Eight Bit studio’s That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime is a popular choice, but there are others that have stood out. To the joy of viewers, these anime either put a new spin on an already-tired genre or just embrace classic clichés with open arms.
1. Death March
Death March To The Parallel World Rhapsody’s Ichirou Suzuki, the series’ protagonist, gets reincarnated after he overworks himself and wakes up in an RPG world that contains aspects of games he was creating before he fell asleep, rather than having to die or fall into a bizarre ritual. As soon as he is able to utilize magic and level up, he is ambushed by a group of monsters and forced to defend himself.
Rather of focusing on a specific objective, the protagonist and his eventual comrades in Death March just explore the world they find themselves in. Fan of world-building and more concerned with the journey than the final destination would enjoy this option.

Shiroe and his allies learn to coexist with the game’s NPCs, called as “natives,” as they go through the game’s various adventures.
