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.
I find that the common theme between these two anime is people, more specifically NEETS and gamers, living in a different world, working towards harmony between species. NGNL sounds more action-based, whereas Ourbreak Company was more on the comedic sice. Either way, the animation is fantastic on both of them.
Both anime is very relatable in that the main characters from both anime, which happens to be NEETS, enters a different world. While one is addicted to manga, the other is addicted to games. The manga addicted NEET enters a world that's just like his anime fantasies, while the gaming addicted NEETS enter a world that's rulled by only games.
Both shows follow main character neets/shut in otakus who are transported to a fantastical land and, upon meeting that lands cute female ruler, become icons for drastic change throught the land. Both have a lot of very funny anime references and cameos.
Both involve people who are secluded from society, and get transported to a different world, and are put in a position of power. Both anime involve anime/manga and games, and both have decent graphics and pretty good voice actors.
The atmosphere in Outbreak is less strategical, but the environment where everything takes place feels the same. The magical element is there and there is comedy in both, but No Game has a lot more actual games. If you liked Sora, Shinichi is pretty similar, probably not showing his teasing flirtatious side as much, but still a bit of one that fans of parts of girls. Sora is portrayed as a bit overpowered but Shinichi isn't as overpowered but instead his constant passion is showed. Furthremore, their both otakus.
When Demon King Satan was facing his demise at the hands of Hero Emilia, he had no choice but to quickly flee to another world with his Demon General, Alsiel. However, upon their arrival, the twosome is taken aback with the realization they have lost almost all of their magic - and moreover, were transformed into ordinary humans and are stranded in an otherworldly place called Japan! To survive, the Demon King must now work a part-time job at a fast-food joint and attempt to adapt to modern society the best the pair can as Japanese citizens, all while scheming to rule over the country in the process. But with Hero Emilia and others on Satan’s tail to slay him for good, will Japan ever become his new domain?
Both are funny animes with likable characters. But the story is little different. I really liked Maou-sama and i like how the story is going for Outbreak Company
Both Hataraku Maou-sama! and Outbreak Company involve character's from one world going to another. In Hataraku it's people from a fantasy world going to our world, and in Outbreak Company, it's people from our world going to a fantasy world. Both have great comedy elements.
If you enjoyed one of these stories for traveling to another world, you will probably like the other as well.
Both shows involve characters discovering new worlds and try living in it. The difference between the shows is that with hatarake maou sama the characters tries to adjust to the new world and in outbreak company the character tries to teach his culture to the new world.
In the magical land of Flonyard, animal-eared inhabitants battle each other for resources in harmless war games. One region, Biscotti, has fought valiantly but is on the verge of financial ruin when its princess, Millhiore, makes a decision: she’ll summon a champion who can fight for their honor! Through a magical portal comes Shinku, a once-typical middle school student who’s eager to join the cause. But soon, both Millhiore and Shinku make a terrible discovery: those who are summoned can’t return home! Now, as Shinku continues to train and fight for Biscotti, he and the others must also try to find a way for the boy to someday get back to his loving friends and family.
Each of these shows has a pretty similar premise, with each revolving around a main character who is summoned to another world and given the task of improving the relationship between two worlds, as well as helping to improve the standards of living along the way. There are also parallels in the way conflicts are handled.
Outbreak Company is a lot funnier, and generally an all-round better show than Dog Days, but anyone who enjoyed the themes of one should give the other a go.
In a world where magic is a reality, the young Louise is at the bottom of her class. Dubbed "Zero" by her classmates at Tristein Academy (due to her zero success rate for magic), Louise (along with all first year students) was charged with summoning a familiar; and instead of a cute magical creature, the familiar arrived in the form of... Saito Hiraga, a normal Japanese boy who was abruptly teleported from his own world?! Can both Louise and Saito come to terms with their new and complicated "relationship" and (more importantly) help Saito find a way home?
As I started watching this, I quickly got a sense of Zero no Tsukaima. I'm actually surprised no ones really recommended them to each other. They are quite similiar in the way that these worlds are intertwined with our own and how the main protaganist ends up trying to instill their good natured values especially with the heiarchy system. In terms of comedy I found Outbreak Company to be much stronger but romance wise its yet to be determined. As this recommendation is made as of ep 4.
The year is 2022, and gamers have lined up on launch day for Sword Art Online, a hotly-anticipated MMORPG that lets players connect to an immersive virtual reality world with special helmets called Nerve Gear. Kirito is one such gamer who's eager to jump back into action, having spent a great deal of time as a beta tester, and quickly becomes friends with newbie warrior Klein. But soon, Sword Art Online's 10,000 players discover that not only are they unable to log out, the only way they can return to their physical bodies is by beating the 100-level tower's final boss - that is, if their HP doesn't drop to zero first, for death in the game means death in the real world. Now, with no one else to turn to, Kirito and the other participants must survive the game as best they can – some forming guilds, others ruthlessly leaving their peers behind, and many tragically falling by the wayside or to the merciless monsters populating the lands...
Apart from having the same fantasy setting, these are anime that shamelessly pander to otaku tastes. SAO is heavier on the drama and has more plot to it as well as plenty of action while Outbreak Company is mostly a comedy but they are so invested in deliberately playing with anime tropes that it is difficult not to group them together. If you enjoy loads of pretty girls, elves, maids and the like, then you are very likely to enjoy these titles.
