Both anime are about the social aspects of playing online games, and feature romance and crossplay. Netoge no Yome is about schoolchildren, but Net-juu is about adults, so take of that what you will.

These two series are extremely similar but they explore different 'adventures'. Same tags, same type of story but with a different execution.

School club based shows centered on a delusional girl who can't distinguish real life and fiction, or rather can't get over her fantasies. Both are also kind of a supporting harem, where our main guy is surrounded by other girls but we all already know the "main girl" he will probably end up in the end.

Both have the comedy side to that fantasyworld theme Cool characters + we have a tsuntsun in Netoge

Both titles: - are novel adaptation - are harem/romance/comedy/school/slice of life genre witch ecchi elements - include scenes from perspective of character's video game avatar's - one way or another include gender bending ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) - have quite similiar cast like girl with social problems and an popular otaku kamidere - in both shows characters are forming particular club

The main similarity shared between the two anime is the theme of "Love." In both anime, the lead female character loves the leading male protagonist so much. With this, it makes them seem as a stalker/yandere... which is true (It's obviously true in Mirai Nikki as she killed people for the leading male while the leading female in Netoge No Yome acts like one, but never actually kills a person). "At first, the leading male doesn't care much for her, in fact he views her more of a creep. But over time, he tends to like her more and more." This is true for both anime. So  read more

Both anime feature a female otaku forming a romantic bond with a male they meet through their hobby. Both stories feature one guy surrounded by many girls, but both romance stories end conclusively. Both have copious amounts of fanservice. Though it takes until season 2 for Nogizaka Haruka, there's an extremely similar "vow of love" scene in both of these anime. In my opinion, both are underwatched.

Both anime's seem to have a strong focus on the male and female protagonist both have the theme of online gaming but if i had to choose one over the other I would have to go with netoge

Just take a look at Ako and mother and Touwa and her mother, you'll get it. Besides that main protagonist girl have lot of similarities.

Netoge and Konobi are romcoms revolving on otaku characters in a hobby club (gaming and art respectively). A lot of the comedy comes from the otaku weirding out the non-otaku love interest and their friends' antics, both in helping them get together and otherwise. Konobi has better production values, but both series are worth considering watching if one enjoys the other or romcoms involving otaku characters.

It's Otakus dealing with reality, and not to mention Kawaii girls! Both shows are very enjoyable to watch just for fun, nothing more nothing less!

Both themes of having to balance otaku and real life are prevalent in both anime. Also, some lighthearted jabs at otaku culture are present.

The MCs are gamers. They have their own place to play games. They know each other in real life so they formed a club.

Hilarious moments, too many female characters.

These are similar in the simple way that both of them have a group of kids that all have a club, and often spend time working together to become stronger, or to control their abilities. They mostly have a very similar feel, although Inou-Battle has a harem dynamic, while Netoge has one main "couple". I would for sure recommend to watch one if you like the other.

The MC in both shows is a loner. He joins a club in which he is the only boy. The number of girls keep increasing. Success!!

Let's start off with the commonalities and what is better to begin than the obvious? Both are romance-comedies. They both have a similar style of comedy and to me, both are really funny. The romance in both animes are also alike as at the beginning of both (regards Sorata and Mashiro), it is not quite properly one-sided (as there are feelings but its not really love) but deeper feeling develop throughout the series and eventually turns into both parties admitting, ish. Also in both animes, the main heroine lacks common sense and relies on the hero. However, the way Ako relies on Hideki is different  read more

It has a similar harem feel, where the main character is surrounded by cute girls (though in the MMORPG game they play together 2 of the girls hide themselves as men).

They are both based on a video game Cute girls that match a lot of similar tropes both are comedic 
report Recommended by Spoonmaster12
Both are high school romance anime in which one of the leads is a shut-in who hates "normies" and has little to no social life, while the other is more well adjusted. The notable difference is that in 3D GF the guy is the shut-in, while in Netoge no Yome it's the girl. Netoge no Yome also has much more fanservice.

School clubs about games Harem ish Same type of girls (Busty boss, flat tsundere, airhead) Art style is very similar D Frag is a bit funnier than Netoge imo.

Both animes have in common the fact that their ingame dear friend/associate ends up turning out to be a classmate and that eventually changes their lives for the better after meeting offline! Both animes also have in common game-wiz type character that is really good at games!

Netoge no Yome and Okaasan Online are anime with game related themes. In Netoge no Yome, they play online games as their club activities. While in Okaasan Online, they get into the game world to complete their missions. Despite having different settings, Netoge no Yome gives us the perspective of the characters played in the game, so it's like they entered the game world as well. Some of the characters are similar too. Masato = Rusian (they have similar personality) Mamako = Ako (your waifu of the season, and also have similar personality) Wise = Schwein (the twin tails tsundere) If you liked one, you might like the other.

Let's just say this, SAO(2) and Konosuba(3) had a Baby That Was Born Today Named "Netoge no Yome wa Onnanoko ja Nai to Omotta?"(1) (Or Net Game in English tho.) And Net Game had 4 more Brothers and Sisters. That being: (4)DanMachi (5)Phantasy Star Online 2 The Animation (6)No Game No Life (7)The Devil is a Part-Timer! Alright with that said let's start with the Similarities Shall we? 1,2,3,5, And 6:All 5 of them are Based on a Game-Like World. (DanMachi Doesn't Really Count since us not base on a Video Game tho.) 1,2,3,4, And 6:The Main Characters from Each Show have a Harem. 1,3, And 7:Are Very Funny and Have Similar Humours  read more

they both have a girl struggling to deal with reality so use non existenct things to deal with it as their friends try to help along with romance adding to the difficulty

Well, aside from the fact that both have the same settings, harem, and cyberpunk, it both also has that girl going after boy, but on a character level, the guy in Phantasy star as an achiever while the guy in was more of a loser/otaku, in other areas, the girl looking for the boy in phantsy is an avatar that came to life while the girl from Netoge was very much nuts. Can I say that?
