have the characters working as well. Kobayashi has more females then males though, but do have comedy that's very enjoyable.
Both have characters in a fantasy world adapting to the real world living semi-normal lives. Both the demons in Hataraku Maou-sama and the dragons in Kobayashi's have a superiority complex over the humans on occasion making for some good gags. Characters in both shows are pretty fun too. Hataraku Maou-sama isn't as ecchi as Kobayashi's either. Anyone who likes these backwards isekai shows or likes the idea of a demon lord working at a knockoff McDonalds should definitely check this one out.
Both of these anime are more comedy driven that revolve around a ridiculous opening pretense that turns into a rather bizarre comedy/slice of life. Both shows focus on beings from another realm being put into our world and not really understanding anything. Both series are also only a season (12 or so eps long a piece) so they are both easily watched over a weekend.
Both involve the supernatural becoming involved with the modern world. Both have a supernatural being having a “common” human job. Both have a focus on comedy, but have a deeper subtext. Both have a bit of romance involved. These are similar shows with similar themes.
Alright. Imagine Dragon Maid... with men!
Hataraku Maou-sama is about Lord Satan, one of his servants, and his arch nemesis, Hero Amelia, come to Earth and get stuck here. So what do they do? Try their best to fit in, get a job and whatnot. This is a very funny show, I would reccomend!!!
Both shows are good reverse isekai comedies that feature evil monsters from other realms being transported and trapped in the human world and, after deciding to coexist with humans and integrate themselves into society one way or another, they are followed by fellow monsters who also decide to join and integrate the human world and its society. Both shows focus on the ridiculousness of overpowered monsters trying to fit into human society that they have limited knowledge on, heavily featuring the theme of workplace as well as some other recurring gags.
Both series involve beings from another world coming to Earth and learning about the world. Both major characters, Sadao Maou and Tohru Kobayashi both struggle with adjusting to the rules and regulations of society and because of this a lot of comedy is created from their confusion and interactions.
Also both series introduce more characters from the same magical world who bring in more comedy through their own unique struggles and all the different characters learn to deal with human society and the issues involving their world together.
- Mythical beings are forced to live in modern day Japan.
- Protagonist's rely on improving their views on humans in order to live relatively peaceful lives.
- Protagonist's powers are lower than in their own world, so they have to conserve some in order to help loved ones, and in some cases human society.
- Both plots follow the ridiculous nature of the characters adapting to human society where they are near equals with humans.
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.
both main leads are very powerful demons
both are your typical shounen leads they're even voiced by the same seiyuu
the comedy and overall setting is kinda similar
in both, there is a small romantic subplot that doesn't really go anywhere ..
Both anime's main character is the leader of a world or territory that has tons of followers. and they love japan; the genres of these animes are very alike and the female lead develops feelings for the male lead little by little.
In both series, there is a main male protagonist who seems to playing the role of a leader/ruler. However, they come in contact with something new and unexpected.
There is a lot of comedy in both series. Despite the main male protagonist portrayed as being powerful, they also seems to lack common sense and often or not seems to need help with logic of the real world. Both series also seems to make fun of popular culture and has references as well. There is also action that are sometimes exaggerated. The main female character in both series are a bit different but has an awkward relationship with the mc throughout the series. On the other hand, Fuyumi (Blood Lad) and Chiho (Hataraku Maou-Sama!) has some similarities.  read more
Strangely enough both these anime is really similar. Similar kind of art style if that is what attracted you, but also similar humor.
-Both have quirky "demon lord"
-Both are in==enticed by the human world, in one way or the other.
and plus, both are very funny and im hoping for more funny situations and stuff with Blood Lad
the CV of both protagonist is same..
both protagonist is supposed being a bad guy,, but actually they are a funny, crazy, good guy
the story has a 2 world..
both has a great action..
the comedy is great..
The second I started watching Blood Lad, I immediately got struck by that "special atmosphere," I so typically experienced back when I watched Hataraku Maou-sama! Already from the get-go, the series share a lot of elements and strikingly similar plot-twists. Many of the reasons behind this common atmosphere they share can be easily explained. The very moment you're introduced to the main protagonist, Charlie Staz, you'll immediately start seeing that he has some clear similarities to Hataraku's Maou-sama.
1. Staz is just like Maou, a type of demonic creature. Staz is a vamp and Maou is the Devil in own high person.
2. Staz and Maou are both very high-ranking individuals, and both have right-hands and helpers at their service.
3. They're both a bit lazy in nature but have also shown that they both are able to perform exceedingly well when challenged or motivated with various tasks or goals.
4. Staz has a tendency (just like Maou-sama) for not taking his helpers nor other people's feelings into full consideration when ordering them around or engaging with them socially.
5. They both come from another world/dimension (usually demonic in nature) to Earth through some kind of teleportation device or portal. Though they split on the fact that Staz actually wants to go to the Human world, whereas Maou did not.
6. They're both "Masters" at unconsciously getting girls to fall in love with them. Though Staz (like Maou-sama) is simply way too self-centered to really notice anything (i.e. meaning Chiho/Fuyumi-chan)...
7. Staz and Maou are both adapt quickly in the face of major plot-twists (many which they cause themselves, often without their knowledge).
8. Last, I wanted to enlighten those who have so far been too blind to have noticed this... It is the fact that Staz and Maou-sama both share the same voice actor: Ryota Ohsaka.
