Isekai (Japanese: 異世界, transl. "different world") is a genre of Japanese manga, anime, light novel, video game, etc. It has character(s) who go into a different world via rebirth. Whether that method is death, or randomly getting teleported is up to the writer.

Anime that are regarded as Isekai include Re:Zero − Starting Life in Another World, That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, Overlord, No Game No Life, Log Horizon, etc.

There is some debate as to whether some anime such as Sword Art Online, is Isekai as while the protagonist go into a virtual world and eventually get out.
