At first I wasn't really absorbed with this series and just started watching it while waiting for one of my downloads to finish. However as the1st episode progressed, I slowly found myself getting drawn into the story. The basic storyline wasn't anything new. It had the same premises as some other fantasy series with the main character getting thrown into an unknown world in order to fight the villain. However the other elements of the series helped bring the story to life.
I thought that the art was very well done and really brought out the attractive aspects of nature and the wild. While watching Kenshi out in the open, I found myself wishing to be in his shoes in order to feel the wind in my face and the grass beneath my feet.
The op and ed for this series wasn't anything too special. Both pieces of music fit the series and was enjoyable to listen to. However they weren't anything people would go nuts about. The voice acting for this series was well done. All the voice actors brought their characters to life and carried the characters' feeling across to the viewer.
Being of the harem genre, the female characters were very diverse in terms of personality and looks. However unlike other harem series, I actually found myself liking all of the main female cast. Many series have at least one female lead who I just can't stand, whether it's because they're all whiny because they can't get their feelings across or because they're insecure about themselves. In this series I found myself laughing at all the comedic situations between the female characters and Kenshi and didn't find myself displeased one bit.
Kenshi was also another reason why I enjoyed this series. (Maybe it's because I recently started watching School Days and quickly got tired of Makoto's unappealing character.) Anyhow I really enjoyed Kenshi's confident and bright personality. He started out in the story as a strong protagonist and ended the story as a strong protagonist. He didn't really have to grow in character because he was already a likable character from the beginning.
With many harem series, I usually find myself cursing at the last episode if it ends in an open ending. However with this series I thought that the ending actually fit and didn't resent the producers for not choosing a concrete female lead for Kenshi to end up with. This is probably because romance was not the main point of the series. You could tell that many of the female cast had feelings for Kenshi but the way the story unfolded, you never really expected for Kenshi to become lovey doey. This series was mainly focused on the comedic situations between Kenshi and the other characters with the mecha fighting thrown in as a bonus.
This series was very enjoyable for me to watch and I never felt like skipping ahead in any of the episodes. Rather, I felt that the episodes were too short as I wanted to see more of Kenshi. Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari was a great series for me and I would wholeheartedly recommend anyone to watch it read more

Whilst there are subtle references to the MC being part of the Tenchi Muyo universe(TenchiVerse), I doubt it would be enough for anyone to think that they would need to watch the past franchise before starting this series.
The story itself is pretty generic and is about a boy who is summoned to a world not of his own with only his wits(and an inexhaustible amount of physical power) to help him find his way back home to Japan. One of the reasons why I've taken a liking to this series is due to having the MC play an active role with this anime compared to his spin-off predecessors when it comes to the action. Of course not a lot of people will like MC due to how much he portrays as a Gary Stu being all perfect, but that doesn't really phase too much as I had found Kenshi to be very likable opposed to past harem stereotypes.
Whilst there is an underlining plot of conspiracy and betrayal within Isekai, don't be alarmed if the imbalance throws you off from an episode tense with drama and action to than randomly switch to fanservice as all-in-all like its previous spin-offs, the focus is heavily set on its harem/ecchi genre and all part of the humor. Although I should add for an OVA where its producers could have taken advantage to a lot more fanservice and nudity, I have to respect that they didn't, as to not ruin the main focus of the plot(lacking as it was).
As a fan of the franchise since the early 90's, I have never been one to critique their sense of animation & design as it was usually the slap-stick comedy which had made me a TenchiVerse fan in the first place, so I was surprised and amazed with the improvement in animation since the time-gap with Tenchi Muyo GXP(last spin-off I had seen back in 2003). Although not a Miyazaki or Shinkai, Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari is pretty well animated for its time.
Whilst most Tenchi Muyo anime have had an outstanding OST to back their series/OVA, unfortunately this is where I felt the series may have failed for me, which in turn eventuated my score back to a 5. OP and ED were great in their own way, I felt it just did not match the vibe which this series portrayed and BGM at times did not suit some of the moods. But please don't let that turn you off from watching the series as this does not necessarily mean a bad thing(it could probably just be me feeling nostalgic to the franchises older OST). In regards to voice actors, as I had watched the whole series in its native language, I had felt they had picked the right seiyuus as each character played their part well without sounding out of place(unlike some anime that can make you cringe just from a character opening their mouth!).
With an original plot outside of the Tenchi Muyo universe, I felt the characters were molded very well to fit the scenarios and as mentioned, minimal references had been borrowed off the franchise for hardcore fans out there to conspire theories to their hearts content. (10pts going to whoever guesses the cameo in episode 4)
Now for those who may have already seen this show or are half-way may think the show ranks of predictability and clichés but hey, in this day and age what anime doesn't? If you can't get past that part and enjoy the show for what it is, than it would be a waste of even watching it in the first place. Isekai doesn't try to be that next thing and is just there to be purely enjoyed (and which I believe they've done well with).
Whether the cast of girls can be classed as clichéd, I have to admit that they have been played well and their parts not as overused as what you'd normally see from a typical harem cast(eg.the tsundere type that's too tsun-tsun or the love-love type who smothers the hero too much).
While the cast is too many to mention(just check Wiki if you like to know more), what I will mention is that if you like your Gary Stu's(opposed to the uninspiring stereotype you get in harems), than you will definitely like this series as Kenshi is what you would call a one-man army with his exceptional skills whether they be domestic or on the battlefield.
Enjoyment and OverAll: 8
Whilst I'm not as big a fan of harem anime as I use to(only few harems I still enjoy to this day), when I did watch them I'd always hope that the protagonist gets "all" instead of having to choose only one girl(why make one happy when you can make them all right?). Yes its unrealistic, but you don't watch a harem let alone a harem fantasy for realism, and for a franchise that practices polygamy as a norm, I believe any hot blooded male shouldn't have any room to complain.
Like I earlier mentioned this review will sound very biased(especially after mentioning that I'm a huge fan), so I can only say this: watch the series for yourself if your into the following genres - harem, action, likable overpowered characters and slap-stick comedy, I can guarantee that you will like Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari. read more

