Synopsis

This is Gamindustri. Beings called the Goddesses rule the countries of this unreal world. The four Goddesses govern four states: Planeptune, Lastation, Lowee, and Leanbox. For many long years, these countries fought each other over the Shares, the source of the Goddess power.

However, fearful that the conflict would pointlessly erode their countries' strength, the Goddesses signed a Friendship Treaty forbidding them from taking Shares by force.

Under the treaty, the Goddesses and their younger sisters took a step forward to a new stage in their relations. It was the dawn of a new, dynamic era marked occasionally by shared laughter, disputes as well cooperation.

What does the future hold in store for Gamindustri?

As an anime, Hyperdimension Neptunia fails. There is little to no plot, no build up or character development and, unless your a fan of the games, it has a sense of humour you probably wouldn't understand. And that's the whole point right there. This anime was made for one sole purpose: fan service. And not the obvious kind of fan service that's apparent from the opening moments that can be found throughout the anime, but the kind of fan service that makes fans of the games happy. Don't think I'm bashing Hyperdimension Neptunia at all. I LOVE the games. That was just a view of read more

Neptunia is a game franchise from Compile Heart and Idea Factory. They are solid games, albeit with some issues, and their Lily system is one of the best things in any video game. Seriously, more games need a system where yuri makes the characters stronger. In 2013 there was an anime version, separate in storyline from any of the games. It was handled by David Production, the same studio behind Jojo's Bizarre Adventure. It's only the second anime I've seen where they were responsible for the main production. How well does it hold up?

As a big, humungous, obnoxious fan of the Hyperdimension Neptunia video games, I was overjoyed to hear that it was getting an anime adaption.

Studio David had us believing that they were going to do pretty well by this adaption. And in the first few episodes, that’s the impression you get. But from there on, it all goes downhill. It’s unfortunate, but the end product turned out to be a bit of a rushed mess that only captured a fraction of what was so loveable about the games.

The first thing that’s noticeably off about this adaption is the character designs. Tsunako, the original character read more

It’s one thing when you are a fan of a video game that all of a sudden has been confirmed to have an anime adaptation and feel nothing but contempt and frustration in the reasoning why they would bother. However, when your game is already in-of-itself a game that already acts like an anime, already you think to yourself that this will already be a slam dunk based on how it was born to become an anime show in the first place. So likewise, I was in the same mindset going into this. What I got in the end for Neptunia the Animation was nothing read more

Recommendations

In both series, there's the fantasy world where there's fun, action, and adventure like setting.

Dog Days and Neptune also both have fan service involving the female cast. In general, they have the same vibe in terms of fantasy. There's also rulers in their perspective worlds. Additionally, there's conflicts between certain nations. Oh and the characters' designs are adorable in terms of visual artwork. In Dog Days though, there's a little romance added in while Neptune focuses more on fun and friendship.
The premise of K-ON! and Neptunia are both about cute girls being brought together due to a common cause and in both series, end up doing cute things. While the setting may differ greatly, both series are light-hearted in nature and the girls' antics are guaranteed to leave you in laughter.
Both shows have similar fantasy themes to it. Main characters either just have fun or go on an adventure/quests like fighting bad guys, etc from time to time. As a bonus, the girls in both shows also have transformation scenes!
As far as these two series goes, Date a Live and Neptune both involves girls with super powers. Their setting contrasts each other but they have similar character designs. This is because Tsunako is involved with the artwork which makes both series' characters look somewhat similar in terms of their looks.

These two series also shares a similarity in which the characters can transform but only with a certain condition are met. Their transformations grants them new powers that enhances their battle tactics.

Both series' cast also are made up mainly of female characters (although DAL includes a main male protagonist).
Video game to RPG tropes are most relevant in both series. Both franchises embody a wishful fulfillment of enlightening the audience with monstrous attacks on the heroines, within SAO, for example, Asuna fights gigantic tentacle monsters, whilst within Neptune, all the heroines struggle against slim monsters, etc.
