10. Ao no Exorcist

 

Synopsis – Humans live in the world of Assiah, demons in Gehenna. The two dimensions are not meant to interfere with each other, but demons still possess creatures in Assiah in spite of this. The humans who can fight these demons are known as exorcists. Rin Okumura is a boy who bears the curse of being Satan’s illegitimate son. His foster father sacrificed himself to save him from demons. To avenge his foster father’s death as well as to prove himself, Rin decides to follow the path of an exorcist.

Similarity –The main characters are supernatural beings that are trying to learn to live with their demonic powers and to search for the truth behind it and their origins. They are both considered highly dangerous as they have issues controlling it. to add, they have groups after them to wipe both out. Ao no Exorcist is more of a classic shounen while Strike the Blood tends to be more of your action-harem series. Both showcase pretty good powers and fighting scenes.

9. High School DxD

High School DxD

Synopsis – High school student Issei Hyoudou is your run-of-the-mill pervert who does nothing productive with his life, peeping on women and dreaming of having his own harem one day. Things seem to be looking up for Issei when a beautiful girl asks him out on a date, although she turns out to be a fallen angel who brutally kills him! However, he gets a second chance at life when beautiful senior student Rias Gremory, who is a top-class devil, revives him as her servant, recruiting Issei into the ranks of the school’s Occult Research Club.

Slowly adjusting to his new life, Issei must train and fight in order to survive in the violent world of angels and devils. Each new adventure leads to many hilarious (and risqué) moments with his new comrades, all the while keeping his new life a secret from his friends and family in High School DxD!

Similarity – Strike the Blood and High School DxD are both anime which are listed as ecchi, but are packed with action in an attempt to create a plot. High School DxD focuses more on the ecchi side but still has a decent plot. Strike the Blood is more focused on the plot, and less on the ecchi side of things. The main protagonist in each of the series is turned into supernatural beings, tearing apart their normal life. They then go through development as their respective beings. Both of the series have harem elements, but it has a greater presence in High School DxD. I found the two series to be enjoyable, but Highschool DxD is not for you if you do not prefer ecchi anime.

8. Hataraku Maou-sama!

Hataraku Maou sama

Synopsis- Striking fear into the hearts of mortals, the Demon Lord Satan begins to conquer the land of Ente Isla with his vast demon armies. However, while embarking on this brutal quest to take over the continent, his efforts are foiled by the hero Emilia, forcing Satan to make his swift retreat through a dimensional portal only to land in the human world. Along with his loyal general Alsiel, the demon finds himself stranded in modern-day Tokyo and vows to return and complete his subjugation of Ente Isla—that is if they can find a way back!

Powerless in a world without magic, Satan assumes the guise of a human named Sadao Maou and begins working at MgRonald’s—a local fast-food restaurant—to make ends meet. He soon realizes that his goal of conquering Ente Isla is just not enough as he grows determined to climb the corporate ladder and become the ruler of Earth, one satisfied customer at a time!

Whether it’s part-time work, household chores, or simply trying to pay the rent on time, Hataraku Maou-sama! presents a hilarious view of the most mundane aspects of everyday life, all through the eyes of a hapless demon lord.

Similarity – Both have a main male character with great supernatural power, in positions that are seen as threats to humanity, which cause the main female character heroine to antagonize and supervise the main male character despite his upstanding, even heroic, behavior.

However, while they’re both shounen plots, in “Hataraku Maou-sama!”, the plot is light and comedic, and the romantic subplot is more subtle than it is in the more serious and harem plot format in “Strike the Blood”.

If you like supernatural shounen titles with strong, upstanding male leads with sassy main female love interests, both are worth checking out.

7. Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei (The Irregular at Magic High School)

Synopsis – In the dawn of the 21st century, magic, long thought to be folklore and fairy tales, has become a systematized technology and is taught as a technical skill. In First High School, the institution for magicians, students are segregated into two groups based on their entrance exam scores: “Blooms,” those who receive high scores, are assigned to the First Course, while “Weeds” are reserve students assigned to the Second Course.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei follows the siblings, Tatsuya and Miyuki Shiba, who are enrolled in First High School. Upon taking the exam, the prodigious Miyuki is placed in the First Course, while Tatsuya is relegated to the Second Course. Though his practical test scores and status as a “Weed” show him to be magically inept, he possesses the extraordinary technical knowledge, physical combat capabilities, and unique magic techniques—making Tatsuya the irregular at a magical high school.

Similarity – These two anime both feature a futuristic world which is filled with magic and magic-related elements. Strike the Blood goes a bit further by also adding some supernatural elements. They both contain action and romance but Strike the Blood also adds in some ecchi and comedy.

Both anime also feature annoying, yet skillful female main characters. You have Miyuki from Mahouka who calls her brother Tatsuya by “Onii-sama” about a hundred times per episode and Yukina from Strike the Blood who insists on interrupting Kojou’s catchphrase “This is my fight” with her infamous “No Senpai, this is OUR fight.”

6. Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou

Synopsis – Dreaming of changing the world for good, Akuto Sai transfers to Constant Magic Academy where he befriends a virtuous ninja clan member, Junko Hattori. On the way to the academy, they vow to make the world a better place together; however, the situation suddenly takes a turn for the worse upon his arrival—it is prophesied that he will become the Demon King!

