Sword Art Online, Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu Recommendations
Fantasy world with fighting with themes of what its like when a real person is thrown into what feels like a game. After SAO I looked for other anime which felt similar Re:Zero was very satisfying.
You like fantasy world with fantasy beasts, knights, magic and stuff?
You should give this a watch. Though the difference are Re:Zero hasn't got a skillful MC and the plot is more deeply psychological than the world of SAO.
Compared to Sword Art Online, Re: Zero is much darker at times in terms of gore and overall subject matter. However, both shows are set in beautifully created fantasy worlds that are filled with unique and memorable characters that you can't help but fall in love with. The action sequences will keep you engaged throughout and the more mature themes will get you thinking about life on a deeper level. If you enjoy fantasy, action, with some romance thrown in as well, then definitely give this show some screen time.
Same main character transfer in a fantasy world. No mmo stuff tought.
Delivers where Sword Art Online does not; Re:Zero is a personal journey dealing with death anxiety, so much so that the protagonist sometimes descends into madness. It more accurately captures a 'RPG' dynamic, with respawning actually being a thing, which actually makes the series even more devastating. Also features a more reasonable 'levelling-up' of the main character meaning there is a genuine struggle.