Plus, I'd also like us all to welcome Mr. Komesu Taichi on his debut. I hope we'll be seeing him in further series down the road. read more
**"Hataraku Maou-sama!" is well known as 'The Devil is a Part-Timer!'**
-Both main characters are powerful demons(Staz is a vampire) but don't seem particularly evil
-Both main male characters are the typical 'shounen' MC (they also have the same voice actor)
-The setting and comedy are reasonably similar
-Both anime include two worlds (a human world and a 'demon' world)
-Neither anime is very tense, they both have a soft, comedic atmosphere (with exceptions)
-When there is action, it's a bit exaggerated
I think that if you liked one, you'll enjoy the other!
- The main character has plenty of power, but decides not to use it out of preference for the normal world. In other words, both take priority to the modern world oppose to the super natural world
- Both animes are filled with similar comedy
- In Hataraku Maou-sama, the main objective becomes surviving in the human world. In Blood Lad, the main objective is reviving a human girl.
- Maou-sama takes place in the human world, Blood Lad takes place in the super natural world
Both shows have demon characters who enter the human world, and who end up getting mixed up with a human girl along the way. Both of the female protagonists are similar to each other, with them being big breasted high schoolers who just happened to cross paths with a high ranking demon. Both of the demon males also have an obsession with the human world, they even share the same voice actor.
The comedy in each show is fairly similar a lot of the time, so fans of one will likely find the other enjoyable.
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 is up to you to find out. read more
Well in both series, the main male protagonist is considered a demon king/lord in the modern world. They have a strange (although with different interactions) in both series with the main female character. Additionally, there are also others who are interested in him for different reasons.
There is a lot of comedy, drama, and some obvious romance hints throughout both series. The main male protagonist often denies it or rather is dense about situations. Regardless though, they try to help their friends in various events and puts others above themselves.
There's also action with supernatural gags in both series as well.
Both characters are or become Satin (the devil). Although for what ever reason both mains aren't really the evil ones during there series, and end up beating the angles who are ironically the antagonists, and end up trying to save humanity.
Through out both series there's great humor and character development, and the animation is really good, but watch out there is a slow start to both series and not that strong of a plot. These anime are mainly comedies with some action so head my warning, but don't worry they're both well done.
The main characters in here are known to be friendly demons who are living in the modern world and just enjoying their lives. Despite their friendly appearance, their powers inside of them are pretty dangerous and can be destructive in a sort of way. Nevertheless, they still have their chill personality inside of them and getting along with other people. Expect some romance, action, and magic.
Maou-sama tells the main character who was transported into the human world and blends in to help meets his goals. Daimaou is a fan service show and tells a story of a character that has a conflict for the next demon king in his future planning. read more
Both Ichiban no Daimaou and Hataraku Maou-sama! have a Demon King who doesn't fulfil his 'evil role. Ichiban has the main discover he is destined to become the demon king, however works towards a peaceful goal, whereas Hataraku has the initially evil and eventually settling on a peaceful life for himself.
Both series have the powerful 'hero' type female who opposes the demon lord, but necessarily act upon (kill) the demon lord for various reasons. If you like one series then you're bound to like the other, they are of a similar concept, but different enough to enjoy without feeling like you have already seen a part of the same series.
-Both MC are Demon Kings
-They both have some magical girls on thieir side
-Both Demon Kings can be really evil but they can still be really sweet and nice at the same time
-In both anime we see some interesting character developements
Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou is ecchi while Hataraku Maou-sama isn't
Both of the animes are focused on Demon Lords, both of them have some sort of sidekick, that is loyal to them and tries to help them achieve their goals. And then there is a female character that likes him, but fights him because he is a Demon Lord, but she then grows to like him over time.
Both have demon lords who have lost their power and are struggling to get it back.
Both are actually nice in spite of being demon lords and are completely over-powered. Both the demon lords have female tsunderes who try to make sure the demon lord doesn't cause any trouble. Both anime have characters who are dense and hell and build up harems
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 using quite the same setup for the characters minus the traits and theme, it's just that Hataraku Maou-sama consist of more story and unique well brought humor to compensate the lesser fighting scenes, which i prefer to love more.
Both MCs lives like a bachelor-livings. Hataraku Maou Sama is a demon while in One Punch Man, he is a hero. What makes both series are similar is their comedy style that there is no episode won't make you laugh loudly all over your house.
Both main protagonists are lazy but have extreme power and have extremely loyal sidekicks. Hataraku Maou-sama! shares the same kind of humor that will be making you fall in love with the main character, and the stupid humor that both shows share.
Both have similar characters, their actions are very similar. Also a format of humor based on simple things, but quickly turning into an action. The cheerful and absurd atmosphere in both shows will cheer up at any moment.
Both series have a protagonist who is overpowered to the point where they don't take their fights seriously and care more about their mundane life, leading to comedic situations. If you enjoy watching comedic shows that don't take themselves too seriously, you'll probably enjoy both the series.
This recommendation doesn’t make sense on the surface. However, both shows, despite having wildly different plots, have a similar style of humor that derives from combining the supernatural and the mundane. If you like one, you might like the other.
Almost everyone has seen One Punch Man at this point, but I think if you enjoyed it you will also enjoy Hataraku Maou-sama! Both have action and comedy elements mixed into it, but many differences. One Punch Man has a lot more action than Hataraku Maou-sama! but both have a similar comedy style. A lot of laugh out loud moments in both.
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.
Both shows center around main characters who come from a demon realm and end up in the human world due to being chased out of their realm due to the heroes of their worlds, and both these shows show the struggles the main characters face as they adapt to the lives of mere humans and try and avoid the fate of being defeated by the heroes of their worlds. They both also have good comedy.
