In both of these series, the MC is a brilliant tactician. Often gaining the advantage in battles that were against their odds. They would need to think ahead, predict the movement and actions of enemies to outwit them, leading their own forces to victory.
- Both animes have a fantasy scenario portraying, mainly, a war between two great factions/empires.
- Both MC are clearly great commanders
- The war development is mainly based on the strategy and tactics and is often compared to chess/shogi (side note: both MCs excel on chess)
- Although the main combat is focused on large-scale combat, there are some good duels and small-scale fights
- There is a lot of polictics involved in the war and the MC seems to be related to the nobility
- Both worlds are kinda messed up, with the main empire focusing on war and having great economic, political and social issues.
Both animes have great characters with an actual personality, every character has its own development, both psychologically and on skills and *quasi-spoiler ahead* both MCs seem to be fated to fix the world, doing it not necessarily by just winning wars. read more
Both shows have an MC who's a brilliant tactician and leads his army against overwhelming odds. The MC and his army is pitted against a vastly superior army.
Where they both differ is in the scale of the battles. In Code Geass, there are plenty of skirmishes against the Brittanian Empire; in Alderamin, the Republic of Kioka only influences the battles the MC encounters.
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 series are set in an alternate "world war" scenario, where the main character is forced to command a team of soldiers to fight, despite actually disliking war. The main characters in both are also slightly quirky, sticking out from their comrades and showing great strategy and leadership skills. Valkyria Chronicles has a similar setting to world war 2, with tanks, however Alderamin goes for a slightly 'steampunk' approach with canons, rifles, airships and sword fighting.
The animation style between the two shows also feels slightly similar, and the character designs are often colourful. They both have a similar feel, and if you enjoyed one it's likely you'll enjoy the other. read more
Both take a over look on military battle and strategy. Both have a magic aspect in. They also don't glorify war and show the pain of wars Nejimaki is not as long so story is not as complete but bother very good animes.
Strategic Sloth Main Characters? ✓
tsundere style fighting female lead? ✓
Love Triangle? ✓
War setting - albeit different period ✓
Evil political agendas? ✓
Valkyria is a masterpiece and thankfull Alderamin has many similar traits that may potentially entice viewers to watch.
Both shows are set on alternative realities (could be compared to 19th-20th century or so) with some magical, supernatural beings while they aren't the only/main focus of the show
Even though the main male characters are a bit different when it comes to their nature they are both great tacticians and were both forced to fight and the setup of story is also somewhat similar. There is also at least one mentally and/or physically strong main female character in both series.
The main focus of both shows is military even though it isn't following the reality that strictly. For example there are plenty of women in the military in both series and overall they aren't that "militarish" after all.
While Valkyria Chronicles can be pretty easily be referred to WWII in Europe there isn't as clear focus on Tenkyou no Alderamin which could be somewhat compared to WWI/preWWI-era when it comes to weapons and tactics.
There are two great powers fighting each other and then there is a small third nation/people trying to survive. In the middle of the great war. read more
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.
Fairly detailed, enjoy :)
The worlds are somewhat similar, in short: Alderamin is a fictional 19th century beginnings of rifled guns world, Youjo Senki is WW1 europe with a twist. Both magic included.
-Main character is a talented officer (more so in Alderamin)
-in Alderamin Ikta is above all a gifted young strategist and somewhat clever/cunning like JoJo's Joseph,
-Tanya was a ruthless salaryman and now is a sociopathic, mad, ruthless yet sometimes cute gifted fighter/air commander, has historical hindsight from her original future and is able to guess national objectives in advance
-Both are lazy!
-Ikta takes the shortest and easiest way possible to victory, works hard to end duties as quickly as possible and have a nap. He likes his job.
-Tanya loves order and rules, wants a peaceful existence in the capital but is "too good to let be" and gets thrown into the frontmost fights. She hates having to do that, even though she's excellent.
-Both are also fighters (more so in Youjo Senki)
-Ikta uses a magic powered bolt action rifle to great effect
-Tanya uses a magic powered computer/jewel and is basically a commander of self-flying mages (think Strike Witches)
-Both shows showcase military badassery
-Alderamin concentrates on tactics with great, easy to follow explanations; every problem has to be countered with a creative solution and it's really fun to watch all plans and numbers unfold on the screen
-Youjo Senki bets on the badass fun of a vanguard strike force, quality combat scenes, satisfying strategy debates with generals using Tanya's knowledge of 20th century history and doctrine and also Tanya's unique character
-Alderamin has 2 main characters: Ikta and Yatori
-Youjo Senki has only Tanya
-Characters (they usually don't change much)
-Alderamin touches on more characters, often uses main cast's past as interludes and tries to brief us on why they became who they are
-Youjo Senki develops only Tanya and only in the present, we get attached to other characters and see their different emotions but a military strictness is placed on their behavior, aside from a few they don't change all that much, half the cast is already mature and developed. read more
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.
