If you likedOverlord
...then you might likeTensei shitara Slime Datta Ken
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".

Similarities: >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. Differences: >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 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.
Almost the same premise without the shitty secondary characters stories (lizard men arc) and without the horrible CGI that ruins the series
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 read more

MC super OP Reborn in a fantasy world Gathers (or has) loyal and powerful followers MC is generally a decent bloke No harem Overlord starts to get a bit more anti-hero later on.
It is similar because in Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken Rimuru built his own country like Overlord that Ains start to create his own kingdom.

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!
- Both very OP - Non-human - Both in their 30s - Loyal Followers Just watch it!

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.

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 Mcs are loner humans that get trapped in a fantasy world in an inhuman/monstrous body. And With their overpowered abilities they start their conquest of said Fantasy world.

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
Both set in different worlds Both MC are OP Both MC learn their new world

Overpowered main character from different world. Subordinates are loyal to him. Main character plans to build nation.
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.

Same isekai feeling. Both characters are trying to establish a nation and they both have strong loyal servants

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 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.

Isekai OP MC Worldbuilding Honesty two of the best anime I've watched
Both MC are OP but overlord is dark themed and has a villainous protagonist while Tensei shitara Slime Datta Ken is more heroic.
Both anime has the main character transferred to another world as a non-human creature, and become the ruler of a kingdom.

Similarities: -They both have an overpowered MC -Both have city building elements -Both MC's came from 'our world' -Both have/acquire loyal servants Differences: -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 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.

The mcs are pretty similar in power capacities, but slime dude's a bit more of a GOOD guy (a quality ainz is slowly losing)
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 main characters is op >Both Reborn in a fantasy world >MC of both animes are non-human
This series has something in common where the two main characters are kings or leaders in their territories, both characters also have very strong and loyal subordinates.
Themes of conquering, world takeover, and colonizing

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.
Both power fantasies, the only difference is that in overlord the mc starts being a bad guy right away, while slime has the mc be a good guy at the start
bouth are isekai over powered main character who is from other world and is non-human with non-human army it's like taking over world and making it better place
Isekai (from a middle aged man) OP MC Building a small city Protecting natives in that area
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.

Both protagonists build their kingdom for their goal. Finding people from Japan
Similar themes adapting a cheerful slime starting with nothing building a new life in a new world vs an evil empire with top tier allies, items and kingdom to a new world as an Isekai.
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 are Isekai, both have strong subordinates, both all subordinates consider him a great genius, both seek to build a peaceful country.

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.
Both stories present the Main Character getting transported to a parallel world where they become overpowered rulers, with their territory and followers.
