isekai anime with OP MC

One day a 25-year-old Japanese salaryman who is just downright exhausted from his everyday stressful life ends up falling asleep while doing work, but instead of just a nap, he wakes up as the son of a noble family. However, this noble family is quite unusual. They don’t have many resources to make ends meet and the protagonist isn’t their first son. He isn’t their second son either.

He’s their youngest one of them all. In other words, he’s their eighth son. That’s why the story starts off in a pretty awkward manner for the protagonist, who’s now a six-year-old boy born in a noble family that can barely even make ends meet.

03. Isekai maou to Shoukan Shoujo no Dorei Majutsu

isekai anime with OP MC

How Not to Summon a Demon Lord is a fascinating series, while the first season wasn’t the strongest start that I’ve personally seen in anime. The second season ups the stakes, ups the action, and ups the quality. It follows Takuma Sakamoto, an incredibly terrifying player in a massively multiplayer online RPG called Cross Reverie.

He’s the best at this game and he has no shame in crushing noobs to the actual abyss. When he’s randomly teleported into the world of the game as his in-game character Diablo. Takuma sees this as an opportunity to make his dreams of becoming the character he played a reality. The result is a wonderful anime all about Takuma’s overpowered abilities.

A ton of harem fan service and an exciting new season that fixes all the mistakes of the previous season. Ten episodes are out so far and you should definitely catch up with it because this anime is a hype train that everyone should be on board with.

However, he does gain some help from Tsukuyomi, granting Makoto his blessing and telling him to live freely as he sees fit.

Makoto might not have that many abilities, but he’s got a virtually never-ending supply of mana that he puts to use. Thanks to the weapons and items crafted by the drawers. Including his ring in which he stores energy and the bow that transforms his unsurmountable amounts of mana into magical energy that he can blast from the bow making him pretty powerful.
