Because of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, you’ll enjoy these other shows as well..
Isekai is undoubtedly the most overcrowded genre of the decade. That’s the genre whose popularity skyrocketed the most during the course of the decade. It’s as if you’ve been transported to another universe in the shape of slime, with one for every variant on the theme.
Because of its excellent quality animation and a self-awareness that many shows like these lack, That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime was a favorite for many anime lovers in 2018. He knows he’s overpowered, and he uses it to his advantage to help those around him. Rimuru is the protagonist of the series. It’s a great show, and the second season is coming in 2020. In the meantime, here’s a list of fifteen anime to watch while you wait.
Drifters barely qualifies as an isekai show. There are many shows that take characters who aren’t important in our world and turn them into worldbeaters, but Drifters takes characters who are already great in our world and pits them against unfathomable odds on another. A new world has opened up for us thanks to the actions of Toyohisa Shimazu, a man who was displaced from his home after the Battle of Sekigahara. Those who enjoy isekai and those who are interested in the history of Japan would enjoy this performance.
2. ARIFUETA: FROM COMMONPLACE TO WORLD’S STRONGEST
The principal character isn’t always going to be a pleasant person. Hajime Nagumo, one of numerous students from Arifureta’s class who have been transported to another world in order to preserve it, serves as the protagonist of the game. However, he lacks formidable attacks and is so shielded from harm by his peers…until he is exposed. His arm is eaten by a gigantic monster after the treachery, which drops him into an even more perilous area of the dungeon. After that, Hajime vows to become the greatest and return to his world, no matter who he has to trample on in order to do it. he
Despite his desire to be overpowered, Re:protagonist Zero’s isn’t endowed with Rimuru’s arsenal of special abilities. Instead, he has a more gloomy skill set. Subaru’s special ability is called “Return by Death,” and it allows him to return to a previous point in time while maintaining his memories. In each Re:Zero storyline, Subaru tries to make the world a better place by using his abilities, but he dies and has to try again until he gets it right. Re:Zero, one of the year’s most popular shows, was just renewed for a second season.
4. LOG HORIZON
Immediately following the release of Elder Tale’s most recent expansion, a young guy named Shiroe finds himself sucked into its world. Shiroe has no way of getting out of this situation, as he ends up on the same server as tens of thousands of other people.
Fortunately, he’s nearing the game’s level cap and is a well-known player on the server. Rimuru and Shiroe are both trapped in virtual worlds, and they must use their intellect to help build cities for the people around them.
5. IS IT WRONG TO TRY TO PICK UP GIRLS IN A DUNGEON?
What sets you apart from the crowd isn’t necessarily your physical strength, but your capacity to develop it. Bell Cranel, a youthful member of the Hestia Familia, works for his goddess Hestia as the only member of his family. When Bell works hard enough, he develops a peculiar ability that allows him to level up quickly and acquire a large amount of experience. From episode one, Bell is a weakling who relies on others to save him; by the end of season 1, he has become an inspiration to those around him because of his strength and gentle nature. After five years, the show finally got a second season, so viewers won’t feel deceived when they’ve finished the first half of the season.
6. ONE PUNCH MAN
If the appeal of Slime is a protagonist who is readily capable of defeating anyone, then One Punch Man is not much of a stretch recommendation at all. Former salaryman Saitama decided to become a hero instead of going back to work. He followed the same training regimen every day until he was stronger than anyone on Earth. This great strength is what draws both heroes and villains to him, even as he lives his life unaware of how powerful he actually is. Many anime lovers have already seen the first season of this series, but if they haven’t, there’s no better time to get in than right now.
7. NO GAME NO LIFE
“Blank” is a renowned player who has never lost a game. What is Blank hiding? A brother-and-sister team by the names of Sora and Shiro make up this duo. As Tet, the god of games, challenges the two of them, they are soon invited to the land of Disboard, where all conflicts are resolved through games. But they’re up against an ancient race that’s had centuries to adapt to this world. Sora and Shiro are both fully at home in this environment. Humans are the lowest-ranked race in the galaxy, thus they both pledge to work toward unifying all races under the banner of mankind.
