No Game No Life

No Game No Life

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.

Reasons you might like No Game No Life...

Doremi Doremi says...

When I first saw No Game No Life, I was instantly reminded of Mondai-Ji-tachi

Both are about people who are brought to another world because they don't feel they belong there, or for their talents. In NGNL you can decide absolutely everything by games, and in Mondai-Ji, it's mostly about ranking your household and/or expand it. The characters aren't so alike, but both are likable.

The whole setting is very similar, but I think that Mondai-Ji may have more comedy in it. Either way if you liked one of these, you will most definetly like the other.

DarkMagicianGirl DarkMagicianGirl says...

In both anime the proteges are superior to the others in the world. There better in everything but doing everything because the like it.And mos important of all because they can.

In both worlds everything is decided trough games. They have to win to gain.

If you like one you will like the other. Both the same kind of humor and actions. You should watch them

vernanonix vernanonix says...

As soon as I saw the actual concept of No Game No Life, I immeadialy was reminded of Problem Children. Both anime pluck special individuals from their normal world and whisk them off to fantastic landscapes where betting in games is the only way to decide things in the world. Granted, problem children has a superpower aspect to it that No Game lacks, but they have the same premise on a conceptual level. Bother a very pretty and prove entertaining as well.

EmperorGilgamesh EmperorGilgamesh says...

they are both about kids thrown into another world in which that world survives on games. they, so far, are quite alike but different. i recommend both. any ways enjoy.

shikikywketsuki shikikywketsuki says...

In both these animes the main characters travel to a diffrent fantasy world after reciving a werid message. when entering these world they have to play a number of games in order to achieve goals or win prizes. The main characters also seem very OP in both animes.

So basicly if you one enjoy you will enjoy the other as the have a very similar story line and genre.

demigodchaos demigodchaos says...

Saying That the second season of Problem Children doesn't come this may be at least a nice Altra-Universe title.

Brad Brad says...

From the minute I saw the synopsis for NGNL I was reminded of the excellent Mondai-ji, and the the first episode only cemented those feelings. Not only because we have a couple of kids whisked away from Earth and transported to some fantasy world, but because in each of these brouth they are brought there to help a nation by competing in a series of strange and wonderful games.

An immediately noticeable difference lies in the presentation, with NGNL taking on a very strange, neon art style when compared to Mondai-ji’s more familiar style. But I think the main difference lies in the lack of superpowers in NGNL, with it instead choosing to ban fighting completely and opt to focus more on the strategy of the games.

In spite of that I’d say these two shows are the closest matches for each other, and fans of one should definitely check the other out.

ZetsubouKaiji ZetsubouKaiji says...

These are both series where a group of alienated teens are transported to a new world where they are treated like supermen due to their abilities at playing games. In both series games and gambles of all types are a part of the political system so being smart and savvy game players make the main characters stand out in their new surrounding. 

No Game No life has faster pacing than Mondai-ji, but both series mix in a lot of comedy and a little ecchi with their plots. Both series focus on winning and losing games and how the main characters always manage to pull of a win when the chips are down. If you liked one of these series then you will undoubtly like the other. 

closetanimefan closetanimefan says...

 They are both about people thrown into a world were games are everything, and instead of going home they use their awesome skills to help the underdogs of the world. If you don't like one of these anime after having liked the other, I will be extremly shocked. 

leaveinpeace leaveinpeace says...

If you enjoy one you will enjoy the other. They are similar in rules of the world and lore and both have an over powered protaganist fighting against the world. Also bother are brought to the world by gods.

Azukano Azukano says...

Both shows have similar art style. But the main reason why they are very much similar, is how the main characters are tired of their world and are transported to another one special to them by a god or another being. They both involve the main characters helping an underdog group that has been conquered by those around them. With their special skills they are able to bet in anything they want through a series of games and challenges. If you like one, you are sure to love the other.

Chitaka Chitaka says...

