In her first life, the renowned and genius surgeon Dr. Aoi Takamoto was Elise de Clorance, a villainess of noble descent. Elise's selfishness, insolence, and obsessive love for her fiancé—Prince Linden de Romanoff—led to the deaths of her family members and, eventually, herself. Only after being reborn did Elise realize the error of her ways and decide that, instead of ruining lives, she would devote herself to saving them. But a tragic airplane crash robs her of her dreams too soon.

By a miracle, Elise wakes up in her original body before her official engagement to Linden. Recognizing the chance to cherish her loving family and free Linden from an unwanted marriage, Elise wishes to use her advanced medical knowledge to continue down the path of saving lives. In a deal with the emperor, Elise is given only six months to prove that her true place is not on the throne, but rather with the wounded and ailing who desperately need her help.

Gekai Elise is one of the more original isekai, or should I say, “reverse isekai”, in recent years. What makes this one cool is that Elise is given another shot at life in her original world AFTER being isekai’d to Earth. This allows her the unique experience of combining both her original life’s knowledge and the medicinal skills she gained on Earth making for a really fun watch.

Now, there’s going to be some party poopers who say the show isn’t accurate or realistic in its portrayal of some medical stuff and to that I’ll agree, but it’s ultimately anime not grey’s anatomy. I’m not watching ...

Mixed Feelings
I will be honest, this was a disappointment.

I read the story (multiple times) and I was looking forward to see it happening in an anime, but they butchered the story and the characters a lot resulting in an incoherent and messy story that could've been soo much better.

If I had to describe how this anime feels, then I would see it feels like watching a Hollywood adaptation of a beloved anime.

Look, the new story isn't bad. It's passable.
But is that what you want from an anime?

I do recommend this anime simply because it's pretty unique, but I recommend reading the story more.

Gekai Elise is a Medical Romance anime that is has Double Reincarnation + Time Loop.
We have our main character Elise who was reincarnated in modern world after being executed in her first life. We learn that she was definitely not a gift. She did have very bad attitude and was obsessed with idea marriage with the Prince. In this life she had a loving family and easy life but after reincarnation her life was not easy. In this life she became a very famous doctor but sadly she died again (Luck is not on her side as we can see) after this she is Reincarnated ...
