Goblin Slayer

Rumor has it that, in a certain guild in the middle of nowhere, there is an extraordinary man who has climbed all the way to the Silver rank just by killing goblins. At the same guild, a priestess who's just become a new adventurer has formed her first party... and the man who ends up rescuing that party when they get into trouble is none other than the Goblin Slayer.

Fluffs Fluffs says...

Both of these shows belong to the dark fantasy genre and they deal with some sensitive topics. Goblin Slayer isn't isekai, but it has the "another world" feeling to it 

TitaniumTits TitaniumTits says...

Both are fairly dark stories but we see the evolution of their relationship as the story progresses. Shield hero is an isekai but it feels very similar to the adventuring style of Goblin Slayer. Both also have great fight scenes.

Jaimefm Jaimefm says...

Both anime have dark themes. Shield Hero is an isekai and Goblin Slayer is for more mature audiences, but both have similar adventuring styles. 

checkchu checkchu says...

well both the protogonist are intresting and both has someting new to show 

both are harem both are LIGHT NOVEL ADAPTION

Veenala Veenala says...

Both main charachters don't have a good relationship with people but indifferent ways, however with the help of people around them they start to grow.

The main character in rising of the shield hero/tate no yuusha is outcasted because of something he does not have control of and faces a mental struggle because of it. Whilst the mc in goblin slayer is silent and blunt he has the struggle of getting on with others on a basic level as his sole focus is goblins.

They are both the unknown hero type that gets slowly brought to light.

rollingbones rollingbones says...

Both stories are dark in their essesnse and the protagonist suffers a cruel fate but is systematically overcoming hurdles in order to move forward

AstronViolence AstronViolence says...

The Rising of the Shield Hero and Goblin Slayer, both the mc's want revenge, and they are set in a world of monsters. The 2 MC's both get conpanions on the way and they're both pretty OP.

Grimshtod Grimshtod says...

Both anime feature a quiet closely-guarded protagonist. Both the Shield Hero and the Goblin Slayer struggle with issues of rage and revenge/forgiveness. Good character development.

Large elements of the importance of friendship and teamwork, and the advantages of forming a party. (both for adventuring and for ones-wellbeing). Both anime are dark fantasy featuring graphic fantasy violence. 

Both anime have moments of comic relief but the tone remains dark and serious throughout. 

Both anime should come with a trigger warning for sexual violence. Goblin Slayer especially.

ya I agree if you liked gobin slayer then you will like rising of the shiled hero, and viseversa

dboisvert dboisvert says...

Both anime are based heavily on rpg games. 

The rising of the shield hero is more story driven than combat driven and it is very entertaining thus far (S2).

Goblin Slayer has a slightly darker story, but is based more around the combat and fighting.

ilyesniper20 ilyesniper20 says...

they both have that revenge theme, they both travel with a young girl and train her in the same time

GenXotaku1971 GenXotaku1971 says...

Both are gritty fantasy stories; One is Isekai (Shield Hero) while one is straight fantasy (Goblin Slayer).  Both have misunderstood protagonists who protect the world anyway.  Not for the squeamish as both include plot points revolving around rape and accusations of rape.  Goblin Slayer is an homage to tabletop RPGs whilst Shield Hero mimics the mechanics of an online JRPG where one has to make do with a sub-optimal character class, playing on HARD mode.

Arifureta: From Commonplace to World's Strongest

Hajime Nagumo and his high school class are suddenly summoned to a fantastical land as heroes. But while most of his classmates have powerful stats and abilities, Hajime does not. Underappreciated and unprepared, he tumbles into the depths of a monster-infested dungeon where voracity and sacrifice are his only options. To thrive in this savage world, he’ll have no choice but to welcome the abyss.

TitaniumTits TitaniumTits says...

Some comparisons that can be made between these two would be the evolution of the protagonists from weak to strong. In shield hero this takes longer but none the less, in both instances we see a clear power development. Another simmilarity would be the harem of girls that they collect along the journey. Characters wise they exihbit the same lack of care initially for anything as well as their deep thirst for revenge. This soon changes with the introduction of new teammates that show them that all is not evil. 

Hutai Hutai says...