The big demon lord, the greatest, biggest and more respected being in the other world, constantly selfish of his own presence, and humillating humans as much he can do, has been exposed to the most patetic universe he could go, a world without magic where he can´t activate his powers that turns him into the most patetic being in the universe. A HUMAN! Now as his main goal is to turn back to his own world he must fight against some of the mighest challenges in the daily life, like waking up in the morning to go to work, to well at job for gaining money, use money for gaining food and eat read more
Very similar. Both main characters are from a devil realm that are forced out of it by "the good guys" and are sent into the human world. Both have to make a living by working, while trying to seek revenge on the ones who did this to them.
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.
Though took place in different timelines, both series featured a hero working together with a demon lord. The heroes are a bit hesitant at first, but later warms up to the demon lord as the story progresses. Both stories are also light-hearted with comedies mixed in it.
In both series, there's a similar feeling and the main male character seems to have similar personalities.
There is some sense of supernatural themes but mostly presented in a fun way. With that, there's the comedy and humorous dialogues thrown together.
Although the settings are a bit different, Maoyu and Hataraku Maou-sama! maintains a similar background involving shaping a world (although in different ways).
It has the same kind of character development around Hero, Satan, and friends.
These anime's rely heavily on comedy and pulls it off quite well.
The art is appealing and characters are appealing. The subtle plot twists make them worth watching.
Most notable similarities: Demon king, and Hero.
Hataraku instead has a male demon king/lord/whatever and has a female lead hero/tsundere/whatnot. But a notable difference is that there is no romance between the to leads (at the moment). Beginning seems kind of rushed compared to the manga (same with Maoyuu) but can be quite enjoyable nonetheless.
The two have the same demon to human kind of relationship except one was set in some alternate middle ages setting, while the other was set in modern times. Another differences, the head demon from one anime was a woman, while in the other is a teenage boy, though he's actually older than one thinks.
Both have a hero, both have a demon king (although it is reversed in Maoyuu).
In both we see that the hero (Yuusha) goes to the demon/devil king to destroy them, but instead the hero ends up cooperating one way or another because of different circumstances.
Hataraku is like Maoyuu, just set in modern times with less politics and more comedy.
If you like romance between demons or demon and human, then these two are must watch. Maou sama is light hearted and more comic but no ecchi but Maou Yuusha has very serious tone, economics related and have many ecchi moments too. Maou sama has human world where demon/god are trying to adjust themselves so that they can live properly. In the other hand Maou Yuusha is placed in ancient time and full of politics.
Contains demons from another realm inhabiting a particular region in the world and coexisting with humans. Both demons and humans alike detest each other because humans see the demons as evil beings and kill them and demons see humans as evil because they get killed without a valid reason, until they blame each other for apocryphal reasons.
Magic can be used for combat and contains an overpowered MC.
Okay, this is dead obvious. I mean, it's like the Hero and the Demon King just swapped bodies!
Maou looks a lot like the Hero from Maoyuu and Emi looks a lot like the Demon King. And Ente Isla just has the same vibes as the world Maoyuu is set in. It has the same political turmoil and everything. Overall, besides a lot of very obvious similarities, these two shows just FEEL alike.
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.
Although Ao no exorcist isn't comedy, it has some funny scenes with a good character development in a universe with humans and demons, as well as Hataraku Maou-sama!;
Both have good fight scenes and characters with supernatural powers;
Both have some demons that are trying to conquer the land of humans;
Rin and Maou have similar personality;
The art is similar.
Both anime have similar male protagonis personlaity and dealing with being demonic. Ao no exorcist has more serious problem while hataraku has more funny scene. And both series have 2 world (earth and demon) that are involved.
Both series got 8/10 from me
I liked them in a similar way. The main character is kind of evil but kind of not and also kind of lovably enthusiastic.
Let's be honest there is the demon thing, there are demons in both being funny and morally ambiguous and some attractive demon guys being attractive.
Also there is a love interest who is the really cute, girly, passive character with huge boobs. If you liked one character I feel that you would like the other.
These are similar with the same concepts of demons and the king Satan. There are also heroes plotting to kill the seemingly bad guy (MC). The only diference is in the plots and overview of the characters.
Contains demons and humans coexisting in the same society. Some demons are hated for either stereotypical or personal reasons. Magic exists and is used for combat purposes. It also includes some humor and fanservice. May contain some clichés about evil demons becoming good people and working alongside humans.
Both series have a demon/half-demon, that transforms (to some degree) when he uses his full power, as its main character.
While hataraku maou-sama is more of a comedy both series have comedic and serious moments, ao no exorcist is more action packed but hataraku maou-sama have a few epic battles in it as well.
If you enjoyed one you will probably like the other.
The both main protagonist has quite a similar personality.
Hataraku Maou-sama! and Ao no Exorcist has a similar story concept, like they are swapped. Both Satan has mention in those series.
-Both have a similar battle type and supernatural powers.
-Comedic and drama
-The both male protagonist is half demon/human can transform in any state
-Additionally, I would appreciate to have Hataraku Maou-sama! to have the same total eps of Ao no Exorcist but I'm still puzzled of the manga are on status.
-Both should get a season
Blue Exorcist and Devil Works at a Burger-I MEAN DEVIL IS A PART-TIMER, have a lot in common. Both of the main characters are good for comedic relief. Both have something relating to Satan. They both have groups of people along with a female who can kick butt and the girl who’s shy, but fierce.
Both feature part-timers.
Both features a plot where a hero is sent to another world to live in a new culture.
Both feature a high level of actual enjoyable humour.
Both main characters are enthusiastic, to say the least...
Both have a group of friends predominantly causing drama for the main character.
I would say that these animes have a similar feel to them. They start off very intense, more or less, and devolve into plotless comedies. Of course Hataraku Maou-sama has more of a subtle underlying plot with the ships and the aspect that he might return, but most of that isn't in the anime. The feel is similar and the comedy is similar.
