Both feature cute, overpowered girls in fantasy RPG-like settings. BOFURI takes place inside a video game and Watashi, Nouryoku wa Heikinchi de tte Itta yo ne is all in reality (reality for the show anyway, it's in a fantasy setting), but they have similar vibes. If you like one, you'll likely enjoy the other!

Slice of life animes about a group of girls on their fantasy adventure with some of the best comedy ever with wholesomeness splattered all over it. Both are great, if you liked one you'll love the other.

Both have overpowered female mains that get isekai’ed to another world and goes on adventures.

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 of these shows are super hilarious isekai shows however Watashi, Nouryoku (WNH) has less sexual humour and the entire cast is female. I found WNH to be quite funny and I hope more people watch the show

Both shows are isekais featuring a girl who lived a pressure-filled life previously, and got reincarnated into a fantasy world after meeting an early death hoping to live normal and relaxing lives. But they get interrupted as both MCs happen to be way too overpowered for their liking and as such, they draw unwanted attention to themselves.

Similarities - Both MCs reincarnate into a fantasy world - Both MCs have overpowered abilities (OPMC) - Both MCs are in the same age group - Both MCs attend an academy - Both worlds have magic/spell casting etc. - Both MCs develop technology/techniques in the new world Differences - MC in Watashi is female VS MC in Strongest Sage is male

Both shows are about a character who wants to have average levels in their next life but turns out to be overpowered anyway. Both MCs are also awkward as they aren't really accustomed to their new life. 
report Recommended by SummerADDE
Both shows deal with otaku life. The more cringe parts of it. Definitely some self reflection parts in both.

Both MC want to live a relatively normal and average life, but fate says otherwise. Both desperately trying not to stand out, but their desperate attempt of not standing out makes them stand out.

New Title: 'Who cares if I'm reincarnated in a new magical world, I just want to live an average life' • BOTH main characters want to live a normal life in their new reincarnated world, BUT they both have a crazy amount of power.

Just your run-of-the-mill, totally average super-powered people • BOTH have a story centered on a main character who may seem/want to be average, but ends up being the strongest there is! • BOTH have instances where the main character is underestimated by their opponents.

Similarities - Both MCs want to live a quiet life - Both MCs are isekai from modern Japan/China into a fantasy world - Both MCs have 'average' abilities in the magic fantasy world - Both MCs quickly get sucked into the affairs of their new world Differences - MC in Spirit Seed Manual is an average trash with no magic affinity VS MC in average abilities has an average level of elder dragon skills (still OP) - MC in Spirit Seed Manual is a male VS MC in average abilities is a female - MC in Spirit Seed Manual gains his powers from fairies VS MC in average abilities gains her powers from  read more

1) Both anime have a close group of girl's as the main cast 2) Both anime have main character display strength feats not possible to those around them 3) While "didn't I say" has the main character hide or strength as best as she can, "Reborn to master" 's main character doesn't seem to care as much. But she does tend to hide it when needed. 4) Both main characters get real serious when their friends reputations/life's are on the line, like in most anime. But they feel similar in these situations.

The protagonists of both series play the straight man to the tropes the series uses.

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. That famous quote by Arthur C. Clarke describes those two anime pretty well. In "Didn't I Say?" it is revealed in the first episode that "magic" is just the work of a very advanced nanotechnology. In "Scrapped Princess" it is heavily implied that "magic" is some kind of lost technology.

Both main characters have super powers and are very strong, yet want to live a normal, average, life.

Both parody the Isekai genre by making their protagonist even more OP then usual. Both aired during the same season.

The general plot: An overachieving otaku who was run over by a car is reincarnated in a world governed by magic. Thanks to the possession of amazing talents and advanced knowledge of science & technology, the MC quickly becomes an OP badass prodigy who is considered more than a little eccentric. The main differences: 1) K&M's MC was a 20-something male in his previous life; the MC in Noukin was an 18 year-old girl 2) In Noukin, the MC just wants an average life; in K&M, the MC is obsessed with building cool robots 3) K&M follows the MC & his knightly order; Noukin is about a party  read more

Both shows revolve around a character who was Isekai’d into a fantasy world with strong magical powers. Both have some small dose of comedy. Both characters have some title of nobility. Both MCs want to be adventurers. In 8th son this quickly becomes a side objective, while its front and center of Noukin. Both MCs get more attention than they wanted. 
report Recommended by Zemerax
They are both very underrated comedy shows and have way too many references to pop culture. The difference is that Jashin-chan Dropkick has a darker comedy style while Abilities Average is more light-hearted. If you like to laugh a lot, try both animes :)

Similarities - Both MCs reincarnated from modern day Japan into a fantasy world - Both MCs want to live a normal, mundane life - Both MCs become center of attention through word of mouth - Both anime use comedy and friendship to drive the narrative Differences - MC in drugstore is a male pharmacist VS MC in average abilities is a female magic student - MC in average abilities has overpowered traits (elder dragon) VS MC in drugstore doesn't have any overpowered traits apart from his medical knowledge
