Both shows involve the MC dying at the beginning and being revived in a fantasy world where they are allowed to take one item with them. The main difference is that in Konosuba the MC takes a goddess while in Smartphone the MC takes his cell phone with him. Both shows, MC forms a party with a bunch of girls to go on adventures and quests.
-The story takes place in a fantasy world after the MC dies and gets resurrected.
-MC is in a party only consisting of females.
-Goes on an adventure and accomplish quests.
Generally speaking, the setting in both titles are really alike
The main difference is that the MC in Smartphone is an opposite of the MC in KonoSuba.
Both anime demonstrate the life a teenager that has died and revived in a different world, having a wish (or the right to take something with them) granted.
In these TV shows the world is not modern; it has a medieval concept.
The protagonists are surrounded by beautiful girls.
There is magic in these anime.
They remember an RPG game: through time, the main characters learn more abilities and get items (they get stronger).
The protagonists keep a souvenir from their homeland.
I recommend both of these anime. I liked Konosuba because it made me laugh when I expected the least, and I'm enjoying to watch (it's currently airing) Isekai wa Smarphone to Tomo ni, because of the interesting abilities used by Touya (MC) and the girls' competition for him. Still, sometimes I consider Konosuba a little repetitive and boring. read more
fantasy in a another world, both series have the same background where they died in the real world and got reincarnated in another world. Both have a male as the main character and surrounded by many girls. if you like Isekai wa Smartphone to Tomo ni. maybe you should try this series too
In both of these anime, the main character dies and he is resurrected in a Fantasy world. The main difference is that in Isekai wa Smartphone the God that resurrects the MC is not useless and dumb like Aqua from Konosuba.
Similarities: Main chractacter dies and gets offered to go to a new world.
Gets to take one thing with him. Main character is surrounded by girls. They are both comedies.
Differences: Konosuba is way more well written, has better humor and more interesting characters. And it came out before Isekai wa Smartphone. Isekai wa Smartphone basically ripped Konosuba off. Isekai wa Smartphone is basically Konosuba done worse.
Both of the MC is transported to another world by a god. It has magic battles. In Konosuba, the characters are very likeable and funny while in Isekai wa Smartphone, the characters are powerful. Complete opposite of one another. For me, Konosuba is better.
Isekai Smartphone is what KonoSuba should have been, MC/plot wise, that's not saying that either one is bad, I liked both, just Isekai has a better MC and plot, though... I must admit, KonoSuba made me laugh more, and it doesn't have as many bland characters in the MC's harem. Oh, did I mention that the harems were both interesting (and funny at times) in how they did/didn't work together? Yeah.
Now, onto the similarities:
Both have the MC go to a world with magic, guilds, and adventure after death.
Both have the MC be able to take one thing with them to the new world. In Isekai, it's a smartphone enhanced with magic, in KonoSuba, it's a goddess who (extremely minor spoiler alert) is kinda useless, and who spends all his hard-earned money several times.
Both MC have harems in the form of his party
Both have a more or less useless mascot of the party (well, in Isekai's case, Kohaku is useful in the LN, but not so much in the anime, like, useful in two scenes and as a method of communication, while in KonoSuba's case, Aqua is useful against undead and... for party tricks, I guess, and she screws up enough that she more than makes up for the useful bits)
Both have a girl whose main attack is an explosion, and a girl who has a hard time hitting anything, though, she is good as a kind of distraction. Oh, and a girl who does not care about, and, in fact, LIKES getting stripped in public. Can't forget that.
Both MCs have minor perverted tendencies, though KonoSuba's MC is more so.
Now, for the differences:
In KonoSuba, the MC is not OP AF, unlike Isekai, and he and his team are very good at causing collateral damage.
In KonoSuba, I guess the girls in the MC's harem are all kinda sorta VERY quirky, with a masochistic noble, a pyromaniac mage, and a useless goddess.
Honestly, my main problem with KonoSuba is the fact that a masochist who can't hit anything and a mage who can only cast one spell, and only once per day, are each far more useful than a goddess, and that the MC is still alive only because of, well, uh... several dozen Ex Machinas and a goddess who finds him dying to be too funny to let him stay dead, instead living to die another day in another stupid way. Seriously, he died the first time (about three minutes into episode one, so it's not really a spoiler IMO) because he THOUGHT he was hit by a truck when he wasn't. Still, if you like one, you'll probably like the other, at least a decent amount read more
First off, both anime share some similarities. Both anime started off where the main protagonist died from some cause. They eventually had a conversation with the god. Both protagonist gets transfer to another world.
Both of these anime are similar in a way such as where the main protagonist died from a cause. They both get transfer to this fantasy world and were also able to have a conversation with the gods on about their next life. Both anime also show how the main protagonist is being surrounded by multiple female protagonists.
Same concept. Male protagonist gets "transferred" to an RPG fantasy-like world that allows him to meet a group of girls and go on adventures while at the same time minding the difference between fantasy and real life.
-both anime will offer you relax feeling when watching.
-main character have good trait (kind,caring, popular with all girls)
-overpower character and skill when go battle.
-death march have better story line compare to Isekai wa Smartphone (more intense but still light)
-Both animes shows the every day life of a japanese boy in another world while being surrounded but a lot of girls.
-Both MCs are OP and can use every magic possible.
-Transported in another world
-Both male MCs got cheat abilities, are naive and got "at my pace" personality.
Both are pretty good relaxing 'Isekai' harem anime with a kind/caring OP MC who treats all the girls like his family. The main characters are extremely similar and I like em both not only because they are OP but also coz they are level-headed unlike many immature brats or shitty perverts that we see in many other cliche harem shows.
If you like one you will definitely like the other.
