If you're looking for anime similar to Overlord, you might like these titles.
Lonely thirty-seven-year-old Satoru Mikami is stuck in a dead-end job, unhappy with his mundane life, but after dying at the hands of a robber, he awakens to a fresh start in a fantasy realm...as a slime monster! 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!
Both of these Animes (and mangas) main characters are extremely overpowered compared to other creatures and aren't human. Both of these overpowered creatures rule over others.
Both of them have a MC that is overpowered AF. Both of them were human but are not anymore. Both of the MC rule over others that are also powerful. Although Overlord is a dude going into a game and this is about a guy dying and reincarnating in another world.
Both of these feature a human MC who becomes an OP monster in another world, after which they start building a country / expanding their influence using their human intelligence and a number of strong servants.
In short what they have in common:
OP main character
Both are Isekai
Fantasy (Magic and other stuff)
Building own country
The main characther is also very powerfull and the have a big goal
Ains want to conquer the world
Rimuru end up to build a natioan
Kinda the same concept.
Isekai Anime where person gets permanently dragged into a new world. In Overlord its the perspective of an evil villan, in Slime its the "site of the monsters" party.
Both Animes base on the world building concept. Slime is in that regards a little bit less heavy on the building side and mixes action and strategy parts in a harmony together.
Both are about a very very very op main charater whose a monster that leads a county of monsters, both main characters were also adult humans before they got Reborn into this new world, the one different between two is Slime more nice and fun anime well overlord is more dark.
They are both overpowered MC and i like how all their super powers are yet to be revealed. hence MORE EPISODES !!
great op protagonist not stupid mc .......................................................................................
Both animes are extrodinary in the isekai genre, creating non typical situations and plots that are both a universe's size greater than mainstream typical isekai such as The Wise Man's Grandchild or In Another World With My Smartphone. I love overlord because Ains is 0mega thicc and cool as f*ck while slime nibba is just killing stuf while looking like the biggest underdog.
OP main characters, the building of a non-human empire and a supporting cast that gets more attention than the MC themselves.
both are isekai non-human MC...........................................................................................
Both have the same overpowered-mc stytle. Also the way the story is told is largely similar. F.e. the way you learn just how extremely overpowered the powers of the mc are. The animation-style and overall feel of both are also more or less the same.
While Tensura has its overpowered character build his world from the "ground up" (that is, starting with nothing and constructing a civilization from scratch), Overlord has its main character take over the world from the top down (already having unheard of power at his disposal and many underlings to do his bidding). This makes Tensura the more interesting of the two in my opinion, but the two anime are certainly two of a kind.
Both take using meta knowledge or knowledge from the real world to a game/game-like world and do so in a mostly humurus way.
Both share ultimate overpower mc and both are based on magi
C and are extrmely valuable mc for others like harem
both the anime has overpowered mc,isekai anime,making name for himself,good comedy and fights! the difference is in slime datta ken he gets reincarnated into the otherworld,whereas in overlord he gets stuck in the game world!!
Overlord and TTIGRS is similar in Many ways both have an intelligent overpowered main character, that has a godt side. They both have that Explorer Vibe in quite a few episodes. What i Think is the bogfest Factor for why they Seem similar is that it has a very colurful support cast, that completely loyal to the main character and that they rule a City/nation/Tomb.
They're both based on someone who comes from what we would call IRL and somehow end up another world. While Overlord is based on a game like a universe and That Time I Got Reincarnated as Slime is more a fantasy universe with goblin, monsters, and spirits they both show the adventures of the protagonist finding their way through an unknown world.
Personally, I prefer That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime with its witty humor and characters and believe that Overlord is a good anime to follow and enjoy.
I agree completely both animes you have a isekai protagonist brought to another world similar to an MMORPG world and they have to establish themselves in this new world. Whilst they have many differences in their personalities and way they handle situations i could say that if you were missing on show or the other you'd feel completely satisfied watch the other equally.
The main characters are both sumoned to another world and they are extremely powerful... They are related to a mediaval world... Superpowers...
It's more or less the same trope. One protaganist cares about building a society whilst the other pursues world domination, this is the main difference between them. In other words, Slime Monster would not be able to negiotate with Overlord unless it was total capitulation.
These are both other world animes, with both having the sense of being powerful. They both have the sense of not knowing what to do, but faking it until you make it, finding out new stuff about their world as they go along.
Both MC's are OP,
In a sense, both MC are trying to take over the world/world peace.
Overlord does it through power, while Slime does it through how wholesome the slime is.
