Konosuba is a legendary anime in the
A new season airing is now focused on Megumin’s story: KonoSuba: An Explosion on This Wonderful World!
Kazuma Satou si a regular Otaku show ears tracksuits, is reincarnated after dying miserably, being laughed at, and then reincarnated into a new world where he’s not the most OP character in the slightest.
This anime loves parodies, making fun out of tropes, pointing fingers at cliches, and turning it all into an art form only Konosuba is good enough to create.
Here’s a list of anime shows like Konosuba worth watching.
1. Didn’t I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?!
Both anime are Isekai with female leads, ridiculousness from those female characters at times, and overall comedy that drives the story forward. Though there are more serious bits here since it’s not a parody like Konosuba.
The main female character wished to be average when reborn but became the average of every strong character in the series if not more. Making her unnecessarily strong.
She finds strong friends along the way but not as strong as she is. The anime plays on the comedy and borrows from anime like
It’s a lot shorter than Konosuba with only 12 episodes.
Bell Cranel is the regular MC who strives to grow stronger, but got to big for his boots almost when his life was almost swiped away from him. A female swordswoman called Ais Wallenstein, the “sword princess” saved his life.
He uses her as a measuring stick for personal development which helps him later down the line on his journey.
His everyday partner is Goddess Hestia, a busty goddess who’s ranked “poorly” compared to other Goddesses in the anime who are all ranked differently by status, prestige, money, and even power.
Despite being a more serious anime than Konosuba as a general rule, Danmachi is known for its comedy where it counts. And its large amount of female characters who happen to be friends with the MC Bell.
3. The Eminence In Shadow
This is the latest Isekai anime to hit the scene with tons of humour, some elements of parody, and clever writing that will either make you cringe, or stick around like a magnet to see what silly shit happens next.
Cid Kagenou, the MC, always went overboard for attention and to play a role. After saving a woman’s life supposedly after a dramatic entrance, he’s later killed in traffic.
Being reborn, he now plays two roles: the role of an anti hero type of character who targets corruption, and one who’s a background character when not wearing his “shadow” uniform to disguise his identity.
Konosuba has similarities here, and fans of either should enjoy whichever you transition to.
4. Good Luck Girl
Ichiko Sakura is the bossy, b*tchy, arrogant and self-important female MC who demands and expects things to fall in her lap because of her lavish upbringing.
She has a butler, courtesy of her family’s wealth after death, who drives himself to the bone to please Ichiko. There is some character development here, surprisingly, making this parody, unlike many others.
Similar to many parodies shows it borrows from other anime and their tropes/cliches to make a point and to entertain.
Good Luck Girl could benefit from a new season.
5. In Another World With My Smartphone
Mochizuki Touya is the male MC with the “Kirito face” that many
He wears a pimp coat, knows how to dress, is given God’s phone number after reincarnation, and has tons of power all from a special smartphone.
Season 1 is more about his harem building up, if you’re into that, with a 2nd season airing now continuing from there.
Not the funniest anime at all, but similar to Konosuba regardless.
6. I’ve Been Killing Slimes For 300+ Years
Asuza is the main character of the show, a blonde witch who decides to take it easy in her new life after reincarnation. She’s used to working herself to death and so has a new philosophy in life.
Being so powerful after defeating an endless number of slimes, people try to challenge her, which is irritating considering she’s an introvert who wants to be left in peace.
This ends up making her house more full of people (some who challenged her), and they all become a happy family somewhat.
You get your comedy, daft episodes and moments, silly characters, and even battles just like Kono Subarashii.
Gintama is a go-to anime for Konosuba fans. You could say it inspired Konosuba but not in obvious ways since the two anime are different.
Starting back in the early 2000s and becoming an OG in anime comedy and parody, this anime will walk you through everything from battles, action, emotional moments of sorts, comedy, good writing, and more.
It’s like the
Subaru Natsuki is another character who wears tracksuits just like Kazuma from Konosuba. The two characters are compared a lot.
In this case, Subaru is reincarnated into a harsh, violent, savage world he doesn’t understand full of elves, mages, swordsman, demons, and much more.
He mysteriously develops the ability to “return by death”, and dies and comes back to life at a certain checkpoint so many times his mental health starts to tumble.
This anime may be too realistic for some since Subaaru is a realistic character. And surprisingly, it even has good comedy where it counts.
This is the
Natsu Dragneel is a human fire dragon in every sense of the word. He’s also easygoing and childish.
Gray Fullbuster, the guy who likes taking his top off (backstory for that) is laid back, cool, chilled, and morally sound.
Lucy Heartfilia, the blonde girl and one of the main characters at the center is a mage with special gate keys to summon spirits. Confident, sensible, and compassionate to a fault.
The other characters like Erza (a major character) play an important role in not just the stories, the plot, the fights and the entertainment value, but in the laughs and the comedy as well.
Akashic Records Of Bastard Magic instructor. Not the first anime you’d use to compare to Konosuba, but they have crossovers in a lot of ways.
Rokudenashi is a series with magic, fantasy, loose school elements, and some of the best comedy from its sarcastic MC called Glenn Radars.
The number of main characters is almost the same as Konosuba as well. The comedy is golden.
The only thing holding this anime back (apart from a cliche or two) is the lack of a 2nd season, despite having plenty of
