Isekai Anime, Manga and Light Novels

Isekai (異世界) anime are "alternate world" (sometimes called "strange world") anime where characters from our world are somehow transported to a different world. This other world could be virtual, magical, or just... different.

Isekai anime have been around for a long time, but they have become much more common in recent years.

Please note: If you add a new title, you can only add one title. You have to chose 1 favorite. Any submissions with multiple titles will be deleted. If you don't have a favorite in one or more of the categories, just leave it blank.
