Isekai and rom-com are ubiquitous, and most fans who are admirers of this genre would agree it’s a match made in heaven.
Making relationships with a touch of humour while reincarnating into another world has seemed to be the recipe for success for many series in this genre.
Isekai in itself offers various pairings with many subgenres and amidst many such novelties is also the gaming-based Otome isekai, wherein characters are summoned into a game and have to survive by leveling up and forming teams.
Additionally, otome refers to the video game genre, reverse-harem dating sim games (usually visual novels) with various male love interests.
Otome Isekai series like I’m the Villainess So I’m Taming the Final Boss, Overlord, La Storia Della Arcana Famiglia, Prince of Stride: Alternative, and Code: Realize are a few popular series that employ this novelty and have been massive fan favorites.
