He also mentions reading Quintessential Quintuplets and feeling that it was too vanilla in comparison. The conversation then shifts to a new isekai anime about a main character who seeks revenge on his former party members by buying their mothers from the slave market, which the creator finds to be an example of a tired and overused trope in the genre. However, he admits that he finds the concept hilarious in a ridiculous way.
  • 00:40:00 In this section, the speaker discusses the importance of fully committing to a particular style or trope in anime, rather than attempting to mix in different themes that do not necessarily complement each other. The speaker cites examples of anime that went "full degenerate" and were successful, such as "Redo of Healer" and "Isekai Labyrinth". The speaker also touches on the controversy surrounding the portrayal of slavery in some anime, noting that if an anime writer is going to include such a theme, they should do so in a fully-committed, degenerate manner rather than attempting to mix it with other themes.

  • 00:45:00 In this section of the video, the host reacts to a list of the greatest isekai anime of all time by gaming journalism website Game Rant. He notes that while he is curious about the list, he has never given much thought to ranking isekai before. The host also comments on the tendency of Shonen fans to become competitive over ranking their favorite shows and prefers the more lighthearted nature of fellow isekai fans. The list starts with cautious hero and grimgar at number 28 and 27 respectively, and the host notes that while grimgar was a good isekai anime, the fact that the list includes 28 entries seems like a stretch.
  • 00:50:00 In this section, the speaker discusses the anime Grimgar, which he thinks is a unique and interesting isekai because of its darker and more realistic tone. He compares it to other isekai anime where the protagonists are often overpowered. The speaker also talks about a lesser-known isekai anime called Kyo Kara Maoh! that came out in 2004 and has 78 episodes, which he had never heard of before. The anime is about a Japanese teenager who becomes the Demon King in a medieval Europe-inspired world after being sucked into a swirling portal in a toilet.
  • 00:55:00 In this section, the speaker discusses some of the isekai anime on the list, including Shigayugi and Now and Then, Here and There. The speaker notes that Shigayugi is an old-school isekai that has stood the test of time and deserves to be on the list. Regarding Now and Then, Here and There, the speaker believes it should be higher on the list due to its dark and brutal nature, with one of the most sickening villains in early anime. It differs from newer isekai anime in that it is not set in a fantasy world and showcases the brutality of being transported to an unknown world.

01:00:00 - 02:00:00

The video discusses various isekai anime, their ranking on the top isekai list, and the speaker's opinions on them. Rising of The Shield Hero is acknowledged as a mid-tier anime, while Sword Art Online Alicization is recommended as an isekai show that even newcomers to the genre will enjoy.

  • 01:00:00 In this section, the speaker discusses the isekai anime Rising of The Shield Hero and its placement on the list of top isekai anime. While the speaker acknowledges that Rising of The Shield Hero is a mid-tier anime compared to others in the genre, he believes that it deserves a spot on the list due to the relatively low bar for quality within the isekai genre. However, the speaker criticizes the second season of the show, stating that it lacks the revenge plot that made the first season so satisfying and that there is nothing particularly interesting about the anime as a whole beyond that plot. Despite this, the speaker still finds Rising of The Shield Hero enjoyable overall.
  • 01:05:00 In this section, the YouTuber reacts to the Shield Hero anime and its controversial portrayal of slavery as a plot point.

Nonetheless, it's a notable inclusion on this list of top isekai anime, which the YouTuber overall thinks is quite interesting and well done.
  • 01:10:00 In this section, the YouTuber discusses the anime series "Sunny Boy" and shares their thoughts on its experimental and weird concepts.

Although the YouTuber acknowledges that "Sunny Boy" may not be for everyone, they believe it will age like fine wine and become a cult classic in the future. They also compare it to "Fruits Basket" and note its exploration of adolescent themes. The YouTuber then briefly mentions other shows like "Gate" and expresses their appreciation for its fun concept.
  • 01:15:00 In this section, the video's narrator talks about his enjoyment of the anime "Komekko no Komojo." He explains it's technically not an isekai (a genre where a person is transported to another world) but a reincarnation in the same world instead. Despite this, he loves the show, and it's one of his top favorite anime of 2022. It's a charming show that doesn't take itself too seriously, and it's a good time with a lot of charm behind it. The narrator even played the opening theme on his wedding day, and it remains a banger.
  • 01:20:00 In this section, the reviewer discusses the anime series "Drifters" which is a high-energy action show that takes famous characters from history and puts them in a Battle Royale style story. The show is written by the same author as "Helsing" and is a lot of fun with over-the-top action scenes. The reviewer remembers being shocked that the main villain of the show is implied to be Jesus himself. Despite its absurdity, the reviewer feels that "Drifters" is a great show and is disappointed that it didn't get a second season.
  • 01:25:00 In this section, the YouTuber reacts to the placement of Ascendance of a Bookworm on the top isekai list and expresses surprise that it's ranked lower than expected. However, the YouTuber notes that the show stands out for its great world building, writing, and characters, making it deserving of a higher spot.

