Re:Zero and KonoSuba take the same 'NEET transported to a medieval-fantasy' premise and go in differing directions... yet still somehow end up with their respective leads in mental anguish of varying extremes due to harem-related woe.

Re:Zero has its lead die over and over and over and over and over again trying to save the girls he encounters in his new world. KonoSuba also has its lead die from time to time... due to his moronic (yet lovable) band of misfit female party members that make him want to punch himself/them in the face.

One is a drama. The other is  read more

KonoSuba and DanMachi are similar in setting, both are about a male lead and their party doing different rpg quests. KonoSuba is more heavily focused on comedy and has a less dramatic tone than DanMachi, DanMachi also focuses on adventure and romance and is still comedy driven, however less so.

Protagonists in both shows (and the main female lead too) are transported from our world to a world full of RPG elements. Coincidentally, both male leads were really good gamers to begin with, so they adapt themselves quickly in the new world. While Konosuba is a show more focused on satire and humor, NGNL makes dramatic plot twist a routine.

Yes, it's another guy stuck in a fantasy world however it's a more light-hearted take on the genre. A bit lewd at times but still generally wholesome. While Konosuba doesn't take place in a video game, it captures the world of an MMORPG quite well. In a way that SAO didn't in my opinion.

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.

Being a part timer is never easy and both shows do a great job of showing that. Both shows have good comedy to go along with a humorous cast of characters.  
report Recommended by So-Intense
Both animes revolve around the MCs being stuck in a game world. Both animes are about the journey to basically survive or complete it.

Hai to Gensou no Grimgar is a more serious take on the 'game world' genre. It is more realistic as the main characters are really struggling in the game world (no over powered characters). It is also very slow paced (though I think it is perfect that way).

Kono Subarashii is way more light hearted and is more focused on getting the viewers to laugh. Its a blast and you'll understand once you watch the first episode. The voice  read more

Parodies of fantasy roleplaying adventures where everybody is comically flawed. 
report Recommended by kasarn
Both have spot on humor that will make you laugh a lot. There is a lot more fantasy is KonoSuba then there is in Amagi Brilliant Park, but they both take advantage of their fantasy elements very well. If you liked one you will definitely like the other.

Aside from having relatively lengthy titles, these two series each take place in a parallel world and are centered around the wacky adventures of a motley crew of four (one guy and three girls) aspiring to defeat a certain demon lord.

report Recommended by chrisna
Parodies of fantasy roleplaying adventures where the female party members are all comically flawed. The lead character is smart enough to realize how bad things are, but often just as bad. Both series feature a lot of sex based humour, albeit Bikini Warriors is a short and doesn't have much else where KonoSuba does. 
report Recommended by kasarn
I feel like both shows are similar in a lot of ways. The most obvious is that Megumin and Rikka are the same character. The tone of both shows is mostly light hearted. The sort of childish, over the top, delusional, battle scenes that briefly took place in chuunibyou is fully realized in konosuba as a full blown fantasy rpg. The main difference is that chuunibyou is a romance, while konosuba is a distinctive ecchi comedy.

Both have the comedy side to that fantasyworld theme
Cool characters + we have a tsuntsun in Netoge 
report Recommended by Salokannel2
Both have the same setting and moods, not to mention the same type of story telling. Or at least in the sense that at first it seems like they have the same type of objective but then end up doing nothing with it through out the story. The characters and comedy within the story are different but they'll both give you a good laugh, and are different from the rest in the sense that they know where to hit on your funny bone to make you giggle or cry laughing.

The Main characters from both anime are transported to a fantasy world. The World is like an RPG/MMO with guilds, classes, quests, and monsters. Both are NEETs who use their gaming/otaku knowledge to his advantage. They may seem weak but is actually very strong and reliable. Both Main characters are accompanied by others on his journey to get back to his own world. Both have comedy, action, and fanservice.

If you like Fairy Tail you'll love KonoSuba, the anime very much so displays the aspects that appeal to most FT fans and make them love the show. If you enjoyed KonoSuba you will at the very least like the beginning of FT. Both these anime attract the viewers interest early on so don't worry about getting into them because you're going to know that this will be an anime you're going to relish within the first ep. Some factual similarities:
- Fantasy - The settings are also pretty similar
- Magic
- A Guild - Not focused on in KonoSuba
- Fun Characters

One major aspect that makes KonoSuba so appealing is that it takes several light novel tropes and cliches and just dicks around with them; it just has fun with them. And that's exactly what "Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?" does as well. Both series are aware of these facets and use them to their advantage. You may also find aspects of their premises to be similar (i.e., a regular joe gets involved with a goddess, a tough warrior chick, and a little girl with cool powers - shenanigans ensue).

Both anime don't seem to take themselves too seriously and have a "scummy" main character as part of the show's recurring joke. The characters in Akashic Records are more true-to-life than konosuba, but the animation is just as pleasing to look at. Konosuba has little to no character development, but Akashic Records seems to promise that the connections between characters will change and deepen rather than having one-off episodes

Both series have a comedy driven plot starting off with a goddess telling the protagonist they can carry out a single wish. The protagonists then decide to ask the Goddess to stay with them, leaving her in disbelief. Once the goddess joins the protagonist their power is reduced significantly forcing the goddess to adapt to her new environment.

However, whilst in Aa! Megami-sama! the protagonist continuous to live in the same world and the Goddess is please to stay by his side. In contrast in Kono Subarashi the protagonist is taken to an alternate fantasy universe and the goddess considers the protagonist a  read more

1. The main character, Kazuma, is similar like Kyon. He narrated his life with some humorous in a serious moment.
2. Kazuma and Kyon have a similar situation where both of them were surrounding with odd partners.

