Both anime starts off on the same note-male lead walks in on female lead changing, ending up in a dual, which proved the male lead's strength causing two to meet and start a friendship. Both anime also includes magical powers and competitions to ranking systems in schools.
report Recommended by Aleron
Both shows are set in an academy for fighters with special powers. They both start off with the MC, who aspires to be the champion of the big fighting tournament, encountering the lead female as an accidental pervert. Both lead females are hot-headed fire users who are princesses of a kingdom. The big difference is that Asterisk War is more action-oriented, while Chivalry is more comedy-oriented.

Just gonna go ahead and post this from another post I made 1. Both MC's are uber elite swordsmen 2. Both MC's lack the ability to use uber awesome magic and must rely on their combat sense and sword skills 3. Both MC's have an ultimate mode where they unleash super quick and awesome power but only for a short time, and with a cooldown. 4. Both MC's love interest is a red-haired foreign princess from a small country. 5. Both princesses are fire users with a hot temper trying to do the best for their country. 6. Both princesses develop a respect for the MC. 7. Both MC's respect the princess. 8.   read more

I pretty much had de ja vu with this anime and Rakudai. The starting plot was the same with similar main characters. Both shows are being showed on the same season so I do not know which one will be viewed more. Gakusen seems like the more serious version while Rakudai keeps it more on the romance light hearted stuff.

- The main male and female protagonist engages in a fight and becomes close - Both heroes are kind-hearted and likes to help train other girls - Both are somewhat harem; in Cavalry, there is a little sister to interfere, while in Asterisk there is a childhood friend

These two anime are basically a clone of one another. They're both so similar that I sometimes get their stories mixed up. Both anime are set in a futuristic magic school where we have a main protagonist who's underestimated in the beginning but is actually really strong. They had a chance encounter with the pink-haired fire-wielding tsundere-ish main heroine and somehow evoke their anger resulting into a duel where the main protagonist eventually win. Both anime also has a tournament of some sort in school where our main characters will participate. The main difference between the two, of course, is the main plot and also   read more

Both Male MC are "unique" meaning they are OP Both Female MC uses fire Both are set in schools Both are mostly swordplay Both have tournaments as their main storyline Basically they are the same. Only difference is that the art in Asterisk is better than Cavalry. While Cavalry has a more ecchi feel than Asterisk and it has better action scene too.

It was almost like they were the same anime and then they added one or two different criteria to one, and so two were made. The two main female leads, who both happen to be princesses and control fire-based magic, and have red/pink hair, both tsundere. And the main male lead who happen to be the underdog school member who just so happens to become the #1 strongest in their school by beating the former #1 (yet they were that strong from the start of when they were shown). But honestly, they are both pretty good, comedy is great, and anime can't be what it   read more

In both of Gakusen Toshi Asterisk and Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry, there is a female princess whom uses "fire magic". The main character (male) is being looked down on by everyone, until everyone changes their opinion of him being weak. Both series uses the same settings, they're attending an academy where they're trying to enter the phoenix festival/seven star battle festival. The setting which makes them apart, is that in Gakusen Toshi Asterisk they're going in pairs to fight, while in Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry it's 1 vs 1.

From what has come out thus far these two anime are extremely similar. They include a protagonist who seem weak but when they have their skills tested, they turn out to be very strong. The female leads in both anime are from a noble family and use fire in their attacks. Both anime incorporate a contest/tournament to determine the strongest warrior.

Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry is practically a carbon copy of Gakusen Toshi Asterisk (although there is more fan service in Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry.) If you enjoyed one, you'll enjoy the other, so I highly recommend watching Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry (if you enjoyed this.)
report Recommended by lonofwar
Both aired at same day, and I'm not going to list down what is similiar because judging by the first episode of both, it wouldn't be an exaggeration to say these two anime are almost identical to each other by any means that you might even have hard time telling them apart.

School setting. The "MC sees the underwear of a girl" moment. Same beginning of the first episode, SAME. People have magic and there's a tournament in both anime. Both give a similar atmosphere.

To pair up with the main female protagonist and then fight other students in other to make it to the finals and win a battle competition. The anime Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry and Gakusen Toshi Asterisk are very similar in plot, genres/themes. Both anime have themes of progressive relationships and has a very obvious Harem cast.

Ecchi harem animes where the main character is overpower, both are spent in a school where there are competitions among students, are animes with many special effects and powers.
report Recommended by GOLenji
Basically the same anime. Both have the MC that are deemed sub-par (more so in Rakudai). Both have the tsundere pink-haired princess main female character. Both have school participating in magical sword fights. To be honest, after watching just the first 3 episodes of each, the two seemed extremely alike. Small difference in romance: Rakudai seems more of a romance between just the 2 mains. Gakusen seems harem-ish.
report Recommended by Avoklan
Well they start off with almost the exact same opening scene. Both take place at a battle training type school. They both have a girl that is really strong with fire powers (even similar hair colors) and a guy that is really overpowered. In both they have a battle where the loser has to do anything the winner tells them to do. At one point I forgot which one I was watching. So if you really liked this show, it's so similar it's kinda like a second season.
report Recommended by Lucksual
Both shows feature a princess with supernatural/magical (more like sword) abilities with the male protagonist who is a super strong swordsman. Both stories occur in a school and both are supposedly supposed to face off in a tournament.
report Recommended by chimilk
Same setting - shonen high school with magic combat. However, Asterisk has a more nuanced cast of characters, and doesn't go full harem by the second episode. Asterisk's action scenes are somehow even better than Calvalry's. Finally, Asterisk's OP (and the rest of it's sundtrack and BGM) kicks all of the ass. Seriously, if you're watching Rakudai, I guarantee you'll enjoy Asterisk.

