Very similar in the fact that both are Isekai involving a hard core gamer being transported as the main character. Both MC's are also transported into a villainous role instead of the hero part with OP powers none the less making for a great story.
Besides the standard isekai flare with RPG vibes, what really compares the shows are the main characters in that they are able to act in the world according to the in-game personas they created for themselves. Both characters have inner monologues with how they view the world, or how they are supposed to be acting as the Demon Lord/Overlord and create moments of comedy to break the tension (what little there is to break anyway in How not to Summon a Demon Lord). Both are definitely a fun ride, but have different offerings for the audience.
Many parallels to Overlord, overpowered MC, wakes up in the game and has to live in the game now, and 2 female characters like him/fight over him. in "how to summon a demon lord" is Shera and Rem, in Overlord is Albedo and Shalltear. Enjoyable to watch how stupidly powerful Diablo is in the same way it feels enjoyable to watch how overpowered Ains is from Overlord, another similarity is both MCS "act tough" in character while feeling embarrassed at the pretty ladies on the inside and they are trying not to show it.
Its kind of Overlord but slightly more silly and with big boobs. Having said despite there being mroe ecchi there are still enjoyable emotional moments and fantasy atmosphere whether you like the ecchi or not.
The best way to think of it is a mixture of Overlord and Konosuba. read more
Two very different kinds of Lords enter a new world and completely out-level absolutely everyone. In short, "Isekai Maou to Shoukan Shoujo no Dorei Majutsu" is a shitty version of "Overlord" + "Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!".
From what i have seen so far this Show seems to be just overlord without the interesting characters/great worldbuilding and a lot of ecchi scenes instead. So if you like the general concept of an isekai mc who pretends to be some almighty overlord/demon lord overlord them you should enjoy overlord.
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).
Tensei Shitara Slime and Isekai Maou to Shoukan both belong in the Isekai genre of light novel series. They have overpowered protagonists that explore their powers as the plot moves further. They both learn how to adapt in the new existence that they are in and expand their horizons with new friends and allies. The overall fantasy setting with the story and characters gives the same feelings and environment.
Both anime have a main character who was really good in a game and somehow was teleported into the said game. Both tackle the idea of adapting to this new environment that they discovered themselves in.
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
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.
- Main protag sent to another world
- Initially misunderstood
- 2 girls to follow around with MC
- Game-like mechanics (RPG fantasy)
- Slaves as an early driving factor (less mentioned later)
One standing difference is that Diablo is very strong from the beginning while Naofumi starts off with nothing, to get stronger later throughout the series. Different personalities as well.
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.
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!".
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.
Both anime features a lot of fan service.
Both anime has a male lead with cute girls around him.
Both anime involves magics and stuffs.
Both anime are action, comedy, and ecchi.
Animation is very similar.