Both of these anime are the 'Person in a Strange World' type where people play varying games with high stakes. In Problem Children they play games to help their guild/clan restore its former rank and in No Game No Life Sora and Shiro play games to return humanity to it's former glory. Stakes are set prior to the game start and are governed by mandated rules of the world making them actually fairly suspenseful in both. No Game No Life has more comedy though and they both have a fair bit of ecchi.

JackP JackP says...

Both of these anime involve people from different worlds being summoned to fight in a fantasy world. The only way fighting is allowed is if it is through games. Biggest difference is that the main characters in Problem Children have powers while the main duo in NGNL do not have actual powers (just amazing gaming skills).

Toshiro999 Toshiro999 says...

NGNL main characters use there intelligence to win the challenge where as Problem Children uses there gifts and intelligence to overcome the matches, Both are very exciting to watch and both have OP main Character's 

Vaxivop Vaxivop says...

They both have the same premise: "Special" peolple get's teleported into another world they really like and their powers are very beneficial in that world. All conflicts are resolved by games too. Very similar and both very good. 

zetazach zetazach says...

Both anime are about young adults who are thrown into a world where everything is decided with games. Also, both anime force the protagonists to side with the underdog and and assist them with reclaiming their pride.

nekonyan nekonyan says...

Both deal with winning games and they have a similar vibe to them.  The humor is also pretty similar to each of them and there is a bit of pervertedness to them.

WonderBoom WonderBoom says...

Both basically have the same premise, WIN GAMES AND WIN AT LIFE, A LIFE YOU GOT TELEPORTED TO WHETHER YOU LIKED IT OR NOT! And the characters are obviously good so they win at life. They have their differences but in the exterior and premise, they are the same deal.

JtkBasketball JtkBasketball says...

Fantasy characters, magical abilities, and political issues are prevelant in both of these animes. All disputes in either one of these amazing magical worlds is settled via games. Problem Children's games tend to have fighting in them, while No Game No Life's games never involve fighting. Both of these are very enjoyable animes because of the game concept and the unique world that they live in. Economic structure and social status are prevalent in both of these worlds.

Reoyu Reoyu says...

Both of these Anime are 'person in a strange world' and both of the main characters was bored of their world.

Seancoco Seancoco says...

Watching one will immediately remind you of the other, the concepts are identical but are portrayed differently in both story and artistically. I guarantee that if you enjoyed one you will enjoy the other.

MrMeNr1 MrMeNr1 says...

Characters : Both main characters are just 100% bad-ass.

Game-World : Both anime are situated in another world where they can use their powers/knowledge to their fullest.

And I'd like to add that in my opinion both anime have a pretty fun storyline.

zenkyrui22 zenkyrui22 says...

they live up to its title itself.. both anime protagonist were problematic children that wants a place they can prove themselves.

enoyed watching both but hope this 2 anime continues especially the problem children are coming from anotjher world who ended suddenly =/

jiropracter jiropracter says...

Both of these anime are about playing games to gain power in another world. No game no life is more humorous while PCACFAW is more serious.

kgg1290 kgg1290 says...

The main characters are earth children that do not get along with society and that are teleported to a world where everything is decided through games. With the protagonists being at major disadvantages, they set out to conquer their new world.

ChadKumada ChadKumada says...

They both have EXTREMELY TALENTED kids cross over to a new world where everything is determined by games.

SugarTitSenpai SugarTitSenpai says...

The two are similar in the game worlds but have very different approaches. Problem children is about physical strength, NGNL is about Intelligence.

Stimps3 Stimps3 says...

Both set in a game type world, both are exceptionally strong characters (considered OP). Both main characters seek something new which in turn brings them to their respective world which are both considered "game-worlds" where the concept of the world which they've been brought to is to complete games in order to progress in some way another (Problem Children- To better there so called "guild" // No Game No Life - to reach the "boss")

XxxOctoberxxX123 XxxOctoberxxX123 says...

For me "No Game No Life" was a better, it gave everything that "Problem Children Are Coming From Another World, Aren't They?" was missing. I still liked both.

DepravedFurball DepravedFurball says...

