If you’ve seen Re:Zero, you’ll know that it’s a narrative of Subaru Natsuki, who is unexpectedly transported to a fantasy-like realm. He is slain shortly after arriving while attempting to assist Emilia, a teenage half-elf he befriends who is a candidate for the next monarch of the Kingdom of Lugunica, only to be resurrected some hours later.
Subaru discovers that he has the option to convert back the time after death, after dying several times. Perhaps because they challenge reality, these fascinating thoughts attracted viewers. Take a glance at some additional anime series that relate to science fiction, immortality, and also being transported to another realm.
10 Best Anime Shows Similar To Re:Zero
Here is a list of 10 of the best anime series that you will appreciate as much as Re:Zero.
1. Grimgar Of The Fantasy And Ash (1 Season)
The story starts with a troop of inexperienced adventurers combating goblins in the woods. This group of strangers are offered no choice but to accept the only compensated profession in this game-like environment—that of a Reserve Army soldier—and remove everything that undermines the peace in their new world, Grimgar.
However, there is one stipulation: they cannot be reborn. Once you’ve died, you’ve died forever. This is a 12-episode miniseries that you will enjoy going through, despite the fact that the concept is diametrically opposed to Re:Zero.
2. No Game, No Life (1 Season)
Another mini-series to binge-watch is definitely No Game, No Life. The story depicts a group of human players who are attempting to steal the throne of the god of games by defeating him at a series of board-games. Two siblings have earned the nickname “mysterious blank gamer” because they never fill up their names.
The blank players are regarded as the best players in the universe, as they have never lost in any tournament. When the siblings receive a weird email, they are moved to another realm. There will be no wars, no stealing, and no violence, according to the God of this world. Instead, everything will be decided by a game, any game.
3. GATE (2 Seasons)
