the list of iskei anime that is kinda average not too bad but good enough to be watchable.
mostly are kinda trashy... some are good but did not make into the fav picks.

the compendium of isekai anime that people usually generalize to prove isekai anime are bad.

here listed are the animes that makes isekai anime to look bad.

watching the bottom tier of isekai anime purpose is to serve as reference for what is good and bad in the genre...

theres is much worst anime than what this present... this list are the animes that although not the best but still watchable.
Isekai Cheat Magician
TV, 2019, 12 eps Me:- Author:7
While highly criticized, it's not the most amazing anime out there. Yet, I still don't understand why it holds the title of the most hated isekai anime.

I don't think this anime is as bad as people make it out to be. It received a horribly low score on the site, but not even the king of the worst has sunk that low yet.

if you are looking into a more refined version of this anime should watch seirei gensouki, with this anime they really extended and make a much better story than this one, wasn't bad but a lot of people felt that it was a bit lacking but with seirei gensouki in effect they packed more stuff in the same length of time.

Isekai Shoukan wa Nidome desu

Summoned to Another World for a Second Time

Isekai Shoukan wa Nidome desu
TV, 2023, 12 eps Me:- Author:5
This anime currently holds the title for the worst isekai, I suppose... Now, let's dive into the details.

Interestingly, it scored higher than Isekai Cheat Magician, even though it's much worse. Strangely enough, I haven't heard many complaints about it. This anime could very well be what gives isekai a bad name. I'm not entirely sure if it's from the same creators as Fruit of Evolution, but it definitely carries the same vibe and possesses a similarly poor story.

The only aspect that somewhat fits the isekai mold is the presence of a harem, but even that falls short as the harem in this anime lacks attractiveness. Overall, there are hardly any redeeming qualities in this anime. It deserves an F in the harem department, among other aspects. this anime is kinda bad but well for this type of story a better watch should be iseleve.

nice harem anime. somehow although doesnt seem that bad. still watching otheres isekai they should try to improve more on quality.
Conception
TV, 2018, 12 eps Me:- Author:6
Okay, this anime is actually the worst-rated isekai of all time. I thought 'Isekai Cheat Magician' was already at the bottom, but this anime did worse.

While the animation in this anime is good and the character designs for the girls are well-drawn, that's about the only positive aspect. So, my preliminary conclusion about what dragged this anime to the bottom tier is probably the story.

This anime relies on lewd jokes, but it fails at delivering them. The anime pretends to be ecchi without truly being ecchi, and the lewd jokes don't connect. As a result, this anime received a low score for failing to deliver effective lewd jokes; it tries to be very direct and shameless, but the humor falls flat. Maybe a better example to watch would be 'Futoku no Guild,' which is direct and ecchi while actually being funny.

As for the art style, a better choice to watch would be 'Re:ZERO'.
Isekai One Turn Kill Neesan: Ane Douhan no Isekai Seikatsu Hajimemashita
TV, 2023, 12 eps Me:- Author:6
another anime that gives isekai anime a bad name... pretty boring but at least is much better than that of summoned for second time.

another anime that failed at delivering lewd jokes, seems that delivering lewd jokes is a pretty hard job... lewd jokes that supposed to be funny don't punch hard enough. the majority of the anime has been badly scored for being bad at delivering lewd jokes. although some has mediocre art style or story.

this anime is sibling to Conception both anime use the same jokes although both are bad this one is a bit better.

Shinka no Mi: Shiranai Uchi ni Kachigumi Jinsei

The Fruit of Evolution: Before I Knew It, My Life Had It Made

Shinka no Mi: Shiranai Uchi ni Kachigumi Jinsei
TV, 2021, 12 eps Me:- Author:6
The jokes in this anime are kind of repetitive, and both the art style and story border on being similar to other bottom-tier isekai anime. The humor relies heavily on absurdity and some weird slapstick comedy.

for this anime the best version to watch is iseleve

Shin Shinka no Mi: Shiranai Uchi ni Kachigumi Jinsei

The Fruit of Evolution: Before I Knew It, My Life Had It Made Season 2

Shin Shinka no Mi: Shiranai Uchi ni Kachigumi Jinsei
TV, 2023, 12 eps Me:- Author:6
I'm not sure why there are suddenly so many isekai anime taking inspiration from this. Although some adaptations with a similar structure have made improvements, others have fared worse. By no means is this the best or most spectacular isekai ever made, but it does have producers willing to explore this type of story. As for the harem in this anime, it seems passable.

just repeating the samething as both are a sequel but if you like this anime a more refined version of these types of narratives can be found with iseleve

this one is not that bad but is kinda average.