No Game No Life and Problem Children both have similar premises, but that's about where the comparables end.  NGNL has a little less comedic satire, but the depth of the episodes makes up for that one small detriment.

kuroyuki96 kuroyuki96 says...

they are both about overpowered characters who thinks their world sucks  getting pulled to another world to play games

ConCon19 ConCon19 says...

Overpowered characters each going to a new mystical world. Stories are pretty adventurous and art style is very cool and entertaining. Both these anime are a great watch.

CreativeGirl333 CreativeGirl333 says...

It's about games and both of the animes and also similar in charcters too. The setting is in another "world" and both have guilds and gods as well. :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) ;) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

mmacadet100 mmacadet100 says...

i liked both so i agree................................................................................................................................................................................

Ayachan19 Ayachan19 says...

They were both about games, and this other world that's actually full of game things. And also by meeting that one god or guider of the worlds.

Basically games , both have a little ecchi, both amazing they have that one badass cool guys that's rly hot, and smart, with a harem.

rizza99 rizza99 says...

evrything is about games and in both anime are fun to watch                                                                                                                                                                                               

ExplosiveWombat ExplosiveWombat says...

The two both feature a duo/trio that travel from their home world(s) to a new one in order to participate in what seem to be games. The difference between the two is the manner in which these games are carried out. Both very good series, would definitely recommend both.

redstormer redstormer says...

When I first saw No Game No Life, I was instantly reminded of Mondai-Ji-tachi

The whole setting is very similar, but I think that Mondai-Ji may have more comedy in it. Either way if you liked one of these, you will most definetly like the other.

LeigieS LeigieS says...

Both have talented main characters who don't fit in with their own worlds and are whisked away to a new world where everything is decided by games. The main characters of both shows decide to help a group (a no name community in the case of Mondai-Ji-tachi and humanity in thecase of No Game No Life). The settings are similar, with special game stages, though NGNL is slightly more on the strategy side.

Rastamepas Rastamepas says...

Shows are very similiar for multiple reasons. Both send modern age teenagers and send them to a fantasy world that involve games as a way of life. Both offer comedy and ecchi moreso in No Game No Life. If you enjoyed one there is no doubt you'll enjoy the other 

lego290 lego290 says...

These are both about people being brought into another world where all conflict is solved through games.

Youppi Youppi says...

Now, Both of these anime's take place in a Odd world, that are settled on games and gambling. Now if you're coming here from No Game No Life you may be dissapointed, they're are both great animes that are alike. But not same in value.

arkas1994 arkas1994 says...

Both animes are about children that they feel the dont belong to their world and brought to another where everything is decided by games

Riruri Riruri says...

Both anime revolve around games. Games are the ways of negotiating in each world. The main characters also go to new worlds because they are bored with their current worlds so they are very similar anime.

saadebady saadebady says...

It's a good Anime.and they are both about another fantasy world that is diffrent with the real life.

the Fights winner decided by games.

LadyPsychic LadyPsychic says...

Both anime are about teens who are transported into another world where things are resolved by games.  The main characters of both series are OP, albiet in different ways.  The main characters of Problem Children have superpowers while the main characters of NGNL have to reley on their wits and gaming skills.  Both series have a nice mix of action, comedy, and fanservice.  If you like one, you'll probably enjoy the other.

MarasM3 MarasM3 says...

Both land's issues are decided by games and both have main characters that have more power than they could possibly need.

kotaku01 kotaku01 says...

The similarity of both animes are so close. I could say that they have exactly the same plot, but being different. I really loved both.

LilyNoel LilyNoel says...

both have the similar premise of two or more people being suddenly sucked into a completely different world, both of these worlds center heavily on games, and the main characters of these shows tend to excel in their new environments. The main difference between these shows is that the main characters of "Problem Children are Coming from Another World, Aren't They?" are three psychics from different times and/or universes, meanwhile the main characters of "No Game No Life" are a pair of siblings who just happen to be exceptionally gifted at completeing and dominating in games as a team.

tennis101101 tennis101101 says...