For the weak hearted who cannot withstand suspense and a long wait-
Please wait till episode 8 is released before watching episode 7. Yes,action is heating up!!
Even with almost half the ova series aired, I am still unable to rate it.
So this review is not to tell you how good or bad it it, but what can be expected.
In short, this is for anime fans who have yet to decide if they want to follow Isekai Seikishi Monogatari, after all, one episode a month is a long wait.
When I started watching, I was actually relieved that I could follow the plot quite easily. With all the references made to Tenchi Muyo, I thought I would be completely lost having missed Tenchi.
While the main character Kenshi, was indeed summoned from Tenchi's world, the similarity ends there.
Other than Kenshi, there is a wide array of characters keeping it highly entertaining. Whatever character you like, you may just find one you favor here.
Well, one thing that each episode never lacks is fan service. There is bound to be sensual sneak peeks or sexual connotations especially while the girls tease Kenshi mercilessly. The jokes however, are neither tacky nor slap stick, just plain 'high-school' type of funny.
But, after an action packed episode 1 that reeks of conspiracy, some viewers may be disappointed with the lack of that follows.
As the adventure moves from assassination to school life, the action changes from running from enemy Mechas to running from squealing demanding girls.
Still it would be unfair to judge the series as a love comedy as that is not entirely true.
The beautifully executed moves and the heart gripping close calls of the fights so far are definitely worth watching.
And as Kenshi gets used to his new life, the conspiracy slowly and steadily unravels.
Only problem is, maybe it is going a little too slowly and I'm just aching for more
explosive action. I'll definitely add on to this review if more excitement unfolds.
With no overpowering focus on one single genre, there is something here for different viewers.
And the plot unfolds so smoothly that viewers wouldn't be confused.
So maybe, after the last episode of this Ova is aired, I might just be satisfied after all.

