Unlike most fantasy anime, both shows present realistic/raw thoughts and emotions of the characters who find themselves thrown into an unfamiliar fantasy setting. Both shows also possess darker themes and as such would more likely be appreciated by a more mature audience.

Pilot episodes similar with a group of innocent people and violence. -They both have bloody violence in a fantasy setting, with Goblin slayer's being more traditional with guilds and adventurers. -They are made by the same animation studio - White Fox Would recommend both if you are looking for an entertaining violent anime. Don't watch with the intent of getting invested in the characters/story.

Similar genres and art style , both main characters slay monsters to earn money , but Goblin Slayer is more brutal and bloody .

I'm surprised im the first one who made this suggestion. Goblin Slayer is so much like Berserk. Just like Berserk, this is another Brutal, Dark fantasy with Blood, gore, rape, and a pretty cruel world. The leads are also very similar in the way that they are both are ruthless and motivated by revenge. They both show no mercy to their enemies and both have a very dark past. They are also not that good at socializing with others. There are more examples that i will edit once more episodes come out.

In both, the story takes place in a heroic fantasy type world, and is centered around monsters. The two MCs are very similar: they're overpowered, have dubious morals, and their real face is never shown. They also both help people for their own benefits. Then, they have a group of girls who swoon over them, but never took interest in it. Because of that, expect some gud fan service. also woah violence

If you like Goblin slayer you will probably like Berserk as well. Both have some pretty dark moments and are basically about combating evil. The main characters are both clad in armor and both let there fighting do the talking. While you may start watching berserk and notice that Guts is not as scarred as Goblin Slayer, I would just say watch the first season and then you will see where I am coming from. Without trying to spoil berserk in any way I will just say that by berserk season 2, Guts is a lot more like Goblin slayer in many ways. If you have  read more

Both feature MCs that want to eliminate the monsters that have been terrorizing people. Goblin Slayer being Goblins Attack on Titan being Titans

Both shows have got a simple minded male MC. Their social skills aren't the best but they have the charisma to make them the leaders of their group. Also, both shows are dark and have got a lot of gore.

Both shows feature very cautious heroes who win through being prepared and not fighting "fair". Goblin Slayer is less OP and there is less comedy, but the serious scenes in Shinchou Yuusha are reminiscent of Goblin Slayer.

1. You can find goblins in both 2. The MC is overpowered 3. Races and classes seem pretty familiar to me BUT 1. Tensei shitara Slime Datta Ken is an Isekai while Goblin Slayer is not 2. Reincarnated as a slime seems more of a comedy than a drama (I mean aside from the fight between demon lord and Rimuru, I didn't see any dramatic moments, meanwhile Goblin Slayer is more deep, dark anime, we all remember that scene from ep 1) 3. Smashable Goblins (When you say Goblin Slayer you mean rape, ugly goblins, etc. Meanwhile when you say Reincarnated as a Slime you mean waifu goblins that are actually  read more

While the settings for these shows are different, they both have a similar tone and content to them. Both of these anime have an anti hero main character that kills monsters. They are also horror anime filled with blood and guts. I recommended both of these shows for anyone who likes anime with a dark atmosphere to them.

Both are adventure anime with focus more on the action rather than the character development or personalities. Both are fast paced, have good character designs, and good animation.

If you loved Goblin Slayer's seriousness and all-out violence, take the next step out of a fantasy world and into the ruthless world of a Samurai's life in 1600's Japan. Our main character in Shigurui is just as stoic, merciless, and relentless as Goblin Slayer, and the animation is even more gruesome. This anime takes a step up in maturity- and not just in rating. This anime is historical and as realistic as most anime get. Although much older than Goblin Slayer, the detail put into this anime is intricate, the animation, blood-curdling, and the story, much more toned for a older audience. If you've  read more

-their similar ranking of hunters (adventurers in GS / Demon slayers in KNY) 10 ranks in both . -they are both about the protagonist hunting monsters as in demons or goblins for killing their loved ones. -even the names are similar (Goblin / Demon ) Slayer :) -Goblin slayer is more gruesome and gory than Demon slayer , but they are both not that disturbing if u ask me. all in all if u liked demon slayer i definetely recommend checking out goblin slayer ....

Similar type action and story line except this one has a harem

Both high fantasy shows with interesting premises and worldbuilding, as well a beautiful and cutesy artstyle that hides darker undertones and gorier scenes.

-Both are set in a fantasy world -Both have lots of killing involved -Both are made by White Fox Re:Zero has a better story in my opinion. Both are enjoyable to watch

Both are dark fantasy anime with lots of violence, blood and gore. Both have a dark and moody feeling to them. They both have a character that hunts and kills super natural enemies. If you like one, you should the other as well.

Both main characters are the silent and strong type Both are determined to meet their end goal no matter how many times they fail without rest Lots of gore Involves demons

both main characters slay things  
report Recommended by CrownlessHero
Both shows show how a bad fantasy RPG campaign looks like, but for different reasons. Chaos Dragon has some bad players (Urobutcher is not alone in this one), while Goblin Slayer would have one of the worst GM imaginable who promptly goes down the list of things not to do.

Both series has a dark and medieval setting Both have an Elf and similar figures like Dwarves in it.

How is there no rec for Goblin Slayer? Besides the very infamous "Rape" scene and goblin killing present in both. Here are other similarities - An adventure, and good action to defeat the (bad guys/goblins) - Scenes where male MC fights to save or rescue a girl (Happens on many occassions, Alice, Asuna, Selka, Tiese, Ronie, Priestess, unknown elf and Cow Girl) - Medieval town setting with ranks and statuses (Knights, nobles, commoner, adventurers) - Male MC wields a distinct, powerful sword, has some "formidable skills, a finishing attack" and is strong - Male MC won't let past mistake and regret happen again, fights on and won't subject to the world  read more

There is one interesting aspect to both of those series that not much anime have - the characters have no names and instead are referred by name of their job/specialization. For example Hero, Priestess, Female Knight, Witch, you get the idea.

Both feature a girl with green hair, pointy ears, voiced by Nao Toyama.

Both series turn their genres on their heads. Shiled Hero, is NOT your typical cookie cutter generic Isekai anime in the same way: Goblin Slayer, is NOT your average fantasy anime with some unexpected twists

In both anime you got a strong character who is fighting their enemies, but also with an interesting background. 
report Recommended by togarasi
Same type of "dumb fun." If you're in the mood for an action series that places more emphasis on violence, gore, and (some) fanservice over a well-written story or characters, then either of these series should do the trick.

While these two have a different setting to them, they both have a similar vibe. Both anime are filled with action, violence, blood and gore. Both have a dark and moody feeling to them. If you like one, you should the other as well.