Once again, the protagonist of this “stuck in a virtual game” world series is an extremely talented action hero. Even though you’d expect such a specialized premise to become stale, the fact that this series is so successful shows that there are many different methods to accomplish it. While Momonga plays Yggdrasil, the game’s server has been shut down after a long period of time.
Instead of remaining in the game until it is shut down, Momonga sees the NPCs suddenly take on lives of their own. Momonga refuses to go and instead studies this odd new Yggdrasil.
9. KNIGHT’S & MAGIC
When Tsubasa Kurata buys his favorite mecha, he gets hit by a car and dies. Ernesti Echevalier, or “Eru,” is a young nobleman who has been reincarnated in another realm. Because of his old-world technical expertise, he gains new-world magic skills as well as the ability to construct “Knights,” the massive robots that serve as the principal means of military strength in this new world. “Realistic” robots that are little more than “huge hunks of metal” have been replaced by laser-firing Gundams in just a few short years.
10. WISE MAN’S GRANDCHILD
Wise Man’s Grandchild is the closest thing to Reincarnated as a Slime on this list. When Rimuru arrives in a new world, he begins to “upgrade” the creatures there, building a city for them that swiftly transforms from medieval to modern. When Shin Wolford enters the school of the country’s most powerful magicians and warriors, they find him already gifted with magic. Then he begins training his closest allies, helping them improve their lives and protect their lands. If you can get past the typical isekai clichés, there is a good show beneath this.
The story of Kazuma Satou, who dies at a young age and is reincarnated in a new world full of strange things like magic and Demon Kings, is the focus of KonoSuba. Kazuma’s goal is to defeat the Demon King with Aqua’s help, but Kazuma isn’t quite up to the task.
Megumin, a youthful magician, and Darkness, a crusader, join Kazuma’s party. Fans can count on KonoSuba to take them on an adventure that is both educational and amusing. If you’re a fan of Slime, there’s no way you won’t enjoy following Kazuma and his friends as they navigate the perils of a strange alternate reality.
12. Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon
When a dragon shows up at Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon’s door, she finds out that she has been living the most boring life imaginable. Tohru, the dragon, has the ability to take on the form of a human.
Eventually, they’re joined by another Dragon named Kanna, and they’re soon a family dealing with the same problems as everyone else. The anime doesn’t follow the usual Isekai logic but it does so much more to explore the characters and we’re sure you’ll fall in love with it.
13. Death March kara Hajimaru Isekai Kyousoukyoku
Debugging video games is a major part of Ichirou Suzuki’s life, and his story is told through his eyes in Death March. If you’ve ever watched him fall asleep and wake up dreaming about one of his games, you know he’s a weirdo, right? Satou is the name he goes by when he forms a group of friends and embarks on an epic journey in the new world he has found himself in.
The premise of this anime may sound familiar, but the show itself is a welcome change from the usual Isekai fare. In this anime, rather of focusing on specific goals, the protagonists are more concerned with absorbing as much of the world as possible. World-building is just as good as Slime, which is why we enjoy it so much.
14. Isekai Maou to Shoukan Shoujo no Dorei Majutsu
How Not to Summon a Demon Lord follows Sakamoto Takuma’s journey into a bizarre world where he’s Diablo, the Demon King, and must fight his way out. Starting his journey as the slave of two girls, he turns them into his subordinates and embarks on his adventure with his clever powers in toto.
When it comes to social skills, Sakamoto and Satoru share a lot in common with each other. Both of them are endowed with amazing abilities that they could easily use to harm others, but they are unwilling to do so.
15. The Rising Of The Shield Hero
The story of Naofumi Iwatani, a hero sent to a strange new planet, is told in Shield Hero. As a member of a team, he is tasked with taking a stand against evil and injustice. Iwatani loses faith in humanity as a result of the hardships he endures on a regular basis.
However, his quest is far from over, as he continues to make progress, however slowly. It’s safe to say that if you liked That Time I Was Reincarnated As A Slime, you’ll appreciate Naofumi Iwatani’s voyage.
