Three hundred years ago, the power-hungry Demon King Giri was sealed away by the legendary Migu Migu tribe. In the present, the seal on Giri has melted, and two unlikely heroes must save the world once more. Twelve year old Kukuri is a bumbling mage who is the last of the Migu Migu tribe, and thirteen year old Nike is a would-be swordsman who has been raised to be a hero; together, the two will wander the land in hopes of defeating Demon King Giri - but they aren't alone! Along with an almost-naked old man, a loincloth-wearing wind spirit and plenty of wacky companions, the duo will help townsfolk, gather Guru Guru spells and have plenty of fun in the process!

Looking for another JRPG parody? Tower of Druaga or Mahoujin Guru Guru are for you. The animation style clearly isn't similar but titles like this are rare, so you'd surely enjoy the monsters, fantasy world and ample jokes that take place in both titles.

Master of Epic: The Animation Age

Master of Epic: The Animation Age

Over millions of years, there have been many ages – war, gods, and future to name a few. Each of these was infinitely less exciting than the current Animation Age! In this RPG-esque existence, becoming stronger is paramount to one's survival and leveling up is a must. From pacifists to news casting, from fishing woes to love advice, there’s nothing the Animation Age can’t show or teach us about life in a game world! Armed with healing spells, changes of clothes and plenty of summoned familiars, the characters of Master of Epic will do what it takes to level up and live to fight another day!

Tower of Druaga and Master of Epic are both JRPG parodies, though Master of Epic is far more slapstick and random than Tower. Still, if you like this type of anime, check out one after the other.

Log Horizon

Log Horizon

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!

Tower of Druaga, like Log Horizon, has a healthy mix of fantasy adventuring, comedy, and battles in an RPG-like (or flat out RPG) setting. Tower of Druaga leans a little more on the comedy side of things of the pair, but both will appeal to the same audience for sure.

Sword Art Online II

Sword Art Online II

One year after the SAO incident, Kirito is approached by Japan’s Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications Department, Seijiro Kikuoka, with a request to enter another VRMMO called Gun Gale Online (GGO). Kikuoka informs Kirito that, “Players who are shot by a mysterious avatar with a jet black gun lose their lives even in the real world...” Unconvinced that the virtual world can affect the real world, Kirito logs on to GGO, wandering in an unfamiliar world in order to investigate the “Death Gun” incident. He is joined by a female sniper named Sinon who owns a gigantic “Hecate II” rifle. The two decide to enter the “Bullet of Bullets,” a large tournament to choose the most powerful gunner within the realm of GGO, in hopes of making direct contact with the mysterious avatar behind the “Death Gun”.

Both animes manage to display a good atmosphere of life inside a MMO.

Boss fights are pretty well done in both too.

This series is in many ways very similar.  Both involve giant towers, fighting monsters, assemblling and traveling with a party, leveling up, and unique qualties hidden about the main character. Their names are similar in a sense and they rhyme.  Both characters practically become obsessed with one of the main female characters which also inspires them to greater feats.  Both main characters start out ridiculously weak even by weaker standers of other adventurers.  Both characters face tough early trials and succeed where they were not expected to do so.  Both shows even have human or adventurer settlements inside the giant towers.  Both shows feature at least one episode where monsters somehow penetrate into one of the human settlements.  Both characters are competing against other teams even one with which they have a strong bond and connection to (in on case a girl the character likes who also saves him and in the other his older brother) but at the same time they are also some times helping each other despite being on different teams.  This especially seems true in a sense early on when both teams are still getting started. Both main characters acquire special armor and weapons as well and in both cases the weapon is so unique that they are practically devine as well as extra powerful in their hands.  

One little difference too is, Druaga and Danmachi (the Japanese name), feel like they are video game stories but have not been affirmly established as such.  Sword Art Online and Log Horizon it is established so even though it has similarites to both, it shares the unique similarity with each other because no video game connection has been affirmed yet.  Even if this happens later the fact it was delayed so long still separates it a little from SAO and Log Horizon.  SAO in later episodes strays from the central tower concept.  So there is a little bit of difference there as well since so far neither Danmachi or Druaga left the central tower theme as a focus to the overall story.

Still SAO, Druaga, and Danmachi all center, at least initially, around a gigantic central tower with many levels.
