Actually good isekai/reincarnation list

Actually good isekai/reincarnation list
After reading like dozens, maybe even hundreds of isekai(more like fantasy), these are some of the good one that aren't that well known, or at least they got unique theme. Ranging from decent to godly one. If you got reccomendation, please put in the comment (I NEED MORE ISEKAI TO READ, or just magic fantasy stuff in general). And sorry I don't read Manhwa or Manhua stuff.

The ranking doesn't really matter since some of the better stuff might get pushed down as I add stuff. Though I'll try to keep the better stuff at the top.

Really really good, probably one of the best game isekai? Unique otome-game storyline, unique MC, and Yuri. Multiple reincarnator spice the story up.

One of the better "misunderstanding" novel. Personally like this one because it's space-isekai gdi.

HOLY, this is like a hidden diamond, a one of a kind novel. It's definitely not a story for everyone, you either love it or hate it. It's really serious, it's realistic, it's cruel and grim, AND I LOVE IT. Let me quote the author's note.... more>>

    I read Clearing an Isekai with the Zero-believers Goddess because of this list. No regrets. I have read a bunch of the more famous light novel reincarnation type stuff, but I absolutely loved this series. Absolute blast to read. Especially when you read a lot of your run of the mill isekai stories

    Try Arifureta, starts out cliche but then suddenly character development. Good motives for the characters and has an actual ending.

      Already read it but because of the horrible anime adaptation, kind of forgot it's one of the best isekai I've read. Thanks for reminding me~

    Try "Reincarnated as an Emperor ~ Will the Emperor at Birth Survive?"

    It has a *really* preservering hero and best girl.

    Add "Fake Saint of the Year". Really great isekai.

    Very good comedy, actual plot, and when it hits, it hits like a truck. Read the WN. You wont regret it.

    Also, are you intentionally not including novels like overlord and konosuba? The popular ones?

      Yeah I intentionally don't add the top dog like overlord, konosuba, or mushoku tensei because people already know it. And there are lot of actually good isekai that makes me wonder "why this garbage got animated when there are better isekai"