- MC in both of them are pretty OP, one with his magic powers and the other with his brilliant mind and decision making.
- both are set in a wolrd where the mc somehow relates to someone with a big political influence (royalty)
- the MC in both of them are accompanied by very pretty and also powerful girls that seem to have a good relationship with the mc.
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.
The protagonist of Alderamin, Ikta, is quite obviously modeled after one of the leading characters of LOGH, Yang Wen-Li.
A lazy guy who hates war and never wanted to become a soldier but is an absolute strategic genius that is revered for his talents and does what he has to do, they also both hold subversive political beliefs.
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.
The MC is both Millitary Genius. Almost every Aspect are the same but there is some DIfferences :
-In Madan The MC already an highlord but not Well Known / not very Popular
-Magic is one of strong attribute of Madan No Ou To Vanadis While the Magic In Nejimaki Seirei Senki is not a strong attribute of the Anime almost not exist at all. its like just ordinary Soldier Who always bring a cute little Flashlight.
-Fan Service is strong with this One.
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.
similar MC, pretty chill and lazy but op in terms of strategy etc
Games vs Battles in respective anime won with pretty decent tactics and predictions.
Similar speeches/beliefs (lazyness speech, weakness speech)
If you liked NGNL for the right reasons this is the only other non trash tier anime that's like it.
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 a school setting, where battles are for practice and not fatal (at least not yet). Another difference is that while the (character) art in Alderamin is prettier than Arslan, Arslan aims for a broader scope in terms of larger armies of characters and greater variety in settings. Finally, Arslan is set before gunpowder had reached the middle east and the West, while Alderamin is set a few centuries later in an era of rifles and hot air balloons. read more
It is only in the beginning of Alderamin on the Sky, but I feel both series have lots in common. Primarily war and intelligent strategists. I am not sure if the development of Alderamin on the Sky is going to follow the same direction as Arslan Senki..
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 with the blade, and wants to protect the main character. read more
+Overpowered, Overprotective sister figure
+The hero party joins a military organization
+The protagonist plays a pivotal role in the success of battles and isn't just a pawn
+The protagonist has ties to scientific figures
-"Alderamin on the Sky" lacks the oppressive atmosphere of "Attack on Titan". In fact, the power balance is in reverse with respect to the protagonist's side.
- Both shows are about war, in a pre-modern environment and approach it in a more or less realistic way.
- Both showcase the perspective of the common soldiers and the hardships and loss they endure.
- Both shows also deeply involve battle strategy and emphasize the impact that leadership of armies can have.
- The MC in Nejimaki and the MC in Kingdom are both great generals in the making.
- Both shows have a member of the royal family saved by the MC.
- In both cases, the young and comparatively powerless member of the royal family take a special interest in the MC and predict his rise to greatness as a general.
The main difference is the personality of the Main character. In Nejimaki, the MC doesn't want to be a hero, while in Kingdom, the MC can't think of anything except becoming one. read more
-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.
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.
- 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
-the mc has somehow similar personality and looks
-they are both set on a fantasy wolrd.
- the MC in both seem to atract people ,,, the animes show how they gather around him and how their relationship develops,
- they both have this calm feeling even though are kind of action and adress the issue of death being something normal that happens cuz of the wolrd circumstances
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.
- 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 good at making plans and using people.
- Good reader. Books or humans.
- They easily hated, but when you know why you well want to be a friend of them.
- Calm but high tamperer..
2- Cool or kuudere-I guess- heroin with long hair.
3- Many girls like the main character secretly.
4- Good and trusting Team believe on each other. 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 anime is about war between two nation. in "Nejimaki Seirei Senki", Katjvarna Empire and Kiorka Republic, while in "Toaru Hikuushi e no Tsuioku" Levamme Empire and the Amatsukami Imperium.
and both of the main character is a "HALF" between two nation.
if you like war story than you might like it :)
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 combat. The strengths of both protagonists apply accordingly. 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.
Both of the anime is about war between two nation. in "Nejimaki Seirei Senki", Katjvarna Empire and Kiorka Republic, while in "Toaru Hikuushi e no Koiuta" Isla and Sky clan.
Both of the main character is blessed with his comrades.
