However, a turn of events leaves Kraft in an unexpected predicament where he may lose something more precious than just his cart of goods...
Both anime have the same slow-paced medieval setting. Economics is also really important in both anime.
Both animes have a lot in common. They base heavy on ecconomy during their plots and use it to create and explain problems in a higher magnitued, while they differ on the scale. Both animes are also not the fast and action-like type, while there are few times, you get to see a battle, which tend to be breathtaking in their dimensions... well, in a certain way at least.
With over 20 million players worldwide, Elder Tale is one of the hottest online RPGs. At least, it used to be only a game, until the fateful day that tens of thousands of players became stuck in the virtual world, unable to log out. For these would-be knights, healers and magicians, Elder Tale is no longer a hobby, it’s a reality, complete with tasteless in-game food, revivals upon death, and boring NPC conversations! With no other options than to accept their fates, the analytical Shiroe, perverted-and-proud Naotsugu, tiny and adorable Akatsuki and other new friends must adjust to their new lives in Elder Tale, avoiding player killers and monsters along the way!
These two animes have a few similarities that really stand out. They both build new economies and deal with creating a better world, and they both have powerful characters who have some cool fight scenes. Fighting does not decide everything in these worlds. It often comes down to polotics. I really enjoyed this aspect in both.
These two anime are written by the same writer, they touch on fantasy worlds, but with a complex approach to politics and economics.
Despite touching on serious matters, they are both light heartead, with endearing charracters, what the writer does provide is a bit more depth to these charracters than usually expected, and that is definitely a bonus for me.
An urban legend states that those exceptionally gifted at gaming will be sent a special game invitation, and the winners of the challenge will be whisked away to another world. When Sora and Shiro, two hikikomori NEETs who happen to be both siblings and notorious gamers, receive this invitation, they defeat it with ease. And like the legends tell, they're transported to another world where conflicts, peoples' lives and even country borders are decided by competitions and games. Always up for a challenge, the pair quickly take on the obstacles that come their way, whether it be restoring lowly humanity's good name compared with the other races or helping influence who will become the next king.
Both of these anime are about rebuilding whole societies. While Maoyuu Maou Yuusha focuses more on the individual aspect of improving a country; while No Game No Life focuses more on the ways to unite more than one. They're both pretty heavy on the fan service (as a girl, I could watch it, so it's not too heavy) & they both have a great comedy base. If you enjoyed one, I think you'll enjoy the other.
Both of these animes focus on ruling a kingdom and fighting. Maoyuu is more medival and involves actualal fighting while No Game involves gambling and board games mostly, neither one are focused on violence. Both deal with politics and two different races (if you can call it that) who don't get along and one is taking advantage. No Game is more focused on an actual story and characters though and appeals to a larger audience while Maoyuu mainly focuses on politics, business, and agriculture. The style is very different, but the subjects and conflicts approached in both are simmilar.
Yohko is nothing but ordinary. Throughout her life she has been considered an outcast, especially with a hair color not native to many in Japan, bright red. Things change for Yohko when a mysterious man named Keiki arrives and claims that she is his empress. Yohko and two friends are then taken through a vortex, and then abandoned.. in a world of demons and magic.
In Maou Yuusha a hero and the queen of demons partner together to bring peace to all the land. Maou Yuusha is similar to Twelve Kingdom because it has a lot to do with war tactics and "chosen ones" being at the front lines to lead everyone. They both also have go on a journey to understand his or herself and what they truely want. Youko in Twelve kingdom had to accept being a new queen while the Hero needed to accept partnering with the demon queen and changing his own view points of killing all the demons. Twelve kingdom has a theme of half human- half animal. But, in Yuusha there are demon vs human type of conflicts. They both fight with swords and have religious themes. Lots of themes overlap and I recommend both!
One day, without warning, a huge hole appeared in the world and demons emerged, ready for battle. Assuming that the demon king sealed by a hero 1,000 years ago must have escaped, the king of the land set forth a decree: the hero’s descendents must defeat evil once more! For Alba, one such would-be hero, this journey will be anything but ordinary given his growing collection of bizarre and wacky companions. Alongside young demon Ruki, age-inappropriate Ruldolf, tentacle-fighter witch Zwei and a host of others, Alba will get arrested, play dodgeball, travel across the land, and least importantly, learn the truth about the hole in the world!
