Dog Days was one of those series that pleasantly surprised me. At first I thought the series wouldn't get anywhere, but it sure proved me wrong. As the weeks passed by, the series just kept getting better, and it just goes to show that first impressions aren't everything.

Dog Days starts off like a number of fantasy series, with our protagonist getting summoned to another world to assist with a war that is currently going on. Although the word “war” makes it sound like something big is going on, a war is more like a game with a protective barrier to prevent anyone read more

On a personal note, I had quite high hopes for this show. With a good amount of successful anime stemming from being original anime series, Dog Days, having that element, combined with having an excellent seiyuu cast and being animated and directed by the staff from the animation studio Seven Arcs, seemed highly promising to deliver a successful show. However for the most part they did not.

Story and Setting

Dog Days is a 13 episode original series which revolves around a boy called Cinque or Shinku who is transported into a medieval fantasy land called Flonyard as a hero of the country Biscotti, to fight read more

I'm absolute furry trash

Really though, this show is a wholly example of why you shouldn't judge a book by its cover. Episode 1 is incredibly light and shallow, but the show blossoms into something much better by the end. All the characters are likeable and have their motives, so when conflict erupts, you can't just point to one side and go "those are the bad guys clearly in the wrong". Art is cutesy if not revolutionary, and all of the girls are best girl (except for the humans, they're lame) The show takes a war-game type approach, and paved the way for great shows like read more

If there was one word to describe this anime, it would be: ADORABLE!!! This is a kind of slice-of-life anime, but with some harmless action (however weird that sounds) and harem.

Story: There isn't much of an overarching story, just people living their lives in this beautiful and (for the most part) always peaceful world. There is a bit of an underlying plot where one character has to do things that they don't want to, for the sake of another person. But other than that there's nothing much to it.
But I think that's what makes it so enjoyable-you get to enjoy the world read more

I am not recomending "Dog Days" to those who like "Zero no Tsukaima", but recomending "Zero no Tsukaima" to those who like "Dog Days". Yes, there have been a lot of comparisons to the two, because they happen to have male main characters summoned to another world, but beyond that, they are two very different series. "Zero no Tsukaima" is better plot wise and uses humor much better, not to mention has really good characters. 
The first thing that came into my mind after seeing Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou Desu yo? was dog days..Both are fantasy anime in which the hero is invited to another world for participating in a game. 
Almost the same, except the main character in anime actually went along to the other world for some excitement, while the other got duped by his own gov't.  
Both have the 'boy gets into a completely different world' plot, the boy sucked into the world of the non-human lead. Both are fantasy genres that are fairly recent. (Heck, they're even both 2011 spring titles) 
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. 
Within both anime, the protagonists are summoned to another world to participate in a game! as well both world having no murder/thief ect.
the protagonist are strong in what they do, dog days athletic and in no game no life gaming/strategy/tatics.
No game no life deals more with what most strategic games deal with, such as strategy and tactics which i found sophisticated.
while dog days deal with more of martial art and athletic skills!

If you enjoy one, you'll like to enjoy the other!
