Basically if you liked Outbreak Company then you will probably like Gate:
The MC are an Otaku
Take you to another world
Involve some type of war/battle
So far Gate: looks like it will be more focused on Earth VS the other world
Gate: is less moe
Outbreak Company shows more of the Otaku culture
Both involves an otaku protagonist hired by the military to explore a new world. Both have 2 worlds connected by a gate, one world is the modern Japan while the other world is a fantasy world (elf, magic, dragons, etc.)
The first episode so the main characters very similar Otaku males that have to deal with culture and diplomatic relationships that have arises between modern and medieval age. Both have great characters and the art and setting allows you to believe you are actually the one there. If you are into new world genre stop what you are doing and watch both of these. The only difference between the two is the amount of episodes (24 for gate and 12 for Outbreak Company).
Main protagonists of these series are both full-fledged otaku. While Kanou Shinichi from Outbreak Company is a more hardcore one and a hikkikomori too, Itami Youji from GATE is a more moderate one with respectful job as JSDF soldier. Both are thrown into fantasy-setting world somehow against their wills.
The main difference is that Outbreak Company is a cute moe comedy with some ecchi elements and only a bit of drama, while GATE is a more serious attempt to portray what it would be if this were to happen in our world.
the main characters , the themes , even the art remeber alots of Outbreak company , the main difference betwen both are that Outbreak company is a more lightly parody/comedy and Gate is more a "serious" military/fantasy , if you like one you will like the other.
In this two animes the lead character is an otaku, who is send to an other world (Medieval age + Magic) where he will encounter magical creatures like elves, etc.
I belive that this anime will focus im a more militaristic view of conquering/colonizing a new world, compared whit Outbreak Company. But apart from that it has the same settings.
They both have the same problems. The current world suddenly connect with another world. And both got the same kind of another world. they both also try to exploring the another world both in terrain and culture. The different is Outbreak Company is more Comedy-Parody, and Gate more politics-Military.
-Both involve "Japan meets world similar to a RPG."
-Outbreak Company focuses more on the cultural exchange; Manga, games, slang, etc.
-Gate takes it in a more realistic direction; Military, media, war, government, dictatorship, etc.
They both feature an otaku as the protagonist being transported into a new world that has magic and are tasked with spreading Japanese influence into the newfound world, in Outbreak Company through spreading moe culture and in GATE through a military invasion.
The difference is that GATE is a right-wing military propaganda portraying JDF as the good guys despite invading the new world and Outbreak Company is not.
The biggest similarity between these two show is it's world setting. How a nation acts after finding out that there's another world just like their own. Japanese Self Defence Force is involved in both shows. Main character including other characters are trying to build up a good and peaceful relationship between two world. So one can say, it's really similar!
In both stories a "gate" to another world opens. Both stories talk about military overpowering the "another world" people and try to make peace together.
Both MCs have influence on the army and the peace agreement.
Gate and Outbreak Company are very similar to each other. Why? First, there is the portal to other world. The protagonist of both anime are otakus.They both work for JDSF. They explore and discover the wonders of fantasy world and bring the Japanese culture and modern technology there. Of course, there is also harem that includes demi-humans.
Outbreak Company and Konosuba are two alternate dimension/fantasy shows with a parody spin on them. While both shows conform to many cliche surrounding the genre, the shows are aware of the cliche used and make fun of them now and then.
Outbreak Company is a comedy/parody of fantasy anime series but with heart.
This anime is genuinely funny and presents a great setting. Which is what if an otaku neet was tasked with spreading his love of anime, video games and manga to a foreign culture. The show strikes an incredible balance between self referential humor, action and heart. It also presents a balanced view of otaku life. Showing both the highs and the lows of it. This is an underrated gem and more people should be sharing this one.
In both Konosuba and Outbreak Company, the main protagonists (being shut-in hikikomoris) end up traveling to a magical fantasy world where they meet various ladies who all have lovable and trope-y personalities. The art styles are similar in that they're both very colorful and bright. Both of the shows sort of make fun of themselves, and are delightful parodies with fun characters and lots of humor!