If you liked either of these animes that you might like the other one becauset they are both about people who are summoned to other worlds to play games. Also you might like the other one beacuse some of the characters almost have the same personality type and how smart some of the main characters is similar in both animes.

FullmetalDragon FullmetalDragon says...

Please just accept your fate, if you like one you'll definitely like the other. If 50+ views aren't enough to persuade you then I don't know what will.

STARISH7 STARISH7 says...

I agree because i've watched both and they both involve magic like characters

DeltaNova DeltaNova says...

The humor in both is brilliant. Both have amazing characters, stories aswell as each of them having a long-term goal to achieve whilst providing great action, halrity and keeping you entertained at all times

Yarrcad Yarrcad says...

Very alike. Main charachters are transported to another world that revolves around games. Main charachters must then help a group of people move up in the world by winning games. Not much left to say, same formula, both have lovable charachters, and both only have 10-12 episodes.

Stormbrook Stormbrook says...

This is actually pretty real. There's a astounding resemblance between the two series. Both series deal with worlds about competition.

YukinaZero YukinaZero says...

I watched the frist episode and immediately thought of this anime. The art style is the same and in both anime the main characters go to a different wrold and don't try to go back which i love. Also both anime have a lot of hype and action and there were some moments in both anime the i almost died laughing. Over all i think anyone that likes one anime will also like the other i mean they are both so awesome.

Miyuki222 Miyuki222 says...

I thought both were really awesome! Both anime have to do with something otherworldly and games! I recommend this to anyone who likes game-related anime

SaiyanSalamander SaiyanSalamander says...

They're both pretty similar and are amazing watches :D I'd definatly reccomend you watch both of them :) 

gintama gintama says...

Both the anime have striking resemblance. Protagonist brought from another world to a world where people want their help.

TristeFatum TristeFatum says...

Both involve characters that get taken to a new world ruled by games, however "games" can take on a lot of different meanings in Problem Children. These Characters are overpowered in the new world they have been put into and quickly take control. If I were to say which one is the better one I would have to say it is NGNL. It has many more funny moments and the world they are living is seems way smaller in comparison, making it easier to suck the veiwer in.

Qlazef Qlazef says...

If you liked Problem Children you will probably like No Game No Life and viceversa.

No Game No Life is a great ecchi show and it really nails the "protagonist(s) get sent to an RPG world" theme. It has a lot more fan-service and ecchi than Problem Children but aside from that they are both really good and similar. There is a sibling semi-romantic relationship in No Game No Life so some people might not like that.

Problem children has a simpler plot, but it also has a greater variety in its characters so that the character is not always vastly superior to whatever obstacle they have.

In all, give the other one a chance, I think you'll like it.

LockwoodJester LockwoodJester says...

Both 'Mondaiji Tachi ga Isekai Kara Kuru Sou Desu yo?' and 'No Game No Life' follow the idea of somewhat overpowered main characters who are bored with their lives and end up in another world where they play games. In both animes, these 'games' are taken to another level in terms of intensity, complexity and scale. Plus, both have really good openings. After watching 'Mondaiji...' first, I found that 'No Game No Life' was even better. I don't know if 'epic' or 'intense' are the right words to describe this. To sum it up, even if the stories are different 'No Game No Life' takes some of the best aspects it shares with 'Mondaiji...' and takes it a step further in many ways such as the games being more complex and elaborate as well as more though out. In addition, I'd like to add that 'No Game No Life' is in fact intended for a slightly older audience. All in all, if you've really like 'Mondaiji Tachi ga Isekai Kara Kuru Sou Desu yo?' then I highly recommend watching 'No Game No Life' afterwards.

BloggerQ BloggerQ says...

Both anime have a similar story of humans in our world who have become bored, are transported to another world. This other world revolves around gaming. Neither anime tells a complete tale; if you wished one had contined you'll likely wish the other one had as well. Both are inspiring yet amusing.

OtakuRevolution OtakuRevolution says...

