No Game No Life

There's quite a lot in common about both of these shows. Both shows feature protagonists that are gamers and who otherwise shun social interactions in favor of those games. And in both series, fantastical elements force the protagonists to use their gaming skills to accomplish certain tasks. In TWGOK, Keima is an avid dating sim player who must capture the hearts of real girls possessed by rogue spirits to force out those spirits; in NGNL, Sora and Shiro end up in a fantasy world where they must win games of all sorts to help the human race reclaim their territory. What really makes these two shows similar, though, is how these games are played out. Both Keima and the Sora/Shiro team make elaborate plans to achieve their objectives, and they are shown executing these plans and sometimes changing them up on the fly when unexpected complications come up. The execution of Keima's conquests and Sora and Shiro's games both come out very entertaining as their plans come to fruition. Both shows also feature nods to various aspects of gaming and have plenty of gaming humor to go with them.