[contains suggestive language, and an extreme loss of interest in constructive reasoning halfway through.]
It's difficult to end a harem. Regardless of how happy the ending turns out to be, only one girl 'wins' the guy over -- the others are presumably meant to cope with the loss. Some series like Mashiro-iro show the externalities of a singular bliss, while series like Zero no Tsukaima, like most others, avoid the topic all together. Isekai handles a harem correctly [as it is the highest rated harem on MAL], but it does so in an unorthodox manner.
It does this by creating a romance so weak, that the very element of it could be miscategorized as simple interaction, devoid of especial sentiments. Every heroine in Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari inevitably and invariably falls in love with the protagonist -- but contrary to a typical harem series, they're all given equal screen time. There are no routes, and each heroine is subject to nothing more than the playful interactions. From the get-go, it was apparent that Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari did not intend for a meaningful romantic ending. To some viewers, that's a let-down; you typically watch a romance for a romantic ending -- a harem is synonymous with the romance genre [girls falling in love with the guy kinda fall under the category]. But, just as Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari is the "highest rating harem on MAL", it's also missing the elusive "romance" tag.
Isekai is not a romance series. As to what the series excels in, it would be the character interactions. In Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari, there is an underlining storyline -- the series begins integrated within the grand storyline, and it ends in a similar fashion; yet, the "middle episodes" of the series ignores the storyline development outside of slight mentions to development [prioritizing slice-of-life-esque interactions above hard storyline]. These episodes, which could have been erroneously miscategorized as traditional filler episodes [to a storyline-centric series], were probably the most enjoyable parts of the series. Isekai doesn't excel in dialogue; its storyline is generic [albeit not entirely predictable from the start], and its soundtrack is forgettable -- but, it combines a cast of likable characters and fresh comedy into the amalgamation that earns it score.
We're given a protagonist that's essentially beta in attitude, but alpha in attributes [like really fucking alpha]. He's given a wide variety of females. From oversized breasts, to ample deposits of nature, to nonexistent ones, Isekai panders to every demographic. If you're a fan of tsunderes, there's that -- if you want an overbearing, older sister character, there's that too -- the trustworthy bodyguard? Why the fuck not. How about the silent girl who never does anything but look cute? Sorta. The genius lolicon? Sorta too. Isekai has a vast variety of characters. It's guilt-free in ending because the romance doesn't exist, they're just there to essentially look attractive [who the fuck doesn't like attractive girls?].
Then there's a matter of the art. Thirteen episodes and a year of airing time -- every episode has well above-average production qualities. The art style is likable and the animation is great; the colors are bright, and this section is generic as fuck. Who the fuck actually criticizes art and animation. The art's pretty and shit.
[shit's being used as a noun in this case, not a negative noun, more of a passive noun --
A: What the fuck is this shit?
B: It is my Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari review.
A: No shit. ]
Sound: I don't even fucking remember the soundtrack. The opening song was kinda nice. There was an ending theme? Must have skipped onto the next episode before it played.
Enjoyment: Shit was enjoyable.
[I kinda dislike block reviews. I really just wanted to say that Isekai did the harem genre correctly in not creating super serious bonds between the characters. It was simple and likable. It's good because of that.]

There i go, watched the first episode. At the ending it made me really curious on about what's going to happen next, which is a sign that i enjoy watching the anime. One more thing is, i failed to notice that the first episode had a 51 minute runtime, WHICH MADE ME REALIZE THAT I WAS REALLY ENJOYING THIS ANIME.
The plot has so many twists and turns, which i admire very much because there isn't much anime that can make your predictions wrong. With that said, most of my predictions on this anime were denied/mistaken/wrong, and that made me watch it more and more. There are some things that were left unexplained/unclear like how did he get into their world etc. But upon searching for answers i think you must watch the Tenchi Muyo series. Ecchi scenes were decent. I also admired the idea that the Male sekishi's(Male Pilots) are like Gold. Male seikishi's are very rare, which leads into an ultimate harem paradise. To wrap it all up, i gave the 10/10 score because for me, it was really worth it, the plot was unique for me, and i highly recommend this to be watched by everyone.
Like i said, i really hate the "Mecha" anime genre. But i find the mecha here fine,mainly because it was not all machine(Comapared to gundam and others.). Animation was smooth for my standards, and having each character a unique kind of seikishin is just awesome.
The sounds when royalty arrive, when there are battles, all the background music here is just in sync. Sound effects were very good. The voices of the characters were great. And did i mention the OP song was so awesome?
The characters here are "Unique". One reason is because they have their own form of seikishin's. Another is they are from different kingdoms/race etc. An OP Protagonist from a different world. A newly crowned young queen that loves to make money, a tsundere, a ton of mysterious characters and more. But of course, the mysterious characters here really defines the word "Mysterious". And may i just add, the harem girls here are all beautiful in their own ways. This is one of the best anime harem anime out there people, I'll bet my life on that.
Fully watching a 45 minutes per episode anime ain't enough to prove that you are enjoying the anime? Okay *Insert Okay meme here*. From the first episode to the last, enjoyment is really evident. Mainly because you will have the urge to want more. For me one of the reasons that i enjoyed this anime are the twists and surprises it brings. I wont state these twists and surprises though, it's up to you to know :D.
Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari is, by all means, one of the best anime that i have ever watched. In every scenes that a mysterious character is shown, it will leave you wondering, "What would that guy do and why do he knows a lot of things?" kind of thinking. Later on, you will know, and you will be surprised by everything when revelations are revealed(REDUNDANCY'S FTW!). Another thing is this is the first 45 minute per episode anime that i finished and the first mecha anime that i loved. This anime just keeps on making you want more every ending of one episode. When i finished watching this, it just left me there hungry for more. Overall, This anime is just Great/Outstanding/Amazing/Magnificent. Highly recommended to be watched by everyone. read more

