Both deal with Yuri leads and have a good amount of risque, sexually suggestive storylines. I enjoyed both for the most part simply because I'm a guy and I love boobs and butts. But I digress, both anime's have a fair amount of comedy and action to keep you glued to your seats..or at least leave you thinking about hentai, lol.
Valkyrie Drive is very similar to Sin Nanatsu no Taizai, First of all reason it's very ecchi and if you like fanservice both of them will do great for you, Second of all reason for you to watch this is because there might be moments when you think this is cool or funny, after all this show is starting to interest me *coughs* *smiles* fanservice is very interesting if I may say so myself *coughs*.
After mentioning this anime to a friend and briefly explaining what it was about, he said "Valkyrie Drive". So I had a look, and what a slap in the face of recognition wasn't this. The series contain well-endowed ladies with lots of ecchi-bordering-hentai scenes. Though polar opposites in main character material, they are both guilty pleasures of mine worthy a view. The fighting scenes (oh yes, there is fighting) are surprisingly good and neither of the stories are at a slow pace like lots of heavy ecchi might be.
Utena and Valkyrie Drive, each in its own idiosyncratic way, employ homoeroticism as means of furthering plot developments and use physical transformations in the pursuit of unearthing thematic implications. Set in enclosed worlds, the characters in these anime seek to break through limitations imposed by their respective societies. However, whereas Utena is usually concerned with stimulating the mind and is steeped in symbolism, Valkyrie Drive tends to concern itself with stimulating other bodily organs.
Did you watch Utena thinking 'This could do with less subtle symbolism, more jiggling breasticles, and maybe some loud moaning'?
Did you watch Valkyrie Drive thinking 'I liked the weaponisation of girls by girls, but it could do better in terms of integration with gender criticism and queer theory'?
Here lies your solution my friends. Whilst Utena is very gratuitous with its allegories and heavy-handed symbolism, Valkyrie Drive is gratuitous and heavy handed in other, more literal ways. Watch Utena to unsheathe the sword of your heart as you follow the journey of self-discovery of Utena and friends; and watch Valkyrie Drive to unsheathe the sword in your pants as you watch girls 'discover' each other.
- Both feature large numbers of not-straight girls.
- Both feature the extraction of weapons either from the body or by transformation of the body into said weapon. read more
Both are ecchis revolving around going to a place to learn how to fight where only a selected few are welcomed. The biggest differences though is that Absolute Duo is a Harem and Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid is a Shoujo Ai
Super duper fun ecchi lesbian adventures. Not a single superfluous male MC to be seen. Lots of glistening boobs and butts in a fantasy setting. What else can one ask for?
Bikini Warriors is high fantasy parody, whereas Valkyrie Drive is sci-fi fantasy that takes itself more seriously than it really should. Who cares about plot though? Boobs. Jiggle jiggle.
these shows are pretty much the same thing, a tag team battle royal... now neither show has a very good story, so we can just skip that whole thing and get down to what matters, which is better? some might think that zero would win because of its animation. but boobs trump animation... thats just a known fact... so if you liked fate/zero, and want to watch a show thats not afraid to go all the way, then try valkyrie drive
•Yuri only, no dudes (1 guy in Kampfer, but he transforms into a girl for most of the series).
•Lot's of action (+ similar genres).
•Tons of fan service (ecchi in Kampfer, full exposed oppai's in Valkyrie Drive).
Hundred is like Valkyrie Drive in a few different ways. The characters are on an island, and are infected with a virus that allows themselves to become/use special weapons. On top of that, both have female characters disguised as males and a decent amount of fanservice, although Hundred isn't nearly as lewd.
In both Valkyrie Drive and Masou Gakuen, the main ladies need to orgasm to unlock their special powers. Not only do both shows contain an overwhelming majority of females, nudity, and fanservice, the soundtrack and ending song are amazing.
Both of these shows are borderline hentai and push the boundaries of what is able to be broadcasted on television. Both feature extreme ecchi scenes that would satisfy any ecchi fan that can't push it a level up and just watch hentai. For anyone who likes ecchi that pushes it's limits, watch both of these shows.
- The same style of art;
- Battles between beautiful women with supernatural abilities; they are more adult in "Witchblade" and younger in "Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid";
- Strong relationship between women - mother and daughter in "Witchblade" and two girls in "Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid".
Difference is in fact that "Witchblade" is more seriuos and has stronger plot, when "Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid" exists more for fanservice goals.
Lots of boobs, while portraying women as strong fighters. Creative ways to get a girl's clothes taken off or showing a character aroused during battles to make them a stronger fighter.
There are also arena battles where the female characters are battling one another for honour and glory, and they are either almost naked or exposed. There is also emphasis on the main character being a virgin and innocent, while the female opponents are often wild with their fighting style.
Instead of being a continuation och explanation of the main series, the Akuma no Riddle special (Dubbed "Episode 13"...) has absolutely NOTHING to do with the original story expect having the same characters. The special, unlike the series, is pure fanservice. Skimpy breasts, bikinis, low-cut panties that show off their butt cracks... Just like Valkyrie Drive, it's about a group of women without clothes running around fighting eachother with different kinds of weapons in a yuri setting. (They both even take place on an island where the main characters are washed ashore in the beginning of the episode, heh.) I'd actually say Valkyrie Drive is the more entertaining from the two though, simply because it doesn't claim to be anything other than it is. While Akuma no Riddle was a pretty dark and serious show about a group of assassins trying to kill the main character, and then we and up with this garbage after the main series has ended... read more
