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 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.

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 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.

- 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 with an overpowered protagonist and both are just fun shows that don't take themselves too seriously.

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 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  read more

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

- 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 anime. If you like this kind of stories, you will like both. Although re-zero has an slower start, and Tensei Slime has a really quick start, both are really good anime.

They have similar visuals. (Flip flappers has better visuals tho.) They both are hearth warming. They both have simple and peaceful characters. They both are fantasy-action. -They both have loli mc.-(lol)

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.
