Somewhat similar animes with the main similarity being world development. If you are a fan of Overlord you will most likely be a fan of Slime.
In both animes the main character is overpowered and that is used as a plot device for world building and domination. The main difference is that Overlord is somewhat more "grim".
>Protagonists are in their mid-late 30s. (Both of them are also named Satoru lol) Both are also virgins who never had a girlfriend.
>They're both overpowered.
>Both have extremely loyal subordinates.
>Both of them build a country from scratch.
>Both are good natured people but take extreme action when needed.
>Both have the potential and ability to create a harem, but refrain from doing so for valid and personal reasons.
>Both of them unknowingly/accidentally end up doing incredible things.
>Overlord is more dark themed while TenSura is more light, with occasional dark theme spikes.
>Rimuru prioritizes friendship and good ties more than overpowering new acquaintances.
>Momonga is overpowered from the start and has no power growth, whereas Rimuru is overpowered only in his vicinity and has to grow to keep up with increasingly powerful enemies.
>TenSura protagonist dies in his old world whereas Overlord protagonist (most likely) does not.
>The New World in Overlord is more game-like (levels and such) than the world in TenSura
>Momonga is an overbearing undead skeleton while Rimuru is a cute harmless looking slime. read more
Both are about a very very very op main charater whose a monster that leads a county of monsters, both main characters were also adult humans before they got Reborn into this new world, the one different between two is Slime more nice and fun anime well overlord is more dark.
Both have overpowered main characters, challenges, and good writing! The excel in this genre of isekai and are actually original despite how repetetive one could think this genre is.
In Overlord, the main character acts more like a villain, showing the perspective of a "bad guy". While in Tensei shitara Slime Datta Ken, the main character is more of a good guy.
Both anime has good characters and story.
I don't know what to add if you like having overpowered mc and the isekai genre then just go ahead and watch everything :)
Both series feature mid-30's salarymen being reborn as an OP monster in a JRPG-based fantasy world. The MC is gifted with extraordinary skills right off the bat and wields god-like abilities (much to the dismay of the supporting cast). The MC gains a large, ever-increasing number of devout followers (harem time). It's also noteworthy that in both series the MC rules over a group of superior non-humans/monsters.
Basically, this anime caters to your ultimate escapist fantasy/fetish/wet dream. And it's pretty dope.
Many people compare SAO to Overlord. But it's just wrong.
Overlord, as well as Slime is a "macro" oriented MMO anime.
That means, they both enter this world they aren't exactly sure of the rules they are under, but both are immenesly powerful. It's not really a problem for the viewer, because that's not really what the anime is all about. It's about how the entire world around them react to their power, and how they use what they have recieved. They both have this underlying shadow of mystery enemies that you have not met yet, that are possibly as strong as them. In similar manner, they face eachother in a "macro" battlefield, much like an RTS game, and try to figure eachother out. Both games have just begun, which makes me pshyched for the continutation of both series.
In Overlord you got more brutal attitude of overpowered protagonist to obeying all world to himself, and in "the slime anime" main character is a little bit mild to enemies. Both are worth watching, mainly because of this aspect. Enjoy!
1.Overpowered main character.
2.Main character's intentions are often misunderstood by their subordinates and others making the main characters seem to possess very high intelligence even though that is not the case always.
3.Both of them are isekai anime.
- The main characters are both very powerful
- They are leader of a group
- The other characters are emotionally attached and adore the main character
- They come from the real world, and they go in a fantasy world (Isekai)
- Fantasy anime
- They have a big impact on their universe
-exploring the new world they have to live in
-loyal and likable subordinate
-the main character are both OP
-the skill each mc use are both very unique and creative
-SASUGA (mc name)
-the mc are both not human (in the new world)
-the mc loves their subordinate
-the OP and ED of both anime are top notch
-overlord at start ainz sama is already super OP while the mc from that time i was reincarnated as slime grow a little a little as the mc fights
-overlord is more dark than that time i was reincarnated as slime
-in overlord the story focus on alot of the character and sometimes doesnt have alot of screen time for ainz sama but in that time i was reincarnated as slime the story focus on the mc more read more
both anime figure 30s men that are isekai one through death and reincarnation and the other summoned or similar transported. both MC are non-human one is a slime the other an un-dead skeleton. Both MC find themselves leading other monsters and struggle as both where middle management. both have at least two of their female underlings competing to be the MC wife/lover
the main difference between the anime is the tone Overlord is much darker and the MC could almost be seen as an anti-hero while Slime the MC does his best to make everything work out
Both have an OP MC who obliterates everything in his path (Isekai) with an entourage they build over time.
Both have a fair share of comedy and light heartedness
Both have aspects of world building and just like in Overlord, Rimuru wants to find out other people who have come to the new world like him.
The only major difference is that Rimuru is the good guy in the anime whereas in Overlord we see the world through the eyes of the bad guy
Things in common:-
1. Both are Isekai
2. Both have overpowered characters
3. MCs of both anime have similar mindset
4. MC of both animes are non-human
5. They have similar aims.
*Slime is just less vigorous overlord*
If u liked Slime and want more bloodshed or vigorousness then go for overlord
If you like overlord i think you will like this. Its more about comedy and it looks solid after the first episode and it will go on for 24 episodes. Anyways i would recommend to watch one episode of it to see if you like it.
Two shows which approach the idea of an isekai character running a country from a different direction. Although both of these are comedies slime tends to be a lot more light-hearted. With overlord being much more certain about being a villain who aims to expand his borders.
"Tensei Slime is just Overlord on a Lawful Good playthrough."
In both series, the main character is purposely made to be extremely overpowered, to the point of having little to nothing that poses an actual threat to them. As a result, the conflicts in both series have to come largely from something other than fight scenes, since we all know who will win the vast majority of the time; instead, both series focus on what one would do if they had that kind of power. Inevitably, that kind of combat power grants you political power, and both MC's become leaders of a group that follows them religiously (albeit in very different ways).
