Jayage Jayage says...

Both are Fantasy animes about adventurers who fight goblins, goblins,goblins, goblins and even more goblins, in both the fights against the goblins are very intense in are never easy for the adventures.

Fluffs Fluffs says...

Neither of these is your typical perfect-isekai anime. Both deal with some dark topics and don't idolize the troubles characters face

Brino Brino says...

Both are more dark than entertaining. And they both picture a more realistic kindof MMORPG survivalism and combat with a focus on what could happen to party and guild members, friends and comerades when they go to war even with minor creatures like goblins. Both deal with the theme of losing people.

zorlop zorlop says...

They are both a gritty realistic style that makes you feel a sense of realism for the characters.

MonopolyPutin MonopolyPutin says...

Both are dark fantasy adventures that leave you wanting more.  Grimgar may be a descent bit lighter than Goblin Slayer, but it is not any less entetaining.  

LordKira1 LordKira1 says...

They are both Fantasy animes but feature slightly more realistic setting which makes the anime darker. Both animes treat phiscal and emotional weight well.  

LastDarkness LastDarkness says...

Both have similar Dark Fantasy themes. The universes they exists in are very unforgiving and difficult compared to standard fantasy and character death or worse is a very real everyday possibility.   Dark Fantasy is the Souls style of anime.

Rimerida Rimerida says...

Same dark isekai, tell stories about goblin frequently, death character in early story, revenge to goblin

cheeseburito cheeseburito says...

Both of them are like MNORPg games which involves a lot of violent and awesome fight scenes with goblins and other monsters. The characters are also very interesting. Both of them has a party of members whom fight togehter inorder to complete there tasks which makes it more interesting to watch. The characters all develops Throughout the story which is very awesome

MistLiigh MistLiigh says...

Goblin Slayer very quickly made me think of Grimgar in its world design (moreso than other fantasy anime), but replacing the character and story elements that made Grimgar a fascinating and compelling series with pure shock value. So if you're interested in what Goblin Slayer could have been if it weren't all about controversial subject matter, Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash may be worth checking out.

Berserk

Berserk

Born beneath the gallows tree from which his dead mother hung, Guts has always existed on the boundary between life and death. After enduring a terrible childhood, he spends his adulthood in brutal combat, pitting his strength against others in order to build his own. Life is simple enough for Guts until he meets Griffith, the inspirational, ambitious, and beautiful leader of the mercenaries, the Band of the Hawks. When Guts loses to Griffith in a duel, he is forced to join the group, and, despite himself, finds a sense of camaraderie and belonging amongst them. However, as Griffith leads his soldiers from victory to victory, the bloody wars and underhanded politics reveal a side to him that nobody quite expected. Can Guts, a simple warrior, defend those who have come to mean the most to him, all the while struggling not to lose to the darkness he has carried with him his entire life?

Both anime have a dark atmosphere, beings in this world are brutal. We gets lots of fights, action, gore, blood and rape. 

niotabunny niotabunny says...

if you find all the dark, edgy nature of new, then check out the original take on dark and edgy before it became known and possibly slightly cliche and that being Berserk.   Berserk took to the stage of rape, gore and violence and then comes along Goblin Slayer with the same atmosphere with a modern twist.

captivus captivus says...

Both feature a typical isekai fantasy world (even if goblin slayer isn't an isekai) and both are deconstructions of the isekai genre by showing the viewer how a life in such a would look like realistically. Both deconstruct the typical main protagonist 'the Hero' character tropes. Both feature explicit violence which is used to propel the story and highlight the motivation of the characters of the show.
