Like pro-wrestling? How about Isekai anime? How about both? Hataage! Kemono Michi brings these elements together and gives us a heavy dose of comedy in between! With such a pleasant mix, we’re shown something, not unlike the stuff we’ve already seen, yet it is completely different. That being said; however, there are similar shows and we’re about to give you six favorites – 6 anime like Hataage! Kemono Michi coming up! 

Similar Anime to Hataage! Kemono Michi (Kemono Michi: Rise Up)

1.Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! (KonoSuba: God's Blessing on This Wonderful World!)

  • Episodes: 10
  • Aired: January 2016 – March 2016

After dying a pathetic death on his way back from buying a game, high school student and social recluse Satou Kazuma finds himself in Purgatory, sitting before the beautiful goddess, Aqua. She gives him two options: move on to heaven as one normally would, or get a second chance at life in a fantasy world. Realizing that he has the chance to live the life he’d lived in all his favorite games, Kazuma chooses the latter option. Tasked with defeating the evil Demon King in this world, he is given the choice to choose any item to help him in the quest and he chooses the goddess Aqua herself! However, he soon realizes just how useless the obnoxious goddess is and to make things even worse, living in this fantasy world is different from how it would be in the games. Kazuma must work to earn a living just like everyone else, living the fantasy version of the kind of life common to the world he left behind!

Finding himself summoned to a new world, Kazuma is instantly ready to get into the thick of things; however, it isn’t as he expected. Unlike Kazuma; however, Animal Mask’s transition into life in another world isn’t as smooth, but it’s just as funny, with commentary about his outfit following him everywhere he goes! The biggest similarity between the two is the fact that they’re both Isekai, but also comedies that don’t take themselves too seriously.

2.Tsuujou Kougeki ga Zentai Kougeki de Ni-kai Kougeki no Okaasan wa Suki Desu ka? (Do You Love Your Mom and Her Two-Hit Multi-Target Attacks?)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: July 2019 – September 2019

Masato’s life changes forever after he participates in a random survey at school one day. It turns out that the survey was a government scheme and as a result, Masato ends up being transported to the world of a video game. With his mother caught in the same situation, Masato ends up embarking on an adventure in a fantasy world with his mother and they make some friends along the way. 

Okaa-san Online and Kemono Michi are similar in the fact that they are both Isekai titles that bend the known Isekai trope in various ways. Both are comedies that just happen to be in alternate realities, although, Okaa-san Online is in a videogame while Hataage! Kemono Michi happens in another world.

3.Shinchou Yuusha: Kono Yuusha ga Ore Tueee Kuse ni Shinchou Sugiru (Cautious Hero: The Hero Is Overpowered but Overly Cautious)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: October 2019 -Ongoing

Listarte is a goddess set to become the savior of the world known as Gaeabrunde, a world in complete chaos and turmoil. To assist her in her mission, Listarte summons a hero from another world. Enter Ryuuguuin Seiya, a Japanese guy with incredible stats but an equally incredible level of caution. For Seiya, caution is everything – he’d fight a slime monster at full-power just to be on the safe side! Better safe than sorry is something he lives by! 

Hataage! Kemono Michi and Cautious Hero are similar because they have a similar premise – a person is summoned to an alternate world in order to be its hero. The protagonists themselves are completely different but are similar in the sense that they are considered unique or even eccentric or strange in their respective Isekai adventures. Both anime are comedy titles so you can expect some great laughs from a Hataage! Kemono Michi and Cautious Hero.

4.Watashi, Nouryoku wa Heikinchi de tte Itta yo ne! (Didn't I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?!)

  • Episodes: 12 (Ongoing)
  • Aired: October 2019 - Ongoing

Kurihara Misato has been exceptional all her life. As a result, she has lived her life standing out from everybody else and had no friends or the experience of a normal life. After she dies suddenly, she is sent to a divine realm, due for a reincarnation. She is also given one wish – she wishes to be reborn as a normal person with abilities that are average for the world she will be sent to. Misato is reborn as Adele von Ascham, the daughter of a noble. She soon finds out that she possesses incredible magic powers that are way beyond average. Determined to live the average life she has always desired, she enrolls at a hunter school in a faraway kingdom under the alias “Mile”. As much as she tries to live an average life, things happen that continue to show that perhaps Misato was never meant to be just average in any life. 

This show takes the regular Isekai formula and breaks the fourth wall on various occasions, yielding hilarious results! Hataage! Kemono Michi is similar to Heikinchi de tte Itta yo ne when you consider them both as titles in the Isekai-comedy subgenre. They both also play upon having the main character who is exceptional or different in some way, with Misato being ridiculously powerful and Animal Mask’s pro-wrestler aesthetic and overzealous love for animals makes his entire approach something funny and interesting.

5.Hataraku Maou-sama! (The Devil is a Part-Timer!)

  • Episodes: 13
  • Aired: April 2013 – June 2013

The land of Ente Isla falls under attack from the Demon Lord Satan and his armies. His brutal conquest of the continent is foiled by the hero Emilia, who forces him to retreat but the inter-dimensional portal he opens sends Satan and his aide, Alsiel, tumbling down into the streets of modern-day Tokyo. Powerless in this world without magic, Satan attempts to blend in with human society by becoming Maou Sadou and working at the local MgRonald’s fast food restaurant to earn a living. His conquering of Ente Isla takes a backseat to his desire to climb the corporate ladder and eventually become ruler of Earth! Now living a mundane life as a human being (and enjoying it), the vicious Demon Lord learns more about human life. 

Hataraku Maou-sama has great humor set up in the contrast between expectation and reality. Reality in this case being the magic-less era of modern-day Japan and the grind of working at a fast-food restaurant. Hataage! Kemono Michi is quite similar, bringing comedy, an Isekai adventure and a stranger who is exceptionally powerful in their way. The main difference with these shows is that one takes the main character to a fantasy world while the other brings the fantasy to our reality.

6.Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken (That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime)

  • Episodes: 25
  • Aired: October 2018 – March 2019

37-year-old Mikami Satoru’s life ends abruptly and violently when he is killed by a passing robber one day. In a strange turn of events, Satoru finds himself reincarnated in a fantasy world as a slime known as Rimuru Tempest. In this world, Satoru has access to a plethora of strange abilities, abilities that break him away from his old ordinary life and augment his adventures in a whole new world. 

Unlike That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, Hataage! Kemono Michi is an Isekai title that does not have its main character die and reincarnate in another world; rather, it sends them straight to their new world as they are. The similarity between these two shows is the fact both main characters are sent to fantasy worlds that feature creatures of an otherworldly origin.

I’m South African, harbouring an obsession for anything remotely related to Japan, mostly anime, of course. I draw sometimes. Some people call me Naledi, it’s my real name, or something like that. People think I’m stoic because I don’t smile often (I do sometimes). I like languages. Hoshi-kun and Naledi are the same side of the same coin.
