While Goblin Slayer is native isekai, Grimgar is isekai proper. Other than that, the battle realism of both gives these a similar vibe.
Unlike most fantasy anime, both shows present realistic/raw thoughts and emotions of the characters who find themselves thrown into an unfamiliar fantasy setting. Both shows also possess darker themes and as such would more likely be appreciated by a more mature audience.
while they both have a similar concept of a brutal depiction of adventuring, i do question whether goblin slayer will have any good characters that are likable to keep me watching like grimgar? grimgar was able to keep my attention week after week by contrasting that with nice comfy tone. so we'll see how goblin slayer turns out, and if its got anything more than just "edge"? so if you like goblin slayer i'd say give grimgar a go, i dug it.
Both the shows are set in a dark fantasy setting with killing goblins as their main focus. Also, both the shows are really violent and share similar artstyles.
If you like one of these series, you're sure to like the other.
Both take place in a dark fantasy setting. Instead of the magic, romance, and fluff of most contemporary fantasy/isekai, they focus on the struggle to survive in such a setting, without glossing over the death and violence.

Fantasy world with magic, adventurers and slaying monsters.
Involving the hardship of being a low level Adventurer.
People think goblins are week in both anime
Grimgar was a superior Goblin Slayer long before Goblin Slayer got an anime adaptation. It took a realistic and deliberate if at times overly melancholic view of an adventuring party in a gritty reality where they have to constantly worry about how to budget their meager adventurer income and where combat and killing are given proper weight and respect, with detailed and moving facial expressions that capture the gravity of their moments, all of which are wrapped in a hauntingly beautiful and picturesque watercolor aesthetics.
No rape though. If you just want that, don't half-ass it, go full H. I'm told Kuroinu has what you're looking
>Same realistic battle system in a fantasy world
>Totally a game setting but not really
>Great interactions between the characters
While the character interactions are great, apart from Goblin Slayer there is not really a unique character so far
Both have kind of similar art style (maybe I only think that).
Both shows involve a party of members dealing with quests that primarily involve killing goblins. Both shows also focus a lot on the characters rather than outside events
Both are fantasy anime focused on low levelled adventurers and how brutal it can be while fighting low levelled monsters.
Both have a similar concept of a brutal depiction of adventuring, but one one is the baddest since it doesn't pull any punches when it come to starting the 1st episode with a good brutal start.
Both are fantasy adventure action, bounty hunting and of course, LOT OF GOBLINS :D Both of them are also very good series, I enjoyed very much watching both. The worlds are also very similar and the themes are around pretty heavy existential subjects
