I have watched and read a plethora of anime, movies, manga, light novels, and web novels over the past couple of weeks. All to form this list. A list that consist of 100 isekai series to enjoy if you are looking for one. I have divided them into sections so you can find the series perfect for you. Also I have 17 anime that I personally would highly recommend on this list in bold and italics. So look out for those. With all of that out of the way, here are 100 anime to Enjoy.
Alright I am gonna get the movies out of the way. With one of if not the best anime movie ever in Spirited Away. If you somehow have not watched it go an watch it and if you have go and watch it again.
1) Spirited Away
2) The Boy and the Beast
Classics 90s and Early 2000s
If you are looking for some old school anime that are also isekai. Then these are the series for you. I also want to thank Yomu for recommending 6&7 to me.
4) Digimon: Digital Monsters
5) The Twelve Kingdoms
6) The Vision of Escaflowne
7) Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar
8) Monster Rancher
Trapped In A MMORPG
This is a genre that I love. For the good, the bad, and the Kirito. Being trapped in a MMORPG is something that I kinda feel is never done anymore. As most isekai make their fantasy world a world that just has video game mechanics and not actually being trapped in a video game like Log Horizon and others.
9) Sword Art Online
10) Log Horizon
12) How to Not Summon A Demon Lord
13) Isekai Apocalypse Mynoghra
Reverse Isekai is a genre that is debatable if it even is isekai sometimes. But, it is an isekai in this list for sure. Also one of the more shocking things in my research is that Sonic X is a reverse isekai if you really think about it.
14) The Devil is a Part-Timer!
15) Sonic X
17) Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid
19) Helpful Fox Senko-San
Modern Technology Isekai
Subarashii (Saga of Tanya the Evil)
This is a genre that I want more of in the future of isekai. Enough of this medieval and more modern technology advance worlds like Tanya The Evil or a parallel world like Tenkuu Shenpai.
20) Saga of Tanya the Evil
21) Tenkuu Shinpan (High-rise Invasion)
A Bridge Between Worlds
The ability to go between two worlds is a concept that I love. And when I started Gate for the first time. It was one of the most interesting genres that I would love to see more of in series. Then there is isekai #23 has a person travel back and forth between the worlds to advance the medieval world.
22) Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri
23) I won 4 billion in a lottery but i went to another world
24) 4.5 Tatami Mat Alternate World Cultural Exchange Chronicles
Food In Another World
If you miss Food Wars like me and want an anime that has almost nothing to do with isekai and a lot to do with food. Then these three are for you.
25) Isekai Ryouridou
26) Restaurant to Another World
27) Isekai Izakaya: Japanese Food From Another World
Parody & Comedy
If you want memes, parody, and a good laugh then these series are for you.
29) Cautious Hero: The Hero Is Overpowered but Overly Cautious
30) Isekai Quartet
31) I’ve Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level
32) Princess Connect! Re:Dive
33) I Became the Mother of the Strongest Demon Lord’s 10 Children in Another World.
34) The Demon King’s Daughter Is Way Too Easy
35) The Killer of the Reincarnated: Cheat Slayer
Why Were You Created
There are these interesting series that I constantly wonder why they were created. So if you want series that you are just interest in the concepts you never heard up then these are for you.
36) I was Reincarnated as a Hot Spring in an Alternate World, and I’m Way too Effective
37) In Another World With My Smartphone
38) Reincarnated as a Sword
39) Do You Love Your Mom and Her Two-Hit Multi-Target Attacks?
40) Reborn as a Vending Machine, Now I Wander the Dungeon
41) Dragon Ball: That Time I Got Reincarnated as Yamcha
Strong Female Leads
Now the isekai general is filled with the 20-30 year old otaku or businessman archetype. So when we get a female lead. To me it is a breath of fresh air. Along with all of these series here that are underrated.
42) The Most Heretical Last Boss Queen Who Will Become the Source of Tragedy Will Devote Herself for the Sake of the People
43) Ascendance of a Bookworm
44) So I’m a Spider, So What?
45) JK Haru is a Sex Worker in Another World
46) I Tamed a Tyrant and Ran Away
Reincarnated Into Royalty
Now this is something that I am seeing more and more in isekai. As protagonists are being born into royalty with a high ranking. Then with their rank they try to rise in power or lead a leisure life in their royal stature. If that is your forte these series are for you.
