It comes as no surprise that the environment and concept of these two series are analogous to one and another. Having the same protagonist voice actor in these two series undoubtedly strengthens the momentum going forward.

'Sword Art Online' and 'Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka Similar' focus heavily on game systems, leveling and battle strategies. Through layers of boss flooring that increased in difficulty as you progress further which is accompanied by rewards, it is something that is welcomed by fans who has a certain connection with gaming. By all means, the comedy and romance are there to provide   read more

Love ridiculously over powered MCs? Then these are for you.

Both Belle and Kirito are extremely over powered characters who can pretty much dominate anyone with one finger. Don't agree? Watch it till the end. Not to mention ridiculous number of girls they attract by doing nothing. Welcome to never ending harems.

Both are set in a game type of environment. SAO is set inside a real game while Dungeon is set in alternative universe that is very similar to RPG game.

Main difference, Dungeon has a proper, linear story with some solid character developments unlike SAO that skips years of   read more

Similar system used by both shows, similar leveling and 'floors' in both shows. The main character also has the same voice actor in both shows. Both shows share a similar theme and fundamentals. SAO is based in current day and age whereas Dungeon is actually placed in a fantasy setting versus a virtual fantasy.

Both shows are very similar in its settings, in which the story takes place in a RPG like world. Adventurers/players must clear NPC with their party in each floor in order to go up. The premise differ in that while SAO takes place in a virtual reality of gaming going wrong, Characters in Dunmachi lives in the fantasy world to begin with.

The universes each anime is set in deal with RPG game elements, such as finding treasure, gaining new abilities, and fighting bosses. Both anime have a simple main characters who ends up being one of the most powerful characters towards the end. For both anime, the main characters also effortlessly build up their harem which is always fun to watch.

Dungeon Ni Deai Wo Motomeru No Wa Machigatteiru Darou Ka? shares a lot of similar concepts to that of Sword Art Online, such as both of the following Anime have leveling, flooring and guild system which; consequently, makes a show better.

Also, they both have main male protagonist voiced by the same person. Moreover, Bell shares a lot of same qualities to that of Kirito. Above all, they have similar aspects of MMORPGs.

Danmachi has a very similar vibe to Sword Art Online. Both are about characters in a video game like world. The main characters are also very much alike, even down to the voice actor. Both have great action scenes and great looking animation. It's a safe bet if you enjoy one you'll enjoy the other.

Both of these anime have the same protagonist voice actor, the main setting of both shows are set in an RPG and are very similar in style. While SAO has players trapped in an RPG, DanMachi has the RPG as the real world. They both have very good action scenes during boss fights.

Alternate reality, that take setup in or in a feel of a MMORPG, with the constant fear of dying. Main Characters starting from nothing and becoming over-powered characters. Both stories build up a small romance setup, in a huge harem setup with little to no Character development, the stories shows a lot of inconsistency but is really entertaining. Looking for a no-brainer entertaining story. Both theses are for you. I recommend those for people new to anime or people who just want to watch a no-brainer story with fan services and action.

If you like anime's with Adventures, and MMO. I'd say that these anime's is awesome, as it makes you follow and build up characters as they develop and get stronger, but with great funny and sweet moments!

One anime takes place in a Virtual world while the other one doesn't. Both have very similar elements as they are both very MMORPG:ish (leveling up, special weapons, dungeons which get harder depending on the floor, guilds, parties, etc.).
report Recommended by adamkex
They both have the medieval action/adventure feel to them, both have great fight scenes, and both are centered around a dungeon.

SAO has more romance and is more focused on getting out of the game.

Dungeon ni Deai has better comic scenes -- in my opinion -- and is more focused of being one of the best in the "game" -- not really a game.
report Recommended by Bvern004
Sao and Dungeon have the same author? I think so ..

Both anime focus a gamestyle life. While in SAO they are trapped in the game, here on Dungeon they actually live in the game.

Both anime have a special MC with a super power : Atracting all girls in a 100 KM ratio.

So far, it looks like that Dungeon will be the same thing as SAO : great plot but crappy story telling and plot development.

When I watched Danmachi all I got were Sword Art Online Vibes.
They are very similar, the dungeons and monsters are the same except SAO is in a game and Danmachi is not. Although it's not set in the game there are many aspects that make it feel like one such as stats and currency from slaying monsters. If you enjoyed one of these shows you'll enjoy the other

The two anime felt extremely similar.
- They both have aspects of MMORPGs (stats, swords, loots, etc)
- The setting is very similar (medieval times)
- Both have a floor system where the stronger monsters are on the higher floors
- Also the main character in both shows are voice by the same guy.

Both anime have a similar art style, and the atmosphere feels very similar. Main difference is one is a game, and the other is real life. But the RPG elements still remain in the latter.

Dungeon ni Deai is clearly clone of SAO. Both are series about killing monsters and gaining exp/loot

They are both about some kind of MMORPG, and leveling
Both main character struggles in the beggining but becomes rather interesting througout the story.
report Recommended by goyohgo
Both animes have the general storyline in common: Characters living in a RPG-style world where you have to clear dungeons to achieve some kind of goal.

But in fact, I find Danmachi much more interesting than Sao because, although the story is quite underdeveloped, the comedy is really good and you won't have to deal with full-romance-style arcs like I had to while watching Sao.

