Top 64 Best Isekai Anime Of All Time [2022]

 Kay SebastianKay-Updated May 28, 2022


Isekai Anime

 

Anime has always separated itself from the rest of entertainment mediums. Whether it's their high octane action, character drama, or storylines.

 

The anime industry constantly takes a distinct route. And when it comes to genres offered by the medium, they are more than what meets the eye.

 

Shounen, Shoujo, Seinen, Josei, etc. are some of the genres offered exclusively by anime. And amongst these exclusive genres, you would have most certainly heard of a special one.

 

It's called 'Isekai'. 'Isekai' is a Japanese term that means 'different world' or 'other world'. However, in terms of anime, it is a subgenre of Fantasy.

 

The idea of Isekai is simple. An individual gets transported from a known world to an unknown one.

 

Basically, if you travel from your homeworld to a foreign world, you have been Isekai'd.

 

I can bet that at least 70% of you would have already watched an Isekai.

 

Or maybe you were binging Isekai for the last three months. Whatever the case, your presence on this page assures one thing.

 

It's that you are interested in the Isekai genre and the anime it offers. Thus, to fulfill your interest, I will be giving you the Top 64 Isekai Anime.

 

And I hope that once finished, you all have at least 1 anime added to your watchlist.

 

So without wasting more time, let's start.

 

 

64. The Ambition of Oda Nobuna

This is a unique anime that brings together the unlikely concept of ‘cute girls’ and ‘historical battlefields.’ The Ambition of Ada Nobuna traces the story of a guy named Yoshiharu who is sent back in time.

 

However, upon reaching the past, he realizes the timeline of Japanese history seems to have a few unique differences. One of these differences is that all the warlords happen to be cute girls now!

 

With this information in hand, Yoshiharu uses his knowledge of history (that he developed from a video game), to predict battles along with helping Oda Nobuna, the best girl, in her quest to conquer all of Japan!

MAL Score 7.351
Duration 23 min. per ep.

 

If you’re looking for a different and cute storyline, that’s miles away from your usual fight to survive plotlines, then Restaurant to Another World is a must-watch.

 

The show is simply about running a restaurant! However, there's obviously a little more to the story. The twist lies in its customer base.

 

While on regular workdays, it caters to anyone and everyone, Saturdays are specifically open to the fantasy world. So, don't be shocked if you find a dragon enjoying some good steak and beer!

 

The concept of the show makes it funny and somewhat a must-watch, mostly because of its uncommon and lighthearted concept.

 

 

 

62. Nobunaga Concerto

MAL Score 7.591

The story goes somewhat like this – a guy gets transported to feudal Japan and ends up coming face to face with Nobunaga himself.

 

However, the plot twist lies in the fact that the two looks quite similar to each other, and Nobunaga happen to be tired of the constant pressure he's under.

 

As a solution, the both of them decide to switch places from which point onwards, our protagonist lives Nobunaga’s life and tries to give his all to ensure the country doesn’t go into ruins and survives the terrible ordeal that has befallen it.

 

So then, is it safe to call Nobunaga Concerto the Stan Lee of isekai?

 

 

 

61. Amatsuki

 

Amatsuki

 

As is seen usually in the isekai genre, the protagonist gets transported to a world they truly love and wish to visit.

 

However, with Amatsuki the case happens to be a little different. The protagonist Tokidoki hates knowing about history, tanking in almost every history exam.

 

So, in an effort to improve his grades, he is sent to the museum where there happens to be a simulator that lets him experience and enjoy all that he has learned.

 

But trouble starts when he gets trapped inside and there's a life risk involved. What's worse is – demons are running all around!

 

So, in hopes to save himself, he partners up with a couple of samurai and prays to survive in his quest to learn a little something about history.

 

 

 

60. Re: Creators

 

Re: Creators

 

If you’re someone who loves to live in the idea of bringing ‘art to life’ then Re: Creators will definitely be your cup of tea.

 

In this story, fictional characters come alive in the real world, bringing forth their powers and unique personalities. While initially, it's all about the much-loved good guys, soon there is a top-hat wearing lady who starts offing the characters and that's when our protagonists realize that is important to stop her before it gets a little too late.

 

However, the real realization strikes when they begin to understand that the relationship shared by the author and their creator can be much more complex than initially thought.

 

Unique, fun and sort of topsy-turvy – that's how we'd sum this show, so if you're looking for something similar, give it a go!

An adaptation of a mobile game, Princess Connect! Re: Dive has a very simple yet fun storyline. There's a guy who happens to fall from the sky, right into the fantasy world, and ends up having no memories.

 

He somehow manages to get himself surrounded by girls and all together they form a guild. Two adorable looking female leads somewhat carry the show with their interesting wit and humour.

 

What's best is – each girl has a distinct personality trait that's a complete contrast to the others. So, there's an antisocial cat girl, the talkative one, and a bubbly and fun leader with a black hole for a stomach.

 

If this catches your fancy, we'd suggest giving it a watch for sure!

Kekkai Sensen is a little different in the sense that its story begins 3 years post the opening of a portal that helps connect the human world with that of monsters, aliens, demi-gods – you get the gist, right?

 

We are made witness to a city that has humans and monsters living completely intertwined. The show has some really good aesthetics and let’s be honest, seeing a normal guy busy enjoying a cup of coffee right next to a bug monster, as there’s a super hyped monkey that keeps bouncing in the room – who wouldn’t get sold on that?

 

 

 

57. Now and Then, Here and There

Now and Then, Here and There gives a very 90’s vibe, not just because of how the creators have styled the art, but also because of how the isekai has been handled.

 

It starts rather typically, wherein a boy comes across an interesting girl but the girl gets attacked and in trying to save her, he ends up in a different world.

 

However, instead of getting him to make random discoveries or hunt slime, the show propels him into a world that's stuck in the middle of a serious war.

 

So, with no way out the protagonist will have to make use of all possible survival skills, while also looking for the girl he’s set his heart on.

An anime that is all about a man who decides to stay an atheist even in the face of God.

 

After passing away, he is confronted by a mysterious powerful being whom he refuses to acknowledge. Finding no way out, God ends up reincarnating him in the form of a little girl in a country stuck at war.

 

However, even this doesn't help because Tanya (the little girl) continues to refuse the existence of power and chooses to become a soldier.

 

God unwilling to accept defeat now chooses to throw magic into the equation. Tanya, being true to herself simply ends up using it to murder every person that crosses her path.

 

So, what lies ahead, in this battle between God and an atheist?