While in Overlord, Ainz chooses to use this power to take over the world, Rimuru Tempest is an optimistic, compassionate guy who can't say no when he's asked for help. Tensei Slime has all of the politics, comedy and badass moments of Overlord, with none of the torture, sadism or purposely unlikable characters. It's an easy series to sit back and relax to, and enjoy an adorable little slime kick ass and lead a village to greatness. read more
-both isekai anime
-both mc's are not the goody two shoes that we are used to they are evil but not horror level evil, as in not human but an undead/monster that people are afraid of.
-Both mc's get surrounded by some interesting outspoken characters,that get attached to our mc's.
-one difference is that in overlord the mc is a maxed out badass from the get go but keeps it lowkey, the slime 'farms' and gets quite stronger with each passing episode.thankfully the 'farming' is edited nicely to not become boring.
-They both have an overpowered MC
-Both have city building elements
-Both MC's came from 'our world'
-Both have/acquire loyal servants
-Overlord is more 'brutal', unlike Tensei which is silly
-Ains/Momonga lost his human emotions and aims to benefit only Nazarick
-Rimuru (MC of Tensei) has not lost his human emotions and wants only peace
That being said if you don't mind these conditions I recommend you both of these shows from the bottom of my heart
People do recommend Overlord with this one, but there aren't much similarities. Overlord has a great character and an amazing story. The character is not just OP, he is truly aware of his powers and is willing to use them properly, while "That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime" features, well, a slime.
The start is very promising and shows a simple Japanese office clerk. I thought, as he is in his middle 30s, he would be a compelling protagonist for this anime. Alas, he truly embraces his "slimeliness" from the 1st episode and behaves in a childish friendly way throughout the story. While the overall "cuteness" might be interesting and funny, this anime is nothing like Overlord. Consider a 5 year old, blessed with enormous powers and either not realising that he has them and not using them or just throwing them around. I have no idea how a middle-aged man would just behave like a child, but here you go. Boring. read more
Slime and Overlord are both Isekai anime, they both have short seasons (Slime Season two airing Winter 2021)
The main characters Momonga (Overlord) and Rimuru Tempest (Slime) are both extremely overpowered and fun to watch.
while both anime have monsters as main characters they take a similar approach to this isekai patern while being overpowerd they tend to always be careful and have as a goal to dominate the world (overlord) or create their own country and have fun (slime isekai)
Both have very distinct yet very similar plots. On both you have an op MC that has a harem for himself but is completely okay with that. You can also see the reality of monsters in fantasy worlds, which is the case of Rimuru and Ainz.
Both stories star nonhuman isekai protagonists who are more powerful than most beings they encounter. These shows have great world-building, and large casts of quirky characters. A good distribution of comedy and drama elements keep these stories entertaining through and through.
They both are isekai's with the MC being,well ''Isekai-ed'' into a new world,into the run of the mil weak RPG monster bodies(being a isekai, they are far from weak).
They both have pretty good to excellent world building.
They also revolve around their follow monsters, over coming problems almost completely effort less and with both style and amusement.
Btw, this is my first MAL recommendation,if i did a good job and you would like me to make more on a certain topic,genre, ect, please let me know.
Both being Isekais.
The main character in each of these Animes is set to create their "kingdoms" and to try and either make peace with the current civilizations or dominate them. Each of these characters is extremely powerful in the world that they are born in, with amazing powers and abilities allowing them to do extraordinary things.
If you're looking for animes with an overpowered protagonists who can even rule their world then these are right up your alley. There's a similar world building where they sometimes go to war with other nations which shouldn't even be called a war because they end up in a massacre by only the main protagonists. Animation is also astonishing so they are both worth watching. The story isn't bad either.
MC tries to build a nation from nothing and both are primarily made of monsters I would say that overlord has better humor and story but doesnt have nearly as good power system both are in core similar but one is on good side and the other on bad.
Both have op main characters who formed a nation and seeking knowledge
Both have followers that consider the main character the most powerful
Both have a game like world setting with magic and rpg elements
Both can be ruthless and pure evil at times
Both have overpowered main characters that lead a group of strong subordinates and try to expand the influence of their kingdom. In Overlord the fantasy world is in a game and in the other it is just a fantasy isekai world so there are a lot of similarities between the two.
- main character is stucked in different (fantasy) world
- exploring different world
- building own empire
- OP (and a little bit confused) main character
- funny moments
- main character gain more power and influence
- various nonhuman races and characters
The main characters are reincarnated as a monster with video game like abilities in a different world or realm with lots of different life forms. They have memories of their previous life. They both level up.
Replace the Slime with Spider and there you go, Kumo Desu Ga Nani ka?? I don't wanna call it a complete Rip-off but there are definitely a lot of similarities and so are some differences as well. Give it a go!!
Both storys tells you about an reincarnated who wakes up in another world having the body of an monster (spider/slime), in a world of fantasy where powers like these on games exist, and the MC isn't really the everyday good guy, although isn't too chaotic
If you're looking for a good isekai with a good perspective about the good and the evil, this one may be a good choice. Tell me the truth, u can't stand another good human hero who kills every big bad monster, right? Then let's go, enjoy
Just imagine Rimuru never left the cave and had to fight for his life since lv1, that's this Anime. Unlike Rimuru that met Veldora and became super powerful right away. Kumoko had to start from rock bottom, even getting used to eating other Animals to survive. She didn't start with pain nullification or immunity to damage, she's just a lowly no name tiny Spider.
The anime is not as great as Slime Datta ken but I think the comparison is not fair. If you like comedy and underdog stories then you should watch this and ignore the bad reviews. The CG gets critizised a lot but it's actually not bad because it's only used on the monsters and not on any Anime character. Kumoko is super cute and she has a legendary voice actor.
Over all is a fun watch especially if you liked Slime datta ken. 8/10
The clear similarities include the main character reincarnating in a fantasy world as a monster, first waking up in a cave, learning abilities by defeating cave monsters and possessing a robotic female voice in their head explaining game/world mechanics and new abilities. They take place in strikingly similar fantasy worlds that include dragons and demon lords, as well as magic schools. There are some important distinctions between them though.
