This series is about military strategy with a strategic lead and a warrior best friend. Alderamin was closer to Code Geass R1 than Geass R2 was

Both series has a strong female lead and capable male lead that although the male lead lack in strength, they make up their lack of strength with intellect and charisma. The two does share a lot of similarities. If you like one, you are definitely bound to like the other.

Both have OP themes by the Akeboshi Rockets and go for a similar, sleek visual style. If you're a fan of fantasy settings with a focus on military engagements, tactics and an ensemble cast of both male and female roles, both of these shows give you plenty.

The protagonist is really intelligent like Ikta and their personnality is also really close on a lot of points. And Yatorishino can be compared with Iris a woman really powerful with special relation with the protagonist. She used a sword. The scene take place in medival period during war time.

Ikta Solork, the protagonist of Alderamin is VERY similar in personality and behavior to Yang Wen-Li of Legend of Galactic Heroes. Both are lazy geniuses who never wanted to be part of military and who also think outside the box, lack any sort of social tact, indulge in vices and present a political viewpoint that has become controversial in their nations. Both Shows are war-dramas with future-narrator chronicling lives of people destined to play a major role in their nations history.

Similar fantasy setting anime with even similar plot development. Even the characters are similar and also how they think from battle strategy to there morals. Both anime's are solid and progress through the story.

Both of the anime's display great tactics to make their opponent find themselves dancing in the palm of the MC's hands.Both of the series also have an humorous side to make the story seems lighter in a way i think.I enjoyed watching the both of it so i hope you too will.

Both are stylistically, thematically, and topically very similar. Both anime use nearly identical art designs and palettes. For example, both use the same, historical old-fashioned, font. Artwork is very similar, and scenes are set in similar backdrops. Both shows are heavily centered around traditional military strategy (for war), and both feature a genius strategist who is a master of war. Both geniuses show more than they tell, consistently proving (through actual battles) their intelligence, creativity, and forethought. Obviously, the main difference between war in these shows is context. While Arslan features a young prince leading a real revolution against warring nations, Alderamin is set in  read more

Both shows are set in a steampunk world, where the main weapons being used are swords, rifles and canons in both. Both anime feature a fair amount of blood and gore within the battle scenes, and the colour toning and mood feels similar (the use of oranges and sunset colours). Both shows like to go into detail about the strategies used in some of the battles and spends a lot of time on them. Both also feature a short 'training arc' and then goes straight into the action on the front lines. Both shows also have a 'sister-type' figure who is very strong and skilled  read more

Both of them share the main theme and some characters are alike. I'm not yet sure which one is better.

-Very similar protagonists, at least personality-wise -Animated by the same studio with the same type of action -Both take place in similar time periods -Both have a bigger female cast than male cast -Both deal with hierarchies (Kings, Queens, Princes, etc.)

Despite what people think, Kirito, Asuna, and the others did rely on team work like the main crew of characters in Alderamin. Both main characters seem to be good at assessing their situation and acting accordingly. The majority of the time, their plans come through. 
report Recommended by AobaSuzukaze
Main characters are battle geniuses, both of them want to avoid war but will fight when needed and come with the best solution for that time, the difference is that one wanted to be in the position of power to prevent it and the other one just wanted to have a good life and get away from all of this. Anime focused on war, strategies, culture clashes and their consequences, they both try to show the bad side of war and that sometimes it's inevitable. 
report Recommended by Planas
- Both have magic & military; but each heavily focuses on either one (Alderamin more on military, while Akashic Records more on magic). - Both MC is a lazy dude with superb talent & does have repulsive affinity to their speciality despite being very genius at it due to the fact that both magic & military involve bloodshed & violent to which both MC would rather avoid. - Setting does involve school: Alderamin on Military Training Institute while Akashic Records on Magic Training Institute, pretty much school in lazy term. PS: Female MC on both anime may differ, though they are still likeable in many ways regardless  read more

1-The main character Ikuta san and Hachiman san - both play the bad guy role while resolving problems. - Thinking the same way. - Look at people and every thing around very well before moving. But at the same time they look very reckless. - Lazy. - they look negative but they are positive actually. And they do not know that. - like people and want to save them when no one think they will. - If you know them well you will like them and want to help them. - popular and loved, I do not really know if they know that but I guess they figure it out later. - They are  read more

Both are adventures in a kind of historical setting with some fantasy elements. In both anime a group of people has to fight in strategic war-battles. Both have great male and strong female characters, with fun to watch relationships.

Both of the main character is orphan and is are blessed with his comrades.

Similar situation where MC is genius at tactics but doesn't necessarily want accolades that are awarded. They both deal with MC who is not physically suited to battle but intellectually superior to all opponents. Also cares greatly for human life. Heavy object has more of the humorous and ecchi moments we all love.

They both propose the same plot. Two lazy individuals who somehow get mixed up with military duties and becoming the "leader" of their squad. More than enough action in the both of them and the style of fighting typically endures warfare and tactics only the "leaders" can think of. Easily two of my favorite animes to date.

Both male protagonists are very similar -Both are very distinct, different, and unconventional from any other character around them. -Both are quite weak physically, but rely on intelligence, deception and trickery to defeat their opponents. Both are extremely smart, and are among the strongest fighters due to their smarts. -Both main male characters pride themselves on being different, and use methods and techniques that others around them would consider childish, underhanded, and/or disrespectful. Difference is Rokka no Yuusha is set in a story of individuals who engage in 1-on-1 combat, while Alderamin is set in a traditional military setting featuring larger battles as well as traditional hand to hand  read more

The main characters of both series use their brilliant minds and tactics to outwit opponents and winning battles against the odds. They will come up with tactics and predict the next move of opponents, turning the tides of the battle.
