As far as isekai stories goes this is unlikely to be a big game changer like shield hero or overlord etc. but it is a decent story with a lot of comedic elements and a bit of a family message. Best comparison is that it is similiar in style to How not to Summon a Demon Lord but without the slave issue this time. Which people seem to have an issue now when it has been present in a lot of titles since the old days.
It is worth a try at least. :)

That studio that everyone is talking about that they don't know is Ekachi Eplika, these people made fumikiri jikan as they're first anime, which was one of the best short animes last year, this is only their second product, pretty impressive the for newbies

"J-POP's music western influences stem from the Beatles, hard rock groups like Deep Purple and Van Halen, early power metal like Helloween and all that influenced X Japan whose impact on the japanese music scene today is always larger than I can measure! "'.
