Overlord outshines any other Isekai anime by a wide margin. Despite Overlord’s tremendous success among anime fans, the makers waited four years before releasing its fourth season. And now that it has concluded, there is no assurance that the new season will be released soon. Therefore, fans have no choice but to wait for the sequel, regardless of how long it takes.
However, until Overlord returns for a new season, we can watch something with a similar vibe. However, the list we’ve compiled does not include anime series that solely serve as a replacement for Overlord, but have their cult following. Therefore, even if Overlord does not return for a dog’s age, these shows will prevent you from missing it.
10 The Misfit Of Demon King Academy
This series has nothing to do with gaming like Overlord, but it follows the notion of a super-powered protagonist. While Momonga is transferred to a new world, Anos Voldigoad is resurrected to reclaim his position as Demon King. The second season of the sitcom has recently been officially announced and will premiere in 2023.
Anos Voldigoad gives his life to end a protracted conflict between humans and demons. Now, two thousand years later, he is born with the same knowledge and abilities as his former incarnation. To become the Demon King once more, however, he must first graduate from the Demon King Academy.
9 That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime
The Sekai anime That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime is based on a popular Japanese fantasy light novel by Fuse. The series’s 51 episodes are a substantial time commitment, though. But if you enjoyed Overlord, you should check it out.
Satoru Mikami, a 37-year-old Tokyoite, was born and raised in Japan. He leads a good life till an assailant takes his life. As he breathes his last, he hears a voice telling him to carry out a series of instructions, and the next thing he knows, he’s reborn as a slime with extraordinary abilities in a world he has never seen.
8 One-Punch Man
Despite their obvious differences, Overlord and One Punch Man share a common theme: heroes with godlike powers. No one stands a chance against Ainz and Saitama for an extended period. Momonga, like Saitama, put in a lot of time and effort to level up in the game and become the strongest character possible.
In contrast to the typical anime protagonist, Saitama has no desire for greater strength and would be satisfied simply by facing a worthy opponent. Saitama joins the Hero Association to help with global dangers, but not even the strongest of them can take a punch from him.
7 The Rising Of The Shield Hero
Overlord and The Rising of the Shield Hero share many similarities, including the teleportation of video game characters to another planet, the use of magical abilities and artefacts, and the introduction of unexpected complications. The show’s 8.0 rating on IMDB says much about its success, and the second season just premiered.
From what I understand, the plot of the anime revolves around four heroes who are called upon to travel to an uncharted world and prevent a disaster called Waves from befalling it. Each of the four heroes carries a unique weapon that increases their chances of survival in the hostile environment. Naofumi, the protagonist, takes on the role of Shield Hero, the lowest tier of heroes. Everyone else may have been wrong about him, but his commitment and reliable companions show them wrong.
6 No Game, No Life
Picture a gamer who loves video games so much that they would risk their lives to live in a virtual world. Sora and Shiro, like any other gamers, jump at the chance to enter the magical world where gaming outcomes have eternal consequences. Especially if you enjoyed Overlord, you should check out No Game, No Life for its unique contribution to the isekai subgenre.
Sora and Shiro are brothers and are widely regarded as the top gamers in the world. It’s a gamer’s dream come true: after vanquishing Tet, the god of games from another universe, they get to dwell in his realm. At first, they think it’s a prank, but soon they discover that they’ve been transported to the other universe of Disboard, where their new gaming experience can begin.
5 The King’s Avatar
This is not an anime, but a donghua instead (Chinese animation.) As a result, lovers of anime will like The King’s Avatar even if it is very different from Overlord. Ye Xiu, like Suzuki Satoru, is one of the best in her field. Unlike Ainz, he doesn’t wind up in another dimension, but rather, he’s kicked off the team.
Ye Xiao was the best player in the history of the MMORPG Glory, despite being abandoned by his buddies and subsequently expelled from the squad. He starts over with a brand new account and tries to reclaim the glory that was taken from him.
4 Death March To The Parallel World Rhapsody
The protagonist of this anime is not a gamer, but rather a programmer who becomes immersed in the video game world he designed. It only seems just to reward the tireless efforts of the game designer who brings joy to so many others. The series contains just 12 episodes spread across a single season, making it ideal for viewers who prefer shorter isekai anime.
3 Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls In A Dungeon?
Everything you might desire from a fantasy anime is here: gods, demons, magic, powers, weapons, romance. Ainz’s aspiration to become the world’s greatest explorer mirrors that of the protagonist, who wants nothing more than to become famous and unrivalled in strength.
It all takes place in the made-up city of Orario, where our heroes face off against a variety of creatures in the show’s Dungeon to gain experience and level up. The series’ protagonist, Bell Cranel, had his life saved by a beautiful swordswoman, and ever since then, he’s been driven to become the greatest adventurer possible, all so that he might be with her.
2 Re: Zero − Starting Life In Another World
The term Re: Zero is well-known in the anime community, and the series’ title describes itself. The protagonist travels to another planet and discovers he has superpowers, the most important of which is the ability to change the course of time so that he can keep coming back from the dead. Subaru Natsuki’s many talents will bring to mind Ainz’s many facets.
Subaru and his travelling partner both perish soon after being summoned to another timeline. But he soon finds out that he’s been resurrected a few hours before the catastrophe. Through this power, he resurrects her friend Emilia so that she may ascend to the throne.
Have you ever imagined what it would be like if our modern military fought against beings from another world who possessed magical abilities? In Gate, this is what occurs when a mysterious portal appears in Tokyo, releasing monsters, dragons, and other magical beings into the actual world.
Japan then formed the Japanese Self-Defense Force, a unique unit tasked with establishing peace treaty talks with the people on the other side of the gate. The Otaku leader Yuji Itami keeps the unit under strict surveillance by the Japanese authorities.