For example, the main character of Kumo desu ga stays in the cave for a considerable amount of time by herself while other characters have stories completely separately from her, while Rimuru in Slime is out of the cave fairly early and recruits some followers and makes friends.
Also in Kumo desu ga, an entire classroom of kids is wiped out and reincarnated into the same world and most of them quickly find each other, unlike Slime in which Rimuru is reincarnated by himself but does find very few other people that are also from his world along his journey.
Both are mostly focused on light-hearted fantasy comedy with energetic and charismatic main characters that steadily evolve and become more and more powerful.  read more
Isekai genre anime with reincarnation in monster form (Slime on one side and Spider on the other)
Level up system involve.
Wtf moments shared between them due to the fact of monster - monster interactions or monster- other race interactions.
Both Story are based on Isekai world.Both MC's got op by increasing levels and getting skills from the start.They got reincarnated as a lowly being but got strong like a god of the world through out the series.If you like One you are sure to like the other one.
Both these anime are isekai with the mc being a non-human creature who treats the world like a game.
They also give off a similar vibe with the mc exploring to earn new skills to defeat bigger monsters.
Well,,both are isekaid animes though the story plot are different but i highly recommend "kumo desu ga,nani ka?" if you watched "Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken"....not gonna lie "kumo desu ga,nani ka?" is quite underrated and have low ratings but it deserves a lot more rating and popularity...from my personal view,the animation is quite good and the plot of the story was worthwhile too.i can say that your time is not gonna go to waste if you liked "Tensei shitara slime Datta Ken"
The only similarities between them are both mc are isekai-ed and born in a cave/dungeon. That's all. In term of genre and actual plot, Kumo Desu Ga has better storyline and more fleshed out characters with tons of plot twist.
Slime and Spider are quite similar, in the obvious way that they were reincarnated as monsters, with a much higher power ceiling than any human. Slime is more focused on comedy and adventure for the most part, rather than the constant fighting for survival that Kumoko goes through.
Slime has the benefit of no CGI paralysis demons, though.
jika kamu suka dengan anime "Tensei shitara Slime Datta Ken" saya sarankan juga untuk menonton "Kumo Desu ga , Nani ka?" dikarenakan jalan cerita yang hampir sama,sifat overpower yang menonjol,apalagi komedi yang di sajikan juga bagi saya menarik dan hampir sama!
if you like the anime "Tensei shitara Slime Datta Ken" I also recommend watching "Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka?" because the storyline is almost the same, the overpowered nature stands out, especially the comedy that is presented to me is also interesting and almost the same!
So I'm a Spider, So What? and That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime is very similar, started out with MCs dying and being reincarnated into a fantasy world as the weakest monster in the world. They have to fight their way hard in order to survive. They consume their enemy in order to get stronger, eventually, becoming the strongest monster in the world.
Both anime are extremely similar to each other, if you like That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime you will like So I'm a Spider, So What? and vice versa
Both stories involve protagonists originating from Japan and being transported to a fantasy world with superhuman powers, which propels their power as a monarch. They establish cities with locals, mainly monsters, and come into conflict with fellow humans. Both has comedic moments throughout the story.
Both Slime Tensei and Tsuki ga Michibiku are pretty generic and average isekai with similarities:
* Main characters are very overpowered
* Main character allies a dragon
* Main character helps demi-humans (orcs) build up their lives
Tsuki ga Michibiku is just a worse Slime Tensei + Slime Tensei has much cuter girls
- Both MC are OP.
- Both MC are trying to build a town where everyone can live a happy life.
- Both MC can make a contract with other characters to serve him and given them a name make them stronger.
"Moonlit fantasy" is literally just a worse version of "That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime".
In both the MC is reincarnated to another world with godlike powers, both have super OP followers that would do anything for them (and do most of the fighting), both have a focus around building and maintaining a "monster city". etc, etc.
Slime is better in probably every regard but moonlit fantasy isn't unwatchable, it's about as good as most other generic isekais getting released.
This is for you if you like overpowered OP MCs that build their own community of and for non-humans after getting isekaid. Building the community and experimenting with skills plays a relatively big role in both. Both MC's are admired for their strength and gain loyal followers as well a harem of pretty girls.
- they're both enjoyable and fun Isekai, with lots of comedy
- the main characters are ridiculously over-powered and only get stronger
- their followers are ridiculously over-powered
- there are very few threats that would affect the OP characters
- both feature world exploring, while the MC is trying to adjust to his new life
- they both feature town-building, their inhabitants are made up of different monsters
- both try to establish business such as trading with other countries
- the main characters are level headed, kind, and mega virgins
Both anime are Isekai genre with a similar plotline. Slime focuses more on plot/world-building and fighting while Tuski Ga Michibiku is a more comedic twist on self aware isekai'd MC who tries to live a normal life but develops a similar relationship as in slime with an OP dragon.
Same premise: Japanese guy gets isekai'd, is secretly super OP and has to hold back his immense powers from others, turns monsters into his worshippers, creates villages that he tries to advance using other world knowledge.
Both are very similar, the MCs are transported into a fantasy world after dying in their previous one. They have strong superhuman powers and establish their own society/group as Monarchs/Leaders. The only different thing is that the MCs are different in appearance.
provides the viewers with very wholesome comedy and world-building , centered around an OP isekai'd MC who meets different species of characters throughout his journey who then become the foundation of the nation built . The main highlight between these two MCs is that they both feel empathy towards others as they also suffered the same in the real world , which opens up more about the MC's background.
(TLDR: if you like comedic along with wholesome-paced isekais and see the development of an amazing world / characters , these two are for you)
MC's are OP and both will build a nation where human and mionsters can co-exist. Mc's are very timid and don't want to stand out but eventually they are god-class entities. Isekai anime with character buildup is entangled with comedy and serious scenes both. In both anime, There is a involvement with dragons.
