The currently airing Infinite Dendrogram has the immersive MMORPG & sentient (or nearly so) NPC aspects.

I haven’t seen them yet but hear that Log Horizon & Grimgar of Ash & Fantasy  are also similar.

I'd need more descriptive comments than that, but off the top of my head you could go with the anime I've always said SAO (poorly) ripped off: .hack.  There's SIGN, and G.U. that are the big two, I'd avoid LOTB though, it's really annoying.  What elements of the show are you wanting similarities to though?

Overlord

Quote

On the night his favorite MMORPG is scheduled to be shut down, veteran player Momonga stays logged in until the clock hits zero. The screen goes dark for only a few moments before he finds himself completely immersed in the online world of Yggdrasil. Left with all of his character’s devastating powers, total dominion over his loyal NPCs, and nothing better to do… Momonga decides to try his hand at taking over the world. All the hours he’s spent grinding and dungeon crawling have certainly paid off, and as he tests his strength on local rogues and legendary beasts he comes to realize that not one opponent can stand against his might. Embracing his new identity as the fearsome mage Ainz Ooal Gown, Momonga continues his search for bigger, badder adversaries. Leaving the people of Yggdrasil to wonder who exactly is trapped with who? - Anime Planet

 

Grimgar: Ashes and Illusions

Quote

When Haruhiro awakens, he's in the dark surrounded by people who have no memory of where they came from or how they got there. As the darkness fades, a fantastic new world called “Grimgar” appears before them and their adventure begins—but first, they'll have to choose their guild, class, and special abilities. - Anime Planet

 

No Game, No Life

Quote

An urban legend states that those exceptionally gifted at gaming will be sent a special game invitation, and the winners of the challenge will be whisked away to another world. When Sora and Shiro, two hikikomori NEETs who happen to be both siblings and notorious gamers, receive this invitation, they defeat it with ease. And like the legends tell, they're transported to another world where conflicts, peoples' lives and even country borders are decided by competitions and games. Always up for a challenge, the pair quickly take on the obstacles that come their way, whether it be restoring lowly humanity's good name compared with the other races or helping influence who will become the next king. - Anime Planet

As he acclimates to his goopy new existence, his exploits with the other monsters set off a chain of events that will change his new world forever! - Anime Planet

      I'm about 5 episodes in & so far I like it which surprises me because it's all about killer mutant cockroaches in space & I hate roaches with a burning passion so go figure. I was actually so freaked out after the 1st episode that I cleaned my house from top to bottom. And no, I'm not exaggerating. I literally swept & mopped all the floors, did the laundry, took out all the trash, re-arranged the kitchen & scrubbed the surfaces in my kitchen & bathroom until they shined. **shudders** Ugh! I mean I like other bugs & insects but roaches...no thanks! 
      Anyway, curious to see if anyone else here has seen this show & if so, what are your thoughts?

      Hello,
      Recently I have been trying to find the name of an anime that I used to own on VHS since google has been of no help whatsoever I decided it might be best to ask in a place with people who have seen a lot of anime.
      while I dont exactly remember all the details perfectly as its been (I think) 20ish years the anime had 4 swords people  (3 who stayed together 1 who had amnesia) and 1 female warlord in the begining of the movie the amnesic one is in a village not knowing anything about himself other than he knows how to fight and he is tasked to get rid of wasps (or bees its been a long time) he kills all of them except 1 which stings him, later the other 3 find him and try to get him to remember and then the last parts I remember are the female warlord yelling "DIE HOMARU" (im 90% sure the name wasnt homaru and my mind just put that name in instead of what I heard) and then it being revealed that the warlord was a part of the swords person group and something happened that caused her to turn against them...also there might have been magic but honestly I dont remember
      also although I know im wrong the main character (With amnesia) looked like ryu  from street fighter in my memory
       
      if anyone knows the anime im talking about please reply and let me know its honestly so annoying trying to find the name of it and not being able to
      also it isnt berserk
       
      I apologize about the long run on sentence

      Starcraft 2 boys and girls!
      Am I the only one who wants a starcraft movie?
      I am hopeful that some one the awesome ladies and gents on this forums play SC2, but I am even more hopeful to encourage people to try the game out if they never have before. I feel like the RTS genre doesn't get enough attention even though SC remains one of the top E-Sport events with some of the highest price pools out there.

      THE GAME.-
      Think chess but on steroids. The fast pace of the game can be overwhelming to some, but the learning curve is rather accomodating. One of the biggest measure of ability in the game is how much you can do at every stage of the game, so rather than speed good decision making is the basis for SC.
      THE RACES.-
      Unlike a lot of other RTS games, you only have three possible races to choose from. The Zerg which is the best and only real race, the Protoss, and the Terran. Some people pick one race and stick with it their whole lives, but some like to live dangerously and enjoy the secret 4th option which is random meaning you get one of the three at random at the start of everygame. A hero of mine and one of the best random players out there is winterstarcraft, who is also an excellent resource for players looking to learn their game or improve their game.
      To those who already play I hope we can get some matches going. To those interested in the game lets get some questions going!

      FOR THE SWARM