Both Problem Children and No Game No Life are set in a fantasy world parallel to ours. Both anime contain unforgettably OP characters that will make you fall in love with the anime over and over with their tactics or skills. As a picky otaku who has watched much anime, these surely are in my top 10.

pokemonarbok1 pokemonarbok1 says...

Both are animes where the main characters get trapped in a game world. They have to adapt and play well if they want to get out.

Epimondas Epimondas says...

No Game No Life, Dog Days, and Problem Children are all nearly the same anime.  They all have the exact same premise about one or more persons mysteriously transported to another world where game play resolves almost all issues.  These travelers are all excellent ringers for whatever side either called them or they join soon after arriving.  Nearly no one in the new world can cope with the unorthodox  yet brilliant or powerful methods the transported players use in the games.  They all quickly become the star players of their factions and win back lost prestige and/or property and/or territory previously lost by members or former members before the transported ones arrived.  The games are all fun and used to resolve all things such as conflict yet there is never any actual danger of harm to anyone from the world they go to nor to the ones who were transported there.

holycraploveanime holycraploveanime says...

Both awesome animes!!! Same relative idea but extremely different ways of showing it. They're both amazing and wotrth watching.

toshir9117 toshir9117 says...

The Anime No Game No Life And Problem Children Are Coming From Another World, Aren't They (Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai Kara Kuru Sō Desu yo?) Are Both Fun Watching...

Nimni Nimni says...

Both have a very similar concept which makes both very interesting because the story line goes different ways

bobbi bobbi says...

The 2 worlds have very similar concepts - the participants of a game/duel agree on a wager and a game. In both of the anime, young people are 'invited' to another world, where their abilities are put to the test. In both series, the protagonists find themselves somewhat bored with their current life / world, and look at their new world with excitement.

I found No Game No Life to be more heavily focused and strategy and mind-games - and also actual game-theory, which makes it very interesting - especially because it is actually correct. If this is something you're interested in, no game no life will definitely not let you down. Mondai-ji does not leave the entire aspect of strategy etc. behind, but it is at a lower level than in the other.

If you like games, you'll most likely enjoy both of these. Also, if you liked one of them, you'll definitely like the other one too.

jackyufr jackyufr says...

in both animes, it features a group or a few people get teleportrd/sucked in to another world. and soonm after they get there, they learn about the world and basically dominate it. whjile prob child had super powers, no game no life is an anime where the main characters are powerless yet outsmart enemies and control everyone using there prodigious brain work stuff

MyBoiLuffy MyBoiLuffy says...

No Game No Life and Problem Children Are Coming From Another World, Aren't They? are very similer to eachother if you like one than you will like the other.

BlizzardRed BlizzardRed says...

I First saw No Game No Life and as I am now waiting for the next season (hopefully we'll hear about it soon!). I was looking for another anime that I could watch in the same category. Problem Children Are Coming From Another World, Aren't They? Was that one for me! I'm glad I watched it though sad it only had one season but if you haven't I hope you will especially if you're waiting for No Game No Life next season!

JaeckAnaquth JaeckAnaquth says...

Both are based on games and both try to enjoy this new world without thinking about how to go back instead try to have fun in the new world and how they can have more fun both are light hearted only differences is the number of MCs

Crua9 Crua9 says...

To be honest, I at first thought this show copied No Game No Life. But it turns out this is older. 

NGNL is more than less like this, but the story and characters is fleshed out a good bit more. It also is a little perverted, but they also have a ton more funny moments and poke at it 

Rinyuu Rinyuu says...

Yeah, these two series feel pretty similar. 

Both have the same kind of world and set-up, and though there obviously are some differences, if you liked one, you will like the other. Do expect some fanservice though.

HKBattosai HKBattosai says...

If you liked Problem Children Are Coming From Another World, Aren't They? or No Game No Life, then you'd like the other one as well. Both feature isekai, overpowered main characters that must play high stakes games in order to accomplish or achieve anything in the strange worlds they find themselves in.

Anim8me Anim8me says...