1) The main character is overpowered as heck and people not in his group underestimate his true power
2) Both main characters build their own community in which they rule over
3) Everyone who is around him is yes man. If you liked how the main character could rarely do wrong in the eyes of his followers, this is also a good watch.
4) Both of these animes have side characters that have great energy and it's funny to watch them all bounce off of each other. As well as off of the main character's
Both feature a male character being transported into a foreign world. Where it gains a fellowship among others and builds a nation from nothing. In his country, the male character receives a god-like status.
There is some difference between the two anime:
For slime, the MC died while for Moonlit Fantasy the MC gets transported.
For slime, the MC started out very weak, and have to slowly gain its power thru struggling. While for Moonlit Fantasy, the MC started out quite powerful.
Both are stand out shows in their seasons for being Isekai's that both play with the viewer expectation in a simple way. Changing the status quo in small ways that aren't particularly mind-blowing, but effective and utilized to each of their strengths
Both series have a similar start and both remember more the way to play an MMORPG game where the character has to evolve to be stronger when uses abilities and arms. The protagonists are misunderstood!
These two series are likely similar. Especially on the Isekai genre. Although Tate no Yuusha's main character start with a despair circumstance, but in the end he got a powerful ability. Same with Tensei Slime Main Character, in the beginning, he only just a weak slime. But the he got an overpower ability.
I really recommend these anime, because they really made me enjoy their story.
both have the same story plot where guy finds himself in another world and both involved having to start from scratch in order to be somebody and to be powerful, however in Tensei, the guy is a 30 year old man who died and was reborn as a single cell organism, while in Tate, the guy is a coll student wh started as a low level hero who become a zero and now has turned into an anti hero.
Both series contribute innovative ideas to the extensive genre of the isekai, with simple arguments but which more than manage to immerse the viewer in the plot, something that is not usually easy to do.
Both main characters are summoned/reincarnated in the other world
They have a similar vibe
They have similar art
If you liked one, you will like the other one too
I LOVED both of them so much that I decided to read both mangas
Both of these are isekai animes where both have OP protagonists. But one character steadily becomes powerful while the other one becomes powerful after a lot of hard practicing. Both animes show the ups and downs that the main characters face when the animes progresse.
Main protagonist dies and reincarnates into a fantasy world with swords and magic with his previous life's memory intact. Protagonist is trying to navigate the new world based on their previous experiences. Lots of ecchi-comedy moments and has huge character development for the protagonist since after all in Tensei, protagonist is a slime and in Mushoku Tensei, the protagonist is born as a baby.
Both are isekai animes where are older main character is killed them they reincarnation into a fantasy like land, where they still remember there old life. In both main Characters start a new life in this fantasy land with a new body, new name and new world.
Both are isekai with very high production value. Excellent voice casting, art style, direction, etc. Both feature a main character being reincarnated from our modern world into a fantasy world full of monsters and magic. Have fun!
If you like and enjoy Isekai. Go give this one a try. Rudy might not be the best MC so far in the Isekai genre but he's the one of his kind for sure. Rimuru, on the other hand, is one of the best Isekai protagonists out there. The world-building is really well done in both shows.
In both animes the main character failed to do anything in life and promises redemption in the next one, both main characters are kinda overpowered and easily learn the ways of the new world they got into
Both are isekai anime, both have OP Protagonists with action, humor, and magic(now don't be like "it's not a human its a slime" but trust me, if you are that kind of a person still you will like it, cuz I was that type before I watched this), season 2 is ongoing at the time I'm recommending this (march 2021), has an interesting storyline, great detail to the artwork and animations. Actually its better than Mushoku Tensei in my personal opinion. Try it out, 9.5/10
Two are considered alike in terms of ideas which these shows are able to offer. Wishing for a second chance and what could happen if that desire came true. Living as an another person to an another world to fulfill fresh opurtunities, bringing motivation to anyone who will watch it. So why not give it a try? See for yourself and be inspired to what it has to offer.
They are both of reancarnetion isekai, characters are so much and interesting (But Slime has more character.) main characters are both of going from retionel ways also Mushoku Tensei is shorter so feel boring is little bit hard. (I love Mushoku more 😁)
They’re both isekai and have been reincarnated into different bodies after dying. They’re both OP and have a questionable way of dealing with different situations. (There’s also the manga So im a spider, so what? That id recommend as its really similar to that time i got reincarnated as a slime, they’re both monsters, They’ve both been isekai’d they have skills that they can use at will and are both OP)
Both feature a main character who dies after an unfortunate accident and they get reincarnated into a world with magic with their previous memory intact.
Both have to start at a very weak state and have to slowly grow and learn into their much more powerful state.
In my opinion, these two anime are some of the best anime the isekai genre can offer. I will strongly recommend you to watch both if you enjoy one of them
Though these anime are different in many ways, they are also very similar:
- Both anime take place in a medieval setting in essentially a different world.
- While one MC gets reincarnated in another world and the other one just enters through a game, both MCs start out as a very innocent and naive character who quickly becomes powerful.
- Both MCs got their OP defenses by not wanted to feel pain and gain additional resistances and attacks through experiences with their enemies.
- The MC gains new skills by devouring their enemies.
- Rather powerless MC becomes extremely strong.
- Both MC become leaders (Rimuru of a town and the creatures in it, Maple of a guid, although there is an obvious difference in their leadership skills)
- Also isekai! Though in the second one it's a virtual world
- Both MCs have either a lot of fans or a lot of followers
Both are animes where they start off with the MC's getting OP without really noticing it.
They have the same wave length in terms of comedy and overall feels ig?
Both feel chill but have good action at the same time and the story line doesnt feel left out either in both of these animes.
If you loved Slime give this one a try for sure.
-It has the same "positive" atmosphere of conquering a new world.
-Maple is really likeable and over powered due to her not understanding how the game works and her insane luck (and defense).
-They even have similar abilities, Devour.
-I pick this one over Shield hero because shield hero is more of a "serious" Anime compared to Slime and Bofuri, but Shield Hero is a must watch also.
