TOP 10 ISEKAI Anime of 2021

We had a lot of Isekai anime in 2021 (as always), however, most of this year’s Isekais are very good and some of them are considered the best shows of the entire year! so in this post, I am gonna share with you my personal top 10 Isekai anime of 2021, this will include sequels for continuing series and brand new series, so here we go!

10. So I’m a Spider, So What?

  • Episodes: 24
  • Studio: Millepensee

Unlike the other high school students who got reincarnated with some renowned backgrounds, the protagonist of the story was reborn as a spider

The plot of this anime is very complex and thrilling at the same time, you need to focus attentively every time the screen switches to another event because of the tricky timelines game that this show and this may confuse you!

the anime adaptation on the other hand was catastrophic! and it gets worst with every episode, and to be honest, things were not looking good from the moment the studio behind it was revealed! it was is the same that did Berserk 2016,

This was a big waste for this fantastic and great story that has the potential to be one of the best Isekais of all the time!

9. How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom

  • Episodes: 12
  • Studio: J.C.Staff

The feeling of loneliness that Kazuya was going through came to end after he got summoned to another world to be the “Hero”

But unlike your ordinary Isekai Main Characters who use their crazy superpowers and physical abilities to stop the demon king, Kazuya is willing to put some unique yet “Realistic” solutions for his problems

If you are tired of the duplicated concepts of Isekai shows, this anime has a totally different take but you need to know that it’s full of political topics and dialogues so if that doesn’t bother you, go and give it a try

8. Paladin of the End

Note that a second season was announced for this anime just after the first season concluded

7. My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! X

  • Episodes: 12
  • Studio: SLIVER LINK

After a first season full of comedy and emotions, Hamefura came back this year to give us more joy!

Although I still prefer the previous season, I really liked this one as well! some major development and unexpected things happened and a lot of new casts was introduced as well

It was a fun time with this anime that made us remember that we don’t need crazy supernatural creatures and rediculous battles to have fun while watching an Isekai

Waiting eagerly for the upcoming movie announced just after episode 12 and I hope that it will be a sequel for the second season!

6. The Dungeon of Black Company

  • Episodes: 12
  • Studio: SILVER LINK.

just after acheiving his ultimate goal of not having to work for the rest of his life, Kinji Ninomiya found himself transported to another world as a simple worker at an exploitative company that just care about growing their finance

However, Kinji is not going to give up! he is willing to do everything it takes to get back to his life and enjoy the life that he always dreamed of

this is not just a great Isekai anime that has a unique concepte and some really lovable characters, espicially Rimu, but it’s also one of the best comedy shows of 2021

5. The World’s Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in Another World as an Aristocrat

  • Episodes: 12
  • Studio: SILVER LINK., Studio Palette

After being betrayed and killed by the organization that he always worked for and always being loyal to, the world’s greatest assassin got a chance to start a new life once again after being chosen by the goddess to be reincarnated in a fantasy world of magic and swords

His will be born as a son for a Noble family that secretly works as assassins for the royal family and mission is to kill the hero in order to save the world,

This time he is going to learn from his mistake in his previous life and see things from a different perspective, take advantage of his great experience as an assassin, and make sure to not fall into the same hole twice

4. Tsukimichi -Moonlit Fantasy-

  • Episodes: 12
  • Studio: C2C

Makoto Misumi, the main character of this anime was obliged to be sent to another world because of a pact between his family and a certain goddess

But because of the way Makoto was treated, he ended up carrying a great hatred in his heart towards the goddess

Makoto started his journey in this fantasy world where he met a lot of different creatures and was accompanied by some powerful allies and a lot of adventures are waiting for him

This anime was really entertaining, it gathered a mixture of everything, comedy, epic and hype moments, dark moments, or even emotional moments

If this show gets more seasons, I can see it becoming one of the greatest Isekai in the future because it’s clear that it has a great potential

3. Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation

  • Episodes: 24 ( two parts )
  • Studio: Bind

After a first part that aired in winter 2021 and made this anime one of the most popular ones out there because of the controversy around it and because of the great quality of both the story and the visuals exposed in this part, Mushoku Tensei came back 6 months later to assure that it will make a name for itself

And it actually did it, whether they liked it or not, both sides, the haters as well as the fans contributed to the success of this show and made it as popular as it is!

And to be fair, regardless of some controversial elements, this anime was amazing! and I can understand why a lot of people consider it as anime of the year in 2021

but personally, there are two other Isekais that I enjoyed more and I think they were even better than Mushoku Tensei

2. That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2

  • Episodes: 24 ( two parts )
  • Studio: 8bit

This second season of Tensura was really a rollercoaster of emotions, it completely changed my perspective towards this show and made me realize how much I was sleeping on this masterpiece

The first part was a mixture of pain and feeling of revenge, it introduced some dark elements that I didn’t see coming at all in this anime! and to give you an overview of my previous perspective towards Tensura, just imagine if Shirogane from Kaguya sam love is was dies in the anime for example, wouldn’t that be a huge twist of events? that’s exactly how I felt!

The second part brought us the satisfaction and the redemption that we were looking for in part 1, and they did it in the best way possible!

The characters that appeared and participated in this part were very interesting and made the plot more interesting and exciting.

Never thought that I will be asking for the 3rd season of this show before this season aired, but at least we got a movie announced

1. Re:Zero 2nd Season

  • Episodes: 12 ( part 2 of season 2 )
  • Studio: White Fox

Right now I consider this anime to be the greatest Isekai anime of all time! and can you even blame me?

This season 2 of Re zero made fall in love even more with the series, the character development of both Subaru and Emilia was out of this world and made like these two way more than I already did

I really enjoyed every single episode of this season, literaly, there is no episode where I felt like its was an alright episode, they were all amazing and extremely enjoyable!

So I don’t know about you but, Re zero is definitively the greatest Isekai anime we got in 2021 in my opinion