Have you ever woke up in a new world? Are you the most powerful being in that world? Are you unsure of what to do next: take over everyone and everything, try your hand at politics, make some friends, or destory a few villages? Why not watch these anime and get some ideas. They might come in handy.
Both series involve a hero coming into a strange world, establishing a small village for themselves and defending it from unique and interesting threats.
Both have OP main characters although that time i got reincarnated as a slime is more comedic
Both of these Animes (and mangas) main characters are extremely overpowered compared to other creatures and aren't human. Both of these overpowered creatures rule over others.
With over 20 million players worldwide, Elder Tale is one of the hottest online RPGs. At least, it used to be only a game, until the fateful day that tens of thousands of players became stuck in the virtual world, unable to log out. For these would-be knights, healers and magicians, Elder Tale is no longer a hobby, it’s a reality, complete with tasteless in-game food, revivals upon death, and boring NPC conversations! With no other options than to accept their fates, the analytical Shiroe, perverted-and-proud Naotsugu, tiny and adorable Akatsuki and other new friends must adjust to their new lives in Elder Tale, avoiding player killers and monsters along the way!
Both Are MMO animes about being stuck in a virtual dive system wihtout knowing why and both so far have been on the guild level.
Similar themes, so if you like stories about MMO politics and inter factional violence, there you go.
They are both bassed off a VR game that caused the person playing to get stuck in the game. In both ones the controles are different and many things have changed such as how the fighting is controled and now the NPCs now have their own lives have changed in other ways.
Both anime are quite similar between each other. In both of them the main character gets stuck in a virtual reality game and has to find a way to go back to his world while trying to get a grasp of the mechanics of the world they are trapped into.
If you liked one show you'll enjoy the other
Both anime deal with people being taken from their own world to another, and looks at the way they react to this situation, and how they take steps to adapt.
In both cases the protagonists set out to change this world for what they believe is the better in order to make the best of what they have been given.
Both center on a highly skilled player embedded in a vast RPG, with a mystery as to how the world came to be and how it works. Both feature sword-and-sorcery combat, alliances, politics, and tension between the newcomers and the world's inhabitants. So far, Overlord is more focused on the OP protagonist, while Log Horizon has a more balanced ensemble and a more credible hero, but both have been highly entertaining with a big cast of quirky characters and monsters.
Both the main characters are stuck inside a mmorpg and are both insignificant people outside the game.
Both are highly immersive MMO anime that focus on players that are extremely experienced in the game. However, one of them is at a complete loss as to how to live in this new world while the other has a slew of servants at his command that will help him with anything he needs. They're two very different approaches to a similar concept, and both are done very well.
Both these titles have the same general idea going; player gets trapped in the virtual world and tries to cope with the challenges of living in it. The only difference here is that Overlord is about a single player by himself without the luxury of relying on others stuck in the same situation and plays a much darker role in a way than what is seen in Log Horizon.
the humor is similar and the combat scenes are very well done.
also each of the character are very likeable for their own reasons
Both awesome shows based upon a game - gone -real life. In both, the players were parts of guilds or joined guilds. In both, they remained the powerful beings that they were in the game, but had even more room to grow in the new world in their new roles. I LOVE THEM! I WANT MORE!

Okay both main characters are stuck in a game world that they used to play. Both are badass. Both stories are very good. Also both have interesting takes on the game world. I'd rec these to any anime fan!
Both are about characters trapped in MMORPG worlds which they have to learn more about and get accustomed to.
Both are about getting stuck inside the game
The main difference between the two series is that Log Horizon is about everyone being sent to the virtual world, while Overlord is about a single player being sent. Both are very good MMORPG style anime.
Both have interesting virtual worlds, with strong character depth on the main protagonist. Between original plots, unique character personalities, your favorite VR tropes, both make a very satisfying adventure.
very different from each other but also a little bit similer...........................................................
once again if you're looking for an anime bracket of "dungeons and dragons" where a character must "level up" to get stronger and survive then check these two out.
Both shows have a similar approach to the same genre
Both stories are of "stuck in a game" genre with a OP (kind of) MC with tons of supporting characters
These two anime are pretty similar. Both gives fair amount of screen time to it's secondary and even minor characters. Protagonists want to rule over the world or a certain area. Also political affairs, intelligent protagonists makes these two anime must-watch anime.