Just make sure you skip the intro it basically spoils everything that happens in the Anime and it's baffling...
Both shows are about characters gaining overpowered magic skills. Both shows don't take themselves too seriously and are funny.
BOFURI is about a girl who is really good at a video game because she put all her skill points into defense and it happened to be a good strategy. The story covers the impact she makes in the game because of her power.
I think the Slime anime has more enjoyable characters and better world-building.
Similar mechanics, an isekai/fantasy theme, fun characters with the main character gaining more overpowered abilities in similar ways. Bofuri had characters that were more enjoyable, but Slime has much more plot and world development.
Both MC (Maple and Rimuru):
Started very weak and slowly gain their power via eating.
Both have the ability to take little to no damage.
Both become so ridiculously overpowered that they are almost unbeatable.
Both of these amusing shounen series feature someone with modern-day knowledge thrust into a new world where they have to start over. One ends up in a magical world with technology reminiscent of the middle ages, while the other winds up in the distant future where humanity has reverted back to the stone age.
Main Character gets "transported" to a world that is not quite like the one they came from.
Sets out to rebuild/build a civilization from scratch.
Finds a village that ends op helping to kick start civilization.
The Anime Known as "That Time I Was Reincarnated As a Slime," is very similar to doctor stone in very similar ways. Before I go into comparing the two titles, I will contrast the two. Doctor stone is a show of Science, following the main character, Senku, on his journey that goes thousands of years into the future after he turns to stone, as well as the rest of the world. Suprisingly, he is the first one to wake up from his slumber, because of scientific reasoning. The main character of this show is smart, not strong. Slime is an isekai that follows rimuru and tells a tale where he dies as satoru, this 37 year old man that is still a virgin. This story is different for many reasons. One of those many reasons is that rimuru is not as developed with any shifting or conflicting thoughts as senku may have. Instead, his actions in the show are resulted as his death in the real world. This show Is what you would call less rolled out, or elaborate than Doctor Stone. These anime are both similar because the common interests of the main characters are to start civilization up. You could say that Doctor Stone is also somewhat of an isekai. Whether or not, that is my opinion. These two stories have characters that sort of win over different characters with their own tactics, rather than fighting them or the enemy directly. This is used to build up their numbers and increase their strength as a society as the story progresses. The reason you should watch Slime, is because this has a very common interest in doctor stone. Now depending on what you like, a fast paced story or a slow one, that will decide whether this is for you or not. This story is slow, but It does have some truths behind it that are yet to be explained. read more
Both have the MC start from nothing to build a new society. With Senku, he is rebuilding society with the power of science. With Rimuru, he is rebuilding an old village that used to be run by goblins and making more. Both are great in the comedy aspect and have an OP mc in their own ways (Senku with his brains, Rimuru with his slime copy ability)
- Overpowerd Main Character
- Badass Main Protagonist
- Genre: Isekai
- Closed to being in an RPG, "Time that I reincarnated into a Slime" but plot twist, he's rather thrown to be on the Monster Side than the Human side, wouldn't considered much being a villain however "Arifureta" is meant that the main character wants to go home to his normal world but instead he has the power to kill gods.
Both reborn in a new world
both become incredibly op
both gain the power of the monsters they eat
both eat monsters
both started off as weaklings
Arifureta has more of a harem than Tensei but there is the harem element in both.
The main characters of these two anime had a great evolution. At first they were weak, but in the end they were the strongest. If you like to watch the main character develop, this anime is perfect too. The two animes are also similar when it comes to the secondary characters too. Both main characters have strong companions and their number is increasing.
Probably has been said but both have neat similarities.
Both protagonists transported to a world to establish, create and maintain a new type of society that benefits the world they were transported in.
Both go through a multitude of trails and tribulations but goes in with an outlook of not just positivity, but an ideal to better others.
Both world are vibrant, colorful and intriguing cast member and both have stories that go to interesting places that is entertaining.
Both series are isekai's that have the protagonist building a civilization from the ground up. Log Horizon is a true transported to a video game while Slime's world is more a pure fantasy world. They are both animated in a super G rated style. The action is fun, but not long or graphic.
Both have a protagonist in a fantasy-like world that are responsible for developing and leading their "people".
Both are relatively stronger than their opponents but for different reasons.
Neither feels overly serious but don't get too far into some of the fantasy cliches.
This has better comedy while Log Horizon has better "wow" moments.
While both the settings are different (trapped in a game vs reincarnated in another world), they have a similar feel to them. Growing and governing a village from scratch (or a nation, in Slime's case), dealing with other nations and people of power, and being a leader for their people. MC's with big hearts and who wish the best for their people. A large cast of characters that continues to grow during the anime, and that you learn to love. Both are very entertaining to watch, and have some exciting action to top it up.
this anime has quite the good story like those two other animes though in some episodes,you might get bored...i got bored at least but the anime is good if you watch it with patience...i am not saying this is one of the best among the isekai animes but the anime is worthwhile to watch
Both titles feature adult protagonists in seemingly small and “weak” characters, prone to discrimination and underestimation. However, they have used their charisma and knowledge of the real world to improve their situation in the new world, gaining admirers and recognition but attracting danger at the same time. The stories are wholesome and share an almost too “friendly” approach in style, using prominent themes of trust, friendship and family. Ascendance of A Bookworm is more female-friendly as opposed to “Slime” since the latter features a harem (not over the top), big-busted women, and more action. Nevertheless, the attention to world-building and pacing are similarly well done.
Both have Isekai protagonists that transmigrate to a fantasy land and then proceed to take their time establishing themselves in the world.
The slow burn of our protagonists becoming more renown, while gaining skills and connections, has a very similar feel between both shows.
Similar vibes. I would classify them as the same 'type' of isekai. The MC travels to another world and, using his/her skills from our world, improves or better the new world.
Both MCs are kind of know-it-all characters and interestingly, both also have blue hair. They both are a bit too perfect and can do nothing wrong, I guess, but Rimuru (Slime) is also definitely OP.
