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 from getting seriously harmed. However as the series goes on a catastrophe begins to develop and the characters are forced to stop it.
When the series first started, it looked like it wouldn’t actually have a plot because the series was all happy, cheerful and Flonyard (the name of the alternate world)seemed like a perfect world. However one plot twist would change all that and gave the series a foundation to build a plot on. The plot twist itself was also unforeseeable because it completely changed the mood from happy and cheerful to something more serious and dark . It just goes to show you that things aren’t always what they seem. The plot itself is pretty simple, doesn’t over complicate things and is pretty easy to follow. The story is also paced well too as it doesn’t try to squeeze it’s plot into 2 episodes like some series, and because of this the plot actually has time to develop. However I think that there could have been a little bit more added to the story if they had they introduced the plot a bit earlier, but nonetheless the story is pretty solid.Dog Days also excels in an area where I’ve seen a number of series fail, the ending . Not only is it really emotional and heartwarming but it also gives hope for a possible second season. Despite getting off to a slow start, for a 13 episode series the story is really well developed and well paced. Not masterpiece work but the story definitely exceeded my expectations for this series.
The animation was beautiful, the vibrant colors really added to the happy and cheerful mood that the series had initially. Also during battles the visual effects used to animate the magic are visually appealing too. The fights themselves are well done too.
The opening really fit the anime because of the heroic feel it had to it. The ending sounded more sweet and had a really catchy rhythm. All the voice actors matched the character they were playing. The insert songs in the anime were pretty good too. All around a pretty solid job on sound.
With the exception of the protagonist and the minor characters from earth, all the other characters are half animal. However they still look like humans, they just have animal features like ears and tail which make them look cute.
I’ve noticed that a number of recent series have these weak and useless protagonists that really don’t do much, but this is not the case in Dog Days. The protagonist Cinque/Shinku Izumi is called the hero for good reason, he’s always ready to fight and plays a significant role in many of the battles. For a human he has incredible strength and speed and looks like he can be on Ninja Warrior (search it on youtube if you don't know what it is). He’s also able to handle the other character’s emotions really well being able to cheer them up when they are down and really is a nice and likeable character.
The main female Millhoire F. Biscotti is a gentle, soft spoken and well mannered princess but she does have some unique qualities that seperates her from most typical princesses. During the middle of the series and toward the end she did fight the demon with Cinque/Shinku showing that she can fight and defend herself. Also as an added bonus, she can sing and songs she sings are always nice to hear and on top of that being half dog makes her and a lot of the other characters pretty cute.
A lot of other characters also play a role in the story instead of just being pushed to the side. Ricotta helping with her artillery support and trying to get Cinque/Shinku home, Éclair assisting Cinque/Shinku in battle and also
Leonmitchelli who’s secretly trying to prevent the catastrophe.
To be honest when Dog Days first started, I thought it was fun to watch but kind of stupid. However as the plot slowly revealed itself, my desire to watch Dog Days also increased. The random comedy at times was also hilarious and overall was an enjoyable watch.
Dog Days started out slow but once it got going it never looked back. The plot that was presented may be simple but it’s well paced and well developed and definitely worth the watch.
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 against the nation of Gallette. From this premise, it was possible for the show to develop into something complex, but the setting of the show, being light-hearted in a manner suiting children, nullified most prospects of there being any serious conflicts or development from the get-go. As viewers will soon discover in Episode 1, war between nations is almost perfectly safe, with inhabitants either turning into animal fluff-balls or having their clothes blown off, a somewhat hilarious foil to the seriousness of actual warfare. However, this is not to say that Dog Days is a show completely suited to children. Seven Arcs being Seven Arcs, there are traces of fanservice here and there and a darkish twist when the 'villain' emerges.
The story, being set in a medieval war-like setting gives way to the strength of the series, that is the action scenes. Most of the fighting and action scenes were nicely choreographed with bows, swords, staves, shurikens and even magical artillery as weaponry. There was much flashiness, especially from the character's special Seal Cannon moves which are comparable to the much loved beamspam from the Nanoha series. The action was also quite prevalent throughout the series with several episodes being fully devoted to fights between the characters. Despite the action, I have criticisms of how certain fights were completely skipped and looking back now, I felt the series could've been improved if they choose to extend the fights instead of focusing on minor show elements such as fanservice.
The overall plot though is unfortunately very shallow and unimaginative and is something I have to be very critical of. There are perhaps only two major important points in the story, one which is resolved in the time span of one episode and the other is full of glaring plot holes and unlikely coincidences.
