Tatsumi and Elizabeth set off an adventure. Night Raid (NR) and Nanatsu no Taizai ( Seven Deadly Sins ) are portrayed as villains. But in reality are the good guys who face off against the corrupted rulers. Both NR and SDS have unique members who wield awesome powers and have unique personality.

The similarity between the two includes each character has their own unique personality and ability that makes them strong. They also value their bond, and also Fairy Tail recruits members into their guild through adventures/quests they accept, so it's essentially the same as Meliodas looking for his friends from the Seven Deadly Sins.

Princesses who are on a journey in search for the knights she have heard of in stories after being chased out of their own kingdoms. during the journey, they face many hardships in search for the knights to help them with their goals. Both of these anime start out in very similar ways in which the princess of a kingdom is suddenly chased out and are being chased by the very people who protected them. They are joined with a very powerful person that protects them along their journey. Akatsuki, has more drama to it while Nanatsu has quite a bit of comedy and less of the  read more

There is a slighty similar art style between both series along with historic/fantasy settings and a cast of bright and lovable characters. Both series are fantasy action adventures following a young cast in a land with multiple kingdoms. The main characters of both shows, Alibaba and Meliodas, are both successful and ambitious blondes with similar characteristics. Magi and Nanatsu no Taizai both have unique artstyles that are bright and not too realistic, favoring a younger teen audience however both series contain darker themes with battle, war and murder. That being said the shows mainly contain lighter themes like easy comedy, fun and justice. I'd say if  read more

Both have a similar action and adventurous atmosphere with a blond, badass and short main character. Both have a large amount of comedy in their fights as you watch the MC take on various conflicts which their encounter in their journey. Also there are characters in both shows which embody the seven sins of a human. Though in nanatsu no taizai the characters have a past revolving around their sin and we focus on their present journey and development, whereas in fma:b the characters which have these sins are the main antagonists.

Both main female characters are looking for super strong guys, who are both perverted. And both main guys turn out to be much stronger than the girls expected, and have some crazy weapons.

Both shows have a very similar sense of adventure to them (well, at least in the earlier arcs of HxH), and both have fantastic visuals.

Both anime focuses on searching for friends/teammates ("nakama") while going on variety of adventures and each character has a unique personality as well as abilities that makes them strong and reputable, meeting different people and constantly being chased by the law enforcements in the story. Ultimately, the protagonist and his friends hope to obtain their goal.

For the simple comparison in terms of doing an "overpowered" character right. In terms of entertainment, the cast of characters, supporting or main, world and the building of the said world, and story progression, yeah it pretty entertaining.

This anime simply screams Dragon Ball. You don't even have to watch Dragon Ball to know it's similar. As long as you're familiar with what Dragon Ball is about, you can see it. We find a young women on a quest who by chance meets a small boy. As it turns out, this boy isn't really what he appears to be. He posses a special power that surpasses that of the norm. And as a result, they both embark together on a similar quest to the original. They confront some enemies along the way, but due to his abilities, the boy is able to fight  read more

A world where magic is present, a person gets involved in a group of seven to protect their loved ones. Full of action, comedy and of course, fanservice, where our protagonist in addition to having a hidden power, is a pervert.

I have seen just another person recommend Nanatsu no Taizai and I think it's unfair because their both great animes. Very similar indeed, both being about some knights/slayers hunting demons and wanting to save their loved ones. The MCs are kinda relatable to each other, both being small, friendly, OP when needed characters.