The story of the show was slightly above average. Not saying it was great or original, but the show did have a tolerable story. What I enjoyed most was the world it took place in. You see, all the machines get their power from the world itself. They then use this to power to pilot their, what look and move like, Bio engineered mechs. Steam powered versions are still in the development stage, and only a few models exist in the beginning of the series. Only females seem to be able to pilot these mech's and the few males that can as well, are safeguarded. They are essentially held prisoner, as breeding a male and female would make a pure bred pilot who's skills are unmatched. They don't show it, but apparently they hate having to grow up and marry whichever hot anime babe their assigned to and eventually having to sex them up before they'r told to move on to the next... 0_0
The animation style in the show was fantastic. The fights, the faces and the many awkward moments in between were made much more enjoyable by the animations. The mech fights get very intense and aren't to slow pace, which I love in fights. There were some slight annoyances in the show, such as everyone except Kenshi being inept in every way. They all stand their and get their @sses kicked, or show up after Kenshi has devised a plan to escape his various situations... Not that he needs to, seeing as how he's so OVER POWERED!!! No joke, he doesn't run into any problems until the final boss... what's the points in starting a game at level 100!?!?!
Sound was good, didn't much care for any voice in particular and the music never managed to get me pumped up as I prefer to be when enjoying my action. I suppose their isn't much to elaborate on when it comes to sound.
Now for characters. The main character is a boy named Kenshi. He's one of those few male pilots I was talking about. In my opinion, the minor thing that makes him different is that he's from another world... The greater difference being that this male happens to be the only skilled character in the show. Then there's Princess Lashara, who is a greedy useless b#tch who just so happens to give Kenshi something that's reminiscent of a life... with slavery involved. Their's plenty of other's, 95% of which are females that one by one fall for Kenshi. Then there's Dagmyer, who's a whinny b#tch that can't take getting beaten again and again and again an- I think you get it. I guess I'd be pissed all the time if I was useless too.
All in all, I give the show a 6. I enjoyed the action, though it had several hilarious moments thrown in. I don't normally watch harem animes, but I stepped out of my comfort zone to try and enjoy this one. All in all, I don't think harems are for me... one crazy anime chick is good enough. Hope this review helped you out, if not then bite me... I'm tired now, goodbye! read more

It revolves around Masaki Kenshi, who was sent from his homeworld Earth to faraway world Geminar. In Geminar there exists mechanoid weapons known as Seikijin which are used instead of your typical armies, and their pilots known as Seikishi. The story is brilliant as it's not too fast paced that you get confused as to what is going on, but also not too slow so you actually get involved in the story rather than sit around hoping it moves forward. It's not just your "typical" mecha in the same vein that it's not your "typical" harem.
The character designs were really well done, and each character had their own feel to them. The scenery and the background was very attractive and you could imagine yourself actually being there. The mecha designs were brilliant as each character had their own mecha design and wasn't just a "stock" design and colour regime.
I really liked the background music and it really fit in where it was placed. The right tone and pace for the easygoing/peaceful music fit the atmosphere, and the dramatic/lowered tone music really fit the tensions in the scene they were placed. OP and ED wasn't something amazing, nor was it something bad. Both of them fit the show really well and the videos shown give you a sense of what's to come. The voice acting on average was above par compared to some shows i've seen, i was really impressed with Kenshi's VA throughout and each character had their own quirks which were all well done ~Zamasu!
As i mentioned in the story, this wasn't your typical harem. Most harems follow a certain design, with the Main Character (MC) either being a childhood friend or helping them out which gets the girls to like him in turn. In Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari, Kenshi just steals the show by either being adorable (this is coming from a straight guy), hilarious or utterly badass, and the girls around him fall for him in no time. Each girl in the harem has their own quirks and personalities, none of which are recycled and all of which are actually enjoyable and well liked.
This show gave me the most fun i've ever had watching anime, everything i've mentioned is combined into one big ball of epicness. Also, this show has an amazing amount of rewatchability value, i am not ashamed to admit i have watched it in its entirety 9 times. Each episode is 45-50 minute long, which is good for those of us who hate it when episodes end so suddenly after 25 minutes, but its not too long to make you run out of patience. read more

