If you're a fan of action-packed anime that feature a skilled gamer in a fantasy MMORPG setting, then these are the shows for you. While they differ plotwise, the similarities are endless such as the engaging action sequences, the very skilled and confident protagonists, and the cute female companions.
Both series involve OP gamer protagonists who are fairly light on emotions, and have a harem of girls flock to them. King's Avatar focuses more on esports, while Sword Art Online leans into romance and arc-based storytelling.
both mc are real badass....story line is little different...this anime shows mixture of mc's both real and virtual life....but in Sao they shows on mc's virtual life with more game details
Both MC are pro players in MMORPG.
Both MC are so skilled, intelligent, badass.
Xiu looks like Kirito, Mucheng looks like Asuna (exactly the same hair style).
Kirito is similar to MC because they are both best in their games. Although Quanzhi Gaoshou focuses on eSports, they both have their struggles. The animation is really good, too.
This show continues the ongoing trend of video-game themed anime, but The King's Avatar goes about it in a mellowing slice of life style.
TK'sA is about an eSports star who is dismissed from the team after several lackluster years, and the new way of life he finds through a nightshift job at an unassuming internet cafe. This show is very surreal in spite of, or because of, it's simplicity.
-both about games
-based on light novel
-QZGS is a chinese anime
-QZGS is more of a MMORPG than a virtual game like SAO
Which is better?
It's Quan Zhi Gao Shou for me as it focuses on the action and there is just a REALLY REALLY SLIGHT hint of romance (if you could call that a romance), which is good for me since that is what I'm looking for. (I'm a gamer btw.)
Note: As of now, it is still ongoing, so if you do not want ongoing series, then don't watch it YET. (But I still recommend watching it NOW)
So, to be honest, I dislike both shows.
However, I figured out hey maybe since I dislike both anime for roughly the same lines, someone out there might like them for the same reasons.
In fact, one of the big plus of both anime is that they provide a community fed up with wimpy MCs with winning ones whose character triumphs exist first and foremost to gratify the audience.
To those simply looking for an easy and gratifying watch, both series deliver on that department.
Both MC are OP but Quanzhi Gaoshu's story is better in depth.
Both MCs are gamers in real life. They are overpowered in playing videp games. Good story and cool sword fights.
