Anime Fantasy is a story in the form of an imaginary or delusional story that never occurs in real life.
Even though it looks the same as the Isekai anime, these two things are very different.
Because anime isekai only tells about the main character who enters or is summoned to another world.
Usually, Fantasy anime also tells a story beyond human reason, such as supernatural or superpower.
Here are Animagz’s 10 best Fantasy Anime recommendations you must watch.
10. Accel World
This first fantasy anime is very thick with fantasy stories and romance.
This anime tells Haruyuki Arita, a short and fat, high school student who is always bullied at school.

He also managed to achieve the highest score until one day. His score was suddenly surpassed by another player named Kuroyukihime, the beautiful girl at his school who is the Student Council’s vice president.
Amazed by Haruyuki’s hidden spirit, Kuroyukihime invited him to join or “accelerate” into a sophisticated virtual game called “Brain Burst.”
Here, the human brain’s work is linked together with AR (Augmented Reality) tools, which are accelerated to the highest speed level so that the time course in the real world can seem like it is stopped.
