Isekais are fun in and of themselves, but recently, reverse-isekais, where mythical creatures from another world come into Earth and live everyday lives among humans, are gaining even more traction. With the surging popularity in the reverse-isekai genre, the studio SILVER LINK gave us Jahy-sama wa Kujikenai! This year (2021). It was adapted from a manga with the same name, authored by Wakame Konbu. In this article, we’ll be taking a look at the best animes similar to Jahy-sama wa Kujikenai!

She will have to bid her time in order to collect mystic gems that will finally allow her to restore her own power and the Demon Realm. If you’re looking for more reverse-isekai anime or just some anime with a cute loli character like Jahy, this list has got you covered.