If you liked Reincarnated Slime's way of building a world narrative slowly over time, Ascendance of a Bookworm does this on a smaller scale but still feels just as rewarding when things are done. Doesn't have much action and is a lot more slice of life isekai, but makes up for it by keeping the idea of the Main character's past life a more central plot point.
- Both MCs are seen as weak until proven otherwise
- Both Mcs are focusing on helping the society around them (and not only) evolve (Myne inventing things and creating her own shop, Rimuru creating a new nation of monsters that unifies different species)
- Light themed anime with a friendly atmosphere (well... mostly)
Ascendance of a Bookworm is an amazing anime about a girl who after being reincarnated into a world filled with a classist society, poverty, magic and most importantly: no books?! Myne's passion for reading is stifled as there are no books available to the commoners, Myne must overcome her mysterious sickness, with friends and family helping her along the way. Her goal? To read books!
Honzuki no Gekokujou is similar to Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken because both animes show strong leads with determination to change the world around them. Both animes also have beautiful scenery and based in a town.
Both started with MC being in a very weak state and having to work hard.
Both have knowledge of their previous life and use that knowledge to make the life of people around them better.
The world-building vibe for both anime is quite similar.
Both male MCs are transported to another world after dying. They also get some cheat skills/powers making them pretty powerful even overpowered compered to others. Furthermore they acquire skills pretty easily.
Both series feature mid-30's salarymen being reborn in a JRPG-based fantasy world. The MC is gifted with extraordinarily OP cheat skills right off the bat and wields god-like abilities (much to the dismay of the supporting cast). The MC gains a large, ever-increasing number of devout followers (or a straight up harem). The opposition, if any, is easily defeated or subdued while the MC grows more and more powerful.
> Both are Isekai series (characters are sent to another world).
> Both main characters are overpowered and deal with "difficult" situations with relative ease.
> Both are set in fantasy worlds (swords, magic, monsters etc.).
> Both have a very laid-back "fluffy" feel. Story arcs are generally focused on making other peoples lives better.
> Both have an English Dub.
> Slime has a more developed story (opinion).
> Isekai Smartphone has major Harem elements.
> Slime's animation is better (opinion).
> Slime is a 25 episode series, Isekai smartphone is 12 (also more likely that slime will get a second season).
> Slime is loved and praised, Isekai smartphone is criticized.
Both are fluffy bubblegum isekai fantasy with OP nice guy protagonist. The way they do "diplomacy" and "politics" is so simplified and it just works out easily that kinda breaks suspension of disbelief. Slime has better story, Smarthphone has harem.
In both series, the MC is extremely powerful. Another similarity is that both of the MCs are reincarnated in a different world, and we also have a harem in both series.
The only major difference is that the MC in "That time I was reincarnated as a slime" was reincarnated as a slime and not as human (like In Another World With My Smartphone)
Both feature MC that died suddenly and got transferred to a fantasy world.
Both MCs gain new skills throughout their journey and slowly become stronger and stronger.
Both MCs care about others around them and will protect them at all costs.
Both MCs are extremely well respected, which as a result attract girls romantically.
Both are isekai anime, which have similar take on that kind of show. They don't take itself seriously and have some great comedy moments.
"Tensei Shitara Slime datta Ken is like Konosuba but with overpowered main protagonist" is how I describe it to most people.
If you enjoy either of these shows, you should check the other one out.
Aside from both shows being isekai, they have similar colour palettes and the same light-heated tone and cheerful cast of characters. They have similar styles of humour since both MCs played video games in their past lives and have similar personalities. The magic systems in both are also similar as they both are based on acquiring powerful skills to become stronger.
I may be a bit biased, but man I love this show, its my favorite show of all time. It is fantastic and has great world building. The reason why I think if you like Konosuba you'll like Tensura is because it has good comedy. It also bring you serious moments and awesome fight scenes with amazing animation and sound design. It starts slow at first but it does pick up and its paced really quickly if you're into that. Season 2 of the series is by far the best part of any series I've ever watched and reason being is it brings out my inner nerd. Season 2 is more on the darker/serious side compared to season 1 but still worth your time! That concludes my recommendation and have a good day :) read more
Both of the main character got reborn as a overpowered being.
The main character of Tensei shitara Slime Datta Ken (TenSura) got reborn as a slime, while on the other hand, Kenja no Mago got reborn as a human being.
The story of TenSura is taking place in a country, while Kenja no Mago is in a academy/school.
If you like isekai anime with overpowered main character, both of these anime will be suitable for you.
Easy-to-watch Isekai, both are a bit superficial (as usual with Isekai) but involve likeable characters with great powers, willing to fully enjoy their new life. If you want to relax/enjoy a positive anime after watching the Mirai Nikki-type, these two animes are for you !
Both are rather OP but relaxed about it
Both MC's get put into another world after they died
Both involve slimes (Tensei the MC is the slime; kami the MC collects them)
Kami is more slice of life with more relaxed vibe. Tensei has more combat but still is about the nice chill moments.
- Slimes. A lot of them.
- Slice of life feeling for both of them, though in That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime not as much
- MC has to fight monsters, though only occasionally
- Mc is constantly trying to evolve when it comes to their shop/town
both have similar vibes when watching.
kami-tachi leans more towards the wholesome-adventure SoL side, while, tensei is more shounen oriented with greater acion. Both animes have OP MC's who get isakai-ed.
If you enjoyed kami-tachi, you may possibly like tensei; there are times where tensai will have a similar relaxed vibe that kami-tachi has throught.
- simply: very similar overall vibe
- main character gets isekai'd
- main character makes a lot of allies due to helping them, unintentionally gains people's respect and they start treating them in a special way
- most people become friends with or love the main character
- focused mainly on those friendly relatioships
- the type of anime you'd watch to relax after a long day
- maybe not the same, but I'd say that a similar colorful art style...
[other than that, Slime is more serious/fantasy&magic/fight focused, Otome is more light/romance/slice of life, i guess]
Both sound like a terrible idea that makes your skin crawl in anicipation of a dumpsterfire. An Isekai with an Op MC that constaly gets new gadgets and followers?
