50. Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest 

The very first entry to the list is none other than an anime from the much-beloved fantasy isekai genre. However, the isekai genre is being over-exploited in the anime world right now, with every season having at least two or more releases of isekai anime.

Arifureta is one of the isekai animes that does its job correctly, and it follows the story of a boy named Hajime Nagumo who is transported to another world with the entire class at his school. He is the weakest link among them, as the abilities granted to him are presumed to be far inferior when compared to his other classmates. But it only takes a tragic turn of events and a few life-and-death situations for Hajime to realize that his ability has the power to make him the world’s strongest.

The anime is more of a comfort anime where the protagonist becomes overpowered after a tragic event and continues his journey. Harem anime elements can also be seen in the anime, with multiple female characters developing feelings for the protagonist after his glow-up.

49. How to not Summon a Demon Lord 

At number forty-nine, another isekai anime enters the list. How to not summon a demon lord can be seen as a much simpler Arifureta with less story depth and more comedic and ecchi elements involved in the plot. The plain story and fanservice in the anime are the factors that have kept the viewers attached to the show.

The story follows Takuma Sakamoto, who was an MMORPG gamer in his previous life and is known by the other players of the game as the “Demon Lord.” He is summoned to another world one day and, on arriving there, finds himself in the avatar of the game he used to play. He then lives his life as a demon lord in the new world with two female characters by his side claiming to be his summoner.

48. High School DxD

High School DxD is an anime that is one of its kind. It is not an isekai but has concepts that can be found in isekai anime very easily. This anime also is a typical ecchi/harem fantasy anime, but the differentiating factor that sets it apart from other similar anime is that the story of High School DxD is good. It can be said to have an above-average story where is show is successful in building suspense and curiosity among the viewers and ending the seasons on cliffhangers.

He is unknowingly drawn into the fight between devils and angels and hopes to fulfill his dream of having a harem one day.

47. Cautious Hero: The Hero Is Overpowered but Overly Cautious

Another isekai anime enters the list at number forty-seven. This anime is also an isekai where the protagonist is summoned by another character into their world. This anime has less fanservice when compared to the other two isekai anime mentioned before. This anime is more comedic and will give you a few laughs for sure.

The story revolves around an overpowered hero who is summoned by the goddess Rista to aid her in her super-hard video game-like world. The hero Seiya is very powerful and can defeat anyone, but she has only one major flaw in him. He is overcautious to the point where it seems dumb.

The over-cautious nature of the overpowered hero that seems stupid in the anime is the main attraction of the show.

Most of the fans of the Naruto franchise think of Boruto as a sequel to Naruto Shippuden that was produced in the hopes of keeping the franchise alive.

He then informs the players that if they lose in the game, that means if they die, they will lose their life in real life, too, as the VR headset would fry their brains using electromagnetic waves. The only way to get yourself out of this messy situation was to clear the game, and this started the journey of Kirito trying to clear the game.