MC lives in a simple modern world and then gets called into the fantasy world to be a hero and save the day. He gets F***ed over, goes into rage, gets stronger and tries to get revenge. Both MC have their own harem. 

alp2va alp2va says...

Both approach the isekai genre in a unique way by immediately having the main character betrayed and forced to survive on their own. Both main male leads have similar personalities and approaches to their problems. Both also involve a pseudo-harem as the main male lead seems to only attract outcasted females into their parties.

GTOwlnizuka GTOwlnizuka says...

Arifureta seems like a budget version of Shield Hero. They both deal in isekai where the MC is sent to another world, weak, and after being shunned by their peers, finds out they have power. Shield Hero is all around a better anime, but if you enjoyed one, there is a chance you may enjoy the other.

sandbecca sandbecca says...

Have you seen one of this, you must see the other two. two of the best anime made in 2019. i want a second season of both, if not will it be hell to pay hihi. LOVE them both.

MelodyPond MelodyPond says...

Both Storys have a messed up beginning for the heroes. I was so pissed off when I got to the end of Rising of the Shield Hero, not because it sucked or had a crappy ending. It was just that good i left me needing more. Arifureta greats a similar feeling. Both are great shows and when my kids are old enough I would enjoy watching it with them.

mesanator mesanator says...

both are about a MC loser getting summoned to a fantasy world to become a hero but end up being granted a seemingly weak primary power. To add to the humiliation of getting the "weak" power, the MC gets betrayed by someone in his close entourage. Now that the MC has reach the rock bottom and has changed his personality from an otaku to a revenge driven distrusting misantrop, the MC starts a grind journey to become OP. Then, MC frees a caged-up loli who brings back slowly his good nurtured personality.

What else:

  • MC picks up other chics for his harem along the way
  • MC can't let go of old grudges
  • MC is a cold pragmatic asshole 
  • Fantasy world with MMO system

Shampoliny Shampoliny says...

They are both similar, both get betrayed and becomes stronger becouse of that, they also meet new allies which help them during their journey

Madness9236 Madness9236 says...

These two anime are alot alike, from the hero's summoned from another world to how betrayal plays a big part in both the anime itself and in how the characters develop. Both of them are worth the watch.

feedeuspi feedeuspi says...

I totally agree with this recommendation.  If you're looking for a darker / more adult orientend Isekai than the usuals, this is a good one.

XRB XRB says...

It's the same concept of the MC climbing from almost nothing to great power, althoughialthough this one the power rise is exponentially high.

Soulsub Soulsub says...

They both have op characters and they are badass. Both the main characters get bullied at the beginning but that changes eventually.

oskiska oskiska says...

really good anime, i enjoy wathching this anime, it has everything that i was trying to find in anime

Mistfall Mistfall says...

In both animes the main hero is weak at the beginning, but struggles to get most powerful.In both anime main hero disdains majority of people due to initial conflict but is able to grow loyal harem which is there not only for show, but have power of their own.

Fear6996 Fear6996 says...

They are almost the same they both got summoned into another world as a hero and got treated like trash and they both got betrayed and they became op after that almost the same

Nisa118 Nisa118 says...

-both have op mc's

-both are isakei

-both have good story

the cgi on arifrueta is pretty bad but id you cam get past that its a great show. the only other thing i dont like about it is that some of the members of the harem are annoying.

Yain Yain says...

I must admit that I was very surprised with either animes. Let me explain why.First of all, I am the kind of person that has gotten very bored with the "Virtual world" plot that we have been fed massively ever since the initial release of Log Horizon (which is really good let's not deny it) and Sword Art Online (which is quite good plot-wise but overly extended to my mind). I was in a dire need of seeing something different. The Rising of the Shield Hero is an anime that starts in this Virtual World//Parallel World setting which really is a fantasy land and the plot slowly evolues in something that isn't quite what we had expected, in a manner quite similar to That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime. 

What I enjoy is that it isn't your average "aventure", but instead focuses a lot on the Character evolution and both animes explore thoroughly the sides of their characters. 

If you liked either of these, you are sure to enjoy the other one! 

Grizz Grizz says...

If you liked this, then you will probably like this too. As they are both isekai fantasy stories, though one takes a darker turn than the others comedic and cheerful take.

MaxymusPrime MaxymusPrime says...

both are incradible shows period.They are in the same genra but they have a diffenrent take on the Isekai genra. Both well executed and deserve a watch.

sacrimony sacrimony says...

