Overlord anime is growing in popularity today so if you are already finished with watching season 1 episodes and wanted to watch an anime with resemblance, this is the page you are looking for. This page will contain the best anime series like Overlord and we will do our best to keep this updated when a new one comes up. This is just a recommendation so you are free to watch which anime show you want to try watching.
There are actually a lot of anime identical to Overlord and this list recommends the best ones. Due to the growing popularity of online gaming, MMORPG anime like Overlord is also a popular option for fanatics these days.
Please before you continue…
Log Horizon and Overlord are closely similar mainly because both the protagonist and other characters in the anime series are transferred and stuck in a role-playing game RPG. They do not know and could not explain how they end up being inside the game. Much more how to get out from their current world. Both the main characters are overpowered OP, but I think Ainz Gowl of Overlord is more OP. Though Shiroe of Log Horizon is also powerful, there are also other characters closely as powerful as he is. In overlord, so far the original community in the game is not that much of a threat. But in Log Horizon, the established community already is a threat to the good guys in the anime series.
Though these 2 anime series are closely the same, there are also differences. So far, in Overlord the main protagonist is the only known person transported to the game while on Log Horizon many players were stuck. There is also a big difference in the plot as Ainz Gowl wanted to stay in the game as he does not have any reason to go back to reality as he thinks life n the real world is boring. For Log horizon players, they are doing their best to stay safe, alive with hopes of going back to the real world soon in the guidance of the main character Shiroe.
Sword Art Online
Sword Art Online is identical with Overlord Anime mainly because both the main characters are stuck in the MMORPG game they are played. We can also say that both protagonists are overpowered OP due to their significant familiarity with the game aside from the skill and power they have. In Overlord only one player, the protagonist was stuck in the game while in Sword Art Online, there were many. They are currently logged in when something happened in the game and their log out button suddenly became inaccessible.
The big difference with SAO is the fact that what happens in the game also happens in reality. When you die in the game, you end up dying in the real world as well. As to how this happens, it would be best that you watch the anime series. So this means that all players in SAO are doing their best to complete the game in order to get out while making sure that they survive. If you think about it and you are an MMORPG player as well, this would be same how difficult especially for those who play the role of tanks right?
Personally, after I watched the first episode of this anime series, it only took me several days to finish the whole season 1. It’s how interesting this anime is so I highly suggest you check it out.
Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri
Though Gate and Overlord are matching when it comes to the fact that people from real world are going to another virtual or different world, there is a big difference. This is the fact that the whole concept of Gate is not in a game. Again, they are still similar due to the fact that main characters enter a different world. In Gate Anime, this is done through a big gate that suddenly appeared in Japan. This gate leads to another world which is connected to a different time or civilization. The main concept of the anime is solving political issues which also happens on any RPG. In both anime series, there are other creatures aside from people like elves, monsters, dragons, a devil, and others.
My main opinion Gate Anime is that it offers a different type of anime series because two different worlds suddenly became connected where people from the modern world enters the other world where guns and technology yet did not exist. The same thing as with the other characters in the other world, they were able to enter the modern world and are surprised by the things they see and discover. It’s a fun anime series and light but when the battle starts, it’s really good to watch.
No Game No Life
Did it come into your mind that a fictional world would be better than the real world? Well, if you are too bored and doesn’t have many things to do in life, this might come into your mind. In the anime, No Game No Life, 2 siblings (Sora and Shiro) were suddenly transported into a different world – more like a gaming world. This fact makes it similar to Overlord. These 2 immediately had an advantage as they are pretty much good when it comes to playing games online. They do it better than interacting with other people in real life. And since the world is about gaming, these 2 good excited and feel in love with the new place.
If you are looking for an anime series with a comedy value, this is it. Plus, it does not have the high degree of violence, unlike Overlord. And above all, the animation was well created. You will see that there was an effort in making the animation – from the background, characters to fights screens. A lot of reviews say good stuff about this anime saying the hype is real and most of them immediately got hooked when they watched the first few episodes.
An obvious thing that is common in No Game No Life is the impeccable fanservice. You’ll understand when you watch it. The same as with other anime series like Overlord, this one is also set in a mysterious world where gaming settles everything. It highlights strategic game play plus comedy making it good to watch for online gamers.

Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls In A Dungeon?
Even with the title itself, you will immediately know that it will have an RPG concept in it due to the word Dungeon. However, the title itself is way too long and it simply doesn’t help in selling to the anime enthusiasts. Let’s be real, most of the time, we decide which anime show to watch through the title and with a title like this, you most likely would turn to a different option.