The stories are extremely similar and follow the same plot goals. The art work of No Game No Life is much more vibrant than Problem Children Are Coming From Another World and has much more wit involved in place of overwhelming power but it is an amazing watch that Id recommend to anyone.

SirKades SirKades says...

High stake games, little perverted, pretty soild charaters to get behind with some logical thinking behind choices. Overpowered people sure but it still offers a twist to guess how powerful someone is.

sethsign sethsign says...

 No Game No Life nunggu season selanjutnya gak muncul-muncul... kapan ini keluarnya? lama banget, tahunan kali ya... sampek lupa season pertamanya... huhu....

Mistfall Mistfall says...

Both series are about children from our world getting to another where problems are solved through games - which is exactly what they are looking for.The main difference is that Problem children have more OP main characters and No game is making often fun of main protagonist being very strong in one area and totally useless in other -  in other areas the shows are very similar.

Izanne Izanne says...

They both focus on kids who were bored with their world and life as no one was a challenge and nothing interesting happened, until they are taken to a new world which suits them a lot more. In No game No life sora and Shiro are too smart and can think many moves ahead and in Problem children they are powerful.

Josle Josle says...

In both animes some people are getting teleported to another world, and is playing different games with their gifts. 

Natsu9999 Natsu9999 says...

Both anime are about a bunch of kids being transported to another world. Where they do revolutionary things.

GrimScytheLord GrimScytheLord says...

Because it has a similsr stotry and in both anime mc is op. It has a nice comedic vibe to it and both are isekai and gives us a anime which is worth watching

ehmanimelover ehmanimelover says...

Both main characters are too strong for their world and go to a new one where they live better. They become overpowered. 

Dog Days

Dog Days

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.

Reasons you might like Dog Days...

Karasune Karasune says...

Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou Desu yo? is more serious and less fluffy than Dog Days, but they both include characters being called to a fantasy-like world by a female with animal qualities. The summoned "heroes" are then asked to aid the summoner with protecting their community (Mondaiji-tachi) or their country (Dog Days). In order to do this, the heroes must fight in a non-traditional way; through games/competitions. 

Chitaka Chitaka says...

The feel and art style of these two anime are almost identical. Very bright colors, pretty art, animal-human-crossbreed characters and different groups "fighting" against each other via magical games. Both are fairly light-hearted and a bit silly, however Problem Children is DEFINITELY the more serious of the two. Fans of one of these will almost definitely find the same enjoyment in the other.

zetazach zetazach says...

Both animes are about the protagonist(s) being thrown into a mysterious world to help out what would be called a kingdom. In Dog Days, the protagonist, who is physically fit, helps out the kingdom with comedy involved, while in Mondai-Ji, the male protagonist and two female protagonists, who have certain powers, help out the kingdom using epic, action-packed warfare!

Brad Brad says...

While Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou Desu yo? is noticeably more serious for the most part, both anime feature a cast who are taken to a strange fantasy style world by a female with animal characteristics. These characters are then asked to do battle in a series of high stakes games at the request of the female summoner.

Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou Desu yo? is also funnier, and has more than a few nods to mythology. But the concept is much the same in both.

Epimondas Epimondas says...

Both shows have a similar setting. A strange, game like world where many fantasy races live in harmony. In both shows, there are funcional groups of people that work together to gain power.

Based on a story, these shows aren't that similar but judging from the setting and the environment, these two shows have a similar vibe.

Ussel Ussel says...

The world of this two is preatty similar. We've got a leader girl Hestia(in Is it wrong...) and Usagi(in Problem Children). There mine characters in both of these are poor but with their new skills (Is it wrong...) or new friends (Problem Children) they can quickly help it. Also we've got perfect comedy and ecchi momens in both of these.

Anicritic Anicritic says...

