Synopsis
Seventeen-year-old Hajime Nagumo is your average, everyday otaku. However, his simple life of pulling all-nighters and sleeping in school is suddenly turned upside down when he, along with the rest of his class, is summoned to a fantasy world! They're treated like heroes and tasked with the duty of saving the human race from utter extinction. But what should have been any otaku's wet dream quickly turns into Hajime's nightmare. While the rest of his class are blessed with godlike powers, Hajime's job, Synergist, only has a single transmutation skill. Ridiculed and bullied by his classmates for being weak, he soon finds himself in despair. Will he be able to survive in this dangerous world of monsters and demons with only a glorified blacksmith's level of strength? (Source: J-Novel Club)

Looking forward to rating it 2/10 like the trash that it undoubtably is. The creative/production issues should ensure this becomes a complete dumpster fire, nice.

Tio Clarce she is probably the most mature of the bunch in more ways then one Wink Wink. I like her vary much because of the that. The only thing people dont like about her is probably because she is a pervert but to me thats just hilarious and I cant dislike her for it.

So uhh ..isekai except the whole cast is transported over instead of just the MC?


Yeah, but eventually only the MC alone will become too OP in comparison, and he occupies 90 percent of the screentime.

So, this is not a Double Male Lead Harem show which I'm looking for where there are two OP males in the Main Cast which each gets their own respective harem of loyal female comrades.


If you're cool with reading novels then you should read Sono Yaku, Nochi Ni...
OP MC get's his harem while during his adventures he befriends a guy who has around 196 wives living in multiple kingdoms.

Another season with a isekai... *sigh*
When will it stop?

But seriously though, it doesn't look all that interesting and the studio that did Re:Zero.. Whatever, I'll give it a shot.


We have none in this season

This is just another crappy harem show.

Here are Japanese comments on this series >> https://www.matolabel.net/archives/54264268.html

このクソつまらん作品がアニメ化されて、そんでコケれば、ようやくなろうブームが終わりそうだから、期待している

いじめられっ子がチートもらって人生逆転、という設定の時点で気持ち悪いんだけど
野尻が言ってたように、マジでダメ人間な読者をいたわった設定なんだな

序盤はおもしろい…?1巻読んだが、
・ことあるごとに主人公の不幸さをアピール
・練成師で能力低いなら知識や戦術磨くのは普通だろうに、なぜか周りはそれを批判して不幸さをアピール
・罠利用とか銃使うとか読者の世界では普通なことを、異世界側のレベルを下げることでさも主人公が凄いかのように語る
・強いクラスメイトたちはパニックなのに主人公だけ冷静
・運でチートを手に入れて助かる
・その後の強くなる過程や攻略もチートだより(練成師で最強になるんじゃないの??)

と、作者の悲劇の主人公SUGEEETUEEEにイライラ&くそつまらなかったわ。文章も「ちなみに」とかの付け加えが多い上に、それで主人公の不幸さや凄さを付け加えるからくそうざいし

今、読んでみたけど、普通につまんねえな。延々と設定説明だけされてる感じ
なにより主人公が受け付けない
このすばもそうだけど、いじめられっ子やコミュ症ニートが、異世界行った途端、驚くほど冷静で急に強気になるのはなろうのテンプレなのか?

There's also another Japanese criticizing this Harem crap >> https://www.matolabel.net/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/63TL9Dp.jpg

I know some Japanese and can help translate all those comments, but currently I'm busy, so I'll leave it to anyone here who knows Japanese to translate them if you'd like to do so.

I will definitely not be watching it, as it portrays the MC as being the only one being bullied and ostracized by almost all of his classmates.

For someone like me that prefers to see portrayal and depictions of Nakama Comradeship and MC fighting hand-in-hand with reliable buddies instead of going-it-alone as a cheat OP Mary Sue character, the MC in this series reeks of wish-fulfillment for loser Otakus that are ostracized by society.

I have a male best friend in my past and some casual male friends now, so I view the depiction of this MC having no good male friends in this series as well as him alone creating a harem of cute girls for himself at the expense of other male characters' as deeply disturbing and disgusting.

These announcement threads are always the same:

People shit on it based on a one paragraph synopsis and a picture.


I'm guessing that you haven't read it? it's is pure $hit. The ultimate self insert novel, or author wish fulfillment novel.

Dec 3, 2017 7:09 PM by forexjammer

I've been enjoying the novel so far so I'm glad that an anime is coming out!
I'm just hoping that it can live up to the novel hype.

Of course, it's isekai. Why wouldn't it be isekai? Is Japan ever going to run out of isekai? Of course, it's fucking not going to run out of fucking isekai. When is this trend going to end? Can we at least try to be a little original? Find out in the next episode of Shitty Animu Trends that Never End.



Imagine how much easier it would have been to simply say that in the synopsis. Like fucking hell, you should apply for the marketing director's job for anime.
then Nintendo will sue them for copying Kirby!


Shit, I completely forgot about Kirby.

Interesting. I half-expected this one to get an adaptation to anime but at the same time I am worried. That the anime will suck since most of the time they tend to remove important stuff from the source be it manga or novel or try to make the anime kids friendly, we don't need that kind of crap. This story is addressed to teens above 13 years old so I'd be happy if it remained as such.
