If you liked one, you will surely like another. Gamer that was playing as an demon lord, spawned into another world. Both are surely very alike.

dabestmoneva dabestmoneva says...

both have a gamer as the mc who is sucked into the world and is overpowered. both have female companions.

Flamyko Flamyko says...

so similar that you need absolutely watch both of them. (can I say so similar again:)

CreepsWatching CreepsWatching says...

They are both steaming piles of garbage cashing in on the combination of overpowered protagonists in a strange world. Yet, there is something to be said for a show that gives you everything you want in fantasy land. Enjoy in moderation :)

darkzwizard85 darkzwizard85 says...

Premise is similar in the sense that both MCs are summoned into another world as an OP demon lord with its own tag of harem. Both are relatively light-hearted. 

mesanator mesanator says...

both MC are summoned into a fantasy world that is apparently based on their belowed mmorpg. Both MC main quest is apparently to find a way to return home. So basically same story.

Phantomorph Phantomorph says...

It's like the same thing but different. Like steak from different steakhouses. They have the things that are good and the things that are bad, but depending on what you are feeling one can be better than the other and vice versa.

henrymcdo henrymcdo says...

I like both, but it would be much better if they'll continue for a bit longer. OP players makes more sense and ideal protagonist than a weaker but cannot be beaten by stronger opponents and eventually manage to win.

paristheweeb paristheweeb says...

They both are have all the best qualities for a comedic-isekai anime. Both involve the MC being "reincarnated" into a game that they exell at (one might say they are very similar to Sword Art Online), and both take on the personalities of said character. 

Overlord

Overlord

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?

Practically has the same plot as overlord. MC's favourite game is shutting down, he stays on up until its shutdown, then gets transported into the world as the demon lord. This anime is like the discount version of Overlord

Crua9 Crua9 says...

By ep 4 Demon Lord, Retry! he starts to bring his servents to where he is at. Like Overlord, he even has them gather info vs killing everything.

Demon Lord, Retry! is basically a knockoff and cheaper version of Overlord

mesanator mesanator says...

both stories start with the same premise: the MC favorite mmo shuts down at midnight and gets someone summoned to a fantasy world that is seemingly based on that mmo. Without going to much into spoiler, this is where stories probably divert as overlord leads the MC down the path of being an anti hero while demon lord retry still keeps the MC humanity and humility.

Both are lighthearted with super powerful main characters. They have action and adventure as well. They also both share the "empire building" aspect. Reikenzan isn't Isekai like Demon Lord Retry, and has a stronger focus on the MC training to become better

The Misfit of Demon King Academy

The Misfit of Demon King Academy

Anos Voldigord was a tyrannical Demon King that eradicated humans, spirits, and even the gods, but became bored of eternal warfare and reincarnated with dreams of a peaceful world. However, what awaited him in reincarnation after 2000 years were descendants who became too weak after being accustomed to peace, and all sorts of magic that deteriorated to the extreme. Anos enters Demon King Academy that gathers and educates those who are viewed as the reincarnation of the Demon King, but the academy could not see through his true powers and ends up branding him as a misfit!

In the world of Gaeabrande, Goddess Ristarte is tasked with summoning a hero to save her world. The hero, Seiya Ryuuguuin, is an OVERLY cautious hero who’s obsessed with muscle training and buying armor before setting out to deal with low level creatures. It’s simply one overly cautious mission at-a-time for this invincible hero!