This series has got to be one of the most funniest that i have watched so far, i have not laughed as hard while watching this then other anime's i have seen. The mix between Action, Comedy, and School life have me at a hope that they will be making a second season!
If you're someone that is looking for action as well as comedy then this series will be a treat for you! If not, you should still give it a chance. You'll be hooked within minutes of the first episode!
I hope you enjoyed reading my first review, and helped you decide on watching a great anime! read more

Another anime where a boy is thrown into an unknown world where he becomes of great use. Machines called Seikishi dominate the military aspect of a country and can only be controlled by certain people. And of course, Misaki Kenshi happens to be one of these people. Good progression throughout the series and most things are explained thoroughly. The ending makes a second season desirable. For not being an original plot, this series keeps you interested with its humor and half-bit romance.
Sorry but I have no taste in art so this is really just the number that popped up when i thought about it.
Personally i loved the opening and ending songs. Just listening to the opening gets you pumped for the actual show.
Characters development is minimal in my opinion except when love interest start to appear, but i gave it an 8 because i think that made it more enjoyable.
This show made my life when i watched it the first time. I could not stop watching it. Action combined with humor and romance peaked my interest too much.
I highly recommend this show to anyone who enjoys the three things i mentioned above. Must have second season! read more

Isekai is basically a mix of romance, action, mecha, awesome main character who owns everyone who stands in his way and alot of girls. Isekai does not differ alot from the standard mecha/harem anime where the guy is the all mighty chosen one who is a total wimp (Shinji from Evangelion) but there is a big difference that the main character in Isekai is actually worthy as a hero.
For anyone who thinks that the plot is crucial should stop reading since you will definetly not be astounded by it. The plot revolves around Kenshi who is a boy from another dimension and is able to fight with a seikishi exceedingly well. The girls in the anime is more of a decoration than actually driving the plot forward, there isn't any major twists or anything that will make you sit at the edge of your seat cursing that you should have gone to the toilet earlier or should have bought some popcorn but the plot is enjoyable and can get really addictive if you like harem/action animes.
Since the anime is quite new both the art and the sound are good. I really like the OP of the anime and the sound effects brings a new feeling to the anime. The art is nothing to boast about but keeps the standards relativley high and it is no reason to not watch the anime. There are a few visual bugs but it's barely noticable and should not in any way hinder you from trying this anime.
The characters are a bit mainstream and we have seen them all before. The girls are as I said above nothing special but has a comfortable vibe to them which is nice for the whole story.
Since I have yet to actually finish the anime (The anime is still not fully subbed) I will give it an 8 out of 10 since i'm hoping to see a good ending.
Comfortable characters which won't make you scream of irritation
Good animation and sound effects
Alot of comedy which is actually decent
A school full of girls (a personal pro from me:D)
No unique characters
Takes alot of time to get subbed
The bad guy is way to normal for me read more

Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari was a fantastic show, well-animated, great music, and very likeable characters.
Story - 9
The story is basically split into two arcs, the first arc is set in an elite,practically all-girls school where we meet all the main female characters and the few male protagonists. The second arc is more serious in tone and is essentially a "save the world" arc with Kenshi and those he has made his friends with attempting to stop a catastrophe.
Art - 10
Awesome! What more can i say.
Sound - 10
Every piece that is played from the introduction, background, and ending was really nice. (the background music is played only a few times, but it sure is catchy. i found myself humming it a lot when i first finished the series lol)
Characters - 11
The main relationships, along with character and plot development pretty much happen around Kensh, he is the main character after all.
Kenshi is probably the coolest character i have ever seen, he posses near superhuman reflexes and strength which practically make him look like a god.
As the show goes on more and more women and girls gather around Kenshi, and in the end fall madly in love with him. A repeating event in the show is Kenshi being chased by all these girls, but when you consider that this is an OVA of the Tenchi universe you can't really be surprised by that lol.
Enjoyment - 10
Harem,Mecha, OVA of Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki, what more can you ask for

This does contain some spoilers, but it will not impact the series in any way. Anyone who has not watched this should not have a problem with the spoilers as it does not reveal any plot twists, etc(except episode 1, but what the hell, it's episode one haha).
The graphics and battles were top notch. However, the entire series was literally a land fill of fillers all the way until at least episode 9. Episodes 2-9 were just Kenshi meeting girls and getting into harem themed situations. Granted the situations were funny at times, it got repetitive, dragged out and ultimately ruined the entire series for me.
All the plot holes also tested my patience with this anime. I never drop animes but this one seriously had me contemplating on it. An example would be why? Why is the Holy Island getting attacked? Because of your 'ideologies'? Would you at least take some time to tell us instead of bombarding us with panties and breasts? Also, as would be expected, no one dies in this anime. They just keep on coming back and back and back and back.
Another one would be that the timing on the music is horrible. Though the music (BG music) itself is not bad, the timing is horrible. Did I just say that twice? Well let me say it again. The timing is absolutely horrible in this. I could tell when they tried to make a 'situation' seem serious or dire only to be ruined by the music. An example of this would be on episode 13 when the students of the Holy Island are trying to take back the land. There's some fluffly music playing that could easily be used during one of Kenshi's Harem situations. Everyone is laughing and having a good time even though it's the last episode. Instead of laughing and smilling, at least try and keep a serious face.
I can say after finishing this OVA series that there was literally no character development. The only 'development' I saw throughout were characters becoming tsundere and just becoming an outright harem.
For me, the only time this anime for me gave off a sense of seriousness was when Kenshi's seikijin went black and white and went berserk. That and in the beginning of episode 1 when Kenshi was on the swan trying to kill that princess. Not even the climax could be taken seriously. Kenshi wasn't even breathing hard during the final battle even though Gaia was many times stronger then him and he wasn't even trying his hardest until Chiaia threatens to take away his gems??? What the hell? He had a harder time compressing his sword then fighting Gaia. Mediocre until the very end.
After the Holy island is taken over, for some reason NO ONE cares that all their material possessions, everything they've owned is being pillaged by the thieves and all they care about is catching Kenshi's attention and being infatuated with him. Completely ridiculous. I know this is an anime, but can you at least make an attempt in trying to make the situations they're in at least seem realistic, having some type of impact on the characters?
This anime, barely being able to keep my attention I may have skipped on some points but I'm pretty sure I nailed the major flaws in this anime. Giving this anime even a 5 would be too much. I rated this a 2, which seems just about right when the plot is a complete mess, riddled with plot holes and too many fillers. I seriously can not recommend this to anyone. However, if you're into harems and don't give a damn about plots or character development, then go ahead and watch this train wreck of an anime. read more

