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.
This is literally the same show but the power systems are diffrent, BNHA is more of a trad. shonen action anime, while Iruma-kun is a slice of life comedy anime often involving villains and action set pieces. Both are fairly decent shows that start-up a very strong foundation for the story ahead.
Both shows focus on a supernatural kind of school, one where they are trying to be great heroes and the other where they are trying to be great demons. Has a great mix of comedy and serious moments and the art style is rather similar, main characters are very alike.
Are you having trouble finding animes with school setting?Similar protagonists?Then you have come to the right recommendation.Welcome to demon school!Iruma-kun and My hero academia have all these elements that I have listed above.Both protagonists are very similar.Izuku Midoriya is similar to Iruma-kun.Both characters help others without thinking twice.Both are born without supernatural powers.Both have similar ranking system although Iruma-kun is too detailed about the ranking system.
these two animes are honestly very similar to each other -w-
• both animes have protagonists that begin weak but eventually strengthen their power
• both animes include survival of the fittest, or who will become the strongest of them all
• both midoriya and iruma honestly look and act like the same, almost as if they're the same person heheh
• both animes include someone, like a guardian, gives the protag their power and helps the protag strengthen that power
( i would continue, but i might end up spoiling both animes 😅 )
Our main two protagonists Iruma and Deku are weak, generous and lighthearted boys (that even look quite the same) that enter into a "special" kind of school which they will meet their friends which will be a group of 1 boy and 1 girl, and their other classmates which almost matters not storywise, both series handle a similar kind of clumsy, chibi humor
Similar MC's on looks and personalities.
School Based shonen.
MC is mentored by one of if not the strongest character in the series.
The personalities of the MC's classmates and homeroom teacher are very alike.
MC learns to control his new power given by the mentor.
if you enjoy the chill and fun parts of mha, then Demon School provides plenty of that while also giving taste of action that you would regularly see in mha
If you loved MHA there is slight hope you would also love Iruma kun. The plot is similar the main character was hopeless and then he found someone and started becoming superior and then he made some friends and just started chilling with them and you could find me stupid cause I think the main character looks similar. Just give it a try
-Teen boy struggles to adapt to new lifestyle
-Themes of becoming the number 1
-High school series
-Main trio with anxious main, bubbly girl and diligent, high-achieving boy
Both deal with a human fitting in with demons
Both are comedy based
Both are episodic anime, with the characters having new challenges that they face and overcome in each episode
I looked through a lot of anime to find which one was closest to what I liked about Mairmashita! Iruma-kun? and Maoujou de Oyasumi was almost a perfect match. I heavily recommend it.
Sleepy princess in the demon castle has a similar concept to Welcome to demon school Iruma-kun, where both main characters are transported to the demon realm. So if you enjoyed the concept of Welcome to Iruma-kun you might enjoy Sleepy princess in the demon castle, it also has pretty good comedy.
I found the humor to be similar and the character of the demons (more grounded and nicer than than they would like you to believe). Both anime to watch to make you feel good without a complicated plot.
Both are lighthearted comedy’s which take part in a world where demons exist. However both of the shows focus on the cute and wholesome part instad of a brutal story. The main characters and both of the cast’s are very wholesome. These anime are good when you want to relax and just be happy. They’ll both put a smile on your face.
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.
*Human teenage boy ends up attending a school meant for demons/monsters
*Light-hearted comedy with some serious moments & songs sung by the VAs
The Rosario + Vampire anime focuses more on fanservice and romance where as Iruma-kun focuses more on story progression.
Living undercover as a human in a school of monsters is hard!
Both protagonists know this, and that makes it more fun for us. Both anime share this idea but execute in slightly different ways.
Rosario to Vampire is a slightly more raunchy take on the idea, featuring a harem of girls that flock to the main character making his undercover identity ever that much harder to hide.
Iruma-kun on the other hand is a more slice of life and friendly version of the idea, gifting Iruma a starter hand by having is caretaker be that of one of the strongest demons in the demon realm. Iruma's power helps him blend in, helping his task of blending into his fearsome environment.
Either way, both shows are great and super fun to watch, and most importantly will hopefully fill that hole left after the absence of either show is met.  read more
- In both shows the MC is a human who ends up at an all demon/monster school in a different world cut off from the human world where humans are supposed to be killed on sight.
- Both are lighthearted and have a lot of comedy, a break from more serious shows.
- Both the MC ends up making friends with the demons/monsters whether they're the same species or not.