Both feature protagonists that have great power, strategical skills and know how to utilise battle formats for best battle results

nucl3arGzus nucl3arGzus says...

They are both about fantasy video-game worlds. Both have an interesting world, charismatic characters, blood-pumping protagonists. But beware: Slime is an uplifting comedy, while Shield Hero is a little dark.

AKAthe3rd AKAthe3rd says...

If you're a fan of Isekai settings then I would say both That Time I Got Reincarnated and Shield Hero as among the best ones out there. 

Both have:

  • Harem elements
  • Incredibly interesting main characters
  • Ikemen

However, both series are in fact very different. That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime is more light hearted and comedic while The Rising of The Shield Hero explores the main character's hatered and rage. In addition, Rimuru (That Time I Got Reincarnated) begins as an overpowered character, in contrast Naofumi (Shield Hero) struggles to gain power in the begining.

Trust me, you should watch both if you're into isekai.

Both MCs find themselves in different worlds than where they came from.

Both are considered low in rank and status at first, but they surprise everyone each time they overcome a challenge.

Shield Hero is more serious and deep, whereas Slime is more cheerful and light.

jiexi20 jiexi20 says...

Both are isekai anime of a guy going somewhere completely new and making a name for himself and making friends along the way.

AnimePanda27 AnimePanda27 says...

Both animes are great at exploring the theme of isekai, however 'That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime' takes a more comedic approach to the genre while 'The Rising of the Shield Hero' has more of a serious outlook. Both anime are interesting in their own ways.

It has a lot of the same themes though it is much more comedic. The story is similar where  the main protagonist goes to another world and ends up getting slaves. It's actually not bad so don't drop it just because it's an ecchi.

Kakajoju Kakajoju says...

Both anime include a shut-in person that gets transferred into another world. In both of these anime the said person gets cute girl slaves and adventures with them.

niotabunny niotabunny says...

here we have yet another "shut-in otaku" where they get "transported" to another realm where it's different from their own, thus facing all sorts of magical and mystical aspects such as dragons, goblins, and spell casting.

walsellers walsellers says...

Both involve a decent person from Japan being summoned to a word similar to a video game. People in both worlds are surprised at how reliable the summoned person is. Both wind up with girls feeling attached to him.

Decuplets Decuplets says...

Same isekai genre, same "guy gets summoned into another world and now there's pretty ladies everywhere" story. 

Jayage Jayage says...

Both anime are about a guy that goes to another world. In both of these anime the main character gets two cute girl slaves and has adventures with them the different between the two is How not to Summon a Demon lord is more of comedy ecchi anime well The Rising of The Sheld Hero is a Drama.

RascaI RascaI says...

In both Demon Lord and Shield Hero, a character is summoned to another world just like any isekai anime and is seen as somewhat of a villain, the story follows each's ascent into relevance by the rest of the world and their acquiring of a harem of sorts. If you like isekai, these two are for you.

It has a similar story line with a shut in gamer being transported to another world and ending up with two girls by his side,

Another isekai where the main character starts from nothing (or worse) and builds his way up in the world. Similar settings, re:zero goes much more into the misery of it all and has much more interesting adventures. Better animated too, besides background characters in a few places.

Virtual3441 Virtual3441 says...

The Rising of a Shield Hero is transporting to another world with everyone going against you. Re:Zero has that twist where most people like you so it's fun to see the different point of views since some people were not suppose to be summoned to begin with anyways.

Filerist Filerist says...

Both of these animes are about a guy who gets transported to another world. The rising of the shield is a bit more about the gaming aspects of RPG's such as grinding, leveling up and so on. But for Re:Zero it's about a guy who get's transported to another world and when he dies he is revived at the last checkpoint. If you like one the other shouldn't be very far off.

xanderpies88 xanderpies88 says...

Very similer and same genre. both have darker moments. one is betrayed and the other is dying A LOT and getting revived at certain checkpoints before their death.

ANIME SPOILERS!!!!!

in rising of the shield hero, those that betrayed him before are punished epicly and in an amazing way. not saying anything else ;)

Ghostdog1521 Ghostdog1521 says...

Both are two the best of the isekai genre.

