Top 10 Isekai Anime with Reincarnation Themes

The anime world is rich in the Isekai genre, which is full of reincarnation themes. Series such as Ascendance of a Bookworm, Mushoku Tensei and My Next Life as a Villainess are just some of the popular productions that this genre has brought to the anime universe.

Isekai is one of the most popular genres in anime today, and reincarnation is one of its most common themes. But interestingly, reincarnation-themed isekai anime are surprisingly creative and open up the most original universes for their fans.

Although the anime world has become saturated with reincarnation over the years, many series of this genre are still at the top. From the classic comedy KonoSuba to the recently popular Mushoku Tensei, reincarnation-themed isekai anime are still hugely popular and viewers can't get enough of the genre.

The characters populating unique fantasy worlds, along with fun and engaging storylines, provide a pretty clear reason why fans of the genre can't get enough. Read on to discover the top 10 isekai anime that successfully tackle the theme of reincarnation.

10- Reincarnated as a Sword

It's a difficult series for its audience to take seriously because of the title, but it's an unexpectedly impressive series despite the name.

The series is about a nameless character who transforms into a sword with many fantastic abilities. In his new sword form, this nameless character meets a young girl named Fran who will hold him. Together this strange duo embarks on an adventure to become the best warrior ever.

9- Saga of Tanya The Evil

This anime makes a very interesting and original entry into the reincarnation genre. Normally in isekai anime, our main character is reincarnated as a hero in the fantasy world, while in Sega of Tanya the Evil it is the opposite.

Our anime begins with an ordinary white-collar man finding himself as a little girl in an alternate universe where Tanya, a ruthless soldier, must rise through the ranks in the army if she wants to save herself from this endless cycle of reincarnation.

This isekai anime is a great choice for novelty if you're tired of clichéd isekai and looking for something different.

7- The World's Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated In Another World As An Aristocrat

Lugh Tuatha De, once the most skilled assassin the world has ever known, is now a young aristocrat, now a nobleman, and must save the world by killing the hero of the world into which he was reborn. Instead of defeating the villain and saving the world in the isekai genre, this series has to defeat the hero and save the world in this series, which contains a non-exaggerated dose of drama and suspense, this series is one of the great favorites of isekai fans in recent times.

MyAnimelist Rating: 7.36/10

6- Ascendance Of A Bookworm

Ascendance of A Bookworm doesn't feature the fantastic adventures typical of most isekai reincarnation genres, but that hasn't stopped it from being one of the most beloved isekai. This sweet series follows the adventures of a character named Myne. Myne was a bookworm and book lover in her previous life, and now she's doing her best to rekindle that love in her new life, but it won't be easy since books are not very common in her new world.

The series is a nice breath of fresh air among the slow-paced but highly entertaining action-packed anime.

MyAnimelist Rating: 8.00/10

5- I've Been Killing Slimes For 300 Years & Maxed Out My Level

While most isekai anime deal with action-packed fantasy adventures, this series slows down the pace and tells a sweet story of everyday life. After an early grave, Azusa Aizawa is reborn as a powerful immortal in a magical world and gets a second chance.

But instead of looking for excitement, Azusa wants to spend her new life peacefully on a farm.

I've Been Killing Slimes For 300 Years & Maxed Out My Level is a cute series that follows the daily routine of sweet, sweet Azusa as she takes care of her farm on a daily basis, makes new friends and lives her new immortal life to the fullest. It's a great series for people who are looking for something simple and relaxing, not fast paced.

MyAnimelist Rating: 6.93/10

4- My Next Life As A Villainess

When this series first came out, most people thought it was one of the classic boring isekai series, but My Next Life As A Villainess is anything but classic and boring. After suffering a head injury, Katarina's past life comes to light and she uses these past experiences to save herself from death, which completely changes the direction of her destiny

With its sympathetic characters and many sweet moments, this series was one of the best new releases and started the trend of evil female characters in the anime world.

MyAnimelist Score: 7.47/10

3- Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation

One of the newest in the Isekai genre, this anime has only been around for a short time, but it has managed to become one of the best in the genre. Although it is not one of the most unique series on the market, it has managed to hook fans with its dramatic storyline and memorable characters.

Our series centers on Rudeus Greyrat, a character who died a painful death in a past life and is reborn in a world where magic is possible. Our character sets himself the goal of gathering as much power as possible to live his life to the fullest and live a meaningful life.

MyAnimelist Score: 8.38/10

2- KonoSuba: God's Blessing On This Wonderful World!

At first glance, this anime looks like an average, ordinary anime, but it makes up for this mediocrity with its extremely sympathetic characters and comedy that makes you laugh a lot.

KonoSuba tells the story of a character named Kazuma Satou. Kazuma Sataou lives a pathetic life of drudgery and lack of responsibility until he finds himself in a fantasy world where he is tasked with killing the Demon King.

MyAnimelist Rating: 8.26/10

1- That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime

It's easy to judge this series at first glance, as the title is pretty ridiculous, but this series is one of the best isekai on the market. 

The series is about a slime demon named Rimuru Tempest, who was an ordinary person in his previous life and lived an ordinary life as a slime demon. He wants to use his powers to create a society that replicates the modern world. With its sympathetic main character and well thought out world, this is arguably one of the best of the genre.

MyAnimelist Score: 8.14/10

As a result, productions like Ascendance of a Bookworm, Mushoku Tensei, and My Next Life as a Villainess are among the best examples of this genre, offering viewers fun and original stories. Fans of isekai anime can step into new and unique worlds by checking out the series in this article.
