Log Horizon

Log Horizon

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...

These shows share almost identical plots. They're both about a large group of MMO players getting trapped inside of the game. Both shows go into the various social structures built by an MMOs player base and they discuss the different play styles that individuals adapt. 

SAO is a bit different because it takes place in the future and the game was already virtual reality when the players gets stuck whereas in Log Horizon the players were playing on their PCs before being transported to the game world. Other than that one difference the shows share a similar style of storytelling as the players try to make sense of their situation all while fighting against the game world.

In both anime there´re MMORPG players who discover themselves trapped in a fantsy game and they can`t "log out"

SirMarkus SirMarkus says

They both have the same setting: people finding themselfs stuck in a online world. Trying to find a way out and survive.Where Sword Art Online doesnt have magic, Log Horizon does have magic skils.In the world of Log Horizon people do not always look just how they do IRL.If you like one, you are sure too like the other.

Sword Art Online and Accel World are both anime adaptations of two light novel series written by the same author, Reki Kawahara. Both are set in the future where virtual reality combined with gaming technology are present, and are even set in the same world, with Sword Art Online taking place in 2022 and Accel World in 2046. Both series explore the exploration of the virtual world in which both of the main characters are suddenly plunged into a VRMMO while fighting in the game for something much more than just entertainment. Sword Art Online takes a more dramatic and mature approach while keeping the idea of these new VRMMOs in skepticism while players are fighting for their lives, while Accel World is arguably more playful and where VRMMOs are much more accepted and players now fight for the power and ability to "accelerate" in real time.

Sakux Sakux says

They are basically the same, animes based on characters playing online virtual games.

The difference is that in Accel World the characters want to be forever in the game and also want to know the creator of the game  and his/her purpose with the game.

In Sword Art Online, the creator and his purpose is known in the first episode, and the characters want to get out of the game.

Also in the two titlles the male main characters are lonely people that change their way of life because the apparition of a girl.

zerak zerak says

they are both the same consept in a way they are both about a game were you are the player almost phiscly and you have to clear the game  adding that they are by the same writer  

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?

Is It Wrong to Try and Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? is set in the world of Orario, where adventurers band together and look for treasures in an underground labyrinth known as Dungeon. However, for Bell Cranel, fame and riches are secondary to what he wants to find the most: girls. He soon finds out though, that anything can happen in Dungeon, and winds up...

The series have the adventure, dungeons (floors), love story and more in common. Both anime series are set in a non-realistic world and I recommend to watch both of them if you love game or role-play styled anime series.

AnimeEmma99 AnimeEmma99 says

The two have a very similar atmosphere to it and the protag's need to get stronger. The colors used along with the art style is very similar and I personally loved SAO and Is it wrong to try to pick up girls in a dungeon. Im sure you will too.

AngelBeatsYui AngelBeatsYui says

So another first impressions recommendation, so to start off both have a RPG feel. In SAO they are trapped in a game and most of the arcs following are about RPG games. Then DanMachi has a very RPG feel, like the dungeon and levelling up, in a way the joining up with a goddess is like joining a guild. Also there is action and the mc wants to get stronger from the start, and so I think if you enjoy one then you should enjoy the other.
