They are romantic comedies about adult otakus falling in love. While in Net-Juu its mainly about game otakus, while in WnKwM you'll find a fujoshi, a cosplayer, a gamer. If you enjoy one, you'll probably enjoy the other.

similarities: - main characters look alike (appearance-wise): a pink haired girl and a dark blue haired boy wearing glasses - both anime depict love with otaku characters - they're both a light romantic comedy - The female MC is outspoken and an extrovert while the male MC is quiet and an introvert differences: - 3d Kanojo is set in high school (it's a shoujo) and Wotaku ni Koi is set in a workplace (it's a josei) - in 3d Kanojo only the boy is an otaku but in Wotaku ni Koi all the main characters are otakus - in Wotaku ni Koi there are 2 couples instead of just one - 3d Kanojo deals  read more

Both portray love and friendship and have lovely characters . Office work environment. Both anime are romantic comedies. Both have a similar overall feel, are light-hearted, funny and cute.

I get a similar feeling when i watch wotaku, how the characters act, the humor, the music, the artstyle. so if you enjoyed nozaki-kun you will definitely love this show!

Well if you like anime that focus on a group of people that like video games and stuff then both of these shows work. Wotakoi is a more mature romance with like, actual adults. Gamers is set in high school and uses the character's screwed up relationships and misunderstandings as its main source of comedy. If you want shows with a likable cast, above average comedy and nerdiness then both of these shows are worth checking out imo

Both take place in an office job with characters in their mid 20's. Both also have a somewhat relaxing atmosphere and off beat comedy.

Wholesome non-toxic romance! People dating from the start of the show! Actually talking through problems! No manipulative nonsense! Humour not based around cruelly making fun of people! Healthy friendships as well as romantic relationships! Wholesome shoujo rom-coms light on the melodrama are not easy to find.

Not similar in : music sounds art style or even as a romance story they are similar in the characters exactly in the characters Kabakura and Koyanagi they got the same personalty as a couples just like Fujeta and Chinatsu when they were a team

I think it is the same genre and is similar from the structure and characters

Otakus, who know more of anime romance than actual romance, falling in love - or having people falling for them. Those are shows about otakus that find out what the feeling of love is like. In Love Stage the love blooms between two boys, and in Wotakoi, between a boy and a girl. The comedy of the shows are really similar as well, and the side characters relationship are equally cute as the main one's.

In contrast to all the characters in this show who are office workers and otakus, Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken focuses on the relationship between an otaku husband, and his working office wife. The shows are similar thematically. Both shows explore relationships in a comedic light showing the transition of the character/s as otakus into young professionals, how they maintain their old and new identities, and the meanings of growing up. Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii fits a standard 25 minute slot, whereas Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken is a 3 minute per episode slice of life based  read more

Wotaku and Osake both revolve around working adults and how they interact in private. In Wotaku, the MCs are connected by their love for gaming and anime. In Osake, the husband and wife are connected by their passion for alcoholic beverages. The tone of these two anime are not the same but they do feel similar. They both deal with adult situations and relationships without really delving into the usual ecchi territory. Even though there is some typical charactization tropes and suggestions, there is a sense of maturity to their interactions.

Both series are romantic comedy anime in Spring 2018. Each series has potential to provide multiple couple. And male main character from both series are calm person and quiet man.

Both are Slice of life, romantic comedies, with a rather mature cast of characters that hangs out together and falls in love.

Both are lighthearted romantic comedies with lovable characters.

Kobayashi is fantastic while Wotaku is above average. Both shows are exciting departures from genre tropes. Kobayashi is slice of life from an adult perspective (still lots of moe though), while Wotaku is an adult rom-com where the relationship begins in episode 1 (and is free of any nonsense drama). In both the way that the adult relationships are handled result in heartwarming moments

Both are romance shows that explore the relationship rather than going through journey of getting the characters to become a couple.

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!