This brings me to the pacing of the series. Dog Days can either drag out one conflict or story element for several episodes, or resolve another story element in a single episode. This I found was quite detrimental to the series and marked a serious flaw in the storyboard and directing of the series overall.
My final opinion on the story is that I'm quite disappointed with it. It had potential to become something interesting and complex, but Seven Arcs decided to pull off the same twist too many times. Attempting to garner sympathy for the 'villain'.
Character designers these days are attempting to add more and more different elements to the characters and their outfits and designs and for the most part they are quite successful. Dog Days also follows in this fashion, creating a very large cast of different unique and mostly flavourful characters with their own quirks, features and personality.
Each major character who participates in combat (that is to say the great majority of them) possesses their own unique Seal, which is displayed as an emblem when they perform special attacks. Each character also fights in a unique style which is separate from the other characters using a large variety of weapons from bows, magical artillery, giant axes to even anchors. The characters also all have separate personalities, despite some being archetypical, it was strange yet pleasant that Seven Arcs managed to juggle all the different natures of the characters together.
For example, our male hero, Cinque, fights with his divine staff/sword (and no it's not Raising Heart) Paladion with incredible acrobatic, athletic manoeuvres and with his multiple Seal Cannon techniques such as summoning a divine jetboard or playing with flaming sticks. It's actually quite refreshing to have a male protagonist like Cinque who doesn't get beat upon or is a hesitant sissy when the action comes and for actually making a likeable male protagonist in the sea of boring males protagonists out there, Seven Arcs deserve some credit.
My only criticism is with such a large cast of characters, it's nearly impossible to give all of them the screen time that fans would desire. The character Godwin Dorure, who is voiced by Norio Wakamoto, is one example of a character I would've liked to have witnessed more. I felt other important characters such as Yukikaze and the Countess d’Arquien also needed more screen time.
My final opinion on the characters is that I'm pleased with depth of uniqueness most characters possess in things such as personality, fighting style and appearance. With such a large cast of characters, viewers will probably find a character they'll like to cheer for, although this brings me back to my criticism of the amount of screen time characters get.
Art, Animation and Music
The art and animation for Dog Days isn't a strength but nor is it a weakness. There are a few pluses for the show, notably the fighting and the art for the seal cannons and their emblems. They are very flashy and pretty to look at, and the design for the Emblems have quite a bit of depth to them. One of the more average aspects of art for the show was the rather uninspiring backgrounds. With the potential of the fantasy setting, Seven Arcs could've been considerably more creative then the very average backgrounds of floating islands, blue skies and clouds and lush green battlefields which is used quite a bit throughout the series. A minus for the show in the art and animation department was the crudely drawn faces of the grunt soldiers which features throughout almost all the episodes and in one of the later episodes, a singing scene which the animation really goes downhill.
What I feel is an underrated, or rather unmentioned aspect of Dog Days is the music. The battle music is slightly similar to music I've heard from games, such as Megaman, especially the music from battles which is to say they're of good quality. The music in general feels appropriate for the scenes they're accompanying and adds to the atmosphere.
Overall, there's nothing super flashy to mention about the art of the show aside from the special moves. The animation was average in most parts aside from large dips towards the end of the series. The music is a praiseworthy aspect which accompanies the progression of the scenes well.
In the end, Dog Days shapes itself to be a a bit mediocre at best. There's nothing inspiring or largely original with its story or background and the only real strength it has are the characters (which is the case for a lot of shows nowadays), the action (which it decided to skip out a lot of) and the music. For action fans, Dog Days may intrigue you with a decent amount of action. For fantasy fans, Dog Days is likely nothing new and there's probably better shows to watch out there. Enjoyment-wise, Dog Days proved to be a mildly entertaining light-hearted series with the action and a few comedic scenes here and there and gets an enjoyment score of 7.5. However from a critical perspective, Dog Days fares worse with a score of 7. read more
Riddle me this; a boy has been summoned to a faraway land full of animal-human hybrids and has become the centerpiece of an on-going war between the kingdom of dogs and the kingdom of cats. This boy is thirteen, small in stature, incredibly gifted athletically, and always believes in the right way, as opposed to the wrong way; the way of evil and immoral purposes. Typically, boys like this are somewhat hard to come by, as thirteen year old boys are usually at the point of transition between childhood and puberty, in which case, their minds begin to wonder, about everything. So, to point out the fact that this boy, who was transported to a world predominantly controlled by colorful-haired, big eyed women, is so pure of heart, it's safe to say that there shouldn't be any issues with his likability, as we all enjoy the good guy. Except not everyone does, but that doesn't stop Dog Days from making it the message to be learned from its content.