Our story begins with the inauguration ceremony of princess Lashara which is shortly followed up by an assassination attempt while on her way to the "Holy Land." Her guards manage to prevent the attempt and capture Masaki Kenshi, a boy from another world who was involved in the attempt because he was promised a way home. His efforts get side-tracked as he becomes Lashara's servant, gets involved in random harem nonsense at her academy and becomes embroiled in a major conflict. In all fairness, there are some ideas that have potential with the conflict. The problem is the execution. The potentially interesting parts get pushed to the side in favour of the horrible harem elements and "humour." As you've probably guessed, the humour is terrible... No, it's beyond terrible. It moves beyond the realm of terrible taste and into the realm of abhorrent. Expect a lot of jokes about sexual assault. Because... Shirane Hideki is a braying jackass. There's no other explanation. Another problem with the series is that it's very predictable. You could watch the first few episodes and guess pretty much exactly what's going to happen. Then there's the issue of impact. Any given moment that would have impact in a well written series doesn't in this one. They'll give it a minute or two of screen time and then never mention it again unless the plot requires them to. There are also a lot of minor moments of stupidity and they add up. To give an example, there's a point where the characters are discussing what they should compress into a powerful weapon. When scrap metal is suggested it's dismissed as not being strong enough. After that, gold is brought up as ideal. Gold. For those of you who don't know, gold (even as an alloy or in ingots) is a very weak, malleable substance. So, in addition to being a terrible person, Shirane doesn't even science.
That brings us to the cast of characters. They range from incredibly bland to extremely annoying. The one thing they do with them that's slightly different from the usual harem formula is that Kenshi isn't a hero who's just average in every respect but the girls fall all over because he's generically good. Rather, he's super-humanly good at everything except understanding people. By far the worst characters are Lashara, who is a spoiled brat, Mexiah, Ulyte and Flora (those three are all sexual predators, which is played up as being funny.)
the art is pretty decent in a lot of respects. The giant robots are well designed, there are some good nature scenes as well. Unfortunately, there are a lot of issues here as well. The character faces are just awful. A lot of the time they'll randomly look super elongated or the expressions will just look really off. A bigger issue is the level of fan-service. Here's the thing, most of us know what the female body looks like and most of us can agree that there's nothing wrong with the human form. The problem is when a series like this objectifies its characters with a bunch of ass and breast shots for the sole purpose of titillating hormonal, heterosexual men. A perfect example is the flight suits. Only the female pilots wear them (which indicates that they aren't even necessary so why the hell bother changing out of your regular, comfortable clothes) and they're cut to show as much as possible. Because why bother with things like consistency and making sense when you can show boobs?
The acting in this is meh. Most of the characters don't have much in terms of emotional range and the voice acting reflects that. Which is a pity since they did get some good actors like Tsunematsu Ayumi, Noda Junko and Yonezawa Madoka, to name a few. The sound is a bit grating. It's fine when they leave it in the background, but there are times when the effects get way too loud for no good reason. The opening and ending music is just annoying.
The Ho-yay factor is a 4/10. And that is for yuri. Mexiah openly sleeps with her female students because Shirane apparently cares more about using lesbianism as a fetish than having a world with sensical ethical standards.
This anime is awful. It has some good ideas, but they're buried under a deluge of unpleasantness, stupidity and misogyny (which could fall under unpleasantness, but I feel it merits mention as its own category.) My final rating is a 2/10. next week I'll finally be free of harem anime for a while, horror anime month begins with a look at La Portrait de Petit Cosette.

I really liked this anime I always rewatch the Tenchi Muyo! spin-offs and main storys so I think i might be able to give a fair review of this spin-off so here it is.
First off this and the main story are the best in the Tenchi Muyo! series in my opinion.
I gave the story a 9 because it wasn't anything unique, boy piloting mech with girls around him. I could name atleast 3 animes right of the top of my head that have the same quality, but it was good and it held my attention through the whole anime.
I gave the art a 10 because well idk it was just really good I don't watch animes without good art alot of times and trust me if this had bad art I would not of wrote a review.
I gave the sound a 10 because it fit the anime really well in all parts from the beginning through the end of the episode. I didn't feel the music was out of place(from what i can remember i took a break at episode 12 for about a month).
I gave character a 10 because I enjoyed all of them, they all fit well together and never left you feeling like the producers could of done more. I will say Masaki, Kenshi wasn't all unique in all aspects but I enjoyed him from beginning tell end.
I gave enjoyment a 10 because I never watch a anime i don't enjoy all the 10s should back me.
Overall a 9 because iv seen more then one mech harem like this were main guy saves world/girl and i couldn't bring my self to give it a 10.
If this review sucks don't let it push you away from this great and outstanding anime with great character development and a high rewatch value. I was entertained from episode 1 and never regretted watching it. read more