You got comedy with these, hey it's fun to watch the difference between someone who has no powers at the start, whilst having a Goddess that has little power, then compare it to a demon king who's just living life working part time, whilst putting up with a knight who tried to kill him.
They're good to watch with some friends on a weekend, or alone.
In both series, there is a lighthearted tone. More importantly though, they involve a main character who is a demon known for having powers but seems to be sealed away.
The main male protagonist's life also seems to strange forever after a certain event and they are forced to adapt to their new lifestyle. They also seem to have a rocky relationship with the main female character.
Both series involves some action and there is a theme of 'conquering the world'.
Both series also features another female character who seems to be interested in the main male protagonist.
Both light comedies that deal with demons, where the main character is forced to adapt to a completely different lifestyle. In Hataraku, it's switching to a completely different universe or should I say time period. In Beelzebub, Oga must live with Baby Beel, and adapt a new life with him.
Both anime also involve the aspect of "taking over the worlds/humans."
Hataraku Maou-sama is about 'Devil king Sadao' and how he adapts to living on Earth with little money. Beelzebub is similar because it handles demons in the same, humorous way and also shows the struggles of demons who have come to Earth. They are also both very funny.
Both have little things in common, like really good comedy timings, with hint of romantics. I just love the idea about having to know about a world of fantasy that does not exist through the eyes we perceive , and both Beelzebub and Hataraku Maou-sama! succeed on catering to these fantasies. The ideas conveyed are likely very original and entertaining, and that is why both have a really high spot on my list. Concluding it, I might say that the romantics in both the series aren't overly exaggerated, and in my opinion that is how I like it (without cliched harem and ecchi plots).  read more
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.
Both of these series, there's the theme of fantasy and one of the main protagonists represents a 'hero' from their world. However, they encounter various conflicts that involves other characters and events that puts their lives at risk.
The main male protagonist in both series are independent and does care about others despite their outer personalities. They also seem to have an female acquittance who often gets into arguments with.
There is drama, action, comedy and fantasy themes in both series.
Both have the same theme, except the main character in one anime was a guy who happens to was a bit devilish than the demon girl, while in the other anime the guy is a demon, but behaves like a gentleman.
Both shows have a base on, what happens after the final battle.
In Hagure, you follow the hero after he defeats the dark lord and in Hataraku you follow the dark lord after being beaten.
Hagure and Hataraku both where good shows, both had a good amount of comedy in them. Hagure definitely had more ecchi. If you liked one then there is a high chance you will like the other.
Both shows revolve around the relationship between a Hero and a demon, opening when the Hero ends up defeating a demon and driving them to our world (in "Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero", the hero brings a demon's daughter to his world after killing her father, while in "The Devil is a Part-Timer, the Devil is driven to our world after being defeated by the hero). The two shows feature a number of the same genres (action, comedy and fantasy) and the female leads share the same voice actress in both languages (Yoko Hikasa and Felecia Angelle).
I prefer "The Devil is a Part-Timer" as it has better characters, is more original and is just a lot more fun overall. read more
These are both lighthearted fantasies that derive comedy value from the premise of incompetent invaders of the human world. Intent on world domination, but woefully out of their element, they find their first challenge is taking on a part-time job.
Fun? Comedy? Working? Both of these shows has them.
In fact, Hataraku Maou-sama! and Shinryaku! Ika Musume presents a working environment for viewers that can be seen as humorous with a balance of realism and supernatural theme mixed in.
The main female protagonist in both series also has an ambition to "take over the world and conquer it all".
Both series are quite lighthearted and makes fun of characters who are not so normal.
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.
Both comedies are really alike and are both hilarious
Both anime have the main character working in a restaurant
Jun Satou and Hiroomi Souma are like Ashiya Shirou and Maou Sadou
Both main characters have someone they hate and fight with, but also have a bit of romance between them too
"Just another day working with my friends for the company." The main characters in here are basically working to help their financial needs or just for their own spare time. There are wacky situations, somewhat slapstick, and the character interactions were enjoyable to watch. There is somewhat a romance development between the main characters.
The difference is that Maou-sama is a fantasy-action genre, where a demon main character transports to the human world and finds a job for his next goal. Working is somewhat a normal type of work, with slapstick moments.
While these two anime have different settings, they are both comedy anime with a similar vibe. The main protagonist (Akihisa Yoshii and Mao Sadao) in both series are pretty stupid when it comes to women and reality. They both have a similar style of humor and are very hilarious to watch. They also share similar voice actors in the Funimation dub (Josh Grelle voices both Akihisa Yoshii and Mao Sadao in the Funimation English dub of both shows). If you liked one, you'd like the other.
thyeyre both extremly funny,one deals with not so smart highschoolers to a demon king who works at mcdonalds. they both hve fighting and most of all insane laughter.(dont watch to much in one day you might gain contagous laughter)its hard notb to laugh at verything and everyone
Hataraku Maou-sama! and Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu. Two anime with very strange (but hilarious) titles. How do these relate to each other? Well both main characters (Maou in Hataraku and Yoshii in Baka-Test) are both clueless when it comes to girls, or reality. They both have different reasons, but what makes them so appealing is that they are very naive and unaware of many thing that have been going around them. Another way this is similar is that it shows the differentiation of social classes. In Hataraku, Maou is stuck living in a single room in an old building, due to the fact that his only job is at MagRonald's (parody of McDonald's), while Emi (the antagonist who later turns into a protagonist), is living in a more lofty apartment, due to the fact that she has a better job. This can be seen in Baka-Test, due to the fact that Class F has nothing in it, while Class A has many, many advantages, such as private PC's, air-cons, heaters, plasma TV's, etc. Both anime show the split in social classes, which is a theme that is often used in other anime, but not as ridiculously used as this. Both of these anime have very unique plots, and they both include the use of some form of fighting mechanism (magic in Hataraku, shoukanjuu in Baka-Test). read more
these two anime aren't exactly similar because the characters in these two anime have different motives, but trying to conquer it just what makes both of these really funny. definitely recommend if you need a bit of a laugh.
