Isekai Quartet is one of the most exciting anime of the Spring 2019 anime season - that's because it's a crossover between four beloved isekai anime, Re:ZERO, KonoSuba, Saga of Tanya the Evil and Overlord. By pressing a button, characters from each series are transported to a mysterious new world that starts off in a school - and they're all in chibi form! 

All super fans of the series should be watching the four shows that come together. This will dramatically improve your experience of the crossover because you'll get all the references. But there are other anime like Isekai Quartet that aren't included in the series proper. You might be looking for another anime that depicts popular characters in chibi form. If so, you should watch Rock Lee & His Ninja Pals, a spin-off of the wildly popular shonen series, Naruto. You might want another equally compelling crossover anime. To satisfy that desire, there's Carnival Phantasm, an anime that brings characters from the Fate series together for low-key comedy fun. Just want another great isekai? Try That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, an anime with a title that says it all. 

No matter what you're looking for, there's an anime similar to Isekai Quartet that's perfect for you. Vote up the best ones to help guide your fellow fans.

Saga of Tanya the Evil, also known as Youjo Senki, is one of the four shows that make an appearance in Isekai Quartet. A cynical middle-aged man is challenged by Being X, this universe's depiction of God, for his unwillingness to believe in a higher power. Being X decides to reincarnate this man as a little girl in a dangerous magical world, hoping that he will be so desperate for help that he will cry out for God's mercy. But Tanya Degurechaff, the man who is now a young girl, shrewdly makes her way in her new world, becoming a high ranking military leader in no time. While Isekai Quartet gives viewers a taste of Tanya's story, the whole thing can only be experienced through watching Saga of Tanya the Evil.

The Fate universe is one of the most brutally violent worlds in anime history. Each series focuses on one of the Holy Grail Wars, a fight for ownership over a powerful wish-granting device. Fans of the series can expect to see their favorite characters get slaughtered Game of Thrones style. Carnival Phantasm offers a light-hearted alternative to all the pain. Characters from every Fate series gather together to play games and go on adventures that parody the series they came from. This is essentially the premise of Isekai Quartet, but with Fate characters instead of the casts of different isekai.

One of the things that makes Isekai Quartet so much fun is the fact that the characters appear in chibi form. This is not only cute, but it also gives the viewer an opportunity to see the characters they love in a less serious light. There are several anime spin-offs that feature chibi character designs, but we'll zero in on Rock Lee & His Ninja Pals, a spin-off focusing on one of Naruto's most beloved side characters, Rock Lee. The anime featured in Isekai Quartet vary in tone - KonoSuba is a comedy while Saga of Tanya the Evil gets pretty dark - but all of them make an appearance in this light-hearted show. Meanwhile, Naruto contains the full spectrum of drama and comedy, which makes it's chibi version a great choice if you're loving Isekai Quartet.
