After a fatal encounter with a truck, Takafumi Takaoka's uncle, Yousuke "Ojisan" Shibazaki, lies comatose for 17 years. When he finally regains consciousness, Ojisan begins to ramble in a foreign tongue and reveals that he had been transported to a magical world called Gran Bahamal. Takafumi dismisses his uncle's claims as nonsense until an incantation makes a cup of water hover in the air. In a flash of brilliance, the pair creates a YouTube channel to showcase Ojisan's magical abilities.

The responsibility now falls on Takafumi's shoulders to acquaint Ojisan with everything that has transpired during his absence, including getting him up to speed with the internet, new technology, and surprisingly, the outcome of the '90s console war—the result of which was especially distressing for a hardcore SEGA fan. With Ojisan's wisdom from his other world experiences, they grow their YouTube channel and tackle online comments and trolls. The journey of this uncle-nephew duo promises to be anything but conventional.

Isekai has been a scourge on the anime landscape for some time now and sadly shows no signs of slowing down. I'm not a fan, as you can tell, as for me, in 90%+ of cases if the story was just a normal fantasy world without the intruder from another world, it would be better for it. Not to mention that so much of this crap gets made that it all just melds into this homogenous blob of off-brand European fantasy, generic protagonists and proposterous titles. So hearing that Isekai Ojisan exists as a comedy series that turns the genre on its head and does ...

Mixed Feelings
Well, the series finally finished. It's difficult when you're covering comedy because comedy will hit differently for different people, though I guess that's true of drama to some extent, at least if we're talking about the really sad stuff. All that is to say that, yeah, this got a few chuckles out of me, but it still felt pretty one-note throughout. That's not a bad thing because it's a pretty good note - I like the idea that we're catching up with an isekai protagonist after he's returned to his world, and that he retains his powers. It's silly and fun, and the side characters ...

This show snatched defeat from the jaws of the passable. It is a HUGE disappointment. Initially, the uncle and nephew's banter was pretty good, and the uncle in general was hilarious. I enjoyed having a different perspective on the classic garbage isekai story up until episodes 5ish: halfway through the show I fully internalized that it is not a slow burn towards the uncle's self-actualization or part of his journey to perhaps return, or bring his companions to his world, but is instead a watch party for a boring story about a man refusing to grow up.

Is this perhaps a commentary on garbage isekai? ...
