AxK's MC is very much like assasination's both give off the same feel AxK is a little less "intense" you could say, but they are really similar in atmosphere

The biggest resemblance between these two animes is the fact that they both focus on Survival Games. They both also have a lot of comedic content and otaku reference characters. Sabagebu is far more light-hearted and made just for jokes and sarcasm though, while Aoharu has more of a story line about friendship and trials and could almost be a RomCom--but very light with the romance.

Both MC are girls dressed as boys. Both have action/battles involved. Both MC are strong and outstanding between the other characters. Both are kind-of Reverse Harem.

Both MCs are really good at something ( AxK survival game, YP cycling) without even realizing it. They meet good friends/teammates, which helps bring out the potential in them, which makes them strive to be the best they can be in order to thank their friends in return.

Aoharu x Kikanjuu may have a completely different setting to Knight's & Magic, but that doesn't stop it from sharing a fun and energetic atmosphere, thanks to the similar main characters. Both main characters look fairly adrogynous and are often mistaken for the opposite sex. In Knight's & Magic it isn't an important part of the storyline, but in Aoharu x Kikanjuu it is essential. However, the main similarities they share are aspects of each other's personalities. They aren't exactly the same - due to not being an overly-used archetype - but they both possess a bubbly determination and a sometimes-freakishly-positive outlook on life. Their  read more

While watching Aoharu x Kikanjuu I found that Haru and Matsuoka are extremely similar with there backrounds and personality. There isn't to much romance however you can feel the same raw romance an love vibe you get from Haru loving Ren. If you love strong characters you'll love Hotaru,a girl often mistaken for a boy who is quite alot stronger than any guy in her school not to mention she can pack a punch if you get her mad. While watching this I was reminded of super lovers so try them both out!

How these anime are similar: ~ Action! Aoharu x Kikanjuu is all about gunfights, while Arcana Famiglia was all about diffrent fighting styles. Still awesome though!!! ~ Has 2 guys (Aoharu x Kikanjuu) and more (Arcana Famiglie) guys following a girl around. ~ [spoiler]The main character from Aoharu x Kikanjuu is a girl who dresses like a guy, so it's sweet to watch the relationship grow without them knowing she's a girl.[/spoiler] ~ Both female main characters are string and don't rely on others. They can do things on their own. ~ The guys from the anime both have an obvious attraction (in my opinion) towards the main character. ~ Genre:  read more

Both have characters, who are friendly like Nagisa or Tachibana, but they are both crazy and dangerous, when they really start. And both character (Tachibana and Nagisa) are mistaken by their gender. Naturally in both series its about "Killing"

Nisekoi actually features a character (rather major, but not the main.) who everyone mistakens for a boy due to her appearance. Coincidentally both are voiced by Mikako Komatsu herself. Both are high-trained in combat.

The main females are extremely similar and have similar fighting styles. They're both very tomboyish, "monsters" at their game and loved by everyone.

While Kemono no Souja is more serious and of different genres, both have female protagonists who aren't afraid to show both femininity and masculinity, are strong in their own ways, and are proud of being theirselves in all that that entails. I highly recommend this to people who enjoy well-written females protagonists.

While Moribito is more serious and of different genres, both have female protagonists who are physically strong, aren't afraid to show both femininity and masculinity, hold their own against enemies and male teammates, and are proud of being theirselves in all that that entails. I highly recommend this to people who enjoy strong, and well-written, females protagonists.

In both anime there's confusion about the gender of the main character: Izumi (Love Stage) is confused for a girl, while Hotaru (Aoharu x Kikanjuu) is confused for a boy Furthermore, the design of the main characters is quite similar (they look quite alike) keep in mind that Love Stage is a shounnen-ai and Aoharu not

A group of people are part of the Survival Games club. They enter the Air-soft tournament to showcase their skills. One deals with a group of girls and some supernatural phenomenon. The other only men and bromance.

Both are about a survival game. Although Btooom is way more serious than AxK. Both have pretty good fighting scenes.

1 girl & a lot of competitive guys in the same team Main MC girl is hyperactive/strong/competitive or something like that... OP songs - fangasm level... One is about survival games and another is about stride/freerun/parkour mix?
