Conceived by the same author, both titles feature realised virtual worlds in which most of the narrative transpire within. Both titles are also action-oriented.

Gantz is a death game where people are forced to to kill. So the premise is similar, although the setting is completely different. One is fantasy, while the other is sci fi. being a game, SOA doesnt have any actual gore, while Gantz is more mature with both gore, and mature content. If you like one, you might enjoy the other if you want to feed on some misery in different forms.

Both have similar feel as a dark reality of death that hang over the peaceful lives of the characters. The protagonist in SAO is also very similar to layfon as they are both socially awkward, are self-critisizing, have a dark haunting past, and extrememly overpowerly strong.

The narratives of these two titles are set within virtual worlds in which characters interact with others as well as engage in combat.

Game-Like Sword art online about people who get stuck in a game. Dungeon about people living, fighting in dungeons drinking potions buying weapons like a game

Both players are in an online world that is like reality. 
reportRecommended by Ksiousha
Both of these titles situate characters in a "game" with realistic consequences, both in the present and the future.