Fantasy Bishoujo Juniku Ojisan to

Life with an Ordinary Guy who Reincarnated into a Total Fantasy Knockout

Fantasy Bishoujo Juniku Ojisan to
TV, 2022, 12 eps Me:- Author:-
The art style and animation in this anime are decent, but since I haven't finished watching it yet, I can't make a complete judgment. While the jokes seem relatively decent, they aren't as funny in reality. The anime is a parody of isekai, so it's not meant to be taken seriously, but in my opinion, it didn't perform particularly well in that regard. That's why it falls into the average tier of isekai anime for me. I would give it a grade of maybe a C. The score given by others doesn't match what I had intended, so I will score it once I finish watching it.

Shokei Shoujo no Virgin Road

The Executioner and Her Way of Life

Shokei Shoujo no Virgin Road
TV, 2022, 12 eps Me:- Author:8
The anime isn't bad, but it falls somewhere in the average range. It features very good quality, a nice art style, and excellent animation, but there's something missing that prevents it from being great. Perhaps it's the story.

I believe what holds this anime back is the story or something else—I'm not quite sure yet. Although at the end of the 12 episodes, the story did not conclude, suggesting a second season to make it more interesting. The first season seems to be just the start, and it needs more episodes to develop into something intriguing. The female characters are attractive. Additionally, some of the villains are portrayed as crazy children, teenagers, mature women, and some old hags. In theory, this combination should work fine...

Jitsu wa Ore, Saikyou deshita?

Jitsu wa Ore, Saikyou deshita?
TV, 2023, 12 eps Me:- Author:7
another isekai anime in which the gods make the mc to be op. it takes a lot of different elements from various isekai made into a comedic isekai.

some anime that use the idea of slacking and take things easy while being op.

the best in the genre is Eminence in Shadow

This anime was made as a comedy and wasn't meant to be taken very seriously. However, it still has decent animation and art style, which is certainly better than the worse performers out there.

Ironically, it doesn't need a second life to be average... it is already average. Most complain about the MC being mostly annoying because of trying too hard to be average from the outstanding joke routine. Anyways, it can be annoying to some people, but have some patience and enjoy it. It has some nice characters, but maybe because the jokes get too repetitive after a while... However, it is relatively decent, so don't sweat it.

TV, 2022, 12 eps Me:- Author:7
It has some potential, but the ending feels forced, and the jokes aren't that great, despite the clear effort put into trying to be funny.

this anime didnt get a bad score but, but still although the jokes seems funny I didn't laugh, it suffer from jokes delivery too.

and the jokes are too forced.

I think hamefura is a better option to watch but I think after watching hamefura everyones tries to look for something with the same impact.

TV, 2023, 12 eps Me:- Author:5
Although this anime seems to have received decent ratings, it falls into the bottom tier for me. The fact that it managed to score almost a 7 is a mystery. Personally, I found it quite boring to watch.

a better predecessor to this type of anime i highly recommend to also check out dungeons black company

Kaminaki Sekai no Kamisama Katsudou

KamiKatsu: Working for God in a Godless World

Kaminaki Sekai no Kamisama Katsudou
TV, 2023, 12 eps Me:- Author:6
This anime is borderline mediocre, but it is salvageable. However, it has a weird art style that is sometimes inconsistent. Nonetheless, it does feature almost funny jokes here and there, which save it from being outright dropped.

a better alternative to this anime is KONOSUBA and the black summoner.

