On the night his favorite MMORPG is scheduled to be shut down, veteran player Momonga stays logged in until the clock hits zero.

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?

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.

Gyftos Gyftos says...

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.

thor123 thor123 says...

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.

iLive4Anime iLive4Anime says...

Similar in some aspects, but Overlord is much more dark and sinister if you are into that kind of stuff. Slime is more light hearted and stuff. Both charachters are super strong and stuff.

DominiX970 DominiX970 says...

In short what they have in common:

OP main character

Both are Isekai

Fantasy (Magic and other stuff)

Building own country

SoloHunter SoloHunter says...

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

KaneOtonashi KaneOtonashi says...

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.

Kakajoju Kakajoju says...

Both animes are comedy, adventure isekai in a fantasy world. But they are also total opposites that could balance each other quite well.

PJczesio PJczesio says...

Both are comedies and isekai. Konosuba pushes more in comedy, Tensei Shitar Slime Datta Ken gives us more fights and super powers.

Sorry for my english im from Poland :)

YuriZero YuriZero says...

Both are good comedies based on the MC being transported to another world and given "abilities", similar to an RPG setting, and then they have to survive and make their own lives again from scratch. If your sense of humour allows you to enjoy one of the two, then you will most likely enjoy the other as well.

FullmetalDragon FullmetalDragon says...

Both series are isekai that feature quirky comedy, a weird cast, and all round ridiculousness. 

Xplayer Xplayer says...

These anime are two of a kind in succeeding in brining new life to the isekai genre. Surpringly Tensura is the more "serious" while Konosuba is more "comedic" but both are excellent overall shows that any anime fan can enjoy (even those not familiar with the tropes they're trying to parody).

ayachani3 ayachani3 says...

though not directly similar, they both take a different approach to the "isekai" genre and are far more lighthearted than other titles in this genre.

AnimeThighs AnimeThighs says...

i like them both and they're kinda similar

Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody

Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody

"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.

They both revolve around a character coming from a normal Japan and ending up in a magical world where they have to learn about their magical abilities

An63rX3r0 An63rX3r0 says...

They have similar premises. MC is an average human that somehow gets sent to a fantasy world and somehow gets overpowered. They are both at least a bit kind and prefer peace.

LianNox LianNox says...

They're pretty similiar game world mechanics plus I always like MC who have OP trumpcards and the ensuing reactions of the people around them. 

kcheong001 kcheong001 says...

both are adventures in another world, where the protagonist is either reborn or tranported to another world .

SubbedAll SubbedAll says...

They are both isekai anime and have OP main characters, if thats what your looking for and harem. 

Rachelho Rachelho says...

The main character is OP and it is where the character is tranported into another world where the main character can display their powers.

latika01 latika01 says...

They resemble eachother when it comes to content. They also have similar feelings when you watch them.

YuriZero YuriZero says...

Both MCs are brought to another world where magic exists and they're trying to find the place where they belong. While Re:Zero is more serious and TenSura is more oriented towards comedy, the story follows the adventures and the progress of the MCs and they have their similarities.

commonxreaction commonxreaction says...

Both of these series center around a modern Japanese protagonist who is whisked away into a magical land. Both protagonists are fairly intelligent, or at least savvy enough to lay the foundation for their direction. Each series has an aspect of world-building and directly involve the protagonists in how relationships affect the developing plot. While there are some key differences in the respective struggles that each character deals with, there is a good chance that if you like one of these shows you'll like the other.

Shakesphere Shakesphere says...

Both characters go through progression on a power-scale, and both are about starting life in another world. The pace and the swiftness/scale of progression for each main character are different, and Slime has more comedic elements than Re:ZERO, but both are dope.

it is very interesting to see how the mc becomes strong from zero and also the story is not like the the other isekai anime it is a new story with a great plot. hope u checkout my recommendation(sorry for grammer mistakes)

Yain Yain says...

I must admit that I was very surprised with either animes. Let me explain why.First of all, I am the kind of person that has gotten very bored with the "Virtual world" plot that we have been fed massively ever since the initial release of Log Horizon (which is really good let's not deny it) and Sword Art Online (which is quite good plot-wise but overly extended to my mind). I was in a dire need of seeing something different. The Rising of the Shield Hero is an anime that starts in this Virtual World//Parallel World setting which really is a fantasy land and the plot slowly evolues in something that isn't quite what we had expected, in a manner quite similar to That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime. 

What I enjoy is that it isn't your average "aventure", but instead focuses a lot on the Character evolution and both animes explore thoroughly the sides of their characters. 

If you liked either of these, you are sure to enjoy the other one! 

Grizz Grizz says...

If you liked this, then you will probably like this too. As they are both isekai fantasy stories, though one takes a darker turn than the others comedic and cheerful take.

YuriZero YuriZero says...

In Nurarihyon the MC already has a clan, but goes on adventures with his clan-mates, while in Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken the MC builds his own clan and goes on adventures with his clan-mates.

Although Nurarihyon is more a more serious story, Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken is more comedy based, but both have similarities.

Both of these shows are based around a modern, older Japanese protagonist who is whisked away into another world. There are some key differences in terms of their circumstances, but essentially both have prior knowledge of what they are getting into. Both are "otaku" to their respective varying degrees and appreciate the strange creatures they meet and don't think of themselves as superior. They treat who they meet as equals. As such, each series tends to focus on world-building and not strictly a straight-forward plotline. If you like one of these shows, there's a good chance you'll find something you like in the other as well.