The year is 2022, and gamers have lined up on launch day for Sword Art Online, a hotly-anticipated MMORPG that lets players connect to an immersive virtual reality world with special helmets called Nerve Gear. Kirito is one such gamer who's eager to jump back into action, having spent a great deal of time as a beta tester, and quickly becomes friends with newbie warrior Klein. But soon, Sword Art Online's 10,000 players discover that not only are they unable to log out, the only way they can return to their physical bodies is by beating the 100-level tower's final boss - that is, if their HP doesn't drop to zero first, for death in the game means death in the real world. Now, with no one else to turn to, Kirito and the other participants must survive the game as best they can – some forming guilds, others ruthlessly leaving their peers behind, and many tragically falling by the wayside or to the merciless monsters populating the lands...
These shows have a similar setting. A protagonist is stuck in a virtual world they can't possibly log out of.
In both shows, at first it's unknown why the players can't leave the virtual world. These shows have a similar setting, but not a very similar story, still, if you liked one of these, you might easily like another.
Both anime are about people getting stuck in a virutal MMORPG. They are filled with cool battles and good story. Sometimes when you watch Overlord or Sword Art Online you just wish that you were a part of their world or that you would also get stuck in a virtual MMORPG.
Both anime are quite similar between each other. In both of them the main character gets stuck in a virtual reality game and has to find a way to go back to his world. They have a little difference though, since in Overlord the lead is a not-so-evil villain while in SAO the main character is one of the good guys.
If you liked one you'll enjoy the other
Both stories focuses on highly skilled and experienced super gamers trapped in RPG worlds.One accepts living in the world, the other triess to escape.
either way, if you're into RPG games, you should get a kick out of both shows as they are very loyal to depicting life in and RPG, just as an RPG gamer would expect.
Both anime take place when the main character is stuck in a game. The plot covers what happens within the game from the main character's point of view.
Both are very amazing anime. They also have similar aspects such being stuck in an VR game and trying to adapt to their new lives.
Both shows take place in a virtual world and share other story concepts and themes, because of this, they also share the same genres.
It's pretty good if you liked Sword art online. plots and characters are king of the same. Specially both are really action based with lots of sci-fi.
similer in ways but different................................................................................
both are anime based on where the characters enter a "dungeons and dragons" situations where they must fight to survive. a situation where the main characters didn't ask for this task of "control" but they try to deal and cope with what hand they have been dealt.
Both anime take the perspective of a highly skilled gamer main character who gets trapped in a MMORPG. They are both thrust in to a position of leadership and fight for their survival within the game.
Transported to a new world? Check.
Can't leave that new world? Double check.
OP main character? Triple check.
Following the main character as they uncover the new world, try to lead and survive? Ding, ding, ding! What more do you want?! Go and watch both of them!
An elite but socially-stunted gamer finds himself in another world, inhabiting the body of his character Diablo. But despite his powers, his awkwardness keeps getting in the way–so he decides to pretend to be a Demon Lord and soon finds himself with a pair of slaves: a well-endowed elf and a cat girl. Together, they struggle with everything from interpersonal relationships to diabolical beast battles!
they folloe a protag that is a gamers who are sent to another world based of the game they used to play, and they are both are sent as thier own respective avatars in that game they used to play. they are both OP right of the bat & have very powerfull magic. also they get thier own harems. they are also tecnicalt the badguys in the wolrd they are sent to.
Overlord is basically How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord but with less ecchi. Both series have pretty good animation and an "interesting" cast of characters.
I like how its so similar cause he was playing a game and was summoned into that game. I would highly recommend this anime .
Protagonists are trapped inside a virtual game. Also they're overpowered male trying to act tough,cool and badass.
Both anime have main characters that are the demon lord/king. They also have the MC being trapped or summoned into the game by an unknown force and a harem. The plots are similar and they both are funny and good to watch.
Haha, wasn't expecting the 100 character minimum for the recom, but I think this should be about 100
Both series feature a social akward protagnist that are suddenly in another world, in a game they both know very intimatly. As a result, both MCs are OP and use their character's persona to overcome their akwardness.
I can see this being recced. Main char gets trapped inside a game inside a demon. Both awkward but have to act though. Altough How Not to Summon a Demon Lord is more comedy focused and has lots and I mean LOTS more ecchi.
They both have extremely OP main characters and they put a lot of focus on story and plot
Both protaganists are super OP and hilariously so. They're like fantasy video game versions of Saitama (OPM).
They both show a man getting transported into the body of their overpowered character inside their favorite game
it is the same permise taken from a different angle, while overlord has a more serious undertone, no ecchi, and an anti hero, how to not summon a demon is much more lighthearted.
