There are two kinds of isekai anime. In the first, the MC is fairly ordinary, and has to struggle and strive to achieve greatness. This is not that! Overlord is the second kind, where the MC is so overwhelmingly powerful that they have zero chance of losing a single conflict. And it’s so much rip-roaring, rocking fun! Through four seasons […]
This is not typical isekai. This show is way off the ordinary isekai track. Most isekai shows are subjected, unfairly I believe, to the charge of being very cookie-cutter, sharing too many characteristics, to the point that one seems very much like a copy of the next. Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation definitely does everything it can to buck that label. […]
Another predictable isekai anime? Really? No Hawk, it’s parody. Oh, it’s parody, you say—well that just makes everything better doesn’t it?
All routes lead to doom! Our poor protagonist (antagonist?) finds herself reincarnated into an otome game where she’s the villain! In a rarer form of isekai where a girl finds herself transported to a new world, this show is funny and fast-paced with amazing characters and beautiful artwork. Definitely one of my favorites from the 2020 lineup! S2 just wrapped […]
I honestly watched this show because I knew Chiwa Saito was playing Kahabell (the sadistic knight if you’re not super familiar with the names yet). I have some mixed feelings about it. Anything she touches I’m going to like usually. Overall I’ve enjoyed this show. I wasn’t quite sure after S1 ended, but S2 pleased me in a lot of […]
If you thought Death Note when you first read this, you’d be wrong. If you thought Death Parade, you’d be wrong. If you thought George Gershwin or Freddy Mercury, you’d be wrong, but I like you. If you thought this was just another isekai anime, you’d be right and you’d be wrong.
Have you ever wondered what would happen if those hordes of evildoers in isekai worlds, with their swords and arrows and armor and forced evil laughter, were ever faced with the might of a modern mechanized military? This anime shows you exactly what will happen! And it is not pretty. For the evil hordes I mean!
People have very strong opinions about this show. Among popular anime, I see the most variation of opinion about this one. Some people totally love it and some people really, really hate it. And I can understand all of it. This show is one of the greatest isekai animes ever brought to life, but at times is so artistically misguided […]
Fun, pretty, artistic, and yuri. And those really, really, REALLY weird faces. Yami to Boushi to Hon to Tabibito is a quick and fun ride through some interesting worlds–via books!–and cute characters. And yes, just a little yuri. Think Alice in Wonderland meets Dr. Who with yuri. This one’s a little lesser-known than some anime, so if you like to […]