Both shows share a similar style of comedy, and both are likely to make you laugh

Needless to say, the world of KonoSuba and Onigiri takes place inside a game-like world. While the story of KonoSuba is to fight a Demon King in order to get the main character’s - Kazuma Satou – life back, Onigiri is about a group of girls fighting malevolent creatures called the Kamikui to stop them from spreading. Even though the specified goal is clearly different, they share a comical tone in which makes the viewer fall in love with the characters. For the most part, KonoSuba and Onigiri are self-aware. To elaborate, they acknowledge that the world is game-like. In KonoSuba, the lead role is  read more

Both anime are hilarious parodies, and both have 'trollish' main characters that make their respective anime funny. They both have action, too. Also, both anime have masochistic female characters.

Both are totaly crazy comedies focusing on guy taking care of hopeless fantasy girls. Guy is not perfect prince in Konosuba and I like that that we have a bit different view on the problem.

Both have dirty jokes, both have that fantasy feel, both have a somewhat slow plot. I'd highly recommend both.

Kono pays homage to The Keima-Elsie Dynamic from Twgok.The humor is also timeless and original at times.If you like the humor in Kono,you will like Twgok.

Comedy adventures shows in a fantasy setting. Neither show ever takes itself too seriously. Both have a cast of four very likable and often incompetent characters. 
report Recommended by ItsXolo
Both of these shows start off with the pretense of having a story but quickly devolves into comedies where the main characters are incapable of accomplishing anything. Both also involve humor based on all the main characters being idiots. Milky Holmes is the funnier of the two. 
report Recommended by Volbla
A somewhat more serious look into the "transported into a fantasy world" trope, the gimmick being an MMORPG world that actually behaves like an MMORPG. Show has its ups and downs but is worth it in the end for some spectacular arcs.

Another one of the series in wich the main character is sucked into video game world and it has to save it from evil.

Both are outlandish comedies about living a strange life. Kobayashi is a bit slower paced but carries over a lot of the same themes about adapting to a new world and having new friends.

Although Konosuba tried to stay away from love and couples in the show, both have a MC with a group of girls with interesting qualities to say the least. The humor is amusing and it's a comedy worth checking out 
report Recommended by Silver-King
Both were sequels that has the same sub plot were characters have to deal with monsters as a way of living, thought one was more of a comedy the other was more on the action fantasy. 
report Recommended by Whoahoho
Both shows have the same kind of random humor were a mostly normal protagonist is forced to join up with crazy girls.

Both feature a masochist who enjoys being hit and such, however in Sabagebu! the masochist only enjoys getting hit by the main character whilst in Konosuba she enjoys any kind of brutal beating

In order to save the world, the main characters are bestowed a quest that they could refuse but they didn't because they are kind hearted. Forced to drag along a wonderful loli in this epic journey full of dangers, they discover their partner's inner personality and start to be attached to them all along the way.

Comedies in a fantasy world are truly a bliss.

Both are very enteratining comedy anime, which are kinda similar. Konosuba features a group of people in a rpg game world completing quests, and akiba's trip features a group of people trying to protect a shopping town, from creatures who posess people, who are defeated when all their clothes are stipped off (weird concept lmao).

Both feature an over the top male protagonist, and a group of female characters that work alongside them.

The akiba trip anime is based on a game, but i didnt play the video game, and really enjoyed it.

This is based on only watching one episode of "Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!".

Both series are quite random and include "from outside of the box" funny jab-like comments (突っ込み) about what happens. They both have an overall positive atmosphere to them mixed with a pinch of misfortune and some potential love stories. In both series, we have a male main character that is not viewed as popular and don't really talk to that many people. The setting of the two series is different, but the general feel of them and many of their genres seems to be overlapping, although I imagine  read more

Enjoy the RPG mockery of Konosuba? Then Koro-Sensei Quest will be right up your alley.

Both series are a loving homage to RPG's, that never take themselves seriously as they make fun of the clichés and tropes that are ever present.

Rance 01 is Konosuba: The Hentai.
In all seriousness, they share similarly pragmatic and perverted main characters who like to dress in green, with all sorts of weird and wacky female companions, set to the backdrop of a new fantasy world. Konosuba is outright hilarious, and Rance does comedy very well for a hentai. If you wanted to see Kazuma go 'all the way', then Rance is worth a shout.

Episode 7 from Konosuba is like this Movie. In the previous episodes Kazuma wants to get rid of from his party, because he thinks they are dumb and stupid, but he realizes, that he likes them and he wants to go back to them.

It´s pretty old but it´s good.
Konosuba that is a parody of popular present genre: The guy which travel to a medieval-fantasy game or world. As Konosuba, Gokudou-kun is parody about series like Slayers (popular in the 90s). And both has the same characteristics: powerless main characters, not serious plot, awkward moments, etc...

While Konosuba focuses more on slapstick comedy, they're both parodies of their respective genres.

These fantasy, MMORPG like anime focus mainly on comedy. While they have a few serious moments, it is dwarfed by the large amount of jokes and funny situations.

If you like MMORPGs and have good humour; these anime are for you!

Both shows have a focus on comedy and I feel like the main guys are similar.

KonoSuba reminds me of Squid Girl in their comedy and characters style. Squid Girl is not in a magical world so its events aren't alike, but the way they treat the characters and their kind of jokes and theme per episode method are alike in my opinion.

I enjoyed Squid Girl very much and I think it's pretty hard to find anime comedies from this kind, so I recommend it to you if you want a comedy that kind of feels like it's from the same creators of KonoSuba.

An otaku guy gets stuck in a fantasy world with a girl and has the end goal of making it back to Japan.
Sounds familiar?
Both shows have a focus on comedy and have a fair bit of fanservice.
Biggest differences:
-The animation style.
-Abenobashi can be a bit more serious at times.
-Abenobashi doesn't focus on a single fantasy world.