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.
Angels and demons coming to earth, only to be influenced by Otaku culture in some way. Also, the roles get reversed where the devil/ demons become the good/ innocent ones, and the angels are the one perceived to be the bad guy/ slacker.
- angels and demons get along for some reason
- angels and demons try to blend in with society
- both main characters reveal an unexpected side of their character after going to the human world
- both main characters' best friend tries to bring them back to their original self
- restrictions on their magical powers
Good clean fun. Short and sweet with witty humor, likable characters and treats for people who pay attention to details/things happening in the background.
Both series involve not-so-normal people working very normal jobs. Hilarity ensues.
It is a hilarious anime that combines fantasy, comedy, and action. its features a unique and interesting premise with a great cast of characters. The humor in this anime is over-the-top and silly, but it works really well and will keep you laughing throughout.
The emphasis on the kind of relationship and interactions between a Hero and a Maou matches, you will see how this anime will turn your mindset just like Hataraku Maou does, except this one gets lot more powerful and direct!
In Both Anime, Protagonist are Overpowered Demon Lords!!
Both Anime show Friendly Rivalry between The Hero and The Demon Lord!!
"The Devil is a part timer" is a Reverse Isekai whilst "The Misfit of Demon King Acadamy" is a Fantasy!!
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.
Both are as interesting as heck! The plot-lines are absolutely fantastic. The jokes really hit me hard while watching both series. Both stories take place where the earth has another realm, which is actually something that is especially unusual for comedy anime. The animes' endings have a superb overall aspect to them! I hope this is useful for everyone searching for good anime to watch! :)
Both anime are like the reverse version of each other.. they share the similar idea of how does it feel to live & work in another world. In Hataraku Maou-sama, the MCs went to human world and work in there, while in Outbreak Company the MCs went to the fantasy world for work purpose.
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.
Male protagonist is some sort of evil entity that the female antagonist is send to watch over / kill but she begins to befriend him. In addition to that, both protagonists lost their powers or are not fully aware of them. Timeline for both is modern Japan.
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.
Both follow a demon protagonist aiming to fulfill their "evil" duties.
Both are comedic, slice of life shows with fantasy elements as their backdrop.
Most of all, the comedy in both anime relies on said demons trying to do their duties... only to fail or have other issues hold them back.
What if two powerful entities from two opposite ends of the spectrum, Demon king and Hero, Magic girl and Demon clan, have to live a normal modern urban life together? both shows tell such kind of story in the form of comedy.
there both comedy animes with supernatural/mythological beings
hataraku maou sama is about a demon lord that flees from a war hes losing and comes to earth. he has to learn how to fit in with humans until he can find a way to return to his world. he gets a job at Mcronalds (mcdonalds) LOL.
they are both really funny and entertaining.
Have this 'fighting' but not really that serious and is hilarious. There are lots of humor in it. What I mean by lots are PLENTIFUL! I would like to recommend the other if you like the other one. Why? It will make you laugh your ass off like what it did on me. Both have UNIQUE and FUNNY characters.
Both comedies feature religious figures (Buddha/Jesus in Saint☆Onii-san and Satan/Alciel/[another that I won't spoil] in Hataraku Maou-sama!) rooming in Tokyo apartment complexes. The deities are shown living as regular people--worrying about expenses, fearing their landlords, etc.
These felt really similar in the type of comedy used and the laughs that it brought with it. While it involved a different setting, style, and background, both of these are among my favourite comedic anime.
Hataraku Maou-sama is similar to Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun, because both animes share witty humor, odd characters, bizarre scenarios, and the main characters being a total dunce. Definitely recommend this anime, you'll laugh your butt off!
Both anime share a pointless plot at first glance, but as you continue watching each episode, they consist of a good variety of action and comedy in a unique way that many other anime hasn't really portrayed in a while with a refreshing concept on the comedic moments that will make you die of laughter.
Both comedies with some action on the side, the two focus almost more on entertaining you than telling a story (which isn't a bad thing as they are both VERY entertaining), and both see the main thrown into a world they do not understand (much more so in Maou-sama). One major difference is Ben-To has much more ecchi.
Action comedies with an absurd plot that is well executed so it doesn't actually feel all that absurd. Main characters look a bit similar too, as does the style of art/animation. Both also have harem elements though Ben-To has more ecchi fanservice.
Similar feels and much enjoyment all around, definitely recommend checking out the other one if you liked either one.
Very similar humour
Similar characters and art style
deals with supernatural/heaven/hell themes
Male protagonist surrounded by girls
I really enjoy both series as they can be very dark and serious when need be and also light and funny at all the right moments. There is also far more to the characters in both anime than first meets the eye
I really recommend 'kore wa zombie' for you who like or love to watch 'hataraku'. Basicly Sadao and Ayumu have not a really specific similarity, at least they not a human. Hataraku is a top class demon, yup he is Satan, King of all Demon, and ayumu? lol haha he just a decaying zombie who cant stand still in under sunlight. But i really enthusiast both this this anime. The atmosphere, climate, and story delivery was really good. As I say these anime will take us how a non-human living in human world and the COMEDY quite entertaining.
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...
-Both have supernatural deity elements.
-Both have action scenes, though Haiyore! is more built around the romcom genre.
