Three new Isekai animated series have been revealed by Crunchyroll; Tsukimichi, Seirei Gensouki and The best assassin in the world is reincarnated!
In the anime, “Isekai” is the term used to refer to an entire genre in which the main character is transported from or to an alternate universe.
The genre has been popular with fans around the world for several decades, but has seen a surge in series and attention over the past five years.
This week, Crunchyroll announced that three new Isekai anime will be released on their platform!
Tsukimichi: Moonlight Fantasy
This anime is an adaptation of the hit novel series from animation studio C2C and releases on July 7.e in Japan.
Tsukimichi tells the story of Makoto Misumi, an ordinary high school student who is suddenly summoned to another world to be a “hero”.
However, the Goddess of this New World does not accept him, throwing Makoto into this new world without his hero title.
Crunchyroll added the series to their Summer lineup, so expect this series to air simultaneously starting next week.
Seirei Gensouki: Chronicles of spirits
Spirit Chronicles is a wellness success story that originally started on a new user-generated website before being taken over by Hobby Japan.
The series is about two boys, Amakawa Haruto and Rio, who live in parallel worlds. Amakawa is a young man who died before being reunited with his childhood sweetheart, while Rio lives in the slums trying to get revenge on his murdered mother.
One day, the two switch bodies, leaving them both with a moral dilemma over how and why they can live in their new worlds.
The anime is slated for release in Japan on July 6e, with Crisp also adding this to the summer slate.
The world’s best assassin reincarnates in another world as an aristocrat
Arguably the most intriguing new series, The Worlds Finest Assassin is not due out until October 2021 as part of the Fall Slate.
The world’s greatest assassin is now an elderly man who wants to retire, but after his sudden death, he reincarnates in a magical kingdom as Lugh Tuatha Da.
Lugh hopes to live his life as a human being, but will his past life as an assassin help or hinder his journey through this new world?
