Slow Life isekai anime is a genre that has been getting a lot of attention lately. As the name suggests, the main characters of these shows want to lead a slow, blissful, and peaceful life. This is basically a slice of life anime, except in an isekai setting.
These slice of life isekai anime have been released more and more over the past couple of years. As a fan of this genre, I’ve decided to write an article about my top 10 slow life isekai anime that I adored!
10. ‘Kemono Michi’
Kemono Michi follows the story of a pro wrestler who gets summoned into a fantasy world. He was supposed to become a “hero” and defeat the demon lord. However, he had something else in mind.
The main character is overly obsessed with animals and beasts. So he couldn’t entertain the thought of slaying demon beasts. Therefore, he ignores the request from the princess and continues to gather demon beasts, hoping to open a pet store.
9. ‘Banished from the Hero’s Party, I Decided to Live a Quiet Life in the Countryside’
As the name of this anime suggests, the main character of this anime gets banished from the hero’s party. One of his colleagues complains that he is too weak to be in the hero’s party and continues to trash him. Understanding his own limitations, the MC accepts leaving the party.
Thus ended his days of adventure. However, a new life awaited him. He decided to live in a village at the farthest end of the world, away from all the world’s activity.
He opens a drug store, helps the villagers out, and lives a slow life. But trouble comes his way, and he is forced to protect everything that he loves.

8. ‘Princess Connect Re:dive’
Princess connect Re:Dive has a very forgettable MC. The main character in this anime has no personality. He can’t even talk for the most part. However, that doesn’t stop this show from being a wholesome slice of life isekai anime.
The majority of this anime is about the characters eating delicious food and having fun. There are several underlying mysteries and evils. But in season 1 of Princess Connect Re:Dive is the perfect slow life anime!
7. ‘Cheat Pharmacist’s Slow Life: Making a Drugstore in Another World’
Reiji Kirio, a former corporate slave, awakens one day in a different world. He chooses to create a drugstore with the canine Noera and the ethereal Mina after realizing that he has superhuman pharmacological knowledge. There, he tends to the needs of all who come to the pharmacy, providing potions and the like.
6. ‘Restaurant to Another World’
Isekai Shokudou – The Dinner to Another Universe is a feel-good isekai anime with little in the way of narrative or plot, but it’s just what you need if you’re seeking a slow-paced, relaxing anime.
Once every seven days, a door to the popular Western restaurant, “Nekoya,” appears in various locations in the isekai world.
The people of the other world learn about this restaurant one by one and eventually become regular clients, savouring the pleasures of the modern world.
5. ‘My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!’
My Next Life As A Villainess is a rom-com isekai anime where the main character is a girl who mysteriously gets teleported inside her favorite dating sim game. The plot twist, though, is that she has reincarnated as the villainess of the game.
As a person who has played the game till the end, she knows the villainess is either going to die or live a horible life after a certain period of time. She is determined to live, so she starts taking actions to make sure she does not end up badly.
However, because of her personality, she actually becomes popular among a harem of boys and girls. Everyone is romantically interested in her, although she herself is blind to their love.
4. ‘The Bears Bear a Bare Kuma’ – Slow life Isekai anime with OP MC
The Bears Bear a Bare Kuma is another great slice of life isekai anime where the main character leads a slow life.
A super-rich teenage girl gets addicted to a VR game. As a reward for playing the game for a huge number of hours, she gets a special gift-bear equipment. This equipment set has the highest possible buffs.
What’s more, she gets to access a new world that other players have not experienced yet. However, she is not able to log out of the game either. She hated her reality anyway, so she didn’t care about that.
In this new world, she becomes instantly famous because of her cute bear costume and her overpowered abilities.
3. ‘I’ve Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level’
I was personally introduced to the slow life isekai anime genre by this anime. As the title says, the main character of this anime leads a super slow life for 300 years, killing slime for a living. She was originally an office worker who died of overwork. Because of that experience, she wanted to take it easy in her new life.
To her luck, she also turned out to be an immortal. Therefore, she takes it easy, living as she pleases without stressing herself. She meets new people, makes friends, helps people out and becomes a living legend in the town.
2. ‘Ascendance of a Bookworm’
Ascendance of a Bookworm might not be a best fit for the slow life isekai anime genre. Because there are some exciting events that happen in the later half of this anime. That said, the main character also leads a slow, peaceful life for the majority of the show.
The main character of this anime gets killed when a bookshelf falls over her. To her surprise, she woke up in a child’s body in another world.
This world is very behind in technology and doesn’t even have paper. As a book lover, she wanted to create books. The majority of the anime is about the main character trying to create a book. She also ends up starting a business selling her knowledge from her previous life.
This anime has another side filled with magic and fantasy, which only makes this show even more amazing.
1. ‘By the Grace of the Gods’
By the Grace of the Gods is the ultimate slow life isekai anime where the MC gets reincarnated into a fantasy world after being killed by overwork in his previous life.
After his death, he meets the gods and they reincarnate him in another world, all the while bringing unused mana from Earth to this fantasy world. Reincarnated as a child in this world, the main character spends 3 years alone in the woods, learning about this world and taming thousands of slime monsters.
One day, he meets and saves a member of the royal family and gets involved with the outside world. From there on, a beautiful story unfolds where the MC does tasks as an adventurer and starts his own business with the help of slime.
These were all the best slow life isekai anime that I loved! I can assure you that you’ll love these anime series if you are a fan of the slice of life and slow life genres. That’s it for this post. I hope you found something new to watch!
