13 Similar Anime For Go! Go! Loser Ranger! Fans

Go! Go! Loser Ranger! is a new anime that is going to hit the screens this season. It’s inspired by a manga from Negi Haruba, the same creator behind The Quintessential Quintuplets.

This anime is a spoof of the Super Sentai anime, showing a battle between the Dragon Keepers and some bad guys.

But there’s a twist: the bad guys are already defeated, and only their leftover soldiers are left. The Keepers use them to pretend they’re still heroes.

Go! Go! Loser Ranger! flips the script on the typical Super Sentai tale, injecting it with cynicism instead of classic heroics.

If you’re into darker, more cynical superhero stories or enjoy poking fun at standard hero tropes, this anime is for you. But if you’re looking for similar satirical anime, there are other options to consider too.

1) One-Punch Man 

Saitama is a part-time hero who battles monsters as a hobby. Despite being relatively unknown, he’s possibly one of the most powerful heroes out there, defeating any foe with just one punch.

However, this incredible strength leaves him bored with hero work, as he longs for a challenge that can actually excite him.

One Punch Man stands out as one of the most popular superhero series. Unlike the optimism of My Hero Academia, it takes a more cynical view of hero associations and heroes themselves.

However, it’s still a hilarious satire of the superhero genre, appealing to both fans and newcomers alike.

2) My Hero Academia

What’s unknown to both groups is that Red Gelato and the Reaper Princess have fallen for each other. They’ve turned their fights into secret dates, hidden from their societies.

Love After World Domination is a silly, enjoyable romantic comedy that doubles as a parody of the Super Sentai idea. It throws in a bit of the star-crossed lovers theme, but mainly, it’s all about the laughs and jokes.

Strangely, Casshern, the one responsible for this ruin, has no memory of his actions. Casshern Sins offers a darker take on the classic superhero anime, Neo-Human Casshern.

Though it’s not your typical superhero story, it does draw on elements and tropes from that genre, shaping its storytelling and action in unique ways.