47) Who Made Me a Princess
48) Little Tyrant Doesn’t Want to Meet A Bad End
49) Reincarnated Aristocrat with an Appraisal Skill
50) Didn’t I Tell You to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life
51) My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!
52) Heroic Chronicles of the Three Continents
53) Knights & Magic
People That Make Themselves Rulers
Now it is one thing to be born into royalty. But, to make yourself not just royalty but a ruler with your ability alone. That is a level all on its own. Out of all the categories on this list. This one has nothing but top tier series.
54) No Game No Life
55) That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime
57) The Death Mage Who Doesn’t Want a Fourth Time
Now what these series focus on is politics and war. Along with a topic that I love in Kingdom building.
58) How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom
59) Release That Witch
60) Farming Life in Another World
61) An Ideal Lazy Life
Edge & Revenge
If you want revenge stories and pure edge lord protagonists. Then these are the series for you. Also most of these series deal with very dark topics so NSFW warning for some.
62) The Rising of the Shield Hero
63) Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest
64) Redo of Healer
65) Kuro no Maou
66) The strongest brave who craves for revenge
67) Nidome No Yuusha
Not As Dark But Dark And Enjoyable
These are good stories all in their own right. Not as dark as the previous collection. But, they are all enjoyable stories that deal with a lot of gore and dark topics.
68) Torture Princess: Fremd Torturchen
69) Did You Think You Could Run After Reincarnating Nii-san
70) The Dungeon Master
71) The Second Coming Of Gluttony
72) I’m Standing on a Million Lives
These two are here for being series that are the definition of adventure. As they have such expansive worlds, cultures, and races. That both of these series are amazing in my opinion. Especially Grimgar as it is a criminally underrated isekai that needs a Grimgar remastered anime.
73) Grimgar: Ashes and Illusions
74) Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation
It is one thing to get reincarnated. But, it is another thing getting reincarnated with your class, your friends, a group of randoms, or you step-sisters that are not related by blood(isekai #75).
75) Game of Familia: Kazoku Senki
76) Monster no Goshujin-sama
77) Makikomarete Isekai Teni suru Yatsu wa Taitei Cheat
78) Hitoribocchi no Isekai
79) High School Prodigies Have It Easy Even In Another World
80) Tsuyokute New Saga
Harem Trash That I Read/Watch For Plot
These series are read for plot and plot alone. Next,
81) Tales of Wedding Rings
82) Isekai Meikyuu de Harem wo
83) The Cursed Sword Master Harem Life
84) Shijou Saikyou Orc-san no Tanoshii
If you want isekai series that are not bad. But, not great and you just need a fix. You can watch or read these if nothing is left.
86) The 8th son? Are you kidding me?
87) Record Of Kurono War
88) Hiraheishi wa Kako o Yumemiru
Isekai That I Couldn’t Categorized
I was trying hard to find a location for these 5. But, I couldn’t. I can say thought that all of these series are very unique on their own.
89) Familiar Of Zero
90) The Saint’s Magic Power is Omnipotent
91) Rosario to Vampire
92) Dungeon Kurashi no Moto Yuusha
93) My House is a Magic Power Spot
The Worst Isekai
Now if you want to see just bad isekai. Because you enjoy torturing your eyes. Then I have three great series for you.
94) Isekai Cheat Magician
95) The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar
Underrated Isekai (Highly Recommend)
Switching gears if you want some series that are very underrated in my opinion. These three are for you. As I will always push TBATE as it has ridiculous potential. Along with I Was Caught up In a Hero Summoning But, the world is at Peace that is a very well written story. Finally I will say that Mairimashita! Iruma-kun is an isekai and you can fight me in the comments on if it isn’t.
97) I Was Caught up In a Hero Summoning But, the world is at Peace
98) The Beginning After The End
99) Mairimashita! Iruma-kun
The Best Isekai
Now I was debating in this list what is the best isekai series out there. It was between two to me, those being The Beginning After The End and Re: Zero. After rewatching and reading the web novel of Re:Zero for two days. It is the best isekai and it is not close. The depth of the world, the amazing characters, and just the story of this series is bar none and it is a isekai story that you should enjoy.
100) Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-
I hope that you found at least one new isekai series to watch or read. As this list was long, tedious, and a fun two weeks. Thanks to everyone that took the time out of your day to read this. If you want more and shorter post than this. Then follow or subscribe to this blog. Until next time, be great people.
