Isekai is a genre of fantasy anime where a character is transported from their original world into an unfamiliar one. Typically, Isekai series will place a person in a magical realm of fantasy and/or terror, though occasionally it happens in reverse. The genre has continued to grow in popularity over the past few years and it isn’t uncommon for us to get over a dozen Isekai series in any given year. There’s something about seeing an ordinary individual trapped in a different yet spectacular world that remains thrilling no matter how many times we see it. Getting the opportunity to explore this new world through the eyes of the Isekai protagonist usually makes us feels like we’re the ones exploring that whole new world.
