A pushover with a bad haircut starts at a school where people have supernatural powers while he technically has none (instead his powers are borrowed). Marimashita Iruma-kun is more lighthearted and cute.

involves humans interacting with friendly demons

A young man finds himself for odd circumstances going to a demon school, yet each series has a slightly different take. The styles for both series are bright regarding the colors, one more realistic than the other, yet in this same regard both are fun takes on various monsters.

somehow the exact same type of cast/characters, writing and comedy with the exact opposite plot/premise - both shows will make you laugh way more than you expect (comedy gold mines) - iruma and saiki are the exact opposites of each other personality wise but they both live with the goal of wishing to be seen as normal and blend in (even though their roles make it very unlikely) - both main characters end up having like a fanclub's worth of friends without desiring it and it's great

In both series the main character is unlucky and has bad parents that refuse to do any actual work. Also in both series the main character gets sold

The two shows give off a similar vibe as they both are comedy's that involve demons

Can't get enough of magical schools? There are starting to be more and more series that take place in a magical school, yet they're still something I'm personally on the lookout, and yet the different takes both series take are full of laughs and fun, plus fun characters to keep the viewer entertained.

If you enjoyed one, you'll probably enjoy the other. -Similar art -Story line of keeping identities hidden, but this time the roles are reversed -Rom com with demons -Simple but enjoyable plots And they are both all around an easy and enjoyable anime to watch :)

- Both MCs are from another world - Both MCs are young and have op power - Both MCs have very strong friends - Both MCs live in disguise

An unfortunate kid gets thrown into another world (literally or figuratively) where he gains friends and power somehow. These series throw a shounen cloak on what at the bare bones seems like a dark/gritty story and make it fun.

Looking for the next demon king? Check. Using high school to do so? That's rather new in regards to plot, yet there are two relatively new series tackling demon king and high school, each doing it in a different manner. They're both fun with a wide cast of characters.

Both anime share comedy and supernatural, the comedy is very similar. Both anime have a trio of main characters as well as a "dere" girl who is involved with them. They have a similar art style, Mairimashita is a little more vibrant.

Seemingly wimpy boy, Iruma Suzuki who has to keep his human identity secret, enrolled into a prestigious school to learn about demoncraft or in Okumura Rin, the Blue Exorcist's case in spite of his demonic lineage which he must hide from his peers, anti-demoncraft, we see a correlation of events unfolding in the most peculiar ways where misunderstandings, awkward situations and unexpected friendships are a given.

They both have an exciting story and it both takes place In another world. They are full of excitement and adventures and I hope you enjoy them :P

they're not exactly alike in plot, but the overall feel of the series is quite similar. they are both loud sparkly colored and lots of dumb yelling, but can get surprisingly dark for something that looks so child friendly. they both have a massive chaotic neutral energy

In this case the roles are reversed and a demon is sent to the living world this time The demon tries to assume into the human society like how iruma is assuming into the demon school

very similar. tbh i think some plots are brought here from seton academy. except iruma-kun feels more draggy

Both feature horrible parents who abandon their children because of money. Both main characters are forced to move to a foreign environment where they have to adapt to the new normal.

Both are about an average boy whose life is changed after meeting a huge cast of supernatural beings. He befriends some, and they end up in awesome and funny situations and adventures.

Found Family, similar tone and pace. humorous with interesting adventures/problem solving. 
report Recommended by tpe120
Both main characters end up in a school where they literally can't do what the students are supposed to be able to do (e.g. magic). Both characters are very naive and inhumanly good at one particular thing (Mashle - being strong; Iruma - dodging). Although they have a huge handicap in their way, they both somehow manage to fool everyone into thinking they belong.

Both MC want to live a relatively normal and average life, but fate says otherwise. Both desperately trying not to stand out, but their desperate attempt of not standing out makes them stand out.

