What is isekai anime?
If you’re unfamiliar with the term isekai, do not feel discouraged, as it can be an unfamiliar term to plenty of anime fans.
The word isekai refers to a specific subgenre found in anime and manga. Although not exclusive to fantasy, it is often a subgenre of a fantasy-based series.
Isekai generally involves a character, or multiple characters, being transported to another world. The means of transportation can be different. Common ways characters end up in other worlds involve reincarnation, transportation via some sort of portal or other mechanisms, or even being summoned through magic.
Isekai anime often include similar tropes like worlds with rules similar to popular video games. Still, many series put their own unique twists on the familiar stories.
If you’re looking to try out a new anime, popular isekai titles include shows like Re:Zero and The Rising of the Shield Hero. The Summer 2022 anime season alone contains more than a few isekai series to choose from as well. With so many options, something is bound to catch your attention!
