Outbreak Company and Konosuba are two alternate dimension/fantasy shows with a parody spin on them. While both shows conform to many cliche surrounding the genre, the shows are aware of the cliche used and make fun of them now and then.

Both have a Tsundere character that likes the main. And the main is surrounded by Harem. The main comes from "this" world right into a "magical" world.

Outbreak Company and No Game No Life shares the similarity of taking place in fantasy world. And in that world, the main male protagonist gets involved with various races/kingdoms that tests their skills to the limits. There is decent amount of comedy, gags, and references. Outbreak Company deals with a protagonist using his otaku knowledge to change the world. No Game No Life involves a protagonist that uses their gaming skills to conquer the world. I recommend both series for anyone looking for entertainment in a world with fantasy appeals.

Almost the same, except the main character in anime actually went along to the other world for some excitement, while the other got duped by his own gov't.

Ixion Saga DT and Outbreak Company both deal with a fantasy world in which characters are enlisted to help others. The main male protagonist is familiar with the otaku culture because of his own experiences. There is a lot of parody and comedy going around both series. The main male protagonist also has odd fantasies regarding many characters on various occasions. There is some "action" but most of it is presented in a fun style rather than anything serious. Most of the episodes are also standalone rather than a linear arc.

Hataraku Maou-sama! and Outbreak Company both contain a ton of humor. Among some of these include its various anime references. The main characters in both series are also oblivious to certain simple things because they are not from the world they were once used to. However, they are able to adjust and even become friends with others that they encounter. There is some action in both series although most of it is portrayed as comedic. The main male protagonists from both series are also somewhat similar in personality. However, their respective relationships with the main female characters from both series are very contrasting.

One tries to run a failing fantastical theme park set in the real world and involves the struggles there within. The other tries to sell the otaku culture to a fantastical world and involves the struggles there within. Anime babes. Trust me. These are very similar and the comedy is great.

Both explore the otaku/hikikomori culture but one is way more GOOFY than the other.

Similar series yet different. Jimon Asuta and Kanou Shinichi are voiced by the same seiyuu: Hanae Natsuki. Both dealing with magic and hilarious shenanigans. The main characters from both series are thrust into a situation that decides the fate of the world. In Outbreak Company, he must teach the people of Eldant the otaku way of life. Also many parodies from different anime can be seen/heard here. The other series he must serve a loli overlord who wants world conquest. The heroine from both series are very similar. They are small, white/blue/sliver hair, cute voice, leader of a group/kingdom and have taken interest  read more

In both, the male lead enters into a new world which involves with a different form of language, magic, maids and a harem. Also both the female leads are cute, pretty, and have the ability to use magic to defeat the enemies.

Otakuish main characters who find a job, somehow; similar type of fantasy, comedy and ecchi. Yuushibu takes place in a "contemporary" magical world with demons, while Outbreak Company goes medieval with elves and others magical creatures.

In both, we have a protagonist suddenly plunged into a new environment, very different from where they live. Oda Nobuna no Yabou has the protagonist traveled back in time, in an alternate universe, while Outbreak Company has it's protagonist travel to a different fantasy world. In both, they are faced with very different social structures, and attempt to bring modern knowledge to the people around them, and in doing so, they end up with a very prominent role or position. They are both surrounded by abundant cute girls.

Both deal heavily with the otaku subculture. Both the main protagonists Aki and Shinnichi display great passion in the otaku industry and show others about it. In addition, both are harems. However, while Saekano is set in modern Japan and explores the creation of a dating sim sort of, Outbreak company is set in a medieval fantasy world with magic and mythical creatures.

When watching these shows, your Otaku meter might go on into critical levels as you find many references in each episode. Can you find and name them all? The series takes place in a fantasy world like setting, where it is filled with funny moments and filled with popular cultures (manga, anime, and games). The main characters mostly have fun in the fantasy world, but something awaits them, interfering their fun activities. The difference is that Outbreak Company is somewhat political, a male lead, and based off a light novel. Neptunia is somewhat breaking the forth wall, an all female cast, and based off of  read more

both anime the MC are smart and good for making a strategy, but powerless physically. Surrounded by a bunch of cute and lovable girls (I am really a fan of this concept :D) If you want to enjoy your night, go have a marathon. enjoy!

The anime has similar situation in which the protagonist and others are transport to another world. As in these case connected to another world. 
report Recommended by Lx_
Both anime have pretty similar start where the MC woke up in another world. Both focused on MC's everyday life in that world. Both have harems (but Outbreak Company is better, since the MC is actually falling in love with one of the girls). In my opinion, Outbreak Company is better because the MC is not overpowered. So we don't expecting much from him.

In both cases culture (otaku culture and protoculture) is used as military means in a comedic fashion. Besides that major point, both anime are pretty different.

Both involve guys who are taken from their homes and forced to teach people about a new lifestyle. Outbreak Company has the main character teach people in a fantasy world about the otaku culture, and shomin sample has the main character teach rich girls how commoners live.

Both anime revolve around the idea of trying to bridge a gap between different worlds. In Outbreak Company, Shinichi-kun tries to reach the Holy Eldant Empire with the use of Japanese Otaku Culture, while Maou from Maoyuu Maou Yuusha tries to reach Earth (or the human realm) with economic ideas.

The main characters have different personalities but similar circumstances, having suffered a heart-wrenching rejection from their crush and having misgivings about getting their hopes up when it comes to romance.

The main character from both series are teacher and otaku. Both of them use their otaku knowledge to help solve problems. One series takes place in a magical fantasy world and the other in the modern day world.

The theme of Genshiken Nidaime and Outbreak Company are peculiarly similar despite their contrasting settings. (one in the modern world while the other takes place in a fantasy realm). That theme involves the otaku culture where character embraces the hobby of watching anime, reading manga/light novels, and playing video games. The main male protagonist from both series are a big fanatic of anime and manga. They have vast knowledge and often involves dialogues into their conversations. Both series has enormously amount of comedy, drama, and a little bit of romance.

The main character gets thrown in a fantasy world where he gains a high social status. Surrounded by beautiful women. 
report Recommended by Rinji-
Similar episode structure, between one light hearted otaku character (or in Stony Cat's case, a pervert), and two moe love interests (both have a dominatrix loli character that is upset at the fact that the other female lead is always in the way). Things eventually get surprisingly serious, and the main character makes heavy developments beyond his simplistic and comedic introduction.

The main protagonist in both series is employed by a government agency as a liaison between humans and magical beings. 
report Recommended by SpookyWasabi
Series that take a semi-serious approach in portraying otaku life. While otaku life style is not the main point of the series, it is a vital plot setup that is required by the story.

A hidden realm that few people know about and a protagonist who somehow finds his way there. 
report Recommended by shigeru212
Both have main characters who believe that they can survive life with their knowledge of anime. Even though one fails (Watashi ga) and one does not (Outbreak Company), they are pretty similar character-wise. The main character has a fetish for anime girls/guys. The supporting characters come and go at times.

- Both make parodies to other anime series. - Have humor and comedic moment. - Pop culture references.

Both series reference other anime series and light-heartedly make fun of Otaku culture

A diffident guy accepts a complex mission from a mysterious organization that causes him to come into contact with many beautiful girls.

Male leads who are introspective, kind, and idealistic, while also being funny and a bit perverted. 
report Recommended by shigeru212
The fantasy-prone inner-otaku just plunges right out as these series evoke the same dazzling desire for romance & adventure. Whether that familiar (but not identical) character design allures your interest; by similar direction and usage of comedy & fan-service, there are appealing aspects in these series for nearly every viewer.
