.hack wasn't a death game.

I don't classify either as an isekai as it was just an MMO on a server on earth.
I see, although they are so similar I don't honestly see any difference tbh, either way you are in another world. I guess the death game element just adds a bit more drama.

When it comes to Isekais, the best one I've watched is probably The Vision of Escaflowne.

I've watched a lot of Isekai and the reason I love it is because I think the concept is great and it can have dozens of storylines. Sure, concepts would be similar between shows, but there's always something there for me to enjoy - unless it's Master of Ragnarok.

Here's my list of Isekai titles that I have watched thus far:
Reincarnated Isekai:
  • KonoSuba: God's Blessing on This Wonderful World!
  • Saga of Tanya the Evil
  • That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime
  • Wise Man's Grandchild
Reverse Isekai:
  • Cop Craft
  • The Devil is a Part-Timer!
  • Re:CREATORS
Transported Isekai:
  • Arifureta: From Commonplace to World's Strongest
  • Cautious Hero: The Hero Is Overpowered but Overly Cautious
  • Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody
  • Demon Lord, Retry?
  • Drifters
  • Escaflowne: A Girl in Gaea
  • GATE
  • Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash
  • How Not to Summon a Demon Lord
  • Isekai Cheat Magician
  • Isekai Quartet
  • Kemono Michi: Rise Up
  • The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar
  • No Game No Life
  • OVERLORD
  • Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-
  • The Rising of the Shield Hero
  • Spirited Away
  • Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar
  • The Vision of Escaflowne
  • Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun
  • YU-NO: A Girl Who Chants Love at the Bound of This World
Video Game Isekai:
  • Do You Love Your Mom and Her Two-Hit Multi-Target Attacks?
  • Sword Art Online

I thought Tilarna was an alien, so from another world that's fantasy based yes, but one from our universe. Isekai, to my mind, a fantasy place that don't exist in our universe.

Synopsis mentions a hyperspace gate:
Fifteen years ago, a hyperspace gate appeared in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, connecting Earth to a strange world filled with fairies and monsters.
Ones off your list that I forgot off my list the other day is Drifters, Spirited Away (although I think I was talking about series) and the concealed one (plus it's hentai predecessor, for you know, research purposes 😏). Also talking of movies The Boy and the Beast has elements of it, but I can't remember if that's a spoiler or not.

Yeah I was quite loose on COP CRAFT but hey, it was a decent series. I actually almost put BOFURI as Video Game Isekai lol

BOFURI, I guess, doesn't have the trapped element of the original SAO arc and Alicization and .hack//SIGN which is also on my list.

I just remembered another, which I dropped, but IIRC was a transported isekai and that's Conception.
