After the resounding success that was Sword Art Online, everyone wanted to participate in the isekai madness. Fans couldn’t seem to get enough of it, so light novelists and manga creators kept creating more and more stories about people being sent to another world.
But ultimately, it was hard not to notice how so many isekai stories sounded exactly the same. Many isekai anime followed outdated trends or were poorly written, which made fans cherish good isekai anime even more. At this point, most isekai fans would agree that it would be better to just give new seasons to the good anime series rather than keep making worse ones.
ten How a realistic hero rebuilt the kingdom has a whole war to solve
How a realistic hero rebuilt the kingdom managed to get two seasons in fairly quick succession, something unheard of for even popular series these days. The second season ended with Souma having properly settled into his role after finding out why he was made King of Elfrieden shortly after arriving.
However, there are still plot points to address, even though the second season has a solid ending. The light novel continues, and it’s obvious the series isn’t about combat. In place, How a realistic hero rebuilt the kingdom The focus continues to be on how Souma is revolutionizing this world through social reforms to make it a peaceful land.
9 A careful hero should show Seiya and Ristarte the repair of new worlds
cautious hero had an ending that was both a good ending and something of a cliffhanger. Seiya uses everything he has to save the world he was sent to by Ristarte, but after that Ristarte must break the rules to ensure he survives. As punishment, she is tasked with fixing a world even more broken than the last one she saved and once again has the ability to use Seiya to help her.
Although it seems like an impossible task the second time around, with such a hilarious protagonist as Seiya, it’s sure to still be a breeze. Additionally, the light novel sees him traveling to a new world and learning to fight even with the Limiters on.
8 Trapped in a dating simulator only completed his first arc
Trapped in a dating simulator is by no means the best isekai series. The show abandons its own premise early on, and more importantly, the show is barely animated in some places. However, that doesn’t mean the show doesn’t have its fans. For people used to the isekai series, this series still offers enough twists to make it worth watching.
However, the first season of Trapped in a dating simulator ended after covering only the first major arc. There are still plenty of reveals and surprises to come in the upcoming seasons, including seeing Leon and Marie’s friendship grow.
seven The Rising Of The Shield Hero Must Explore The Aftermath Of The Spirit Tortoise Arc
One of the few popular isekai near Sword Art Online, The Rise of the Shield Hero next season is technically already confirmed. There is a season 3 coming, although fans don’t know when it will actually be released. It can’t come too soon though, as the whole Spirit Tortoise arc strayed from what fans wanted to see in shield hero.
Fans of the light novel are well aware that there are much cooler stories waiting after the Spirit Tortoise arc. This includes what happens when Naofumi encounters the other heroes after the Spirit Tortoise arc, as all three were relatively useless during this storyline.
6 Dog Days deserves a chance to further explain its world
Compared to a lot of isekai series these days, Dog days was surprisingly healthy. There were a few ecchi elements – especially considering that defeat means a character’s clothes explode, but since this show aired, other shows have become a lot riskier.
The Dog days There were many unexplored aspects to the universe, however, such as the story of the two legendary heroes who appeared in the later series and how they managed to make their world such a peaceful place. If nothing else, it would be great to have Dog days just come back to have a low stress isekai streak for once.
5 Knight’s & Magic had just introduced a villain comparable to its hero
knight and magic looks like it ended at just the right part. After several episodes of Ernesti working on building his perfect mech, he finally comes up with a design he can stick to for more than a few weeks. Then, at the end, the main villains reverse-engineer some of his technology to create their own weapons.
Although Ern and his friends are able to defeat the villains, they escape, surely making each other threats down the line. Unfortunately, despite knight and magic being one of the best mecha anime of the 2010s, no second season is on the horizon.
4 No game, no life left with a blank that barely challenged most disboard companies
No game no life is the main series that everyone wants a sequel because the first season ended years ago. Fans have been waiting to find out what happened to Sora and Shiro since the series ended in 2014. The light novel has moved forward by so many volumes that the series could have two more seasons and likely not catch up.
At this point, the best fans can hope for right now is for No game no life to get another movie. The prequel movie No game no life zero was well received by fans and explained a bit more about how Disboard came to be. Maybe Madhouse could make sequel movies in the future.
3 This Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime Ended On A Huge Mystery
Whereas That time I had Reincarnated as Slime the second season had some highlights, it wasn’t as strong as the first overall. Despite this, the story ended with a big question mark. The heroes managed to defeat Clayman with such ease it was disappointing, but then they learned that he wasn’t the big bad.
Instead, Clayman’s allies proved far stronger than Clayman himself. With these characters still running around with no one to address them, Rimuru’s quest to create a safe world for his town is far from over. Currently there is no confirmation This time I got reincarnated as a Slime will have another season, but there’s definitely enough source material left for that.
2 KonoSuba has yet to see its heroes challenge the Demon King
The worst heroes of the fantasy world of Kono Suba are scheduled for a return sooner rather than later. The first two seasons saw them take on two of the Demon King’s generals, but they still have several more to take down before they can directly challenge the Demon King.
However, if fans of Kono Suba are being honest, they’re unlikely to even care to finish the show’s story. What they really want is more shenanigans from Kazuma and the most useless party members ever. Unfortunately, there is no confirmation as to the date of the third season, so Kono Suba fans will have to be patient.
1 Mushoku Tensei has many mysteries to explain
After so many episodes centered on the adventures of Dead End, the last episode of Mushoku Tensei Season 1 ends with Rudeus alone. He is forced to deal with much of the trauma from his past and feels like he has no reason to keep moving forward except one.
Rudeus leaves at the end with the decision to find his mother, who still seems to be there without his knowing where she is. As one of the few good isekai, Mushoku Tensei deserves the opportunity to finish telling his story. Not only does Rudeus’ family need to be recovered, but there are so many unanswered mysteries.
