  • Sword Art Online should be an obvious choice since it's a very popular video game and fantasy themed anime, but we couldn't complete this list without it! Kazuto Kirigaya, who goes by Kirito thought he was just playing the new massive role-playing game, Sword Art Online. But when he and thousands of other players get trapped into the game with no way to log out, all chaos turns loose.

    While goblins are known for being small creatures with a weak reputation, those who are wise will notice that they're a massive threat. Wild and unpredictable, it's surprising so many adventurers overlook these beings, but the fifteen-year-old Priestess has seen exactly what these monsters can do. When she joined a naive group of adventurers, they were ruthlessly ambushed by a group of goblins. Before she could confront her fate, the Goblin Slayer was able to save her with ease. Now she travels beside him, hoping to vanquish these evil creatures from the world for good. This is certainly a darker anime than Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon, but if you're looking for a fantasy-themed anime it's an excellent followup.