-Both have a varied cast of characters.
-Both are about deities living in the human world.
-Both are pretty amusing.
Both anime here feature an excellent combination of comedy and action.
All the characters are great and enjoyable.
Both feature MC's that came from another world.
Nyaruko-san is more parody based comedy while The Devil is a Part timer is well done witty comedy.
Gate is kinda the vice versa version of devil is a part timer, where humans go into a new world and adapt, devil is a part timer being the supernatural beings in the human world. Both show's have similar interactions between the two groups and both shows deal with an overlying theme of bonding.
Both have kindhearted and likeable main characters who also double up as a devil/demon lord.
The tone of Maou-sama is a lot more lighthearted whereas Crybaby is more graphic but both shows have a similar premise.
They both have similarities that really hit me when I finished the show. The main character has issues with the main girl. Both have magic and rom-com moments. I think both are amazing and great and if you like one, you will most definitely like this one.
Both animes have a slight romance built into them with similar art work. they are feel good shows. One is a fantasy and the other a 'slice of life' anime however, the underlying sentiment in both of them are the same.
We have pretty cool main character surrounded by group of friends who are all similar in both series - lead female being tsundere and certainly having feelings for main character, other, pretty cute and kinda loud deredere who eventually starts to develop feelings for him too. Then we have another girl with our male, and so little harem is ready. Not to mention another male character, sweet and helpful one, loved by everybody and some other friends too. Both are romance and have slice of life themes. Both in their own way touch 'fantasy' world, though in Toradora it's just matter of title, and in Hataraku there is whole universe created.
After finishing Hataraku, I had feeling that I saw something similar before and then connected it to Toradora. I had much fun watching those animes. read more
Both are comedy centric shows with similar tone and artistic style. They also have similarly entertaining characters. The Devil is a Part Timer (Hataraku Maou-sama!) has a few more action scenes and has very little romance, as opposed to Toradora! which has a lot of romance. However, both shows are great and if you enjoy one you'll most likely enjoy the other.
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 anime are comedic series with an environment of adults and the place they work!
-There's side high school characters
-The female lead and male lead doesnt get along and fights a lot
-Both anime focuses on three main characters
-Similar comedic style
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
"Isekai Maou to Shoukan Shoujo no Dorei Majutsu" is similar to this anime in some ways, instead of a deamon lord the main character is the devil of another world/dimension. The main character is also pretty strong and turns out to be a better person than to expect from the devil.
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 like either show, especially how the comedy mixes with action in it, then you should certainly give the other one a try. read more
Both feature a male and female MC that are sent to a different world. No Game No Life being a world of games, and Devil is a Part Timer being Earth.
Both of them quickly adapt to their surroundings in time.
Both male MC's are great at their tasks in the new world and have goals in mind for the future, both being to change the world.
Both have excellent light novels that continue the story where the anime left off.
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.
Although they have extremely different premises, they incorporate the same type of humour. If you're looking for something fun and absurd, Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou and Hataraku Maou-sama! will fit this requirement!
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 anime contains good mixture between action and humour! The main characters are not from this world plus they manage to get humans tangled in their mess. Both anime have male protagonist who delivers in the action and humour but gets shafted by the female characters. Definitely similar level of enjoyment.
The MC's are both careless teenage boys who are unaffected by what is going on around them. Though they also show great empathic ability especially regarding their friends. They are generally laid back and funny.
Both shows deal with the aftermath of a group of people being spirited away into another realm. Both animes are a blend of present reality and fantasy and both have a light hearted feel to them; although at times things can get dark, but this just makes both shows stronger.
Both are excellent series!
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.
Both series involve characters that are from another dimension/world and come to Earth. Both involve great amount of comedy. Even though, To LOVE-Ru has aliens instead of Demons and it's more focused on romance.
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).
There is a colourful cast of characters for both shows and are quite entertaining. Although the plotlines are extremely different, people who enjoyed one of them are likely to enjoy the other too.
I know this those two Anime are Different but heard me out.
Both of Then is About someone who needs to live a new life in other to Survive, in Hataraku Maou-Sama! Sadao Maou is a Demon King from Ente Isla and He Transported to Japan in Other to Survive the Battle he was Having with Emilia the Hero and now he needs to Work in Rc. Donald tho, as for Sansha Sanyou the Main Character (Sanyou) was a Rich Girl who was Happy until one day her Dad got Bankrupt and she was Sent to a "Poor" School while her Dad Finds a new Job.
Also both of then have a very Similar Comedy Humour as well tho, it's very Goofy and Humoured in my opinion tho.
The only difference between the two is the Hataraku Maou-Sama! Is a Action/Comedy Anime while Sansha Sanyou is a Slice Of Life/Comedy Anime.
I do recommend both of them if you're looking for a Comedy Anime to Watch tho. read more
Both feature part-timers.
Both features a plot where a hero is sent to another world to live in a new culture.
Both feature a high level of actual enjoyable humour.
Both main characters are enthusiastic, to say the least...
Both have a group of friends predominantly causing drama for the main character.
-Both of the main characters Maou/Sebastian are Demons, who acts kind of very nice and kind way, also they have a strong confidence to serve with them (Maou: As a employee job for serving a fast food chain to the customers) and (Sebastian: As a butler being a servant job to serve with his master Ciel Phantomhive). They have powers too, But they may be bad sometimes.
-Having a conflicts and confrontation of Demons and Angels.
Both are shows wherein generally cordial, family-loving men have to hide their true roles/jobs from a particular person while cracking jokes funny enough to make you fart even if you have constipation. Of course, Kakushi Gotou has to hide his illustration work from his daughter, Hime, while Satan has to hide the fact that he is Lucifer in the flesh from Chiho, a girl at his workplace.
