This stack contains non-isekai fantasy anime that you could easily mistake for being an isekai.
Isekai means "different world" and is a Japanese genre of portal fantasy and science fiction. It is a bit hard to define, but generally revolves around a person (or multiple people) who are transported or reincarnated into another world.
Since this definition is fairly broad, you'll find some shows like "Sonny Boy" or "Bakemono no Ko" that are technically isekai, but may not seem like it, as they do not share the most common tropes that you'll see in other isekai anime like “Death March”, “Kenja no Mago”, “Isekai smartphone” or “Mushoku Tensei”. While these shows are not completely identical, they do share a number of tropes, like having a male protagonist enter a medieval fantasy world filled with monsters and magic where they either start with powerful abilities or slowly gain them, similarly to progressing in a fantasy RPG. It is also common for similar isekai shows to include game mechanics like ability stats, skill names, UI screens or even an infinite inventory. Another common trope is for the protagonist to be a chosen or summoned hero who goes on a quest to save the world, ending up with great powers, great riches and a harem of love interests.
This is a list of shows that could be mistaken as isekai since they share a lot of the most common tropes, but missing the element of being transported to another world.
A great example is “Danmachi” where the protagonist already exists in a fantasy world, has a unique and powerful ability and explores a dungeon full of monsters, gaining new stats and skills as though he was the protagonist of a fantasy RPG. Other examples include powerful protagonists being reborn within the same world or shows mostly taking place within a VRMMO.
Feel free to send me a message if I’ve included an actual isekai by mistake, or if you have any suggestions!
No doubt all will be familiar with the archetypal Isekai setting. Everything runs on video game logic (if there isn't outright a magical HUD), the main city is a nondescript walled circle with a river through it, and the worldbuilding only goes as far as "there is a good kingdom with an adventurer's guild or magic academy, there's a demon king and that's about it." While these particular wounds constitute Isekai arguably as much as the whole being-brought-to-another-world part, the latter is considered the defining characteristic, leaving a host of shows that are, for all intents and purposes, exactly the same thing high and dry.
This collection endeavours to catalogue such television - anime that unmistakably feel like Isekai, with most or all of the same tropes, written with the same basic structure and setting, but that strictly speaking aren't actually Isekai. Common examples would include cases where the protagonist is instead actively playing a video game rather than being reborn in one, or is a character who reincarnated but originates from the same world. A male protagonist initially framed as weak but with some unique ability is also a common theme, as is their being out of familiar surroundings and with an almost exclusively female secondary cast.
It must be mentioned that this list is somewhat dynamic, since more Isekai and Isekai-like shows are announced on a practically weekly basis, and, sadly, will be for the foreseeable future. Attempts are made to keep this collection consistent, but occasionally shows that aren't really that Isekai-y may be phased out to make way for something far more egregious.
A disclaimer, there may indeed be one or two bona fide Isekai hidden down below, but this is only working from if it isn't already categorised as one, an operation which may yet be incomplete or debated over. Ultimately this is first and foremost just a collection of "Generic Fantasy usually adapted from Light Novels," so such an error will hardly be the end of the world. Sequels are omitted due to size constraints, but - predictably - many of the shows listed have continuations.

Well, this anime list that I made might be a recommendation for those of you who want to watch anime that only has 1 season, then adapted from a Light Novel/Manga, also I included the adaptation of Visual Novel/Web Manga, but you could say the anime list that I made is all romance😅
But for anime that has 1 season with a rating of <6, I didn't include it, so don't ask why, then don't expect the list I made to contain BL/GL elements.

These are shows that have a score of 7.25 or below that I feel deserved a bit more love. Basically, shows that are underrated or disliked by the vast majority, but they can be really fun for the niche audience it appeals to.
Disclaimer: I'm NOT saying these shows are actually hidden gems or amazing masterpieces misunderstood by all. What I am saying is that most people make the show seem way worse than it really is (in my humble opinion). So if any of these entries sound interesting to you, I encourage you to give them a try before writing it off based on scores or reviews.
this list of anime of smartass main character who are arrogant or sometimes are a bit of quiet and humble but they are always thinking ways to outsmart his opponents with clever ideas.
Im building up this list... open to recommendations xD so feel free to share some others ideas or if you are enthusiastic just name that anime that you want to nominate...
Rudeus greyrat is a mastermind... a leader from young age we can whats he is thinking the dude is smart.
this list currently on the work... some are from my memory so Im ordering my ideas some of it is because the anime let us know the thinking process or we can see the cleverness of the character.
Naofumi is a strategist and smart dude but was also naive.
anyways this list if you are looking for smartass dude stories.. here goes the list if I fail or some are not considered very smart let me know... some of the animes I saw it a long time ago so if my memories did fail... then I will make the correction
OP MC isekai series for those who enjoy when the mc blows anything from his path and makes a name for himself in the isekai world. I'm writing the op level of the mc in the series text thingy so it will be easier to decide what to watch.
Low op means there are challenges, but the mc pretty easily can surpass them.
Medium op means that there can also be lots of challenges, but the mc has cool moves or something like that, or he has not that many challenges but isint that cool.
High op means there are little to no challenges for the mc and that they pretty easily demolish anything in their path. They also have cool moves and spells
Very High op means that nothing is really a challenge for the mc and if something is, they will overcome it with something unbiliveably stupidly op that it makes no sense.
