10. Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar (Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari)
Synopsis – Mysteriously teleported from Earth, Kenshi Masaki finds himself ensnared by a mysterious organization in a world called Geminar, where male mecha pilots are extremely rare. With the promise of returning home, the 15-year-old agrees to pilot a mecha suit called a Sacred Mechanoid and assassinate the ruler of the Shtrayu Empire, Lashara Earth XVIII. However, things do not go according to plan, and Kenshi finds himself a prisoner and an object of scrutiny by Lashara and her shipmates. After learning of Kenshi’s plight, Lashara offers him the chance to redeem himself by entering her employ. He will act as her servant, practically a slave, but also have a chance to once more pilot a mecha suit. Kenshi is willing to endure Geminar’s eccentricities if it means he may return home, but will he ever be able to do so? And what of this mysterious organization that brought him to Geminar to try to kill Lashara?
Similarity – Id say that if you have watched Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar and loved it you will also love gate. Why well both deal with fantasy and mythical monsters, and although they are very very different that is why I recommend it to someone that has watched it. you can get the feel of fantasy and mythical creatures from both of these anime while enjoying two rather good stories. Gate goes more in the direction of mythical creatures from another world meeting and getting to understand modern-day humans from our realm.
Synopsis – Shimazu Toyohisa is the real-life samurai who fought in the pivotal Battle of Sekigahara. In his dying moments, Shimazu is transported to a world of magic with other famous warriors throughout history. These warriors are forced to fight each other in an endless battle. Quickly befriending the infamous warlord Nobunaga Oda and the ancient archer Yoichi Suketaka Nasu, Toyohisa learns of the political unrest tearing through the continent. Furthermore, they have been summoned as “Drifters” to fight against the “Ends,” people who are responsible for the creation of the Orte Empire and are trying to annihilate the Drifters.
Similarity – This series is somewhat similar. They both have to do with war, both being in a different world of their own. In both anime’s, warriors from a different era come to this other world and fight the battle of sorts and because they are from a different era, they mostly over power they’re enemies.
Synopsis – Mirai, an improved Kongou-class Aegis guided missile destroyer, is one of the newest and most advanced ships in the entire Japanese Self Defense Force (SDF). Mirai encounters a fierce storm that throws their navigation systems into temporary disarray. After a few minutes of recovery, the crew is shocked to discover that they’ve been transported back in time to June 4, 1942—The Battle of Midway, during World War II. Letting history take its course for this battle, they manage to avoid the conflict firsthand and make a vow to remain annonymous, changing history as little as possible. However, when the crew comes across the dying Lt. Commander Kusaka Takumi, XO. Kadomatsu’s instincts to save lives takes over, changing the course of history more than he could’ve imagined.
Similarity – Both follow the same theme. What will happen when a future civilization meet a civilization from the past? While Zipang take it more seriously both shows are quite similar. The Gate feature fantasy and lot of comedy in between scenes. Zipang is more realistic though gate does have more mature/violent scenes. If you like anime where that the main cast is far superior and beat their enemies it is a good show to enjoy without relaying on too much of superpowers, but advancement in science. I guess?
7. Alderamin on the Sky (Nejimaki Seirei Senki: Tenkyou no Alderamin)
Synopsis – Ikta Solork is a carefree young man who only wants two things in life: a woman on his arm and a place to nap. Unfortunately, his peaceful life is destroyed when war breaks out between the Katjvarna Empire and the neighboring Republic of Kioka. Ikta and his childhood friend, Yatorishino Igsem, join the army as military officers, where they meet the infantryman Matthew Tetojirichi, the sniper Torway Remion, and the medic Haroma Becker on a boat heading for the military exam site. However, after a rogue storm sinks their vessel, the five of them end up in enemy territory near a military outpost. It seems that Ikta will have to put his dream of tranquility on hold, as he must now become the hero he never wanted to be.
Similarity – Both have OP themes by the Akeboshi Rockets and go for a similar, sleek visual style. If you’re a fan of fantasy settings with a focus on military engagements, tactics and an ensemble cast of both male and female roles, both of these shows give you plenty.
Synopsis – High school student Sota is watching the anime Elemental Symphony of Vogelchevalier when he suddenly finds himself drawn into it. When he returns to his world, the heroine of that series, the warrior-princess Selesia Uptiria, comes with him. They soon discover that this is not an isolated case, as several characters from anime, manga, and video games are being transported into what they call “the realm of the gods” by the mysterious girl Military Uniform Princess. Some Creations seek to meet their Creators, while others have more hostile purposes.
Similarity – In both stories the anime/other world becomes reality. The people from the anime/ another world as well are the people from the real word fight for their beliefs. Both male MCs like very much anime/manga/light novels and also like to come in contact with the people for the anime/ another world.
5. KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World! (Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!)
Synopsis – After dying a laughable and pathetic death on his way back from buying a game, high school student and recluse Kazuma Satou finds himself sitting before a beautiful but obnoxious goddess named Aqua. She provides the NEET with two options: continue on to heaven or reincarnate in every gamer’s dream—a real fantasy world! Choosing to start a new life, Kazuma is quickly tasked with defeating a Demon King who is terrorizing villages. But before he goes, he can choose one item of any kind to aid him in his quest, and the future hero selects Aqua. But Kazuma has made a grave mistake—Aqua is completely useless!
Similarity – Both anime are about an Otaku MC who takes a mission in an alternate fantasy world. The heroines from both shows also look alike: a Goddess, a loli mage/wizard, and a blonde who’s the tallest girl in the group. Both are action packed anime with comedy. The difference is GATE is about military while KonoSuba is purely an adventure in fantasy world.
4. Log Horizon
Synopsis – Elder Tales is an online fantasy RPG that has become popular worldwide. But when its twelfth expansion package, “Cultivate the Noosphere,” is installed, thirty thousand players in Japan are trapped inside. Among them is grad student Shiroe, who isn’t very good at interacting with others. But to survive in a world full of monsters, he forms a guild called “Log Horizon” with an eclectic group of other players. Shiroe must learn to live in this new world, leading others and negotiating with the NPC “natives” in order to bring stability to the virtual city of Akihabara.
Similarity – Both have scenarios where a relatively geeky person (or so it’d seem) from our world suddenly has to deal with another fantasy world. Both main characters are OP. The series each contain a lot less violence and a lot more to do with politics than one would expect. Both are worth watching for people who wish to be whisked away to a world that combines two and imagining what would happen to us if we were there!
3. World Trigger
Synopsis – When a gate to another world suddenly opens on Earth, Mikado City is invaded by strange creatures known as “Neighbors,” malicious beings impervious to traditional weaponry. In response to their arrival, an organization called the Border Defense Agency has been established to combat the Neighbor menace through special weapons called “Triggers.” Despite this delicate situation, members-in-training, such as Osamu Mikumo, are not permitted to use their Triggers outside of headquarters. But when the mysterious new student in his class is dragged into a forbidden area by bullies, they are attacked by Neighbors, and Osamu has no choice but to do what he believes is right. Much to his surprise, however, the transfer student Yuuma Kuga makes short work of the aliens, revealing that he is a humanoid Neighbor in disguise.
Similarity – A gate to another world opens in Japan and the government has to do something about it. Young men are trained to fight the unknown enemies coming from the other side. Both also share military routine as a theme, though Border Organization in World Trigger is a bit different from usual military headquarters.
2. The Familiar of Zero (Zero no Tsukaima)
Synopsis – Meet Louise, a budding magician. The students at the Tristein Academy call her “Zero Louise”, due to her current record of zero successes with magic. In fact, her magic tends to go spectacularly wrong. Now, as an important test of her aptitude for magic, she must summon a familiar to be her servant. At this critical moment, she summons up all her magic and wishes for a familiar that is “devoted, beautiful and powerful”, and gets… Hiraga Saito, an ordinary Japanese boy. It’s difficult to say who is more surprised and dismayed, but the rules don’t allow for second attempts. Louise is stuck with her strange familiar, and he with her.
Similarity – Entirely different plot but both have the protagonist go through the gate onto fantasy medieval world. and there were modern weapons used in the fantasy world on both series. Gate is about monsters invading mankind but zero doesn’t have that and is summoned into the fantasy world. zero is more of a harem show and doesn’t have much involvement with the military except some scenes.
1. Outbreak Company
Synopsis – Shinichi Kanou is a shut-in otaku with a vast knowledge of anime, manga, and video games. One day, after applying for a job in hopes of escaping his secluded lifestyle, he is kidnapped and transported to the Eldant Empire—a fantasy world filled with elves, dragons, and dwarves. Trapped in this strange land, Shinichi is given an unlikely task by the Japanese government: to spread otaku culture across the realm by becoming an “Otaku Missionary.” To accomplish his mission, Shinichi has the full support of the Japanese government, as well as the half-elf maid Myucel and Princess Petralka of the Eldant Empire.
Similarity – The first episode so the main characters very similar Otaku males that have to deal with culture and diplomatic relationships that have arises between modern and medieval age. Both have great characters and the art and setting allow you to believe you are actually the one there. If you are into new world genre stop what you are doing and watch both of these. The only difference between the two is the number of episodes (24 for gate and 12 for Outbreak Company).