Person trying to hide their identity in a school that would kill them if they found out. (similarity). In busted darklord, the main character is a demon attending a human school while in iruma kun it's the other way around. (Difference.)

Both are about a young boy learning to stand up for himself more and that being selfish is something that is necessary sometimes, while collecting an entourage of friends made through sheer knidness. Mob and Iruma are definitely up there for goodest boys.

Both shows include the main character being unexpectly put in a world that is unfamiliar to them There are also smaller aspects that are common to both shows, such as A ranking system that determines a character's strength/worth Items that are common in the human world that are rare in the new environment they are in The concept of familiars (though Zero is more centered around this)

-Cute characters -Has some funny parts -both underrated

-The premise is quite similar - both have a human protagonist involved with demons - the ring of Solomon - the human is somehow special to the demons

Based on the feeling this anime has, I was instantly reminded of Majimoji Rurumo. An ordinary (male) main character is suddenly involved with magic. The whole vibe of the anime is very similar to Mairimashita Iruma-kun. Even the way the main character comes to a lot of bittersweet realizations, and how he finds new friends is very similar.

-Both feature protagonists thrust into a world in which they must use their specialized skills from Earth (survival tactics vs book/craft knowledge) to survive -Both feature somewhat younger child characters as the protagonist -Both are a little slower paced but give a lot of detail and attention to their respective fantasy worlds -Both are a little hampered by lower production values, but make up for it in their writing -Both protagonists have blue hair (almost entirely inconsequential but a little funny nontheless)

Both are feel-good slice of life school anime with a supernatural twist. The youkai, demons and so on are handled in a comedic, lighthearted way that is both funny and very comfy to watch.

Iruma-kun is a toned down reverse To Love-Ru or an ecchi lite highschool story so to speak because we see two sides of the same coin. In one hand we have a human boy exposed to new experiences and stimuli in an unfamiliar hellscape trying to fit in at a school attended by all kinds of demons whereas for To Love-Ru its the other way around since Lala a female resident of Deviluke along with her sisters from a distant planet inhabited by devilish aliens prone to causing full of mischief have no other choice but to assimilate into our world through building lasting friendships  read more

Both have school settings with super natural elements (demons/vampires). Both very charming shows with gorgeous art styles.

An ordinary boy ends up in the demon world, and ends up as Demon King. And oh becomes good friends with a fire demon who he defeats in a duel. It's also very comedic. 
report Recommended by aella_antiope
Both shows to do with school and contain a variety of characters belonging to a specific character trope making the characters interesting and colourful. The main student in both are the tsukkomi (straight man) characters of the anime so both shows have quite fast paced tsukkomi action. The premise of Mairimashita! Iruma-kun is different than 100% Pascal-sensei in that one consists of a human student living among demons and the other one an alien teacher living among humans. Iruma-kun is more story driven and Pascal-sensei is more gag-based with episodes split into parts (but still has a bit of a plot behind the scenes) but the main  read more

Both involve a school featuring demon like individuals. Though one school is in the human world and the other in the demon world. Also one is obviously more comedic than the other. 
report Recommended by ALittleBitofJean
A bunch of sympathetic (yet evil ?) demons worship a human character who has no idea what's going on, but somehow still leads them and being treated as their master/their leader. If Overlord also focuses on battles and politics, the numerous interactions between the demons are mostly funny, just like in Mairimashita Iruma-kun After all, they're both some kind of slice of life, but with demons.

- Young, lighthearted, and kind main characters with destinies of epic proportions - Loveable supporting casts/friend groups that grow together - Similar bright and colorful art styles 
report Recommended by OmaLee
Both works have protagonists who are weak in character and appearance, but who are gaining the sympathy of those around them based on their noble actions. Iruma-kun is more humor oriented, and Rokudou is more action/romance oriented. 
report Recommended by KumoKumo-88
Both are about schools featuring super powered individuals. One being superheroes and the other being demons. One is more serious than the other. Also the protagonists of both shows look very similar.