Both balance a serious story with fun and comedic moments.

Both share very likable characters.

Rem and Raphtalia are two of the greatest best girls in recent years.

akidiestwice akidiestwice says...

Both of them are isekai series' with more of a dark fantasy setting, and with protagonists that are a bit less... run of the mill. They still have the whole "otaku summoned to a video game-like world" sort of theme, but there's a lot more depth to these protagonists than we've seen in other isekai anime.

LuckyLuchia LuckyLuchia says...

Both anime have similar genre: romance, comedy, action, adventure, isekai

At the beginning of both isekai anime, the male hero is whisked away in to a brand new world. The new scenery is completely foreign, and unknown. Both anime have a heavy emphasis on romance. As the main character sets on a journey, he encounters a whirlwind of characters with a wide variety of personalities: cunning, manipulative, kind, sincere, naive, supportive, villainous, etc. The character ultimately has some ugly encounters and regrets. Nevertheless, they continue to protect their friends from danger and peril. 

Both male protagonists have dark hair with pale yellowish skin. Both anime have random comedic moments. 

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...

both are Isekais, have Powerful main characters who use their head to get their way, both have action but also focus on important but less actiony elements of the world, like being merchants and politics. Shield hero was darker than log horizon, and log horizon's mc wasnt rejected by the other people who were transported to the new world, but overall they have a similar vibe.

TheGlowingMoon TheGlowingMoon says...

In Log Horizon, the Adventurers are the ones who are transferred into their world; plus, it was originally a game. In The Rising of the Shield Hero, there was four selected people from different timezones who are transferred into their world. 

The main characters are somewhat the same. 

Shield Hero was darker than Log Horizon, but both are still enjoyable in my opinion. I personally preferred The Rising of the Shield Hero more. 

DangoAnime11 DangoAnime11 says...

They are both good isekai anime. Log Horizon shows more of a tactical side with little consequence towards their actions, while The Rising of the Shield Hero is more dark. They both tell a really great story and are some of my favorite anime.

HikenNoAsxce HikenNoAsxce says...

Really the only difference is the darker tone of Shield Hero.

Both Anime stand on their own. Shiled Hero is about reclaiming ones position, and overcoming despair. Log Horizion is just day to day lives in a Video Game

The Initial premises are very similar- MC is an otaku with a penchant for fantasy.

Both seasons of GATE are an adventure, if you like Shield Hero, elves, demi humans etc. you'll love GATE.

niotabunny niotabunny says...

if you're into an "otaku" venturing into an unknown realm in order to understand what they are up against, with some interesting aspects to said "otaku" world, then you've come to the right spot.  the only difference is the rising of the shield hero tends to be a bit darker to watch shading wise whereas Gate has a much brighter ability to see what you're viewing.  so remember to keep that in mind if you're watching shield hero on a bright screen, the darkness factor could be a bit "blinding".  otherwise it's a very similar story line with different heroes facing up against other worldly creatures such as dragons, goblins and so forth.

There are many anime I could recommend that are similar to Shield Hero in many respects, given that Seiyu is a vast genre. DANMACHI, as it's called in shorthand (Is it wrong to try to pick up girls in a dungeon?) is more dungeon centric but, like shield hero, has an MC following the hero-2-zero path. Like SH it si filled with fantastical monsters, demi humans, also elves and even demigods. If you enjoy yhebmore comedic situations and also subtle harem antics, you'll love it.

What it lacks in genuine heavy hearted hits it makes up for with fanservice, comedy, and well thought out drama.

Spoiler alert for both series

Both series shares many tropes in common, be that from raising slaves, climbing noble ranks, fighting "world calamities", cultivating land, running businesses or travelling to foreign fantasy nations/lands.

The main difference is simply the characteristics of the MC, Naofumi went through a trauma, having his ability to trust others shattered. This gives him some degree of character, but go away if you think he will ever recover from what happened.

And Suzuki is just your everyday shameless self insert (though this time not a insecure beta loser). Though, Naofumi sure do suffer from the Jane Doe flaws too, the authour tries to cover it up, tries.

I've already read the web novel, of both series, Tate no Yuusha being complete, and Death March still ongoing. Though I know that the anime is based on the light novel and not the web novel, I don't imagine the light novel branching so far off the source material.
