If you're looking for anime similar to Recovery of an MMO Junkie, you might like these titles.
Narumi Momose has had it rough: every boyfriend she’s had dumped her once they found out she was an otaku, so she’s gone to great lengths to hide it. When a chance meeting at her new job with childhood friend, fellow otaku, and now coworker Hirotaka Nifuji almost gets her secret outed at work, she comes up with a plan to make sure he never speaks up. But he comes up with a counter-proposal: why doesn’t she just date him instead? In love, there are no save points.
Both of them are harmless romcoms about two gamer nerds and the love that sprouts between them.
Both Wotakoi and MMO are about a central couple who are both Otaku and about their relationship, as well as have a good supporting cast. They're both pretty good comedically and have some romantic drama. Both are good if you like Otaku culture and Romance.
Both are slow romace anime that are based around socially awkward people. It also has elements of the gaming culture in it.
Both have a similar feel, in a sense. They revolve around romance between otaku, and feature characters that can sometimes be awkward (in a funny sort of way). They do focus on different stages in the relationship, and therefore go in different directions, but both are of a similar comedic style overall.
I watched Recovery of an MMO Junkie before Wotakoi and I liked both of them.
The story of two are totally differente but you can enjoy in both of them if you like this kind of anime.I don't want to give any spoilers but the only connection these two have is that they are about game.Wotakoi is about an otaku and gamer dating and Recovery of an MMO Junkie is about two people meeting in real life and in game at the same time.Both of them are really easy and fluffy watch I really reccomend them now to relax and just enjoy in anime.
Both have otaku love stories, with very similar feel for a similar age range (young office workers)
Both shows are about grown-ups that are anime/game-otaku and often play MMORPGs together. Also, the characters in both anime are awkward when it comes to romance.
Both have similar themes, both have adult-romances, and both are based on otaku culture. The characters in Wotakoi and Recovery of an MMO Junkie are fantastic and loveable. The humour/comedy aspect is golden too, I laughed out loud plenty of times. These 2 are both favourites of mine so I highly recommend both!
Its not your typical high school love story, but more mature comedy where the characters are adults. And characters is interested in the culture of gaming/anime etc. Its fun to watch someone with the same hobby as yourself. Perhaps you can relate. Its a cozy romantic comedy in everyday life.
In both animes, both male and female leads are otakus and have a hard time fitting in from this. The times they spend together while not playing a game, they can sometimes end up being seen as acting akward about everything and overthinging everything they do, thus adding a comedic effect to their relationships. As time moves, so do their relationship, on top of that it gets even better since they develope feelings for one another. The male leads are the ones that try to make any move but get really embarassed when they do. Overall, they have similar characters, also both animes have similar relationship progression with the male and female leads.
If you liked either of these cute romantic comedies about adult otaku, definitely check out the other. There's a lot of similar themes and situations that revolve around budding romance between shy people, games vs. real life, and having a job but also being an otaku.
Both are about some wholesome nerd love.Recovery of an MMO Junkie is more about the journey to a fateful love (and is better IMO), parts of it take place in a game world so you get som fantasy.Love is Hard for Otaku tells the story of an otaku couple who work in the same office and their relationship growth as they partake in the traditional Otaku activities. (It may not be quite as good, but is still entertaining, and full of references).
I’ve been reading the mangas not watching the animes but they are both romance and if you like that then go for it. Also the latter has cross dressing with in MMORPG gender switch i guess and the other is otakus I recommend both they are both good reads and are adorable but I haven’t gotten far in the RMMOJ one so tell me if either are good anime because I love them as the manga.
1. Adult romance
2. Main characters are Otaku
3. No love triangle
4. Main characters known each other in the past ( kind of ) and reunited after several years later
Both of the anime are about two otakus falling in love. MMO Junkie as the title suggests is just about gaming culture, Wotakoi is a whole otaku package. In both anime the main characters are quite dorky and pure. The stories are lighthearded and cute.
Both are fun romantic comedies about otakus and the unique ways they develop and show affection. Both series do good justice not just to otaku, but to healthy, balanced relationships as well.
both adult couples, mixing elements of the otaku culture with adult life. the difference lies in the fact that wotakoi has more of a multi-character dynamic than MMO junkie, kind of like friends, but otakus, and MMO junkie is more focused on one main character. Also, MMO deals with burn out syndrome and depression and the healing effect online gaming and its community have.
Both of these involve working adults, who also have a love for their needy hobbies! Super relatable for all the anime fans who are also working adults. Super wholesome and has great comedic moments.
both are about socially awkward grownup otakus who meet by chance encounter and end up falling in love with each other. similar character designs /personalities and vibes.
After Hideki Nishimura confesses to a girl online, he is shocked when she turns out to be a boy. Traumatized, he swears to never trust any "girl" players. That is, until one confesses to him! Ako Tamaki is a beautiful loner who has trouble differentiating between what's reality and the online world she spends so much of her time in. Can Hideki and his guild friends help fix socially inept Ako?