It wouldn't be very rare to find someone who has imagined leaving their current reality and partaking in a world where mundane tasks and the perils of responsibility don't matter. Whether they choose to escape their current dimension for purposes of necessity or pleasure, worlds such as the one portrayed in Dog Days are typical starting points for those looking for an image of peace and tranquility. This being said, the main character, Cinque, doesn't ask to be saved from his less than stellar lifestyle, he simply follows through on his curiosity and steps into a portal to another land. Unfortunately for him, he has no way back. That doesn't stop him from having a good time, however, as he's introduced to the colorful... colors of the new world and the inhabitants that make it up. Before long, he's deemed a hero by his summoner, the princess of the dog kingdom, Millhiore, and is rushed into battle with nothing but a ring on his hand. This is certainly not a very subtle introduction.
The world in which Cinque arrives in is a bit of a sight to behold. While two kingdoms are at war, it's not the kind of war that one would probably imagine. These two kingdoms are actually on good terms. The princesses (because kings and queens aren't cute enough to hold a position in this world) are childhood friends, and hold each other as dearly as I do with my own pets. These "wars" that their kingdoms' people partake in are simply a giant game. There is no evil intent, there is no killing, no injuries, no marauding. Every purpose of these wars is to make sure that their kingdoms' citizens are all entertained equally. I suppose one could infer that if partaking in war was the most enjoyable thing in this world, some might want to partake in an actual war. Just for fun. The issue with this becomes simple: there is no suspense. If the princess is captured, what of it? They won't do anything to her because this is all just a big game. If your entire army is wiped out, oh well. Those who had fallen in battle are allowed to come back after a certain time limit. It ruins any sense of dread within the plot, and ultimately kills most of the entertainment value for those expecting an enthralling action anime.
The cast of Dog Days is as wide of an array of characters as I've ever seen. We have the hero, Cinque, with his pure intentions and heart of a true warrior. We have the princess of the dog kingdom, Millhiore, and the princess of the cat kingdom, Leo, both of whom are very beautifully designed. We also have a captain of the knight faction in the dog kingdom, Eclair, who is fourteen years old. Let me just reiterate; a fourteen year old girl is the captain of the knight faction in the dog kingdom army. We also have Rico, who looks as if she just came out of her mother's womb and is already smarter than everyone else on the planet. There are many other characters that could be highlighted, but, overall, they don't hold as much importance to the role of the anime as the characters already listed. And with an anime that spans thirteen episodes, it isn't hard to imagine that each character gets a healthy dose of negligence. All except for Cinque, because he's the hero, of course.
Speaking of which, Cinque is as unlikable a character as I've ever seen from a (implied) harem. His constant obsession with meeting everyone's standards and his one for all attitude is enough to cause an uproar among the minds of those waiting for a more original character. He's optimistic, he's everything any person would want in a hero, but what hurts him the most is that he simply doesn't act his age. This boy is thirteen. Why is he so willing to go along with everything that is entrusted to him? Wouldn't someone as young as him think, maybe, the fact that he cannot return to his own world would be somewhat of a hindrance to his mindset as a person who enjoyed their former life? Not to mention, the minute skin shows (and it shows a lot), he's the first to turn away with no desire to look back. Thirteen years old.
Other important characters include the two princesses, Millhiore and Leo; Eclair, and Rico. Millhiore is the standard love interest for the main character and a not-really-original-anymore archetype for the not-so damsel in distress. Leo is among the first victims of this series' desire to show some developed chests, and her personality is the equivalent of a dedicated older sister towards Millhiore, somewhat like the relationship between a dog and its owner, except she's a cat. Eclair is among Cinque's (implied) harem and boasts the most adorable tsundere act throughout this entire anime. Rico, as mentioned before, has the body of a baby and has the intelligence of Einstein. She is solely responsible for finding out how to return Cinque back to his own world. That doesn't stop Dog Days from showing her naked, but that's unimportant to her character. By the way, every character mentioned in this paragraph gets naked at some point during the anime. You're welcome.
