Publishing company Kadokawa opened an official website for a television anime adaptation of Yomu Mishima's Otome Game Sekai wa Mob ni Kibishii Sekai desu (Trapped in a Dating Sim: The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs) on Thursday, revealing the main staff, cast, first key visual (pictured), and first promotional video. The anime series is scheduled for an April 2022 airing.

Series Composition: Kenta Ihara (Ore dake Haireru Kakushi Dungeon)
Character Design: Masahiko Suzuki (Overlord II sub-character design)

Synopsis
Office worker Leon is reincarnated into a particularly punishing dating sim video game, where women reign supreme and only beautiful men have a seat at the table. But Leon has a secret weapon: he remembers everything from his past life, which includes a complete playthrough of the very game in which he is now trapped. Watch Leon spark a revolution to change this new world in order to fulfill his ultimate desire... of living a quiet, easy life in the countryside! (Source: Seven Seas Entertainment)

Mishima began penning the fantasy romance novel, also known by its short title MobSeka, on the Shousetsuka ni Narou website in October 2017. Micro Magazine began publishing the series through its GC Novels imprint in May 2018. The eighth volume shipped on June 30, with the ninth volume scheduled for release on November 30. MobSeka has a cumulative 760,000 copies of its volumes in print.

A manga adaptation by Jun Shiosato began serialization under Nico Nico Seiga's Dra-Dra-Dragon Age digital manga portal—now Dra-Dra Sharp#—in October 2018. Kadokawa published the sixth volume on July 9. The publisher's ComicWalker platform also serializes the manga.

Seven Seas Entertainment licensed the light novel and manga adaptation in English last April and December, respectively. The third novel volume shipped physically on September 21, with the fourth novel released digitally on November 18. The second manga volume shipped on October 5.

MobSeka placed eighth in the tankobon category in the 2020 Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi! rankings.

Artstyle looks very shoujo-esque, which makes sense I guess?
I wonder how they'll handle the mecha though.

Yes exactly. In that world, men gets all the responsibility but women gets all the privilage.

For some reason, in 2021, this sounds not like a grotesque feminist fantasy, but like the serious goals of modern feminists. Joking aside, a gender-chanded version of this might be a good feminist satire.

oh yeah, many people were hoping to have more otome isekai adaptations for to have something more original and refreshing with a girl MC... the protagonist is a man who wants to change a world of dominant women to fulfill his ultimate desire..."

@G0ldStark This is a male-focused LN adaptation, not otome isekai, take it easy.

I've been waiting for it, but just from the trailer, it looks like Genkoku adaptation

I hope it's not true :(

That wouldn't make sense since the MC is a guy. There is plenty of dating sims for males where woman have all the power and guys are treated like trash. Seducing someone that have a higher status then yourself is a type of power fantasy.

In our years it is more like "take that!" to feminism rather than power fantasy, since many such stories are based not so much on female power as on the sexism of female characters towards MC.

ENGI is the worst studio, Don't care much about them. It's probably gonna be another shit like The Detective is already death or Uzaki chan.

Of course it’s going to get an adaptation. This LN is way too good and way too popular to not get one. But the Art style and that Animation though. And by ENGI? If only the show was released for late Summer or Fall so they could get enough time to do something good but from PV alone I’m not quite sure I should expect a lot to be honest. With the previous adaptations from this studio (Last one, The detective is already dead, that was crap) is almost a certainty that it will be bad...

WTF is with the Art Style and animation 😱
ENGI ruining another good LN with that awful Art compared to the cute and nice Art Style of LN & Manga
And Leon twisted side looks awful compared to Manga

i wasted my time reading this lame self insert isekai powerflexing fantasy. It's already bad to the core, but on the bright side, the story is not that weird like in the summary

the anime adaptation doesnt seem to look good either with horribly downgraded art, there is no excuse wasting your time for this.

These eyes looks so weird. It's like they are staring into my soul. If they tried to make shoujo-esque they failed. It would be better if they just followed the original illustrations or the manga version.

3 of my favorite manga have gotten an adaptation announced within the last week. I couldn't be happier.
(Also, Lux is best... girl? boy? Sentient being.)
I am a bit worried, though, because studio ENGI doesn't have the best track record.
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.

The premise is what's going to save the show as it centers on a guy who wants to be left alone to be in the countryside away from the ridiculously toxic matriarchal world instead of pure revenge. It's got a bad LN adaptation look to it though that might turn folks off though.

Those eyes are nightmare-material, this KV should have dropped on Halloween.

I've read the first 4 LN volumes and know that season 1 is adapting the first 3... and meh. It's not something to be excited about for me at least.

Geezus christ, the visuals and character designs are absolutely horrendous and hideous. Not surprising since this is by ENGI of all studios.

Wait, could you elaborate a bit more on the mecha part? I just thought this was some standard romance show.

With "Otome Game" in the title I always thought this was a female lead LN.

The otome game that he's in is based off of a dating sim with tactical RPG in it. The world's set in a sword, magic, airship and mecha fantasy world. For the most part it is just a romance show but there is going to be some combat at some point in the story.
