The Fall 2021 anime season is around the corner and many fans are already looking for new titles to watch. The past few anime seasons have been good to isekai fans, with titles such as That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime as well as works that completely change what we consider a given about the genre, such as Sonny Boy. If you can't wait to know which isekai to watch out for in Fall 2021, here's a list for you.

1) Mushokou Tensei Part 2

Arguably the most anticipated isekai anime of the Fall 2021 season, Mushoku Tensei Part 2 will be the second cour of the beloved anime that first aired on Funimation and Hulu during Winter 2021.

Mushoku Tensei, also known as Jobless Reincarnation follows a man from our world who used to lead a relatively purposeless life before being reincarnated in a magical world, as a child named Rudeus Greyrat.

At the end of the first cour, Rudeus and his cousin Eris had been transported far from their home and everyone they knew and had to make ends meet as adventures in their RPG-like world.

The manga and light novel of Mushoku Tensei follow Rudeus for the entirety of his life, so we expect that the second cour will at least follow him until he's an adolescent or young adult.

While the anime has been a bit controversial due to the main characters' misconduct, it is otherwise considered a must-watch, as its magical world makes it stand out in the world of isekai.

2) The World's Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in Another World as an Aristocrat

True to the isekai light novel's fashion of long, long titles, The World's Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in Another World as an Aristocrat brings a twist to the usual isekai plot; many characters who get isekai'ed into a magical world tend to have lived dull or mundane lives before. Instead, our hero here is the finest assassin on earth – so he already led an eventful, tumultuous life before dying.

When he outlives his usefulness, however, his employers, whom he had let rule over his life, kill him. He then gets reincarnated into a magical world as a noble. Now our hero has the chance to do better in life, but his assassin's skills will still prove useful to him, as he must eliminate an all-powerful hero who is going to destroy the world unless stopped.

3)Restaurant to Another World Season 2

When an anime, isekai or otherwise, gets a second season, you know it's one to watch out for. Restaurant to Another World is a fantasy anime about a seemingly ordinary restaurant in Tokyo. In fact, it's anything but.

On Saturdays, when the restaurant is supposed to be closed, its doors open to a different type of clientele, namely residents of other worlds – you can say it's a reverse isekai, in a sense. The chef, known as Master, will do anything in his power to keep his otherworldly customers satisfied so that they can keep visiting this restaurant for as long as possible.

4)The Evolution Fruit: Conquering Life Unknowingly

Another isekai concept, whereby the main character, Seiichi, who has been bullied his entire life, is told that he and his classmates will be transported to a different world. As usual, Seiichi is excluded from student groups, and therefore finds himself transported alone, in a different location, not unlike Kumoko in So I'm a Spider, So What?

In usual isekai fashion, Seiichi will become a champion in this new world, which is full of opportunities his past self couldn't have imagined.

5)Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon Season 2

Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon is a sequel to Inuyasha, the epitome of isekai for a whole generation of fans. The series focuses on Rin and Sessomaru's twin daughters, Towa and Setsuna. After being caught up in a forest fire, the former passes to our own world through a portal and grows up as a human girl.

Years later, the sisters reunite, but Setsuna has no recollection of Towa, and the two embark on a journey to recover Setsuna's memories.

As the reincarnation aspect of the isekai genre has been a bit overdone lately, it will be good to go back into the familiar world of Inuyasha this fall.