Overlord and How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord both have the same qualities in what you want to see in an anime that focuses on the main character traveling to a new world with some cool action scenes to some comedy but in all 10/10 would recommend
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.
Watching Overlord kind of gave me the same vibes when watching NGNL. It's not that they have the same plot, not really; if so, I would have recommended SAO. If I had to explain it in words, I guess it's the culmination of the tags: person in a strange world, adventure, fantasy, being sort of in a game (but with the genre light-hearted, easy and fun to watch). It's not a "damn this is intense, what would happen next?" kind of story, it's something else. A straight to the point, chill kind of story set in a world of medieval age with strange animals (or animal hybrid) and magic and friendship (sort of), and I guess I found that in both.
Strategic story lines that place characters in new unique enviroments that they discover at the same time as the viewer. Switch between jokes and seriousness on a dime. Requires ability to look past seemingly ubsurd scenarios. Also some weird Ecchi/loli shit for NGNL but I think the plots worth it.
Both have main characters that get dropped in a foreign world and instead of "trying to return home" they stay because they like the new world. They also both have in common themes of the characters overcoming obstacles no matter how great, with relative ease.
Overall, they really feel similar too, it's like you could kinda see the two worlds existing side-by-side.
I just want to agree on this recommendation to help out. Now I'm just filling up hundred characters.
Both shows take place in a fantasy world and star characters from our world. There is a good deal of stratagy involved in both and they share the primary goal of ruling the world.
I just want to agree on this recommendation to help out. They both in my top 10 anime. this is just to fill the 100 characters thing
No Game No Life and Overlord have meny similarites it has a Strategic story lines that place characters in new unique enviroments that they discover at the same time as the viewer. Switch between jokes and seriousness on a dime. Requires ability to look past seemingly ubsurd scenarios. Also some weird Ecchi/loli shit for NGNL but I think the plots worth it.
Gamers trapped in a video game world, super strong characters who beat everyone else with ease, and who decide to take over the world.
No game no life is more about outsmarting enemies and overlord more about overpowering them, but other than that they are super similar.
Both game-simulated worlds where the main characters hold most of the power and have a great influence.
The same "into a new world" kinda story and the same op characters. Both also play with similar comedy and count with cunning characters.
The main characters in both anime are all extremely gifted at online gaming. Trying to get as much as they can from their game of choice, they are accidently trapped/transported into a game world. All main characters are extremely overpowered, and if they get serious throughout the course of the show, their strengths are something to be feared. However, those times are few and far between as the shows have many comedic moments throughout.
Well... these two animes are both in the isekai genre. While Overlord tends to lean towards some brutal stuff like: sword fights, magic, and actual characters being killed, NGNL is mainly a world of games where violence is extemely prohibited, I highly recommend NGNL if you like those mind boggling strategies that Ains demonstrates (ehem* I meant Demiurge), you'll definitely love NGNL.Well... if you're just an isekai trash... NGNL should be one of those loveable ones, the ones that will stick to you years after watching it.
On August 20XX, a gate suddenly appears in Tokyo's Ginza district, unleashing a portal where monsters, medieval knights and other fantasy beings come from another world and wreak havoc on Tokyo. The Japanese Defense Force take action against these monsters and push them back into the "Gate". Third Reconnaissance Team is dispatched to the "Special Region" lead by officer (and otaku) Youji Itami. On their travels, they are joined by a beautiful elf girl who is a survivor from the dragon's rampage and guide the group across the dangerous new world.
If you liked Overlord or Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri you'd also like the other one because both shows tell the story of a male protagonist from our world going to a fantasy universe with a twist that they're backed up by a military force much stronger than their potential rivals and both take part in the conquest of the fantasy worlds they are in.
Overlord and Gate have also strong focus on politics and diplomacy, dealing with both opponents and allies. The thing I find differing both shows is that Gate has much cuter girls, but they're also there in Overlord too.
Both shows involve protagonist that venture to a new world and completley overpower the residence of said world but try to make piece with it instead of taking advantage of it.
If you like one you shold like the other
The plots are essentially identical. The main characters are suddenly thrust into an unfamiliar fantasy world where the main characters are clearly the superior army. In both cases, instead of simply taking over the land, the main characters are trying to fit in. Main difference is the tone. Overlord is darker and more action-oriented. Gate is more lighthearted and comedy-oriented
YES. Watching these episodes is like riding shot gun in a tank that shoots fireballs at spearmen, your not really worried about anything your just enjoy ing the ride. Both heroes start at the top and try to understand a new world and how they fit in it.
