BOFURI: I Don't Want to Get Hurt, so I'll Max Out My Defense (anime);

Hard not to be biased, since I am a huge fan of VR and MMOs. I like how this show depicts many of the social interactions I witnessed in old school MMOs, like Ultima Online or Tibia. There's basically no plot, it just follows the game-life of this OP player. It's full of laughing material. It's really easy to enjoy it for what it is.

Ocean Waves (film); It's not easy to explain why is so enjoyable. I think Studio Ghibli did a great work animating the novel. The world and characters feel so real. It's loaded with nostalgia, as well.

Sword Art Online: Alicization - War of Underworld (anime); Watch it, only if you are a fan of the series already. That's it, oh, good visuals!

Ni no Kuni (film); Beautiful ghibli-like visuals and soundtrack by Joe Hisaishi. The plot is entertaining but, somehow, some aspects feel a bit bland and underdeveloped. I haven't played any of the games, so I might be missing something.

I would still recommend to anyone looking for a different twist in the Isekai genre.

Higurashi When They Cry (anime); didn't seem like a good show at first but, since I have a soft spot for horror stories, I kept watching it. To my surprise, the way it tells the same stories from different characters POV, and how everything starts connecting and making sense as you learn more about the characters, was actually quite interesting and entertaining.

Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn (OVA); a great example of how rich the Gundam universe is. Excellent visuals, characters and plot.

Vinland Saga (anime); great visuals, epic battles, characters that actually develop over time. Definitely a must watch.

@codewiz have you watched Mugen no Juunin: Immortal yet?

Kimetsu no Yaiba (first arc); the show you should be watching if you enjoy shōnen anime. It's a lot of fun, has GREAT animations and fighting scenes. Can't wait for the movie!

Made in Abyss (anime); an incredibly atmospheric and brutal adventure. Don't get fooled by the characters visual style, each of these was crafted with care. Can't wait for its continuation in 2020.

The Sacred Blacksmith (anime), had, initially, a few interesting characters and a promising plot but, sadly, it wasn't developed any further or properly.

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin Advent of the Red Comet, is a great re-re-adaptation 👏 👏 👏 The story never gets old and I loved the opening and ending themes.

7 Seeds (anime), I love the characters and the plot. Finally, a Netflix-sponsored show that captures the viewer and doesn't feel like made-out-of a template. I am crossing fingers for a second season.

P.S. I suspect the Survival genre could be the next Isekai.

Granblue Fantasy The Animation, a few outstanding action scenes, beautiful visuals but, the plot seems a bit generic plus, little to none characters progression. Still, looking forward to Session 2.

Chaos;Head, a somewhat satisfying
show. I wish they had used a darker tone in their visuals and didn't rush the story as much. It seems the original video game was better received.;He

Stranger Things (Season 3), is just disappointing. It feels like they couldn't elaborate more on the core story to get to 8 episodes, so they filled it with fan-service soap opera.

Dark (season 2), outstanding acting , atmosphere and scenes. The plot is superb, well, if you can understand it :)

One-Punch Man (season 2), weak season finale but, overall, this show is comedy gold. Outstanding fight scenes. Saitama's "deus ex machina" status does not get old.
