In The Heretical Last Boss Queen, Princess Ivy embodies the screw the prophecy attitude.

What if you were reincarnated, not as a powerful warrior or a charming prince, but as a lowly spider in a dangerous dungeon? That’s the hilarious and heartwarming premise of So I’m a Spider, So What? Our protagonist, Kumoko, starts at the bottom of the food chain, but with her wit and surprisingly potent spider abilities, she claws her way up. She eventually enters into her villain era with her evolution.  If you’re looking for an isekai that’s both brutal and strangely heartwarming, then give “So I’m a Spider, So What?” a spin.

3. Overlord

Ainz Ooal Gown, the skeletal ruler of a tomb filled with monstrous denizens, might seem like a stereotypical villain. But Overlord anime has more to tell, exploring the challenges of ruling a vast empire and maintaining order among diverse and often chaotic subjects. While Ainz Ooal Gown’s motivations are kept a secret, his undead perspective and strategic brilliance offer a fresh take on the isekai anime genre.

2. How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord

If you prefer your isekai with a healthy dose of comedy, then How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord is for you. Summoned as a powerful demon lord by two clueless girls, Sakamoto Takahiro, an ordinary guy thrust into an extraordinary situation, decides to play along and fake his villainous persona. What follows is a hilarious adventure filled with misunderstandings and a harem of eccentric characters vying for Takahiro’s attention. Despite being a Harem anime itself, this anime often pokes fun at isekai tropes while offering charming characters and plenty of laughs.
