It’s either you love it or hate it when it comes to Death March kara Hajimaru Isekai Kyousoukyoku (translating as Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody). As for my own sentiment, I find this anime weirdly fascinating. That being said, I proudly exclaim: “I love it!” While it is very far from being perfect, I do think it is boundlessly amusing. Although it is not new and phenomenal, its premise sure is interesting (at least for me). The story leads to nothing of great remark. But when it comes to world-building and actualization of minute game mechanics, this anime sincerely follows through and never disappoints.

Since you are here, I will take the chance to share with you some titles that are quite similar to Death March kara Hajimaru Isekai Kyousoukyoku. If you enjoyed the anime in question to a fault just like me, then the titles listed here will definitely suit you well!

Anime Similar to Death March kara Hajimaru Isekai Kyousoukyoku

1. Overlord

2. Isekai wa Smartphone to Tomo ni (In Another World With My Smartphone)

3. KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on this Wonderful World!

4. Sword Art Online

5. Log Horizon

Overlord

Overlord

1. Overlord

Quite homologous to Death March kara Hajimaru Isekai Kyousoukyoku, Overlord exhibits a game-like fantasy world where the main character is an ordinary being from the real world who suddenly gains access to omnipotent power. Everything is business as usual for the denizens of the alternate world, but for the transferee from the real world—everything plays out like a role-playing video game!

Overlord leans on the darker side of the isekai genre in anime, albeit not as bleak as you think. It has its comical moments, but I would consider it more as a dark comedy overall. Its fantasy elements, as well as its game-like elements, are on point! If you think about it closely, this anime is actually very authentic and detailed—down to its minute essence.

In view of its visuals, sounds, plot, characters, execution, and various gripping scenes, Overlord blends everything perfectly to rule its own grim dominion. Do you have what it takes to witness the ascendancy of an almighty overlord?

2. Isekai wa Smartphone to Tomo ni (In Another World With My Smartphone)

There’s the word “Isekai” in the title! I am one hundred percent sure you already know what this show is all about! Yup, it is yet again “Another World”—the literal translation of “Isekai!”

I’m telling you now, Isekai wa Smartphone to Tomo ni is not, in any way, the best isekai show in the world. As a matter of fact, it is the opposite. It is a bit humorous and entertaining, but it also is very predictable and generic. There’s really nothing special about it, but it does fully exemplifies what an anime of the isekai genre is with all the defining elements slapped together. While it sure is mediocre, mediocrity is perfection for this anime.

Watch Isekai wa Smartphone to Tomo ni and discover for yourself what isekai truly means. Entertainment-wise, this show is pretty decent. Its merit, after all, is that it is one of the kings of genericism of the isekai genre.

KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on this Wonderful World!

3. KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on this Wonderful World!

Whatever you are doing right now, abandon it and hear me out! We have come upon a title like no other. Presenting—KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on this Wonderful World!

Just like Death March kara Hajimaru Isekai Kyousoukyoku, KonoSuba has the same premise. The difference? There’s way less seriousness and logicality in KonoSuba. In fact, it is purely an adventure/comedy gag show!

Personally, I think KonoSuba is one of the funniest anime I have ever watched! It is a joke in itself! It is a funky experience that is well worth every second of the time spent watching it. Actually, I have watched it countless of times already. It’s just so funny and amusing! I dare say: “Watch it this instant!”

Sword Art Online

4. Sword Art Online

For some reason, I believe that anime shows like Death March kara Hajimaru Isekai Kyousoukyoku actually branched out from the most successful game genre trendsetter, Sword Art Online. Now don’t tell me that you’ve never heard of Sword Art Online. The only way that would be possible is if you’ve been living under a rock. After all, this anime literally shook the whole world with hype when it was first released.

Sword Art Online is one of the most eminent pioneers of the game genre in anime. And it’s not just the game genre that it took to the world stage, it also shone some limelight on virtual reality, isekai, and various other dimensional transfer elements. It became successful because it connected itself to a lot of people at very deep level. Physically, mentally, and emotionally—Sword Art Online managed to resonate with all these faculties.

In terms of build and technicality, Sword Art Online possesses a high degree of quality. It is remarkable through-and-through with all its elements, aspects, and themes combined. If till this day you haven’t seen it, then I assure you that you are missing out on a lot!

Log Horizon

5. Log Horizon

If you liked the world-building elements, as well as the close focus on game mechanics, of Death March kara Hajimaru Isekai Kyousoukyoku, then you’ll definitely bathe in delight watching Log Horizon!

As you see, Log Horizon is a clever anime show that gradually builds on its impactful premise each episode that passes through. It’s not just about being trapped in a game or getting stuck in another world, it explores everything that can be explored. Conflicts, politics, psychology, game mechanics, and every little detail—Log Horizon delves deep into every single thing. And it does so in such a brilliant way!

Log Horizon is set inside a virtual game, but its realism is the real deal. Everything flows naturally within it, albeit too genuine. It makes you feel that you’re inside it, immersing in the experience yourself. Log Horizon may not be as hyped as many others of the same genre, but what it does with great impact is that it delivers a well-staged, well-executed, and well-thought story like no other.

Okay, while these are good mentions, I would also like to add the .hack titles as well, they may be a bit older but still have a very decent story within them, it seems people have forgotten about them all together though.
