    If you like "Your name", you might also like "A silent voice".

    As for anime this 2017, you should try
    Saga of Tanya the Evil
    Boku no Hero Academia
    Attack on Titan Season 2

    Can anyone give me some anime recommendations where the MC is an expert at what he does and the world is in a game or maybe some fantasy themed? Similar shows include SAO, King's Avatar, Log Horizon, Overlord and One Punch Man.

    If you can get past the wuxia-ish elements and the Chinese names, the story is supposedly really good. I couldn't get past the very strong Chinese cultural references so I dropped it. The manga is a lot better, and not done with dolls.

    I just watched No Game No Life: Zero (the movie) and man it is quite tearjerking there. It is just so good, and I love how Madhouse being faithful to original source.



    Also kek.

    Uhm... There is No Game No Life above.

    There is also Mahouka though it is not about fantasy but rather magical sci-fi stuffs.

    On the other hand most shits about OP MCs are mostly wish-fulfillment and not good stuffs.

    So everyone seems to be creaming themselves over Mahoutsukai no Yome this season and… I don't know, not feeling hooked onto it myself.

    It's got some great moments but overall it's really nothing special. And this is coming from someone who's a great fan of classical fairy tales and Harry Potter.

    Looking Inuyashiki, Hiro Shishigami is such a hero while killing the bashing leftist liberal media in Japan <3 ! BANG BANG , DA DA DA DA DA DA DA ! it's like music for my ears, he was an artist but when he started to kill common citizens before and after, it depressed me.

    KEK Gigguk is so mad he didn't get into YouTube Rewind that he made his own Rewind.

    EDIT: And apparently Gigguk's entire comment section got so mad that he didn't include Lost Pause in his Rewind vid that Gigguk ended up writing an entire explanation around it (which the Lost Pause fanboys did not like).

    I love watching animes with OP main character. I hate watching those shounen anime that makes us wait for decades to get stronger and "power of friendship" thing.

    1. Overlord
    2. One Punch Man
    3. Trigun

    Consider:

    Mahouka Koukousei no Rettousei (Irregular at Highschool) - guy is not recognized for his combat skill as actual combat ability and tested magical ability in academic setting are different.
    GATE - this one has OP forces instead of main character being OP, but it gives off a similar feeling
    Mob Psycho 100 - from the same creator as One Punch Man, guy is OP at dealing with youkai-ish things
    Log Horizon - guy is OP, but the show mainly focuses more on PvE content (since it's mainly talking about the game world and develops on the world situation)
    Sword Art Online - Guy is solodude edgelordsupreme specifically created for self-insert illusion of being the fastestest and strongestest.

    Would suggest to the list of anime with already developed (strength-wise) characters for all of those who have not watched them:

    The animated movie "Sword of the stranger",
    series of Demon Eyes Kyo (a.k.a. Samurai Deeper Kyo or Kyou Mibu) and Shura no Toki.
    The all time favorite (for those who somehow missed it) Hellsing and something which I perceive as a re-make from another author - Trinity Blood.

    All of them are not on the levels of overpowering characters on par with One Punch Man or Mob Psycho, but they are not about the road to increase their power as the traditional Shōnen (Naruto/Bleach and the likes).

    There's a new anime about to air called Death March kara Hajimeru... something something, features OP main transported to another world (yes, it's that set up again), perhaps you could watch that one.

    Nothing else in that setting really comes to mind.
