Monster Musume is the much more... lewd take on the concept- people or demi-humans trying to find a place in our world (or japan at least). They both showcase a little of what it's like for these girls, living in a world that isn't quite made for them.
Demi-chan wa Kataritai, or Interviews with Monster Girls, is basically an innocent version of Monster Musume; and Monster Musume is a more lewd verion of Interviews with Monster Girls.
Both series' concepts focus on how demi-humans, or monster girls, live in a world that they don't quite fit into. Both series show how the different demi-humans go about their daily lives and overcome the struggle of being different.
The biggest difference between the series is that one is ecchi (Monster Musume) and the other is just a fun slice of life (Demi-chan wa Kataritai), but if you like the idea of monster girls and seeing how they live, then these anime are quite similar in that way. read more
Monster girls. I know that this recommendation is wrong on so many levels, however, if you like monster girls whether they are in an harem or they are totally innocent primary school girls, then you might like these.
Both anime's contain female characters who are Demi-humans and the main character has to put up with their activities however both MC's are completely different and Monster Musume focuses more on fanservice while Demi-chan is more knowledgeable and concentrates on the school aspect.
Tetsuo and Kobayashi lead ordinary lives until their chance encounter with supernatural beings thrust them into exciting situations filled with many laughter, adorable moments, and heartwarming scenes. While Demi-chan focuses on Tetsuo and his desire to learn more about the monster girls, Dragon Maid chronicles the life of the dragons as they attempt to understand Kobayashi and humanity itself. Although Demi-chan and Dragon Maid are lighthearted series, their powerful message about society leave something to think about.
- They both have monster girls trying to fit into society and live among humans- although in Dragon Maid, the girls are dragons rather than complete monsters
- Both series are absolutely adorable and lighthearted
- Both touch on the subject of humans discriminating against those different than them (the different ones being the monster/dragon girls)
- Scarce fanservice, but it's still there
- So. Freaking. Adorable.
They have a lot of similarities and have a similar feel, so if you liked Demi-chan, you're sure to like Dragon Maid as well- and vice versa.
The story lines are related, normal people living with limited amount of "different" people, dragon maid encompasses dragons, but Demi-chan is dullahans, vampires, but more plot based then violent
I love(d) both animes
All the myth-busting that's being done is really similar. Species that look like monsters to us arent really monsters and are the same living beings with the same worries and problems as us.
Just by reading synopsis for both animes you will find them really similar. Both Slice of lifes and slow-paced.
Both are very cute SoL series that feature around Demis (or creatures that resemble humans with mythological features; ie Macchi being a dullahan, and Himeno being a centaur) that react and exist in a normal school as if they belong there. However, unlike Demi-chan, Centaur's humans no longer exist in the world, and the entire school-base is completely demi, while Hikari, Macchi and Yuuki are considered as minorities and outsiders to a majority ruled school of humans. However, while I enjoyed Demi much more, I believe that these two series are very similar, and if you enjoyed one, I'm sure you'll enjoy the other.
Bizarre creatures and demi humans were gather into one.. as they collide
The amount of refreshing a slice of life theme between each other is truly remarkable.. idea...
In order to live one must hide their secrets unlike in this one... People mostly having a normal living..
I did not expect both of these shows to be so funny, peaceful and smart, considering initial silly setups. These shows has only one or two slip-ups, but they hold up very, very well.
I like how Demi-chan walks on the edge of teacher-student relationship without falling. Hopes up for season 2.
Meanwhile, Barakamon is very similar to Demi-chan, but without magic. Somehow brings internal peace about things that are going on in the show.
Both have a very calming and realistic setting and every end of the episode gives a fell good vibe.
Both anime have a very amazing MC (One is prodigy and one is a genius and a lady killer but both have flaws)
Both amazing set of side characters(mainly children)
Both have amazing OSTs and good art style
Barakamon deals with the MCs problem while in Demi-chan wa katarai the MC deals with others problems.
-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
Both shows are about "supernatural" beings trying to live in human society and the troubles they encounter, which seem to be a metaphor for racism, ableism and other isms.
They are similar in tone - heartwarming with some romance and comedy.
Both animes have a male protagonist who is older than the typical young/boy male protagonist.
Both male protagonists have the same japanese voice actor.
Both animes have a romance/harem vibe even though it is not one of the listed genres.
Very unique and likeable girls characters.
Both have good amounts of comedy.
They both pseudo-harem anime with three little girls and a mature girl around MC
They both have a very responsible and considerate MC helping out the girls
They both focus on the predicament of the characters in everyday life, but in a very heartwarming manner
Pretty much the same older man to loli relationship, except one was more of slice of life, while the other is more on sci-fi considering that the loli there is a science lab experiment who got away, while in the other one, the lolis there where more like interview subjects.
Both animes have this low tone comedy and focus on struggles to deal with day to day problems of living in modern society.
ReLIFE is a bit more serious in places, but over all both of them carry positive tones and share heartwarming moments.
- schools based although Demi-chan has demi-humans and is not magic based its set in an ordinary school that has started accepting demi-humans
- cute girl cast, that care for the male main protagonist and each has their own issues
- fantasy Based with mixed with comedy althought Demi-chan is more comidy set in a slightly fantasy world
Both have a very similar vibe, supernatural elements and are focused on a group of young girls and the struggles they are facing in a nostalgic yet sometimes melancholy manner. Both have an underlying theme of friendship and bravery with a mixture of both happy and sad moments. Could say they are both coming of age stories and both have a uniquely charming take on the supernatural genre.
Half humans trying to live normally that are brought together by one person who cares for their well-being. The main theme in Demi-chan wa Kataritai is friendship while the main theme in Shiyan Pin Jiating is family. Both are cute and heart-warming shows.
They don't really have anything similar in theme, plot or characters
but they both have this comfy feel with occasional laughs
If you liked Hotaru you will like Hikari and vice versa
while Dagashi kashi is more about the jokes and wacky situations the characters find themselves in Demi is more about the relationships and how they grow during the wacky situations
Yes i know k-on has no supernatural.
Both shows have a group of cute girls doing mundane things, yet at the same time they both deal with personal hardships and undergo character development. They both have a sensei mentor that helps them. They're both irresistibly cute.
Both shows are about personal growth. They're not particularly plot heavy, yet have a continuous narrative that shows how much the characters have changed.
Hanging out at a school. Nothing really supernatural in GJ, but lots of strangeness. Demi-chan has lots of both.
Both focus on a male character and a cast of female characters, in GJ the boy is a freshmen, in Demi he's a teacher.
Romance isn't really the focus of either show, but there are hints of plot lines that don't get developed so much as revisited every so often.
There's more self discovery in Demi, more slice of life in GJ. I liked both for their extremely relaxing atmosphere and the occasional hysterically funny scenes.
