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 are isekai with slight videogame-like mechanics. SAO in a literal sense and the faraway paladin in a more DND fantasy-like way.
Sei, a 20-year-old office worker, is whisked away to a whole new world. Unfortunately for Sei, the ritual that summoned her—meant to produce a “Saint” who would banish the dark magic—brought two people over instead of one. And everyone prefers the second girl over Sei?! But this is just fine by Sei, who leaves the royal palace to set up shop making potions and cosmetics with her newfound magic. Business is booming, and this might not be such a bad life, after all…as long as her supposed Sainthood doesn’t come back to haunt her.
Both stories have OP main character, who is often quite unaware of impact they have. The tempo of both is slow as well.
Lonely thirty-seven-year-old Satoru Mikami is stuck in a dead-end job, unhappy with his mundane life, but after dying at the hands of a robber, he awakens to a fresh start in a fantasy realm...as a slime monster! As he acclimates to his goopy new existence, his exploits with the other monsters set off a chain of events that will change his new world forever!
- Both are isekai animes that take place in a fantasy world with rich lore (tho faraway paladin def has a more well thought out mythology), both have mcs that are overpowered, fight monsters, make a big name for themselves and are similar in the regard that rimuru builds up a whole nation and becomes its leader while not a leader of an entire nation, will is becoming a powerful leader quickly as well (from religious leader, now also a knight/paladin, now also a leader with noble type power and connections). Both mcs are also similar in terms of personality, rimuru and will reminded me of one another, as did will's elf friend who is femboy looking just how rimuru is lmao
- Unrelated, but I saw that To Your Eternity and By the Grace of the Gods are similar to Faraway Paladin, so you might want to check those out as well
The god Mauser delivered unto a world of magic a prophecy: if the Scrapped Princess is allowed to live, she will destroy the entire world. But the knight who was to kill her could not end the life of a newborn child, and so she lived. Fifteen years later, her adopted brother and sister have sworn to protect her, and together they travel from town to town, searching for a life she can't have.
Before you disagree with me, hear me out!The plots are not similar, there is no OP MC in Scrapped princess, however, both are fantasy shows with a slow burn with almost no fanservice and a very similar tone. The Faraway Paladin is hardly even an Isekai anyways.
