Sword Art Online

Sword Art Online

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...

You guessed it, this show is like a slightly more kiddy version of Sword Art Online.  Re’union even uses the very same Nerv video game console gear from SWO, though I have seen any console brand name yet.  Both stories start with real life death occurring while playing a video game.  Both lead characters look similar; have similar hairstyle; and are sword fighters.  Not seeing much originality or series separation here.  Asahi’s the new Yuui, aka, the ghost ai without a body that Kirito symbolically adopts.  It isn’t as compelling as the original but it already is lowering the lone wolf vibe found in SWO, so at least one aspect did get improved.

Both series follow a similar theme. Both are based around an online game where a death has occured in reality. The main character of both series is a sword fighter who look similar to each other. While the stories seem to be going in different directions there are quite a few similarities between the shows (or at least there are so far).

Re'Union wants to be Sword Art Online so badly. Both are set in a virtual reality fantasy MMO video game, both involve a die-in-the-game-die-in-real-life idea, and hell the male leads act and, to an extent, look very similar. Sword Art Online just pulls the concept off way better.

Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day

Now, ten years later, Meiko has re-appeared as a ghost that only Jinta, the former leader of the gang and an avid shut-in, can see. All she desires is for Jinta to fulfill her final wish so that she can move on to the afterlife, but with no memory of what it was, it’s up to the teenager to gather his former friends and discover what will allow his beloved friend to rest in peace. With so many feelings left unsaid, can this group work out their strife and help the ghost of the girl they once adored?

Both series follow a group of 6 friends (3 boys and 3 girls) that, as children, they spent a lot of time together. It changes when one of the girls died and, then, the group broke up. Some years later, the girl reappears to the main character.

There are many similarities with the characters. The main character feels guilty about the girl's death and he has became a little anti-social. One of the girls has feelings for the main character and she felt jealous of the dead girl when they were children. One of the boys has feelings for the dead girl and he blames the main character of the girl's death. One of the girls has glasses and has feelings for the previous boy.

Conclusion: Shichisei no Subaru = Anohana + SAO

Jayage Jayage says...

These two are pretty much the same anime the charachers are the same, the plots are the same, the love triangle is the same, the only different between the two is Seven Senses of the Re'Union takes place in a video game well Anohano takes place in the real world. Seven Senses of the Re'Union is basically a mix between SAO and Anohano.

Re’union and Brynhildr start with the tragic death of the mc’s female childhood friend which traumatized him for years.  The girl somehow reunites with the mc years later and is constantly pursued by a horde of nameless enemies.  Both are sci-fi based with elements of combat and magic.  Structurally story wise these two are pretty identical.

Years after the fantasy MMORPG known as 'The World' suffered massive system failure, it has returned. Upgraded and re-written, the current incarnation of 'The World' gives players the freedom to find high adventure, embark on quests for treasure, and battle each other in arenas and tournaments. Player-Killers have become commonplace, however, and prey upon those weaker than they. Haseo, a careless player, was saved from such a fate by members of the Twilight Brigade - a guild with a legendary quest. Joining with the Twilight Brigade, they take on "The World" with all of its wonders and dangers. Will they find what they seek, and will Haseo be able to save those that mean the most to him from the unexplainable effects of 'The World'?
