The Isekai (異世界) genre is defined as: a subgenre of Japanese fantasy light novels, manga, anime, and video games revolving around a normal person being transported to or trapped in a parallel universe.
They’ve become majorly popular in the last few years with popular anime series like Re:Zero – Starting Life in Another World, Overlord, Log Horizon, and The Devil is a Part-timer!
In anime, it’s easy to list the top hits but manga has so many more stories and titles to choose from. I’m compiling recommendations so drop yours below! I’ll put all the most loved ones in a mega list with some hidden gems.