They are alike because Naruto and Meliodas both have yellow hair, they are both (pretty much) demons, they like/liked a girl who can heal ppl and have unnatural hair, Naruto was despised by everyone at a certain time, but later he becomes a hero! Everyone hated Meliodas (not EVERYONE but most ppl cuz there are the members of the Seven deadly sins to think about), but later HE became a hero too. Both Meliodas and Naruto have a friend with an amazing hairstyle and attract the girls in the show, not only that, but the people in Nanatsu no taizai can use powers similar to  read more

Nanatsu no Taizai is an adventure anime about friendship and bonds. They both give off a feeling of adventure and excitement, if not forgetting the fact both anime feature magic and over-natural powers (supernatural?). Both are really awesome anime and worth a watch if you adore this type of fantasy anime. 
report Recommended by Sigi-san
the MC team is overpowered, and often takes their time or doesn't really go serious for most opponents. The main difference is that Quan Zhi Goa SHou is in a game, and Nanatsu no Taizai is not, but the action of both is very entertaining

Both give off a similar vibe. Although Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? or Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomery no wa Machigatteiru ... is about someone who is gaining power and doesn't already have it, the plot of both of these is similar. The main hero in both are after a girl. They both have an incredible magical power. Plus both anime have fantastic artwork

- OP main character with a "happy-go-lucky" attitude - Set in medieval fantasy world - The early arcs concentrate on building the "crew" around the main character - General vibe and color scheme are similar. - Both shows can take themselves seriously when they want to, but there's always room for a bit humor, too. - distinct and interesting side characters

The greatest similarity funny and stupid ecchi moments and great power of the protagonists, also the voice actor for Meliodas and Iseei are the same

Nanatsu no Taizai and No Game No Life share very close similarities in terms of humor and fanservice. If you enjoyed the Ecchi aspect of No Game No Life, chances are you will also have fun with Nanatsu no Taizai and vise versa.

Now now now let me explain the similarities between Nanatsu no taizai and the Fate franchise. Both shows have really similar characters, for example Ban really made me think of Gilgamesh with their greedy personalities and overall chaotic neutral vibe and King made me think of Waver because of their laid back and soft character. Now to the obvious, both shows are centered around wars the holy grail war for Fate and the holy war for Nanatsu no taizai which are about medieval looking dudes fighting against themselves. And last of all both Mcs (Meliodas and Kiritsugu) have profound and sad backstories that lead them  read more

-Similar kind of comedy/action -Good character development -Badass animation -"Friendly fire" - ON

Both of these series start out with incomplete casts and over time develop rich casts full of colourful characters. In them the initial casts gather more members in order to dethrone a powerhouse. Although the characters you are first introduced to may not be as interesting or likable than you would hope, the rest of the cast will surely make up for it. These are both great stories and while they may deviate from their manga they are enjoyable and well worth your time.

In both anime series: The main characters (a prince/princess) were betrayed by their own people and the traitors either kill the king and/or take over the kingdom They go on a journey to get stronger and come back to fight and take back their kingdom They enlist the help of strong and powerful warriors The prince/princess have similar traits such as: they are kind hearted, soft and somewhat weaker than the other fighters. The prince/princess have a person that its their right hand and will protect them no matter what.

If you liked Nanatsu no Taizai then you will probably like Brave 10. Similarities: - Both main male protagonists end up helping a priestess who is the main heroine of the story. - Both anime have characters with special powers. - Both heroines of the story are being chased by dark forces that seek some sort of chaos. - Both anime carry characters who are struggling with their pasts. - Both anime have groups of strong characters that gather around the main male and female protagonists to help them. I'm sure I'm missing some but you won't know that unless you check them both out! :-)

I think this might be the best recommendation, the same characters, atmosphere and each story has its own strength but there is a similarity between them.

Both are shounen adventures where the main characters gather more companion as the story progresses. as well as improving powers and having quite a few interesting fights. Both has plots that are more than just plotless fighting. And both has a very rich cast of popular voice actors.

Both have very strong fantasy settings. Nanatsu no Taizai doesn't have any kind of video game setting, but they both leave you wanting to know more about the world with each episode. The character building in both are great but the most enjoyable part is how engaging the fantasy settings and sense of adventure is. Both have very powerful mcs but that's hardly why I recommend this with Overlord. They're both just really fun to watch if you want great fleshed out fantasy worlds.

Nanatsu no Taizai is a good anime. The actions are really well made and not biased. It also has a good storyline and background stories of the main characters. If you love Kill la Kill because of it's actions and background story. Then Nanatsu no Taizai is an anime for you!
