Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu, Hai to Gensou no Grimgar Recommendations
Both are relatively mellow variations on the "trapped in a fantasy game" genre. Focus is less on action/plot and more on emotional and personal relationships between characters. Both shows are unapologetic about their approach. The central themes that revolve around each show is hammered in with every episode, and results can be brutal, grueling and overwhelming in both cases.
Story wise, both shows feature protagonist(s) who are pulled into a brand new world without consent or ability to escape. Both main protagonists start out very weak, and have to accept very lowly roles first. As each series progresses, both male protagonists get braver, stronger, and
After the "trapped in a video game/fantasy world" genre has long since been tired out, these two add a refreshing spin to that idea.

These two anime treat their viewer and stories with respect, and deliver similarly high drama (but not at all forced), genuinely intense experiences.
One of the best anime of the year 2016, without a doubt. After the episode 8-9 you can not stop watching so exciting and exciting that the anime is.
Both Anime Characters are dragged to a Different World/Dimension or Parallel World, Similar Serious Atmosphere.
Both will make you feel emotional as the Story Progresses.
Both have this Survival Concept.
Both MC are somewhat similar when they try defeat their own obstacles.
Fresh new experiences.
