Both have: -Isekai: Reincarnated from an unfortunate incident to another fantasy world. -Both are an Adventure story where they make many female friends. -Both characters are OP, straight up. -Both are about magic. -Both main protagonists have their old memories from the previous world. -Both have comedy -"Started from the bottom, now we're here" Overall a 70% correlation if I have to say ~

Both Shin and Anos are OP dark haired male leads who magical skills and expertise surpass the other characters in the show. Both shows have similar genres as school, romance, comedy, action, adventure.

Copy paste... almost. Same same but different. Isekai, main gets engaged (Not yet married unfortunately), gets cozy with powerful figures, and starts living well off. Oh, and is OP. So if you liked Kenja no Mago, Hachi-nan tte, Sore wa Nai deshou! might be another you'll like. You'd be surprised how similar they are! All we need now is a second season for both of these

After dying both male MCs are reincarnated to another world. The world they now live in have magic and both MCs are overpowered compered to other people.

In both shows we have a japanese guy being trasported/reincarnated to another world with, of course, some cheats. Both male MCs are OP compared to other people mostly thanks to their cheats and previous world knowledge.

There are so many similarities between the two that one could describe their plots simultaneously: A shut-in otaku-type with a demanding office job dies after getting hit by a car, and finds himself reincarnated in a world governed by magic and threatened by monsters; however, due in part to the fact that he still remembers his past life on Earth, and thus possesses a body of knowledge completely foreign to his new world, he quickly becomes an OP badass magical wunderkind who is able to perform once-impossible feats unlike anything ever seen before, revolutionizing the way magic is practiced and changing the world forever.

They basically have the exact same premise. Power fantasy about an overpowered kid from a rural area that moves to a large city and is incredibly, well, overpowered.

Generic, but nicely executed isekai. MC is hit by a truck and dies. He is rebron as an infant in another fantasy world of sword and magic. He also grows to be quite overpowered.

Both are funny slice-of-life stories with elements of fantasy & action and extremely similar premises: An otaku of sorts dies after getting hit by a car, and gets isekai'd in a medieval-esque world of magic. Because they possess knowledge of their former lives, they almost immediately become OP geniuses and revolutionize the way magic is used; however, they also possess little in the way of common sense, which often results in shocked responses from those around them. Early on, they make new friends whilst attending school, and eventually band together in order to defend people from various monsters. The main differences are: 1) WMG has more of  read more

Both came from other world and are overpowered compared to other people in all existing fields and Both lack common sense

Isekai's that deal with MC's who are knowingly OP from the start and with them being used to help protect their society  
report Recommended by Short_Circut
Both shows are Isekais where MC dies and reincarnates in a world with magic, both MC has lived in the forest all their life without going out in the world. In Kenja no mago MC has met no more than around 7 people in his life but in Kami-tachi he has only known slimes all his life. They both don't know what the common sense is in the new world that they're in thanks to living apart from society, meaning they don't know that they are strong becuase they think what they're doing is something other people can do. People close to the MC gets shocked  read more

Isekai's that focus more on magical combat involving spells, rather than RPG style sword fighting. Both also contain an OP MC who despite having a famous background, is unknown to most people

Both anime are magic academy related with an extremely powerful main character. In addition, both also have some comedy and hints of romance involved.  
report Recommended by Davi_Z
Both follow the cliche of having a dense OP MC attending a magic school. Not only that, the MC of both series are envied by a person hailing from the privileged class. The similarities does not end there, both Shin and Mo Fan are prodigies who are able to do things that other people their age aren't able to do.

both mc are > superbadass at high (both mc) > op mc >kenja is simple plot with action moment (you are here for ecchi not for you) > art is moody(my thought you may differ).

Both MCs were transported to a new world.(isekai) Both had special treatments. Shin had magic affinity-Kirito had previous game experience. Both consist of meeting their lovers on ep.1 Both consist of hidden techniques.

Both MCs are isekai'd into a medieval fantasy world after dying in a car crash. Shortly thereafter, there's a time skip, after which they both enroll in a magic academy. Using the knowledge of their previous lives, they become quite successful and unusually powerful. To their misfortune, other children of high-ranking nobles also enroll in their academy, causing them problems. While the series progresses, they both find themselves fighting monsters, knights, and various other enemies. There's also a bit of romance in both series, but it's not the main focus. The most notable differences are, that the MC from "Spirit Chronicles" is the fusion of a  read more

Both main character goes from modern world to fantasy world. Both of the isekai anime are great because their story line is well divided. It's not rushed and they both have powerful main characters. If you like modern day ideas tossed into fantasy then this anime is just right for you.

Both have an Overpowered Main Character and super amazing animation style. I like how they are both solo character and don't show off there true power every 2 seconds  
report Recommended by Kong38
These anime are similar in many ways, with the protagonist in both being OP (although to a lesser extent in Absolute Duo) and the academy setting. Where Absolute duo has a large focus on the academy life Kenja no Mago looks more at the world in which they live in. These anime both have well animated action scenes and likable characters. Both of the protagonists also only go for one girl (although in Absolute duo Harem tropes do appear). The music in both pieces aren't anything to be amazed by but they complement the action well, and Absolute Duo contains a good opening as well.

-Both Main characters came from another modern world into a magical one and their magic abilities are almost insanely overpowered. -Both have a nice bromance & romance vibe although KKM can be more yaoi lol -I liked that both anime has characters that are very upfront about their feelings/love and marriage. It doesn't take long for them to realize their feelings for each other, unlike some animes that totally stretch the tsunderes and dragged on relationships to prolong the plot.

Both of them have a protagonist who died and then was reborn in another world. Both of them are a comedy anime. Furthermore, both of them live in a world where there is magic and fantasies.
