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
Both are stories about people playing an mmo online. In Net-Juu, both mc's use the opposite gender and start to fall in love with each other in the game. In Netoge no Yome, the male mc confesses to a girl in a game and she tells him that she is actually a boy in real life.
They are two animes in which the protagonist plays a game online and is a "NEET", in both animes the protagonist enters a Guild and interacts with her, in both appears a special person in which creates an additional climate, are not two great animes but are good to pass the time if you like animes about online games and a light romance.
These two anime's focus on the romance side of gaming as two characters try to balance out their relationship irl as well as their gaming lives. They both have hilarious comedy, interesting characters and some sweet moments to go with them.
Net-juu is basically NetoYome but:
- Club room
- Married couple in game
= Struggling in real life
= MMORPG~Real life setting
= That rich MMORPG casher character
= Trying to recover RL from game
+ Reverse Harem
+ Character are adults
+ Character evolution
These anime shows the characters what they do in-game while playing MMORPGs in the point of view from the virtual game world and what they also do in real life. These also show the sides of their personalities of the real life and in-game world and their relationships to other characters between two worlds.
Very similar classical romance anime (with a modern and cute MMO twist!) about working adults that aren't entirely content with their lives. Like with Net-juu, these adults take on different faces of a new life, in this case a program that turns them into highschoolers again, and stumble into romance along the way through a lot of coincidence. They then have to figure out how to make a relationship work despite all these hurdles and help each other grow as individuals.
Both are rather stereotypical and clichéd setups, but are pretty well executed and always left me smiling at the end of every episode.
Both these two anime series revolve around an adult who decided to quit their respective jobs and become a 'NEET'.
An event occurs that causes them to change how they interact with other people.
They both contain the genre Romance, hinting at the fact that they meet someone special due to that particular event.
The mc in both shows are having a problem with their job
Both shows are about recovery of the mc in new society (online game in Net-juu no Susume and school in ReLIFE) where they get some very nice friends
Both tackles in the premise of the life of gamers. Net-juu is the grown-up version of Gamers!. Both have a likable romance going on (Well, Net-juu takes on romance is goddamn slow but still it takes it nonetheless). If Gamers! is all about a misunderstanding, then Net-juu is all about a coincidence.
Being an introverted hikikomori isn't that bad! Sit all day playing video games, doing nothing, while slowly dying inside... Unlike Net-juu no Susume, WataMote isn't really a romance, but still both feel similar & ARE similar. Both have female leads that are damn anti-social, and struggle doing anything, especially talking with boys... While in WataMote the comedy is darker, I think both fit a lot.
Adults Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET) is the primary link between these two series. They both deal with identity issues, self-deprecation, and reliance on others for happiness but have a very different take on how to approach these sensitive topics. NHK ni Youkoso has much darker themes but at the core of both is a story about companionship and love between two damaged people, forging new memories and forgiving old regrets that have molded them into the isolated people they've become and transforming them into the people they will be.
These two are entirely different shows, both in content and direction, but they both fundamentally pivot around the idea of adults who become shut-ins due to the stresses of life. Watch if you like the topic, do not watch expecting the same sort of feels.
Both Satou and Moriko are NEETs are that only get out of their houses when necessary. They also have issues to socialize.
Net-juu no Susume is practicallly a comedy while Welcome to the NHK is a more realistic and depressing approach on the subject. If you liked Net-juu no Susume you'll definitely like NHK even more.
Both have very similar female leads and great love stories! Both are about overcoming yourself and your past and becoming more confident. They also have similar color schemes and just overall, it's a great show to put on after this one if you want something that's gonna give you the same good feeling! :)
Both MC meets and likes each other in a game then later meets in the real world. In Btooom, the storyline is dark and it is a survival game while in Net-juu the storyline is funny. The romance is well presented in both series (game and real world alike).
Entirely different tone, but both shows are about 30+ year old office workers who find joy by escaping the real world to a fantasy one. Of course, K&M sends him to a real world, and Recovery is only a video game, but this idea of learning how to happily socialize in an escapist scenario is present in both.
Well, at first glance this recommendation seems a little strange but it is not as farfetched as it might seems.
First of all in both anime special attention is given to the character and development, based on the personal life stories.
"Netojuu no Susume" does appear a little more Ladylike due to a female main character and involving a lot of emotions. However, in both anime the game play is not focused, but on the other hand the characterization based on interaction and the ongoing plot is done pretty well, without being too predictable.
To me these shows appear like representing two sides of the same coin. Both take look at the benefits and disadvantages of online games, on the one hand a pro-player who starts struggling his way back to the top and on the other hand a woman trying to re-discover the feeling for the beauty of life.
I enjoyed both shows.
I consider the style of comedy in this to be very similar. The comedy is derived less from the content of the joke, than it is from the execution (Timing, voice acting and facial expressions)
BTW: I recommend the dub for both, although I especially do in the case of Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun (It's one of my top dub recommendations, because the sub isn't funny. I suspect it's the same for Net-juu no Susume but I can't know for sure)
Both of these shows are stories centered around adults. Although Nodame is about musicians and Net-juu no Susume is about online gamers, what makes these shows similar is the way the shows are focused on the daily life of adults. How the characters' passions, careers, relationships, etc, all intertwine. These shows are both surprisingly funny as well.
Both series are similiar love comedy genres, both also have similar plots, and both heroine also have almost identical personalities (equally clumsy, lacking in self-confidence, having problems with social life, over-exaggerating and often self-demeaning , and have the same seiyuu as well). The difference thing here is that Sawako wants to go "out" of the box, while Morioka wants to go "inside" the box.
The "hidden/unknown" romance aspect of both titles is very similar. Characters get to know each other in an unconventional way unbeknownst to them. The sets of main characters from each title have a sad/serious backstory as well.
Sweet, light-hearted romantic comedies with relatable characters and a couple (or couples!) that you just want to root for. Both of these shows will warm your heart and leave you with a smile on your face.
