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.
Both are primarily about the lives of adult otaku. While Wotakoi delves more into the romance side of things; MMO Junkie is more about the MC trying to be more social and make new friends with the POWER OF VIDEO GAMES!
While the setting is exactly the opposite (romance on the workplace between flashy, otaku characters vs. romance online between more grounded-up characters), the two shows share a lot.
Especially strong in both the theme of balancing real life and the "otaku hobbies" such as videogames, manga, anime, cosplay and so on.
Both shows deal with Otaku life/culture while focusing on romance as a subplot. Wotaku focuses more on the general otaku life style (manga/anime, games, doujinshi, etc) while Net-juu focuses more on the mmorpg style
- 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
- 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 with drama too, while Wotaku ni Koi prefers to focus on the comedy
- Personally, I like Wotaku ni Koi better read more
Both series are romcoms with otaku Mcs in a relationship but 3D Kanojo: Real Girl? has a high school setting while Wotaku no Koi wa Muzukashii mostly takes place at an office so subsequently the characters are older and more mature.
Similar otaku protagonist, although in Wotaku both of them are otakus. Overall, I'd say that the story structure is similar, with a different feel, because it isn't a Josei. I'm sure you'd find it enjoyable as well though.
These two anime are both very similar because:
- The female main characters are fujoshis
- Both anime are centered around romance
- They both have lots of references to other video games/anime
- The secondary females are crossplayers.
Both shows have a female main character who is a fujoshi/otaku and their obsession with anime and BL (Boys Love). Both shows have cosplayers, otaku-related things and handsome male main characters in common. Also both shows have little bit of a light-hearted romance and is more on the comedy side.
Office comedy and romance. Light on the standard romance cliches, but not to say there's aren't any.
One of those rare slice-of-life shows about adults who act more or less like adults rather than over-grown children.
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
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 :
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
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 on the 4-koma manga.  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.
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
