      I have seen every anime on the list, and in my opinion, non are similar. (tbh I have yet to see something I consider similar)

      SnS- having a tsundere heroine isn't enough to make the series similar. nor is being an action/romance. tsundere character dynamic in KnS is also very unique

      Darker than Black- I don't even know why this is on the list tbh. "contractor" isn't enough of a similarity to say they are similar

      Aesthetic of a rogue hero- I am almost offended that you would even suggest that that steaming pile of ecchi crap is "similar" to KnS.

      ZnT- (see SnS response)

      Full Metal Panic- once again tsundere lead just isn't enough. I honestly can't even think of another reason you would suggest this.

      Fate/Night- nope. sabre and Rin are KINDA tsunderes and there is magic involved, but that is about where similarities end. character interactions are very different.

      Great list man, some very good titles. Still i would say there is nothing like Kaze No Stigma. I will explain why...

      1. The protagonist is very strong from the very beginning of the series.

      2. He looks way too cool and mature.

      3. He always stays on his guards, no one can touch him, unlike other protagonists who always gets beaten by girls for stupidness and pervertedness.

      4. The backbone of this show is its unique storyline, never seen anything quite like it before. I was already glued to the show after watching it for 10 minutes.

      I really really hoped for the second season but it ended there.

      If there is any protagonist that comes close to Kazuma, would be Ryner from the "Legend of the Legendary Heroes".

      Your list is great I have watched all of them, i really like anime with strong protagonist or lead character with hidden talent/ability.

      If we talk about hidden ability the first anime that comes in my mind would be "Ghost Hunt".
