Anime Question

Does anybody know an anime like Sword Art Online?

I just started watching Swort Art Online and it's awsome!
Please can you tell me some animes like this one? Btw...if you could tell me animes like Elfen Lied and Another that would be great...but please don't post Higurashi 'cause i already watched it. ^^

if your looking for gaming anime then there is a few, but not many. there's.......Log Horizon, .Hack//sign (pluss others like .Hack//Quantim, I just know Sign is the first), A recent one but i love it is No game no life (highly recomended) and if your a fan you probably know that the scond season of SAO came out recently :D

You should watch Angel beats! ts just as sad as sword art online! Its also funny, at the end I bet you'll cry if not.....Your not human! Angel beats is about a world that you come to after you die, it has lots of fighting, but instead of swords they use guns. I hope you enjoy angel beats!

Id have to say Accel World in terms of the technological aspects of the anime, its also made by the same person. My Summary: Haru is a short, fat boy who is constantly bullied at school. He always spent his time perfecting his skills on one game, inside of the virtual gaming world, because he felt he wanted to have one thing he was the best at. One day he finds that another person, named Kuroyukihime, has beaten his score. She tells him about a special game called Brain Burst, and from then on his life got a thousand times more complicated. This anime is great and I loved all the surprises around every corner!

A lot of people have been comparing "Shingeki no Kyojin" with "Sword Art Online". Shingeki no Kyojin probably had the most epic first episode (and others) ever.

There's Ixion Saga DT, it's kind of similar but it's hilarious but doesn't have any romance.

@Night453 Notice how I said "A lot of people" not "Everyone". I personally didn't think the two anime series were similar at all.

Yes! I'm so glad you said this because when I was watching SAO I was thinking "haven't I seen this somewhere a long time ago?" Then it hit me that it was like the .Hack// series. As awesome as SAO was, it isn't anything revolutionary or new

As another person said...
I strongly recommend BTOOOM!
It's a good anime and manga with smart gimmicks and plentiful of explosions.
Here's a summary of it:( Straight from the first manga)
" By all counts, Ryouta Sakamoto is a loser when he's not holed up in his room, bombing things into oblivion in his favorite online action RPG. But his very own uneventful life is blown to pieces when he's abducted and taken to an uninhabited island, where he soon learns the hard way that he's being pitted against others just like him in an explosive-riddled death match! How could this be happening? Who's putting them up to this? And why!? The name, not to mention the objective, of this very real survival game is eerily familiar to Ryouta, who has mastered its virtual counterpart-BTOOOM! Can Ryouta still come out on top when he's playing for his life!? "

I must warn you though that some of the elements in this anime/manga is a lot more mature than it sounds.
Seriously, believe me. o.o

BTOOOM is kinda like S.A.O. Has to do with a video game too. Except they're not stuck in the game, rather they've been kidnapped and purposely stranded on an island in a bomb fight to the death. I actually think it's better than S.A.O. but then again, I only saw the first episode so far. Gonna watch ep. 2 this weekend on toonami.

I can't do anymore input than what has already been listed for SAO. I do agree with the people who said to look into the .hack//sign series because when I watched SAO I was reminded of hack.


You asked about a series that was like "Another" and for that I have Psychic Detective Yakumo (don't be put off by the semi-lame name). It is really cool and the main character has "powers" like Misaki. BTW I really enjoyed Another, was my first horror anime and I loved it!

Here's the opening song for Psychic Detective Yakumo and if anyone checks it out, let me know how you like it!

A guy is wanting to be a grand preist but his fortune tells him he will become a demon king. Then another is The Devil is a Part-timer. Another demon king one lol.The demon king is on the brink of ruling ente isla (a different world) when he is suddenly beaten by the hero. He is forced to retreat and he ends up in modern day tokyo. The twist is...He lost his magic!!! He starts working at a MgRonalds (basically McDonalds) to get by and he lives like a normal human....somewhat...wel this concludes my crappy answer xD CHOU

This brother and sister pair are apparently more badass than Kirito and Asuna. I started watching SAO but never finished it, so I can't really compare, but I know that Tatsuya and Miyuki are about the strongest anime characters I know.
(And the pic shows just how strong Tatsuya is to Kirito XD)
