Both series are Isekais told in a more immersive way. The Main character is not any generic overpowered MC but a well-thought character with personalities and ambitions for a 2nd chance of life in a completely new world. The storytelling is written to slowly build the character development of our MC and to show us the world as well as to show us the life of the MCs and their adventures. The difference is that Mushoku tensei have a lot of NSFW stuff, especially the MC being a pervert, while The faraway paladin focuses more on overwordly stuff such as fictional religions and gods.

Both of two stories characters developed in the similar way. Both of them are naive in their world and try to learn new things -Similar atmosphere -Similar art -Beautiful work of music -Both manifests happiness beside bitterness of life

They both have the same sort of feel to them , even the mc look similar to each other , they both have the calming atmosphere even though its actually quite serious there soundtracks feel kind similar too i think u will like rokka no yuusha if u liked this one though rokka no yuusha is only fantasy not isekai whereas this one is isekai

1) Both anime have us following the adventure's of the MC who is related to amazing hero's of their time 2) Both MC's grow up to be powerful and have others rely on them during their adventuress 3) Both are fantasy anime where we go on adventures and things from the past affect the preset. Yea, if you like a good story about past hero's raising the next generation of hero's and their stories' being past down through time, then they are similar.

1. Both are Isekai anime with OP MC 2. Both are trained by 3 exceptional personalities in magic, household and combat But the story plot is completely different for them. Kenja no mago has romance, and some more things

Paladins are usually bunch of self righteous a holes. Same goes for exorcists or others dealing with supernatural. Will and Natsume are different. Compassion is more important than purity for these guys.

Both are Isekais that sticks out from many other shows. The storytelling takes our focus away from the MCs and focuses more on the worldbuilding. The authors have both spent time creating their own magical system, culture, politics and concepts as well as well-developed main characters. Also, the stories are polar opposite with Will being a paladin and have blessings from a god while Subaru is cursed with "Return by death" by a witch.

Both shows take place in a fantasy setting and have main characters with unique circumstances who work hard for their abilities. Additionally, both shows have the main characters working in relation to a fantasy church structure with the MC from Great Cleric working as a cleric and MC from Faraway paladin working as knight.

1. Exploring a world full of undead. 2. Mysterious themes about identity and how this world works. 3. Main character is raised by the undead.

There are some direct parallel to the what happens to both of the main characters during the course of the shows.

Both MCs are reincarnated and they are both really strong. Both MCs are also connected to monsters. Both MCs are pretty strong and OP. They have a similar feel.