Characters are much more mainstream, but at the same time they are much more entertaining and lovely.

So, if you liked the storyline of Sao, and at the same time you like harem/comedy animes, you will love   read more

The anime's are about living in a world which levels you up after killing beasts and training at dungeon's. Also they get better after every episode and get better gear which improves them.

Both MC are going for a bizzarre adventure, going up through levels, and grinding to become stronger. Girls in DanMachi are atteactd to MC like on SAO. Difference is SAO is virtual while DanMachi is insinuated as real life.

I quickly fell in love with this anime. Very quickly.

Its SAO only without the game part. Its their world, and they live in it. It has dungeons, monsters, leveling, equipment... standard MMO stuff. Though unlike SAO the MC is too dense for my liking. I feel like this will be a great anime nonetheless.

I recommend starting to watch this immediately!

Dwelling in the deepest parts of the dungeons in order to achieve fame and power, Bell Cranel learns to maximize his powers and abilities while creating friendships. An adventure-like anime that shares ideals such as guilds, wizards, swords, and so forth.

Both anime have RPG elements (for exemple leveling system, items, abilities etc.) although Dungeon ni Daei isn't an RPG. Both anime are playing in a fantasy world. The main character is very kind and gets very strong during the anime. Both anime contain a bit romance.

- Supposedly the [MC] in both [Bell & Kirito] have the same VA, I know that the same VA means nothing,but then we come to the point that they have the same kinda feel.
- A harem,pseudo-harem at the very least.
- Even with that harem,still has a main girl. [Aiza & Asuna]
- The point that they seem like MMORPGS.
- The shows have the characters to try and get through the floors.

Both 'SAO' and 'Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka' have that gaming vibe. Both anime share the same ideas of leveling up and becoming stronger. Bell and Kirito are both aiming to become stronger and more powerful to face challenges and hardships. Both main characters have a special something to them that set them different from the rest. If you are a fan of video games/adventures/action/battling, I recommend Dungeon.
report Recommended by MaestumAngeli
The protagonist in SAO starts of as a character that is shown to be surprisingly powerful in the beginning of the show, while the main character in DanMachi starts off as a (sort of) inexperienced fighter who wants to get stronger. As time goes on, each character becomes more powerful and gain many allies and friends of all sorts! ^_^

I would definitely recommend DanMachi to ANYONE who enjoyed or is enjoying SAO at the moment. It has humor, romance, and a "clearing dungeon" sort of vibe! Magic is also involved!

Not a rip-off of SAO, but a unique plot and awesome   read more

Similar fighting scenes, Leveling up and a stage based tower. One of those anime a where you just have to watch the next episode straight after
report Recommended by KiritoRises
-Protagonists have the same VA
-Interesting utilization of MMORPG concepts (SAO is one big MMORPG while Danmachi's everyday life integrates those concepts in everyday life naturally)
-Both are exciting adventure animes that contain confrontation with psychological traumas and smooth animated fight scenes

THey are both interesting animes that have similar themes and settings. Danmachi has a lighter story than SAO, but has its fair share of thought provoking moments. Overall if you like SAO, Danmachi will be an enjoyable anime for you.

Both are fantasies and have a RPG-like system and both have parties, leveling, dungeons, guilds, and etc. In DanMachi it's like they are living a game world while as SAO they are stuck in the game. They both are like a MMO!

If you seen DanMachi its a must watch to see SAO!

The characters and atmosphere. Although the game is not an online rpg environment like SAO, you will feel that it's like you are inside a game. If you are a sword art online fan you can't miss this anime. You will enjoy it from start to finish.
report Recommended by Duo02
Both share the same setting where MC's have to battle each level of a gamelike survival situation, how ever SAO's plot was a bit more serious and intense where the setting is in a gaming , while Dan Machi was more about getting prestige where the MC has to do also titlewise, SAO really fits well in the anime itself than Dan Machi where the titile doesn't correspond to the anime itself in fact it even conflicts with the plot.

They are both based on RPG games and have a main character who gets all the girls but doesn't realize.
report Recommended by NNextremNN
I found these anime to be extremely similar in terms of settings. Both take place in worlds where monsters are fought and tavern-type buildings are normal (although there are some differences, the biggest being that SAO is set in a virtual world instead of a 'real' fantasyland). Both protagonists are constantly wanting to fight bigger enemies, and are voiced by the same actor. As someone who loved SAO (even with its faults) I would say to save it for the next time your bored or waiting for new episodes of other shows.
report Recommended by Anonmousely
Both have very deep characters and nice animation. Sword Art Online is more driven to the VR fans, where as Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? is more of a fantasy setting. Buckle in, Both are enjoyable and give a nice fantasy setting but in a different time.

As we all know sword art online is set inside SAO/The game. In this anime, it's almost as if the they setting of this anime is a game, even though it's actually real life. When I decided to give this anime ago, I began to feel like i've seen this somewhere before and I realised it exactly the same as SAO (although kirito is ridiculously OP) and they're both made by the same producers. However, this anime if ecchi just encase you were wondering.

If you love the idea of an RPG style world both of these are for you.

Sword Art Online is literally an RPG game in virtual environment so a lot of general game mechanics are more natural.

DanMachi on the other hand is a world where elements of RPG games are natural parts of society, such as dungeon delving, player levels, etc.
