The company also opened an official website, revealing the main staff, cast, a teaser visual (pictured), and a promotional video. The anime series will air on Tokyo MX, MBS, and BS NTV in 2021.

Synopsis
High school student Misumi Makoto is called into a fantasy world by the god Tsukuyomi, in order to be a hero. However, powerful others in this world aren't as thrilled to have him there, and they kick him to the edge of the world just as Tsukuyomi declares that he must leave Makoto to find his own way. Now it's up to Makoto to find his own way! (Source: Novel Updates)

Oh shit, one of the few isekai I actually really enjoy!
I'm looking forward to this one. Hopefully it has at least decent production value.
Still waiting on a romance involving a tomboy yandere. Or really any romance where the yandere wins and starts to de-yandere as her love is reciprocated.

Also, I despise runny eggs and anime chins that are sharp enough to alert the TSA.

Ok, the synopsis sort of sounds similar to Shield Hero and because of that, I'll be looking forward to this show xD


My typical experience with Among Us:
Red: "I just saw black vent"
Black: "It's not me bro....It's light blue. He's pretty sus right now"
Me: "What?! I was doing the card swipe!"

I've heard of the novel before and it's mainly gotten a positive reception. Interested although the MC's design is as generic as could get.

When will this entire isekai shitfest stop... they literally recycle the same content with different skins for years at this point.

Adachi to shimamura is a light novel non harem but yuri from current season. Very recommended.

I remember the manga having a weak start, but it had some solid moments here and there. It's most comparable to slime isekai for those who don't know anything about it, with a weaker main cast but stronger takes on the similar scenes (harvest festival, rich old guy sponsoring the MC, otherworlders).

The character shown at the end of the trailer only showed up a few chapters ago in the manga, so it'll likely surpass that.

very interesting... I'm assuming the God who summoned him didnt like him from her/his interaction with the MC when he was summoned, from the looks of it, far from being konosuba so I'll give the WN a shot I guess? Ohh wait.... novelupdate.... is it just a me, or I dont see any romantic development in here? Is it just me? Pls dont tell me it's a bug! Woah damn. Interesting....

Looking forward to the anime.

That's actually intentional, many people in the otherworld talk about how ugly he is compared to other humans (he's average by earth standards supposedly), without spoiling anything, every human in the other world is portrayed as extremely attractive.

Read above, his appearance is actually plot relevant.

There's romance, but it doesn't happen until way later in the web novel, so we won't see it in the first season most likely.

ohh kek, I think novelupdate baited the fuck out of me. Regardless of how slow the romance is, pretty sure novelupdate will still tag it as romance. But then again, if it happened in liek ch. 290 or something then that's pretty much pointless.

WHAT?! An anime adaptation of a Light Novel that's an Isekai? No way. I can't believe it. What a fresh and new idea. And it's a Harem to boot! Even more original! But wait it gets better - the Main Character is a black haired M-shaped young boy! WOAH!

Wow nice, been a while since I've read this but looking forward to seeing Mio and Tomoe banter. Visual in the trailer looking good too. No CGI infested monsters... hopefully.

I remember it was when he infiltrated the school that got me started to get interested in this one, hopefully the adaptation reaches that point.