With similar story lines, this Anime both have to deal with a princess and a mystery warrior who beats the princess and have to follow on the adventures they have. With 12 episodes each these 2015 fall Animes has to deal with romance, comedy, action, harem, and ecchi. Watching these Animes are very similar. Highly recommend if you like an action pack comedy that deals with a romantic situations between the man protagonists.

The beginning of the story is EXACTLY the same, guy protagonist walks in girl protagonist while she is stripping, gets mad, duels guy mc, girl mc loses, form a bond, etc... Not to mention, the girl mc also looks like the heroine in Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry. Both are very similar, but Gakusen Toshi Asterisk has a more developed story. Each of these series both have their strong and weak points, but you'll find the other likable if you liked either of them.

Extremely similar first episodes with the MC looking like a perv accidently. The female leads look similar. OP MC. Both leads end up as partners in a way. Asterisk is more action oriented where as Cavalry is more comedy/ecchi

Just To add more to what people are saying for similarities.

Both involve a school setting where students beat the crap out of each other for various reasons, with magic and weapons included. Practically the same premise, just different execution.

This is going to be my first Recommendation. Lets see how this goes! Similarities: Female Protagonist is Flame Wielders and Royalty. They both a Tournament where they have to make it to the top. Both Romance, Action with Swords. Starts with the Male Protagonist seeing the Female Protagonist Changing Both Male Protagonists are powerful with their Swords. Dissimilarities: Male Protagonist in one starts from the bottom, whilst the other starts near the top. One Male Protagonist relies mostly on his own skill while the other has a powerful Sword plus his own power.

Basically same anime. Similar scenes. Similar storylines. Similar main characters. Similar female protagonist. In my opinion Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry has a better story, at least the backstory is more interesting. If you've watched one, watch the other (at least so you can see how they're basically the same)

Both Rakudai Kishi no Cavary and Gakusen Toshi Asterisk are anime talking about magic, and how they are fighting in a tournament. Both have a bit of harem, even though we can see that the main character has a preference for one of the girls. Also, they both get known in their schools for having done something special, and enter the tournament for a personal reason.
report Recommended by NahEy
They both follow a male lead. Meets a girl while they were changing. The girl is a princess of some other kingdom. Both female leads have fire power. Have other females that likes the male lead. Both anime have a tournament that either they team up of need to fight each other. Male lead is either looked down or new to the school and over time make a cool reputation. Anime ends with the male lead or the male lead/female lead defeating a strong person. Either in a epic way or short epic way.

They have nearly identical settings, and most of the cast is also the same right down to their costumes and hair. They both enjoy the same sorts of action in the same sorts of places, and it's about the same level of quality. They have literally the same opening scene for the main characters, and the main characters enjoy a romance that is far more similar than it is different. Gakusen Toshi Asterisk takes itself much more seriously, however, where Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry is more of a parody.

These shows are very similar: They both involve schools and students competing against each other one a year, with swords and magic ect. Both Protagonists have a bad past (one of them not as bad), and they both hold a massive power that they can only use for a certain amount of time before passing out with no energy. They both meet with a Princess, and she starts to like them as they work together everyday to win the tournaments.

Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry or Chivalry of a Failed Knight in English is a show that in some ways, is fundamentally the same as Gakusen Toshi Asterisk or The Asterisk War in English. I've watched these shows a few times each and really, when I was re-watching The Asterisk War I kept combining the points of Chivalry of a Failed Knight and the Asterisk War quite a lot, specific parts would intensely interlope, I went through basically the whole show thinking there were three seasons because I'd kept remembering points from Chivalry of a Failed Knight and believing they were in the Asterisk War.

Both series revolve around the same premise: a grand competition of strength via, in essence, qualification brackets. Very similar characters across both stories from the supporting cast to the main heroine as well as a "hidden strength" yet still mortal protagonist. Rakudai has a more compelling story and main character whilst Gakusen Toshi Asterisk strays towards a more generic anime style. However, there's no denying that the two are remarkably similar.

If you like Gakusen Toshi Asterisk which I know sucks. Theres a better anime similar to Ass war Not only is it set in an academy it also has a battle in which students fight each other. But Rakudai is MUCH more better than Ass war its much more realistic. Why you say? Who the fuck comes with the idea that a student govern a whole school in which in rakudai the school is governed by an adult. So stop watching ass war

Both have really great similarities such as the plot, characters and events. It is especially similar at the start specifically the first episodes wherein the two mcs meet. Both have really similar mc especially with their powers that are restrained due to being OP and due to being told that their powers might hurt people. Although these two mc's are the same, their leading ladies also have the same personality being a tsundere. They also have a similar hair color that makes you think a possibility of a certain reference of the two. Overall, I recommend Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry better than Gakusen Toshi Asterisk.

Both anime protagonists have an op ability that makes them unbeatable. For example Ikki has an ability called "irregular guarding" which I think is basically the anime term for "flukes." He also posses an ability called "Itou Shura" which allows him to rid himself of physical limitations for a limited period of time. He can only use this ability once a day and once used it consumes most of his energy.

They both have similar concepts of an underdog rising from the bottom. They are both kinda harem Both of them follow a Protagonist 'couple' Just watch them both. The execution of everything overall is better in chivalry of a failed knight. their beginnings are practically the same, the characters are pretty close to being the same but while watching it, it feels similar but different enough that you can enjoy it.