Outbreak Company and KonoSuba shares the similarity of shut in, NEET main character being send to a fantasy world and both have silly interactions with other characters. There is decent amount of comedy and gags.
Both revolve around a main character that is plunged into a fantasy world.
In this world the main character learns to live in this new environment.
Outbreak Company focuses more on politics while KonoSuba focuses more on adventure.
1.The main character is a NEET who has to leave japan into a new world were people have an old way of life compared to our time and they use magic in their way of life.
2.The main character is always surrounded by female characters
3.The art style is quite similar, vivid color madness
4.The anime focuses more on the comedy and gags
A big fan of a concept where the main guy enters the world of Fantasy?
where kawaii elves, magical girls, goddesses, and knight girls exist? and looking for something that is worth watching? you should try to watch "oubreak company" after watching "konusuba" :D
Outbreak Company and No Game No Life shares the similarity of taking place in fantasy world. And in that world, the main male protagonist gets involved with various races/kingdoms that tests their skills to the limits. There is decent amount of comedy, gags, and references.
Outbreak Company deals with a protagonist using his otaku knowledge to change the world. No Game No Life involves a protagonist that uses their gaming skills to conquer the world. I recommend both series for anyone looking for entertainment in a world with fantasy appeals.
+ NEETS are taken against their will to a colorful fantasy world, but they soon realize they don't care about trying to get back to their old world (unlike most people in this situation in anime)
+ Both are a little ecchi (some younger girls as well as bustier women) but No Game No Life has more
- No Game No Life involves geniuses using their gambling and gaming skills to conquer their world while Outbreak Company has an otaku using his knowledge of Japanese culture to influence the people of the fantasy world
Both of our shut in protagonist get involved in the world they never knew exists.
OC: He was invited to the other world after filling out a survey in the net.
NGNL: He was invited to the other world after beating a mysterious player in chess in the net
They both loli's : Petra/Shiro
And the one w/ lot of fs: Myu/Steph
Outbreak Company also has it's main character work on establishing a friendly relationship between differing races in another world through unconventional means.
They also share the same undertone which involves looking into other characters' perspectives to figure out why and how they will respond to situations.
a neet character travels to another world ..( Fantasy world )
comedy with a little fan-service
cute and lovable characters
main characters personalizes are a different .. Sora in no game no life is a bit perverted and kinda Bad-ass .Shinichi Kanou is on the shy side
the plots layout is completely different
both there anime are funny and enjoyable .if you enjoyed watching one .give the other a try you will not be disappointed.
1.Shut in NEET has to go into a new world and change the way of life.the new world that is introduced is behind in technology and the way they live is old fashioned, Use of magic and existence of beings like elves and many more others
Stories in which protagonists are stuck in a alternate, fantasy world with no possibility of returning. In these medieval societies, magic exist.
While slowly adapting to the new world, both male leads form their own harems, including the tsundere girl, the maid girl, the aristocrat stereotype etc.
-main character gets stuck in another world
-meets a new girl who quickly beats up the main character
-Likable maid side character(some what a main character)
-Main character somewhat perverted
-Has a bit of ecchi
-Lives in a fantasy world(fantasy genre)
Both revolve around the MC getting put in fantasy world/dimension in place of their good ol' Japan.
The characters have to learn to adapt to their new locations. Both have issues with the cultural social differences in the new world.
Zero focuses a little bit on the new world getting accustomed to Earthly culture while Outbreak company focuses on it a lot more.
-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 :)
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.
Hataraku Maou-sama! and Outbreak Company both contain a ton of humor. Among some of these include its various anime references. The main characters in both series are also oblivious to certain simple things because they are not from the world they were once used to. However, they are able to adjust and even become friends with others that they encounter.