Where Dog Days shines brightest is in its character design. Every single female character in this entire series is incredibly attractive. All of them. Whether their designs range from sexy to adorable, they all have the same sort of aura about them that makes them pleasurable to the eyes of the audience. And not just that, but the creatures (which, randomly, aren't human hybrids) that reside within the world of Dog Days are also laced with creativity from beak to claw. Unfortunately, a single drawback from this is that it may come across as completely disgusting. A kingdom full of rainbows and fuzzy animals and colorful characters and big-eyed freaks and chibi balls of what once were normal cat and/or dog-human hybrids; it's all a little much. Perhaps this kind of animation and character design would be completely lost on the color blind. Regardless, if being dazzling was a profession, Dog Days would be its CEO.
What Dog Days does best, in my eyes, is being committed to its audience. Because of this, I simply couldn't enjoy it. There are multiple signs of fan service prevalent throughout this entire anime. Characters with colorful hairstyles and big eyes, and the fact that their combined with basic domestic animals. Sexual fan service. A majority of the characters are female and attractive, with impressive figures. The main character, excluding his can-do, pure attitude, has no personality. War within this series is a game, so no one gets hurt and everyone is happy. And when conflict finally does arise, it's taken care of in a flash, with no explanations of where it came from in the first place. Characters that appear youthful are actually well over a hundred years old. The fact that men don't hold any importance outside of the main character. Combine these points with a plethora of cliches (if what was listed wasn't cliche enough) and you have the world Dog Days hopes to embody. Nothing but fun and fantasies, through and through.
While Dog Days isn't anything extraordinary on the surface, the possibilities that are thrown away along with most of the male characters are a troubling thought, and leaves me with a feeling of regret. The series tries its very best to sugarcoat the series and squeeze every possible cliche it can in order to appease its audience, but underneath it all, it's basically a rehashed fantasy/adventure story that lets itself get far too out of hand. If only heroes existed in the world of literature, so stories like this could be given a fair chance to flourish with multi-dimensional characters and an effort to create instability within the fun world that Dog Days creates. read more
UPDATED UP TO EP 3
We rarely see Medieval Fantasy Anime. I mean, the only prominate one out there is Zero no Tsukaima. I love anything Fantasy related so naturally Dog days would be at the top of my list for the plan to watch anime for the Spring 2011 season and naturally being a fantasy anime it would be compaired to Zero No Tsukaima. But are they really the same? At first, my answer was No but now up to Three Episodes, things are different.
The thing is this anime can't decide what it is. It wants to be an anime with some ripped ideas with a sort of cool athletic/fighting competition (just don't call it a war, more will be explained later). But, on the other hand it wants to be a light-ecchi Rip-off of Zero No Tsukaima, having a bath encounter scene and a grope/tsun scene. But enough of this, On to the Review!
The basic plot is here for fantasy anime. The protagonist gets sucked into a different world of fantasy and has to deal with what happens and also becomes some sort of savior or hero of a kingdom and falls in love with a noble. Dog days is no different here. But now it is here that it gets...well...stupid. In the fantasy world of Dog days dog/human hybrids of the kingdom of Biscotti and cat/human hybrids of the king of Gellato..*ahem* Galette are fighting for territory, with the cats on the offense. But here, this war isn't actually a war. It is basically an obsticle course/athletics competition...ok...That is one of the dumbest things ever. Sure, while the cat vs dog thing in a fantasy land is cool the athletics conpetition as a civilized war is just stupid. Basically the anime turns the idea of war and makes it so lighthearted that it is a game that is magically broad casted across kingdoms (yes, this world has some advanced stuff like Binoculars or microphones, probably not electricity based and uses magic but still). I went through the definition of war and the 'war' in this anime is not a war and it shouldn't be called a war. Sure, there are swords and weapons but they do nothing as they seem to make the warriors go *poof* and they turn into their chibi version of their base animal. Oh yeah, there are no horses, the people here ride on chocobos, or some relative of them. Oh yeah, *SPOILERS*...
The Princess gets Kidnapped...surprised?
Shinku: This is the main protagonist. Unlike Saito from ZnT, Shinku is pretty bad-ass to start out with, he can Jump high, run fast and is damn good with a staff. Sure, he follows the usual male protagonist in harem animes but he is turning out well and has good morals
Millhoire: Still, even though Millhoire is supposed to be the main female in this anime, she doesn't really have that much background. The only thing we actually know about her is that she can sing (which we haven't even heard yet). She acts more like a supporting character in the first two episodes, just watching the "war" (I still use this term lightly) and commenting. The third episode she gets in an embarrassing situation and gets kidnapped. Oh well, so much for character development.
