Recently I have entered on a marathon of watching several Isekai animes, the premise is someone or somegroup are transported to a different world (usually rebirth or magically summoned) most of them in fantastic medieval setting.
I had watched some of these along my lifetime but didn't know they had a specific name for a subgenre.
When I got that information I gone to Crunchyroll filter and found several that seemed interesting and added the ones I haven't watched.
For the recent ones I watched I'm divided between Rise of the Shield Hero and That time I reincarnated as a slime.
I'll list the ones I liked so far and am curious to see yours favorites. Vote on the Pool as well.
My Rank based on what is available on crunchyroll right now for me.
1) That time i got reincarnated as a slime - The absurdity and overpower of the protagonist make for a very fun story
2) The rising of the shield hero - It have a serious tone and grounded, showing a lot of politics and deception, great story overall. Also one of the few cases that protagonist seem to have a hard time and need to work to solve his problems.
3) Konosuba - The dumbness of the god and how much of a burden the crew is to the protagonist balancing his powers and putting him always in a bad situation make for a great comedy.
4) In another world with my smartphone - This is great just for the excessive overpower of protagonist and how he breaks the world.
5) Saga of Tanya the evil - God being the entity who tries his best to fuck protagonist while the resilience of the second and his wits keeps he moving on have you really cheering for him and fake Germany.
6) Issekai Cheat Magician - Funny for the clear self-conscience of protagonist knowing he is just cheating all the way to easy win while also trying to balance the burden of it and the schemes of the overruling entities.
7) Knight's & Magic - I'm not that much into mechas, but this made the subject interesting by how the ambition of protagonist make the world turn around and set changes on going.
8) Ascendance of a Bookworm - It is really slow paced and the protagonist with low ambitions but always having someone frustrate her plans, it is really grounded and makes for a nice parallel world where some genius is really springing the society ahead.
9) High School Prodigies have it easy even in another world - Emerging of a new nation and genius fucking the logic of a medieval world while fighting against tyrant and putting science and modern world versus magic.