Despite the show never finishing, the YouTuber recommends it as a must-watch.
  • 01:30:00 In this section, the speaker discusses a classic anime that they believe is underrated and deserves more attention. Although the show lacks a proper ending, the speaker praises the storytelling and wishes to spend more time in that world. The speaker then transitions to discussing Sword Art Online, acknowledging that the series has received a lot of criticism, but stating that they believe it has its merits, especially in the Alicization arc. They argue that Alicization is everything fans wanted from Sword Art Online, even though it may not be peak writing, but it provides peak entertainment. The speaker notes that one of the best parts of Sword Art Online is when Kirito is not a part of it, and they are excited for the upcoming trilogy of movies focused on Asuna.
  • 01:35:00 In this section, the speaker discusses his thoughts on Sword Art Online Alicization, stating that while it has some faults such as the inclusion of Kirito, it is an isekai show that he could recommend to people who are not familiar with the genre. He praises the show's action and enthusiasm, and notes that it has an ending that sets it up for a potential shift towards a more futuristic, cyberpunk-style setting. The speaker recommends giving Alicization a chance, particularly for people who enjoy isekai shows.
  • 01:40:00 In this section, the speaker gives their opinion on various anime in the isekai genre, starting with "The Boy and the Beast," which the speaker considers to be Mamoru Hosoda's weakest film, and "Belle," which they didn't like, partly because they didn't watch it in cinemas. The speaker's nostalgia shines through when they talk about "Vision of Escaflowne," an old-school isekai anime that they remember liking but aren't sure if it has aged well. They also express their love for Yoko Kano's music, who they consider to be one of the greatest anime composers of all time, having done soundtracks for various anime shows such as Cowboy Bebop and Ghost in the Shell.
  • 01:45:00 In this section of the video, the YouTuber reacts to the top isekai anime of all time and shares their thoughts on the rankings. They discuss Yoko Kano's status in the industry and the variety of her OSTs, while questioning the high ranking of a particular anime they haven't watched yet.

They also discuss the placement of Saga of Tanya the Evil, finding it enjoyable but too high on the list.
  • 01:50:00 In this section, the speaker talks about various isekai anime and whether they should be on the list of the top isekai anime of all time. They discuss the anime Saga of Tanya the Evil and comment that it is a good show but did not do enough in the first season to be in the top 10. The speaker also realizes that their video thumbnail has been copied by someone else and jokes about sending a DMCA notice. They also mention the anime Devil is a Part-Timer and question whether it should be in the top 10.
  • 01:55:00 In this section, the speaker discusses several isekai anime titles that he believes deserve to be on the top list of all time. While the anime series "Isekai Maou to Shoukan Shoujo no Dorei Majutsu" may not be a top 10 isekai, it should be in the top 20 due to its unique premise of the demon lords coming to the real world and working at McDonald's. The speaker praises "Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!" ("KonoSuba") for working as a comedy based on character interactions rather than just parodying isekai tropes, despite being a parody of isekai itself. He believes it deserves to be in the top 10. Lastly, he states that "That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime" is deserving of being on the top 10 list, as it is a consistently good show with well-done politics and civilization building, but not necessarily a peak isekai.

  • 02:05:00 In this section, the YouTuber discusses their preference for the isekai anime Slime over Overlord, citing Slime's more interesting world-building.

  • 02:10:00 In this section, the speaker reflects on two anime, Inuyasha and No Game No Life, that made it to the top of some people's isekai lists but aren't as impressive to them personally. The speaker critiques Inuyasha's excessive filler and slow pacing, noting that it doesn't hold up for them as an adult. Meanwhile, they comment that No Game No Life could have been higher on the list if it had more seasons to flesh out the world and characters, but ultimately it didn't leave a memorable or lasting impact. They enjoy the concept of the show, which centers around games, and how different races integrate them, but don't think it deserves its high rank in the genre.
  • 02:15:00 In this section, the YouTuber discusses Log Horizon, calling it a "five head" show with great world-building and a main character who breaks the rules of the world.

The YouTuber hasn't finished season three and would only return if they heard more people talking about it. The video then moves to the number one isekai of all time, which the YouTuber reveals is Re:Zero, a show that is so good it is compared to anime outside of the isekai genre.

  • 02:20:00 In this section, the speaker discusses their thoughts on the anime "Re:Zero".

They then discuss a list of top isekai anime and say that they cannot disagree with much on the list and that "Re:Zero" and "Mushoku Tensei" are unbeatable in their opinion. The speaker also mentions that they wished "Spider Isakai" was on the list and shares their mixed feelings about "KonoSuba."
  • 02:25:00 In this section, the YouTuber expresses their surprise at the quality of the top Isekai anime list created by game rant.
