6 Anime Like KonoSuba Fans Should Watch

Here are some similarly-themed anime that KonoSuba fans should check out!

KonoSuba is one of the most popular comedy anime series thanks its parodies of the isekai genre and video game tropes. The story focuses on a NEET who gets re-incarnated in a fantasy world after an embarrassing death while buying a video game.

Here are some similarly themed anime that KonoSuba fans should check out!

1. Senyuu.

Senyuu.

Quick pitch: 1,000 years ago, the Demon King wrecked havoc in the human realm until he was sealed away by the hero Creasion. In present time, a hole has appeared which acts as a gate between the demon and human realms. It is up to Creasion’s descendent to re-seal the Demon King…but there are 75 possible candidates! Alba is number 45, and with the help of the sadistic knight Ross, he embarks on a journey to fulfill his possible destiny.

Watch if: You love KonoSuba‘s jokes about video games and the isekai genre. Senyuu. was among the first series to parody both topics, albeit in a short form format.

2. Outbreak Company

Outbreak Company

Quick pitch: Shinichi is an otaku thanks to having a light novel author as a father and an eroge illustrator as a mother. While his “special knowledge” has no use in the real world, he is chosen by the government to be a moe missionary to a fantasy world.

Watch if: You enjoy KonoSuba​’s light and comedic take on the isekai genre.

3. Ixion Saga DT

Ixion Saga DT

Quick pitch: While playing an MMORPG, Kon receives an online request from a female character. Thinking he found an online girlfriend, Kon is mysteriously taken to a fantasy world and accidently saves a princess. With no way to back home, Kon becomes a member of the princess’ honor guard.

Watch if: You want a series that is as close to KonoSuba as possible. Ixion Saga DT has a faster and wilder sense of humor, but is filled with parodies.

4. Kannagi: Crazy Shrine Maidens

Kannagi: Crazy Shrine Maidens

Quick pitch: Jin carves a statue out of a sacred tree trunk for a school project. To Jin’s surprise, the statue transforms into a goddess named Nagi, who takes her anger out on Jin for destroying her tree.

Watch if: You enjoy KonoSuba purely for the antics of Aqua, Darkness, and Megumin.

5. Is It Wrong to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?

DanMachi: Is It Wrong to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?

Quick pitch: Bell has hopes of becoming a great adventurer so he can impress his crush Ais. In order to become an adventurer, a person must join a familial. Since Bell is incredibly weak, he can only join Hestia’s familial…and is her only member.

Watch if: You love KonoSuba​’s video game and adventure parodies. DanMachi is not an isekai anime, but it does have a lot of callbacks and tropes related to old-school adventure games.

6. The Devil is a Part-Timer!

The Devil is a Part-Timer!

Quick pitch: The Demon Lord Satan was about to conquer the land of Ente Isla, but he plans are stopped by a hero named Emilia. Forced to flee through a portal, Satan finds himself in modern day Tokyo. With no powers or money, he finds a part-time job at a fast food joint called MgRonald’s just so he can pay rent.

Watch if: You enjoy KonoSuba​’s unique take on the isekai general. The Devil is a Part-Timer! is more of a reverse-isekai in that a fantasy character enters the real world.