Eclair: Seemly a perfect name for a character that lives in a kingdom named after a cookie (For those who don't know, an Eclair is a type of Pastry, very delicious also). Eclair is our stereotypical Small-Breasted, In-very-humiliating-situations Tsundere of the anime, not as much as any character Kugimiya has done but a Tsundere still. I hate this character and like her at the same time. For one, I hate her for one reason. She calls Shinku an idiot for not knowing that like the princess is an idol and the monetary system and stuff about the world Shinku is in at the moment. I'm pretty sure it is said about ten times in-front of her that he is from a different world, doesn't she have the brains to know that things are different on different worlds? It is very annoying, very annoying. What makes her likable? Well she gets into all the humiliating situations, might as well like the fanservice character.
It is a fantasy anime so there is some good art showing a fantasy world. Midieval Kingdoms, Floating rocks, great landscapes. Nothing special but still good art.
No problems with the sound. The OP and ED are ok, they can grow with enough listens. What really surprises me is the fact that some pretty high class Seriyuus are on this anime (Nana mizuki for example) so that is a + on my book.
While this anime looks fun and is fun, I sort of lost some enjoyment from the stupid idea of trivializing war and making it a simple athletic/ obstacle competition (Sora no otoshimono: Forte's Snow war EP was more like a war than this series). The Fighting animation is very good and the visuals are good.
Overral this anime gets an 8. Actually it should be a 7 but I am being leniant due to the lack of medieval fantasy anime's out there. I didn'tt expect to really, really love this anime but it has gotten better in the later two episodes
(Note: Lots of people seem to rate 7 as average or bad in their rating systems when in fact 7 means it is good. 5-6 is average not 7) 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.
Our "Hero" who is living his daily life get's summoned by a girl from a different world in order to fight for/with her.
This anime reminds you of Zero no Tsukaima.A girl from different world summoning an ordinary japaneese boy. However Dog Days is less violent than Zero no Tskaima but equally Echi.Both main guys are very dense. Also Dog days dosen't have the harem theme although some girls think he is cool but it really isn't harem yet.
In both the protagonist is an ordinary boy who is summoned by a pink-haired girl in a fantasy world.
Both guys are about the same age and had a normal dandy life and are "summoned" by a chick with pinkish hair. Aside from that, the guys in each are walking and all of a sudden are falling from the sky and land in a fancy shmancy world that has a war. Well, Zero no Tsukaima's war comes later on. But you get the picture. Oh, and both anime have a super major uber nice princess.
Both series involves a main protagonist who is dragged into another world where he has his life changed forever.
Both series contain plenty of battles mixed in with action, comedy, drama, and later romance.
Both series has fantasy themes that are considered more lighthearted with some ecch in the mix.
Both series' main protagonist also has similar personalities in terms of valor and charisma.
Both protagonists get sent to a different world that they dont know. The diffrence is that in zero no tsukaima he can actually kill people but in dog days when you hurt someone they turn into a cat (round ball)
~(May include spoilers)~
Both Main male character go to another world other than Earth.
Both worlds have magic there, but Dog Days' magic is more random, whereas Zero no Tsukaima's magic is based more on wizards.
Both male main characters want to get back to their own world.
Both main female characters don't want them to go.
Both main male characters are summoned to the new world.
Main character starts as a hero in Dog Days summoned by a princess, but in Zero no Tsukaima the main male character starts as a familiar with a owner who is bullied and still at magic school.
(I can tell you more but then I would be telling a few too many spoilers)
both protagonist goes to another world where they will be summoned and they will be intrested in that world
Similar stories about summoners and invocations. The relationship between the summoner and the invocation will evolve in the story.
In both, a human boy is summoned to another world where magic and mythical creatures exist, to fight for a little pink haired girl.
Of course, they are not exactly the same. Dog Days is more friendly (They "play" wars where nobody can die or get hurt), and has a lot (A LOT) more fanservice. Also, it's more comical than dramatical.
So: if you liked one, you'll probably like the other one and get a change in atmosphere at the same time.
These two anime have a lot of similarities, although the biggest similarity is how the lead male character is introduced into the story.
I personally didn't like Zero no Tsukaima very much, although I did enjoy Dog Days. Those of you like me who weren't very impressed with Zero no Tsukaima should give Dog Days a try. It's a bit slow at first, but it gets pretty interesting.
All I have to say is it's the non sadist, slightly less tsundere version of Zero no Tsukaima. Plot development is comparatively slow and the main character has the same type of a shallow characteristic as Saito, but even less realistic. He's also not a pervert, well, in a sense compared to other anime protagonists xD
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.
both MC have blond hair
both MC's actually go out and OMIGOD...have fun. they actually look forward to stuff happening around them
both are physically talented and pretty bad@$$
both anime involves going into a fantasy world.
