Goblin Slayer

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...

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.

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.

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.

Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-

Natsuki Subaru, an ordinary high school student, is on his way home from the convenience store when he finds himself transported to another world. As he's lost and confused in a new world where he doesn't even know left from right, the only person to reach out to him was a beautiful girl with silver hair.

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.
