The main character FOR log horizon became overpowered during the mid episode of the entire season, FOR overlord the main char is already overpowered in the very beginning and usually shove his authority among enemies and comrade .

Log Horizon and Overlord are both world building and story driven shows set in a fantasy setting. Log Horizon is the story of players being trapped in a game after a new expansion launched. We follow our main characters as they face PvE and PvP problems which arise. This show focuses on the world and its politics with a nice follow up of traditional MMORPG style action. Log Horizon mainly revolves around the plot of being stuck in a game but not knowing when/how they will get out, and focuses on making living in the game bearable by being the heroes/adventurers. Overlord is the story of our   read more

Same concept about being stuck in a RPG world. However what these two does is creating an economy and a leading world so they can keep the world going. These have low focus and how to get out and has alot to do with adapting to their new setting. They're both very strategical anime and is heavy-dialouge anime which doesn't focus on action that much. What i do think these anime series could have evolved was giving out a plotline which they'd follow instead of taking irrelevant side quest. However what Log Horizon did better was in a way or two using these side quest   read more

Protagonist was stuck in another world, similar to his gaming world. Protagonist was at a high level when he got stuck in another world. Protagonist is good with planning. Protagonist is a leader of a guild.

Both are video-game-themed. Both anime gravitate around the fact that they are stuck, in their respective games. Both are MMORPG's. Both have main characters that are overpowered, in their own way. Overlord is rather darkly theme, but lightens up every once in a while. Log Horizon focuses on a sort of political complication, and explains things in extraordinary detail. Overlord will have, or, depending on the time, has, 13 episodes. Log Horizon has 50. Log Horizon is more viewer-friendly, and as such is acceptable for viewers around 13 years old. Overlord is mainly for people around 18-30, as it includes gore and slightly lewd activities. Both   read more

Both share the concept of life inside a game. The main characters of both shows are intelligent, scheming and strong. Shiroe mainly focuses on outwitting his opponents while Momonga will often defeat his opponents in battle. The main difference is the overarching plot of the shows: Log Horizon focuses on the daily lives and adventures of the characters as they try to find a way out of the game. Overlord's protagonist Momonga, on the other hand, completely drops the idea of escaping and focuses on world domination within the game.

Player(s) of a MMORPG that are trapped in the world of the game without a clue on how to return home, but the protagonist of Overlord don't care about this, contrariwise... different from the protagonist of Log Horizon.

Both have the same situation where the MC got trapped in the game, the differences were, in LH there are multiple MC that were involve in the anime, while in Overlord its only one MC who is involved in the anime.

Stuck in a game world? And you just happen to be a powerful, almost villainous seeming, character in the game? Well it's bound to lead to interesting outcomes right :D The animes are very similar in terms of atmosphere and dynamics and it's rather clear from three episodes in that enjoying one of these means you definitely need to watch the other!

The whole trapped in an MMO theme is real in both though the only diff, imo is that the MC are slightly more badass!

It has the same MMORPG feel where the MC(s) are trapped in an MMORPG environment and they have to face the problems that they are presented with in the ' New World '.

If you liked the mmorpg turning reality setting of LH, Overlord is the same thing, just that the protagonist is a vastly overpowerd anti-hero.

Their story isn't all about "getting out from the game". Both are about managing in the game and raising fame.

Both main characters are trying to make the world a better place, yes in Overlord the MC does it in a darker way but it's still trying to better the world. Both series are linked to MMORPG's. There is political and territorial tension in both series. MAGIC. Both MC are seen as evil by others.

Overlord is an action-adventure-game anime that revolves around a player, under the username of Momonga, is left behind inside the game after it was supposed to close. Momonga, without his friends, waited out the closing of the gaming only to find himself stuck in it afterwards. He then started to investigate on the situation and seek answers. Just like Shiroe as a strategist, Momonga shares his own experience and skill in the field of combat that he utilized well in order to find what he is looking for.

Both MC's in these anime are overpowered magic casters who are very good at coming up with strategic battle plans. They also do a good job of exploring how powerful world-class magic and super-tier magic can be, and the potential it has to shape the world. If you enjoy the MMORPG genre, I would definitely recommend giving these a shot!

It is another body and soul telleported into a video game-like world

A careful plan is needed to understand this new world that surrounds us. We must first secure our living place and then probe in the outside world to learn more about it, then, conquer it. Moral of the story : Don't fall asleep in your Nerve Gear. Or do, if you're into video games and do not fear for your life.

- They both come from the real world, and they go in a fantasy world (Isekai) - The main characters come from a guild - They are leader of a group - The universes take place in a "game" - Fantasy anime
report Recommended by Arukami
Both main characters of these anime get stuck in a game and don't know why. They try to figure out how to get back to their own worlds in similar ways etc gathering information about the worlds they are stuck in. They also try to tackle the worlds that they are in either by conquering or building society, in both anime their in game levels actually matter. Both anime make a focus on making the most out of a bad situation.

I think the popular response to Log Horizon is to call it similar to SAO. However, I think there is a deeper similarity between Log Horizon and Overlord. Both put more of an emphasis on the actual videogame mechanics of the world around them, at least from the perspective of the protagonists. Likewise, both are not as concerned with finding an escape from the videogame worlds; rather, they seek ways to thrive within those worlds. I have only seen S1 of Overlord, so I can't speak for the rest of it, but if you enjoyed either S1 of Overlord or Log Horizon, then the other   read more
