Table of Contents
1. Digimon Adventure
Digimon Adventure is the best Isekai Anime, according to my opinion. In this series, seven children are transported into the Digital World by Digivices that appeared before them at summer camp, where they befriend several Digimon. The kids’ Digivices allow their partner Digimon to Digivolve into stronger forms and combat enemies.
After each child has received their particular object, they are unexpectedly drawn into a dimensional portal and land in the “digital world,” which exists side by side with the “actual world” and is made completely of digital data.
As soon as they touch down, the kids learn that each of their Digimon is committed to keeping them safe and to battling many formidable foes endangering the Digital World.
2. Re:Zero (Starting life in another world)
Re:Zero, one of the best Isekai Anime. The story is about NEET Subaru Natsuki’s life that is turned upside down when he is summoned to a fantasy world. Subaru cannot relax for long, as he is killed while defending Emilia, a half-elf he befriends.
Subaru is a high school student, one day he was attacked somepersons. Satela, one of the characters from the series saved him. He decided to help Satela after that in her every step of life.
3. Digimon Tamers
Digimon Tamers, one of the best Isekai anime. In series, as wild Digimon began roaming Shinjuku, the Tamers defeat them and defend the city. Using their D-Powers, the Tamers can Digi-modify through scanning cards or help them Digivolve.After each Digimon is defeated, their Digimon obtains their data.
After resolving conflicts with the Digimon Sovereigns, the Tamers learn that the Digimon are protecting themselves from humans and the Real World after the Digital World is invaded by the D-Reaper, a rogue clean-up program.
When the D-Reaper begins to materialize in the Real World, the Tamers defeat it, using the program and saving Jeri. With both worlds restored, the children are forced to say goodbye to their Digimon partners, when they end up returning to the Digital World by the effects of the program.
4. Now and Then, Here and There
Now and Then, Here and There is one of the best Isekai anime. We summarize this series as While walking home from school, “Shu”, the main protagonist and a boy who loves kendo, intercedes to protect a girl, Lala-Ru, who is attacked by abductors piloting dragon-like mechas and is accidentally transported to the attackers` world as a result—a wasteland devoid of water and dominated by a red giant star.
Sara`s reason for her capture was being mistaken for Lala-Ru by Hamdo`s minions. Sara is forced into the quarters of exceptional soldiers to be impregnated and is traumatized by her repeated rape. Must watch this, hopefully you will loved it.
Inu Yasha is one of the best Isekai anime. The series is all about adventure, romance and fantasy.
The Shikon Jewel was burned along with Kikyo`s body to cast it out of this world entirely, in order to keep it safe from the hands of those who would use its power for evil.
Kagome comes across a sleeping boy pinned by a sacred arrow to a tree, learning he is Inuyasha, a half-human, half-demon (yōkai) whom Kikyo pinned to the tree as her final act when he attempted to steal the jewel.
Kagome then gets attacked by a centipede demon and desperately frees Inuyasha to kill the centipede demon, but when he turns on her and tries to steal the jewel again, he is subdued with a magical beaded necklace to keep him in line with Kagome saying “sit” or “sit boy”, which causes him to violently fall to the ground.
