Sword Art Online, Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari Recommendations
Both have MC's stuck or transported to another world fighting on the front lines to try and save the world.
both MCs fight in a alternate world to survive, except Sword Art Online's MCs trapped in another world while The Rising of the Shield Hero's MC teleports to another world. both are good series to watch.
Pretty much similar, you'll feel the vibe, but not as good as Shield hero
- Game\fantasy worlds. Settings feel extremely similar
- Super strong main hero (in Sao almost immediately, while Shield Hero starts a bit slower. A bit)
- Hero surrounded by girls (gaaarems)
- Similar ways in which action moments are executed\Similar story development
On a minus note:
- In both, most of characters are too weak or too stupid, compared to MH.
- Both stories are predicatable and illogical as a result
- I liked artstyle and music in both
- I disliked story and characters in both
They're VERY similar. If you liked one - you will like the other. If you disliked one - you will dislike both
Please watch all the series and movie's this anime is so amazing i promise must watch it.
Both involve being drawn into a game and fighting evil.
Rising of the Shield Hero (Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari) is an Isekai just like Sword Art Online but it has different aspects that will make it feel new and exciting, great animation, story and characters. Instead of an overpowered protagonist (Kirito) we have Naofumi a weak protagonist which uses hard work to become strong even when the whole world has turned their back on him. The heroines of the series are also very good with individual traits and relationships woth the mc. This show in my opinion is a better Isekai than Sword Art Online and after seeing SAO I reccomend it.
Tate no Yuusha is certainly one of the best anime I've watched, came here through recommendations from SAO and Bofuri, wanted to explore mmorpg animes, this wasn't exactly that but watching this became one of the best decisions ever. Truely a masterpiece, even the songs (title track and post credit track) in this anime are a treat!
both have love and game skill fights
