This 2020 anime has all the characteristics of an isekai, but it is hardly really referred to as one.

Technically it would be seen as a reverse isekai if anything, where instead of the main character going to a fantasy world, other characters come the real world where the main character is in.

The basic plot is that a mobile game based on fighting fantasy opponents, suddenly manifests the opponents in the real world.

Darwin’s Game was released in January and finished airing at the end of March 2020.

  1. You can tell by this list, how much this person doesn’t care about his work. Manga and manhwa are totally different beings, just like how manga isn’t considered comics and anime’s aren’t considered cartoons. Numbers 15 and 16 are considered manhwa’s and are produced in Korea, they are artistically different and read differently from manga. I mean unless you hate looking for the correct info or are just plain dumb…. like why … such a disgrace.

  2. Some of the them are not released, some of them are not isekai, some of them are not even anime and the this list is published as ‘best isekai anime series of 2020 to watch’. Ugh some of my brain cells died reading this list.

  3. This has got to be the worst list I have ever seen. “Best Isekai Anime” literallyu has manga and multiple non Isekai listed…. Good lord…..

  4. I feel like it’s worth mentioning that BOFURI does not have the characters trapped in their game. They simply don’t want to die in the game i.e. like any other person playing any game. There are plenty of scenes where they’re irl and quite an amusing one where Maple’s reflexes from the game have carried over to the real world making her look silly and clutsy. A good anime I would say and in my top 10 for the year but an isekai I think not.