An game reincarnation Isekai were the Harem doesnt just happen incidentaly but is the actual plot? Well. let me say, both of these dont execel at their novel concept, but in execution. And show even the most overused tropes can still be entertaining if done right
Both male MCs are transported to another world after dying. They also get some cheat skills/powers making them pretty powerful in what they are doing. The main similarity is town/farm development from scratch, populated with various race from monsters to elves.
1) Both are reincarnation animes
2) Both have strong main characters, but Farming's isn't as OP as Tensei's.
3) Both have a nice supporting cast where everyone gets along
4) Both have the Main characters become leaders pf a place where monsters/demi humans can take refuge and rest in. So, politicking and diplomacy are common.
If you enjoyed the way that 'No Game No Life' had intellectual battles of wit, the chances are you will also enjoy watching 'Tensei shitara Slime Datta Ken'. They also both have a comedic element that is on a similar level.
-both have overpowered protagonists who are teleported to other worlds
-have similar feels of comedy
-both protagonists have no interest in love but both share their love for...;)
-if you enjoy one of these animes you will def enjoy the other
An anime about slimes
"TenSura" is about a literal slime, while "Slime 300" is about fighting slimes. Nevertheless, both series focus on how a person can be so powerful through the influence of slimes.
Both are about slime, one is about killing slime and one is slime killing everyone else.
Both MC started out as very weak but slowly grow into someone overpowered.
Both MCs receive a lot of respect from others around them.
It'd be pretty obvious ofc, Reincarnated as a Slime and Sword are closely similar to each other.
They have the following:
-The title itself is closely related to each other.
-Both MCs have same skill but in different approach.
-Skill sets are quite same too.
-Monster hierarchy are pretty much the same.
Overall, if you enjoy watching a unique isekai anime with vast powers, skills and wild adventures, then its a must watch!
- Overpowered protagonist.
- The power of friendship.
- The protagonist gathers some kind of a "family" from supporting characters around him.
- Has a fairytale vibe when almost no one from supporting characters can die for real.
Re:Zero and Slime are two sides of the same genre. Re:Zero does a dark and serious isekai to a tee, whereas Slime is the lighthearted power fantasy isekai that isn't so cookie cutter to make you snooze. In the isekai genre these two do it the best.
-Both animes are about the main character transporting into a new world and starts from scratch
-Both of the main characters is extremely OP and gains new skill every time they destroy a monster, making them even more unstoppable
-Meets new people and develops their own community on their own, gathering people and land
-Both main characters have the same personality traits in terms of their humor, attitude, and how they can be sinister at times
-Super fun anime, both light-hearted anime, you'll like one another
Both Rimuru and Yuna is quite similar:
Both got isekai’ed into a foreign world
Both use their knowledge from their previous world to help others around them
Both end up earning a lot of respect from others.
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).
Both animes have a very overpowered main character.
Both awesome to watch for Isekai Fans.
They both lead an "army".
But in Tensei shitara.. the Main character is more nice to others then Ainz is.
I realy love both. So check them out :3
Somewhat similar animes with the main similarity being world development. If you are a fan of Overlord you will most likely be a fan of Slime.
In both animes the main character is overpowered and that is used as a plot device for world building and domination. The main difference is that Overlord is somewhat more "grim".
1. Both MC started their ordinary lives as adults.
2. Both found themselves in an alternate world where they have to start from scratch.
3. Both were able to become powerful mage.
4. Both have a couple of harem members.
1. One MC didn't die when he go transported to the alternate world only to find himself in a body of a 5 year old kid , while the other MC died and was reborn as a slime.
2. One has a kaiju as part of his team while the other doesn't,
That time I got reincarnated as a smile has the same isekai baseline, but profits from far better-exected animation and a more intense storyline. If you liked "Hachi-nan tte, Sore wa Nai deshou!" I am sure you would enjoy the little slimes story at least a bit.
It takes itself and it`s new world more serious and also doesn`t lose the humor on the way.
- OP main character with a "happy-go-lucky" attitude
- Set in medieval fantasy world
- The early arcs concentrate on building the "crew" around the main character
- General vibe and color scheme are similar.
- Both shows can take themselves seriously when they want to, but there's always room for a bit humor, too.
- distinct and interesting side characters
Both are isekai's with OP MC'S
Both have a "Demon Lord" Theme common in them
Both focus on building a team of powerful people (7 deadly sins and Rimuru's entourage)
In both the anime, all side characters are not at max power at first but become stronger and stronger till they reach their full strength.
The only difference is that in 7 deadly sins, there is no world building involved.
Same concept, a useless body collects different skills by absorbing/defeating and becomes powerful. While slime relies mainly on skills, in the fruit of evolution it has more like a RPG levelling system.
Both series have similarities
- Have element of trade between regions
- Establish relations or peace between regions
- MC traveled another countries to negotiate with the owner / king for cooperation
- Build a trading country
- Have OP MC
- Bring enemy characters as partners or guards and make MC the master
1. Both anime have mc that start of weak but latter become op
2. rimuru and rudeus were middle aged men and reincarnate after dying
1. rimuru is slime while rudeus is a human
2. slime is about building a new town while mushoku tensei is about mc overcoming is past to become a better person
- The main characters both have petite bodies, blue hair, and are very OP
- Set in a medieval fantasy world
- Eye-catching action scenes with fun elements
- The supporting characters are also particularly interesting and powerful
Note: Magi is not an isekai animea
Looking for a slow burn fantasy? Get ready to delve into narrative-driven action and adventure! These two series involve worldbuilding that brings together human and non-human species. The main characters bring together a diverse cast as they seek to grow stronger and achieve happiness not just for themselves, but for everyone around them as well.
Even though they are fundamentally different genres, both have a strong emphasis on friendship, solidarity and never - ending adventures. Plus, hxh includes an isekai arc, and TSSDK is an isekai itself.
