similar setting although hai to gensou no grimgar is more drama oriented and struggles more in the new environment.

Both series have a similar start and both remember more the way to play an MMORPG game where the character has to evolve to be stronger when uses abilities and arms. The protagonists are misunderstood!

- Human MC transported to new world - Both MCs are complex and impactful characters - Both MCs must undergo their lives as the "villain" - Both MCs are wicked and dark with their approach towards others. - Both shows have the element of an MMO/RPG world

The same anime with an Isekai theme, that has action, fantasy and magic, but SAO was more like of a cyberpunk where guy is attached to a virtual world, while in Tate the guy is in some kind of other world where he has to survive in reality.

Both shows focus on money and merchanting also most main girls have anime ears. While shield also has an other world fight thing going spice and wolf is more focused on the merchant economic side.

They have the same storyline theme isekai, not only that both of these series have in common that the main characters are called not by a trivial reason they are called to another world to get things done (being heroes), they also take the storyline in the kingdom where slavery is a natural thing.

MCs from both series are filled with resentment and hatred as a result of them being ostracised. They are rude and unapproachable young men who have their own way of doing things and seeing the world around them. And yet, they are both dependable and (deep inside) kind, so they help people around them.

-Both involve the protagonist being transported to a similar type of fantasy world, in terms of magic, architecture, etc. -Both protagonists quickly realize that this isn't the fantasy world they dreamed of through betrayal and tragic events -Both have a large cast of similar female characters -Both protagonists will 'save' these females in one way or another causing a friendship or in some cases attraction to develop from the female's side

Main characters main a shield and are treated as outcasts. In both show the main character have to form parties.

The main character starts weak in the world of the storyline. At the same time, both are finding companions to join their journey and become the reason to get stronger.  
report Recommended by Ciesto
Both MCs are outcasted by those they trusted and then after become OP badasses. 
report Recommended by Demonic_Nemesis
Both animes are about the heroes that are misunderstood. The MCs are despised and claimed worthless by fellow heroes and by the general public despite being the most capable amongst their comrades. Naofumi is the only one having the right attitude and understanding of their mission while Saitama is Just OP. Both meet several trusted allies or friends who deeply respect them. 
report Recommended by JustEugene
- Main protag sent to another world - Initially misunderstood - 2 girls to follow around with MC - Game-like mechanics (RPG fantasy) - Slaves as an early driving factor (less mentioned later) One standing difference is that Diablo is very strong from the beginning while Naofumi starts off with nothing, to get stronger later throughout the series. Different personalities as well.
