Oh, how wonderful it is to have the power of imagination and dreams. That is one of the mindsets you should be in when it comes to the anime Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid. Without giving away too much of the plot, you have such things as the main characters turning into weapons when being kissed and after that, perhaps nothing else will surprise you about this anime. One thing which is true though about this kind of genre is the following: sex sells. This is something which is known when it comes to any marketing strategy. Just look at anything in the entertainment business – movies, games, anime etc. But usually it’s only a small part of a larger story and when it’s about anime, it usually comes off as crazy, cute, or just darn ridiculous in a weird kind of funny way.
So let’s jump right into the recommendations!
Similar Anime to Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid
1. Sakura Trick
- Episodes: 12
- Aired: January 10, 2014 – March 28, 2014
Sakura Trick is the story of two high school girls, Haruka and Yuu who go to a high school which is about to close down in a few years, making them among the last students to enter the school. They share something more than just friendship between them – a kiss that will strengthen their relationship even further.
What similarities do Sakura Trick and Valkyrie Drive share? Let’s see... the most obvious one has to be that in both anime, we have a lot of kissing between girls and these kisses cause their relationships to grow stronger, beyond those of mere friendship.. Even though they are similar in a lot of ways, Sakura Trick can be a little more soft on the ecchi part compared to Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid.

But with this power a warrior’s stamina gets drained and the only way to get their stamina back is by the liquid substance which the Qwaser’s female partner possesses.
Seikon no Qwaser and Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid share some sexual similarities. For example, both anime use a sexual way to power up their weapons. If grown men breastfeeding doesn’t make an anime stand out then what does? But anyhow, they don’t just do this to power up the weapons. They also do it in order to get their energy back when they have used it for fighting. Both anime have many scenes with nudity and some pretty awesome fighting scenes.

3. Queen's Blade: Rurou no Senshi

This anime takes place in a far off land were a tournament is held through which the land’s next queen is chosen by the victor. To make it into this tournament, the women have to be top-notch when it comes to fighting.
Both anime have the style of showing a lot of nudity especially when it comes to breasts. Even though this is a big element in both anime, they have the similarity of featuring many strong warriors. Where these anime meet is in how little clothing/armor the characters seem to be wearing even though these women are strong fighters. The female fighters of course have some armor when battling, but other than that we have two over-the-top ecchi-style anime.

Freezing and Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid are two anime which both share the similarity of being about two characters fighting together somehow. Another one would be that they share a cast full of strong women with armor. Of course, the biggest thing the two anime have which make them similar is the big focus on the ecchi interactions. And this goes without saying, but they also have lots of fan service.
