Same type of main character the type that becomes stronger by interacting with females

It wouldn't be surprising to see 'Strike the Blood' popped up in people's minds if they had previously seen 'Toaru Majutsu no Index'. In terms of superiority, 'Toaru Majutsu no Index' is the master while 'Strike the Blood' is the apprentice in a world filled with various supernatural beings. Both these series demonstrate that with teamwork and perseverance, battles can be won by either single-handedly overpowering your opponents or having support beside you in the most dire of situations. 'Toaru Majutsu no Index' draws upon different perceptions from various characters not to mention multiple main ones who could form a connection with the viewers with only  read more

The main characters from both series are very similar. Harutora from Tokyo Ravens and Kojou are both dense, unlucky but awesome/epic at the same time. They were living a normal life until their lives changed. In Tokyo Raven: Harutora became an Onmyoji while in Strike The Blood: Kojou is a vampire. Both series takes place in a modern city filled with interesting characters. Add some supernatural elements and mystery too. Both series airing at the same time.

Similarities: Both have the same high ranking evil beings who weren't evil at all, but still have to be watched over by female main character to act as their nanny whom were also assign to eliminate them if necessary. Both have the same supernatural, ecchi, action genre. Both have the same school setting. Dissimilarities: The main character in one anime has a dragon as his familiar, while the other one only has his friends. One has an extra harem and romance genre, while the other has vampire as its extra genre. The main character in one anime will one way or the other have to rely on his nanny to satisfy  read more

They both have to do with supernatural powers and of course WOMEN! Lets face it the reason DxD is so great is because of the comedy that the Harems bring and it is no different for Strike the Blood. Both have really cool fight scenes, babes, and comedy

These two anime both feature a futuristic world which is filled with magic and magic-related elements. Strike the Blood goes a bit further by also adding in some supernatural elements. They both contain action and romance, but Strike the Blood also adds in some ecchi and comedy. Both anime also feature annoying, yet skillful female main characters. You have Miyuki from Mahouka who calls her brother Tatsuya by "Onii-sama" about a hundred times per episode and Yukina from Strike the Blood who insists on interrupting Kojou's catchphrase "This is my fight" with her infamous "No Senpai, this is OUR fight."

Similar atmosphere/feel, both are sci-fi/magic-orientated, mostly female cast with one guy in the middle of it, have separate 2-4 episode arcs that are not that related to each other. Only difference is that Railgun revolves around one girl more and Stb revolves around one guy and his magical harem (plus there's more ecchi in the latter) 
report Recommended by Mayuka
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.

Relationships between the main characters and their friends have many similarities, and this is a big thing because personal relationships are important in both series. Also one can say that Strike the Blood is more “calm” version of Date A Live in this matter. 
report Recommended by dog_funtom
One powerful guy surrounded by a bunch of girls. Guy has a lot of power/potential and the girls are pretty powerful too. The difference would be that Arata is a lot more funnier then Kojou and not as dense. 
report Recommended by Volfenstein
Strike the Blood and the Monogatari series have many striking similarities. They both have a main lead male protagonist adjusting to becoming a vampire unwillingly. Also, a strong lead female protagonist who becomes romantically involved with the lead male. They also share meeting/helping various other girls with different powers and capabilities along the way. I would definitively recommend Monogatari if you enjoyed the Strike the Blood series for sure, and visa-versa.  
report Recommended by EddyBoi
Both series are similar with a male and female protagonist involved with the supernatural which leads to many action scenes. The female leads are quite similar as they are always with their "sempai" (male protagonist), and believing they are perverts.  
report Recommended by Mr_DaftPunk
Both have a lazy male protagonists that want to live a normal life but get dragged into heap-loads of drama. Both are OP in their own way, and as far as I know, from when I post this (which is on episode 8), it seams that Strike the Blood is developing a harem. :)

Both are about vampires and have unique ideas about vampires. They are both about a world where both humans and mythical creatures exist in a modren japan The main charecter bares a burden and likes to be left a lone and is slightly introverted There are teachers who act similair to the general, then are coocky, yet powerful

* Both has «Special Zones/Islands» for inhuman creatures (vampires/werewolves..etc) * Both has Vampire & Human girl as main characters (male vampire & human girl...) * Lots of action in every episode...( damn, those vampires!!! ) * Really nice OST's ( one of the strongest point of both series ) * Idk, just BBB seems more epic...(StB seems to suffer with too much characters)..

In both shows, the main character is a supernatural being who is said to be very dangerous and should be eliminated. Both have exorcists who fight the demons/supernatural beings. The fight scenes are also good in both.

They both give you the similar feeling . If you like this one i think you should like IS also, other than that their story are different others are pretty much alike. Both MC are super dense . I am actually surprised that i am the only one that recommend IS .