Both protagonists, Satan and Kakushi, are stuck between the painstaking difficulties of their day jobs as well as going through the effort of not revealing their true selves to whoever they don't want finding out about it. This leads to some hilarious moments that are built-up using the character relationships and the workplace antics of these two men, especially with how determined or despaired they can get about their occupation.
In the end, despite Satan and Kakushi's efforts to keep up their carefully-constructed facade, someone they don't want finding out about it finds out. They don't really care though, because both Satan and Kakushi are decent people. That's if you consider a hundred-year-old demonspawn a person though... read more
- Both mc's are demon lords looking to conquer
- Both mc's are more good than they are evil
- Both mc's have loyal servants/followers who help them for what they're planning
- Both animes have a female hero who wants to kill the mc but has a change of heart after seeing their good side
- Both animes have comedy
- Both animes have action
The only difference is that Ochi Mono RPG has sex scenes with some comedy while TDIAPT has some romance and its fun to watch with lots of comedy.
The Eminence in Shadow reminds me of The Devil Is A Part Timer a lot with the Isekai aspect and the fantasy aspects too. The dub is funny and 99 percent of all the jokes go well same with The Eminence in Shadow. I feel like both of these animes match like a puzzle piece in the best way possible.
These two animes are very similar in ways. First of all they both feature demons as enemies. But Hataraku Maou-sama! is more of an isekai anime?. Kimetsu no Yaiba has "Demon Slayers.'' as you can tell they slay/kill demons. And about Hataraku Maou-sama! cant really explain the anime because its.. complicated.. just watch it if you want! It also has a season 2 airing right now!
Both animes involve a demon getting forced to live in the human world and live life as an ordinary human plus there's a lot more supernatural beings added into the mix. Also involves a relationship where one is constantly trying to kill the other but they end up becoming closer in the process
"Devil is a part-timer" is also a comedy isekai. In this case, the world is the earth itself but with the devil as the main character and he is overpowered and extremely serious from time to time just like the cautious hero haha.
Both anime contain demons from another realm coexisting with society with the MC starting from evil or detested to a good and understanding being well liked by peers. Humans and demons alike detest one another for being seen as evil in religion for humans and other apocryphal accusations against each other.
Contains magic used for combat purposes and an MC that can be pretty lazy at times and OP when angry.
1.Both have main characters which are transported to the modern day Japan and have to depend on the modern society to survive in the new world.
2.Daily life of the characters in the new world and their connections to their own worlds leads to hilarious situations in their daily lives.
Okay this one is a kinda strange bridge that I didn't realized previously, but both are about fantasy characters summoned to the real world and having to deal with the consequences of how the real world effects them. They're very different in tone. Re:Creators is a drama battle, while Devil is a Part-Timer is a fall from grace comedy. Emy and Selestia also have kinda similar character design, but Selestia luckily definitely isn't a tsudere.
Both these shows My Next Life As a Villainess and The Devil Is a Part-Timer are great isekai shows which put a twist on the genre, which has come to a point where a lot of isekai shows are the same. The only thing which could deter you from is that My Next Life As a Villainess is getting a second season and after 9 years The Devil Is a Part-Timer hasn't gotten a second season.
This might sound odd in regards to the fact that it's even a recommendation, but I'll just mention it as it is my opinion on the matter.
For years, we've watched anime with larger than life heroes and villains, most of which have accomplished a lot and established themselves as separable from the common kin, and can do things that no normal man cannot.
Back when I was watching Naruto Shippuden, I saw this one filler moment; specifically an entire episode purely based on Itachi cooking eggs. And it just dawned on me, for someone as skillful as Itachi; someone who's mastered all in terms of becoming a ninja and can complete a mission given to him, no matter how heartbreaking or mentally it would affect him; he was dedicated to his missions. And to be honest, I always found him rather interesting .. in the funny idea of not being able to cook eggs properly. It was rather humbling.
These two anime are a great match, as they show characters in situations where they have be like everyone else, and in my opinion, it's one of the coolest ideas ever in fiction. xD
Think of Arnold Schwarzenneger's Kindergarten Cop or say, Jackie Chan's Rob-B Hood. (Check those out btw, they're good)
Because it throws in a character in situations, where in my opinion, makes us feel like we're learning what they're learning. And that's awesome, and pretty humbling, too.
If you like the one, you'll also like the other as both can be pretty funny as well. I think, in my opinion, you'll enjoy these 2 series. Even if they're clearly few and far in between in terms of the "type" of story. read more
Are you a person who works every day? Do you wish to see someone else relate to how you're feeling? Are you just like everyone else wishing to become a successful person in the future? Are you may or may not be familiar with the term "slice of life"? Then these 2 works are just for you.
The reason I made this recommendations is simple: Jobs.
Jobs aren't something we actually enjoy, but they are, in the grand of scheme of things, something we have to do to survive. To earn, to eat, and to continue living with a roof on our head. But.. that doesn't mean that it's ALL BORING. Because of the way life works, things can happen unexpectedly, especially when you have friends by your side which is why life can be a blast.
In Japan, mangaka take breaks every now and then, in order to have a vacation somewhere or to find a new location or setting for the manga they're writing. In Imouto, they show you EXACTLY how things work from behind the scenes. In Hatarakou, they show characters having vacations while working. Typical life.
I think if you're someone who works as an employee, or an office, or even.. just someone who works a 9-5 job, these can really be your fancy. Because not only does it represent your life as well as others, it's exactly why life along with reality can be interesting despite being unfair.