- However in both shows the MC soon learns it isn't easy for them to fit so easily into a non-human environment with their lives on the line.
If you've seen Rosario+Vampire you'll probably end up enjoying this show, it has a very similar feel to this one. The other way round works too. read more
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
huge similarities in regards to pacing and plot
classroom of lovable characters and their goofy antics
protagonist is different from the rest - how will he keep his identity a secret?
random moments of Plot, majority silly happy fluff
I couldn't help but think about Saiki K while watching this anime because it's very rare for an anime to make me laugh out loud like these two shows have.
If you watched Saiki K, Mairimashita Iruma Kun is a must!
Both Iruma-Kun And Hayate no Gotoku! Start very similarly with both the main characters, Iruma and Hayate, Taken away because of their parents. Both main characters have tendencies to put others before themselves. So in my opinion if you like Mairimashita! Iruma-kun you should like Hayate as well
Both MCs have had rough lives due to their careless parents, and were then taken in for a new, better life. The rest of the characters are I'd say quite different, and especially the setting they're in. The MC part is nearly identical tho
Hayate no Gotoku! and Mairimashita! Iruma–kun are very similar in several ways, like:
•Both are about a boy who‘s parents sell him.
•Both Iruma and Hayate‘s lifes change by meeting someone rich and powerful.
•They are strong because of the skills they learned by living on their own as childs.
•They can both fit in the Harem genre.
•This is not so related but, the main characters are blue.
Both are follow the wacky life of human dealing with demons. With characters that are extremely intimidating and or violent but actually nice or silly. There is even a training mantage included. These two are match made in Heaven or should I say Hell.
Eventhough the main characters of these two are pretty 180 to each other, the setting, the goofiness of the cast, demons, the middling genre which tricks you into action shounen but is more of slapstick comedy, I would bravely say the creators of Iruma-kun had Beelzebub in mind when making it.
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.
Similar bright coloured art and fantasy background where main characters go to school (though one is devil theme and one is witch themes).
There are also similar klutzy but overly cheerful characters like Clara in Iruma-kun and Atsuko in Little Witch Academia (though clara's character visuals remind me of suzy more).
Both are shows that are actually super enjoyable for audiences of all ages! They capture that child-innocence without becoming childishly silly.
I smiled and laughed loads, if you enjoy one you'll definitely enjoy the other!
If you enjoy fun and energetic series about a somewhat clumsy main character and their experience of making unique and colorful friends at a new school, Demon School Iruma kun is an especially fun series that I highly recommend! For anyone that enjoyed the playful energy of Little Witch Academia, Iruma Kun is sure to deliver a similar feel, except instead of cute witch girls navigating school life, it's cute demons!
If you enjoyed one, you'll probably enjoy the other.
-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 :)
anime with same themes: school, demons, secret identity
- Iruma, human who is in school full of demons/devils and tries to graduate
- Yukou, a vampire who is in school full of humans and tries to graduate
Similar art and colour palette.
Both stories are somewhat similar while in JitsuWa the MC has to protect the identities of others in IrumaKun he is the one that has to protect himself.
Both supernatural school settings.
Both lightheart comedies. The biggest difference amongs them is that Iruma matures as a person but as a warrior too since Iruma-Kun is even more shounenish than JitsuWa.
Iruma-Kun is the closest thing we'll ever get to a decent adaptation of JitsuWa.
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 shows are set in high-schools to train demons to become better, stronger demons.
Demon King Academy is a lot like what "Welcome to Demon School, Iruma-Kun!" would be if it were
not a comedy. If Iruma really wanted to become a dangerous Demon King.
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.
The main characters both have to hide their true race identity. In Ao no exorcist, Rin has to hide the fact that he is half-demon (son of satan) while being part of an exorcist community, while in Mairimashita! Iruma-kun, Iruma has to hide the fact that he is human in a world of demon.
Nonetheless, both has this school/demon/action/comedy vibe and are very pleasant to watch to relax and distract yourself! Definitely recommend both!!
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
Both are crazy comedies full of excentric characters with bright colored hair that has some kind of dark undertone.
Some characters are really similar, like Clara (Iruma-kun) and Nico (Nanbaka), and Amelie/Ameri (Iruma-kun) and Momo (Nanbaka)
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.
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)
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)
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 while also causing endless trouble to the dismay of earthlings due to cultural misalignments in socially accepted norms.  read more
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 target audience for both anime are children.
If you're looking for something fun and humorous with a lot of tsukkomi action, I highly suggest one and the other. read more
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.
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.