Isekai is about a mysterious young man (Kenshi) who was originally supposed to kill one of the princesses but was then caught. From here is where the story really begins. INSM is in my opinion a super harem anime. I mean, every single woman who interacts with Kenshi is in awe/love with him. I've seen many harem animes but the comedy in this anime works for me in regards to all the women chasing after Kenshi. This hero could do no wrong and everything just seems to work out for him.
The comedy wouldn't work if it wasn't for the supporting cast. Each main supporting character was really fun to watch.
The animation wasn't really up to par in my opinion based on the year that this was released. However, it doesn't really detract. It even appears to get better in the later episodes.
I'm generally a big critic on story. The story in INSM was a little confusing and some parts didn't make sense but it was acceptable. I wasn't really watching this anime for the grand story but for the comedy.
Overall I give Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari an 8. After each episode, I couldn't wait to start the next one. I was very entertained and I really like how each episode is over 45 minutes long. read more

All in all its a adventure anime with the boy being "summoned" to another world or later in the anime it hints to a spaceship, so I'm guessing its another planet. The protagonist is trying to get home any way he can. It starts with him trying to assassinate the princess, but he fails and is almost killed. He is later captured by the princess and made her servant. Kenshi is later found out to be very strong and agile and everyone wants him working in their departments such as cooking, tailoring, washing, housekeeping, and many other tedious tasks. The ending was predictable yet enjoyable. I rate this at 9.7/10 of I could. read more

The story was great I liked how it gave you more information about the characters as the episodes went on. The art of fantastic there were some scenes that looked like they could be better but the tenchi muyo series draw it that way I think for comic relief, just to point in hated the drawer for Tenchi in Tokyo. The music was really good loved the beginning watched the opening on every episode. The characters were great that's why I hope they come up with another season. Enjoyed this series very much. Overall I give it a 10 read more

I disagree with the reviewer who said that the OP and ED (ending?) wasn't anything special. The OP drove me nuts. I absolutely love it. I even downloaded it to my iPod.
The girls of the series are really diverse and different. Unlike many other harems where a small, dorky male somehow manages to entice all sorts of fabulous women by just standing next to them, the protagonist of Isekai No Seikishi Monogatari deserves it. He is the half-brother of Tenchi Masaki (from Tenchi Muyo if you haven't watched it) and just like his brother he is a strong, noble, and kind person.
The artwork is absolutely brilliant (or at least it was for me since I have the episodes in both 1080 and 720 quality).
Unlike many other harems this one actually has a plot and a good one at that. This is a spin-off of the Tenchi series and much like the other ones it has a connection to the parent story.
I hope a second season comes out since there are a lot of questions unanswered at the end. read more

Originally, I wanted nothing to do with "yet another haremy animu where the women rule everything, the guys are LOSERS (and this smuck will prove it), and features enough fanservice to warrant a need for full-on adult anime but won't do it because the people behind it don't have enough spine."
Well... "Kenshi Muyo" is basically "Tenchi Muyo" done MUTHA####IN' RIGHT to a certain extent. Replacing the male lead, who spent most of his time being pathetic; with, basically, "The Most Interesting Shounen In The Word." Kenshi has the capability to kick his own harem's collective and cute @$$es (which is my standard for rating animu nowadays), yet contains 0% malice and comes off as someone who can't do no wrong.
The 13-episode, 45-minute OVA collection's got a lot going for it (some of it basically screaming "h-doujin material"):
* Delicious Dark Elf
* Girls by the shipload.
* A few characters being two or three.
* Happy Ending Massage Trope
* "Couple B" Ceres (normal with a hint of badazz) & Hazuki
* Hot MILFs
* Hot Chairwomen
* The "Char Aznable Clone"
* Shout-Outs to Ghost N Da Shell and Daul Photon.
* Professor Anne Mary Ann (Wahanly)
But in the end, this show became nothing more than a jewel "Japan via Akihabara (and therefore Wapan)" did not want you to find. It's the type of show that would smack Evangelion and Code Geass in their MUTHA####IN' faces despite the former never being as popular. And that's a shame.
It's a shame because (I SAID IT A MILLION TIMES, AMERICA'S NOT JAPAN.) In order for the Japanese to fulfill their wishes and take over the world, they need to "spine up" and "man up." They need to start making anime for the meat-eaters and make less animu for the plant-eaters.
More shounen leads need to start kicking their own harem's @$$es. Juuden-chan. Mondaiji. Nyaruko-san. Rogue Hero. Ghost Hunt and Stigga Winds Attitude. Just to name only a few; screw "Cool Japan." WHERE YOUR SPINE @?! read more