I can see the resemblance between the two series. THere's a lot in common as they both deal with two fantasy worlds. Though one is virtual and one is physical..
While Gate isn't set in a virtual world, the fantasy theme is still very much present in both shows. There is also a good amount of similarity between Overlord and Gate with regards to the secondary characters relationship with the main character, i.e. they either love or highly respect him.
The Otherworlders are Extremely OP in both, they're both adventure anime... One is a game world the other is an alternate world, but they are both fantasy worlds.
It is June of the year CE 1923. A young girl with blond hair and blue eyes, Tanya Degurechaff, has entered the final curriculum of the Imperial Military Academy and is training at the third patrol line in the northern military district, the Norden Theater, as part of her service to the force. Her training, the first step toward a brilliant career as an aviation mage, should have gone off without a hitch... but things took an unexpected turn.
Havent watched much of YS or read the LN yet, but after the 2nd episode...it reminds me of Overlord; MC in both are dubiously heroic, OP and transported to a "strange" world. Oh, and magic.
They both feature the transported to another world and given another body plot points( which I'm a sucker for ) and feature theme of comradeship and loyalty, while letting the protagonist be analytical, intellectual and physical bad asses in their new bodies.
The key appeal between the two is that the protagonist are not only noticeably similar but different as well. They both want to thrive in their new worlds, but one tries to act above the traits of human emotions for themselves while being unsure of what to keep, if any thing at all. The other tries to hold on to as much as they can due to their new body causing to become less of a natural response, and only acts above it for people he find himself with in his new world. Both start in a place of scepticism, but one find a place of happiness and hope while the other is pushed into mad hatred.
Also the ascetics of their environment as well as how they mix their own brands of fantasy into that and their time periods is very nicely done.
Watch both because both are really good anime. Tanya the Evil and Overlord have similar but the execution is a thing of beauty.
I honestly wouldn't be surprised if the same team were involved in the creation of both shows. They both have a similar premise and style, involving an overpowered main character thrust into a new world. Both have highly compelling characters, from lovable to hateable. While both have their darker moments, Overlord has noticably more comedic moments while Tanya the Evil stays gritty though most of the show.
The ruthless decision making brings a whole new level of drama to the plot and makes an impact to stand out in the crowded genre of isekai.
It's a great, classic anime that has an interesting art style and a good story that keeps you interested.
"Satou," aka Ichiro Suzuki is a programmer in the middle of a death march. He was supposed to be taking a nap but somehow wakes up in another world... What lies before him is what looks like the menu screen of the game he was working before his nap. He’s at a complete beginner stage at level 1. However, he had three “Meteor Showers” which could level a whole map. Suddenly, a whole group of lizardmen appears in front of him. In order to survive, Satou uses Meteor Shower, his level jumped to 310 and he became extremely wealthy. Whether it be dream or reality, Satou’s journey was now beginning.
Looking for a derivitive anime about a rediculously OP guy going into a new world haing to do with video games? Well than these two are for you. They've got it all from edginess to cop outs. Perfect for a little mindless isekai + games.
Well I don't know about "mindless" isekai but I will agree both MCs in Death March and Overlord are very overpowered. Be that as it may they're both in a strange world and have to learn the rules and regulatioins of each respective world and learn how to establish themselves as the "good guy". We get to enjoy they're decision making, mistakes, and character building. If you liked one I'm sure you'll like the other.
Overlord 100000000 is a must, Well for me because I love super smart MC, and he's just ugggh <3
On the night of his favorite game’s shutdown, Akira Oono awakens in the body of his online character: Demon Lord Hakuto Kunai. He’s not the most confident guy ever, and he’s traveling with an injured young girl. But with powerful game mechanics and abilities on his side, this gamer turned badass plots his course through a diverse new world filled with saints, demons, and charming companions!
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
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.
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.
Is It Wrong to Try and Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? is set in the world of Orario, where adventurers band together and look for treasures in an underground labyrinth known as Dungeon. However, for Bell Cranel, fame and riches are secondary to what he wants to find the most: girls. He soon finds out though, that anything can happen in Dungeon, and winds up being the damsel in distress instead!
The way SAO should have been. Bell is a badass, Godess Hestia is super cute and busty to boot. Dungeon diving done right!
the same fantasy theme but every anime has it own unique plot that make it different from others
Both are isekai manga or the anime if you like isekai type genre these two are fab both contain action adventure and comedy.