This anime, though seemingly similar at first, is anything but. Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon is a very fast paced anime, with a quick plot, and quick introduction of characters into the story. In this way it is similar to Problem Children Are Coming From Another World, Aren't They?. However, the protaganist lacks the OP charactersistics of the male protaganist in PCAW, and is closer to the classic hero starts weak arc. This doesn't mean it isn't worth watchinng, though. The classic arc, mixing in its own specific world types and interactions makes this a smash hit. THe busty character interation, and the harem qualities are sure to include some laughs, but the story just seems to strike a cord within the viewers heart, much more so than that of any other anime recently made in this genre. Though not similar in structure, If you enjoy one, then you'll be sure to enjoy the other.

Both of these Anime are about a person(s) in a strange world.  They are very much a must watch.  I very much enjoyed Problem Childrens fights, but personally I think KonoSuba comedy is better. 

YuiYui YuiYui says...

Both follow the story of a group of people in a fantasy based world, both focus on a more comedy based side of living in a strange world. Also the characters can be seen as being quite similar and if you liked the storyline/comedy elements of one then you should look into the other. 

hotspot hotspot says...

Both anime involve characters who are sent to another world, both worlds have game like elements to them. One is more serious than the other, and in Konosuba, the characters are all incredibly weak, while in Problem children... they're all very strong.

It's funny because I watched Konosuba and then Problem children, and I was thinking about something and got the two mixed up! I was like wait, that didn't happen in this show, it happened in the other! XD

Fargo Fargo says...

Both of these series feature flashy action and a main character who's quick on the uptake as well as a harem of girls who fight by their side. These two animes also intertwine themes of fantasy and mythology that accentuate their respective plots. 

Bestanimeserie Bestanimeserie says...

Both shows feature a lot of action and ecchi, and also some fantasy, they both have a cast of people with supernatural powers, they also have the same plot setting.

Both animes have a main character that is super powerful, arrogant, smart, and  was summoned to another world for one reason or another. Both animes have some form of fanservice... Hagure yuusha is ecchi very heavy.. Problem Children is more toned down and acceptable.. But if you like one your pretty much guarenteed to like the other

Fargo Fargo says...

Both animes feature super-strong and talented protagonists that have their lives changed after visiting another world versed in magic and fantasy. The action is similar between both, though Estetica is a lot heavier with ecchi elements.

Each series features OP, nonchalant main character. Which is the only reason so I won't add another one.

JennyTheNerd JennyTheNerd says...

The main protagonist from both anime is overpoweringly strong and nonchalant. They both seek excitement since the world is too boring for them. Thay fight a lot with ease and builds up the story well. You'll like the other if you like one.

I don't know why I couldn't see this anime in the recommendation list.

anyways, if you like Cautious hero then you will love "Problem Children Are Coming From Another World" 

Similarities: 

Both MC are overpower, Cool, and badass

Both animes have that stupid person who supports the MC , Black Rabbit in PCACFAW and Ristarte in Cautious hero.

Both animes involve magic users and  fantasy 

rounakrk rounakrk says...

Both involve people with unusal talents suddenly becoming close to the supernatural; both have a similar sense of humor. The animation in general is also similar. The animes generally have the same "keep coming back and I dont know why" value. 

Fairy Tail

Fairy Tail

Lucy is a seventeen-year-old mage with the power to summon stellar spirits, but what she really wants to do is join a guild - and not just any guild.

While in town one day Lucy meets a perpetually-seasick boy named Natsu who, through a series of events, reveals to her that he's none other than the fire-eating mage Salamander of Fairy Tail! Lucy is finally able to join Fairy Tail and quickly begins to take on odd jobs with Natsu and his gang for fame and profit. Along with her fiery friend, Happy the flying cat, Natsu's archrival Gray and their overseer the invincible and beautiful Erza, Lucy sets forth for epic adventures that leave an epic amount of destruction in their wake.

Chitaka Chitaka says...

Both of these anime involve an organized group of people with magical powers of some kind (communities in Problem Children and guilds in Fairy Tail) competing against other groups. Thanks to the colorful casts of characters, varied powers and comradare between guild/community members fans of one will probably find some enjoyment in the other, despite the huge disparity in series lengths.
