There are probably a few people who can relate to this, I’m a bit of a man-child who, at times, still watches some children shows, namely Power Rangers. I love that show with my child like heart, but I will admit that it can be very silly. There are people wearing latex costumes fighting against rubber monsters suits and the plot revolves around five “teenagers”, even though they are the oldest teenagers I ever did see.
Again, it’s very silly, if only there was a way to at least make it not so ridiculous. Well, how about putting it in anime? You can make almost make anything look good when you make it into animation.
You can even play it off for laughs like in Hybrid x Heart Magias Academy Ataraxia.
Hida Kizuna has been transferred to a strategic defense school since he possesses the Heart Hybrid Gear. The school is full of other students with the HHG and fight off other invaders, in the skimpy outfits. Although Hida’s fighting abilities don’t exactly measure up, his sister has an idea for him to help and let just say it’s not the world’s best idea.
When I first watched the promotions for this series, I thought I was it was a hentai but that’s the whole joke of it. It is so hilarious, that I had to hold onto my side just because it was hurting so much from the laughter.
So here are 8 Animes like Hybrid x Heart Magias Academy Ataraxia and be forewarned most of them are playing more of a serious tone rather than a comedic tone.
Shinmai Maou no Testament (The Testament of Sister New Devil)
If you only went by the first trailer of this series, you would only think that it’s a slice of life anime.
Toujo Basara has just found out that his father is getting remarried and is going to have two new step sisters. He’s more than a little unenthusiastic of hearing this news. Then when he finds out that his new step-siblings are more than what they say are, he goes on one crazy adventure.
It has a lot of action and it can be very raunchy. It may not be for the ladies but the dudes will definitely get a kick out of this show.
IS: Infinite Stratos
Okay, this is one of the less raunchy anime series on this list.
Orimura Ichika, a 15-year old boy, accidentally touches an armed powered female exoskeleton called “Infinite Stratos.” Now, since he is the only male to make the suit work, he attends an all female pilot training school. Ichika’s school life surrounded by girls has begun.
This is a really cool anime, with people having robot suits. The action is spectacular, the animation is very pretty to look at, and the story is solid. What I’m trying to say is you should watch this series.
Shinmai Maou no Testament Burst (The Testament of Sister New Devil: Burst)
Shinmai Maou no Testament Burst directly follows the events of the previous season, with the two steps sisters trying to have a normal life. Although, that proves to be difficult when one of their older sisters comes to insist on both of them to go back to the demon realm.
And you thought this series couldn’t get anymore raunchier, well my friend you are so wrong. Again, it has a lot of action which is awesome, they dial up on the animation, and everything is just bigger on so many levels. Guys, I’m just saying, you may want to watch this anime.
Saijaku Muhai no Bahamut (Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle)
Lux is a former prince of an empire, who ends up attending a female-only academy. The academy trains students in becoming Drag-Knights, a special kind of soldier who pilots giant mechanical robots called Drag-Ride. He isn’t as strong as he once was but he will find something deep within him to help him become a great fighter once more.
I very feel very strongly about this anime and recommend it for a lot of reasons such as the characters, the comedy, the story, and just about everything about it is simply great.
Kenzen Robo Daimidaler (Daimidaler: Prince vs. Penguin Empire)
How can I best put this? The English title is called “Daimidaler: Prince vs. Penguin Empire.” I think you’re not supposed to take this seriously.
A high school boy named Madanbashi Kouichi has the power source to operate a robot called Daimidaler. With the help from the Prince Beauty Parlor organization, he’s able to fight against the Penguin Empire.
Simply put if you like crazy and nonsensical anime, then you will love this show.
Scared Rider Xechs
Now something a little more serious.
The Blue World is Under attack by the red world. A 17-year old girl named Akira Asagi, leads the war with the help of six super people known as the Scared Rider Xechs.
This is the closet of something like the Power Rangers you are ever going to get. A must for those who want to go back to their childhood.
Hayato Kisaragi is a survivor of an alien attack known as the “Savage.” When he took a test and found out that he ranks high on it, he is invited to a prestigious military academy, to train for and pilot the only weapon that can take on the Savage known as Hundred.
Giant robots fighting against giant monsters is just awesome, Nuff said. A must watch for those who like this kind of genre.
