Ichirou Suzuki, a programmer nearing his thirties, is drowning in work. Worn out, he eventually has a chance to catch up on sleep, only to wake up and discover himself in a fantasy RPG world, which is mashed together from the games he was debugging in reality. In this new place, he realizes that not only has his appearance changed to a younger version of himself, but his name has also changed to Satou, a nickname he used while running beta tests on games.

However, before Satou can fully grasp his situation, an army of lizardmen launch an assault on him. Forced to cast a powerful spell in retaliation, Satou wipes them out completely and his level is boosted to 310, effectively maximizing his stats. Now, as a high-leveled adventurer armed with a plethora of skills and no way to return to reality, Satou sets out to explore this magical new world.

After reading reviews for this, I've put this show off for a while. When I was finally in the mood for some Isekai trash, I gave it a watch and I'm genuinely surprised that this show gets so much hate.

On the surface, it has several things I typically dislike in Isekai. A bland, dark-haired teenager and a harem of girls that want his D. But I found that those aspects are really not that bad in this. MC is fairly average amongst the nice guy protag's we usually get in these, but we fortunately get an internal monologue and a slow but steady increase in ...

Mixed Feelings
This might just be the most generic Anime I ever watched, and I think that's sort of okay.

It had no strengths, but also no weaknesses - and how could it? Everything about it was safe, simple, predictable and average. I'm kind of impressed by just how bland this show was, yet I wasn't bored. Now that it's over though, I feel like I skipped 4 hours of my life with no real gain or loss. So uninspired and bland, I guess that's kinda depressing, actually.
I guess I could complain about a few details, but why bother? I don't care enough and honestly cannot imagine ...

Before I start to collapse writing this review, I want to leave a question for you. "When you go watch an anime, what is the main feature you want to see in the work? Or do you not even care about that, and just want to see what it has to show you in general." In my case and the second, I just want to appreciate the work that was created, even if there are millions of similar works already, without worrying about a specific characteristic. Sorry, I just wanted to get off to a more relaxed start when I talk about bad works, so ...
