Is this anime like Zero no Tsukaima?

Kinda, but a couple of orders of magnitude better.

The plot is way more interesting that ZnT. The worldbuilding is great and you actually care about what happens inthe story. Sadly, the pacing is not very well done, where the second season's first half is a massive waste of time, and the whole 3rd season is rushed as fuck.

The characters are also a lot bettter, specially the main girl Shana. It's the same archetype tsundere but she's a lot less violent, more likeable, reasonable, and she actually holds her own weight in the story. Her relationship with the MC develops very naturally and she's all around a great girl.

If you enjoyed ZnT, I'd say there are high chances you'll enjoy this one a lot more.

Ah okay, thanks for that

Also, there are 3 seaons and some OVAs. I don't remember if you should watch the OVAs after s1 or s2, but definitely watch them before s3. They add a lot of development between the characters.

And you can ignore the movie, its just a recap of s1 with a bit new animation.

Be sure to get some old school fansubs, you're gonna want to keep those de arimasu~.

Simple answer is no. They are different genres and have different plot.

Hmm, the OVAs might have been what I was doing wrong with this show. I felt there was far too much of a genre shift between seasons 2 and 3, and completely dropped it a few episodes in. Which is a shame, because I realy did enjoy the worldbuilding and characters. Even though it draws so much influence from the Fate series it's not even funny.
Thanks for the pro tip. I may have to reevaluate my thoughts on this series.

Not really, same type of tsundere but she's actually reliable in a fight immediately and still powers up, plus the whole premise has no relationship whatsoever. ZnT was one of the first anime I've seen so it and Louise hold a special place in my heart.

I'm glad it's going to be finished and I'm surprised the LN hasn't been licensed yet

I couldn't agree more with everything you said. ZnT was also my first anime and gave me a really nice memory of watching it. I also hope the LN gets licensed because I wanna read the hard copy

I enjoyed ZnT but it goes downhill very fast after the first season. I can't help but feel like it was a massive wasted potential. The setting is quite interesting, with this fantasy world where there are slight glances of real world technology and people. And the MC is quite likeable and not too overpowered.

Sadly they overplayed the harem thing. The elf bitch is the worst character I've ever seen.

I hope in the end he ends up marrying (for real) the main girl, while keeping the queen as his mistress for the sake of the kingdom.

Not really, Shana is not abusive.
