Are you a fan of transport to another world anime? Here is a list of the top Isekai anime 2019.
The Rising of the Shield Hero
Date aired: Jan 9, 2019 to Jun 26, 2019
The anime is the story of 4 heroes from modern Japan summoned to another world where their kingdom is troubled by Waves of Catastrophe. Among these 4 heroes is our main character Naofumi. Though being a hero is already great in itself and is what you would most likely want in a new place, the slight problem is that he doesn’t have any weapon. He became known as the shield hero.
It all started when Naofumi was in a library finding some light novels to read. which is his usual practice. If he is not at home, he goes out to the library. Here, he found a book about 4 heroes saving a kingdom. As he continues to browse the pages, a light suddenly engulfs the area and he was sent to another world.
It’s quite interesting to see how our shield hero would be able to help the Kingdom deal with its problems. As Naofumi learns about the place, he also experiences the challenges of getting a shield instead of a real weapon.
Some of the good parts of The Rising of the Shield Hero are its interesting characters especially Naofumi and its unusual story. When it comes to animation and overall visual effects, we could give this anime good praise. Certainly worth watching for isekai fans. This anime is also among the best anime 2019.
Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun
Date aired: Oct 5, 2019
I personally think that this anime is pretty fun to watch. The story is about our main character Iruma who got sold to a demon by his irresponsible parents. The good part is that instead of being eaten by the demon, he was made the demon’s grandson.
He was sent to a demon school. This is where all the fun happens since everyone in the school are demons except for Iruma. So his new granddad has to do everything in order to keep his secret that Iruman is indeed human.
The art is beautiful, the sound is not that great but still well done for me. The characters are really fun to watch. You will surely have a good laugh every episode of this in another world anime.
Date aired: Apr 10, 2019 to Jun 26, 2019
Our main character here is a typical office worker who usually ends up working even past working hours. One day, in his usual schedule of staying late in his work, its time to go home and while on the street he met an accident and died. He was reincarnated in another world were people could use magic.
At a young age of 8, Shin Wolford could now use magic. He is a grandson of a famous magician in their place, also considered a hero – Merlin Wolford. Shin could not just use magic, at a very young age its surprising how he could easily learn everything that Merlin teaches him. He seems to have a natural gift with using magic and also have high skills when it comes to martial arts.
Upon arriving in the right age, he is enrolled in a magic academy where his journey will start. Kenja no mago is the story of Shin in his high school life learning more about life and being with friends. Plus, dealing with demons in and around the city.
Cautious Hero: The Hero Is Overpowered but Overly Cautious
Probably among the best isekai 2019. I was even more impressed after watching the last episode of this anime. The story is about our protagonist Ryuuguuin, Seiya who was summoned to another world by a Goddess known as Ristarte. Seiya is a very strong and powerful heor but a very cautious one. And we can safely say that Ristarte is quite a useless Goddess that is why he needed the help of a hero.
Their journey is to save the world from 4 demon lords. It’s not as serious as The Rising of a Shield Hero, it’s more on the Sitcom Comedy side. The art is good enough and the animation is not that bad as well. Nothing to complain about this part.
The Cautious Hero has an excellent sound effect and opening theme. And I would give it a 9/10 when it comes to the characters. If you are looking for a fun isekai anime to watch, you’ve already found one.
Demon Lord, Retry!
Date Aired: Jul 4, 2019 to Sep 19, 2019
Demon Lord, Retry! is not that great but good enough for me. What’s special about this anime is its fun to watch. Though you would not appreciate much its characters and animation, the good thing is it could leave you with a good laugh. Which is better compared to seeing a serious type of anime with a very poor animation.
If you are expecting something as epic as Overlord, you will surely be disappointed. However, if you are simply looking for an isekai anime that you could enjoy watching in your free time, you’re probably for a good ride.
The story is about a game developer who was suddenly transported to a game world. He became a character that he had created. His journey centers around saving lolis and taking them under his wing. This another world anime is worth watching.
Didn’t I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?!
This anime is a good isekai anime. The main characters von Ascham, Adele, Reina, Pauline and Mavis are fun and entertaining to watch. The character designs are not that excellent but not too bad as well.
The story is about Misato Kurihara who is not your typical person since she stood out most of the time. Everything in life is quite easy for her. However, she encountered a sudden death and was transported to another world.
Before being reincarnated in a new world, she was granted one wish. With this, she wished to experience and ordinary life – we wanted to be an average person. So she was reborn as von Ascham. Did the gods granted her wish? It’s for you to find out.
Do you love your mom and her two-hit multi-target attacks
Date aired: Jul 13, 2019 to Sep 28, 2019
This anime is about the unlikely journey of Masato and his mom Mamako in the world of fantasy online game. I think it is the first that we will see a mother involved in an Isekai anime. Though being in a game world is what most teenager gamers dream of, being accompanied by their mom is a different story.
Everything happened so fast. In a normal day, he was just trying to fill-up a survey by the government. A woman came to their home and after a few introductions did something to his computer, then suddenly Masato suddenly finds himself in a tunnel of light going inside a game.
The only thing I don’t like about this anime is the harem setup. I personally am not a fan of fan service, so I don’t appreciate too much harem. Aside from this, I am also not quite impressed with the animation and design. The animation reminds me of Isekai Cheat Magician.
High School Prodigies Have It Easy Even In Another World
This anime is about a group of Japanese students who are considered prodigies due to their unbelievable talents. Each member of the group specializes in a different field. The students from Japan were sent to another world where they help in dealing with various issues. And due to their talents/skills, they are considered as the hope of this new world they got transported to.
I continued to watch this anime mainly because of the excellent character design of the female characters and good animation. When it comes to its plot/story, I think it falls short on this part. I’ll consider Choyoyui as an average isekai anime.
Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest
The story of Arifureta revolved around a high schooler named Hajime Nagamo who got transported to another world together with his classmates. Our protagonist Hajime is an every date otaku so being summoned to another world is somewhat a dream come true.
In the new world, they were considered heroes and are expected to save the human race. Everything seems so cool aside from the fact that Hajime is the weakest in the group. Thus, he is often bullied for being weak.
Everything changed for him when they went on training at a Labyrinth. What happened on the Labyrinth? It’s something that you have to discover.
Isekai Cheat Magician
Yes, from the name itself this is another Isekai anime. What I did find a unique feature right of the bat is the fact that the male protagonist was sent to another world together with a female partner.
Right on the first episode, you’ll see how OP our main characters are – Rin and Taichi. Some may hate this concept but I know others will find it interesting. It was interesting for me so I have watched until the 5th episode. What decided me to stop watching this anime is its poor animation. I guess it would have been a good one if the character designed were well done and animation is good. It’s what most fans would look for in an isekai anime.
So yeah, if there are other options to choose from, I do not suggest watching this anime. I decided to include it in this isekai anime list since it was quite promising but just did not live up to the expectation of many.
So there you go, these are the top isekai anime 2019 that you might want to watch if you are a fan of this type of anime.
