It gives you the same feeling watching it, the soundtracks, the characters, the artwork.. they are so identical while having completely different story. But IMO Gabriel is way better than Himouto because Himouto doesn't have a plot, you will never feel as engaged as watching Gabriel, you watch it just for fun.
Both Gabriel DropOut and Himouto involve girls that have an outside, perfect(?) persona, but in reality they act very differently at home. Also, the drawing style is similar, but not the same (the same studio produced them).
These two anime follow the hilarious events that ensue.
Otaku-like anime with the same elements as gaming and high school setting.
The supporting cast of both anime doesn't have a major role, but still supports the shows quite a lot with their own quirks and humor.
Umaru is an "angel" in her normal form and lazy in her chibi form, while Gabriel is an angel... that is just generally lazy and quite similar to Umaru.
They're fun and pretty light-hearted, if you like otaku comedy you'll most likely enjoy these shows.
Identical! But Gabriel Dropout have twice the troll IMO lmao. In term of artwork, it is identical as well, character design, environment all aspects reminds me of Umaru. And so to say, if you like the troll, comedy of Himouto Umaru chan...you will be very happy to watch Gabriel Dropout as well. Btw, reminds me that the main character is a same NEET Blondie girl.
Angels and devils forced into a slice of life situation fighting among each other with a hint of role reversal, although both sides end up just being friends that secretly hate each other. Both have a lot of comedy but Maou sama has a bit more story and character focus (doesn't always work but it's good) while Gabriel was made for laughs and a few of common trope characters everyone loves.
Angels and demons coming to earth, only to be influenced by Otaku culture in some way. Also, the roles get reversed where the devil/ demons become the good/ innocent ones, and the angels are the one perceived to be the bad guy/ slacker.
- angels and demons get along for some reason
- angels and demons try to blend in with society
- both main characters reveal an unexpected side of their character after going to the human world
- both main characters' best friend tries to bring them back to their original self
- restrictions on their magical powers
- Group of 4 girls and their everyday life (Gabriel - School/New Game - Work)
- Both have the same amount of comedy on every episode
- Similar artstyle and random events related to the anime location (School/Work)
- Group of characters who arrives from another world and tries to addapt to life here.
- Both have the same amount of Comedy/Slice of life and a good equilibrium in both.
- Similar random situations on their everyday life
- Both involves fantasy and real world character.
I feel like they are similar somehow. They're both hilarious and have demons and angels. Angels in Azazel, in my opinion, don't act very angel-like just like my thoughts of Gabriel and the angels. They all seem like opposites and I think if you enjoyed Gabriel DropOut, you will also enjoy Azazel-san!
Same feel where the characeters are chuuni. However in Dropout the characters are actually angels and demons while in Chuunibyou they just act chuuni. Also both share the same comedic appeal with overly dramatic characters.
Same daily basis.. With a lazy girl as an otaku..
one was very sociable and other one just wants to get some attention
They prefer not to get caught one of her secrets or doing ridiculous stunt everyday
An Anime with Fallen Angel' as protagonists where we can find that they didn't act like truly Angels. The Principal character refuse keep living in the heaven and plans stay in the Earth doing some human "inmoral stuff" for som people.
Both series circle around the daily lives of a group of girls whom have a cordial relationship with one another. The style of presentation of both are very similar to a yonkoma or 4-panel comic, though Gabriel DropOut does have more continuity.
Apart from this, both anime sport the same laid-back aesthetic while both groups of friends tackle everyday living.
-Both of anime are showing girls/lolis as main characters and doing cute things
-Both of characters in anime are mostly known as non-human, in Gabriel there are devils and angels, and in Demi-chan is usually half monsters
-Both of anime have setting in school life
-Both of anime have light story and plots, so it's easy to enjoy them especially for people who looking for relaxing anime