Both includes a female antisocial character and misfit to the real society, she is trapped in an addition to MMORPG.There she makes new friendships that help her to open up a little more to the world.
Both series include female gamers playing as guys on MMORPGs, how gaming effects them and the gamers' lives, and the friends they make through it.
What can I say, if you've check out both of these anime then you'll immediately realize that MMO Junkie And You Thought There Is Never A Girl Online are two sides of the same coin. The way that both anime are laid out you could even say that MMO Junkie is just the more mature version of the two. Unlikely meeting of players who hang out online coming together in real life, female main characters combating with real life romance, mmo tropes and gags, these are all things you'll find in both anime.
The shows basically are the same in every way other than characters. One is pretty mediocre and the other is pretty alright. Both shows are enjoyable, however one I belive had a satisfying ending while the other is a little dissapointing.
Both about socially awkward hermits who slowly gain confidence through the friends they make while online gaming.
Adventure in online gaming, romantic touch between both the protagonists and a funny way to start the series. Also, cute girls!
Beside what everyone else already said about that both have the same basis of female mc addicted to MMO, I feel that the female character, Ako, from Netoge is pretty much the more severe case of Mori Mori from Netjuu. Not that either of the series are connected but Netjuu is pretty a much a sequel to Netoge where the story is repeating itself when Ako is 3.
If you liked Recovery of an MMO Junkie or And you thought there is never a girl online?, then you'd probably like the other because both contain relationships with characters in the MMORPG world and in real life. MMO Junkie is a little more of a mature romance between adults, toherwise, these series have a great amount of similarities. Ako and Morioka are both female leading ladies who would rather video game than face the real world.
Arata Kaizaki (27) quit the job he landed after graduation in only three months. His life did not go well after that. Now his parents are threatening to stop sending money, and want him to come back to the country. He has no friend or girlfriend to share his troubles with...as he hits rock bottom a strange man named Ryo Yoake appears. Yoake invites Kaizaki to join a societal rehabilitation program for NEETs called ReLife. This program uses a mysterious drug to make him look younger, and sends him back to high school for a year...
This might be a stretch if you are browsing for alike/clone anime through the recommendations. But hear me out, the connection between the two anime is the story, or rather the struggle to overcome, the barriers for the relationship between the main characters because of the system/medium they are interacting. In case of Relife, it is because both mc have to contractually hide who they are. In case of Netjuu, the MCs develop feelings in an MMO. In both anime, one of the MCs realize through a "mature connect the dots process" that they don't have to be bound by their situation to have IRL relationship with their SO. Again, this might be an overthinking, but since both anime are just 1 season long, one can definetly satisfy the need for more of the other.
both MCs didn't know eachother at first but at the end they realized they have been together all the time
Both are super romancy series that have pretty well written characters. Definitely watch either if you're looking for a good romance.
Both are anime about working adults fail in their work and life but successfully walk out from their failure.
Both of these titles are about NEETs and wanting something a little more from life. ReLife is bit more serious, but both are comedic and heartwarming.
Akane Kinoshita, a female college student, faces the absolute worst situation when she ends up breaking up with her boyfriend after he has an affair with a woman he met playing an online game. While relieving her stress by rampaging through the open hunting grounds of an online game, Akane spills everything about her heartbreak to “Yamada”, a player she met by chance who happens to be in the same guild. “I don't care,” is his curt reply. But when Akane gets a makeover and joins an offline event to get back at her ex-boyfriend, she hears those dreadful words again. And that was Akane's fateful encounter with “Yamada”─！
Both are about falling in love with someone met inside an online game.
Recovery is sweet and slow and has a small gender reversal element (both main leads use gender-opposite avatars inside the game)...
Yamada starts with the main female lead suffering from the end of her relationship with the guy that got her into online gaming in the first place...
Both are almost the same, the MCs fell in love to the person they met in an online game. In mmo junkie, the girl mc is more of a neet and introvert side, they fell in love as they get close and being dependent-telling problems with each other While in yamada kun, the boy mc is the classic male lead that is somewhat cold yet so warm. Fell in love bec of many interactions in real life
Enjoy romance? Do you like gaming? Then how about both?
Both these anime have a couple who end up meeting in a game and happen to bump into each other in real life, and from there, their romance begins. Both are sweet series that I enjoyed for the idea of opening up and falling in love with someone. If you liked it, please check the other one out.
The stories are similar:
In both theres is romance between two people who meet online through mmo games.
There is not much game action like SAO, it mostly focuses on the romance that occurs outside the game & their everyday lives.
MC FL Character Similarities:
In both the FLs are older than the MLs (age gap), and the FLs receive assistance from the MLs to get better in the game.
MC FL Character Differences:
The FL in the Recovery of an MMO Junkie is an introvert and is slow to show & develop feelings for the ML. She struggles to dress up when going in dates.