As word of his destiny spreads, the school begins to fear him, and Junko’s trust in him falters. While Akuto is determined to not let his predicted future control his fate, it seems as though everything he says and does only serve to reinforce the fact that he is destined to be the Demon King. Moreover, he is surrounded by a harem of beautiful girls who each have their own plans for him, ranging from bringing him to justice to simply showering him with love. With his newly awakened powers, Akuto must cope with his constantly growing list of misfortune and fight to prove that his fate is not set in stone.

Similarity – Both series involve a boy, who’s pretty serious and if it wasn’t for the series actually TELLING you that he will cause a big deal of damage and annoyance to the other characters in the series, you would of never have suspected him to do anything to cause attention and could make the easy assumption that he’s just a typical dopey protagonist that the female characters can scream at and take their misunderstandings seriously.
Both series also reveal an observer that has been sent over to make sure they aren’t messing anything up. This causes the male lead to becoming nervous, and again the misunderstandings are taken seriously. Cause the threat to “report sexual harassment” to occur.
Of course, both revolve around the same thing as – the male lead has a power that he rather not have but uses seriously when he feels the time is right. A lot of people think the male lead’s a bad guy before they have even done anything destructive.

5. Blood Lad

Blood Lad

Synopsis –Staz Charlie Blood is a powerful vampire who rules the Eastern district of Demon World. According to rumors, he is a bloodthirsty and merciless monster, but in reality, Staz is just an otaku obsessed with Japanese culture and completely uninterested in human blood. Leaving the management of his territory to his underlings, Staz spends his days lazing around, indulging in anime, manga, and games.

When Fuyumi Yanagi, a Japanese girl, accidentally wanders through a portal leading into the demon world, Staz is overjoyed. But just as he is starting to feel an unusual attraction to her, his territory is attacked, resulting in Fuyumi’s untimely death. She turns into a wandering ghost and the crestfallen Staz vows to resurrect her as this would mean being able to travel to the human world, something he has always dreamed of.

Blood Lad follows Staz and Fuyumi, soon joined by the spatial magician Bell and the half-werewolf Wolf, as they travel to find a magic that can bring humans back to life.

Similarity – These two primarily action-focused anime both feature a strong male lead that is an immortal vampire. Both male leads can summon familiars and other powers that they use in battle. Both anime also contains a bit of romance, and a good amount of comedy and ecchi/fanservice.

4. Tokyo Ravens

Tokyo Ravens

Synopsis – Onmyoudou magic was once a powerful technique used by the Japanese during the Second World War in order for them to gain the upper hand and establish their nation as a formidable force. But Japan was quickly defeated after the revered onmyouji Yakou Tsuchimikado caused the “Great Spiritual Disaster,” an event which plagues Tokyo to this very day. As a result of this mishap, the Onmyou Agency was established in order to exorcise further spiritual disasters and combat the demons that would make their way into the world.

Now, Onmyoudou has become far more modern, simplified, and refined for use in a wide variety of applications such as medicine and technology. However, not everyone is able to utilize the magic, as is the case with Harutora, a member of the Tsuchimikado’s branch family. Despite an old promise to protect Natsume, the heir of the Tsuchimikado’s main family and Yakou’s supposed reincarnation, as her familiar, Harutora has no talent and chooses to live a normal life instead. But when a prominent member of the Onmyou Agency attempts to recreate the same experiment which led to Japan’s downfall, he decides to make good on his word and fight by Natsume’s side.

Each arc contains an antagonist who mostly threatening the main characters or several methods in achieving their goals. Supernatural themes were used to fight off enemies with their unique powers.

3. Kyoukai no Kanata

Synopsis – Mirai Kuriyama is the sole survivor of a clan of Spirit World warriors with the power to employ their blood as weapons. As such, Mirai is tasked with hunting down and killing “youmu”—creatures said to be the manifestation of negative human emotions. One day, while deep in thought on the school roof, Mirai comes across Akihito Kanbara, a rare half-breed of youmu in human form. In a panicked state, she plunges her blood saber into him only to realize that he’s an immortal being. From then on, the two form an impromptu friendship that revolves around Mirai constantly trying to kill Akihito, in an effort to boost her own wavering confidence as a Spirit World Warrior. Eventually, Akihito also manages to convince her to join the Literary Club, which houses two other powerful Spirit World Warriors, Hiroomi and Mitsuki Nase.

As the group’s bond strengthens, however, so does the tenacity of the youmu around them. Their misadventures will soon turn into a fight for survival as the inevitable release of the most powerful youmu, Beyond the Boundary, approaches.

Similarity – Both series are similar to a male and female protagonist involved with the supernatural which leads to many action scenes. The female leads are quite similar as they are always with their “sempai” (male protagonist), and believing they are perverts.

Synopsis – Some people suddenly find religion, but for 16-year-old Kusanagi Godou, it’s that REALLY old time religion that’s found him! As the result of defeating the God of War in mortal combat, Godou’s stuck with the unwanted position of Campione!, or God Slayer, whose duty is to fight Heretical Gods whenever they try to muscle in on the local turf. Not only is this likely to make Godou roadkill on the Highway to Heaven, it’s also a job that comes with a lot of other problems. Like how to deal with the fact that his “enhanced status” is attracting a bevy of overly-worshipped female followers. After all, they’re just there to aid him in his demi-godly duties, right?

Get ready for immortal affairs, heavenly harems and lots of dueling deities taking pious in the face as the ultimate smash, bash, and thrash of the Titans rocks both Heaven and Earth.
