Synopsis
Touya Mochizuki was accidentally killed, and as an apology, God allows him to be reborn in a fantasy world and will grant him any one wish he desires. And so, Touya chooses to keep his smartphone in the next world. In his second chance at life, he befriends many important figures and comes across the world's secret. He inherits the legacy of an ancient civilization and travels around nonchalantly while possessing powers that rival this world's kings.

So he could have wished for anything and what does this bright young guy do? He wishes to keep his fucking smartphone...

These light novel plots are getting more retarded by the minute and it's not even funny anymore.

Man, Death March, Knight's & Magic, and Smartphone? I guess anime studios have finally caught on that Isekai stories are easy attractions. Web novels/light novel adaptations are like a Godsend for these people.

The girls are so cute, but I must resist as it's not even hiding that it's a bad LN adaptation.

Shit has "smartphone" in the title. That's like a white flag with "cancer" spelled out in blood on it.
TEN COMMANDMENTS:
1) If Evangelion and Psycho-Pass are his only 10s, he probably also worships Tool and smells like cheesy puffs 2) Freudian psychosis =/= good writing 3) Moe blob art style is only ok in pure slice-of-life comedy 4) It's ok to enjoy shounen. Having fun is allowed 5) It is not ok to enjoy isekai (jk, it is, I just fucking hate it) 6) Creator breakdown =/= good writing 7) A story does not have to be wrapped up with a bow. Life is messy, why would a good story need to be tidy? 8) InuYasha is proto-Twilight 9) Ecchi CAN be good, but is almost always an abomination 10) If God is real, They allowed Super Kid to happen, so fuck Them

Personally I want to see that one where the girl reincarnates as an ordinary spider get an adaptation.

Him taking his smartphone isn't that stupid. He could use it as a trade item or just to make himself look special.

The concept sounds strange.. The MC also sounds stupid when he wished his smartphone. I wonder if there's even electricity in that fantasy world, or you could charge your smartphone using magic, hmm.

Also there are too many reincarnated to another world concept nowadays. I hope we got another fresh concept to become another boom soon.

I feel like "isekai" shows are like a hit or miss for me, and this one seems like it could be a miss. I'll watch it, but with low expectations.

I only knew about this LN due to Steiner tweeting about it all the time but it's actually made me kinda interested in this.
I'll probably give it a shot, it's a silly idea for a plot but that just might work if they nail the right tone.

It doesn't. It's just another Isekai with a fresh coat of paint to make it seem different. It's complete and utter shite.

Oh well, then it's kinda disappointing. I hoped for something KonoSuba-like.
Still, I'm going to give it a try. I like harems as long as protagonist isn't really bad.

That cover and thus the MC infuriates me at my very core.
The premise itself feels like insulting my intelligence.

Holy shit why does trash like this get adapted? I know why, its because of Japanese market and target demo eating that stuff up

Don't see how that is a not really considering that describes Rezero perfectly - "Just Another Isekai Harem + Suffering"

Doesn't sound that bad, but the picture gives off the impression that it will be focused too much on comedy, so I'll wait and see. But I can't shake the fact that the MC looks like a dumbass.

Okay, this is a surprise. The series is mostly SoL so it never occurred to me this will get an adaptation.

This isn't surprising because I've been in a convo with a friend of mine and there were few examples that are pretty much even more stupid than this.

But I might watch it, for fun and giggles I suppose. It doesn't even look like it will hurt.

Well who pretty much cares at this point? Oh, nobody xD (besides there's no more originality, and as I said, there are even more stupid examples than this... this sounds better than the one LN where the fucking MC dies for his damn love for his vending machine, thus him turning into a vending machine as a wish. No joke, that actually exists)

Then do not watch it if you feel like it insults your intelligence. xD

I really wish these Isekai things would stop. There are plenty of garbage Isekai LNs - but young people [junior/high school] seem to love them - so anime keeps coming. ;;
Boy gets killed/dies → reborn at Isekai - what an unique setting. That smartphone wish makes it even more retarded.

Sounds like an extremely generic Isekai crap. Description seems like the main will be overpowered. (Which means it will get boring as he pwns just everyone.) Girls seem like your usual boring harem-girls. Don't need this.

I'd prefer good shows set in their own fantasy world without someone getting reincarnated/teleported there (Densetsu no Yuusha or Alderamin) or with people travelling there with a connection between Japan and the fantasy world (Outbreak Company, Gate). Those were fun and enjoyable.

Re:Zero was cancer and it seems like a lot of people want to profit of it's success by making similar stuff. Only good anime with someone reincarnated in a fantasy world was KonoSuba since it was a parody on the other usual crap.

Sounds like utter crap. What's the point of a phone without charging, reception and internet access? I miss the chars that were accomplishing something because of who they were, not baseless setting bullshit.

I wouldn't think so... there's only 2 blonde kawaii, fappable heroines, so I doubt it.

I think the main interest are the one who's wearing something like a traditional kimono...

SOL?!

Why is the cover photo so misleading?!

WHY?!

There's nothing that could go wrong with SoL + Oppai...

OP MC that fools around doing things that have no real purpose. It's good on what it's trying to do, but if you're expecting some sort of a cohesive plot in the long run, meh, just look for something else.
