An official website opened for a TV anime adaptation of Mine and Kabocha's Nidome no Jinsei wo Isekai de ([New Life+] Young Again in Another World) light novel series on Tuesday. The anime is scheduled to air in October 2018.

Synopsis
When death tapped Renya Kunugi on the shoulder, he smiled and went willingly. After enjoying a nice, long life of 94 years, he was looking forward to shutting his eyes for the last time. He was, therefore, understandably upset when he woke up again in an empty space, devoid of memories, with a young girl in a tunic rambling on and on about how she's God. So, he did what any reasonable person would have done under those circumstances: he sent the girl flying with a kick to the face. It turned out that the girl was indeed God, and she was in a pinch. She urgently needed someone to do some interdimensional Resource smuggling, and Renya fit the bill.

His mission: cross the boundary into another world, then chill for a few decades. God would handle the rest. To sweeten the deal, she offered him an eighteen-year-old body and a whole laundry list of ludicrously powerful skills, yet he remained hesitant. Then, she mentioned the food—an exotic world comes with exotic delicacies—and this sealed the deal. The next thing he knew, he was standing in a foreign land, younger, stronger, and more clueless than ever. Will he survive this world? And more importantly, will the world survive him?

Man Fall season is going to be bad so far. Only a couple interesting shows that are originals.

As for Isekai this is skippable at least the slime one has a more entertaining synopsis to the point where I want to watch it.

And the originality award goes too...

Isekai trash...as always.

Granted in the anime industry there is basically never anything at this point not based on something else and the fact that I'm not a harem fan withstanding what does being in another world have to do with plot holes and logic gaps because it can't really be an isekai if it wasn't in another world also my oppinion withstanding i posted that clearly pointing out that it makes no sense to take the time to trash a series not even just specifically this one without taking the time to read them like you said people aren't gonna read something thet don't find interesting but even saying that if they don't find something interesting why take the time to pointlessly bash it without any actual reason or motive if someone that read it and was unhappy with it then it makes sense to complain but if they weren't interested to begin with it just serves to be counter productive for the ones posting and the ones reading said comments P.S chuunibyu mofos XD i like the way you think my friend

I'm surprised how much hate for this i already see in the comments if you guys have enough time to trash this series why not try it before you do so because its actually enjoyable and as far as the isekai genre pretty good I'm not saying anyone has to like it or anything but at least try it before you judge it because from what i can see in the comments most of you clearly haven't read it


99% of the time, the light novel will usually always be "good" even if the anime is complete garbage. Nobody will bother reading a 300 page book if they aren't interested in it some way shape or form. Watching moving pictures is pretty easy on the other hand.

Not only that, any anime with harem, isekai, op is without a doubt influenced by another anime or light novel, because that's the trait that every other light novel shares. A wide cast of girls so everyone can find their perfect waifu, (except harem girls are outdated af), an OP main character that all you chuunibyo mofos dream about being, and another world because that's the most convenient easy route whenever you run into a plothole or logic gap.

Renya Kunugi character design remind me to Glenn Radars from Rokudenashi anime....
granted we only have the image to go from but it looks like the animation style of aldamarin in the sky

May 23, 5:55 AM by DemonLordGil

i felt i should point out that this is by the same studio as trinity seven

Akerakai said:
I can already tell it gonna be a low budget anime by the coloring
And the girls look average af some are closw to ugly

When will the good harems with good budget and good art and good looking girls and original non copy pasted good/decent story come back?
Like C3,ladies versus butlers,absolute duo,kore wa zombie desu ka,haganai,serei tsukai no blade dance,trinity seven .....

May 23, 5:50 AM by DemonLordGil

Okay, tsundere will win on this one... Gotta watch it!

That over the top description is the main reason I'll check out this Isekai.

May 23, 3:04 AM by Hiro-

I don't know about the work, but the title itself is one of the least original I've ever seen lol. Peoples complain about long titles, I'd take a longer title any day over "that".
Why not just use "Isekai" as a title next time while you're at it~.

May 23, 2:29 AM by Zefyris

I'm sure a brain tissue sample of whomever is greenlighting these things will reveal rabies, roundworms, and concentrated desperation.

May 22, 11:26 PM by Red_Tuesday

The promotional art alone makes me cringe. Didn't even bother reading the article. Easy pass.

More isekai.. more OP MC.... More harem.... Oh well... I wish they would adapt a unique isekai novel into an anime..

Wait... Is there even a unique isekai in the first place...? XD

There is. It's called "Now and Then, Here and There". That's it. Literally the only one.
I doubt it was even a title.. but when i search it on Google, i really didn't expect it actually exist.. XD
The synopsis really is unique for an isekai.. maybe i should try it later..

Fucking outlaw the creation of harem isekai.
The industry, fans, citizens of Japan as a country are perpetuating the destruction of their own integrity towards art. Anyone who chooses to watch this and gives it money is giving it and shows like it a reason to continue existing. You are the problem.


There is no problem at all, you have no rights to insult people who like isekai, people watch whatever they want and jpn studios do whatever they want, is not your business. There are other genre per season you can pick up if you don't like this one, isekai are just a fraction.

I'm one of these iseki lovers, or moreover a fantasy lover, and always isekai and fantasy are the same thing, i really like this subgenre expecially in a medieval setting, and some isekai are extremely good and original, this one is not a masterpiece but the story is very good, with comedy, action and drama. 2018 will have much more isekai expecially this summer and fall, and all are very good adaptions.

you know, commenting the exact same thing on every single new isekai anime thread is not gonna stop more isekai anime from growing



The same shit with different title of course it's fucking growing only brain dead like you buy this stuff

He or she isn't brain dead. I don't even know why you said that. You know whats funny, this show is probably gonna be one of the most popular anime during the season like most isekai's are. Look at Death March and smartphone, everyone says they are trash yet they all watch it. I don't know why people keep complaining about the same thing over and over. How about you(not just you) just ignore it if you don't like it. There's other animes to watch instead of complaining
