Is your dream to be transported to another world filled with magic and adventure? That’s probably not going to happen, but you can watch Isekai anime instead!
For those not familiar with the Isekai anime genre, simply put, their storylines revolve around the main character being transported from earth to a different dimension or a fantasy world, to name a few. Whether being teleported to another world by reincarnation or by accidentally finding a magic portal, Isekai animes are definitely interesting to watch.
Here are some of the best Isekai anime any anime lover should check out!
An online game called Yggdrasil is about to shut down, and Momonga is still logged in for the game’s final moments. Together with four other members of his guild, Momonga waits and watches the clock count down to zero as the game’s servers are about to go offline.
However, when the timer reaches zero, the clock starts counting up, and Momonga is strangely still logged in. The game’s developers can no longer be contacted, and the logout button is no longer present. The game’s NPC’s start coming to life, and Momonga later discovers that he and his guild’s castle are transported to a different world.
Even if you’re not a fan of the Isekai genre, Overlord is definitely a great anime to watch. It’s also available to watch on Netflix.
2. The Rising of the Shield Hero
This anime starts out as a typical Isekai anime, as Naofumi Iwatami is suddenly summoned to another world along with three other people his age. Their mission: save this strange world they’re transported to.
Although Naofumi is considered as one of the four heroes who’s going to save this kingdom, he discovers the powers he gains as a hero is the weakest of the four.
The Rising of the Shield Hero doesn’t have an overpowered main character such as other animes, but this anime will surely have you at the edge of your seat.

3. Sword Art Online
Arguably one of the most popular Isekai anime of the decade, Sword Art Online is certainly a must see for anyone who hasn’t seen it. It doesn’t feature cyborgs like Ghost in the Shell, but it is as action packed.
Kazuto Kirigaya, better known as his screen name Kirito, is one of the lucky gamers who got his hands on one of the most awaited VRMMORPG’s, Sword Art Online. The game is played with a type of VR gear called the NerveGear, which sends signals to the brain and stimulates the five senses. Instead of playing the game with a traditional VR headset, keyboard, and mouse, the game is played with the players’ minds.
With 9,999 other players logged in the game on the day of the release, Kirito finds himself trapped inside Sword Art Online as the game’s developer is refusing anyone to log out. The only way out is to win, and there are 100 levels in total to beat. Oh, and there’s a catch: if you die inside the game, you die for real.
This anime is full of awesome sound effects and tracks, which is surely better appreciated with the Sony WHXB900N Noise Cancelling Headphones.
