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 anime are about the social aspects of playing online games, and feature romance and crossplay. Netoge no Yome is about schoolchildren, but Net-juu is about adults, so take of that what you will.

Both series feature adult characters living under assumed identities while dealing with work pressures and life in general.

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.

Both are about gamers with a combination of romantic comedy.

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.

Both series are from an older perspective of daily life, with a splash of romance thrown in. Definitely a relatable and easy watch.

Adult (and cute) woman playing videogames.

Both are chill romance series staring adult, female characters and some crossdressing.

Relationship with socially awkward people

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  read more

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.

Both are related with mmo games. The main character of Net-juu Susume low key wants to have the life the Log Horizon characters have.

The anime has similar situation in which the protagonist somewhat stuck in a game world. Also part of a "Slice of Life".

both animes had a otaku playing game, Ixion have a strong male lead and the other have a very funny female Mc.

They're both funny in an almost ironic way. They both have a NEET as one of the main characters. The world where Kazuma goes to is based off a game system.

With similar situation where the girl is a shut-in (don't know if the spell is right). Can't write well because Sasami-san@ganbaranai is wierdly-cool for some unknown reason.

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).

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.

Although Hamefura is an Isekai and Net-juu isn't, both anime revolve around games and have a kind-hearted, cute and funny otaku main character. The overall vibe that feature funny and healing moments is there, as is the romance. In Net-juu the MC pretends to be somebody that she's not (pretending to be a boy when she's actually a girl) and in Hamefura the MC ends up in the body of a villainess, which she totally isn't). Those girls have to deal with this other identity in their different ways.

Both are about people who love playing online games where they end up finding their love interests and also eventually meeting their real life counterparts.

same character who loves the game world more than reality one

Similar cozy vibe between both series. Both star female characters hard on their luck meeting up with new people. Both series are very cute.  
report Recommended by gum_rummy
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.

Both involvers certain characters who gave up their very promising careers for a very pathetic lifestyle in gaming........where they both don't give a thing about their future.

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. 
report Recommended by Neko-Hoshishima
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.

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)
