Isekai with Demon Lord type MC. Bunch of hotties around too. In my opinion this is the closest one out of all other recommendations. Main difference is that Overlord build around MC that resides mostly in his base while Isekai Maou more of traveling party type anime.

Both male MCs are transported to a game world they played in their character's body who were known are Maou (Demon Lord). MCs live in this other world leisurely while traveling and meet other funny people. Both of them are very strong and win every time "almost" effortlessly.

Both shows are about a overpowered demon lord and his harem. While Isekai Maou is more focused on Ecchi,Maou Gakuin is more focused on Action.

Both anime are about a guy that goes to another world. In both of these anime the main character gets two cute girl slaves and has adventures with them the different between the two is How not to Summon a Demon lord is more of comedy ecchi anime well The Rising of The Sheld Hero is a Drama.

Both set where the MC is eventually ported into another world though by different means, where one is more of a spoof of MMO game based anime's their comedy is quite similar and if you liked how not to summon a demon lord you would like Konosuba. Both have fan service if you're into that and both MC's were shut ins and the shows overall has the same kind of feel but with Demon lord being a little more serious than Konosuba

Both are isekai anime where the protagonist/s end up on a strange new world where they kinda fit in better than the real world. Both Over powered protagonists and both has shared themes like comedy, harem and echchi.

They both got isekaied into a game where they are basically overpowered and there's a monster fight in both animes that are basically the same. Big Difference being one has more ecchi.

- Both anime are Isekai's but in Devil is a part-timer, the demon lord ends up in the human world whereas in how not to summon a demon lord, a human in his demon lord form ends up in a game. - Both the anime are filled with cliched anime tropes where the MC who is dense as hell forms a harem consisting of a furry, a tsundere, a well-endowed waifu girl etc - In both the anime, the demon lord is the good guy (no one knows why) and does most of the work whereas the girls are just useless most of the time

Overpowered demon lewds, eh, lords enter the scene and form a harem. Those are borderline hentai and you should watch them. "Shinmai Maou no Testament" is more serious, like "High School DxD", while "Isekai Maou to Shoukan Shoujo no Dorei Majutsu" is more about the comedy, just like "Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!".

The main characters are introduced in a new fantasy world and enjoy life as they build their reputation of being the most powerful being in this world and as they rapidly build a harem. 
report Recommended by NatoBoram
This is the story of a demon lord forming a harem. It's a light comedy mostly revolving around lolis and a powerful demon lord. 
report Recommended by NatoBoram
They're both isekai anime. If you like the genre, you will probably like them both. They are both mostly light-hearted shows, and the protagonists don't take themselves too seriously most of the time. The both have absurd moments that make you laugh out loud, and they both throw some unexpected things your way (tsundere dragon, how to get closer during a summoning ritual).

Are you getting tired of generic isekai/fantasy anime? Well too bad these are two very typical isekai anime with overpowered MCs living in another world and lots of female characters. However if you like lolis you should still watch these anime because both anime have a delicious top tier flat chested demon girl as a character. In UchiMusume the demon loli is the main character; in Isekai Maou the demon girl is a side character but there are plenty of other lolis for you to enjoy. So if you either like typical isekai/fantasy or like cute girls, you should check these anime out!

If you like isekai with an overpowered MC, Tsukimichi is one that you can watch especially with its comedy and of course the harem of cute girls will always be present.

Both are summoner protagonists, but Isekai Maou contains more ecchi while Kuro no Shoukanshi is more exploration/adventure oriented.

The same fantasy based anime that involves chacater stuck in a alternate world, it also has the same situation where guy has a harem except one has it harem added from time to time while the other ony has 2 girls as the guy's harem. 
report Recommended by JiangHaoyi1979
Both shows are about an MC that ends up living life as his/her in-game character and inside the game world itself but with major differences from what they're familiar with from when they played the RPG game by themselves beforehand. How to not summon a demon lord is however somewhat ecchi, something that is currently missing in the land of Leadale, other than that we just follow an OP MC on a grand adventure comedy with their new friends.

The anime version of "How Not To Summon A Demon Lord" uses a very similar premise but is different, or maybe "more 21st century" than "Chivas 1-2-3". Instead of the "body-swap" trope it uses the isekai trope to put an otaku into a fantasy world as an over-powered egotistical demon sorcerer. Said sorcerer has two slave girls, much like Chivas' relationship with Fizz and Kiss. One's an elf not to dissimilar in style from Kiss but fills more of Fizz's role, and the other is a cat-girl mage who looks more like Fizz but provides the "furry factor" as an alternative to Kiss's role.
