Hello Anime Lovers. I assume you just finished the anime the rising of the shield hero and now you are looking for a cure for that post anime depression you have contracted. I’m going to give you four anime that dive deeper into some of the minor details of the rising of the shield hero such as the video game aspect and a mirror image of the rising of the shield hero.
To begin the list let’s start with the log horizon. It comprised of two seasons with 50 total episodes. Log horizon follows a college student named Shiroe who was magically snatched away from his normal life as he finds himself inside a popular MMORPG alongside 30,000 other gamers. Shield hero uses the setting more as background mechanic to give the viewers a sense of how the world operates while log horizon puts the MMORPG concept at the center of the plot and the world-building. Well, the Log horizon spends a majority of its time focusing on the world-building as the players adapt to their new lifestyle and as they create guilds and laws to maintain the peace between the players and the now sentient NPCs.

With no memories of how they got there. They need money to live and their only option to make money is to enlist as a volunteer soldier in the Army. Since they have no prior combat experience they decide that each of them will train in a different combat style.