Both are Magic and Fantasy Both have a situation where Magic exist Both Male protagonist are being followed by girl It's has some other I can't explain.. but this is the most similar part. 
report Recommended by LLEENN
Both protagonists got powers randomly and a female sidekick from nowhere. Both protagonists share a harem and are very similar in personality. There are similar characters, but different plots. 
report Recommended by chakracat
Both shows are action focused with supernatural elements. Both feature an underground criminal world connected to the supernatural as the setting. Both have ecchi elements, though significantly more in Strike the Blood than in Taboo Tatoo. 
report Recommended by arilando
They're both clichéd stories with a lazy and seemingly ordinary character who was granted great power for some random reason. As if you couldn't already hate the MC enough, he's surrounded by incredibly pretty girls due to his status. Also check Bible Black. But both shows are enjoyable using comedy, good pacing, amazing art, sound and atmosphere to the fullest. Although cliché the plot is very well developed and carried out. Characters follow the trait and stereotypes and clichés apart, they're likable and enjoyable. AKA: A very talented author with a peanut brain and some good advice from pros makes anything look good. 
report Recommended by ReinhardVonMusel
Similar in terms of setting; both have their main focus on artificial cities that are afloat out in the pacific but still technically under Japanese jurisdiction. Also, the events surrounding those cities are predominantly supernatural. In Strike the Blood's case vampires, and for Engage Kiss demons. From that, the main character's powers are relied upon to keep the city's peace.

Similarities - Both MCs gain powers from their compatibility with women (sucks blood/emotional trust) - Both MCs are targets of assassination by a powerful organization/kingdom - Both MCs have a 'harem' Differences - MC in Spirit Seed Manual is isekaid into a fantasy world VS MC in Strike the Blood isn't isekaid - MC in Spirit Seed Manual has no magic powers VS Strike the Blood MC is a powerful Legendary Vampire - MC in Spirit Seed Manual connects activates his power with his fairy harem by helping with their emotional trauma VS MC in Strike the blood activates his power by sucking blood.  
report Recommended by ST63LTH
Both ‘Strike the Blood’ and ‘The Asterisk War’ feature a high school boy who lives on a scientific artificial/man made island. Both these boys have extraordinary power, with Kojou from Strike the Blood being the fourth primogenitor, the strongest vampire in existence, and with Ayato having such large amounts of prana (iirc). Both have a catch to their powers; Kojou has to suck the blood of women in order to awaken his familiars, and Ayato’s powers were restrained by his sister. Of course, both these boys have a harem of their own, and are too dense to realize the feelings of the women around them.

Both have a similar MC and interesting romantic views. While Strike the Blood has more supernatural elements in it Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry takes a more magical approach. Both have lots of humor and great characters that will keep you on your toes!

Ordinary dude finds out he's actually an heir to a really important and powerful family and must train to get stronger. There is also a girl who is tasked to watch over him and protect him. A lot of action plus ecchi.

Kindaichi and Kojou had a some special releationship with lead heroin Miyuki and Yukina and those two anime had a same theme for shounen ,msytery,romance and school. Kindaichi had two close friends,Ryuta Saki and Murakami Souta and also had a releationship with an idol,Reika Hayami while Kojou also had two close friends, Aiba Asagi and Motoki Yaze.He also had his younger sister,Nagisa and a chilhood friend,Yuuma.Kojou also had a releationship with a few girls such as La Foila,Sayaka and Asagi.I think Akechi Kengo had a same personality with Vatler Dimitrie because they had a teamwork with their main character of the story. 
report Recommended by qKhayrin
Both have main characters who rely on their companion (a younger girl in both cases) to achieve their potential. In both cases the girls are better fighters than the main characters. The girls in both cases are besotted with the main character. The main character in both cases is the typical clueless awkward hero type.

Both are fun action series that aren't too deep that you can just sit back and enjoy but what's more important is the catchphrases that atleast for me greatly elevated my enjoyment of the series. 
report Recommended by Roevhaal
They both have a vampire/human relationship. They both have a remote place for the supernatural beings 
report Recommended by Forever_Anime12
Action, thriller, blood sucking and of course a presence of a vampire is the most common criteria of these anime. Both has lots of similarities. One should try them both. 
report Recommended by imranhasan
Both shows have the two main protagonists, a vampire and a human who can use some form of magic, face off against mysterious and powerful foes. Additionally, both anime are infused with ecchi, comedy, and school life themes. 
report Recommended by shigeru212
The setting takes place inside a futuristic city where magic and science powers coexist. The male leads have a large female harem, probably because of the male leads' habit of always helping damsels in distress, with no regard to their own lives. Both male leads' signature finishing move is to punch their opponents in an exaggerated manner. 
report Recommended by bunny1ov3r
Both of these anime have a slightly echi side to them. Both harems are filled with girls with unique abilities. The male protagonist in both is constantly trying to save and help the girls in the harem. The character design for the main female interest is similar and are both voices by Taneda Risa. The episode and series pacing for both is also very similar. The main female interest in both can be violent with the MC when he does anything with another female.

Both have supernatural elements with a boy/girl team trying defeat evil Both have a lot of action although Strike the Blood has more gore Similar feel overall, and both have light-hearted comedy moments 
report Recommended by bhaktivinoda
Although they don't flaunt their skills, the main character is a potential threat to anyone and everyone near them although they don't have any malicious intent. In fact, both seem to have a slightly naive energy about them and a pure/optimistic goal ahead of them. Female lead provides adamant support when they're not fighting the main character off the battlefield. Great potential for character development, but their catchphrases get old quick. Would recommend both although they aren't high-priority shows. 
report Recommended by Kaguyachinchin
Kojou(strike the blood) and Kakeru (11eyes) are both boys surounded by girls. First, they are just living their normal lives until they become involved in fights and get supernatural powers. They both have to try to save the world.