They are both animes that put a very unique twist on the Isekai genre. And focus a lot on the world-building instead of an overpowered MC. Granted Slime does have an overpowered MC but it still makes up for it by the effort it puts into the side characters.
the amount of politics in these 2 anime is simmilar as in the poweplay between the different nations.
gate is about a nation trying to civilize a different world as in teaching and integrating modernday values into an seemingly uncivilized world, and slime is about a creature starting his nation in a similar world to be honest but we get more content about the relations between the different species in slime.
- Both have protagonists that are ridiculously OP
- Both have magic involved
- Both protagonists share their magic with their followers, allowing them to earn respect and build empires.
- Both have some comedic moments (at least I think so)
Tensei shitara Slime Datta Ken is a fantastic anime and yes, ML is overpowered, but he is pretty humble too. This show also has 2 seasons (but if you count season 2 part 2 as a third season, then 3) and a movie!
Both have kingdom building and are isekai characters who are the rulers of their respective nations.
in both slime and realist hero they are very diplomatic in running their nation and believe in development of their nation.
Both have great art and interesting main characters.
In both main character has some kind of group with him/her.
Both are funny in their own ways.
I would just love to see them in recommendations because I enjoyed both.
A 30 year old man is transported to another world!
Unfortunately the action from Slime is not translated into the farming life presented in Kaiko Sareta Ankoku Heishi... but village development and fan service definitely is.
While Kaiko may have more fanservice than Slime, the evolution of a settlement from humble beginnings to prosperous living is shared between the two. Though slime has more of an action tag to it, Kaiko has more of a slice of life feel. Both share comedy equally and hopefully will fill that hole that both of these series leave after you finish them and/or anticipate another season.
Both have action , fights , and fantasy and a very interesting story , although completely different from each other . One is darker than the other , where the MC trains hard to become strong and protect his remaining family while the other might seem a bit more chill , where the MC is OP but the MC has something to protect too . Either way I enjoyed both very much , both are , to me , very good anime
Both animes take place in a fantasy setting w/ dragons.
and as an added bonus much like how the girls went into the dragons body in That Time I got reincarnated as a Slime has a dragon being absorbed by a Slime's body
Although the theme is different, the struggles of main characters are similar, which is non existent. The main characters are never in trouble, because both are genius and overpowered. They are surrounded by people who revere power more than anything.
I think these two series are similar but in a bad way.
Both anime share a super strong main character who can pretty much do anything with magic. Both have a focus on empire building. Both Main Characters have strong friends that look up to the MC. Both anime are also pretty laid back, but Reikenzan has less adventure and a stronger focus on training to become better
Both main characters have reincarnated. Both characters held skills that astonish their surroundings. Having charisma and power they change the environment. I like how they do things that break the common sense of their surroundings.
Both present a magical setting. A vast world of mystery and monsters.
I always found myself entertained while watching each episode. How the characters solved their problems, the locations they visited, Rimuru´s humor, Elias´s wisdom and mystery.
Both series share the bonds of family. Rimuru builds up the goblin village and eventually more residents of different races settle there. He will seek solutions to protect his citizens and if necessary resort to violence. Elias sees Chise as his familY, and i believe he cherishes her more than anyone or anything.
1. You can find goblins in both
2. The MC is overpowered
3. Races and classes seem pretty familiar to me
1. Tensei shitara Slime Datta Ken is an Isekai while Goblin Slayer is not
2. Reincarnated as a slime seems more of a comedy than a drama (I mean aside from the fight between demon lord and Rimuru, I didn't see any dramatic moments, meanwhile Goblin Slayer is more deep, dark anime, we all remember that scene from ep 1)
3. Smashable Goblins (When you say Goblin Slayer you mean rape, ugly goblins, etc. Meanwhile when you say Reincarnated as a Slime you mean waifu goblins that are actually cute) read more
- Both anime have an overpowered main character who is laid back and knows about his power, both have a sense of justice and righteousness
- Both anime have multiple comedy scenes and very memorable supporting characters. Both of them form an entourage of powerful friends who aid them in battle.
- Both characters attract powerful enemies and hence both anime have mutiple fight scenes
-Both anime have a power ranking system (SS Rank, A rank etc.)
- However, unlike OPM, Rimuru's power grows steadily during the series whereas Saitama is OP from the start
- Also, Slime has much more world building than OPM
-Both are Isekai's and in both of them, the main protagonist builds a team of other characters to aid him. Both involve world building although it is much more significant in Slime
- Both the MC's (Rimuru and Kazuma) are vary of stereotypes and jinxes and both make fun of them regularly
- Both are comedic and don't take themselves seriously
- Both anime have a fair bit of fanservice although none of them ever venture into any significant romantic relationship between the characters.
- Both have a very powerful man protagonist (aqua and rimuru)
- Unlike slime where most of the characters act rationally are loyal to Rimuru and actually do the right thing without help from the MC, you have dumbasses like Megumin and Aqua in konsuba who are literally useless without the MC.
Both feature a person (or slime) of seemingly dubious origins, yet somehow being able to unite a multi-racial force in order to start a nation. Much of the plot focus on both the formation of the new countries and the trials that the new nations face.
Both main characters lead a group of monsters. Along with wanting to leave humans leave. Their followers both have undying loyalty. Along with op powers whether they are magic or other abilities. I would 100% recommend both.
Both series involve overpowered protagonists that you end up rooting for regardless, due to the shows' abilities to focus on minor characters and their growths alongside the MC. As well as this, both protagonists kinda involve some sort of progression that you get invested in; with Slime you end up rooting for Rimuru's village's growth; with One Punch Man you end up rooting for Saitama's recognition in the Hero Association. All fights are full of hype- especially the ones where you know that the protagonist wins, and acts as catharsis when you see the villain finally get beat up.
Both anime are incredibly wholesome and fun to watch while Tensura shows some action and wholesomeness, Barakamon shows us the daily life of the protagonist and wholesomeness. In short both stated anime are incredibly unwinding and can be watched at a quick pace.
