6 Reborn as the Hero's Daughter! Time to Become the Hero Once More!

Leads Use Their Memories To Succeed In Their New Lives

  • Japanese Title: Eiyuu no Musume toshite Umarekawatta Eiyuu wa Futatabi Eiyuu wo Mezasu
  • Creators: Kaburagi Haruka and Kotodera Amane
  • Number of Chapters: 24

Up until his death, Reid had always wanted to be a hero. After dying during a battle with a demon, Reid is reborn as a baby girl to a legendary hero. This gives Reid the opportunity to achieve his dreams from his previous life. As he grows, he is more determined to be a hero this time around, since the chances are in his favor.

There is no telling if Tanya would have succeeded without the memories and experiences from her previous life. But it might be safe to assume that no nine-year-old girl would want to join the military at such a young age. Tanya and Reid both have dreams, and their previous lives serve as cheat codes for them.

5 Ride-On King

Quest For Power And The Need To Conquer

  • Japanese Title: N/A
  • Creator: Baba Yasushi
  • Number of Chapters: Still Publishing

Ride-On King tells the story of a powerful leader, Alexander Plutinov. He is loved by his people and has the need and desire to conquer all things that can be, whether it be humans, animals, nations, or whatnot. His mode of transportation clearly shows his need for conquest as he moves around on most animals. One unlucky day, this president finds himself under attack and faces defeat. He wakes up to find himself in another world, where magic and monsters exist. Plutinov cannot waste this opportunity and decides to conquer this world just like he did with Prusia.

Plutinov and Tanya are both goal-getters. Tanya joined the military with hopes of using her knowledge and experiences from her previous life to rise through the ranks, and she did just that. She became an unstoppable force, just like Plutinov in Prusia and the new world he finds himself in. In addition, they both find themselves in a world where magic exists, and they use it to their advantage.

4 Multi-Mind Mayhem

Overpowered With Knowledge

  • Japanese Title: Isekai Tensei Soudouki
  • Creator: Ryousen Takami
  • Chapters: Still publishing

Bard might look like an average boy, but he has three souls living inside him. It sounds a bit chaotic, but it really puts the name of the manga into perspective. Multi-Mind Mayhem revolves around Bard and the two other spirits living in him: an old samurai and a high school girl who is an otaku. An otaku is someone who is obsessed with anime and manga. With these people living in him, Bard has excessive knowledge, which he uses to conquer his world.

Tanya might be a child, but her level of knowledge makes her stand out and quickly rise through the ranks in the military. She uses her memories and knowledge as a Japanese salaryman to help lead her nation to victory. Another similarity between Saga Of Tanya The Evil and Multi-Mind Mayhem is that both protagonists find themselves in a world where magic exists.

3 Serial Killer Reincarnated In Another World

Both Protagonists Are Killers With Motives

  • Japanese Title: Serial Killer Isekai Ni Oritastu
  • Creator: Hiro and Hitotsubu Ichigo
  • Number of Chapters: Still Publishing

The main character of Serial Killer Reincarnated In Another World is a serial killer, just like the title implies. However, he does not derive joy from killing, and only kills because of the murderous thoughts and impulses he gets. When faced with death, Shirukyi was happy because the meaningless killings would finally stop — or so he thought. A goddess reincarnates him because she has a mission for him: kill the reincarnated people in her world. Also, Shirukyi is to do so without any special powers or abilities that Isekai characters normally get. She wanted him to kill them because they were abusing the powers she gave them, which is why she didn’t give the serial killer any powers.

Shirukyi and Tanya are both killers, although they have different motives. Tanya kills for the greater good of her country, while the serial killer kills just because he feels like it. But thanks to the goddess, now at least he has a good enough reason to kill.

2 Record Of Highserk War

Protagonists Are Reborn As Soldiers In Times Of War

  • Japanese Title: Nigoru Hitomi de Nani wo Negau: Highserk Senki
  • Creator: Torutonen and Saitou Yanomi
  • Number of Chapters: Still Publishing

After dying, one would expect to experience eternal bliss or, in the case of anime, be reborn in a fantasy world where life is relatively simpler. However, Takakura had the opposite experience. He dies from a heart attack and is reborn as Walm, a soldier who has to survive an invasion attack. Walm’s hands are stained with blood, and he has to keep killing in order to survive.

Before Tanya became Tanya, she was an unnamed Japanese salaryman who died and reincarnated as Tanya. Just like Takakura, this unnamed Japanese salaryman finds himself in a war-ridden country in the body of a soldier. It turns out that this soldier is Tanya Degurechaff, who would do anything to protect her comrades and lead them to victory. Tanya and Walm’s hands are both stained with blood, but they keep going because it is what keeps them alive.

1 She Professed Herself Pupil Of The Wise Man

Both Leads Find Themselves In The Body Of A Girl

  • Japanese Title: Kenja no Deshi wo Nanoru Kenja the Comic
  • Creator: Suemitsu Dicca and Ryuusen Hirotsugu
  • Number of Chapters: Still Publishing

From playing a game as an adult man to being stuck in the body of a young girl, this is the story of Sakimori Kagami as he finds himself in the world of his favorite video game, Arch Earth Online. This new environment shocks him, but as he adjusts to it and familiarizes himself with the people in this virtual world, he is also planning his escape back to his normal world.

Just like Kagami, Saga of Tanya the Evil is about a Japanese salaryman who finds himself in the body of a young girl who turns out to be ruthless and bloodthirsty. Both series feature the protagonists trying to adapt to their very unfamiliar new bodies.