There is some action in both series although most of it is portrayed as comedic. The main male protagonists from both series are also somewhat similar in personality. However, their respective relationships with the main female characters from both series are very contrasting.
Both are as interesting as heck! The plot-lines are absolutely fantastic. The jokes really hit me hard while watching both series. Both stories take place where the earth has another realm, which is actually something that is especially unusual for comedy anime. The animes' endings have a superb overall aspect to them! I hope this is useful for everyone searching for good anime to watch! :)
Both anime are like the reverse version of each other.. they share the similar idea of how does it feel to live & work in another world. In Hataraku Maou-sama, the MCs went to human world and work in there, while in Outbreak Company the MCs went to the fantasy world for work purpose.
Ixion Saga DT and Outbreak Company both deal with a fantasy world in which characters are enlisted to help others. The main male protagonist is familiar with the otaku culture because of his own experiences.
There is a lot of parody and comedy going around both series. The main male protagonist also has odd fantasies regarding many characters on various occasions. There is some "action" but most of it is presented in a fun style rather than anything serious. Most of the episodes are also standalone rather than a linear arc.
similar situation where otaku is thrown to another world,but in Outbreak Company,there are more moe and fanservice.Don't expect the same comedy if you have watched IXDT,but if you prefer cute girls and fanservice i recommend Outbreak Company for you.
In both, the male lead enters into a new world which involves with a different form of language, magic, maids and a harem. Also both the female leads are cute, pretty, and have the ability to use magic to defeat the enemies.
Both are set in fantasy type worlds where the main characters are basically otakus. Even though Outbreak Company is definitely more light hearted, I feel they share the same type of comedic approach. Also, cue cutesy maids. Did I mention they both have adorable maids?! Seriously, Myucel and Rem, just, just thank you.
Similar series yet different. Jimon Asuta and Kanou Shinichi are voiced by the same seiyuu: Hanae Natsuki. Both dealing with magic and hilarious shenanigans. The main characters from both series are thrust into a situation that decides the fate of the world. In Outbreak Company, he must teach the people of Eldant the otaku way of life. Also many parodies from different anime can be seen/heard here. The other series he must serve a loli overlord who wants world conquest. The heroine from both series are very similar. They are small, white/blue/sliver hair, cute voice, leader of a group/kingdom and have taken interest in out main character.
The main male character gets involved and becomes part of a world that changes his life forever. They are the deciding factors and at the same time strikes an odd relationship with the main girl.
There are fantasy elements present in both series with bits of action. Comedy is mostly poked at fun with references and campaigns. Although the main female characters' personalities contrasts between the two series, they still do get along well with the main guy and is caring towards their friends.
Being brought to another world, meet up with cute girls, tumbs up for the series. Both series have a relaxing story. Outbreak Company got a nice atmosphere in the anime and Isekai wa Smartphone to tomo ni? give us a good magic adventure.
Otakuish main characters who find a job, somehow; similar type of fantasy, comedy and ecchi. Yuushibu takes place in a "contemporary" magical world with demons, while Outbreak Company goes medieval with elves and others magical creatures.
Both have a male lead who are relatively resistant against daily temptations from gorgeous ladies. These male leads reluctantly accept a job for work.
Both anime are set in a contemporary fantasy world, in which magic exists. Outbreak Company portrays a world of elves, dwarve..., while Yusibu paints a world with demons.
One tries to run a failing fantastical theme park set in the real world and involves the struggles there within. The other tries to sell the otaku culture to a fantastical world and involves the struggles there within. Anime babes. Trust me. These are very similar and the comedy is great.
In both, we have a protagonist suddenly plunged into a new environment, very different from where they live. Oda Nobuna no Yabou has the protagonist traveled back in time, in an alternate universe, while Outbreak Company has it's protagonist travel to a different fantasy world. In both, they are faced with very different social structures, and attempt to bring modern knowledge to the people around them, and in doing so, they end up with a very prominent role or position. They are both surrounded by abundant cute girls.
