They have some similarities like: -A school thta used to be only for girls and then became co-ed. -A group of really strong girls who seems to hate boys. -The girls use violence to correct the boys, and do things to humiliate them.

Both Needless and Armed Girl's Machiavellianism are fun, dumb action anime with a badass MC and lots cute girls in their casts of characters. Don't expect a deep, original story out of either of these, expect action and fights that give you something to get hype about, ridiculous over-the-top situations to give you something to laugh at, and a good amount of waifus and fanservice. If you liked any of those things about one of these shows, you may find yourself enjoying the other as well.

The protagonists are OP and have disturbing pasts. In addition to attracting much of the female cast around her.

Both protagonists get involved with powerful girls, which tries to end up changing their philosophy of freedom. It also helps to change the exotic personality of the heroines.

things that are similar from these two anime: ~mc who is equally hated from the beginning of the story but he can conquer everything at the end of the story ~busou shojo has a romantic comedy just like us nomi zo shiro

Busou Shoujo Machiavellianism and Seireitsukai no Blade Dance could both be described as action-harems. In both of these anime, a teenage boy goes to a school chock full of every gal you could want. He doesn't get along with the girls who lead the school at first and ends up fighting them, but, in the end, he earns their friendship and their affection. Furthermore, the protagonist of each series possesses a mysterious past that includes a mysterious woman he is at odds with.

The main character has to charm various girls in order to stop them from destroying absolutely everything. To me, Busou Shoujo Machiavellianism is inferior to Date A Live in absolutely every single aspects, but if you're into that, then you might like both of those.

Busou Shoujo Machiavellianism is a show about a guy who beats up heavily armed girls who are trying to get him to crossdress. Kenka Banchou Otome: Girl beats boys is a show about a crossdressing girl who beats up boys in a school for thugs. The shows are almost opposite of each other, but expect martial arts and crossdressing in both.

harem + about strong man between girls

Basically the same theme with high schoolers fighting on school ground except Busou Shoujo has a setting where the main character has to face off against female opponents, befriending them as he moves on.

-Main character with an OP power and a half assed attitude -Rokudenashi has magic whereas Machiavellianism has swords -Both are relatively new harems that have some interesting girls and scenarios

Both features a guy who is a typical chauvinist, a pervert and an apex bully, who is up against those high fluting Amazons who can kick ass outta ordinary bully, except that the guy is no ordinary bully, but a good chauvinistic guy who is capable to taming those ass kicking Amazons.

Has a similar start, since we find * A transfer student that is also rebel and strong * A school which is ruled by a group of students acting as correctors (The Great 4 on kill la kill) * The whole school and specially those correctors chasing the transfer student in hope of correcting him on fights * Outstanding fights fast paced fights Sorry for the low quality comparision but its mostly the similarities i found on it and it goes on in most of the story from what i read on manga

Both have a rebel mc with unnormal physical strength, who fights against the 4/5 strongest students (Tohoshinki/Supreme Five Swords) at his school.
