Top 5 Isekai Anime To Stream Right Now In The UK!

Previously we’ve looked at comedy and action series streaming on Funimation, but this time we’re diving into the world of Isekai!

The Rising of Shield Hero

Naofumi Itatani and three others are summoned to another world to become Cardinal Heroes, where they will protect this world from invading monsters. Whilst the three others all receive offensive weaponry, Naofumi is granted only a shield. He struggles to gain allies whilst the other three all flourish, and the one ally he gains betrays him. He might be able to physically defend himself, but what good can he really do in this world? Watch as Naofumi rises as the Shield Hero.

Overlord

When the DMMORPG game YGGDRASIL closes after being active for 12 years, guild leader Momonga stays logged in until the very end. Instead of being forcibly locked out, however, he finds himself stuck in YGGDRASIL with no way out. In fact, it now seems like the game has become its own reality entirely. Due to his combat knowledge, high stats, and high-level armour, Momonga sets out to solve his own mystery, and to find others who are trapped.

That Time I Was Reincarnated as a Slime

You might feel like you have hit the opposite of a jackpot if you happened to be reincarnated as a slime, but Satoru Mikami does his best with his new slimy form. Realising that his life before this was monotonous and that he had very little to look forward to, Satoru relishes the opportunity to live a brand-new life in a new world. It helps he is given some amazing skills to defend himself too!

Tanya and the Saga of Evil

When a Japanese businessman is murdered by an employee who he had fired, the cruel atheist finds himself face to face with a being claiming to be God. Criticising him for not having faith, he makes it so that the businessman is reborn as Tanya Degurechaff, and is tasked with progressively more difficult circumstances until they develop faith. However, Tanya relishes the opportunity to be ruthless and crushes all and any opposition that would dare go against her.

Re:Zero – Starting Life in Another World


Emilia, Rem or Ram? Yes, everyone has their favourite, but who will Subaru Natsuki fall in love with? A NEET who does little more than play video games, Subaru is suddenly summoned to another world, where he is able to reverse time each time he dies. As he finds himself in countless deadly situations, will Subaru be able to use this ability to protect the ones he loves?
