There's so many similarities between these two series! - Both series are very adventurous as each world or floor presents challenges the MCs have to overcome. - Both MC at the start of the series have a similar mission: to find someone important to them. And for that, they are willing to take grand risks. - Interesting world building - Great character relationships If you enjoyed HxH and are looking for similar vibe, Kami no Tou (Tower of God) is a great option.

Both originated from LINE Webtoons. They are both two of the most popular webtoon series currently on offer and therefore there is likely a huge crossover in the audience of both of these series. If you are big fan of one of these, it's definitely worth at least giving the other a try to see what all the fuss is about.

Both large mysterious worlds with great world building for their individual settings. Both have brave warriors who scale their respective challenges (tower/abyss). In TOG they ascend up the tower facing new challenges each floor. In Made in abyss they instead descend deeper into the abyss but again similarly face new challenges every new floor.

Both recent hit anime. Both have really good lovable characters with a wide range of creative designs. Both also have great art styles and OSTs.

DW and KNT both go on the list of shows with lots of potential that fell short. Like they literally seem unfinished. These are really interesting, dark shounen series with a survival game element. KNT walks into the conflict by choice. DW is forced into the conflict and struggles much more, especially emotionally. Both shows have a big group of interesting side characters, and some of their backstories will be explored. MCs have an opposite sex character who influences his life.

-Both of these titles include a plot which mainly involves ascending a huge tower to achieve something significant. -The main male protagonists are innocent, cheerful, and sweet but are then made to realize how much power they harbour within themselves. -If you enjoyed one, I highly recommend the other :)

Both very similar fantasy anime. The tower in TOG draws many parallels with dungeons in Magi. Both also have unique power systems.

Ascend the floors of hell to see the unknown top, MC seems to be a bit cool and a bit of an oddball, but still human

Both take place in worlds with a great deal mystery that the series explores. Both also have vocal minorities that love to complain about them, despite the series being huge successes. So if you've heard something bad about either one, they're both worth watching and making your own mind up on.

Both have many elements of mystery. Both have great art styles, characters and gorgeous character designs. Both also have classic OSTs and extremely lovable characters.

Both have floors/levels the characters ascend in hopes of reaching the top. Both have their characters battling/fighting their way through each floor.

Both involve the granting of wishes for those willing to risk everything by braving the tower/the life of a Mahou Shoujo.

If you enjoyed Darwin's game, you'll enjoy Tower of God; both anime's follow a main plot of having to 'break out of the boundaries', portrayed differently, however, both ultimately follow the same goal. In Darwin's game, the goal is to break out of Darwin's game, to enter the 4th wall essentially and win-over the system. In Tower of God; the goal is to become God itself, to climb to the top to then leave the tower and become an overruling power, thus obtaining anything you so desire. Both anime's are great, they both are animated well, with good openings and endings. Both 9-10/10

The protagonists of Oban Star Racers and Kami no Tou have the goal of getting their dream come true, which is granted by some sort of God. -In Oban Star Racers you get your wish granted if you win a race. -In Kami no Tou you get your wish granted if you get to the top of the tower.

Both are a brutal yet beautiful fantasy story that is set in an alternative, dystopian feeling world in a kinda isolated entity (you keep wondering for a while what its place in the greater picture might be). If you love to be taken on a fanciful trip with a lot of emotions, brave hearts, some misteries remaining, awesome animation and some events that leave you wondering a bit about life - this is for you. Yet they have different style, I'm pretty sure if you love one, you'll enjoy the other one, too.

Many combatants fighting each other with unique magical skills, abilities. Main protagonist is calm silent boy. There are students and teachers. I think both shows give similar vibes and are worth checking out.

Similarities - Both MCs compete in a life or death game to have their wish granted - Both MCs have typical shounen, optimistic, power of friendship personality traits - Both game world contestants are young teens Differences - Tower of god is a literal tower with floors vs. AOTU game has game worlds - AOTU world is a chinese CGI donghua vs. Tower of god is a webtoon based, 2D japanese anime

I noticed a lot of similarities between these two shows due to the mystery and splatter present in both. Both protagonists are external to the context and are catapulted into a world they know nothing about. Unfortunately these two titles have a confusing and unclear storyline and also both have an unhelpful protagonist supported by people doing everything for him.

In my opinion, there is a lot in common with these two series far away. Both speak about a tower that can grant a desire. Druaga no Tou like to be darker than Kami no Tou, but both are similar. I think that both are good series if you like a little mystery, action, and romance. I enjoyed both a lot, and I think that if you have free times, it can be a good choice

Danganropa And tower of god Both same Theme play or die, PvP, And High Stakes Games

Although at first sight, you may think this is crazy as a similar recommendation. Both MC's start at the bottom. Both MC's initially are seen as worthless and weak by comparison to others. Both MC's are irregular to the standard population. Both MC's climb to a position where they have friends. Both MC's have ultimately a love interest that is unobtainable in the long run that causes them to make deep set choices. Both MC's struggle with the interacts with people due to a lack of initial societal interactions.

Both anime with great world building but with a great deal of mystery surrounding their worlds. Both have very lovable characters that it's great to root for in their perils.

The dungeons that appear and grant those who scale them power is very similar to the tower that grants those who scale it whatever they desire. Both have great world building, OSTs, art styles and characters.

Both similar fantasy series. There are similarities between Magi's Dungeons and Tower of God's tower. They also have extremely powerful/op main characters but the series take place when the character is younger and has that potential but is still not fully matured.

Both recent "crunchy roll original" adapted massively popular webtoons. They share a lot of the same flaws, strengths and appeal. Both have really lovable characters with great character designs and world building.

In both these series external powers grant the whims of someone who accepts the cost/risk. Both also have great yet unusual soundtracks.

Characters taking challenge of climbing dangerous Tower. Smart and mysterious partner? Deep world building? Both seem to have long stories. Tower of god seems to have the higher chance of reaching the end of its story compared to HxH. xD

Both involve clueless (as in how powerful they truly are) lead characters. Princesses remind me of Deities.
