This has got the be my pick for the hidden gem of Summer Season 2021. A truly unique and entertaining anime going against almost all of the Isekai genre's Stereotypes. While the show did have a slightly mediocre first few episodes it really picked up it's pace shortly after and became the series i was looking forward to the most each week.

First things first, my only real criticism for the show: The production feels really cheap. And while I am not sure whether this was intended or not by the studio, I won't sit here and pretend that it adds some sort of charm to read more

YELP, an Isekai about the pangs of working at a Black Company!? Come save me Work Jesus, for the glory of capitalism!

We've seen shows present this topic before, most particularly and recently with Akane Shimizu's Hataraku Saibou BLACK a.k.a Cells at Work: Code Black, and it's what it is: the etymology of the term "black company" where it's typical practice to hire a large number of employees, exploit them to work large amounts of overtime without overtime pay with poor conditions, verbal abuse and "power harassment" (bullying) by their superiors, threatening them with disrepute if they chose to quit. And you can take all that read more

Finally, we got an isekai that doesn’t treat its viewers as a bunch of horny degenerates, pedophile fetishists, or people who think that good animation is enough to call something a masterpiece. More surprisingly, it’s a comedy show from a person who knows what a good comedy is.

First and foremost, Meikyuu Black Company is a satire. A satire about all of the Japanese corporative culture, hell working conditions, workers’ servility, and chiefs who treats their subordinates as a useless piece of shit – all in a form of 12-eps isekai anime. Yeah, MBC world is not your typical pseudo-European medieval fantasy – it is a read more

Kamina is the protagonist. If that isn't enough to get you to watch this then I don't know what is. After god knows how many Isekai shows with a spineless doormat loser, or a nice guy self-insert genius messiah who brings such great innovations like basic technology and irrigation to Isekailand, it is just so utterly refreshing to see someone this charismatic take the helm of an Isekai.

And it's not just that it's an Isekai. Meikyuu Black Company deviates so much from the standard formula, setting, and even style that to call it a typical Isekai would be a great disservice. The show is a read more