Both of these anime have similar overall plots that involves being sent to a fantasy world, that they have to learn the customs and setting of. Also, the MC is very strong in both of these anime, and they each end up with a harem (if you like that type of anime). Both of these anime are focus heavily on the daily life of the MC's and their group, but Death March portrays the adventure aspects of the plot much better overall.
-Both MCs have been transferred to a parallel world (Isekai).
-Both MCs encounter women that later have affections toward him.

both series is mainly focus in another world for this one. the difference is SAO is a story of a living person playing in a game and Isekai a guy who died and reincarnated in a new world. both main character have some special skill and make they're famous with the girls around them. if you like fantasy themed anime with romance and a little bit comedy you should tried this
They both occur in a magical world, Sword Art Online is an MMORPG and in In Another World with my Smartphone they are actually there. The action is similar. The protagonists also have similar personalities and physical appearance of black kinda spiky hair and slim and tall.
Also both are classified as Harems.
Isekai wa Smartphone to Tomo ni. is a HUGE step down from Re:Zero, but it is important to notice the fundamental differences.
The MC in Isekai is OP as f***, while the MC in Re:Zero could be considered weak in a way.
Both anime depict a MCs in another world, but do it in a drastically different way.
In my experience, I only watched Isekai wa Smartphone to Tomo ni. because I loved how the animators had the balls to adapt this crap material. In a way, I was actively seeking how bad it was. For people that are not very critical, Isekai was Smartphone to Tomo ni. may be for them. read more
Magic is the main thing for both series. And both series have the same plot for their story where the male main character died and reincarnated in new world. But in the Isekai their main focus is the main character journey where in Knight's and Magic the main focus will be the main character curiosity in the robot technology. As someone who watched both series in the same air time i think both have their own charm and similarity.
They both have a main character that dies in the real world and is reborn into a new world with pretty op abilities gaining the ability to use magic in both cases. Both anime tend to take a pretty positive and bright outlook helping and progressing there new perspective world in some way or another helping there new friends along the way
Being brought to another world, meet up with cute girls, tumbs up for the series. Both series have a relaxing story. Outbreak Company got a nice atmosphere in the anime and Isekai wa Smartphone to tomo ni? give us a good magic adventure.
Both of these animes share a lot of similar overhanging themes and details.
-Person in a strange world
-Smartphone is the only thing still with the Protagonist in this new world
-Protagonist uses a smartphone to create items from their world to progress their new world
-Build a harem, lots o' lolis
-Protagonist is uninterested in his harem and his harem is in love with him
Lets begin with the similarities,
They both find themselves in another world, at the start
They are both I belive overpowered main characters,
The main character is and kind person that gets surrounded by friends
The main character makes all the girls fall for them
Both main characters are great at almost everything, one is at labor, other is at magic
They find out soon enough how they were sent
In both anime, the MC is way overpowered. Obviously, Mahouka has a completely different style of magic, since it is staged in the 22nd century, while Smartphone was staged in a parallel world in the medieval era. however both are in many ways similar. Mainly in the MC's character.
At first glance, they are totally different shows. However, for a broad-minded and laid-back viewer they will seem to be comparable. A human being lost and found in another, uncanny world? Check. A friendly harem (or a homologue of a harem)? Check. Problem solving skills reaching maximum? Check. Loveliness? Check. There is also a good deal of differences, but that should be enough to recommend "Kemono Friends" to "Isekai wa Smartphone to Tomo ni" fans. And vice versa.
Overpowered protagonist protagonist in another world surrounded by his harem, yeap, pretty much describes both of these. Isekai wa smartphone to tomo ni is a bit more innocent in that respect, far less ecchi/fanservice.
Both the protagonists Touya and Saito have a Dukedom of their own and are masters of a castle where many women who love him are living with him. The difference is that in The Familiar of Zero they fight for his affections whereas in In Another World with my Smartphone, they are on the same page and want to share him. The concept of a unique magical world is also common to them.
Although with vastly different storylines, Clannad being in the normal world with another world connotations and In Another World with my Smartphone based in another world, the following are the similarities between them:
Both are counted as Harems although Clannad is to a lesser degree as the main heroine of Tomoya is Nagisa but other girls have affections for him but in In Another World with my Smartphone all of them want him and Touya can't choose.
Also the Twins in Clannad Kyou and Ryou are too similar to Linze and Else from In Another World with my Smartphone in terms of their physical appearances as well as their personalities one timid with short hair and one tsundere with long hair.  read more
If you enjoy your harem full of magic, fantasy, and gorgeous ladies, check out the other. Both male protagonists are gifted with magic supremacy in their respective worlds. They are humble and strive for a better tomorrow.
Isekai's setting takes place in a fantasy-like world full of humor and adventures. Seiken has a school-like setting with suspenseful events.
- The main characters both get sent off to different universes, but retain something from their homeland that gives them an upper hand over the natives.
- Many young girls in both cases
- Both contain fanservice, but not the typical ecchi lewd type
Ever wanted to be transported to a kids fantasy adventure world and, on top of the typical antics, end up with a harem of cute girls? These shows do have their more serious moments, but they're mostly lighthearted tales where the main character hangs out with local royalty, solving all their problems because he's more powerful than pretty much any opponent. After dealing with the occasional rampaging demon or dragon, the hero must face an ever greater challenge: how to divvy up his time amongst his haremettes!
Both go into another world.
Both being Tech (either a smartphone or a Tablet) with knowledge from their world that can revolutionize this new world.
Both Main Characters are pretty OP - in their own respective forte.
Similar situation where MC found him/herself in another world, where he or she now has to use his/her wits to survive. The difference was one is a usual harem while the other is reverse harem, also one world is an afterlife for the guy who is living the life, while the girl in another anime is living in a nightmare.