As Forrest Gump once said, "Life is like a box of chocolates. You'll never know what you're gonna get." read more
Both shows are about the devil who leaves behind his homeland and ends up living on earth as a normal human being. There, he meets some very colourful characters and in order to pay for his living expenses, he's forced to get a part-time job as well. Eventually, the demon lord loves his human life so much that he decides to live on earth permanently.
Both have black-haired demon kings as the lead, both with an axious, devoted silver-haired attendant. Both stories explore the conflicts between demons and humans. Both have a solid grasp of humor and story moving the plot forward. Both have exclamation points in the title. Eeeeey?
Kyou Kara Maou! begins when normal Japanese boy Yuuri Shibuya is flushed down a toilet (yes, literally) and is transported to a fantasy land filled with 'costumed' citizens who speak a strange language he can't understand at first, is determined to be the next Demon King, and is put in charge of a massive feud between his people the demons and that world's humans. Yuuri is a pacifist by nature, though he exhibits awesome power when injustice occurs and his demon side takes over. Coincidentally, he also ends up engaged to a pretty blond boy who hates him and surrounded by erroneously handsome young men who protect him and offer him advice (or rein him in, as the case may be) in times of strife.
Hataraku Maou-sama! felt like a crazy reverse!verse of the former to me, in which the solemn lead who is decidedly not a pacifist is transported to modern Japan, where he gets a job as a fast-food worker (the exact opposite of a king), has to learn to pay bills, and struggle to accept humans instead of burn their homes to the ground. It was hilarious to watch and compare the two, having been a huge fan of KKM back in my youth. The story is equal parts funny and serious, with good intrigue behind the scenes and a cast that at first felt simple on the surface, but all had a good heft and hidden depth to them. It explored the human/demon conflict from a less idealistic side, and I enjoyed that moral questioning throughout.
Both shows are great fun on their own, though KKM's beginning episode animation definitely hasn't aged well (it gets better as the budget increased). I really enjoyed both, but I get a kick out of comparing them intellectually as a similar but reversed story.  read more
The main character isn't human. They both have supernatural powers. Both are hilarious, although Cuticle Tantei Inaba has more comedy. Maou-sama is a little more serious. There are scenes in both series where you can't stop laughing.
Well, in essence, both series involves characters working at a new environment for both personal and financial reasons. Then,t here's the drama from both series as some main characters just doesn't seem to stand each other.
Both series has great animation artwork and more of a lighthearted tone of presenting its stories.
Both series also has humor but also some tense moments. Along with that, there are hints of romance between characters and deals with how the characters adjusts to their current situation in life.
ok so basically in both of these anime its a battle of Good vs Evil right in our backyard of our own neighborhood based mostly in Kawasaki City Kanagawa and the Good characters are the mean ones and the evil ones are the Upstanding Citizens Of Society
I have to say that when I watched Trinity Seven, I was the hole time thinking...
It's so like Hataraku Mahou-sama, but... Trinity is like...
Something was bothering me the whole time watching.
The plot was not interesting and the world construction was funny made.
The jokes are funny and a lot Fun service ist there.
You should watch Hataraku Mahou-sama, why? It's better.
Okey, what's similar :
- Main Male Charakter is a Devil.
- Both M.M.C. pretty clever (that's not always in echi/harem Anime so).
- The girls are sweet.
- Both M.M.C. are overpowered, but they can't use it instantly.
- Main Female Character ist hot and interesting.
- Echi/Harem/Action/Comedy  read more
Comedic element in both series is in the viewer's ability to spot small details. Both FMP Fumoffu and Hataraku heavily feature slapstick humor and hilarious scenes through episode progression and background action.
Although they are not similar in premise, both series involves a supernatural being who sets foot in the modern world. They are confused on how the present world world works around them but gets more used to it as they experience the modern life.
Both series has a lot of funny dialogues, gags, and interactions between the main characters.
There's also some action, drama, as well as misunderstandings usually involving the main characters.
The main character from both series are voiced by the same seiyuu: Ohsaka Ryouta. While in one series he is the demon lord and other a detective. Their undercover name is very similar too. In Hataraku, he is called Sado Maou and in Hamataora, it is Sato Nice. They both love Katsu-don too. Both filled with comedy and action at the same time.
Bizarre comedy that relies with non human character standpoint indifference, only difference is that Haruhi setting is about school while other Maou is to restaurant, Main Protagonist is unaware of their own eccentricity to other people and their normal environment to make a slapstick.
Both titles deal with demons living on Earth. Both shows have a good balance between comedy and action. The humor in both shows are absolutely hilarious and the action will keep you entertained. If you liked one, you may like the other.
Anime takes place in medieval type setting but now in the modern world
In Ixion Saga DT main character gets transported into a medieval world while in Hataraku- Demon king gets transported to modern day Tokyo.
Amazing humor. Flabbergasting twists. Both are about human world and demon world. There are Demon Lords. Hiro Shimono everywhere. Both are outstanding comedies. Both are entertaining and sometimes touching. NOT TO BE MISSED.
The demons look somewhat similiar to the ones of HMS!
- The Main-Protagonist "takes a ride" from another world (aka. Hell) to the world of the living
- Has the same type of jokes as those so characteristic for HMS!
- Demons over-all
- same type of unusual well-so unique and dramatic Camera angles
- That same "Charmy feeling"
- Attitudes and Behaviour
-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 or not. 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 entertaining to watch.
I feel like Hataraku is an introduction to the slice of life genre, especially since most people before actually watching it think it's boring (including me).  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.
Why haven't you already watched this!! Demon king super strong tsundere girl but no echi but it was just perfect you have to watch this if you like to laugh and love romance animes ps if you are a fan of devil animes you will love it
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.
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
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.
