So far, Overlord looks really promising. It gave me the hype that SAO's first episode did, so I'm hoping it doesn't faceplant in the next few episodes like SAO did.

Re:Monster has a very similar premise in that it takes place in a videogame, and the main character finds himself as a sort of leader for a pack of goons. Both really great titles.

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.