The FL in My Love Story with Yamada-Kun is extroverted and quick to fall in love with Yamada (unlike the ML Yamada). She dresses nicely in dates.
Unlike in My Love Story, the characters in the MMO Junkie blink a bit more. Either way, both seem pretty stiff on the eyes.
Furthermore, in the MMO Junkie the characters have unnatural hair colors outside the game, while in Yamada they have natural hair color outside their games. Even so, the art in both are similar to SAO (whenever neither are in chibi form).
Both anime about relationship starts in game world. However, it is mostly about reality life and no action scene on game world. The main character are having age gap and slowly develop love relationship with someone known in game
"Would you like to be with me... in the Gamers Club?" Amano Keita is a perfectly mediocre loner with no particular distinguishing features other than his love for games. One day, his school's prettiest girl and Gamer Club President Tendo Karen suddenly calls out to him. That moment changes Keita's life forever, as he now finds himself in the midst of a romcom with beautiful girl gamers... or, well, that's how it usually goes. Not with him, however.
Both are fun, lighthearted anime implimenting video game culture, and the relationships between the characters involved.
They are both about introverted video-game addicts who are pulled out of their shells. Although one is about an MMORPG player and the other a handheld addict, they are both comedies and SOLs and share a main theme.
There is a cute awkwardness between the leads of the individual shows that blossoms into a romance. Good catch for those who like romance-type animes.
Both shows have characters, who are very much into gaming, and enjoy it a lot. Both, however, do not focus only on the game, but also a romance between the main characters. There's a good amount of references and game-related details, that'll make you smile if you like games. Both main characters of the shows, are introverted and quite self-concious. the 'cast' of Gamers! is a lot younger than that of Recovery of an MMO Junkie, but the theme is much the same.
Chiyo Sakura, a high school girl who fell in love with the unrefined boy schoolmate Umetaro Nozaki, decides to be courageous one day and asks him out. Her feelings weren't conveyed properly, and before she knew it she ends up helping a particular job of his as an assistant... The series is a shojo manga boy comedy which centers around Nozaki, a high school boy that is a popular shojo manga artist, and has a story woven by very individualistic characters.
If you want to watch another funny and feels good show, Nozaki-kun really fits. Aside from the obvious rom-com similarity, in Nozaki-kun the main character also has a passion of his own and his crush then ends up meeting him there. They both have hilarious and awkward situations involving couples and while Nozaki-kun's characters aren't as relatable, it's hard to not love them and their antics
they always make me smile and I love anime about the internet/online games etc! I love the art and the beautiful colors, I watch it whenever I want to relax and it works good.
They´re both comedies that have a little of love involved. I really do recommend you to try and watch one if you liked the other.
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!
Both series feature MMORPGs and the people who play them. There's an element of people playing as the opposite gender in game, but mostly it just involves people interacting with one another within the game.
Log Horizon is one of those shows, where the players suddenly find themself unable to log out of their game. While the same is not true for recovery of an mmo junkie, the main characters do spend a lot of time in the game, and that is also where a lot of the story happens. Both kind of fit into the slice of life category, however Log Horizon has a lot more game-related content. Despite that, both have a certain level of romance. mmo-junkie is a little more focused on this aspect, while Log Horizon has a more comedic / casual approach to it. They're both a good watch, although recovery of an mmo junkie feels a bit more light-weight.
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...
Both shows feature a romance that starts inside a game, and both revolve around the theme of blurring of the lines between real and virtual life. The characters are different ages, and the main problem in the story is totally different in each one, but both are definitely worth a try for fans of the other.
They are both about gaming, MMOs, RPGs, romance and life experiences seen in both of these animes.
During the heyday of the 2D fighting game boom in 1991, sixth-grader Haruo spends practically his entire day at an arcade in the seedy part of town, oblivious to the world around him. However, one day at his usual arcade, he encounters Akira, his female classmate with good grades and money. She may look out of place at the arcade, but she is actually a top-class gamer. Akira completely outmatches Haruo in one Street Fighter II round after another, and their relationship develops from this unlikely encounter.
Both Recovery of an MMo Junkie and Hi Score Girl are rom-coms invloving characters that meet each other through playing video games.
Both anime are about love and the love for games. Both focus on how the characters are drawn closer to each other and chalenge one another through playing video games (old or new) and we get to see them grow and evolve. Will they make new friends or rediscover old ones? You just have to watch and see!

With winter coming, Shiroe and his companions are forced to consider their options. Should they stay in Akihabara and attempt to weather the oncoming storm? Or should they gamble on missions to other portions of the world in search of new sources of valuable treasure?
Log Horizon 1 and 2 also plays around with real world secrets and identities but season two goes even further into it and even explores more of the gender role reversal play as another such character is introduced and many more are implied. Both delve heavily into the gaming world schemantics, culture, terms, lifestyle, identities, and drama.
