Both anime pull legendary heroes (Fate takes those from world history and lore while Re:Creaters takes those from otaku media) from other worlds into one and seemingly duke it out with each other.

Both have main characters crossing worlds and being confused about it. Re:Creators has a really original premise: fantasy chars appear in modern Tokyo, not knowing they were watched by Otaku as anime/game characters, and now have an opportunity to find their writers and animators and beat them to a pulp if they want; one young otaku gets an accidental prime spot as an improvised "Japanese host" for the girls (after some sketchy events ofc), then a plot appears and there are fights between those characters everywhere! Gate has the Japanese SDF cross a gate to a fantasy world, face its armies and after that goof around trying  read more

Basically the only anime close enogh to give you what Re:CREATORS is doing.Both are great underrated gems (especially Re:CREATORS) which focus on the creation and impact of stories. Recommend both mostly to artists and writers (creators basically lol). You can think of Shirobako as a spiritual prequel to Re:CREATORS as Re:CREATORS explores in a fresh new way (with the bonus of really cool action scenes...which I know aren't the focus..but an epic addition nonetheless..not to mention it's META AF damn!) Attention to detail is key as well. If you catch onto info quickly, you'll have a blast

Stories in which beings and heroes from fictitious media are brought or summoned into the real world.

Same scenario but flipped. Normal person is sent to fantasy world. Conflict drama and a varying amount of true seriousness with humor.

Both series are about... characters from different universes united in a world, where they fight each other. The only difference is that one has a darker theme (...right?), gory and includes real people that once existed on this planet such as Nobunaga Oda and Joan of Arc, the other has fictional characters from TV series, mangas and games.

- creatures made by humans appear in the real world - main character is also creating a character, who is also getting real - main character fights against the "evil" creatures, because they wan't to destroy the real world (the world of their creators)

Okay this one is a kinda strange bridge that I didn't realized previously, but both are about fantasy characters summoned to the real world and having to deal with the consequences of how the real world effects them. They're very different in tone. Re:Creators is a drama battle, while Devil is a Part-Timer is a fall from grace comedy. Emy and Selestia also have kinda similar character design, but Selestia luckily definitely isn't a tsudere.

Both Re:Creators and Fate/Stay Night UBW are about people summoning important figures from history/literature into the real world, where they fight each other. Both follow a story of a highschool boy who accidentally meets one of the important figures (Saber/Selesia).

Both of these shows explore the nature of storytelling and the relationship between the creator and the created, with self-aware writing and meta use of character tropes.

If you like Izaya you will like this show. Megane is very similar to Izaya, but eviler and with magic that involves manipulating people with her words. AKA so much worse for those against her. Like Izaya she loves all humans though. In this character comparison Alicetaria is Shizou, which fits but minus shipping. Great huge cast all bouncing off of each other trying to not destroy or destroy the city!

The reality for some might not be holding all the truth, that is the premise of both manga. Either madoka or re:creators show to the public a different kind of history involving mahou shoujo. The only thing important to mention is that in re: creators the mahou shoujo plot is well developed but it still is only a small portion of the main theme presented.

- several heroes from history (F/A)/games, anime and PVs (RC) got spawned in the real world and must fight - heroes are divided into 2 major teams - similar fighting systems; involving magic and sword combat

A group of strong characters from different places gathered in one place. They're not familiar with each other, but they have the same goal (to defeat the Demon god in Rokka no Yuusha/to find the creators in Re:Creators). But, instead of achieving their goal, they just fight each other to prove that they're on the right side.

One of the main character for Re:Creators, Selestia is loosely based off Asuna from SAO. Re:Creators is a brilliant battle between copyright safe versions of anime characters from different genre. Its awesome. Selestia has a true fantasy backstory and is more mature than Asuna. But if you loved Asuna and want to see a show where her character type really shines check out RE:Creators and if you somehow haven't seen SAO and want to know Setsuna's base character watch the first half of SAO.