In essence, the main protagonist from both series unexpectingly becomes a resident of another world after one faithful day. To the other characters, he is quite different because of the place from where he came.
The main male protagonist plays central roles in various episodes while bringing forth his ideas from the modern world to help its residents. The main female protagonist from both series contrasts from each other but becomes attached to the mc as the series progresses as well as vice versa.
There is bits of action (more so in Oda Nobuna no Yabou) dealing with their perspective worlds and its conflicts.
In both shows there's a boy who gets transported into a fantasy world with lots of cute girls. Another similarities are that there are elf-like people, magic, maids and a loli princess who seems to develop some romantic feelings for the MC.
Both deal heavily with the otaku subculture. Both the main protagonists Aki and Shinnichi display great passion in the otaku industry and show others about it. In addition, both are harems. However, while Saekano is set in modern Japan and explores the creation of a dating sim sort of, Outbreak company is set in a medieval fantasy world with magic and mythical creatures.
When watching these shows, your Otaku meter might go on into critical levels as you find many references in each episode. Can you find and name them all? The series takes place in a fantasy world like setting, where it is filled with funny moments and filled with popular cultures (manga, anime, and games). The main characters mostly have fun in the fantasy world, but something awaits them, interfering their fun activities.
The difference is that Outbreak Company is somewhat political, a male lead, and based off a light novel. Neptunia is somewhat breaking the forth wall, an all female cast, and based off of a video game. read more
Both anime have pretty similar start where the MC woke up in another world. Both focused on MC's everyday life in that world. Both have harems (but Outbreak Company is better, since the MC is actually falling in love with one of the girls). In my opinion, Outbreak Company is better because the MC is not overpowered. So we don't expecting much from him.
both anime the MC are smart and good for making a strategy, but powerless physically. Surrounded by a bunch of cute and lovable girls (I am really a fan of this concept :D) If you want to enjoy your night, go have a marathon. enjoy!
The fantasy-prone inner-otaku just plunges right out as these series evoke the same dazzling desire for romance & adventure. Whether that familiar (but not identical) character design allures your interest; by similar direction and usage of comedy & fan-service, there are appealing aspects in these series for nearly every viewer.
Both involve guys who are taken from their homes and forced to teach people about a new lifestyle. Outbreak Company has the main character teach people in a fantasy world about the otaku culture, and shomin sample has the main character teach rich girls how commoners live.
Both anime revolve around the idea of trying to bridge a gap between different worlds.
In Outbreak Company, Shinichi-kun tries to reach the Holy Eldant Empire with the use of Japanese Otaku Culture, while Maou from Maoyuu Maou Yuusha tries to reach Earth (or the human realm) with economic ideas.
The main character from both series are teacher and otaku. Both of them use their otaku knowledge to help solve problems. One series takes place in a magical fantasy world and the other in the modern day world.
The theme of Genshiken Nidaime and Outbreak Company are peculiarly similar despite their contrasting settings. (one in the modern world while the other takes place in a fantasy realm). That theme involves the otaku culture where character embraces the hobby of watching anime, reading manga/light novels, and playing video games.
The main male protagonist from both series are a big fanatic of anime and manga. They have vast knowledge and often involves dialogues into their conversations.
Both series has enormously amount of comedy, drama, and a little bit of romance.
Similar episode structure, between one light hearted otaku character (or in Stony Cat's case, a pervert), and two moe love interests (both have a dominatrix loli character that is upset at the fact that the other female lead is always in the way). Things eventually get surprisingly serious, and the main character makes heavy developments beyond his simplistic and comedic introduction.
Both have main characters who believe that they can survive life with their knowledge of anime. Even though one fails (Watashi ga) and one does not (Outbreak Company), they are pretty similar character-wise. The main character has a fetish for anime girls/guys. The supporting characters come and go at times.
The main characters have different personalities but similar circumstances, having suffered a heart-wrenching rejection from their crush and having misgivings about getting their hopes up when it comes to romance.