Isekai de Cheat Skill wo Te ni Shita Ore wa, Genjitsu Sekai wo mo Musou Suru: Level Up wa Jinsei wo Kaeta

I Got a Cheat Skill in Another World and Became Unrivaled in The Real World, Too

Isekai de Cheat Skill wo Te ni Shita Ore wa, Genjitsu Sekai wo mo Musou Suru: Level Up wa Jinsei wo Kaeta
TV, 2023, 13 eps Me:- Author:8
The transformation of the ugliest dude into the most sought-after Kind-Hearted Chad, who rescues damsels in distress, sets the stage for a story that rivals any shoujo anime you've ever seen. While it may share some similarities, this story takes a unique perspective – it unfolds from the viewpoint of Prince Charming. Whenever a girl finds herself in trouble, our kind-hearted Chad is there to save the day, delivering a romance that surpasses even the most beloved Disney movies.

This story is way more magical than the classic tales of a frog turned into a prince with a kiss or an ugly duckling's transformation into a swan. what about the journey of a fat, unattractive guy turning into the most amazing Chad ever?

It draws parallels with 'Fruit of Evolution,' another work by the same author, yet distinguishes itself with a commendable art style, a step above many lower-tier isekai series. While it may lack the depth of a truly captivating storyline, it manages to keep the audience engaged. The anime avoids being relegated to the bottom tier largely due to its appealing art style. Although the story may seem somewhat underwhelming, it still offers more entertainment value than most series in its genre. The harem aspect receives high marks, as the female characters in this anime are among the most attractive in the same genre.

ok the production quality in terms of art and animation is good, no complaint there but the characters design compared to others anime and some average tier isekai is on the good side. this one in a sense wanted to follow the foot step like isekai pharmacy with pharmacy even using the same strategy of making names related to the profession like pastry in here and pharma in isekai pharmacy. this anime did good in following a excellent role model because of that that avoided it to fall rock bottom, in execution it lacked a bit, although it could have gotten better score if it was going to match the same quality as isekai pharmacy.


check out isekai pharmacy if like anime that uses puns for the characters naming scheme.Dragon ball but for isekai check out isekai pharmacy.

very average story of a healer. this anime is made as a comedy and not to be taken seriously as the story goes by is a about a dude doing good deeds in contrast of people taking advantage for being healers. although the anime is somewhat average still entertaining to watch.

we are at currently at half of the episodes in moment of watching this anime. so I wanted to add a recommendation for a more serious story as I said before this anime is more of a comedy.

some anime with a bit more serious tones if you like this one also check on:
The Faraway Paladin; Skeleton Knight in Another World; The 8th son? Are you kidding me?.

Level 1 dakedo Unique Skill de Saikyou desu
TV, 2023, 12 eps Me:- Author:6
The story is pretty average – adventurers delving into dungeons to collect various items. It's still quite boring at the moment, but I hope it will become more interesting to avoid falling too short. The creators have managed to maintain a level of quality that keeps it from being below average.

For this type of anime, there are a lot of well-established predecessors. I hope this isn't a sign of decline for these kinds of stories.

for this anime there's a better and more spicy anime to watch: isekai harem

This anime is indeed underrated; it boasts good quality and offers a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

the story revolves around a tale of ingenious teenagers who crash-landed into another world. As they navigate this unfamiliar world, each character distinct expertise contributes to solving challenges faced by the village they now inhabit. The storyline introduces a diverse array of roles: politician, merchant, inventor, ninja, samurai, surgeon, and illusionist. This narrative feels like a blend from 'The Genius that Saved a Kingdom' and 'Dungeon Black Company,' with a sprinkle of 'Gate.' that create an engaging and enjoyable viewing experience.

In my opinion, this anime deserves better than the harsh criticism it has garnered.

the one with a bit more serious tone should check out: The Genius that Saved a Kingdom

Isekai wa Smartphone to Tomo ni.

In Another World With My Smartphone

Isekai wa Smartphone to Tomo ni.
TV, 2017, 12 eps Me:- Author:7
I included this anime on the list because the score is pretty low but I think still deserve a little bit better. at least this anime was able to get a second season. the harem is good and is a light hearted to watch. just some clever ideas but can be considered trashy in some sense comparing to other anime.

because of the large amount of harem living a happy life together I guess I will recommend Isekai Harem and nonbiri Nouka if you are looking for better alternative.
