Top Isekai Animes You NEED to watch.

Oh, the beloved Isekai genre. We either love it or hate it. While some Isekai animes steal our hearts, others make us wonder why they were ever created. This list, however, will focus on the Isekai animes you MUST certainly watch. (comment animes that you believe should be in this list)
1 Fushigi Yugi: The Mysterious Play

Fushigi Yugi: The Mysterious Play

An old classic. Young maiden gets teleported into a book. This is quite a dramatic and romantic anime. I also shed a couple of tears while watching this series. 

Overall, one of the great old Isekai anime. Fushigi Yuugi opens the scene on a young girl Miaka, one day she finds herself in a mysterious library and then she's teleported into the book. 

Ps; it lowkey gets a lil fucked up by the end. 

2 Drifters



it is extremely brutal but nevertheless, it delivers.

Diverse warriors from different eras find themselves in a strange world after death. Our main character, a Samurai Shimazu Toyohisa finds himself as one of the members of the greatest warriors. Heading to battle against other amazing warriors. It's basically a Death Game.

3 InuYasha


Who doesn't know about the Iconic 'Inuyasha' series?


4 Overlord


the online role-playing game takes on a reality of its own after its servers permanently shut down.

Momonga commands his loyal servants to help him investigate and take control of this new world

PS ( I haven't had enough time to start watching overlord, I will update this once I watch it)

5 Spirited Away

Spirited Away

Miyazaki movies are always great. and more when there's romance between a dragon and a girl. 

6 That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime

currently one of the main Isekai ruling over the community. 

A must watch, A man finds himself in his last moments after getting stabbed. Once he dies he finds himself in another dimension, only this time he was no longer human, instead, he's now a slime. 

7 No Game No Life

No Game No Life

Loving gaming so much that you get teleported into another dimension where you can play all you want? YES PLEASE.

8 Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-

Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-

Re;Zero has by farrr made a big impact in the isekai community. With it's crazy romance issue and twists.

9 The Rising of the Shield Hero

The Rising of the Shield Hero

OHHH MANNNNNNN, I've delayed it but its here. 

When I watched the rising of the shield hero, I was mad at the way the Mc was being treated. But when the tables finally turnedddddddddd , girllll I was like so hype. 

Karma really do be a bitch.

(S/o to Savav for the recommendation and remainder)

10 Sword Art Online II

Sword Art Online II

SAO 1 is alright, the whole series was great ofc that is until they turned it into a harem.

But SAO is basically about virtual reality. Kirito plays video games on a daily, one day while on virtual reality he finds himself unable to log off the server. Turned out he was now stuck in the game and to make matters worse, if you were to die in the game then that also meant you will die in your own world as well. 

Overall, I think every anime beginner should watch SAO. 

11 Kamigami no Asobi
