So without further ado, let’s dive straight into the list.
Here are the Top 10 New Isekai and Fantasy Anime You Need To Watch in 2021:
The Dungeon Of The Black Company
Although, decently long-running manga, the anime only really kicked off recently and has made huge waves across the anime community.
This series is pretty hyped and from the very few episodes we’ve seen so far, we guarantee that it’s as good as the manga, a must watch for sure!
We follow Kinji Ninomiya, a useless, neat, not learning anything.
Not training, not employed and absolutely lazy, waster.
But kinji’s life is not so bad, he actually saved enough money through real estate investments to pay for a penthouse lifestyle without having to do a single day of work.
But the story really kicks off when our hero finds himself transported to a fantasy world where he can no longer enjoy that carefree lifestyle.
And is forced to work for a mining company, doing hard labor in a dangerous dungeon.
Desperate to escape and regain that financial stability and carefree life he once had, kinji work his hardest in an attempt to rise up the ranks and start relaxing once more.
Joined by an interesting cast of characters, the dungeon of the black company is a series not quite like any other isekai anime and one that you need to check out!
Banished From The Hero’s Party
Yet another brilliantly fresh take from the classic isekai and fantasy genre.
This long-running manga is finally getting turned into a seriously hyped-up anime series.
With a lot of backstory from numerous light novels and manga series, the anime has a lot to work with and we can hardly wait to see what happens.
The series itself is about Red, a member of the hero’s party.
One of the many powerful members that were destined to save the entire planet from an evil and powerful demon lord.
The story kicks off with our MC getting kicked out of the party and this anime only gets funnier from there.
Red is initially pretty shocked by this, what is an adventurer supposed to do if he can’t adventure.
Well Red decides to use this opportunity to set up a little shop, keeping his life and true backstory a secret.
But a beautiful girl from his past shows up and moves into his house, threatening the new life that our hero is trying to build.
Funny, romantic, light-hearted and absolutely brilliant anime series with a fun take on the classic fantasy anime genre!
Peach Boy Riverside
It is hard not to get pumped up for Peach Boy Riverside.
Starting off as a simple web manga, the series received an official manga adaptation and is now finally out as an actual anime series.
And one that certainly lived up to all our expectations!
We follow a princess by the name of Saltherine or Sally for short.
Living her peaceful life deep within the safety of the castle walls, loved by most, she soon becomes bored of her safe little castle and countryside life.
Until one day, when a vicious horde of demons comes knocking at her door with her castle under attack, she has no idea what to do.
Fortunately, her town is saved by a mysterious lone traveler by the name of Kibitsu Mikoto.
Slaying these monsters effortlessly, Sally is shocked by how vicious and grim the world outside is and is determined to learn more about it.
Setting off on an epic adventure with this mysterious and strange traveler.
It soon becomes apparent that the fate of this mythical fantasy realm rests on her shoulders, as her harmless adventure soon becomes more and more important and vital to the safety of her world!
I’m Standing On A Million Lives
A brilliant isekai anime that shakes up the genre in a fresh new way.
An awesome watch so far, that really does justice to the manga.
We are enjoying the arcs and cannot wait to see what’s next!
Following Yuusuke Yotsuya, an anti-social and extremely selfish MC, a serious hatred of other people, society and even himself.
A survivalist that is more of a psychopath than anything else, that is actually forced to do good.
It is seriously rare that you come across an MC this original and interesting.
Yuusuke had us on the edge of our seats because we had no idea what he’d be doing next.
The story itself has our MC and his classmates transported to a magical isekai realm that is filled with a number of strange and interesting mythological creatures.
Upon arriving Yuusuke meets this godlike entity called the Game Master that gives the adventurers a quest.
Giving each of our adventurers some special magical abilities.
A warrior, a magician and a farmer, an awesome adventure with some seriously action-packed fight scenes.
But a clear humorous undertone, I’m standing on a million lives walks the line between serious and seriously funny.
Quite unlike any other anime we’ve ever seen!
Most historical anime try to be authentic and realistic, reflecting a gritty and unflinching look.
And what life used to be and the issues with kings and kingdoms.
Yasuke throws that all out the window, loosely basing itself on the famous African warrior that served in japan in the time of samurais.
An absolute awesome mix of historical and science fantasy with some absolute slick animation and samurai battle scenes.
There is very little not to love about Yasuke.
A fun mix of magic and super futuristic technology!
We follow Yasuke witnessing demon lords and the crumbling of empires, but the story does not set itself across Yasuke’s prime.
It chooses to focus on 20 years after his prime, as the legendary Ronin looks to put his gritty past behind him.
Encountering a singer and her daughter at a local bar, Yasuke offers to protect them and takes her sick daughter to see a special doctor.
But of course, his history catches up with him and our hero slowly finds himself dragged into a world of ultra violence conquerors of japan and a battle against demons and a peculiar supernatural force.

Vowing to live a carefree, stress-free and pleasant existence, she spends her time hunting slimes, the easiest targets.
But centuries soon pass and we realize that azusa is no longer as low-leveled as she used to be.
Our MC has become insanely overpowered and can no longer maintain her simple and secretive lifestyle.
Soon forced out her simple and easy lifestyle and dragged into an unnecessarily complex and stressful situation.
From random adventurers looking to join her on adventures, she does not want to take on challengers looking to prove themselves and defeat Azusa in battle.
Some awesome action scenes that are split up with some legitimately heartfelt and emotionally driven scenes.

Intensely heavy and taxing training.

Starting off as a seriously old manga series, Uzumaki has since seen a live action film and an anime series that is set to release soon but with rumors of it being delayed.
Seriously, we’ve been excited for Uzumaki for a while now and if it gets delayed once more, I really don’t know what to say.
In the meanwhile, we really recommend you check out the manga, it’s seriously brilliant!
Following a high score in a small and strange japanese town, that is cursed by some absolutely twisted and horrifying supernatural events.
We slowly start to learn more and more about these strange events and how they possess and twist the unassuming villagers.

We follow Fushi, an immortal being that can shift through many forms.
Starting off as a mysterious alien orb, arriving on earth with no emotions, feelings or sense of identity.
Taking on forms ranging from a village boy to a white wolf.
The story of To Your Eternity was actually inspired by the death of the creator’s actual grandmother.
She used the emotions she felt about the passing of her loved one through Fushi.
Emotionally very cold and distant, but slowly develops her personality through her interactions with others.
Well received in both Japan and across the World.
