6. Knight's & Magic
This is generally an action fantasy anime. The main reason why it is similar to Overlord is that something happened to the main character and somehow he ended up in a different world or kingdom. The title somehow describes what the anime is all about, knights in the form of MECHAs (gigantic machines/robots) and magic since people in this world can use magic and the main characters is also great at it too due to what he does in the real world. Magics can be used to create weapons and a lot of stuff. In general, animation and music is great in this anime. This is an excellent watch for anime lovers who are into Mechs, monsters, and action. There is just a different feeling when you watch Mechas in a fight scene, it is something that's really cool and fun to watch.
Another similar thing to Overlord that this anime has is the experience of the main character in fulfilling something that he really loves which is somehow difficult to have in the real world. For those who want to see a lot of fights scenes, this anime will not fail you as there are a lot of great fights against beasts and monsters.
7. Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash
The story is about some teenagers who were transported to the fantasy/different world which resembles the environment of a video game. This is the main reason it earned its spot on this list. If you have already done some research and found out about this anime, you would have probably read some negative comments. But, I would like to remind you that every one of us is different and to some, this might not satisfy, but to others, Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash is excellent to watch. You do have to lower your expectations when it comes to fights scenes since it is not as fast paced as other anime series like SAO.

Most of the main characters for me looks cool and you can easily relate to their characters and their experience, especially considering that they suddenly appeared to the new world. The overall idea for me with this anime is the development of the individual characters. How they cope up and adapt to their current conditions and everything in between trying to live in a different world and discovering their own strengths and weaknesses which is somehow the same in the real world but just in a different environment or perspective. Thus, you have to prepare yourself for this anime has the high chance of getting to your emotions.
I also would like to mention that I give a 5 star to the overall design and animation of this anime series. The feel is very new and you'll see that the scenes were greatly produced which you will surely appreciate.
This anime series fits this list because the setting is in a fantasy world where you would usually see the environment in bright colors, the use of magic, fighting knights and more. And one person was suddenly transported to this world. The unique thing is that the main character has to constantly die to figure out has to go through with certain situations. Unlike other anime series like Overlord, the main characters do not die, mainly because they are just very powerful or they want to survive because dying would be the end of them. Here, the main character dies and then resurrected. Making it more like a game where one can just get started again when its Game Over.
One thing that you have to watch out is the lots of blood in this anime due to the killings, especially on moments when someone is about to die. If you are OK with this, like what you see in Tokyo Ghoul, then this is fine. But, if you think it's too gross, then you're better off trying out other series. Additionally, it will come to a point where it becomes irritating seeing the main character die and be brought to life again. Still, the anime is great to watch due to the fight scenes and what the main character has to experience and endure.
9. Ixion Saga DT
Still another fantasy anime but with a lighter side when it comes to action with lots of fun stuff. It's definitely the anime you are looking for it you are looking for a nice anime brighten you up. It's an adaptation of an online game which is the main reason why it is similar to the famous anime series Overlord. The main character was just literally thrown into a different world after talking to a character of the game. The characters are interesting with very peculiar names which will help you realize what this anime is all about.
This anime series is best for those who are looking for adventure with a great amount of fun stuff from jokes you can surely relate in time. Whether you like the joke or not, somehow it would make you laugh. You might also observe that some scenes in this show are just stupid, but it's what makes it fun. Remember, this is light anime. If you are not the serious type of an anime enthusiast, go check this out.

If you are an RPG player, you will certainly understand the goal of the main character Sakamoto in creating an unbeatable and very strong game character. Somehow, he was transported to the game world and luckily with the powers of the character he created. Thus, making him very powerful in this new world.
