Despite their settings, both being comedies in which the forces of good and evil live side-by-side in an everyday setting, these shows could not be further from each other. Gabriel Dropout is a comedy specialized in mean-spirited humor, where we're supposed to laugh at the characters' misfortune; if this speficic type of humor misses you, you should avoid it (like me). On the other hand, Machikado Mazoku is, while comedic in nature, actually a heartwarming tale about human kindness. I personally would recommend checking out the latter.

Both series talks about Demons in which they deal with poverty, while the devil is a part timer is more about a demon lord working to take over the world, Machikado Mazoku is all about a demon girl working to get her family out of poverty. In both series you will see how they struggle in life and money matters as well as how they deal with their powers and their environment.

If you like anime filled with cute girls, these two anime are must watch. Both are extremely cute fantasy series with great character designs. In Endro the good girls try to beat the demon lord, while in Machikado the demon lord tries to beat the good girls. Major difference is that Machikado is a fast paced comedy, while Endro is more relaxing.

Both MCs are tasked with something way too difficult for them but with support of people around they keep on trying. Shows filled with positivity. They make you support (and maybe pity) those girls.

Machikado Mazoku and Bottle Fairy are two fun slice of life anime to watch if you are looking for some wholesome anime with fantasy main characters interacting with the real world. There's plenty of cartoony humor and funny misunderstandings in both shows, and the art styles and character designs of both are really cute!

Both are about demons and stuff, but they're both actually cute and fluffy shows. Both have a sort of light pastel colour scheme and laid back pacing.

Machikado Mazoku and Ojamajo Doremi are two funny magical girl shows about a red-haired girl who has just received magical powers and are expected by others to do something, but isn't very good at doing said task. However, the main character in both shows is supported by her friends, who try to help her with her troubles. Both shows are just wholesome, and are also directed by people who are no strangers to directing magical girl anime.

Machikado Mazoku and Lucky Star are two slice-of-life comedies with cute female leads, bright art styles, and references to video games. Both shows are centered a lot around two of the female leads, the main character and another girl with pigtails, and one of the two even seems to be similarly bothered with the other. Yuuko and Konata make for very funny main leads in my opinion.

Both are series about a less than intelligent main protagonist who make friends and find themselves defacto leaders of a group of varied characters through being good people and helping others out, often without even realising it. Applies more so to the machizoku manga than the current extent of the anime adap.

Both are series that largely focus on the bonding between female characters who are from different backgrounds/factions, and would seemingly be enemies, but overcoming that barrier to become close friends.

Under the layer of heartwarming school comedy we can see bunch of sad characters trying hard to overcome those feelings. In case of Joshikousei no Mudazukai it applies more to side characters which the main trio meets.

Both series have a humor based on the absurd. In addition, both present a world where extremely abnormal occurrences (such as seeing a girl with horns and tail walking down the street or a tsundere attacking her lover with a BAZUKA) are taken as something of everyday.

Demon girl is on a quest to murderize a certain magical girl / witch. Her attempts fail in the most spectacular and comedic fashion and said magical girl / witch does not take her seriously in that matter and even tries to befriend her. Both are quality and totally underrated slapstick comedies, however Jashin-Chan contains some dark humour and mild amount of gore.

Same level of comedy. Lots of goofy powers or situations which really mirror how I felt when I watched Ika Musume for the first time. It's a cute feel good show with silly jabs. Even though it's now almost ten years older than this anime, it's still worth a watch.

They are non-serious shows that have somewhat serious or mysterious atmosphere/plot/world in the background, though the characters themselves are really optimistic (Machikado Mazoku) or oblivious (Kemono Friends) to that 'seriousness'. This enables them to put a smile on your face watching character interactions, while leaving you something to ponder about at their slow-but-progressing plots and somewhat mysterious worlds.

-Both anime revolves around the daily lives of someone with magical powers, though Machikado Mazoku is more moe and has a little plot on it, they still follow the same slice of plot plot where the main character who has special powers tries her best and lives a normal life. School also doesn't play a much bigger role in both animes but family and friends are.

The tone of the comedy in both is similar. The MC's have similar personalities as do their respective foils.

Having seen Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san twice recently, I wanted to find something to re-watch instead to fill that void. The conditions were slice of life, released 2017-present and of course, that it be good. Of the options presented to me which met those conditions, Machikado Mazoku is the one I feel best pairs with Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san. It has a similar style of humour but is different enough to be viable in conjunction.

Wholesome series about people being nice to each other
