Shield Hero is one of the best isekai imo along with Re:Zero and Slime

Spice & Wolf and Made in Abyss are not isekai
Lol, the isekai anime is the same as carrying the fantasy genre, which is different only the theme of the storyline, where everyone is called into the game or virtual world, as well as spice and wolf are essentially the same about fantasy, this is not a story about the modern era or logical things, it's all the same about magic and the supernatural, that's isekai
nope, Isekai is not always about fantasy, I can find a lot of Isekai novel that had zero fantasy in it. So Isekai =/= fantasy.

just because a series has magic and supernatural and isn't set in the morden era doesn't make it an isekai , besides isekai isn't even a real genre its a sub genre that combines with another one or a setting

I'll be impressed if Shield Hero is worse than Re:Zero, and from what I've heard, it sounds like a close race of what might piss me off and waste its concept for shock value and becoming like every other isekai more.
Being wrong is just an occupational hazard.

My opinion:

Shield hero(manga+anime) = Zero no Tsukaima = Arifureta (manga) <<< SAO = Slime(anime) << Overlord = Made in Abyss < Gate < Youjo Senki = Grimgar < NGNL < Danmachi = Konosuba = Re:zero <<< Kyousou Giga

Boring plots after rape accusation arc, dumb characters to make the MC better, shallow cliche villains, that even shounens villains from Hero Academia is much better than from Edge Hero. Undying cliche lazy writing RPG mechanics. Loli and formerly loli fighting for Edge hero's attention to appeal the weeb and edge to appeal the angsty teenage emo. Best isekai yeah better than ReZero yeah

In terms of themes, ReZero > Tate no Yuusha.
For Chara development, especially ReZero, it is not much different from Tate no Yuusha.
Honestly I prefer Naofumi than Subaru, Subaru is too annoying and made to fall into the same hole all the time.
To focus on the story, Tate no Yuusha > ReZero.
Tate no Yuusha has a clear plot and focus at the main story which is as hero to save the World and not too many fillers. ReZero I think the story is too broad and the main story is not very clear.

To Isekai or Fantasy Made in Abbys > Youjo Senki > Konosuba > Overload = Tensura = NGNL > ReZero = Tate no Yuusha > Danmachi = SAO = Log Horizon
The othets Isekai are trash 😂

Your mileage certainly will differ and I love to hear about it.


Made in Abyss <<<<<< NGNL = Sheild Bro < Youjo Senki < Spice and Wolf = Re:Zero in my opinion


For me the worse is shield hero < danmachi < Overlord = tanya the evil < Re: Zero = NGNL = made in abyss < Konosuba < FMAB < hunterxhunter 2011 = Shingeki no Kyojin.

Shield Hero is rather bottom of the barrel compared to most of the shows you mentioned. Overhyped as being "different from other isekai" with a promising start that continuously declined from then on. It's nothing special if not just an average anime.

From best to worst

No Game No Life > Made in Abyss > Spice & Wolf > Re:Zero > Youjo Senki > Shield Hero > Danmachi

It's almost as good as Re:Zero. It has enough quality to be in Isekai Quartet (Quintet) with Re:Zero, Konosuba, Overlord, and Saga of Tanya the Evil.
Better than other seasonal isekai like Wise Man's Grandchild, Smartphone, No Game No Life, Slime, Gate, How not to summon a Demon Lord, etc.

Shield Hero is not only the worst isekai I've ever watched, it's also the worst fantasy show I've ever watched.

So yeah, I like ReZero more.

Shield hero is good, but just good. The story is interesting and entertaining but it has a lot of flaws too. It's certainly not the best but it does have that "shield can't attack" unique gimmick which made things interesting (especially with the WN where all his "attacks" has very serious consequences and limitations). As expected most people think it's ranked around the middle of the other fantasy and isekai which is its correct ranking imo. This is coming from me who read the WN/LN/Manga versions of the story.

I don't think this poll went how OP expected lol

Of course re zero is better, even with its own flaws (mostly from being chained to the isekai genre).

OP has no expectations, I was just curious. The coarse result of 40% "better or equal", 50% "worse" and 10% "don't know" is actually more in favor of SH than I expected, and it's stable in that proportion almost from the start, which means I don't think it's manipulated.

Though both Isekai Re:Zero and Shield Hero seem way vastly different to compare that well with one another.

I will say that at least Shield Hero didn't have a protagonist that was trash for about 90% of the show with few redeeming episodes.
Touch me, you filthy casual~

"... better than Re:Zero. (your vote)"

I don't like ReZero's characters a lot. I also don't like time travel theme.

that's ISEKAI COMMON SENSE for you

first arc show their despair and struggles, then they learned to become stronger, it back to generic harem fantasy setting.

I have no complaints. At least, there are anime for me to watch. hehe

"...worse than Re:zero - 55%"
It was 50% before and its still increasing lol. I'm sure the % would've been even higher by now except for the fact that SH is a very recent anime.
But yeah, SH became kinda boring after ep 4. Ep25 was okay but the episodes in between were meh at best.

1. Juuni Kokuki
2. Digimon Adventure
3. Re:Zero
4. Overlord
5. KonoSuba
6. Tensei Shitara
7. Youjo Senki
7. NGNL
8. Shield Hero
9. Log Horizon

Being able to understand and analyze deep social message from anime does not make you an intellectual person. You being able to understand deep Chinese cartoon does not make you more intellectual than people who enjoy harem. Want to prove yourself to be an intellectual or smart person, get a PhD, excel in academy etc.

Have you heard of Twelve Kingdoms? It's an Isekai but way better. I never watched it myself but I got recommended for it and heard it is pretty good.

Haven't watched it either, but this is what a experienced MAL-friend and fellow fantasy lover recommended for the epic/high fantasy genre in anime.

"Twelve Kingdoms" (Juuni Kokuki) is fairly long, but it ends abruptly without conclusion or sequel, while the arcs get weaker towards the end. However, the first 13 episodes arc is about the best high fantasy anime has to offer. So watch 13 and drop the rest.

Another frequently recommended high fantasy anime which is self-contained and a 26 episodes long is "Guardian of the Spirit" (Seirei no Moribito). He said it's only slightly inferior to Twelve Kingdoms.

Oh thanks for the warning , it would be i waste of time to watch 45 episodes for an opened ending .
I will avoid this one .

About seirie no moribito it's sound like a good anime . maybe i'll watch it if i have time

Comparing sheild hero with re zero honestly it an insult to even compare re zero with sheild hero. Re zero outclasses sheild hero in every category and never loses its quality. Its not some generic isekai and has tgriller with fantasy. And people who think subaru can just fix e everything dont really know alot about him He dies everytime and his death is not decent in any way. He had mental damage as well. He was onece eaten alive as for the annoying part he had a psychological problem which is revealed now It has mystery and you cant predict the show. Frankly its a million times better then sheild heroand i have read the novels(sheild hero) upto13 volumes. And dropped it. The story just keeps On getting worse. Re zero improves with every arc. Re zero has better characters much much better female cast who does nt fall for the mc with out a reason theydo but not like the way its potrayed sheild hero is plain simple and the way they bested glass was sdisappointing