VERY dynamic character designs.
the worlds they go to have a different way of handling conflicts, or rather...wars.
both somehow feel like their referencing Touhou.
In both anime a Hero is summoned to another world and participates in a game. Both anime have a fantasy/adventure feeling.
In both series, the characters are certainly thrown into another fantasy world where their lives changes forever. In that fantasy world, there exists games and competitions.
The other characters from the series resembles animals and presents themselves in a lighthearted way. Despite this, there is drama and action in both series.
Both series gives off an adventure like feeling.
Both are about 'children' who got whisked away to another land to help the people who summoned them win games.
Mondaiji-tachi is like a badass version of Dog Days! In both series, humans are summoned to a fantasy world where they are asked to help take part in various events held within the world. I recommend both if you enjoy fantasy series that have some fighting and part human/part animal characters!
The main characters of both animes have been summoned to help people of another world who are in trouble.
Both involve diffrent animals and races other than humans.
Dog Days is very similar. They both have male leads who are strong. They both have male leads that want to have fun along with companions that are girls. They both have set battles and winner gets something whether it's useful to them or not. Usually at the end something big is happening and the male lead must do something with the help of his friends. The male leads also get summoned to a different world
The differences in Dog Days is that it has more of a romantic setting at the end, while Mondiji " doesn't. But over all both are rather enjoyable.
How does it feel like when you have been transported to fantasy world and just go there to have fun? In the story, The main characters in here were sent by an anonymous request by a person and transported in a fantasy world, filled with different species. Although consider that they have a fun time, a conflict issues about this fantasy world and basically starts a war between the main characters and different groups of people.
Dog days is a lighthearted tone, filled with moe characters, and is based on competition. Problem with Children, features a much more mature theme, that monsters were used in battle, and very powerful character.
When i was watching Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou
Desu yo? I was reminded by a series which was similar to it and it's called "Dog Days" Why? Because both Series have a Blonde Male MC invited to a "Magical World" which involves a game. A game that involves fighting and winning for your allies. Both MC's are badasses too ^_^. Although Dog Days has less Action than Mondaiji because dog days only fights in a "real" game. Lol no blood and such.
So i really recommend to watch both if you like this kind of anime.
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 series are very similar, A normal human goes to a world fulled with magic, friendship and almost there romance (If you know what I mean)
-main character is stuck in another world
-meets new girls, and quickly becomes friends with them
-some ecchi in both series
-main character is a key to the relationship between 2 countries( biscotti and Gallete in dog days, japan and the magical world in outbreak comapny)
- fantasy world(fantasy genre)
- certain characters have cute ears animal ears :)
The same situation were guy got transported into another world and have to find a way home.
Both almost share the same genre, except the mc "OC" was trying to improve the lives of the entities in the alternate universe he's in, while in "DD" the mc was in it for the excitement and to make his summer vacation wonderful.
What happens when a teenager goes from modern Japan to fantasyland?
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!
If you watched No Game No Life solely for its game strategy (which is the best of the series), ignore this recommendation. There is no comparison between the quality of the development and story of Dog Days and No Game No Life, however if you enjoyed the fanservice, the lolis, the nonsensical humour, the ecchi comedy and the scenes with animal girls of the latter, then you're likely to enjoy Dog Days too since it has more of the same. Despite their differences in both series the main characters are drawn into a fantasy world where war and conquests between the various countries are solved through games.
Where to begin?... No Game No Life is simply the NEETs version of Dog Days. No Game No Life covers strongly on an alternate world, but instead of a synopsis of "OMG, I GOTTA GET OUT OF HERE," like Dog Days and a few other anime, namely Sword Art Online, it has a more of a Log Horizon or PCACFAW (Problem Children) approach of finding out more of the world. Of course Dog Days's plot does develop in the direction of Cique wanting to learn more of Flonyard. The key similarities between NGNL and Dog Days is probably the excitement and the setting, and both definitely have a nice peaceful (kind of) world you might want to be in.
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)
A boy from human world comes to a world of mysterious creatures and fantasy theme, and they got the princess, though the both have Ecchi and romance.
Looking for something funny or cute? Then, these two series may be for you. Let's see why:
- both series contains comedy
- both involves being summoned to another world involving the supernatural
- similar conflicts
- both contain light romance
- both are also somewhat heart-warming
- both contain a little ecchi
You get the idea.
